    laws? (1-10) 8

    As a member of Congress I will use the full force of my office to ensure the

    Illegal Immigrants should be deported when detected in the interior of the
    US? (1-10) 10

    Law abiding and legal American citizens should be required to accept
    biometric identification? (1-10) 1

    I believe that local and state police should assist with immigration
    enforcement? (1-10) 4

    Federal taxpayer funding to groups that support illegal immigration like La
    Raza should be stopped. (1-10) 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) 1

    Illegal aliens should be allowed to leave the US and return quickly on a

    illegal aliens? (1-10) 1

    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    Congress should be rescinded?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) 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? (1-10) 10

    Short Answer

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

    Candidate Pledge

    I, ____Rod Grams______, 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,

    ______Rod Grams ____________________
