Rep. Dana Rohrabacher,
101 Main Street #380
Huntington Beach, CA 92648
May I ask where you stand on the draconian “Securing America’s Future Act”, which is currently being touted by extreme conservative Republicans who are urging Paul Ryan to bring it to the floor for a vote? My understanding is that your views on immigration are hard right. Do you support this bill? Will you vote for it if it comes to the floor?
Proponents of this measure must know that it wouldn’t stand a chance in the Senate. The only reason for its promotion is to score political points and further poison an already toxic relationship between Republicans and Democrats on this issue. This is distinctly not what is needed as a way to resolve an obviously complex problem. What is needed is greater understanding and cooperation between the two parties, not further polarization.
I do hope you are not planning to side with the authors of this unhelpful bill, and would appreciate a clarification from you or your staff. Do you support the bill, or do you oppose it?
As a footnote, let me add that the paucity of information available on your website or in your public statements makes it difficult to know you thoughts on this and other important issues of the day. Your constituents need and deserve to know better where their representative stands.
