Posted on 07/30/2019 12:37:55 PM PDT by rktman
Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate Mark Kelly blasted an initiative to make Tucson a "sanctuary city," saying that he will not vote for the measure.
"(I'm) strongly against this, I'm not going to vote for it," Kelly said Tuesday, "I think it's a mistake."
In November, voters will decide whether Tucson declares itself Arizona's first "sanctuary city," which limits local law enforcements cooperation with federal immigration agents.
Kelly, a former Navy fighter pilot and astronaut, said cities and states should follow federal laws.
"This is contrary to that so I'm not in favor of that. I think it's also detrimental to the City of Tucson in that it could impact some federal funding it receives," he said.
In criticizing the measure, Kelly finds himself in agreement with his likely political opponent next year, Republican Sen. Martha McSally.

I said this 4 months ago.
AZ RAT Senators and candidates have been told to talk like Republicans so they can pickup another seat.
Once they get two RAT Senators, they will change faster than McCain running to the Restroom.
THIS is why Kelly is going to trounce Martha McCainy. It won’t even be close. The AZ GOP is completely lose. Songbird dragged it into the grave with him.
Completely correct you are, my good FRiend.
Mark Kelly is an Anti Second Amendment Weasel, and will pretend to be a non-lefty until the second he's (cough, cough) elected, then he'll stand with Nancy, Chuck and Diane to confiscate your firearms, and will potty on the border security at least as fast you describe.
He’s a racist.
He’s doing his McCain routine. If it worked for Juan, it will work for him. Run as a conservative Arizona. Once you’re re-elected run to the left with all of your might. Kelly is a moron.
So far Sinema has been better than both McCain and Flake......
Same thing Flimsey Grahamnesty is doing.....
The AZ GOP is completely lost////
I have some hope. Ducey won comfortably and Kelli Ward is the AZ GOP chair now.
We need Rep Andy Biggs or Paul Gosar to run for the Senate!
I think he is AGAINST the idea of Tucson being a sanctuary city. ?? I am not a fan of his, but I think he’s on the same side on this one issue, as we might be.
I had the good fortune to go to Tucson for a convention in about 1995. July, of course. It was 115 degrees out. But it was a wonderful trip. Stayed at La Paloma, which was a gorgeous resort, surrounded by mountains.
If Tucson wants to be Arizona’s first “sanctuary city”, hopefully they will get enough revenue from the new illegals to offset all the tourist dollars they will forfeit.
I believe that is correct. Act like a “conservative” then stick it to the voters.
Yea, AZ voters must be the most gullible of the gullible.
Zathras stated s/he believes this is by design until they get two Dem Senators. I don't think so. A friend of mine dated Sinema, and thinks she wants to be President. He said she couldn't care less what the Democrat party thinks or wants. She is for herself alone.
That’s the way I read her as well.
Didn’t Mark Giffords Kelly fly the A-6 Intruder?
Kelly is NOT a former fighter pilot.
Dennis Welch, the writer of this piece, doesn’t know the difference between a fighter aircraft and an attack aircraft.
