Fighting Illegal Immigration
Dawn believes we need to put an immediate end to illegal immigration. She cast the deciding vote to prevent passage of the bill that would have granted taxpayer subsidized tuition to illegal immigrants. Dawn also stood firm against Nashville's proposed sanctuary city ordinance, and has sponsored legislation to strengthen Tennessee's existing anti-sanctuary city laws and to hold local officials accountable if they violate those laws. She will continue to stand firm against granting in-state tuition to illegal immigrants and will continue to fight against attempts to create sanctuary cities in Tennessee.
