Mark Darr, Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor, issued the following statement congratulating Secure Arkansas for successfully obtaining the required number of signatures for a constitutional ballot initiative. The ballot initiative seeks to prevent illegal aliens from receiving public funds such as Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other public assistance.
"I commend Secure Arkansas for their hard work on obtaining the required number of signatures to have this issue placed on the ballot and be voted on by Arkansans. I whole-heartedly support this issue as it affects every person to every corner of our great state. I call on my opponent to support this ballot initiative and to fight for tougher immigration reform while working diligently to protect the security, property, and rights of every Arkansan.
