Crackdown on Illegal Immigration -- Illegal immigration is a crime that puts an undue burden on our education, healthcare, and other services. Taxpayers cannot continue to foot the bill for illegal immigrants. We must allow our state law enforcement to work with federal officials to detain and deport illegal aliens. All state forms and tests should be in English only. An employee verification system should be established at the national level so that our state businesses have an efficient and valid method by which they can determine a person's legal status in our country.
Toughen Laws for Child Sexual Predators -- According to the FBI, internet crime is growing fast, and children are the fastest growing victim pool. The problem is growing so fast that the FBI's Innocent Images program has become the bureau's second-largest operation -- second only to the September 11 terrorism case. We cannot allow sexual predators to escape conviction based on technical loopholes in our state laws. I will support measures to make sure that our state laws in South Carolina are the toughest in the country to protect our children.
