REPUBLICANS ADOPT RESOLUTION ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AT STATEWIDE CONVENTION

As the top Presidential contenders, Governor Mitt Romney and Senator Sam Brownback, addressed the state Republican Convention this past weekend, a large group within the Michigan Republican Party was working hard to promote the adoption of a much needed resolution on illegal immigration.  

The group worked tirelessly throughout Friday night into Saturday morning, and when they thought the resolution was going to be pushed aside, they took to the microphones on the convention floor. One after another they stated their case and support.  A voice vote was called for and overwhelmingly the crowd of thousands responded.   A second vote was called and another resounding favorable vote was cast.  Finally, a third vote was called for and it won and passed.   The people had spoken!

Representative Jack Hoogendyk was quoted as saying, “The overwhelming response of support from the floor of the convention is testimony to how important this issue is to Republicans. I believe enforcement of the rule of law regarding illegal immigration will be a major campaign issue in 2008."

Representative Dave Agema was quoted as saying, “The whole aspect of illegal immigration is a threat to the American people.  The five areas that are of the utmost concern when it comes to Illegal Immigration are: healthcare, education and welfare, our national security, jobs and criminal justice issues. The number of illegal aliens in the state of Michigan that have obtained illegal drivers licenses based on false documentation is in the thousands.  This has to be stopped and I will be introducing legislation shortly to address this issue.”
