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 would oppose such legislation so long as the worker remains in the status of illegal alien.
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 will oppose such an increase until our borders are closed! Only then would I consider whether an expansion of the overall annual number of legal permanent residents would be in the best interest of the United States.
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 – Guest workers are too easily “lost.” According to the recent figures compiled by the Pew Hispanic Center, almost 1/2 of the current illegal population arrived here on work or tourist visas.
