Candidate Notes

Tarkanian has said he opposed the DREAM Act, although on Wednesday he said he believes military service should qualify immigrants for U.S. citizenship.

"I certainly don't agree with it because it wasn't passed in Congress," Tarkanian replied.

Pressed on whether he would support the DREAM Act, Tarkanian said he likes parts of it for military members "who put their lives on the line for our country." But he wouldn't address other aspects of the proposal, including for students.

Tarkanian said he supported a harsh law in Arizona, including profiling of Hispanics by police, who could ask if they're in the country legally if stopped for any reason. 

Tarkanian also argued for cutting health, education and other benefits for illegal immigrants in order "to take away the incentives for people coming into the country illegally."
