Jody Hice for Congress Campaign Sponsors Petition to Support Arizona
May 13, 2010
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Jody Hice, Republican candidate for Congress in Georgia's 7th District and nationally syndicated talk show host, today announced that his campaign is sponsoring a Defend Arizona Now petition drive.
"Why would a candidate for Congress in Georgia sponsor a petition supporting Arizona in its efforts to fight illegal immigration? I simply want to ask Americans, wherever they live, to encourage the people of Arizona, Governor Brewer, and Arizona legislators who have been under a firestorm of criticism and threats, including a possible lawsuit by the Obama administration. Frankly, I got tired of all the piling-on against Arizona by Pro Illegal Immigration, political leftists. I decided to give Americans who are tired of this non-sense a simple way to speak up and to be heard," Hice declared.
"My wife's great-great grandfather was the first president of Argentina, but I know that won't insulate me from charges that my support for Arizona is somehow anti-Hispanic or racist. I see people as individuals, not racial or ethnic groups. I find it truly disturbing that liberal interest groups resort to race-baiting and inciting violence to push their agenda," Hice declared.
"Governor Brewer and the Arizona legislators," according to Hice, "acted to protect the safety and security of their state because the federal government has been, I think, criminally negligent in not enforcing our laws and securing our borders."
The Defend Arizona Now petition is available at www.JodyHice.com and at www.DefendArizonaNow.com. It will also be posted as paid advertising on several conservative blogs and news websites.
