Marsha Blackburn Report: Cracking Down on Illegal Immigration

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Tennessee is no stranger to the tragedies that occur when criminal illegal immigrants get behind the wheel. In 2018, 22 year-old Pierce Corcoran of Knoxville was fatally struck in a head-on collision caused by an illegal alien who was later deported.

In 2019, another Knoxville resident, Debbie Burgess, was killed in a hit and run accident caused by an illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history. These tragedies are not limited to Tennessee, which is why I introduced legislation that will make our communities safer.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
