You can tell the PacMan is getting desperate. This email just came my way, courtesy of his hate-filled campaign.
Dear Newsmax Reader,
Gaston County, NC: A drunk driving illegal alien kills Scott Gardner, a school teacher, and critically injures his wife and two children. This alien, Ramiro Gallegos, had been previously arrested five times for drunk driving and never deported as a criminal. Nationally, 12 Americans are killed by illegal aliens each day. Those casualty rates are higher than those in Iraq. We are in a war at home and my opponent, regrettably, is on the wrong side.
In our first televised debate my opponent called for amnesty for illegal aliens, but she called it documenting undocumented immigrants. Her party’s platform has the radical notion that cops are too busy with parking tickets to handle arresting and detaining criminal illegal aliens.
According to FAIR, North Carolina taxpayers now pay for more than $771 million dollars in primary and secondary education because of illegal immigration’s impact. And it’s not just money that is being siphoned off from your children's or grandchildren's education. The quality of the education is going down.
I could not believe that we are using an honors world history textbook that says Ronald Reagan increased the tensions in the Cold War but didn’t have space enough to discuss Reagan’s role in defeating the Soviet Union so decisively that it collapsed.
No, that history text didn’t have space for Reagan’s role in world history but the text did have space for a Spanish glossary.
I don’t know about you, but I'd rather have Ronald Reagan than a Spanish glossary in our textbooks.
Worst of all, my opponent supports the policy of the State Board of Education (a board she votes on) forcing a higher standard for school registration on our fellow Americans than on illegals. That’s right. If a citizen registers their child for kindergarten, he or she must produce a birth certificate. All an illegal has to do is point to the child’s name and a date written in the family Bible.
We can’t have harsher requirements for the people who are here legally than for illegals.
I have worked hard to bring jobs to North Carolina. But illegal immigration is taking jobs from inner city youths who have fewer opportunities for entry level employment to start with. How would you like to be one of these kids who doesn’t get pregnant, works hard in school, doesn’t join a gang, goes to church on Sunday, but when they go down to the fast food restaurant, they are told we can’t hire you because we need bi-lingual employees.
It just goes on and on and it needs stop now.
As Governor, I will work to take away the incentives like in-state tuition for people who aren’t even supposed to be here that pull illegals into North Carolina. I’ll work to expand the 287g program to help local law enforcement arrest, detain and deport criminal illegal aliens.
Get tough on illegals with your wallet
My opponent has two ways to pay for attack ads. First, she is in the pocket of Big Labor and they are protecting their investment over the years by running large numbers of false and misleading attack ads against me. And if that is not enough, she can always write her campaign a personal check for millions.
In a previous race running for Lt Governor, Perdue ran ads portraying herself as the coal miner’s daughter that made good. Even the Left wing rag, the Independent, harshly criticized the ad because it forgot to mention that her daddy owned the mine.
I can’t defend myself alone against her millions and the deep pockets of the Big Labor bosses. I can’t write a million check or borrow it from my father. My only hope is citizens like you who are fed up with the corruption in Raleigh that comes from one party rule will send small contributions.
She has big labor on her side, but I have you, the people of North Carolina.
I need your help and the help of everyone you know.
I am daily under attack by big labor using secret 527 committees. The only way that I can get my message out is with generous contributions from citizens like you. Can you see your way clear to send $25, $50 or $100 today. Even $5 or $10 would help out.
Americans losing job opportunities can’t speak for themselves. I will speak for all citizens who want this mess to stop.
PS. My opponent talks a lot about change but has no interest in changing this dire situation. There are good changes and bad changes, right changes and wrong changes. Removing the magnets that draw illegals into our state is the right change for North Carolina.
