News from Camp Rutledge on Illegal Immigration

Jim Rutledge’s Position on Illegal Immigration
What are measures would Jim Rutledge propose to address the issue of illegal immigration?

First, the federal government must fulfill its duty to enforce a uniform law of citizenship and immigration in every state. States and local governments creating safe-haven rules and refusing to enforce the laws against illegal immigration should be prosecuted in federal court.

Second, we must reduce and eventually eliminate any and all federal funding to states based upon the census or any other enumeration.  States must not be encouraged to count illegal immigrants to increase their portion of federal funding.  Furthermore, since representation in Congress is based upon the census, illegal immigrants skew proper representation for all American citizens.  Lastly, once States adapt to a lack of federal funds perhaps their own policies and behaviors towards illegal immigrants will change.

Third, to ensure a fair playing field the government should require all employers use the e-Verify system.

Fourth, we must improve border security.  This is a pressing matter of both national security and immigration policy.

Fifth, amnesty is not the answer. Jim will oppose amnesty law because they reward unlawful behavior and encourage more illegal immigration in anticipation of the next amnesty law.

Jim’s Response to OBAMACARE Passing
Excerpts from Jim Rutledge For US Senate Press Release, 22 March 2010

In response to the passage of a national health care system Jim Rutledge said, “Americans are now committed to suffer the financial consequences of another arrogant decision made for the people not by the people.”

Congress failed to listen to the American people in an attempt to further a liberal agenda and create another Washington bureaucracy.  The cost of national health care will ultimately lead to tax increases for all Americans.  Some have already predicted that a national sales tax may be required to pay for government controlled health care. The Rutledge for US Senate Campaign believes the privilege to receive government health care should not come at the expense of the Constitution. The act of taking money from one group or sector of society to give to another is not the action of a democracy. Barbara Mikulski and Barack Obama have worked together to force Marylanders to pay for a government controlled health care system.
