MY POSITION ON IMMIGRATION
At the outset, let me be clear: I
am 100% in favor of LEGAL immigration. That is what made
America the Great Nation it is today and what allowed people like myself
to come here and build our very own 'American Dream.'
I also want to be very clear that I enjoy
'Latin Culture.' I particularly like the 'Plantainos', rice 'n black
beans and all the great cooking -- so reminiscent of my own Island home
of Jamaica -- that I enjoyed when I lived in Miami! During that time I
had many cultured Latino intimates from throughout the Caribbean whose
friendship I treasured. My wife Les, loves to dance the Salsa and even
instructed in Latin Dance before I met her.
On the other hand I am committed to doing
everything I can to shut down The Mexican Invasion, close our Southern
Borders and keep those illegal trespassers, drug smugglers, criminals
and free-loaders out of our country. I AM ABSOLUTELY OPPOSED TO AMNESTY
FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.
I am a naturalized citizen. It took me
six (6) years to get here legally from the Island of Jamaica. I had to
become a Canadian Citizen before I could cross the Detroit Bridge
legally, on the 4th. of July 1975 and come here -- with my medical diploma
and specialist certificate in hand. (I was bringing an asset to America
and did not intrude as a free-loader).
And I am going to make sure that everyone
does it my way: THAT IS, CROSSES OUR BORDER LEGALLY.
Moreover, I intend to do away with our
"Press Button One For English" travesty. ALL PERSONS IMMIGRATING TO THE
U.S. WILL BE REQUIRED TO TAKE & PASS AN ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TEST
within one year of their legal arrival upon our shores! I support a
Federal Constitutional Amendment to make English the Official Language
of the U.S.
Do not forget either, that the current
uncontrolled stream of murderous, drug-smuggling thugs coming up from Mexico represents
a threat of terrorist infiltration of our country. Moreover, the cost of
these illegal immigrants and their families to our social services
sector in health-care and welfare expenses, etc. far outweighs any
benefit to our economy from discounted wages for unskilled labor.
Let's be frank: Obama & the democrats
favor the illegals because they want to purchase their votes. It's as
simple as that.
My plan involves closing all the borders
including Florida's ocean boundaries, guarding those international zones
with armed forces, rounding up the illegal trespassers and sending them
home to join the line. "Anchor Babies" can stay here with legal family relatives in
informal "Foster-Care" (at no cost to the U.S.) or return home with
illegal parents to re-enter the U.S. at their option upon achieving
Meantime I support a Constitutional
Amendment to deny Citizenship status to persons born here of illegal
parents. And I also plan to stiffen and fully prosecute laws against
employers of illegal interlopers.
I challenge you to question my
competitors on this issue and get a straight answer that clearly
protects the rights of legal citizens!
