Republican leaders in the Senate and House are allowing Arizona’s people and economy to suffer by refusing to hear two bills that would repeal SB 1070, a Democratic state lawmaker said Thursday.

Last June, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected most of the law’s provisions but upheld giving local police the authority to check the immigration status of some suspects.

Most, Dylan? I wouldn’t call it “most”. If you look at the numbers, then yeah, “most” MIGHT be an appropriate word. But if you put weight on each item, or assigned some sort of point system to each provision, then it would be clear that the “meatiest” parts (the best word I can think of right now) were left in.

“Why not have a fair hearing?” Gallardo said. “What are we afraid of? Let’s talk about the facts on SB 1070 and the impact it has had on the economy.”

Ummm…we’ve already been through that process, and time wise it took FAR longer than it should have. So, it’s over. Gallardo is the one embarrassing the state by not letting this go.

What would the “AZ Dems” think if Romney were still laying claim to the White House? Yeah, that’s how they’re looking right now.
