    Please give a brief description of your district:

    The 18th Congressional District is a socially conservative, Central Valley
    district in the middle of California's San Joaquin Valley. It stretches
    from Stockton south to the very edge of Fresno. During the 2004
    Presidential election, President Bush carried the district by a 50%-49%
    margin, although the district does have a Democratic voter registration
    edge. During our 2003 Gubernatorial recall, 58% of the voters in the 18th
    Congressional District voted to recall then Governor Gray Davis, with a
    combined 62% of the voters voting for either Republican (and now Governor)
    Arnold Schwarzenegger or Republican State Senator Tom McClintock.

    Percentage of Democrat, Republican, and Unaffiliated Voters:

    Republican- 38%

    Democrat- 47%

    Decline to State- 11%

    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)

    From the very start of my campaign I have made illegal immigration my number
    one issue. I have campaigned on stopping the flow of illegal aliens into
    our country, punishing those businesses who knowingly employ illegal aliens,
    and securing or borders. I have attached a file copy of the door hanger we
    are currently talking door to door with to show how we are addressing the
    illegal immigration issue to the voters.

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or
    immigration reform is or would be?

    My opponent's stance on illegal immigration is clear, he is no friend to
    those of us who want to secure our borders and stop the flow of illegal
    aliens into our country. As a State Legislator, he voted in favor of
    granting drivers licenses to illegal aliens, in favor of reduced college
    tuition for illegal aliens and voted to make it easier for illegal aliens to
    collect welfare benefits. As a member of Congress, he voted against the
    illegal immigration enforcement bill authored by Congressman Sensenbrenner
    and is in favor of granting amnesty to those who are currently in our
    country illegally.

    Have you been endorsed by or received contributions from any other
    immigration reform or illegal immigration reduction groups at this time?

    Yes.have been endorsed by Team America PAC (Founded by Congressman Tom

    Would you openly accept an endorsement and or contribution from ALIPAC? Yes

    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on
    these issues. (optional)
    As someone who legally immigrated to our great nation 25 years ago, the
    illegal immigration issue is one that is of a personal nature for me.
    Myself and all others who come to the United States the right way take great
    pains to follow the letter of the law, in order to avail ourselves to all
    that our country has to offer. I find it personally offensive that while it
    took me and others like me nearly two years to go through the process of
    coming to the United States legally and becoming an American citizen, there
    are those who seek to take a short cut and come to our nation illegally. It
    is equally offensive that there are elected officials, my opponent included,
    who seek to reward their behavior, therefore encouraging others to break the
    law and enter our country illegally. As a member of Congress, my main focus
    will be to make sure our country enforces the immigration laws we currently
    have on the books, and to enact real border security measures so that we can
    stop the flow of illegal aliens into our country.


    Candidate Pledge

    I, _John Kanno__, 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
