Legislative Agenda Topic 2: Immigration

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in America are preserved by a government that is of, by, and for the people. This is the exceptional American heritage. In spite of failings, it has been charitably offered to the world’s oppressed and persecuted for over two centuries.

The TCCB encourages the continuation of this heritage, welcomes migrants embracing the American dream, and respects the enforcement of laws which preserve the common good.
