Hagerty Statement on Biden’s Executive Actions and Legislative Proposal to Overhaul Immigration System

January 21, 2021

WASHINGTON – United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) today released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s executive actions and legislative proposal to overhaul America’s immigration system

“The legislative proposal to grant amnesty and a path to citizenship to those who have come here illegally, and the executive action today to halt construction of the border wall pose significant security risks, encourage uncontrolled immigration, and undermine opportunities for American workers. These proposals inspire lawlessness, enable the flow of illegal drugs and human trafficking, and threaten Tennessee communities already hurting due to the ongoing pandemic. Our priorities must be to continue to secure our border, strengthen our legal immigration system, and protect jobs for hardworking Americans.”
