Scott Brown on Immigration
Republican Jr Senator
Shaheen attacked Brown's record on abortion rights; Brown, while senator for Massachusetts, supported the Blunt Amendment, which would have allowed any employer with moral objections to opt out of requiring to cover birth control in 2012.
He goes on to say that the "pro-amnesty policies of President Obama and Sen. Shaheen" have caused the crisis at the border: "We respond with compassion, but it is time for us to secure the border once and for all, and tell people who try to come here illegally that we intend to enforce the law," Brown concludes.
It's Brown's most policy-focused ad yet--most of his previous ads have focused on an element of his personal narrative as well, as he works to introduce himself to N.H. voters. And it touches on an issue that looks to be a winner for him both in the primary and the general election campaign: immigration reform and the ongoing crisis at the border.
Warren said she strongly supports the Dream Act.
Gov. Romney vetoed budget section 210, which says. "Section 4 of MGL chapter 71A is hereby further amended to add:--"Foreign language classes for children who already know English, 2-way bilingual programs... shall be unaffected." [MGL chapter 71A requires English-only classroom teaching. Section 210 would exempt "2-way classes" in which some students are native English speakers and some are non-native English speakers. A vote to override the Governor's veto would continue to allow that type of bilingual education although foreign-language classes without native English-speaking students woul still be disallowed.]
The relevant part of the MassDems Platform is "We reaffirm our support for classroom programs, including Special and Bilingual Education"

ALIPAC supporters have a diverse range of opinions, yet we are united in the belief that more should be done to reduce illegal immigration. ALIPAC supports those that legally immigrate, but we DO NOT support any amnesty, visa expansion, or "Guest Worker" program designed to reward illegal aliens or legalize their presence in the US. We support a peaceful, non racist, rule of law approach to resolving illegal immigration. America is a land of generous and caring people, but our hospitality and values are being strained and abused by those who are willing to break the law and take our jobs and our tax dollars. America's illegal alien population will begin to shrink instead of grow if we support candidates that will reflect the will of the vast majority of American citizens.
