Poll: DeFazio 42, Smith 38
If the November 4th, 2008 general election for U.S. Senate were held today and the candidates were: Peter DeFazio, Democrat or Gordon Smith, Republican, for whom would you vote or are you undecided?
DeFazio [D] 42
Smith [R] 38
The big difference between these two candidates? Their stance on illegal (and increasing legal) immigration.
Scorecard of El Gordo D-
Scorecard of DeFazio B+
If you need a reminder of what Gordon Smith voted for when he said "aye" to S. 2611 here is a partial list:
Grants amnesty to millions (nobody really knows how many millions) of illegal aliens living in the U.S.
Allows illegal aliens to claim Social Security benefits for work performed illegally.
Requires consultation with the Mexican government before construction of fencing along the border.
Grants amnesty to family members of illegal aliens who live outside the country.
Admits hundreds of thousands unskilled “guest workers” through a new guest worker program and gives them a direct path to legal permanent residence and citizenship.
El Gordo sold out our sovereignty, sold out the rule of law, sold out his constituents and sold out every American citizen and legal immigrant. He deserves to be replaced.
