  • Thank you for the welcome, I am proud to be a member

  • This was my response to his answers:


    Keven:

    I respectfully albeit vehemently disagree with you on your suggestion that 1070 is a “profiling” act. It is a LAW and a law up held mostly by the higher courts and eventually I feel will be upheld by SCOTUS as well. If the LAW is so terrible why have 30 states, including RI begun the process of passing legislation into law which would greatly enhance the ability to control illegal immigration in our nation. When I was in school at CCRI for Paralegal Studies (which I graduated from in 2006) I was fortunate to intern at the IIRI and was even more fortunate to witness the wonderful and joyful tear filled swearing in of over 600 new LEGAL immigrants who went through the time consuming and sometimes daunting task of becoming legal and earning the right to swear their allegiance to this great nation! I take visceral offense to those who cheat and break our laws by being in this country and utilizing our resources and services at the cost of the honest law abiding members of our societies.

    As for RI not having constitutional authority to assist the Federal Government in enforcing immigration laws already on the books, to this I would simply state that is what Constitutional Amendments are for.

    Again on your point about the sanctuary city’s in RI, I must respectfully disagree with you that if a member of Law Enforcement performs a legitimate stop or inquiry of an individual and finds that the individual is not in this country legally I believe they should in accord with written law detain said individual to be turned over to the Feds for proper disposition of their illegal status, i.e. deport them.

    As for the current debate ongoing regarding amending the 14th Amendment to NOT grant citizenship to children of illegal immigrants in our nation, I again must disagree with your stand on this matter. I have seen and see every day of my life the “breeding” of children of illegal immigrants for the sole purpose of creating an anchor scenario for the parents of those children. The 14th Amendment was originally created to protect the children of slaves and at the time was a good amendment, but it has become outdated and is being exploited beyond ones imagination by those who are in our country illegally. This creates an extreme burden upon our society in many ways, and it is just plain damned wrong. Pardon my language, but this is a passionate subject for this citizen.

    I am extremely pleased to hear about your being in favor of the 2nd Amendment as a card carrying member of the NRA!

    Sincerely,

    R. Michael Sheldon

    PS: I do thank you for taking the time to answer my questions, which is NOT typical of most political candidates in my experience.
  • This is a copy of an email sent to me by Keven McKenna (candidate for AG in RI):


    Mike:

    Thanks for your questions.

    1. What is your stand on AZ-1070, and would you enforce similar legislation in RI if the General Assembly passes said law?-

    If you mean Arizona’s profiling act in RI, it is nonesensial application. Shoe does not fit. Moreover, you can not arrest without probable Cause. Do you think you look like an illegal ? Do you want to be arrested based on looks?

    2. What would your position as AG be on illegal immigration reform in RI?
    R.I. has no constitutional authority and is pre-empted by the U.S. Constitution.

    3. What would you do as AG to curb “sanctuary city’s” in RI?

    If a R.I.police department is subverting federal law, it is a federal crime and they will be imprisoned by the Feds.
    If you are talking about chatter in the Phoenix, it is not the AG’s role.

    P.S. I am a strict constructionist in favor of gun rights on the state and federal.
    I am opposed to the regulation of guns in violation of the U.S. and R.I. constitution.

    What is your position on the challenge to the 14th Ammendment?

    There is no constitutional basis of which I have knowledge.
