In case you had any doubt about Yancy's stance on immigration after looking at his Web site (under the issue of immigration, he says, "Secure the Texas borders with all means necessary."), this video ought to clear it up.
He tells TCM that he doesn't dislike our friends in Canada or Mexico, but the U.S. needs fences from coast to coast on both the northern and southern borders. And, it may "devioff" his message of fiscal conservatism, but he says law enforcement should get the resources needed to secure the border. "They need to have the authorization to do what's necessary to secure that border including to and not limited the use of deadly force," Yancy says. "If people coming across that border know that their life's in jeopardy, I think they rethink that decision."
