At a Center Right meeting on July 25 at McGuireWoods’ Richmond office Â a discussion on the current Congressional immigration bill was lead by Â Michael Thompson Sr. Â Two speakers supported the immigration bill. Â Two Republican candidates for Senate spoke, Howie Lind and Shak Hill, both from Fairfax county. Â About 20 people were in attendance and participated in the discussion.
Howie Lind stated that we must first secure our borders and fix our broken visa system. Â Once those things have been accomplished we can began a discussion of what to do with the current 11 million illegal immigrants in our country. Â Shak Hill had a very different view. Â His view, “let them in,” referring to the illegals crossing our southern border, a rather surprising statement for a Republican candidate for Senate.
