HAYWORTH QUESTIONS McCAIN’S ELECTION YEAR CONVERSION ON BORDER SECURITY
J.D. Hayworth stated today that U.S. Senator John McCain’s recent call for troops on the border is yet another election year conversion which only came after the shooting death of Rob Krentz, a lifelong rancher in Southeastern Arizona. Mr. Krentz was found shot to death after encountering an apparent illegal alien found at one of his cattle watering holes.
J.D. Hayworth said “I’m glad John McCain has decided to join the effort to secure our borders. I only wish this same passion and fervor had come sooner. One day of anger and outrage does not make up for 28 years of inaction.”
Hayworth has long called for the federal government to act and step up its efforts to secure our borders. Border security is national security and it is time that we enforce the law. For Arizonans, border security is also quite literally a matter of personal security.
Hayworth also supports Arizona SB1070 which empowers local law enforcement officers to identify, detain, and help deport those within the borders of Arizona illegally.
Hayworth is challenging McCain in the Arizona Republican primary August 24th. One reason Hayworth is challenging McCain is because of McCain’s long-standing commitment to “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to illegal aliens.
Hayworth sponsored the anti-amnesty “Enforcement First Act” during his tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives.
