Q. What serious issue in your state would you like the next president to address?

Immigration. I don't know a whole lot, but when I went to college I learned that when you use the word 'illegal,' then everything following it is also illegal. I don't know the answer. It's bit of a sticky wicket, but clearly we need to have some resolution.
