Border security panel to hold 1st meeting

 .

A special committee of the Arizona Legislature devoted to examining security along the state’s border with Mexico will hold its first meeting Wednesday.

The Joint Border Security Advisory Committee was created a week after the state passed an immigration enforcement law last year that was intended to draw local police deeper into the fight against illegal immigration.

The panel was established by a follow-up proposal that tweaked the enforcement law.

Republican Sen. Al Melvin of Tucson, one of the committee’s two chairmen, says he would like the panel to create a website where the public can check on the status of border security.

The committee consists of six Republican lawmakers, a lobbyist for cattlemen, the head of the Arizona National Guard and the leaders of four state agencies.

  1. So, is this committee going to have border expert extroidanaire Glenn Spencer testify before the group, or are they going to knuckle under to former push cart vendor Steve Gallardo and the filth at the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law Center?

  2. YES! Border expert Glenn Spencer – who is steeped in the facts – not the likes of Steve Gallardo should be the lead expert on this special committee.
