Who is paying for these children to be flown to U.S.? As the passengers arrived at U.S. airports did they not have to pass through customs where passports and visas are examined? How did these groups of people get beyond these check points? Who are the people behind the scenes that are pulling some mighty long strings to get around security check points.

At same stop, State Sen. candidate Frese says he has no plan that cuts $1 billion from education

House Minority Leader Tom Cross spent Wednesday flying around the state of Illinois with Adam Andrzejewski to promote the “Save Illinois Taxpayers” pledge.

The two men stopped at Quincy Regional Airport and were joined by State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) and Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese.

The three-pronged approach is to call for a freeze on local property taxes for three years, comprehensive audits and a repeal of the 67 percent state income tax increase passed last year.

 

"Taxpayers, Families and seniors are being taxed to death in Illinois," Andrzejewski said. "We must freeze property taxes, stop the fraud and mismanagement and cut taxes."

 "For years, Democrats in Illinois have over-spent, over-borrowed and over-taxed Illinois families," Cross said. "Their plan has driven jobs out of our state and created record debt.  Illinois needs a new direction that focuses on holding the line on taxes, balancing our budget and creating jobs."

During the airport visit, Frese said State Sen. John Sullivan’s newest television campaign ad blasting his education plan isn’t true because he hasn’t endorsed an education plan and he never said he wanted to cut $1 billion in education funding.

“I’m pro-education and pro-educator…my wife is a teacher, her sister is a teacher in Knox County and my mother-in-law is a retired teacher,” Frese said. “At no time have I endorsed in my campaign an education plan of any type and at no time have I said I want to cut $1 billion from the education budget in the state of Illinois. To say so is untruthful.”

The Sullivan ad says WTAD Radio is the source of the information during an appearance on the Morning Meeting in February. Click here to listen to the source.

Frese said Sullivan needs to focus on his own record, which includes funding cuts to Western Illinois University and “stop making things up”.
