I am thankful to Matzav.com for granting me the opportunity to campaign my message as I run for NJ State Assembly. I also commend Matzav.com for the superb job they are doing in providing kosher news to Jews all over the world. They have clearly filled a void and I wish them much continued success. However, the reality is that Matzav.com is not political campaign website. I hope that June 3rd, Matzav will be able to report the news of a Solomon victory in the Republican primaries. Nevertheless, before I sign off on Matzav, I ask to defend my position on illegal immigrants, which I base a huge part of my campaign on.
Any politician who tries to tell you that illegal immigrants don’t have a huge stake in our tax increases is a liar. Any politician who tells you that nothing can be done about the problem of illegal immigrants doesn’t deserve to hold their position. Their is a lot that can be done about the problem of illegal immigrants without violating the law of racial profiling.
Firstly and most important, laws can be passed to require the Department of Immigration to do annual inspections that businesses are only employing legal citizens or visitors with the right to reside in the United States.
Secondly, we can crack down on slumlords who are renting to 10 families in a house designed for one family. We can cut off their ability to collect governmental programs. Welfare reform can be done without hurting the frum community by making exceptions for students. Politicians can use their influene to have local police crack down on illegal immigrants. Clifton Ave. has been taken over by illegal immigrants and the Jewish business owners have been either forced to rent elsewhere at much higher prices or simply go out of business. Clifton could have been saved if police would have enforced the no loitering law, which is a Lakewood town ordinance.
Again, I thank Matzav for giving me a voice. I close by asking you to visit my website, SolomonforGeneralAssembly.com, and consider a vote for Solomon on June 2nd.
