Taxpayers forced to fund left-wing local governments “outrageous”
Tempe, AZ – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kelli Ward endorsed Trump Administration proposals to stop funding for sanctuary cities that do not follow U.S. immigration law.
“It’s outrageous that taxpayers are forced to subsidize left-wing local governments who ignore our immigration laws and provide sanctuary to some of the most violent and dangerous criminals anywhere,” Ward said.
“Unfortunately, Senator Jeff Flake has joined with liberals and Democrats repeatedly to support illegal alien amnesty,” Ward said. “Perhaps he should run in the Democratic Primary where his liberal views are much more popular.
“Arizona needs a Senator who will stand up and fight against illegal immigration and will work to deport the violent criminals being given sanctuary by do-gooder liberal politicians more concerned about the so-called ‘rights’ of illegal aliens than the rights of American citizens,” Ward added.
Ward last year held Senator John McCain to just 51 percent of the vote and has announced her candidacy against Flake, considered one of the most vulnerable GOP incumbents in the nation.
