Chuck Baldwin on Immigration

Constitution Party nominee for President; Reform Party nominee in several states


GOP & Dems both want open borders

Chuck Baldwin points to the immigration issue as evidence that the positions of the Republican and Democratic parties are essentially identical.

"The Democrats basically want the illegals to continue to come across the border at will for the sake of getting votes," said Baldwin. "The Republicans, on the other hand, want the borders to remain open for the purpose of being able to obtain cheap labor. Regardless of the reason, neither major party has any desire to secure our borders."

Seal borders; no amnesty; no social services for illegals

The time for rhetoric is over. We will seal our borders and ports. I support construction of a fence to secure our borders, but a Baldwin Administration will not wait for the construction of a fence in order to seal and secure our borders. We will utilize whatever force is necessary, including military personnel, to effectively secure our borders immediately.

By sealing the borders and by cutting off the money supply to illegal aliens, the problem of illegal immigration would dry up. As it is, we have no idea how many potential terrorists have snuck (and are sneaking) through our borders.

There will be no "path to citizenship" given to any illegal alien. That means no amnesty. Not in any shape, manner, or form. I would not allow tax dollars to be used to pay for illegal aliens' education, social services, or medical care. As President, I would end birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. There would be no "anchor babies" during my administration.

No path to citizenship for illegal aliens

Not only does the Bush administration not secure our borders and ports, it wants to provide a "path to citizenship" for illegal aliens. It allows tax dollars to be used to pay for illegal aliens' education, social services, and medical care. It offers birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. And it prosecutes and imprisons Border Patrol agents for shooting (but not seriously enough to prevent his escape back into Mexico) a known illegal alien and drug trafficker.

No wonder the flood of illegal aliens has skyrocketed since George W. Bush became President. And is there anyone who does not understand that a John McCain Presidency will be more of the McSame? A McCain White House promises continued open borders and ports. Plus, McCain will also pus forward with his plans to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. When it comes to illegal immigration, amnesty, etc., there will be no relief from an Obama White House. Both Barack Obama and John McCain are pro-open borders, pro-amnesty twins.

Cut off money supply & illegal immigration dries up

By sealing the borders and by cutting off the money supply to illegal aliens, the problem of illegal immigration would dry up. I would enforce our visa rules. This means anyone who overstays their visa or otherwise violates US law is immediately deported. There would be no "path to citizenship" given to any illegal alien. That means no amnesty. Not in any shape, manner, or form. I would not allow tax dollars to be used to pay for illegal aliens' education, social services, or medical care.

End birthright citizenship; no more anchor babies

As President, I would end birthright citizenship for illegal aliens. There would be no "anchor babies" during my administration.

Repeal the "anchor baby" loophole

The Constitution Party platform (which is totally supported by Baldwin) opposes conscription and any type of constitutional convention. It calls for repeal of the Federal Reserve Act and the "anchor baby" loophole used to provide legal status within our nation for border crossers. It seeks abolition of the Departments of Education and Energy; withdrawal from the United Nations, NATO, NAFTA, and the WTO; termination of all foreign aid and all tax-supported benefits for illegal immigrants.
