The anti-illegal immigration group Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has announced a new round of federal candidate endorsements, and included among the candidates are local Republicans Rep. Peter Roskam of the Sixth District (parts of Cook and DuPage counties) and Jesse Jackson Jr.’s GOP challenger, Isaac Hayes. “Illegal immigration is a top issue in the minds of voters and it relates to many other issues such as taxation, crime, terrorism, jobs, education, and the economy,” says ALIPAC president William Gheen in a press release about the endorsements. “We are looking for candidates who want our existing border and immigration laws enforced instead of a Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty that would make millions of illegals new voters and thus destroy the borders of America.”
