    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, it is one of the top issues. I support strong border enforcement and deportation of illegal immigrants in the US. I support enforcing laws against employers who knowingly or should know they are hiring illegal immigrants. I oppose “Path to citizenship” amnesty.

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

    He supports illegal immigration, path to citizenship amnesty and the creation of hiring halls for illegal immigrants to find work in the Congressional District. He tries to confuse the issue with constituents by saying he supports “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”

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

    Have we?

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


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

    There is a clear choice on this issue. I support real immigration reform which is enforcement based. My opponent opposes real reform and see illegal immigrants as part of his voter base.


    Candidate Pledge

    I, _Italo Zanzi_____, 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.
