Tillis: Now is the Time to Act on Immigration | Eastern North Carolina Now

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C.     Today, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) spoke on the Senate floor about the Secure and Succeed Act, a bill introduced by Senator Tillis that will strengthen border security, provide a permanent solution for DACA, reform family sponsorship policy, and reallocate the Diversity Visa lottery.


    Senator Tillis on the Secure and Succeed Act:

  • "The Secure and Succeed Act is a well-structured, four pillar solution that has been very much instructed by conversations with my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and that the President will support. And I know the President can convince our colleagues in the House to get it to his desk."

    Senator Tillis on the need to pass immigration reform:

  • "Now is the time to act. Let's do something different and actually produce a result. Let's not talk about it and say we all tried, let's produce a result and provide certainty for the DACA population waiting for us to act, secure our border, and modernize our broken immigration system."
