Washington Times Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“Thanks to the energetic work of Republicans and some sober-minded Democrats, the House may indeed get to vote on immigration reform legislation worthy of the name sometime soon. The bill is the SAVE Act (H.R. 4088)… [It] offers a reasonable ‘middle ground’ solution — something between the sort of mass-amnesty solution embodied by last year’s failed Senate immigration bill and the ‘mass deportation’ strawman conjured up by amnesty advocates. In the coming weeks, many rank-and-file Democrats will have to make a very difficult choice: carry water for Nancy Pelosi or respond to the legitimate concerns of their constituents.”
