Constitution Party National Veterans Coalition Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“We affirm the integrity of the international borders of the United States and the Constitutional authority and duty of the federal government to guard and to protect those borders, including the regulation of the numbers and of the qualifications of immigrants into the country… We oppose the abuse of the H-1B and L-1 visa provisions of the immigration act which are displacing American workers with foreign. We favor a moratorium on immigration to the United States, except in extreme hardship cases or in other individual special circumstances… We oppose the provision of welfare subsidies and other taxpayer-supported benefits to illegal aliens, and reject the practice of bestowing U.S. citizenship on children born to illegal alien parents while in this country. We oppose any extension of amnesty to illegal aliens. We call for the use of U.S. troops to protect the states against invasion.”

Description:

An outreach of the Constitution Party

Mission:

“The Mission of the Constitution Party National Veterans Coalition is to contact, inform, recruit, and organize America’s Military Veterans in support of the fact that the growing Constitution Party is a strong option at national, state and local ballot boxes for the 2008 and future elections vs. the failed two party system. All Veterans have taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Our country faces grave national issues within our borders and abroad that again calls for the same allegiance. The present crisis compels Veterans to call on family, friends, neighbors and social contacts, one and all, to join the Constitution Party to help in timely defense of our country and to insure and sustain forever the personal goals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
