Could the politics in the state of Arizona get any crazier? Don’t even ask. Events keep twisting and turning into the ever more strange.
The Republican Party’s favored candidate for U.S Congressional District 3 is Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, an immigrant from Mexico. Though Mercer came here legally, having married an American, she is merciless in her attitude toward certain immigrants. In a recently uncovered interview from last year, Mercer complains about Middle Easterners, first because they look like Mexicans and South Americans, so can easily blend in, and then because “their only goal in life is to, to cause harm to the United States. So why do we want them here, either legally or illegally?”
That’s right. In her opinion, Middle Easterners don’t belong in the United States even if they come here legally. Obviously, Mercer isn’t expounding on illegal immigration. She’s just spewing forth her own prejudice.
