Name: Jason Weger
District: Senate – Oklahoma
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 – Having 12 million illegal aliens in this country is a threat to our economy and national security. We do not have enough good paying jobs for our citizens who are here legally. We must strictly enforce our current immigration laws that are already in place.
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 – We are over 18 trillion dollars in debt and our resources are stretched thin. Adding more people to the mix does not help our situation.
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 – Most of the guest workers do not leave even when their guest visa expires. Most of our illegal immigration issues stem from guest workers who do not follow the rules and leave the country once their visa expires. We need to stop admitting guest workers. We are in no position to support guest workers in this country.
