· Congressman David Schweikert: We've all heard the news stories about the hundreds and thousands of unaccompanied children that have crossed our borders on their own. Many are in a state of limbo sleeping on the floor or on cots in the detention centers in Southern Arizona. This news is an example of the unintended consequences of President Obama’s disregard for the rule of law. President Obama and his administration, through actions and words, have pushed their plan for amnesty of illegal immigrants, while unilaterally relaxing our border and interior enforcement. In the early years of the Unaccompanied Minor Program within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), less than 10,000 children were crossing the border illegally without any family members annually. Last year we saw over 30,000 children cross our borders unaccompanied and may see as many as 80,000 children placed in the hands of border patrol, and ultimately, HHS by the end of this fiscal year. If President Obama truly cared for these young children, he would work with Congress to fix our broken immigration system. Short term measures and unilateral action are not the solution to our illegal immigration crisis.
· Congressman Paul Gosar: So far this year I have successfully passed a dozen amendments that have scaled back excessive government spending and fought federal overreach. Every week I receive hundreds of emails and calls from Arizonans telling me about some of the bloated government horror stories that they read in the news. Even with a 17.5 Trillion Dollar National Debt, our government still cannot seem to recognize that we have a spending problem. These amendments are one way that we can fight back against an out of control government and I plan to continue listening to your comments and taking action.
· Congressman David Schweikert: Thanks to the combined efforts of scientists, doctors, advocates and the Valley Fever Congressional Task Force, the spore that causes Valley Fever has been added to the list of pathogens slated to benefit from being included under the Generating Antibiotic Incentives Now (GAIN) Act. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced the GAIN Act in July of 2012 to encourage the development of new antibacterial and antifungal drugs that would prevent serious or even life-threatening infections. Qualifying Valley Fever as an orphan disease under the GAIN Act will allow for expedited processing of medicinal and procedural advancements, cutting much of the FDA’s bureaucratic red tape. Because of this good news, Valley Fever has a chance to be given the full force of resources needed for scientists and doctors to develop a vaccine and cure for this disease. I look forward to seeing what the medical community here in Arizona will accomplish as a result of this good news.

· Candidate Yard Signs In Your Neighborhood Are Legal.

Details on the law are here (toward the end of the document) and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county. If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, please visit our Facebook page and tell your side of the story. AZGOP newsletter.

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· ATTENTION CANDIDATES: Please confine your statements to no more than 250 words. If they run longer, they will be edited.
· Secretary Of State Candidate Wil Cardon: With over 12,000 signatures collected, and 2000 more than any other campaign, our campaign recently qualified for the Republican ballot for Secretary of State. With just a little under three months until election day, the campaign is moving full speed ahead bringing our message of election integrity and voting efficiency to voters all across the state. In just the last week, I’ve traveled hundreds of miles across the state and at every campaign event, I hear the same thing over and over again - we must protect the integrity of our elections. I couldn’t agree more. Making sure that every voter who votes is an American citizen may seem like common sense, and it should be. But, believe it or not, the Obama administration does not want to require that. Obama and many of his liberal allies do not think that proof of citizenship is necessary. One can’t help but wonder why? Perhaps it’s the same reason why many on the left are so committed to doing whatever it takes to gain control of Secretary of State offices here in Arizona and across the country. They know that if they control these offices, they can weaken protections already in place so that proof of citizenship will be a thing of the past. I’m not going to let that happen in Arizona. I’m committed to protecting the integrity of our election process and the integrity of each and every vote cast in Arizona. I need your help to do it. We cannot afford to lose the Secretary of State office to a liberal who will do everything in their power to undermine Arizona’s voter protections. http://wilcardon.com/
