  • Ralph Nader Running for President -- Again

    I may be very wrong, but I doubt that Ralph Nader draws any more than one-tenth of one percent of the vote.

    I trust nothing Huckabee has to say on the issue of illegal immigration.

    As governor, he supported in-state tuition and college scholarships for illegal aliens.

    As governor, he supported driver licenses for illegal aliens.

    Ron Paul would be better on the immigration issue than any of the Democratic candidates for president. He would also be better than McCain on that issue.

    However, he has never indicated that he would decrease legal immigration.

    He voted three times for Section 245(i) amnesty for hudnreds of thosuands of illegal aliens.

    He voted seven times against allowing the U.S. military to aid the U.S. Border Patrol in border control functions.

    He also said in an interview with John Stossel “I didn’t like the fence. I don’t think the fence can solve a problem. I find it rather offensive.”

    Clinton, Edwards and Obama all support allowing millions of illegal aliens to receive legal status and a path to citizenship while never having to leave the United States. McCain and Giuliani also support awarding legal status and a path to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens while those illegal aliens remain in the U.S.

    Unfortunately, Clinton, Obama, Edwards, McCain, Giuliani, Huckabee, Paul and Romney all support increasing the number of foreign workers in the U.S. None of the remaining presidential candidates are good on the issue of foreign workers.

    Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter were the only candidates for president that most likely would have opposed increases in foreign workers if they had been elected president.

    Illegal immigration will be the most important issue to me when I vote in Tennessee this week.

    I will be voting for Mitt Romney.

    John McCain and Rudy Giuliani are both rated abysmal on the issue of “No amnesty” by NumbersUSA. Mitt Romney is rated excellent by NumbersUSA on that issue by NumbersUSA.

    Roy Beck of NumbersUSA has assessed the positions of all the presidential candidates on several immigration-related issues. Below are a portion of Roy Beck’s assessment of Gov. Romney’s policy positions on several immigration-related issues.

    No amnesty - EXCELLENT

    Stop future illegal immigration - EXCELLENT

    Mandatory workplace verification - GOOD

    Punish employers who hire illegal aliens - GOOD

    Local enforcement of federal immigration laws - EXCELLENT

    More security at borders - EXCELLENT

    End sanctuary cities - EXCELLENT

    Prohibit states from issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens - EXCELLENT

    Prohibit in-state tuition to illegal aliens - EXCELLENT

    Here is what Roy Beck of NumbersUSA had to say to Michigan voters: concerned about immigration. A copy of this letter can be seen at


    If stopping illegal immigration and preventing an amnesty are top priorities for you, the latest ratings in the right-hand column make it quite clear two candidates who don’t deserve your vote in the Michigan Republican Presidential Primary on Tuesday.

    As for who deserves your vote based on immigration ... all the other GOP candidates are much better in the details of their promises to stop any amnesty and to make the 12-20 million illegal aliens already here go back home. Look over their ratings for yourself.

    (Since there are questions about whether Michigan’s Democratic Primary will have any meaning, you Democrats — and certainly you Independents — may want to vote in the Republican contest to ensure that as many anti-amnesty votes are cast for anti-amnesty candidates as possible.)

    You can view our ratings in 16 immigration categories for all Democratic and Republican candidates on the same page at:
    Presidential Immigration Ratings

    Please print out this Alert — and also the GRID — and share them with as many voters as possible. Post the copies on bulletin boards and hand out to others.


    I’m not sure I’ve seen a more clarifying moment on amnesty in the last year than the back-to-back comments by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) and Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) in Thursday night’s debate in South Carolina.

    Watch this illuminating exchange on:
    Romney & McCain Video

    Then watch Thompson’s followup on:
    Thompson Video

    No candidate has done more advertising against amnesty or more raising of the issue in debates than Romney, who has constantly tried to make sure that nobody forgets McCain’s role as the architect of two years of giant amnesty bills in Congress.

    But in the South Carolina debate, it was the moderator who first put McCain on the spot: “Senator McCain, the president’s push for immigration reform failed mainly because of disagreements over your plan for dealing with the 12 million people now here illegally. You say you’ve learned your lesson, you’d secure the borders first. OK. Then how would you deal with the illegals?”

    McCain has avoided answering that question for months, and almost succeeded again Thursday night. But when you closely parse what he said, you can see the McCain Amnesty Position:

    1. McCain believes there was nothing wrong with the Comprehensive Amnesty legislation that American citizens defeated in the Senate last spring.

    2. McCain suggests that the reason citizens opposed his Comprehensive Amnesty bill was not because they oppose legalizing illegal aliens but because they don’t trust the government to secure our borders.

    3. McCain promises to secure our borders and to aggressively deport about 2 million illegal aliens who have gotten into additional trouble with the law.

    4. McCain will allow all the rest of the 12-20 million illegal aliens to remain permanently in the United States — at least, he refuses to say that any of them have to go home.

    Romney’s and Thompson’s description of what they would do with the illegal aliens provided a great contrast that surely helped most watchers of the debate see that McCain remains the Amnesty King that he has been for years.

    After his leadership for amnesties knocked him out of his front-runner status last spring, it seems like many Americans forgot about his role. How else to explain that Sen. McCain (R-Ariz.) has suddenly become the front-runner in the national polls for the Republican nomination?

    Recent private polling that I’ve seen suggests that large numbers of voters who strongly want illegal aliens to go home are not aware that Sen. McCain intends to allow most of the illegal aliens to remain permanently in this country.

    In part, that may be because McCain in nationally televised debates and in campaign stops has said that he has never — and will never — support “amnesty.” It is difficult for even the most cynical voters to believe that a candidate would tell a direct lie in such public settings.

    But McCain justifies his claims by re-defining what “amnesty” means. According to McCain, it isn’t amnesty to allow illegal aliens to live here permanently and keep American jobs, if you make them pay a fine and learn English.

    As Romney pointed out on last Sunday’s talk shows, that is a mighty big reward for law-breaking, whatever you call it. And as Thompson said Sunday night, rewarding illegal aliens with the right to stay will just entice millions more to come.

    We at NumbersUSA have kept track of all of Sen. McCain’s efforts to flood American occupations and communities with foreign workers and their dependents.

    To read a summary of McCain’s immigration actions and links to the details, go here:
    McCain’s Preference for Illegal Aliens Over American Workers

    I hope all the information that our NumbersUSA team has gathered for you on the GRID and Candidates pages will be helpful to you as you decide how to vote.

    We will continue to modify the GRID as candidates change.

    Reagan signed the 1986 amnesty legislation in part because those supporting that amnesty in Congress, including Ted Kennedy, promised there would be no more amnesties. Ted Kennedy lied. Twenty years later he was working with John McCain, Lindsay Graham, Mel Martinez and other Republican senators to give amnesty to twenty to thirty million illegal aliens.

    Nineteen Middle Eastern terrorists murdered nearly three thousand American on 9/11/2001. It’s that simple.

    It is disgusting that the 9/11 truthers, more appropriately called the 9/11 liars, would even suggest that President Bush was part of a plan to murder Americans that day. If I was a surving family member of someone killed on that day, I would be very angry with the 9/11 truthers.
