Americans for Legal Immigration voter guide

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) has published its national list of 2008 endorsements for Congress and Senate.

The group writes: Polls tell us that over 80% of Americans want more done to fight and reverse illegal immigration. Super majorities want the borders secured, employers of illegal aliens fined, local police helping to enforce immigration laws, and no taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens. This is the core platform of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC).

These endorsements are purported to represent campaigns opposed to amnesty and illegal immigration.

The group also publishes a “Kick ’em out” list.

    I find it especially odd that ALIPAC gives their endorsement to John Shadegg. Shadegg has gone on record with his support for the so-called guest worker program and a path to citizenship for illegals, He has done a good job learning from McKyl.

    I read his comments in the New York Times the other day where he made clear his feelings about those of us who are for border security and strict enforcement. This is how he described me and others of his constituents who feel as I do:

    “I believe the Republican Party in Arizona has been hurt very badly by the image created by those who have been most outspoken in their attacks on the illegal immigration issue, who have created the appearance that Republicans are xenophobic, that seem by their comments and are by their comments intolerant.”

    This is his direct quote lifted from the NYT article. It infuriated me then and I am seething all over again. And, he wants my vote again? Earn it, Mr. Shadegg! This is not the way.

    .I have always been a strong supporter of the District 4 Congressman. John Shadegg has a good grasp on the issues and has been reasonable and approachable.

    I, too, was stunned and angered by his intemperate comments. Either he thinks the yokels in his home district don’t read the New York Times, or he thinks we’re too provincial to understand that he’s calling us unflattering names. Well, it turns out many of us read other publications than the local press, and quite a few of us are well enough educated to understand that he said we ARE intolerant for wanting a safe and secure homeland in which to raise our families.

    Stanford, I can tell you with absolute certainty, you and I were not the only people ticked off by those hostile words. I’d like to hear him make such statements in the Arizona Republic. That would ensure a Bob Lord victory!

    What’s to be gained by Rep. Shadegg insulting his own base constituents so close to the election? I’m sorry, but I don’t get this. BTW, I read the article in question a few days ago. At first, I was more shocked than angry. Then the emotions switched.

    I was intrigued by this group’s top ten targeted candidates – 9 of the 10 are Republicans lead by Elizabeth Dole. All I can say – nice way to guarantee a D – veto-proof Senate. Wierd.

    that’s the classic one track mind. Can’t see the Forrest through the trees and will take actions to ensure a Dem Congress and make you all BEG for the McCain-Kennedy bill.

    You’ve been sitting on the train too long, Ryan. And God only knows what you’ve been drinking. Wow! What logic. And I suppose you take that brilliance with you to the polls?

    What exactly is that forest (one ‘r’) we can’t see?

    This must be a Holloween gag.
