ALIPAC Endorses Dave Hughes

ALIPAC Endorses Dave Hughes

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is endorsing the Congressional campaign of Republican Dave Hughes who is running against 28 year Democrat incumbent Collin Peterson who supports Amnesty for illegal aliens in Minnesota's 7th District.

Dave Hughes has made illegal immigration the top issue on his campaign website, where he promises to fund the border wall, deport illegal immigrants, and crack down on sanctuary cities and states. 

Dave Hughes has also completed ALIPAC's 2018 federal candidate survey where he promises to oppose "changing existing laws to accommodate millions of illegal immigrants through 'immigration reform', DACA, Dream Act, or Comprehensive Amnesty which would allow illegal aliens to either have a path to citizenship, a new visa, or some new form of legal status which would eventually lead to a new voting bloc of 11-20 million illegal immigrants, which would in turn destroy any future hopes of border or immigration law existence or enforcement by handing permanent political power to the Democrats."

Dave Hughes is a 21 year veteran of the United States Air Force who worked in combat zones for the US seven times and who currently works for General Atomics as an MQ-9 UAS Reaper (Drone) Instructor Pilot.

His Democrat opponent Collin Peterson supports Amnesty for illegal immigrants and has cosponsored Amnesty legislation such as the Dream Act Amnesty and bills that would put illegal immigrants into the US military to receive Amnesty. 

Rep. Collin Peterson also voted to protect and fund Obama's overtly illegal and unconstitutional DACA Amnesty orders which indicates support for dictatorial actions to support illegal immigrants in America.

"Minnesota voters have a clear choice in this race between an illegal alien Amnesty supporting Democrat like Collin Peterson who supports violating the US Constitution and our existing immigration laws with DACA Amnesty and a supporter of our existing Constitution, border and immigration laws like Dave Hughes," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "We will do our best to help voters remember on Election Day that a vote for Dave Hughes is a vote against Amnesty for illegal immigrants in America."

    My name is David Hughes and I am writing to seek your help. Back in Jan 2008, upon returning home to the US from a trip over to the UK, I was put into deportation proceedings due to the fact I am a UK citizen with a US Resident Alien Card and was arrested in 1996 for drug abuse, which the case was dismissed.
    I had to go to immigration court back and forth in Boston, Ma, and finally in 2012 the Judge (Hon Paul Gagnon) terminated the case without prejudice. 
    In 2011, I discovered family members I had been searching for, for over 40 yrs. (Father, brothers and sisters), so I came over to meet them all in Feb 2014. When I tried to return to the USA, a few weeks later I was not able to get on a plane home, because they told me that even though the case was terminated 2 yrs prior, the computer system said that I left the USA while my case was still pending, even though it had been 2 years since it was terminated.
    I have been stranded here in the UK for over 5 years and have tried to get back but they keep on insisting the case was still pending. I haven’t seen my wife and daughter in 5 yrs. I even wrote to Judge Gagnon but I guess he never received my message. Due to all of this, I have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, agoraphobia and last month, my doctor referred to me to a Parkinson’s disease specialist. It has been hard to find work due to my illness and have had to sleep on the streets and even had to eat garbage! I even got attacked by some people calling me “The American Infidel” (See picture below) and the police wouldn’t get involved because the guy said that I insulted his religion, which is totally untrue and the police even threatened to arrest me for insulting him, even though I didn’t, or wouldn’t insult anyone anyway. My doctor said that if I were to go home it would more than likely fix my depression and all the other issues. All this, due to a clerical error. Also now that I have been gone from the US for over a year, my green card has been classed as “Abandonment of US Residency” which is ridiculous!
    My mother committed suicide when I was ten yrs old and my father left when I was little and to go through life without that parental love and bond has been a lonely, hard life. All I ever wanted was my own family. It breaks my heart not only for my sake but for my little girl Isabella who doesn’t know what happened to her daddy. My wife (US born Citizen) and I have been married for 18 years I am asking you please to fix this problem as I can’t take it much more being without my family. As I am adopted I never had any blood relatives and so my daughter is my pride and joy. She was 9 yrs old when I left and is now 15 yrs old, she needs me now, more than ever. 
    I am pleading with you as a heartbroken father who has suffered for a long time over this, not only me but my family too. I don’t want for my daughter to go through life like I did wondering why or what happened to my father. I am a devout Christian and believe that family is extremely important, especially in this day and age. I am not safe here, I have been threatened by some people , nobody will help me, I even served in the US Army in 1987/8 . I did NOT abandon my residency; I simply came over to the UK to meet for the first time my family, which unfortunately I was rejected….again. I am not asking for any special treatments or anything like that, I just want to go home and be with my family. a lot of families these days are broken, and we are a lovely little family and have even been on the news locally in West Virginia where we live on my daughter’s first day at school. Please could you sort this mess out so I can get back to my family?
    I have made numerous phone calls over the past three years to Michael Yebernetsky at the US Embassy office in London, only to be transferred to his voicemail, and calls never returned. I have sent emails, sent in the documents as requested since a week after I got here in Feb 2014. I did everything I was supposed to do, my case was terminated and somebody didn’t take the ten minutes or so to update my status. Why didn’t they stop me at the airport when I flew out if I had a federal court case pending? I never would have left. 5 yrs is a long time for a 15 yr old, she needs her father and I need my family. We are not bad people, in fact our family are pillars of our community, I was on the news several times, Once when I ran into a house that was on fire, nobody was home except the dog and I couldn’t find him due to the intensity of the smoke and fire. Another time because I recovered a plastic bag from a dumpster which had kittens in it that someone had thrown out into the garbage., I resurrected an old race track (Ona Speedway) and got it up and running and provided good Saturday night entertainment for the folks in the tri state area (WV, KY & OH) Plus I have performed numerous free concerts to raise money for our church’s new building. Valley Chapel, Church of the Nazarene, Uxbridge, Ma. Ironically, the new church building is completed and I have yet to see it.
    I have reached the point of despair, I don’t know how long I can go on without my family, and seeing as I grew up without a family, It really hurts to think I have lost mine again. I am a desperate, heartbroken father who is at the end of my tether, please, sir, I am begging you to fix this error and let me come home and end this nightmare. With heartfelt sincerity, I throw myself at your mercy, please show me some compassion. I hate to see this wonderful little family ripped apart over a clerical error.
    Col. Don Ward is my US contact, ( 941 268 4753 ) I have worked with him and for him for the past 17 yrs, you would love him, he is a good man who taught me integrity, patience and wisdom just to name a few. I have given him power of attorney to deal with and speak on my behalf in all things related with me.

    I thank you for your time Respectfully Yours
