Ron Prince Biography

Title:
Co-author of Proposition 187 and the Save Our State (SOS) Initiative in California
Position:
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“The People of California find and declare as follows: That they have suffered and are suffering economic hardship caused by the presence of illegal aliens in this state. That they have suffered and are suffering personal injury and damage caused by the criminal conduct of illegal aliens in this state. That they have a right to the protection of their government from any person or persons entering this country unlawfully. Therefore, the People of California declare their intention to provide for cooperation between their agencies of state and local government with the federal government, and to establish a system of required notification by and between such agencies to prevent illegal aliens in the United States from receiving benefits or public services in the State of California.”

Proposition 187, 1994

“If amnesty goes through, Bush will lose the White House… He’s not going to pick up any votes on the other side, and Republicans won’t vote. And that’s the message Republican elitists need to understand: They say, ‘Where will Republican voters go?’ and I say, ‘I don’t have to go anywhere. I can stay home.'”
