JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller says the U.S. should bill the governments of people who enter this country illegally for policing, housing, food and transportation.

Miller’s campaign Wednesday released a seven-point plan for addressing illegal immigration.

The proposal also calls for immediate completion of a fence along the southern border of the U.S. and stopping benefits, like health care, for people who are in this country illegally.

Miller called it a commonsense approach to addressing the issue.

Miller is among the candidates seeking the GOP nomination for the Senate seat held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. Also running are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and former Natural Resources commissioner Dan Sullivan.

A fourth GOP candidate, John Jaramillo, is also running but has reported no fundraising activity.
