When it comes to fighting illegal immigration, a lot of Republicans are all talk and no action.
Well, while others have “talked,” I have actually been in the fight.
When Governor Gray Davis signed the bill giving driver’s licenses to illegals, I led the charge with the Save Our License campaign that ultimately forced the legislature to repeal the law.
As a member of the West Covina School Board, I fought for the implementation of e-verify in our school district’s hiring practices.
I publicly debated and advocated for Proposition 187 – the initiative that would have banned illegal aliens from receiving state benefits.
The cost to taxpayers of illegal immigration in California is astounding. A recent study concluded that taxpayers are on the hook for more than $25 billion per year. That’s a little more than $2,700 per household. Think about that! You and your household pay $2,700 more each and every year directly because of illegal immigration.
- Justice and law enforcement costs alone, which include policing, court and incarceration, are more than $4.4 billion.
- Medical services cost taxpayers around $4 billion per year. That includes approximately $388 million associated with the 68,000 births to illegal immigrant mothers.
- Public assistance for illegal aliens has a $792 million price tag each year.
It’s time to get serious.
That’s why, on day one as your Assemblyman, I’ll introduce legislation to make it a crime to impersonate an illegal alien for the purpose of obtaining state benefits.
You may think this isn’t an issue, but I’m dead serious.
This will force the state to outline all the possible ways Illegals benefit over citizens.
Health care? Education? College Tuition?
Let’s weed it out. And the easiest way to do that is to force the government to fully disclose all benefits currently going to illegals in California.
Join me in this movement.
We cannot afford to turn a blind eye.
As your Assemblymen, I’ll fight to end the handout of taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens. For more than two decades, I’ve carried the conservative banner on this issue, and I will continue to lead the fight.
Will you join me?
