Kevin Crow, OK

Name: Kevin Crow
District: Senate – Oklahoma
Party: Republican

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 – Whatever we do, we must NEVER grant an amnesty to people who entered this country illegally. If these individuals came to this country illegally, what makes you think that they would ever be “law abiding” citizens once we gave them an amnesty. In addition, we must not create 11 million or more competitors for American jobs by granting illegal immigrants an amnesty. In order to stem the tide of illegal immigration, we must tighten border security and we must raise the fines (and enforce them) against employers who knowingly employ illegal immigrants. If a country cannot control its borders and determine who it allows to enter legally, can it ever really be considered a truly independent country that can look after the best interest of its citizens?

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 – The job of any government is to put the interests of its citizens first. Thus, the first (and indeed, the only) question that we should ask when considering the matter of immigration must be, is it in the best interest of American citizens. I understand the role of an elected official, and so as a U.S. Senator, I will always put the interests of Americans first, and never put the interests of non-citizens ahead of citizens.

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.?
