Republican Connie Mack talks to police about freedom

September 28, 2010 § Leave a comment

MARCO ISLAND — Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fort Myers) knows where many avid supporters reside. It was Mack’s fourth speaking engagement with the Marco Island Police Foundation as he discussed immigration, health care and an extension of tax cuts on Tuesday. If there was a theme to the discussion, it would have been one of freedom. Mack, seeking reelection to District 14, spoke to approximately 100 attendees at the Luncheon with the Chief held at CJ’s on the Bay with police officers and their supports, including City Council members and Collier County Commissioner Donna Fiala. Mack didn’t shy away from tough questions or controversial topics, including his thoughts on Arizona’s immigration law. The bill, he said, pits one group of Americans against another. “You can be an American citizen in Arizona and not look like me and not look like most of the people in this room and be stopped and asked for your papers,” Mack said. “Florida will get an immigration bill, but it won’t single out a group because they look different.” His stance isn’t to get votes, he said. “Less than 2 percent of my congressional district is minority … so for me, this is about freedom.”
