Federal government has refused to enforce immigration laws

I BELIEVE in a strong immigration policy without amnesty for those currently here illegally. The current lack of enforcement of existing immigration laws is a mockery of our judicial system and has nearly made using the term 'illegal immigrant' more illegal than the immigrants themselves. The federal government's refusal to enforce these laws has turned every illegal immigrant in this country into a pawn in the hands of vote seeking politicians in every level of government.

Effective immigration maintains Borders, Language & Culture

We believe that the term Borders, Language and Culture is a responsible way to view the proper procedures of effective immigration. English is the language of America and we must recognize this legally rather than adjust our system to accommodate every language and culture on the planet. Though America has long been called the 'Melting Pot of the World' the historic strength of immigrants has been through a proven process of education, assimilation and eventually Americanization.

Supports a strong immigration policy

His stance on the issues are similar to those of the 9/12 followers, he is for sovereignty, limited government, term limits for Congress, closing our dependence for foreign oil, the Fair Tax, a strong immigration policy, he is Pro-life, and preserving our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
