Meuser for Congress Releases Statement Supporting ICE

POTTSVILLE– The Meuser for Congress campaign released the following statement reiterating his support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and their agents and denounced increased calls from the liberal leftists to abolish ICE.

“There is a growing movement among the liberal left to demand the elimination of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol. This has gone from being whispered amongst the radical left to be a key campaign plank for Democratic candidates across the country. I think that is an irresponsible and dangerous position,” Meuser said. “Those supporting this policy are saying that we will have no borders, you can ignore our laws and stay in our country as long as you like. By taking this position, they are saying that dangerous gangs like MS-13 are welcome to come here to commit crimes and put legal American lives in jeopardy.

The News Item: Meuser hopes to bring experience to Washington

Republican Congressional candidate Dan Meuser says public service is in his blood and he’s ready to serve as representative of Pennsylvania’s 9th district in Washington, D.C.

Meuser, 54, first threw his hat in the ring for Congress in the 2008 primary, but lost the Republican nomination in a close vote to Chris Hackett. Beginning in 2011, he was given the opportunity to be involved in public service for four years as secretary of revenue under Gov. Tom Corbett.

As secretary of revenue, Meuser negotiated with Amazon to collect remitted sales tax within the state and collected $48 million within the first year. He said he was part of Corbett’s team that created a performance-based tax credit of 5 cents per barrel for companies using Pennsylvania’s natural gas in the process of making ethylene, which he believes to be one of the main reasons Pennsylvania was chosen as the site of the Shell cracker plant in Beaver County.

“The main footprint we left at revenue was an understanding that the department should work for the tax payer; that it’s tax payers’ money and it was never us against them. It’s us for them,” said Meuser.

Meuser’s experience as secretary of revenue gave him an understanding of how to get things done and help him understand what motivates legislators, he said. He can help bills and amendments that are in the interest of the 9th district become more passable through discussions, negotiations and not being afraid to point out who is not “on board with a particular piece of legislation because it doesn’t serve their self interest or because it serves special interests.”
