Over the last few days liberal groups have bombarded my office with phone calls and emails in response to a video taken during one of my town hall meetings in Murfreesboro.
In the video, a young girl asks me what I can do about her father being deported for coming to this country illegally.
As a father, I am certainly empathetic to her situation. But as a Member of Congress, I swore to uphold the laws of our country. Our nation has always had a generous immigration policy, but we simply cannot condone individuals coming here illegally.
I felt I had a responsibility to be truthful, even if that meant delivering difficult news.
Unfortunately, my office has come under attack by liberal groups outside our state who just don’t understand that in Tennessee, we respect the rule of law. Will you help me fight back against these far left organizations by donating today?
When I ran for Congress I promised to take a stand and fight for values important to Tennesseans. As conservatives, we must never compromise our principles! Because if we don’t hold the line, who will?
I promise that voters can count on me not to buckle under pressure to implement a massive new amnesty program.
