Candidate Notes

Oppose Amnesty: I oppose amnesty 

Support Attrition Through Enforcement: I support enforcement of existing laws. 

Oppose Sanctuary Policies & Other Incentives: I would need more information about different state policies and how this would be implemented. 

Oppose Birthright Citizenship: Everyone who is in this country should be here legally, and everyone should play by the rules. 

Oppose Visa Lottery: Instead of a random process, we should have a defined policy for any type of visa. 

Support a Reduction in Total Immigration: I oppose having a simplisic, arbitrary number. I do think we need limitations on levels of immigration that are developed in a thoughful way.
