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) 10

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) 8

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, but
largely because it will encourage new rounds of illegal immigration.

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


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, 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,

John J. Loughlin II
