Curry Todd (R-TN)

Tennessee State Rep. Curry Todd Compared Immigrants To Rats. According to ColorLines, “While discussing a state-funded children’s insurance program at a Fiscal Review Committee meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, Republican state Rep. Curry Todd, likened undocumented immigrants to rats. ‘They can go out there like rats and mul­ti­ply then, I guess’ Todd mumbled in to a microphone. He was upset that the state’s CoverKids program that provides free health coverage to children under the age 18 was not verifying the immigration statuses of pregnant women.” [ColorLines, 11/11/10]
