(Phoenix, AZ) The Schweikert for Congress campaign today welcomed Ben Quayle's decision to abandon his previous support for policies that he admitted were "backdoor amnesty" and oppose policies like President Obama's plan to allow illegal immigrants under the age of 30 to stay in the country.
Just last month in an interview with KPNX Channel 12 in Phoenix, Quayle expressed support for an immigration policy nearly identical to what was proposed by President Obama last week.
This week Quayle called those very same policies "backdoor amnesty" when he announced he was introducing legislation to block President Obama's policy.
"We commend Ben Quayle for seeing the light," said Schweikert for Congress campaign manager Dan Caldwell. "Quayle's 180 degree turn on this issue is good for Arizona. Typically politicians dig in and try to justify their positions and often take months, if not years, to change their position. Ben Quayle took less than a month to change his."
