Sarah Steelman on Immigration

 


Take away all the incentives that are attracting illegals

On immigration policy, Steelman and Akin both said they didn't support a proposal to allow citizenship for people who served in the US military or earned a college diploma. "I believe we've got to take away all the incentives that are attracting the illegals to begin with," Steelman said.

Brunner said he would support allowing citizenship for immigrants who serve in the US military because of their service. But for immigrants who only get a college degree "they need to go to the back of the line."

No amnesty & no benefits for illegals

The foundation of any strong country is respect for the rule of law. Sarah believes that is especially true when it comes to the sacred right of American citizenship. That is why Sarah will oppose any effort to grant amnesty to those who are in this country illegally. We should not reward those who are only here because they have broken the law with American citizenship. Furthermore, we should end the wasteful and unfair practice of providing government benefits to illegal immigrants.
