Like you, Ken understands the need to crack down welfare payments to illegal immigrants and to protect our border. Studies have shown that about half of Texas' immigrant population is on some kind of welfare. And with our state facing another budget shortfall, we just can't afford these multi billion dollar costs anymore. Ken believes that illegal immigration is bankrupting our state and supports eliminating in-state tuition for illegal immigrants at Texas colleges and universities and denying welfare benefits to illegal immigrants. And to Ken, its common sense to think that employers should be verifying the immigration status of every employee. And as our State Representative, he'll vote to continue to invest funds into putting boots on the ground to protect our border.
