Congressman Flake Urges SCOTUS to Uphold SB 1070


Obama Administration Ought to Focus on Securing Border Instead of Suing Arizona

Washington, D.C. – Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today urged the Supreme Court to uphold SB 1070, Arizona’s immigration enforcement law.

Congressman Flake has consistently opposed the Obama Administration’s decision to sue Arizona over the law.

“It should be expected that states like Arizona will take action to enforce immigration laws when the federal government continues its long history of failing to do so,” said Flake.

“The Obama Administration ought to focus on securing the border instead of suing Arizona for trying to help.”

Congressman Flake has introduced H.R. 1507, the Border Security Enforcement Act of 2011. Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl have introduced the legislation in the Senate. Among the 10 key provisions of the bill is the deployment of up to 6,000 National Guard troops and 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents to the United States-Mexico border by 2016. It would create additional Border Patrol stations along the southwest border and create six additional permanent Border Patrol Forward Operating Bases and upgrade existing bases.

  1. Build the DANG fence – oops wrong guy but no difference. And than there is lire lire Cardon, hasn’t even been there and already talking out of the side of his mouth.

  2. Are you kidding me???!!

    Jeffy now wants to SUPPORT 1070??? After doing all he could to destroy it??

    Must be election time.

    We currently have three flakes in Washington – let’s remove ALL THREE!

    • “It is disappointing to see the federal government choosing to intervene in a state statute instead of working with Arizona to create sustainable solutions to the illegal immigration issue that our state and country so desperately need.” – Jeff Flake, July 2010

      Jeff Flake was against the Obama lawsuit against SB1070 in 2010. He is still against the Obama lawsuit in 2012. No change in position. Keep trying… LOL!

  3. Stop McRINO Now says:

    McFlake is a day late and a dollar short. Perhaps he should take in another one of his daughter’s beauty pageants.

    • Stop McMcMc McNow says:

      Flake is a McDay late and a McDollar short. Pehaps he should take in another McOne of his McDaughter’s McBeauty McPageants.

      McMcMcMcMcLOL!

  4. conservative02 says:

    Democrat-lite Jeff Flake was for amnesty before he was against it. It must be an election year with all of the RINO flip-flopping. I’m not sure Cardon is any better, but, I am definitely done with Flake. Time for a change.

    • Democrat-lite? LOL! How many “Democrat-lites” or “RINO’s” have 100% ratings from the Club for Growth like Jeff Flake? Or 100% ratings from the American Conservative Union like Jeff Flake? LOL! Keep trying…

      • Mesa Constitutional Conservative says:

        VSB, it’s a shame that geniuses like Talma…er…”Stop McRINO Now” and “conservative02″ have a single criteria for determining whether one is conservative or not: hate Mexicans like the xenophobic racists they are, or you’re a RINO even though you are against illegal immigration and want the border fixed, and the rest of the problems solved.

  5. This pretty-boy S.O.B. has been opposed to EVERY step Arizona has taken to deal with the massive invasion from Mexico, begining with Prop 200 in 2004. Brewer signed SB 1070 two years ago, where has Flake been for two years? Now he’s stepping back across the line (under pressure from Cardon) to grab a Senate seat. I’d sooner vote for Raul Grijalva.

  6. I was against it before I was for it!

Speak Your Mind
