(AP) The main champion of Arizona laws cracking down on illegal immigration won’t be in Washington on Wednesday for the unveiling of proposed legislation to deny automatic citizenship to children of illegal immigrants. Arizona Senate spokesman Mike Philipsen says incoming Senate President Russell Pearce supports the legislation but has canceled his plans to attend the Washington news conference scheduled by legislators from Arizona and other states on their coordinated proposal.
Philipsen says Pearce is staying home to participate in state budget meetings and to prepare for the regular session starting Monday. Philipsen also cities the time required for the cross-country trip.

(NOTE: The US Supreme Court said this type of law was impermissible in the 1800s. But why not try again in the 21st century? It couldn’t hurt, right? If it had passed before, we would be down at least one Olympic gold medal. See https://immigrationlitigation.wordpress.com/2009/11/04/henry-cejudo/ )
