Rep. Russell Pearce: The Tribune again ignores the facts. Our citizens deserve better! The Tribune’s June 17 editorial talks about finding Mesa Police Chief George Gascón’s replacement, someone who can “dispel the myth that Mesa is a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.” But it is not a myth!

I am currently a United States citizen and have lived in Arizona my whole life. As illegal’s flood into Arizona, many rules, amendments, and regulations have been questioned and threatened. Not only are state leaders wanting to change the regulations of Arizona, they want to change the original 14th amendment, ratified on July 9, 1868. Our founding fathers wrote this national document to classify the United States as an honorable, prideful, and respectable free country. Why would we want to change that? The 14th amendment states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subjected to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Therefore we cannot take away a person’s citizenship based on their parent’s home country. A child born from two illegal aliens should still have the same rights and citizenship as any other normal American family. The rights of the 14th amendment declare, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the Unites States,” therefore, the urge to change original amendment would be unconstitutional and against everything the United States prides itself upon—the free nation.

But will a prideful Arpaio truly ignore an opportunity to review the last two years of his office’s immigration enforcement and refine his strategies to focus on what seems to work while stopping one practice that’s a horrible waste of tax dollars?
