Stonegarden Statement

David Eppihimer, Chairman, Pima GOP, to the Pima County Board of Supervisors

Supervisors, Chairman Elias, I am David Eppihimer, a resident and taxpayer in Pima County and Chairman of the Pima County Republican Party.  I speak for the Party today.

We have a documented crisis on the border as finally reported by mainstream news outlets of all types.  The resulting situation reminds me of a line from the Jaycee creed…”we are a country of laws, not of men”.  The first time I heard this, I didn’t get it. I did soon enough. We are moving toward a country of people’s feelings & opinions, not of laws.  The solution is simple, follow the law.

I urge this Board to disregard a vocal but tiny minority of the fringe of the left that advocates for open boarders.  It has been said that you don’t have a country if you don’t have borders.

Do the right thing for Pima County public safety…accept the funding!

UPDATE: The Board voted 3-2 to accept the funding
