Kirk Adams Speaker of the AZ House on 1070
Kirk Adams is Speaker of the Arizona House and a candidate for Congress. He supported SB 1070 through his legislative work and defended it in numerous national news outlets after passage. Recently, Adams took part in a forum at the Heritage Foundation on SB 1070, and the state’s role in immigration policy.
Commenting on this week’s ruling, Adams said, “The Supreme Court’s decision is a mixed one. Immigration will continue to be a primary responsibility of the federal government but, as this decision confirms, state and local law enforcement have an important role to play. I am hopeful that Congress and the president will work to secure our border and create a functioning legal system that reflects our values of free enterprise and opportunity for all.”
