    Survey Questions
    (Please describe your feelings on the following with a number 1-10 or with
    the response Undecided (1=Strongly Disagree, 2-4=Disagree, 5=Neutral, 6-9 Agree,
    10=Strongly Agree)

    I believe illegal immigration can be reversed if we enforce our existing
    laws? (1-10)
    8, there must be aggressive enforcement (no sanctuary jurisdictions),
    but this is not
    the only element requred to reverse the problem
    As a member of Congress I will use the full force of my office to ensure the
    Executive Branch starts to enforce our existing immigration laws? (1-10)
    Illegal Immigrants should be deported when detected in the interior of the
    US? (1-10)
    10, and to deep into the interior of their countries of origin
    Law abiding and legal American citizens should be required to accept
    biometric identification? (1-10)
    I believe that local and state police should assist with immigration
    enforcement? (1-10)
    10 (again, no sanctuaries), not primary function, but full enforcement
    Federal taxpayer funding to groups that support illegal immigration like La
    Raza should be stopped. (1-10)
    I support "Comprehensive immigration reform" that would allow illegal aliens
    currently in the US to stay without fear of deportation as guest or temporary
    workers? (1-10)
    Illegal aliens should be allowed to leave the US and return quickly on a fast
    track as guest or temporary workers? (1-10)
    2, only on 1-year "worker visas" after full background and medical
    screening, and with
    proper, legal documentation, if they had pre-existing,
    reliable employment
    Illegal Immigrants should be allowed to attend state sponsored universities
    at in state tuition rates? (1-10)
    Employers that intentionally hire illegal aliens should be fined and or
    arrested depending on the severity. (1-10)
    10, absolutely, where knowingly and intentionally hiring, given severe
    English should be the national language of America. (1-10)
    10, we must have assimilation, not accomodation
    I support the SPP Security and Prosperity Partnership and Agreements that
    combine the economies of America, Mexico, and Canada. (1-10)
    2, we must have strong trade relationships and agreements, but not
    'combine' with
    I believe the existing law that says aiding and abetting illegal aliens
    inside the US is a crime should be enforced? (1-10)
    10, with strong penalties
    Banks should be allowed to continue giving taxpayer backed home mortgages to
    illegal aliens? (1-10)
    Executive Branch orders to US Border Patrol to only "Catch and Release"
    illegal aliens at the border and not to speak to the media or Members of Congress
    should be rescinded? (1-10)
    Congress should investigate why the Executive Branch of the United States is
    not enforcing our existing immigration laws, why all fines against employers
    had ceased by 2004, and why some actions of the Executive branch appear to be
    more in the interest of drug and human smugglers than the American public?
    6, Let's correct the situation, not waste time and energy with debate
    on the blame

    Short Answer

    Has your campaign addressed the topic of illegal immigration in speeches,
    commercials, ads, or campaign materials? What are those messages? (Please provide
    sources or examples)
    In speeches and materials: My recommendations:
    A very secure border - fence, w/ virtual support and
    increased, adequate border patrol; no Guest workers or amnesty - 1-year "worker visas"
    only for worker alone, "residence visas" if desired to reside and work
    towards citizenship (employment required w/in a couple months & no subsistence
    benefits); severe penalties for employers knowingly hiring undocumented, but full
    support of government for employers to easily identify and confirm proper
    documentation; support of law enforcement for quick checks of legal documentation;
    documents (birth certificates, green cards, SSN cards) used must be produced
    counterfeit-proof; no benefits (medical, education, etc.) accessible to illegal
    immigrants and no immigrant participation in Social Security; employers to
    petition INS for quick processing of loyal undocumented workers for return;
    English official language and assimilation required; illegal criminals
    incarcerated in their countries or at their country's expense (or charged against
    aid) and repeat illegal intrants deported to far interiors; elinimate
    automatic citizenship of children born of illegals per 14th Amend.; with
    documentation, legal employment would be documented, with fair pay, paid taxes and
    provided benefits and Workman's Comp, and fair, level playing field assured for all

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or immigration
    reform is or would be?
    2 or more National Immigration Control coalitions have rated him,
    Democrat Congressman Mike Thompson, absolutely failing on his voting record,
    voting against immigration control and for benefits being provided to illegal
    aliens as well as a pass on staying here

    Have you been endorsed by or received contributions from any other
    immigration reform or illegal immigration reduction groups at this time?
    not specifically, but wine industry and farm bureau members and
    representatives have broadly liked and supported my positions and candidacy

    Would you openly accept an endorsement and or contribution from ALIPAC?
    Yes, assuredly and proudly. The endorsement would be so greatly
    appreciated, and any contribution would help my campaign, in a very close,
    competitive race, assure election and would be very well appreciated.

    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on these
    issues. (optional)
    The above statement on my position and recommendations on illegal
    immigration are quite thorough, but I have an extensive, more complete discussion
    on same and many other issues on my web site,
    I've been additionally quite gratified to discover that my thoughts on this
    critical issue were so closely in line with the printed thoughts of Newt Gingrich
    in his most recent book. My desire to address this will be one of my first
    priorities once in office.


    Candidate Pledge

    I, _John W. Jones _____________, hereby pledge to stand with the American
    public to have the US Border secured and existing immigration laws enforced with
    the intention of reducing the number of illegal aliens entering and remaining
    in the US. I understand that the vast majority of Americans want the border
    secured, taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens ended, local police helping to
    enforce immigration laws, and employers that hire, aid, and abet illegal aliens
    to be charged.

    Furthermore, I will not support any trade agreement or Executive Branch
    treaty that compromises our ability to enforce our existing immigration laws and
    threatens US sovereignty.

    I will actively oppose any attempt to remove or replace the current laws that
    say illegal aliens are to be deported with a guest worker or temporary worker
    program that allows illegal aliens to stay or quickly return to the US.

    Americans for LEGAL Immigration PAC Endorses John W. Jones for Congress

    October 25, 2006

    William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)
    (866) 329-3999 or

    Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is pleased to offer our endorsement to the John W. Jones for Congress campaign because John W. Jones is willing to enforce our existing laws and support public calls for more enforcement.

    "There is actually very little division on the illegal immigration issue," says William Gheen of ALIPAC. "The problem is that our existing immigration laws are not being enforced by the Executive Branch. We know that over 4 out of 5 Americans want employers fined, the borders secured, and illegal aliens deported when detected. We feel John W. Jones will stand up for the American majority on this issue."

    The illegal immigration issue is now a part of campaigns in almost every state in America. Voters in many states list the issue as one of their top concerns. While many candidates vow they are against Amnesty and for Border Security, citizens are worried lawmakers will return to DC to grant amnesty disguised as a new Guest Worker or Temporary Worker Program.

    "We only endorse candidates like John W. Jones that want the illegal aliens to leave and not stay in America." says William Gheen. "We only support candidates that are opposed to any change or lifting of our existing laws to allow illegal aliens to stay. Illegal aliens will start to leave America in large quantities if we start enforcing our existing laws."

    The public has recently become aware that US Border Patrol agents have been ordered to only "Catch and Release" and not to pursue illegal aliens. All fines against employers for hiring illegal aliens had ceased by 2004, and federal laws making it a felony to aid and abet illegal aliens go un-enforced.

    The John W. Jones campaign has made it clear they will oppose any Guest Worker amnesty and will go to Washington DC with the message to the Executive Branch "Secure our border and enforce our existing immigration laws now!"

    Americans for Legal Immigration is a one of the largest national organizations fighting illegal immigration. ALIPAC's goal is to help voters cut through the campaign rhetoric to find out which candidates are true to the American public on this issue. ALIPAC is a multi-ethnic organization that enjoys the support of many LEGAL immigrants. Supporters are organized in all 50 states. For more information, please visit

    Alipacers Come In All Colors
    Boy am I glad to see this one. I'm in this district. Thompson is an absolute loser. I will contact his office to see how I can work for him. I just tried the link to his campaign and it isn't working.
