Jim Bender - US Senate 2010
Jim Bender, Republican candidate for US Senate released the following statement regarding the Justice Department’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Arizona immigration law.
“The people of Arizona have spoken and once again, the Obama administration is ignoring the will of the people as they did in pushing Obamacare,” said Bender. “The elected officials in Arizona had to take action after years of increased murders, kidnappings, and other violent acts at the hands of some illegal immigrants because the federal government failed to protect their citizens.”
“President Obama has called this law "misguided," but quite simply what is really misguided is the governments constant overtaxing, overspending, and intruding into every aspect of our lives. They are neglecting what the federal government exists to do; protect its citizens. The Obama administrations mismanagement of the illegal immigration problem has resulted in every state becoming a border state. We need to secure our borders tight and solid and the federal government has to start doing what they have been entrusted to do by our Constitution and keep Americans safe.”
