KELLY'S STATEMENT ON ARIZONA RULING
Today’s ruling is a step in the wrong direction. Federal inaction compelled Arizona to pass its immigration law, which I’ve supported from the start, and now it appears that judicial activism is preventing the state from dealing with this crisis head on. I have stood firm with Arizonans as they have taken action to address what has become a dangerous situation in their state, and I will continue to do so.
A lack of leadership in Washington has allowed our country’s illegal immigration problem to get so out of control. When I get to the Senate, I will act first to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration laws. Solving this problem is an urgent priority and one that I will pursue decisively and immediately.

As New Hampshire’s former Attorney General, Kelly understands the urgent need to stop the dangerous flow of illegal immigrants into our country. Arizona’s move to address this issue at the state level reflects a failure of leadership in Washington to solve this problem once and for all. With a wave of violent crimes in the state, Kelly believes Arizonans were fully justified in passing their law.
In the Senate, Kelly’s top immigration priority will be to secure our borders – no excuses. Simultaneously, she will work to ensure that existing immigration laws are enforced and is against amnesty. Kelly knows that Americans can solve any problem if they put their mind to it – and she will bring that results-oriented approach to this critical issue.
