Survey Questions

(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) 10plus

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 plus

Illegal Immigrants should be deported when detected in the interior of the
US? (1-10) 10 - immediately without prejudice

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) Without controlling access into this country I don't believe you can even begin the discussion so right now 10, with control over borders I would consider a path to citizenship after ALL entering legally have had a chance.

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 its absurd!

I would have opposed John McCain and Ted Kennedy's Amnesty bill S. 1033 in 2005? (1-10) 10 - Now your getting my blood boiling, this is feel good pandering legislation simply for votes at the cost and with no regard to citizens of this country.

I oppose any non-emergency taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens, including
welfare, food stamps, licenses, and in-state tuition subsidies? (1-10) 10
with the exception of one time airfare home.

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


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,

Vernon M Harrison August 26th 2010
