Cagle: Trump’s priorities in State of the Union align with mine


Leading candidate for governor shares goals on immigration, technical education, infrastructure

Casey Cagle, the leading conservative Republican for governor, said today that President Trump’s inaugural State of the Union address outlined an agenda that will strengthen America and that will dovetail with the reforms he’ll implement as governor.

“Our president has prioritized the most important issues, and he continues to deliver on the promises he made to the American people,” said Cagle. “From proposing greater education choices to working to fix a broken immigration system and deporting criminal illegals, from passing tax cuts to prioritizing a modern infrastructure, Trump’s stated priorities mirror my own vision of conservative leadership for Georgia. I am encouraged to finally have a president who sees beyond the Beltway and understands the needs of Georgians.”

  • President Trump is focused on securing our nation’s borders and fixing a broken immigration system; Cagle has led to pass one of nation’s toughest crackdowns on illegal immigration which included outlawing and defunding sanctuary cities and campuses. Cagle has led the fight in Georgia to ensure criminal illegals are deported.
  • President Trump has prioritized investment in apprenticeship models for our nation’s students; Cagle has led to create the College and Career Academy Network as well as the first high school German Apprenticeship Program in the nation to advance career training for Georgia’s students.
  • President Trump is leading to modernize our nation’s infrastructure; Cagle has fought to advance Georgia’s infrastructure with data-driven analytics and has campaigned on a future-oriented 10-year strategic infrastructure plan.

“We want the same thing,” Cagle said. “We want greater economic prosperity for everyone; we want hard-working Georgians to get ahead.”

Cagle has pledged to cut taxes in his first 100 days, deliver a comprehensive 10-year infrastructure plan, and create 500,000 new jobs in the first four years of his administration. He has also made workforce development a top priority, and will continue to lead on developing a world-class education system in Georgia.
