Immigration, A Workable Immigration Policy

“We do NOT need a wall we simply need to enforce our current laws. Illegals are illegal & those here legally should follow the laws ( almost all do ) of the land.

Organized Labor Unions

“The city Unions all have contracts and their fair. I do believe the Police Officers Rank & file salaries need to be reviewed as it is a more dangerous position daily. The Union members of The ATU ( The Rapid Transit ) have been with out a contract for 2 years. This is unacceptable as management is not bargaining in good faith. We must settle this contract soon.”
