Tale of betrayal
GOP traitors among us
Senator Pearce reports on perfidy in the legislature:
I sorry to report that my bill, HB2280, which would have ended Sanctuary City policies in the state of Arizona, failed to pass out of the House. We had passed it out of the Senate and Governor Brewer would have signed it into law, so all we needed was House passage.
Knowing this, the open-border folks did what they could do stall the bill or block it outright. First they assigned it to a committee whose chairman is an immigration lawyer and well-known open border advocate. Then, after we went around that committee and attached the language to another bill, they held it up until the wee hours of the morning on the final day of session, even waiting until after the budget votes were taken so that a number of members could duck the vote entirely and simply go home.I am considering taking the measure to the ballot as a voter initiative and will keep you all informed about our next step. I’m also including an update on this bill from the Pachyderm Coalition’s Southern Arizona Chapter. To not enforce our laws is shameful, to ignore the deaths, maiming of citizens and our police officers is criminal and to ignore the billions in cost to Arizona taxpayers is irresponsible. I don't care what spin they put on the effort to block enforcement and they will, it is in Violation of their Oath of Office and their Constitutional duty and it is illegal under federal law.
