    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

    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)

    Our borders must be secured. Our current immigration laws must be enforced. Those
    are the only goals until they are achieved. Once we are sucessful in those areas it
    will be time to have a reasoned discussion on temporary worker visa's, immigration
    reform, etc.

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or immigration reform
    is or would be? Emanuel Cleaver has voted against securing our borders and enforcing
    our current immigration laws.



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

    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, Jacob Turk, 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,

    Jacob Turk
