Schweikert Recognizes Victory for Arizona

Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) issued this statement after the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision on Arizona’s immigration law, Senate Bill 1070:

“I am heartened that the Supreme Court affirmed the heart of SB 1070, Section 2(B).

“The federal government has failed my state with its inability to properly enforce immigration law. Now Arizona, with the core of SB 1070, can implement what Washington has failed to do so many times.

“This is a victory for Arizona and our state’s right to defend our citizens and protect our borders.”

I didn’t think I could get more frustrated with the Obama Administration’s partisanship and overreach – until this week. In the space of a week, the President has declared that he will not enforce immigration laws and blocked the release of tens of thousands of documents related to “Operation Fast and Furious” by invoking executive privilege to shield himself and his Attorney General.
