[SIZE=5]Dear Candidate,[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]It would be of great service to this country if all of the remaining candidates would answer the following questions regarding their respective positions on immigration reform:[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]1. Do you support English as the official language of the United States and the only language to be used in all official publications, proceedings and ballots at all levels of government?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]2. What actions are you prepared to take to achieve that goal?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]3. Will you immediately reverse Clinton’s Executive Order 13166?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]4. Will you deny citizenship to any immigrant or other person who cannot demonstrate true fluency in written and spoken English rather than the knowledge of just a few words or phrases? [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]5. Politicians have been promising to secure the borders for many years. What concrete steps would you be prepared to take by executive order or such other means as may be necessary to achieve that goal?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]6. Our northern border is 3,987 miles long and the southern border is 1933 miles. To secure the borders with a minimum of one border patrol agent per mile would require 5920 agents per shift or at least 17,760 agents in addition to the staffing at the official border crossing points. Are you prepared to support that level of staffing or would you choose the approach in 7 below?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]7. We have spent a great deal of time and money to secure our borders with no appreciable and attributable decline in the number of illegals in the U.S.? Would you support a totally new approach that would secure the borders by assuring that all illegals are quickly apprehended and deported at their own expense or that of their employers?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]8. If we deny illegals the opportunity to get a job, they will stop coming and those who are here already will return home with a little prodding. Will you, by executive order, institute mandatory E-verification across the board for all employers public and private and all employees, both current and potential new hires?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]9. Do you support a legislative or executive order clarification of the 14th Amendment to exclude the offspring of illegal aliens, foreign students, and tourists from birthright citizenship?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]10. Would you support the appointment of federally-sanctioned, state appointed immigration justices of the peace (IJOPs) to relieve the immigration judges of all but the most difficult immigration decisions?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]11. Would you support a rigid set of criteria to be used by these IJOPs to enable a decision within 24 hours of apprehension with only one week for appeal?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]12. Would you support a compensation plan for privately-operated detention facilities that is based mostly on throughput rather than detainee-days?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]13. Would you support an executive order that defines an illegal alien as anyone who cannot produce current authentic evidence of his or her bona fides within one week? [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]14. Would you issue an executive order defining the inability to produce legal evidence of immigration status as prima facie evidence of illegal entry and presence in the U.S. subjecting the individual to immediate deportation without recourse?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]15. Some candidates indicated that they favor a simplification of immigration rules to facilitate legal immigration, hoping that that would reduce the number of illegals. Would you be willing to take a different direction based on a national objective of the stabilization of our population within 20 based on immigration and tax policies?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]16. What do you consider to be the optimum population for the U.S.?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]17. At what level of population will our quality of life and standard of living be adversely affected—0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, or 1.3 billion?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]18. What steps are you prepared to take to forestall that adverse outcome?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]19. The “limit” of finite natural resources per capita as population increases without bounds is zero. (The more there are of us, the less there is for each of us of these finite natural resources.) How much farther down that road do you propose to go?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]20. Do you believe population-driven economic growth is sustainable over the long run?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]21. Are you willing to speak up about the millions of jobs that could be made available to unemployed Americans if the illegals were expeditiously removed from our country? Why isn’t this a part of your jobs plan?[/SIZE]

Great post. Problem is our politicians would rather talk about abortion and Gay rights etc etc and not the issues that MOST americans want them to. They want to avoid giving any straight answers about illegals and plan to continue not dealing with it the entire time they try to convince us they deserve to be in office.

You're right. I have been watching the Republican debates and they never seem to give a straight answer about illegal immigration. There always seems to be some questions/clarifications of their answers hanging in the air or they flip flop from one debate to the other. Santorum did that and so did Romney. Your first clue is when they start out saying "we are a nation of immigrants". That has nothing to do with illegal immigration. Obama has straight out said he wants amnesy for illegals and has already taken steps to give many a de facto amnesty so we know for sure where he stands on this issue.

Politics is a business. Its the business of brokering power. Anyone in power has 1 great fear. Losing that power. I love when party hardliners gush about their party of choice as if that party is some how any different than the other. The only citizens that the party represents are the special interest groups.
Some accuse our president of being bias in favor of blacks or minorities. I suggest that he is biased towards special interest groups and wealthy contributers. As the life style of the average minority improved been elevated due to Obama's policies? I doubt it at least no more or less than anyone elses.
They wont answer these questions because their masters would prefer they remain unanswered.
