Asked whether they would have signed SB1070 in 2010:
Christine Jones There are millions upon millions of people living in the shadows in this country
Frank Riggs I support the employer sanctions law and the detention of individuals under the show me your papers law
Scott Smith: Whether you like it or not this is a federal issue. The best way to secure the border is by expanding legal trade
Andrew Thomas We need to put the National Guard on the border, we need to build a fence, and we need to deal with liberal judges who are tossing our immigration laws
Ken Bennett For those that are here illegally, we need a mechanism for them to get square with the law, pay the fines and penalties that is not amnesty we are a nation of immigrants
We want to focus on the drug cartels and the human trafficking and I think that that in many ways is mutually exclusive of the good things that happen on the border

Who are we backing in the Republican primary for governor? I think a prerequisite for any candidate is they have to DENOUNCE traitor McLame!
Thomas or Riggs it is.
Just who is living in the shadows....I see illegals everywhere
Not sure if the Smith guy or the Bennett guy is the bigger Amnesty Liberal
I’ll go with Smith, who sounds like a NAFTA/NAU Socialist. Trade, especially government-mandated and soverignity robbing free trade, is why we have such an Illegal Alien problem today. And, those who are free trade liberals are mainly the biggest supporters of Illegal Alien Amnesty
Uh, trespassers? Bus ‘em to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in D(etention) C(enter).
And we are NOT a nation of immigrants. I was born here as my children, my parents, grandparents, and so on, just like millions of other citizens.
Yes sometime in the distant or not so distant past our ancestors were immigrants or native.
I’m indigenous now.
Andrew Thomas: 16 Ken Bennett: 7
SECRETARY of STATE:
Wil Cardon: 19 Justin Pierce: 15
ATTORNEY GENERAL: Mark Brnovich: 19 Tom Horne: 17
SUPERINTENDENT of PUBLIC INSTRUCTION: Diane Douglas: 35
John Huppenthal: 4
Riggs was a Congresman from California in the 1990s.
Yup, you’re right. When I hear that ‘’We’re a nation of immigrants’’ line I reply “we’re a nation of laws’’. Boy does THAT shut ‘em up. Try it sometime. Believe, you’ve got the floor after that.
Either Thomas or Riggs
Thomas seems to have made enemies of many officials.
Which leaves Riggs
BTW, Bennett is a fool and a coward.
The don’t actually “live” in the shadows, they’re just in the shade taking a siesta.
OMG. ROTFLMFAO That was really funny!!!!!!
Well that should narrow the field.
They probably mean shade trees near any Home Depot.
The immigration discussion is in the third video.
The Raza in the audience wanted to heckle Thomas. The moderator told them to keep quiet.
Thomas: “When Sheriff Arpaio and I were enforcing the law, illegals were fleeing the state. That is a fact. We shut it down. Now they stay and are protesting”.
“I think a prerequisite for any candidate is they have to DENOUNCE traitor McLame!”
It’s also a GOOD STRATEGY. If you’re stuck running in a large crowd like that, you need to so something that STANDS OUT. I cannot think of anything better than to beat up McCain, especially on AMNESTY - it will get you coverage and it will draw maybe 40% or more voters to you - for a large crowd, that would be an AWESOME performance.
As far as November goes - just pick your words carefully (starting now) - in other words, don’t use loaded terms like “wetback”, etc., you don’t need to and they will BITE YOU in November. English is a big language, there are plenty of softer terms that will get the point across.
(the reason that I mention November is because that is likely what’s holding these people back from playing hard ball now - they need to worry about one race at a time, but also be careful not to sabotage themselves for the next race)
