Uh-oh Joe! Did somebody snooker you into endorsing one of those “wishywashy Republicans who favor half measures”
“We’ve got serious problems in this country. Liberal open border advocates are trying to fundamentally transform our nation. But it’s not just the liberals we have to guard against –wishywashy Republicans who favor half measures are part of the problem too!”
“In Congress, Wayne Pettigrew won’t back down. He’ll stand strong for a real crack down on illegal aliens and a truly secured border. He’ll fight against amnesty and taxpayer benefits for illegals.”
In this op-ed written by Wayne Pettigrew in 2006, Pettigrew says that those who “want to crack down on illegal immigration and send all of the illegal immigrants back to Mexico. . .haven’t got a clue”
You hear that Joe? Pettigrew says “You haven’t got a clue”
Pettigrew is quite enthusiastic about foreign workers, writing that,
“If I had it all to do over again, the first thing I would do before beginning construction is learn to speak Spanish.”
“I found the Hispanic workers to be more committed to their job and more reliable than their white counterparts”
He also says that Hispanic workers are harder workers than American workers and are more honest than and reliable their American counterparts.
“The individuals who framed my home, roofed my home, bricked my home and painted my home were all Hispanic.
Not only did they do a good job, they showed up for work and worked longer days than the non-Hispanic workers who worked on my home. They also, to my knowledge, never stole anything from the work site, which I cannot say for the non-Hispanic workers who participated in building our house.
To a large degree, I found the Hispanic workers to be more committed to their job and more reliable than their white counterparts”
Pettigrew believes that deportation of illegal immigrants will create a dirty hotel room crisis.
“If you want to ensure that your room will be clean at the next hotel that you check into then don’t favor the deportation of the only individuals willing to do the job that guarantees it will be.”
Pettigrew believes that illegal immigrants are vital to our economy and are not a drain on our welfare system.
Hispanics, whether here legally or not, contribute greatly to our local, state and national economies
Pettigrew says that they are actually propping up our retirement and particularly supports
“. . .efforts to extend work visas to those individuals who wish to work in the United States and particularly to those who wish to pursue the path to citizenship.”

How in the world did Wayne Pettigrew garner Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s endorsement?
Has anyone told Joe Arpaio that he might have been snookered on this endorsement?
