James Comer on Immigration

 

 


Support the wall; oppose amnesty & sanctuary cities

The inflow of illegal aliens is a serious problem. I am opposed to amnesty, sanctuary cities, and believe the best solution to our immigration problem is to build a wall to protect our borders.

Vocally in support of building a wall on the southern border

I have been very vocal in my support of building a wall on the southern border, opposing any illegal amnesty, and locating every illegal in the US and quickly returning them to wherever they came from. I believe that the free market is the best environment for industry to grow, and that the government needs to get out of the way of industry to let the free market prosper. We need to significantly reduce the regulatory burden on our US businesses.

Supports illegals returning to country of origin.

Comer supports the PVS survey question on immigration reform

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
