    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 every speech I make, I address illegal immigration as the number 1 issue our
    nation faces. My campaign website and literature also state this. Illegal
    immigration is the main reason I am running for Congress. My opponent hasn't done
    enough about it.

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or immigration reform
    is or would be? He has voted against efforts to halt illegal immigration and has not
    been supportive of issues related to protecting our borders.

    Have you been endorsed by or received contributions from any other immigration
    reform or illegal immigration reduction groups at this time? No.

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

    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on these
    issues. (optional)
    I would appreciate your organization's members hearing about me and my views, please
    let them know they can visit my website and/or contact me to discuss the illegal
    immigration problem and my hopes to make a change to stop the invasion.


    Candidate Pledge

    I, William Bodell, 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

    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 William Bodell 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 William Bodell for Congress campaign because William Bodell 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 William Bodell 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 William Bodell 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 William Bodell 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
