    Charles Hutchinson takes the initiative when it comes to bringing people
    together. Mr. Hutchinson founded the Beta Theta Pi Alumni Organization in
    Chicago, brining together young men from diverse backgrounds to meet and
    work together for the betterment of local collegiate Beta chapters, and to
    learn from each others experiences while keeping strong the bonds of
    brotherhood. Mr. Hutchinson also founded the current Cherry Circle
    Striders, the official running club of the Chicago Athletic Association,

    watching Chicago's great sports teams, visiting a local museum, or
    participating in a 5K run. Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson love dining out with
    family and friends in any one of the palate pleasing restaurants in the
    South and West Loop, and are also subscribers to several of Chicago's

    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) YES. In the Q&A section of the Hutchinson for
    Congress webpage www.freewebs.com/hutchinsonforcongress/ ... kforum.htm

    The message is simple. Illegal immigrants are illegal, and we should
    enforce our laws.



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

    My opponent not only supports amnesty for illegal aliens, he also supports
    putting illegal aliens on the welfare rolls, providing them with social
    security, and housing benefits. This can be found on the Issue Positions
    (NPAT) page of vote-smart.org



    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.



    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on
    these issues. (optional)



    -------------------------------

    Candidate Pledge

    I, _Charles Hutchinson__, 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.

    Signed,

    _Charles Hutchinson__________________
