Kingston on Immigration

US Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA Dist. 1) spoke to a group of seniors this morning at the Marshes on Skidaway Island. They talked about everything from prescription drug plans to rising gas prices to illegal immigration reform.

Kingston is currently fighting for tougher national laws that would help police deport illegal immigrants, require illegals who are here to obtain work permits and help save millions of dollars in taxpayer money.

"What we have to do, regardless of how legislation works on a state or federal level, we have to say this is the law and we have to enforce it," he said. "One reason we are getting bogged down is we don't have certainty and clarity."

Kingston praised the State of Georgia for passing tougher immigration laws. The bill was signed by the governor earlier this week.
