District: House – TN 07
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 – We have American workers who need jobs. It is time to start putting Americans first!
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 – Bringing in foreign workers to replace hard working Americans, at a lower cost, is not patriotic. We should be focusing on ensuring that Americans have jobs, have benefits, and have an opportunity to fulfill the American dream!
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 – Our national unemployment numbers are sickening and I refuse to support legislation to make it worse. Once again I state that it is time the US Government remembers their duty to the common defense and general welfare of this nation’s citizens; not to foreign workers. We need to focus on ensuring hard working Americans have jobs, not foreign workers.
