Ian Linker on Immigration
"New Jersey has 550,000 illegal aliens. Put simply, illegal aliens take jobs away from New Jerseyans who are here legally creating higher unemployment. Granting illegals amnesty as Bob Menendez proposes will cost hardworking Americans dearly."
Linker added, "We need real leadership and courage on immigration reform. Real reform starts with enforcing the laws we currently have on the books. We then need to secure our borders. We need to hold employers to account for employing illegal immigrants and should encourage all the states to adopt E-verify. We need to make it easier to obtain citizenship for folks who come here legally so people have a greater incentive to obey the law. And we need to remove the incentives we have at all levels of government for people to come here illegally."
