Quotes on the Issues

Immigration

Cindy believes America has the right to secure its borders and control who enters our country.  She believes illegal immigration must come to an end and supports President Trump’s plans to build a wall on America’s southwestern border and to increase funding to enforce U.S. immigration laws.  Immigrants who wish to live and work here must enter our great country the same way others have in previous generations—by following the law.

Budget

In 1995, Congress failed to pass a balanced budget requirement by just one vote—the national debt was $4.9 trillion. Today the debt is more than $21 trillion, and it’s time to get serious. Growing up in rural Mississippi, Cindy was taught you don't spend money you don't have. As your U.S. Senator, nobody will work harder to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Mississippi families and small businesses must balance their budgets each month. It’s time for Washington to be held to the same standard!
