Arizona Immigration Law Sponsor Endorses Long
State Senator, Immigration Enforcement Leader Knows Who Will Fight Against Amnesty In Washington
Orlando—Today, Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, the author of SB1070, Arizona’s new immigration law, endorsed Todd Long in his bid to unseat freshman lawmaker Alan Grayson (D-FL). Pearce was one of the headliners at Long’s Support Arizona rally earlier this month and is one of the most outspoken advocates against illegal immigration. Senator Pearce joins Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, and Congressman Steve King (Iowa) in supporting Long who has been leading an aggressive fight against illegal immigration and amnesty.
“I happily offer my full endorsement and support to Todd Long in his run for Congress. In Todd, I see a conservative who fights with the warrior spirit of our Founders and that is what America needs right now,” Pearce continued. “I ask the people of the Eighth District of Florida to send Todd to Washington to fight against illegal immigration and help us finally put an end to this growing crisis.”
Long said, “It was Thomas Jefferson who told us that the execution of our laws is more important than the making of them. One of the few legitimate functions of our federal government is to protect our borders and our sovereignty and thus far the federal government has been derelict in its duty. I want to thank Senator Pearce for his support and I promise him and the people of the Eighth District that I will fight tirelessly to secure our borders, make sure American jobs go to American citizens, and stand up for the rule of law.”
Long recently led a cross-country road trip to Arizona for a rally to support the Arizona law at Bolin Memorial Park across from the Arizona State Capitol. The Arizona rally was the last in a series of rallies that began in Orlando with stops in Houston and Las Cruces.
