·       The Rumor Mill Is Busy, busy, busy as to who is planning to run against AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham. The latest name to surface through the whisper mill is that of National Republican Committeewoman Sharon Geise.  And there has been shuttlebutt for at least a week or 10 days that Lori Urban, the former GOP fundraiser/ events director and current powerhouse for the Arizona Federation of Republican Women is mulling the opportunity to give Graham a run for his money.  With over 20 years of experience behind her, Urban has the connections, talent, knowledge and capabilities to do the job. Outgoing MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro’s name keeps coming up as a potential AZGOP candidate, as well.  Things are going to get interesting in the next few weeks.

·       Congressman Trent Franks, Chairman of the Constitution Subcommittee in the House of Representatives, spoke to BBC this morning about the President’s decision to bypass Congress and take executive action on immigration. According to Franks, “One of my greatest concerns here is that this President has demonstrated, not just tonight, but on many other occasions that he holds himself unconstrained by the constitution he swore to preserve and protect. And if other presidents take that tack then the constitution will essentially be vitiated and I suppose, we, as Americans will owe England an apology for that little unpleasantness back in Revolutionary War.”  Franks added that Obama has gone beyond the Constitution “on a regular basis, on a mass scale, when it was very easy for him to have simply allowed the new Congress to come into power. We've already passed in the Republican House Judiciary Committee, upon which I sit, five bills related to immigration. And there is no question in my mind that there would be a Republican immigration bill.” Asked about fears that Republicans, by insisting on upholding the law, would lose Latino votes, Franks said, “Well, you know, in this last election, we got over 40%, which is a higher percentage than they've gotten in a long time. It's kind of a false narrative; a lot of people who came to this country, my wife speaks a good part of Spanish, she's from the Philippines, I'm married to an immigrant, she came here legally,” adding that immigrants, “who came here legally and who have relatives that are trying to come here legally resent the notion that we would simply allow those who come here illegally to get in front of them. And to have first place in being able to take their place in American society. I would like very much to do what's necessary to fix our immigration system. It does have significant problems. But the reality is, if we are unable to control our borders then we simply, as Ronald Reagan mentioned, we cease to be a country at all. The bigger issue here is that this issue was playing out in Congress, there would have been legislation, and now I believe this President, sincerely, I believe that he has set back a real solution to this problem to this problem and divided Americans at each end, and this only demagogues the issue, which I'm afraid, genuinely, was his original intent.”

 

·       Today, Arizona Attorney General-Elect Mark Brnovich joined Republican AGs from across the country and issued the following joint statement: Along with many of our fellow Americans, Republican Attorneys General listened carefully to President Obama’s remarks about his intended, unilateral actions regarding immigration. We agree with the President, “people who live in this country should play by the rules.” The American people also believe the President should play by the rules and respect the rule of law. The President cannot ignore the American people, the states or an entire branch of government. Our country’s unique strength derives from its history of immigration. The values of immigrants are the values of our Republican Party, those of freedom, optimism, self-reliance, family and respect for the rule of law. We want our immigration laws to be enforced and our borders to be secure. We also want our country to be welcoming to those who want to join us on this American journey in the manner established by our laws.  As our states’ lead attorneys, however, we are committed to the rule of law and ensuring that we remain a nation of laws, enacted as prescribed by our Constitution. Each president takes an oath to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and … to the best of [his] Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” We expect President Obama to fulfill this oath. As attorneys general we will uphold our constitutional oath to take whatever actions may be appropriate to uphold the rule of law.
