... on attrition and on defunding sanctuary cities. They rated him as "Yes" on local police taking a role in immigration enforcement and on border security. * Another NumbersUSA report card (link) gives him a C- from 2009 to 2012, but most of that is due to inaction rather than things he's done.

... immigrants and spoken out against sanctuary cities, and he opposes blanket amnesty that would grant full-citizenship rights without first requiring illegal immigrants to pay a fine and learn English...

Somehow the "continue" part has me a bit worried: after what...
