    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, this has been a prime issue in my campaign as my opponent supports amnesty for the 13 million illegal aliens in this country. Please see CaseyforAmnesty.com and RickSantorum.com.

    What do you feel your opponent's stance on illegal immigration or immigration reform is or would be?
    My opponent supports S. 2611 the Reid-Kennedy bill that provides amnesty for 13 million illegal aliens. I opposed that bill and was the highest ranking Republican in the Senate to do so.

    Have you been endorsed by or received contributions from any other immigration reform or illegal immigration reduction groups at this time?
    I have received a grade of A- from Americans for Better Immigration, and have been endorsed by the Minutemen PAC.

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

    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on these issues. (optional)
    I will gladly sign the pledge below.


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

    Candidate Pledge

    I, ____________________, 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.

    ALIPAC Endorses Rick Santorum for U.S. Senate

    November 02, 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 Rick Santorum for U.S. Senate Campaign because Rick Santorum 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, Rick Santorum will oppose any Guest Worker or Temporary Worker Program that would allow illegals to stay. Rick Santorum 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 U.S. 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
