District: House – CA 03
1. There are approximately 12 million illegal aliens currently residing in the United States, many taking jobs from unemployed Americans. Will you oppose or support legislation that would grant any form of work authorization to illegal aliens?
A: Oppose – I believe that we need to enforce current law, enforce the border, and then establish a slow and deliberate process to incorporate illegals in to society. No amnesty.
2. Each year the United States gives legal permanent residency (green cards) to another 1 million immigrants who often fill jobs at lower wages. Will you oppose or support legislation that would increase the overall number of immigrants (legal permanent residents/green card holders) admitted each year to the U.S.?
A: Oppose – I do not see a need for increases in the numbers of current guest workers. I believe those who do immigrate legally must have a sponsor for 10 years, not be eligible for any social service benefits for 10 years.
3. Despite growing welfare rolls and chronic youth joblessness, the United States admits over 700,000 guest workers annually to work in numerous professions. Will you oppose or support legislation that would increase the overall number of guest workers admitted each year to the U.S.?
A: Oppose – As above, I don’t see a need for an increase in guest workers. We need to be able to fill technical positions with American workers. That will take concerted effort to improve their education. We should not be importing engineers or other highly skilled workers from abroad when we have schools to train professionals domestically.
