Rick Sikma on Immigration

Republican Senate Challenger


Deport illegals; deny benefits; no anchor babies

Q: Should we allow illegal immigrants to earn citizenship?

A: When any legal US citizen breaks a law, consequences are imposed & then carried out, without prejudice. In turn, anyone that has entered the US borders without previously having earned the legal right to enter should be returned to their country of origin until all legal processes are completed. Benefits to illegal immigrants should be denied. Children of illegal immigrants born in the US must not be automatically given citizenship.

Benefits to illegal aliens must be denied

Benefits to illegal aliens must be denied. National focus must return to insuring the rights of legal US Citizens to health care and jobs. Border Patrol policies and law enforcement must be reviewed and supported.
