Arizona Rep. Calls for ‘Targeted’ Boycott of Own State, Runs Off When Asked About Stopping Drugs at the Border
(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), who represents a congressional district that includes 300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border, turned and walked away and did not answer when CNSNews.com asked him whether he was committed to sealing the border against the influx of illegal drugs.
Grijalva’s U.S. congressional district includes parts of the city of Tucson as well as the stretch of U.S.-Mexico border that runs from the Arizona-California line to Nogales, Ariz. His official Web site says the district includes a longer stretch of the border than any U.S. congressional district other than the 23rd in Texas.
Grijalva has called for a targeted boycott of his own state. “I have not called for a general ‘boycott’ of Arizona,” he said Wednesday, while answering online questions from readers of The Washington Post. “I have called for a targeted ban on conventions and conferences in the state for a limited time. The idea is to send a message, not grind down the state economy.”
Well, in fairness, “are you against illegal drugs coming across the border” is a loaded question to ask a man who’s position on the border issue ultimately protects some of the couriers (::cough:: potential Democrat voters ::cough::) at the expense of many legitimate Arizona businesses and residents who are victimized by border inaction on a daily basis.
Normally you have to watch Dateline NBC ambush-interviewing a suspected pedophile who’s in the process of finding out that the “13-year-old girl” he’d been sexting with is in fact Chris Hansen to see a guy run away from a camera this fast:
