Immigration Positions and Views
Immigration, a General Statement

South Carolina has been hit particularly hard by illegal immigration. Each year, we spend more than $186 million to educate, provide medical care, and incarcerate illegal aliens. Washington has failed to deal with the immigration problem, leaving the States to fend for themselves. That is why Tim Scott has sponsored immigration legislation that is modeled after the Arizona law.

Tim will make strict immigration reform a top priority in Congress. He will fight to remove the incentives, like health care and education, which attract illegal immigrants to our state. Tim will also make sure our state law enforcement agencies are given the proper training and tools they need to enforce immigration laws. Tim is committed to strengthening penalties for employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. Tim will work to promote patriotic assimilation by making English the official language of government, and insist that new immigrants learn English.
