Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has offered their endorsement to US Senator Elizabeth Dole for her strong support for border security and her opposition to legislation in 2006 and 2007 that most Americans considered to be Amnesty for illegal aliens.
"When Americans called out in such numbers that the capital phone system crashed, they were asking Senator Dole to vote NO on the Cloture votes for the amnesty bills, and she stood with the people against amnesty," said William Gheen.
Elizabeth Dole has also received a career grade of 'A' from BetterImmigration.com which gives her high marks for opposing Amnesties, supporting border security, and interior immigration enforcement. Senator Dole has also been highly active promoting the 287(g) program in North Carolina, which allows local police to determine if those they arrest are illegal aliens.
Senator Dole's opponent, State Senator Kay Hagan, has opposed immigration enforcement legislation on the state level. In the 2008 Session, the Democratic leadership which she is a part of, blocked all immigration enforcement bills as they have consistently done over the last several years.
"Kay Hagan and the Democratic leadership in Raleigh have blocked almost all enforcement bills, while supporting benefits for illegal aliens," said William Gheen who is a past NC Senate Assistant Sgt-At-Arms, Legislative Assistant, and lobbyist. "While Hagan and her allies have made NC a welcoming top destination for illegal aliens in America, Senator Dole has been working for more immigration enforcement."
ALIPAC will be launching a statewide effort to remind voters of Senator Dole's popular pro-enforcement positions on the illegal immigration issue, which ranks as an issue of top concern among NC voters. The group will also launch radio ads on several stations promoting Senator Dole's record and reminding voters of Kay Hagan's inaction on this issue. The group will make a donation, encourage others to do the same, and may launch robotic calls to carry the message.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is one of the largest grassroots organizations in America focusing on reversing illegal immigration.
