When Arizona passed its highly controversial immigration bill — which among other provisions requires police to ask people about their legal status if they have reason to believe they might be illegal immigrants — into law last week, national Democrats hoped to turn the issue into a wedge for Republicans. And things seemed to be going their way at first, as high-profile conservatives like Florida Senate candidate Marco Rubiocame out against the Arizona law.
But this morning, polls showed a healthy approval rating bouncefor Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Ariz.) after she signed the immigration bill. And now at least one Republican gubernatorial candidate is hoping to follow Brewer’s lead.
The Colorado Independent reports:
On the Peter Boyles talk radio showWednesday morning, Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis said that if he were governor, he would seek to pass the same kind of harsh anti-illegal immigration laws recently passed in Arizona.
“I am going to wave the magic wand. You’re governor. What would you do?” Boyles asked McInnis.
“I would do something very similar [to what Gov. Jan Brewer did in Arizona],” said McInnis, lauding Brewer for signing the legislation. “Finally some governor stood up and said ‘We are stopping the retreat. No more retreat. Federal government if you are not going to do it, we are going to do it.’”
