    Federal taxpayer funding to groups that support illegal immigration like
    La Raza should be stopped. (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) 8

    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)
    We address this issue all the time, see attached document on National

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

    He is more in favor of a guest worker program. I am for allowing those
    that we need for a healthy economy only, and I am against any amnesty
    approach period!

    Have you been endorsed by or received contributions from any other
    immigration reform or illegal immigration reduction groups at this time?
    No, I only take contributions from individuals. No PACs etc.

    Would you openly accept an endorsement and or contribution from ALIPAC?
    I would accept an endorsement, but I have turned down other PAC money to
    avoid to stay pure on that. Perhaps I should, as my opponent takes PAC

    Please use the remainder of this space to share any further opinions on
    these issues. (optional)
    What we are doing is crazy, and I am mad at both parties. We are very
    dependent on illegals in S.C., so we don't want to deport all at one
    shot, even if that were possible, as it would cause dislocation in our
    labor force. My first commitment is to our citizens that I insist must
    work, if they are able, and at a wage that they can live on. Illegals
    make this difficult, if not impossible. I advocate requiring to test
    employees using the "Basic Pilot for Employment Eligibility" which
    already exists and would put a huge dent in the problem.


    Candidate Pledge

    I, ___William I. Griffith____, 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.
