LD 13 PCs Marsha Hill and John Powelson: We were in Washington, DC last week, thanks to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (F.A.I.R.), to lobby Senators from the Democrat and Republican parties to protect American citizens and legal immigrants from criminal aliens by passing "Kate’s Law” (HR3004) and "No Sanctuary for Criminal Aliens Act” (HR3003). The main focus of these laws is to discourage re-entry, to the USA, by aliens who have been convicted of major or violent crimes by adding sentence enhancement for being caught back here after deportation or subsequent arrest for new crimes.We assumed, wrongly, that this would be an easy sell. Why would anyone want to allow our citizens or law abiding immigrants to be victims of crime by going easy on the criminal aliens? But we misjudged these Senators by a bunch! Neither Sen John McCain nor Sen Jeff Flake’s staff could be bothered to make an appointment with us, even with several week’s notice. Fortunately, we spoke with many others from different states and our voices were heard!

Congratulations to Arizona-Corporation-Commission-Doug-Little on his appointment to US Energy Department. “... that is something you can't say no to."

RNC Chairwoman McDaniel: President Trump Is Leading On Tax Reform The base is looking at the president and saying this is someone leading, he's pushing the ball forward, this is something that he campaigned on. They want this to get done. Obviously the focus is on the middle class. We need to kick start this economy, we also need to bring jobs and wages up and give people more income to take home to their families.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is inviting recreational shooters to celebrate National Hunting and Fishing Day on Sept. 23 at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility. Arizona hunters and anglers who show their valid hunting or fishing license will receive an $8 discount for unlimited shooting (rifle only) from noon to 5 pm at the benchrest range, where steel targets will be placed at intervals up to 300 yards. Those who don’t have a valid hunting or fishing license still are invited to come out and participate at the regular price ($15). All skill levels are welcome. There will be range safety officers available to assist all shooters. As a reminder, eye and ear protection is required and can be purchased at the shooting sports center.

President Trump May Make a HUGE Change to Refugee Law – The First of Its Kind in Nearly 30 Years! President Trump has been a strong critic of America’s current immigration system, which he, and many of his supporters, see as far too relaxed. President Trump has been particularly critical of the refugee system and has famously attempted to implement a temporary refugee ban on 6 high-risk countries. The Supreme Court will hear arguments over the legality of the ban in October. But until then, senior Trump officials have been advising the president to simply lower the total quota for refugees.

McConnell Related PAC Airs Undeniably Phony Information About Judge Roy Moore Alabama’s current senate race is truly no different, as Judge Roy Moore is attempting to similarly take on the establishment as an outsider candidate.  Of course, this course of action has been met with incredible resistance from the Washington elite, with Mitch McConnell leading the opposition to Moore’s campaign.  This week, a PAC affiliated with McConnell took to the airwaves to attack Roy Moore once again, and fact checkers are tearing the advertisement to shreds .
