Christine Jones Pandering and Delusional on Immigration, Border Security
Christine Jones puts the goober into gubernatorial.
Indeed, the former GoDaddy pimp-ess and GOP candidate for governor's rhetoric on the issue of "border security" is proving increasingly delusional.
Jones has zero experience in politics, and it shows. Anyone proud to have the endorsement of Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, aka, "studboi1,"should have their itty-bitty red head examined.
christinejones.com Jones, not the brightest bulb when it comes to immigration...
Particularly after this last stunt, where he ginned up a fake Murrietta-type situation in Oracle, and had rednecks harassing busloads of American children. You know, instead of the migrant kids they wanted to terrorize.

Even without the Oracle debacle, Babeu had already disgraced himself and his office by posting nearly nude pics of himself on a gay pickup site ("7" cut") and threatening his visa-overstaying Mexican ex-boyfriend with deportation.
But Babeu, whose county is not on the border (duh), is as close to a border-expert as Jones is gonna get. No wonder her so-called border security plan is a bunch of hooey.
In a letter published in Thursday's Arizona Republic, Jones defends herself from the obvious criticism of her plan to send National Guard troops to the border and spend a bunch of other money the state does not have and, as she stupidly states in her campaign commercials, "send Obama the bill."
Her letter reads, in part:
Let's be clear about what I, as governor, can and will do.
Deploying 1,200 armed Arizona National Guard troops is permitted under state law as a deterrent near smuggling routes along the border. Civilian law enforcement will then search, apprehend, detain, arrest and, if required, strike to halt any incursion threatening the United States. In addition to troops, there are fencing and technology solutions.
Sure, the governor can call up the National Guard, but who is going to pay for it?
