Congressman Jeff Flake Flakes on Support of Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Well that didn't take long.

Just over a month after announcing his candidacy for the Senate seat being vacated by Senator Jon Kyl, Congressman Jeff Flake has gone the route of Senator John McCain and caved to Arizona's culture of Conservative kookdom by abandoning his support of comprehensive immigration reform.

Flake, a one-time rare-for-Arizona Republican advocate of a guest-worker program and a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, now says he's only focused on securing the border.

"In the past I have supported a broad approach to immigration reform -- increased border security coupled with a temporary worker program. I no longer do," Flake says in a statement first published by the Arizona Republic.

"I've been down that road, and it is a dead end. The political realities in Washington are such that a comprehensive solution is not possible, or even desirable given the current leadership. Border security must be addressed before other reforms are tackled."

Flake is the only declared candidate for the seat, but there are rumors other far-right-wing border hawks -- like Congressman Trent Franks, former TV pitchman J.D. Hayworth, and even former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin -- are considering a run.

Flake's prior position on immigration reform hasn't exactly made him one of the cool kids among Arizona's GOP brass, either, which likely played a role in his flip-flop.

Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman Rob Haney is campaigning against Flake's candidacy in his push to get Franks to run for the seat. See some of the anti-Flake links posted on a Haney-backed Conservative website here

Not to mention, last month, Haney sent an email to county GOPers urging them to write to Franks and ask him to run.

We figured Flake would have to make certain concessions in order to appease the far right, we just didn't anticipate a flip-floppy, McCain-esque, "Fix the Dang Fence" campaign before he even had a primary opponent.

Coward. I kind of liked this guy for having some balls, but he's clearly a puppet just like the rest of them.

Nah, he is just focused on getting elected. After being elected, this man will do the right thing. He's one of the few in the Az GOP that is trustworthy.

THE IMMIGRATION BATTLE FOR AMERICA'S SURVIVAL

The majority of Americans don't care which side of the world people come from to settle here, as long as they arrive legally? The Southwest has been invaded and unless the do-nothing US Government starts enforcing the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill, as it was intended, we will just been washing billions of taxpayer dollars as down the eternal drain, as we have for decades. Arizona has been demonized because it places it's honest citizens-residence first, by ethnocentralist groups and radical pilot politicians who have their own agenda to colonize this nation with the unfortunate poor. The Leftist climb on the bandwagon with pushing the racist card, because they will not examine the truth and are involved in this philosophies of world Government.; facts they will not disclose about spending taxpayer’s money and building larger government agencies so their agenda is successful. These Leftist want wide open borders, with no consideration for the taxpaying public. They can lie in the Liberal press all they want, but the truth is Americans are sick and tired of supporting the impoverished of other countries.

A letter from the promoters of corporate greed, doomed the first chance of fiscal American survival against the illegal alien occupation. The letter signified the influence of the major instigator, the US Chamber of Commerce, whom believes that discount illegal labor is an essential to our wilting economy? A Guest Worker program would alleviated this problem, if it wasn't full of visa loopholes? We already bring into America over a million and a half a year, so exasperating the process just make citizens and authorized residents resentful and angry. This is especially true when the company bosses do not drive on congested highways, they live in gated mansions or isolated homes and have no dealings with the imported foreign crime and the crumbling neighborhoods full of poverty-stricken foreigners. For Tea Party is apposed to any form of Amnesty, which includes so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Rescind the birthright citizenship law, except one parent is a citizen, Any form of Dream Act or Sanctuary City policies, until the border fence is sealed tight and controlled by at least 5.000 military presence. We just cannot subsidize the worlds poor as its threatening especially the American workers on the lower scale, the State and federal economy and unrest in this nation.

The business industries find ways negate the tax code, but the men and women taxpayers have no such political advantages. Ordinary Americans have no special privileges and cannot attribute, but a few dollars to political campaigns. Only united voices as with the TEA PARTY can fix the hardships of all the populace, by stopping the "Tax and Spend" Liberals, who a major part of bring more illegal aliens to our shores and borders.

Leftist -Democrats and even some Republicans opposed the advancement of the-REAL-fence and placed obstacles so the E-Verify system of catching foreign nationals, before they were hired. However, the Leftist portion of our government haven't been able to place obstacles in the way of Secure Communities as yet? Just about every newspaper calls illegal aliens--undocumented immigrants, or other De-Facto name, when in truth they are foreign aliens and have no right to be here. The TEA Party knows this and will fight against the Liberal progressives and any other crazy scheme, thinking that Americans are not going to stop these parodies of our laws. Scrutinizing the papers today, one article accessed the growing population of Arizona. We accept high demand skilled workers, but their is no financial room for people who need public welfare. The Bloomberg E-news states When talking about the Arizona census population:

Tests of the limits and effectiveness of immigration policies and procedures are underway in Arizona, where the Hispanic population increased 46.3 percent between 2000 and 2010 to account for 29.6 percent of the 6.4 million residents. Of course the US Census didn't distinguish between honest Legal and illegal persons which Obama’s Leftist Czars and thought was justified. NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS! They are illegal as they broached the sovereignty of our border. If there was any true intention to seal our border from economic migrants, including the instant birthright baby, entry would have classed as a felony. Its illogical to think that the Greatest nation on Earth, cannot control the inflow of foreign national.

NOT ONE WORD ABOUT HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA ARE ILLEGAL? THIS MIGHT NOT IMPRESS YOU RIGHT NOW, UNTIL HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS MORE START DRAINING YOUR STATE TREASURIES THEN THE INDIVIDUAL WILL DO SOMETHING? MY GUESS WHEN WE ARE OVERWHELMED BY POPULATION GROWTH AND A SHORTAGE OF OIL, ENERGY AND WATER, PEOPLE MAY TAKE NOTICE? YOUR HOME CAN BE IN FURTHEST STATE IN THE UNION, OR ANYWHERE ELSE BUT THE PESTILENCE OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WILL FOLLOW YOU THERE. MISSOURI IS NOT EXEMPT FROM INVASION?

All the US government has to do, is throw conniving business owners in prison, when they hire illegal aliens. Cross-Reference all documentation for person applying for welfare, seal the borders with troops and the double layer fence and amend the 14th Amendment. In addition every sponsor of family chain migration must be held accountable. Becoming a member of the Tea Party in your district will elect more positive thinking Candidates, to stop the bleeding of State treasuries, federal coffers and your rising taxes. Plain and simple-we cannot support the poor and indigent no more or we too will be sinking to a third world society.
