Demonizes immigrant children in attempt to save his political career
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Senator Steve Gallardo released the following statement in response to
today’s press conference by Superintendent
of Public Instruction John Huppenthal’s regarding unaccompanied children in
Arizona public schools:
"The lesson Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction gave today is that when you've lost all dignity, attack undocumented children. John Huppenthal's press conference today was a "Hail Mary" by a man desperate to save his political career by pandering to Republican extremists,” said Sen. Gallardo.
“This was nothing more than a pathetic attempt to score political points less than a week before his primary election. It was also shamelessly irresponsible fear mongering by the elected official entrusted with educating Arizona's children.”
