“We have mounting grassroots support for Conservatives to really start providing solutions to this problem as opposed to complaining about the problem,” Bailey told KTRH.
Bailey wants Congress to take action on the Senate’s Gang of Eight immigration bill. He says doing nothing would be a huge mistake.
“Kicking the can down the road, which has been done since 1986, does nothing but make the problem worse,” Bailey stated.

“I believe it’s important for Republicans in Congress to take the lead on this, to present solutions,” Bailey explained.
Bailey says if Congress takes its time on the bill his business will be affected.
