(Please describe your feelings on the following with a number 1-10 or with the response Undecided (1=Strongly Disagree, 2-4=Disagree, 5=Neutral, 6-9 Agree, 10=Strongly Agree)

I support Arizona's new immigration law SB 1070? (1-10) 10 – my only reservation is that it is not strong enough.

As a member of Congress I will use the full power of my office, including impeachment if necessary, to ensure the Executive Branch starts to enforce our existing border and immigration laws? (1-10) 10.

Illegal Immigrants should be deported when detected in the interior of the US? (1-10) 10.

I will oppose any form of Amnesty or path to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently in the US because allowing them to become voters would destroy future immigration enforcement efforts? (1-10) 10.

I support Comprehensive Immigration ENFORCEMENT which will reverse illegal immigration in America? (1-10) 10.

I oppose Obama's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty. (1-10) 10.

I oppose Congressman Luis Gutierrez's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty bill H.R. 4321? (1-10) 10.

I would have opposed John McCain and Ted Kennedy's Amnesty bill S. 1033 in 2005? (1-10) 10.

I oppose any non-emergency taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens, including welfare, food stamps, licenses, and in-state tuition subsidies? (1-10) 10.

I believe that employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens should be heavily fined. (1-10) 10.

Mo Brooks/Candidate comment: Over the past five years, no elected official (local, state or federal) in the Alabama 5th Congressional District has been more outspoken in opposition to illegal aliens and doing something about it than Mo Brooks. Period.


If elected or re-elected to the US Congress, I will oppose any form of Amnesty or path to citizenship for illegal aliens, including Comprehensive Immigration Reform which would turn millions of illegal immigrants into voters thus destroying future borders of America. I will use the full power of my office, including impeachment if necessary, to insure the Executive Branch secures America's border immediately and begins to adequately enforce the existing immigration and border laws of the United States, which were enacted by Congress at the behest of America's citizenry. I understand that the failure of the Executive Branch to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration laws is depriving all Americans of a Republican form of government and depriving our states of protection from invasion as mandated by the US Constitution. I intend to use the power of Congress to immediately remedy this problem that is costing many Americans their jobs, wages, taxpayer resources, property, security, and sometimes their very lives.

So help me God,
Mo Brooks
