One wants rule of law, other endorsed by amnesty
Alley has been endorsed by Oregonians For Immigration Reform, a group seeking tough measures to bar illegal immigrants from working in Oregon. Jim Ludwick, the group's president, said he doesn't think an Arizona-type law would fly politically in Oregon in any event.
He's more focused on pushing lawmakers to require Oregon employers to use the federal E-Verify system for new hires, a position endorsed by Alley.
Jeff Stone of the Oregon Association of Nurseries said his group believes that tougher employer requirements should be made at the federal level, along with a broad overhaul of immigration law.
"For us, it's always been about fixing the entire system," Stone said.
Stone's group hasn't made a primary endorsement, but it is part of Ag-PAC, which has endorsed Dudley. The ex-Trail Blazer has also been endorsed by the Oregon Farm Bureau and the Oregon Restaurant Association, two groups also at loggerheads with Oregonians For Immigration Reform.
Allen Alley has been endorsed by OFIR. Chris Dudley has been endorsed by the the AG group and the restaurant association. I wonder which one is more likely to get illegal aliens to self deport from Oregon?
Which issue contributes to Oregon's culture, Oregon's budget, Oregon's schools, Oregon's jails and Oregon's quality of life like the issue of illegal aliens?
Vote Allen Alley.
