    Candidate Background Information

    As the daughter of a veteran and bronze star recipient, I was raised to
    believe that each person has a responsibility to serve. I am running for
    Congress because the future of our families is too important to be left to
    politicians more interested in their political futures than in serving our
    needs. I am not a politician but instead a Mom on a Mission. My mission is
    to end playing partisan politics with the issues and return public service
    to the House of Representatives.

    Experience has taught me the importance of serving others by enacting
    solutions that address challenges to produce results. This is evident in my
    career choices of serving at-risk children through Big Brothers/ Big Sisters
    of Monmouth County or as a Client Services Representative with American
    Express.

    Shortly after marriage, my dedication to service was again tested with the
    birth of our two children. Embarking on a new career as an at-home wife and
    mother of two young boys, taught me the important skills necessary to serve
    in the House of Representatives such as, balancing a budget, acting as an
    unbiased mediator in resolving conflicts, resisting lobbying efforts, and
    negotiating peace agreements among quarreling factions.

    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) - 1

    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, our campaign has focused on illegal
    immigration and given many speeches on the subject. Attached to this email
    are press releases, speeches and campaign literature pertaining to the
    subject.

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or
    immigration reform is or would be? - My opponent, Frank Pallone, has rallied
    with illegal immigrants in Liberty State Park. He sends out his official
    updates as a Congressman both Spanish and English and has said that he
    supports the Senate version of "comprehensive immigration reform". He has
    received a grade of D- from Better Immigration.

    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)



    Of the estimated 11 -12 million illegal immigrants in the Country, an
    estimated 350,000 - 425,000 reside in New Jersey. Illegal immigration has
    an impact on all Americans by way of threats to Homeland security, increased
    costs and taxes due to the additional strain illegal immigrants place on the
    health care and school systems, and the economy impact by taking jobs at
    lower than market rate, stealing jobs from willing, able, law abiding
    individuals.

    To address this situation we must secure our Nation's borders. We must also
    provide law enforcement with greater ability to fight illegal immigration,
    and we must punish those who knowingly employ illegal immigrants.
    Furthermore, as a Nation we must say NO to amnesty.

    With a secure border it will be easier to reform our immigration laws and
    policies to provide an opportunity, with sufficient safeguards, for
    foreigners to enter the United States, that those here legally do not
    overstay their visas, and that there is a uniform process for those seeking
    citizenship so long as those seeking citizenship assimilate into our
    society.


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

    Candidate Pledge

    I, _Leigh-Ann Bellew__, 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,

    ALIPAC Endorses Leigh-Ann Bellew for Congress

    October 23, 2006
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CONTACT:
    William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)
    (866) 329-3999 or WilliamG@alipac.us

    Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is pleased to offer our endorsement to the Leigh-Ann Bellew for Congress campaign because Leigh-Ann Bellew wants our borders secured, our existing immigration laws enforced, and illegal aliens to leave the United States of America.

    "Over 80% of the voters consistently indicate they want our border secured and our existing immigration laws enforced," says William Gheen of ALIPAC. "While some lawmakers in Washington want to change our existing laws and allow illegal aliens to stay in our nation, Leigh-Ann Bellew will oppose any Guest Worker or Temporary Worker Program that would allow illegals to stay. Leigh-Ann Bellew wants illegal aliens to go back to their homes in the nations they are citizens of."

    Illegal immigration has become a top issue in the 2006 campaigns. There are currently 12-22 million illegal aliens in America. Most Americans are aware that this problem has been created by the non enforcement and minimal enforcement of our existing immigration laws. According to surveys of US Border Patrol agents, illegal crossings have increased as some US lawmakers have called for amnesty disguised as a Guest Worker or Temporary Worker Program.

    "It is common sense that for any law to be a deterrent, the penalties must be greater than the rewards." says William Gheen. "Illegal aliens can never reimburse us for what they have taken and therefore must return home. Can you imagine what America would be like if bank robbers only had to return a portion of the money when caught for robbing banks?"

    Americans are being told by some politicians such as John McCain and Edward Kennedy that they must accept a Guest Worker Program because "We cannot deport 12 million people."

    Americans do not have to deport 12 million people. Enforcement of our existing laws by fining employers, securing the border, empowering local police, and removing taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens will cause millions of illegals to leave on their own. Currently, illegal aliens are leaving the state of Georgia and parts of Pennsylvania due to local efforts to enforce the law in those areas. (See 'How To Reverse Illegal Immigration' at www.alipac.us)

    Americans for Legal Immigration is a one of the largest national organizations fighting illegal immigration. 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 www.alipac.us
