Rodney Glassman on Immigration

 


Path to citizenship, including fine & back-of-the-line

McCain talked about his 10-point plan to secure the border, saying only after that happens can the country address a temporary legal-worker program.

Glassman said that while he supports securing the border, it won't work unless there is a way for peopl to cross legally for work. And he backed a path to citizenship for those already here, saying they'd have to submit to background checks, learn English, pay a fine and go to the back of the line.

Not conservative on immigration

Clarence Preston, 88, a retired AT&T worker from Prescott, quizzed Mr. Glassman on his views on abortion and immigration. Mr. Preston said later that he wished the candidate had been more conservative, but he was willing to at least give him a listen. "He sounded sincere," Mr. Preston said. "I like that he's here among the common people."

Hire more border patrol; more border technology

We need a sensible, reasonable approach to immigration. SB1070 is not the answer; it is a rash attempt to score political points. As a former Vice Mayor for Tucson, I understand the importance of safety in our communities. SB1070 is an unfunded mandate & additional burden on local law enforcement.

We must hire and train the appropriate number of border patrol agents and utilize technology to secure and monitor the border. Additionally, we must have a system in place for those who would like to come to our country legally, work, pay taxes, and return home--in order for our economy to function properly.

Those who are in our country illegally must be held accountable for breaking the law, but it would cost billions of taxpayer dollars to arrest or deport them all. We need a realistic solution so that those who work hard, pay back taxes, and contribute to society pay a fine and get in the back of the line to become US citizens. Those who otherwise do not obey our laws should be deported immediately
