Monday, February 16, 2015 - PRESIDENTS DAY
· Federal-Judge-Temporarily-Blocks-Obama-Immigration-Executive-Action A federal judge has granted a request by 26 states to temporarily block President Obama's executive action on illegal immigration, allowing a lawsuit aimed at permanently stopping the orders to make its way through the courts.
· Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day commemorating Presidents Day: “On Presidents Day, we honor the birthday of our first president, George Washington, and we celebrate the birthday of our first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln,” said Priebus. “Their steady leadership has been a shining example for their successors to follow. We remember Washington for his selflessness and sacrifice at the birth of our nation. We pay tribute to Lincoln for saving our United States. During this holiday, we also remember all those who have served as president, guiding our country through times of war and times of peace, times of prosperity and times of economic difficulty. Another presidential election is already upon us, and the American people will be looking for a leader who respects the president’s role under our Constitution, who offers fresh ideas for our country, and who respects the will of the people. I’m confident our eventual Republican nominee will be exactly that sort of leader.”
“February is also the birth month of President Ronald Reagan, and we’ve celebrated his birthday as well,” said Day. “His leadership at home and abroad has earned him a special place in our history.As we remember all our presidents, it is my prayer that future Commanders-in-Chief will turn to the examples set by Washington and Lincoln for inspiration and guidance.”

· The Pima County Board of Supervisors will declare Pima County a Zero Tolerance Human Trafficking zone at the9 am., Feb 17 Board meeting. Supervisor Ally Miller, District 1, submitted the item to the Clerk of the Board’s office following her attendance at a Human Trafficking Forum led by Congresswoman Martha McSally. The forum, held a few weeks ago, was an event for local leaders to discuss the growing issue of Human Trafficking in Southern Arizona. McSally, who has been vocal about the issue and is supporting current Human Trafficking legislation in Congress, is scheduled to attend the Tuesday meeting and join Miller, law enforcement, and various non-profit members to show a united front on the importance of addressing this increasing problem in Southern Arizona.
“I was grateful that Congresswoman McSally contacted me to be a part of her roundtable discussion which also included State Representative Victoria Steele and Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik. The FBI has stated that Sex Trafficking is the fastest-growing business of organized crime and here in Southern Arizona we lack significant resources to identify and assist victims and we need to do more to prevent trafficking from occurring”. Miller went on to say, “That starts with educating the public, schools and law enforcement and with the Congresswoman bringing all of us to the table to discuss this issue, we can work on addressing this at the local, State and Federal levels.”
