January XXXth, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
A big issue here in the Ward XII byelection race is the immigrant populace. This makes sense because of the higher concentration of people from the Muslim, Sikh, Hindu & other faiths here within the ward boundaries. Here Congressman Jim Cooper of Tennessee comments on immigration & how to strike the right balance for the refugees coming in while at the same time protecting the rights of citizens already here. Something the Federal government & its private partners need to work on here in Canada with mayors, councilors, & reeves from many municipalities as evidenced by all of the problems in bringing in the Syrian refugees so far, the system is whether progressives like to admit it or not, is very broken up here to.
"America is a nation of immigrants, & I support comprehensive immigration reform. We can find balance to fix our broken system & protect our nation."
