Arizona's 7th Congressional District Representative Raul "Boycott Arizona" Grijalva has done it again: betrayed Southern Arizona home and business owners and kicked them in the teeth. From the June 19, 2012 Arizona Daily Star online:
WASHINGTON — The Republican-controlled U.S. House approved a bill today that would allow the Border Patrol to circumvent more than a dozen environmental laws on all federally managed lands within 100 miles of the borders with Mexico and Canada.
The newest member of Congress, Tucson CD-8 Rep. Democrat Ron Barber, crossed party lines to vote for the bill shortly after he was sworn into office Tuesday.
“Border security is the No. 1 priority for the people who live and work along our nation’s southern border,” Barber, who represents portions of the Arizona border region with Mexico, said in a written statement. “There is no doubt that this bill will make our borders more secure. But this legislation is far from perfect and I will work to make changes as it moves through the process.”
But you, Mr. Grijalva, you make "Crucial environmental protections," one of your weapons to keep the Border Patrol from effectively doing their jobs - catching illegal aliens and protecting U.S. Citizens. Plainly, you really don't give a damn about the environment anyway, because if you did, you would be raising hell about scenes like these.
Keep it up, Raul. It's going to catch up with you in November.
