CEOs representing dozens of business groups and employers signed a letter distributed midweek by the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce‘s Glen Hamer, declaring that passage of additional legislation dealing with the problems of illegal immigration would damage Arizona’s economy and tourism.
Arizona should instead push for federal action on immigration and border issues, according to the letter signed by heads of construction companies, hospitals, developers and service industries such as the Arizona’s Hotel and Lodging Associations and other illegal labor profiteers who rely on a low wage, exploitable work force.
And what a surprise to find Robert Delgado CEO of Cindy Hensley McCain’s mega-Anheuser-Busch wholesale beer distributing empire on the list. Cindy’s hubby has long supported amnesty, even partnering with liberal icon Ted Kennedy and Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl on authoring an abysmal creation known as “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.” The legislation, which raised the hackles of American citizens across the country, failed in 2007.
The Chamber’s letter includes this gem: “Arizona’s lawmakers and citizens are right to be concerned about illegal immigration. But we must acknowledge that when Arizona goes it alone on this issue, unintended consequences inevitably occur.”
Could those “unintended consequences” be the withholding of campaign donations for those who don’t go along to get along? Responding to the veiled threat, these gutless Republicans sacrificed Arizona’s citizens to the relentless illegal throng and their surrogates.

What have we come to when American businesses favor diminishing the sovereignty of the United States while supporting Balkanization by costly illegal aliens who invade our nation while displaying brazen disrespect for our laws?
