Rosemary Jenks, Director of Government Relations for NumbersUSA, was one of the speakers at Saturday's rally in Phoenix, Ariz. The rally gave supporters of Arizona's new immigration enforcement law a chance to voice their support, and Rosemary read a statement from Members of Congress who also stand with Arizona lawmakers.

Rosemary read a statement prepared by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and 15 other Members of Congress, including Steve King (R-Iowa), Gregg Harper (R-Miss.), Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Gary Miller (R-Calif.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Gresham Barrett (R-S.C.), Jeff Miller (R-Fla.), Edward Royce (R-Calif.), Howard Coble (R-N.C.), Ted Poe (R-Texas), Elton Gallegly (R-Calif.), Paul Broun (R-Ga.), Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), and Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). The statement said:

Today, you have gathered here from all over the United States simply as Americans. You have come together, native-born and legal immigrant alike, to support the rule of law and the state of Arizona’s efforts to safeguard its communities. This is truly democracy at its best. We commend you.

America has a wonderful tradition of welcoming newcomers. We admit more than one million legal immigrants most every year. Given that we have the most generous immigration system in the world, Americans simply ask that our laws, our borders, and our sovereignty be respected and enforced. For no nation can survive without respect for its laws and without secure borders.

Arizona has been left in the lurch by the federal government’s inability -- even unwillingness -- to enforce our immigration laws. Arizona’s border with Mexico sees more illegal entries than any other state. Arizona’s communities have fallen prey to alien criminals. Arizona’s workers must compete against illegal labor for scarce jobs. In fact, there are almost as many illegal immigrants in the Arizona labor force as there are unemployed workers in the state.

Arizona has simply decided to do what the federal government has not – enforce America’s immigration laws. Believe us, we can use the help – we welcome it. Arizona provides a beacon of hope to people all over the country who have had enough of sanctuary cities and officials looking the other way.

We thank you for your dedication and your participation today. Be safe and continue to let your voices be heard.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez says that in Arizona, Mitt Romney said the state’s SB 1070 law should be model for nation

Quoted - Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Finally, we turned to NumbersUSA, an Arlington-Va.-based nonprofit group that opposes illegal immigration and advocates for limits on legal immigration, because it tracks what the presidential candidates say about immigration. The group’s president, Roy Beck, told us that Romney has expressed support for enacting "attrition by enforcement" policies on a national level such as requiring that businesses use E-Verify. Beck said Romney has not said specific provisions of SB 1070 should be taken as a model for federal immigration laws.

Fewer day laborers on Phx. streets

In the News - Thursday, August 12, 2010

Day laborers, mostly illegal immigrants from Mexico, also had proliferated in other areas of metropolitan Phoenix, including Guadalupe, west Phoenix and Fountain Hills.

But drive by any of those locations now, and only a handful of day laborers are left. And no longer do they rush up to vehicles en masse, waving their hands in a desperate bid to get hired. Now, they are more likely to keep a lower profile, leaning against a tree or sitting on a milk crate.

There are several reasons for the change. Arizona's slumping economy has dried up the demand for day laborers, who typically are hired for yard cleaning, moving, tree cutting, construction and other jobs. Many have left Arizona to look for work in other states, or they have given up and returned to Mexico.

Missouri sheriffs' group endorses immigration enforcement efforts by border states

In the News - Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Missouri sheriffs are giving their support to law officers in states along the Mexican border seeking to enforce immigration laws.

The Missouri Sheriffs' Association this week approved a resolution backing states that have approved their own legislation on immigration enforcement. The resolution specifically mentions Arizona, where part of a new law on the subject has been blocked by a federal judge.

The Missouri sheriffs group said Wednesday the resolution was approved by more than 100 members at its annual meeting, with no votes in opposition.
