·       Migrant-Theft-Charges-Dismissed-MCSO-Raids-Halted   Prosecutors have started dismissing identity-theft cases in light of a judge's preliminary injunction that bars Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery and others from enforcing state laws that make it a felony to use a stolen identity to obtain employment. But legal hurdles remain for the hundreds of immigrants arrested under the contested laws, with many facing additional charges or dealing with the ramifications of being an undocumented immigrant with a felony.

 

·       Conservative Review lauded Rep. Matt Salmon for joining eight other conservatives to form the House Freedom Caucus today. For months, Conservative Review has called for an alternative to the Republican Study Committee (RSC). Once the bastion of conservative leadership in the House of Representatives, the RSC has become a Trojan Horse for members to cloak their liberal votes in conservative trappings. The House Freedom Caucus marks a new beginning for conservative leadership in the House.

“Today, Rep. Salmon, with other committed and energetic conservatives, took a bold step in moving the Republican Party in a better direction. Over the past few years, as the RSC has become an ineffective check on House leadership, conservative influence has waned. Starting a truly conservative group will empower a critical mass of members to bind together and force House leaders in a direction more in line with the party platform and the needs of the American people instead of the interests of K Street. Arizonans should be proud of Salmon for starting a group that actually believe Republicans were elected to provide a bold contrast on key issues.  Working together, coupled with their counterparts in the Senate and in the conservative movement, the Freedom Caucus will have a lot of leverage to help establish a model of conservative governance headed into 2016,” said Senior Editor Daniel Horowitz.
