National Republican Senatorial Committee: Tammy Baldwin’s dangerous immigration record

Contact: Calvin Moore, cmoore@NRSC.org

Tammy Baldwin needs to come back to reality about her record on immigration. Baldwin has fully embraced dangerous and misguided immigration policies that are putting Wisconsin families at risk.

Tammy Baldwin voted for amnesty, voted three times to support sanctuary cities, voted against building the wall, and even voted against Kate’s Law, which would have stiffened penalties to keep violent criminal aliens from returning to our country.

If Wisconsin wants to fix America’s broken immigration system, they need to fire Tammy Baldwin and elect a proven leader they can trust, Leah Vukmir.
