Illegal immigration is costing Georgia taxpayers 1.6 billion while at the same time we're cutting hundreds of millions of dollars in educational funding resulting in teacher lay-offs. If elected I will support an anti-illegal immigration bill similar to the one passed in Arizona. I have actually read Arizona's bill (unlike some of the politicians who are criticizing it) and it goes no further than enforcing current federal immigration laws already on the books. We need someone who is willing to fight for Georgia and tackle the difficult issues.
As an American I support all nationalities residing here legally and even serve on the board of a Spanish ministry, however, I believe we must respect and enforce state and Federal immigration laws. People of all nationalities are welcome as long as they come legally, abide by our laws and pay their fare share of taxes. In addition to the financial burden and security risk it also opens the door for illegal immigrants to be taken advantage of by those seeking their own benefit.
