(Scottsdale, AZ) Republican candidate David Schweikert today called on Congressman Harry Mitchell to join him in supporting SB 1070 – the anti-illegal immigration law recently passed by the Arizona Legislature.
“Because our state has taken the brunt of the federal government’s unwillingness to secure our southern border and crack down on illegal immigration, the Arizona Legislature correctly decided to act,” said David Schweikert. “I applaud their action and support their commitment to protecting our state. I call on Congressman Mitchell to join me in supporting this necessary legislation,” continued Schweikert.
David Schweikert also asked Mitchell to join him in condemning Congressman Raul Grijalva’s call for businesses to boycott Arizona. “Harry Mitchell needs to immediately condemn Grijalva’s call for a boycott,” continued Schweikert. “Grijalva’s call for a boycott is irresponsible and Harry Mitchell should repudiate it.”
