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 – People who have followed the law and are waiting for citizenship should be first to receive it. It is only fair. Our southern border security must be improved in its ability to ascertain if the immigrants coming here are criminals in the country from which they are fleeing.

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 – If we had a free market, the number of legal immigrants admitted each year to the U.S. should not be limited. As it is, the market has been distorted. At this point, we cannot sustain excessive influxes of low wage workers while entry level prospective employees here in the U.S. remain unemployed.

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.?
