Arnold has made his position on illegal immigration perfectly clear: "What he [Bustamante] doesnt understand is that people like myself waited 15 years to get citizenship, Schwarzenegger, who came to the United States from Austria in the 1960s, said. There are people who have been waiting 20 years. I find it unfair to all of a sudden push the whole thing with undocumented immigrants and say they should immediately get citizenship.
The film star told the John and Ken show on Los Angeles radio station KFI-AM 640 in a telephone interview that he wanted stricter controls and beefed-up patrols on the U.S. border with Mexico. He said he was also against legislation, currently being debated in Sacramento, that would give California drivers licenses to illegal immigrants -- a bill that Davis has said he would sign and Bustamante supports."
