Steve Kagen Voted AGAIN to Allow Housing Assistance for Illegal Immigrants

So Congressman Kagen- Do you represent illegal immigrants or the taxpaying citizens in your district?

Washington- Steve Kagen (WI-08) seems to have a problem remembering who he represents in Washington . Today, Kagen cast a vote, for the second time, to allow tax-payer dollars to be doled out as housing assistance for illegal immigrants, taking precious resources from low-income Americans.

Kagen's endless allegiance for the liberal Democrat leadership has yet again resulted in the defeat of an important measure which would have ensured that only legal residents could receive assistance from the affordable housing fund.

“Steve Kagen is frivolously spending the tax-payers’ hard earned dollars on housing for illegal immigrants, while hard working citizens are left struggling,” said NRCC Communications Director Jessica Boulanger . “Steve Kagen continues to mount an atrocious voting record in Washington , which shows he is completely out of touch with his district.”

The motion was offered to the Expanding American Homeownership Act of 2007 (House Roll Call 875). Kagen voted against the measure, which would have required persons receiving assistance from the affordable housing fund to provide valid personal identification.
