Skip to comments.A Different Perspective (George Allen Statement On Illegal Immigration)
Posted on 05/18/2005 8:55:47 AM PDT by GOPGuide
As part of the Iraq supplemental appropriations bill, Congress voted to support legislation for the use of federal troops on the Mexican-American borders. The National Border Control Council and the Fraternal Order of Police endorsed the legislation mandating the stationing of U.S. troops on the Mexican-American border to support the U.S. Border Patrol.
On a more personal note, Virginia Sen. George Allen said, "Legal immigration has been and is the lifeblood of our nation. My own mother followed the process and emigrated to the U.S. from Tunisia after World War II. I have the greatest respect for the ingenuity, discipline and determination that so many of our newest citizens show in their work and lives."
"But illegal immigration is not only unfair to the thousands of men and women who waited their turn and worked hard to come to America, but is also a threat to our nation and state socially and economically," Allen said.
"I support the strict enforcement of our immigration laws and hope that legislators in Virginia and my colleagues in Congress will join me in supporting laws to make illegal immigration more difficult and unappealing."

PS: "Strict enforcement of immigration laws" is Beltway speak for Deporting Illegal Aliens.
PPS: Allen has said on the radio he is opposed to Bush's Guest Worker Program even though the Bush plan doesn't offer eventual GreenCards to Illegals.
PPPS: Allen is not a cosponsor of ANY amnesty bill in Congress such as the "Dream Act", Agjobs, or similar
Allen has my vote if he runs.
Illegal immigration is no different than bank robbery.
I think he would make a great President!!!
See my tagline
Beavis: "Yeah. Heh-heh. He rocks!"
"Allen has my vote if he runs. "
He's making a lot of the right sounds. Someone suggested Allen/Rice, I think that would be a great ticket.
Rice/Allen would work for me too.
Allen for President PONG
Allen would have to fall submissively in line with the open borders crowd to be given Rice to run with.
