Russell Pearce has dedicated his life to public service, first as a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff who was shot in the line of duty, then as a North Mesa Justice of the Peace, Director of the Motor Vehicle Division, and later as a member of the Arizona legislature. Throughout his service, he has shared and promoted the values of Arizona and America: freedom, excellent education, parental rights, school choice, economic growth, job creation, balanced budgets, less government intrusion, strong law enforcement, and secure borders.
He has said many times, “We must have the courage and the fortitude to enforce, with compassion but without apology, the laws that protect the integrity of our borders and the rights of our lawful citizens.
The following explains why the Obama Administration and the Obama Justice Department have declared war on Arizona: While an Arizona Senator, Russell Pearce led the successful battle against illegal immigration on the state, local and national level, most notably by authoring many successful propositions, including Employer Sanctions in 2007 and Arizona’s SB 1070. It has made a difference here and nationally.
Statement by Phoenix Law Enforcement Association: "Since SB1070, Phoenix has experienced a 30-year low crime rate. 600 police vacancies, budget cuts, and old policing strategies didn’t bring about these falling crime rates. SB1070 did. When hard-working rank-and-file Phoenix Police Officers were given access to the tool of SB1070, the deterrence factor this legislation brought about was clearly instrumental in our unprecedented drop in crime. And all of this without a single civil rights, racial profiling, or biased policing complaint. To ignore the positive impact of SB1070 in the City of Phoenix is to ignore the huge elephant in the middle of the room."
