Location: Unknown

* Sen. Beavers believes she it is no longer even a question about the legality of immigration, but a matter of economic survival for the legal citizens of Tennessee and the United States. She believes in legal immigration, but thinks that for too long we have fostered a system where hard-working Tennesseans go without jobs while paying taxes to support illegal immigrants.
* She is the co-sponsor of a bill that would require sheriffs to check citizenship status of criminals and to notify homeland security when they believe a criminal is an illegal alien.
* She is the co-sponsor of a bill that required employers to verify the citizenship status of their employees.
* She is the co-sponsor of the resolution that praised the state of Arizona for finally saying "enough is enough,' and passing their own immigration law when the federal government refuses to do its job.
