Strongest anti-illegal immigration law in MS history

Phil Bryant has proven his belief in the rights America's founders intended. As Lt. Governor, he fulfilled a campaign promise for real immigration reform in Mississippi--the strongest anti-illegal immigration law in Mississippi's history.

As State Auditor, he authored a report that found that illegal immigration costs Mississippi $25 million every year.

E-verify at work; proof of citizenship in traffic stops

As the federal government continues to turn a blind eye to the problem, I will urge our lawmakers to pass legislation that will make sure available jobs are only going to people who are here legally. While E-Verify has been successful in helping employers check the status of their employees, we must do more. I will continue to support Arizona-style immigration legislation so that anyone stopped for a motor vehicle violation or another primary offense can be asked to provide proof of citizenship.
