Christy Mihos on Immigration


Illegal immigration is illegal--they cost Massachusetts $1B

Q: Would you allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at public colleges?

MIHOS: Illegal immigration is illegal. And they're not immigrants, they're illegal immigrants, they're here illegally and INS tells us that by the year 2010 that's going to cost this Commonwealth $1 billion in cost to deal with this issue. Kerry Healey in November 2005 said they should all go back basically, but in May 2006 she's with George Bush that these people pay taxes, they should stay here.

Dems want immigrants votes; GOP wants their cheap labor

Q: Should illegals be issued drivers licenses?

MIHOS: Lets be clear about illegal immigration -- the Democrats want their votes, the Republicans want cheap labor. That's what this is all about and that's why we have gridlock and that's why the federal government won't do anything and that's why the state government won't do anything. How many corporations under the Romney/Healey administration have been fined, or investigated [for hiring illegal immigrants]? Zero.

No licenses for illegals; felony for driving without license

Q: Should illegals be issued drivers licenses?

MIHOS: Let me put it this way, when I'm elected governor what I will work with the legislature, and one of the first bills I will pass is I believe anybody riding around without a license, without a registration, without insurance, I want to change that from a misdemeanor to a felony. We've got to secure our borders and yes, I will ask the state police to enforce that, I will ask them to work with INS. This is a huge issue for the Commonwealth.
