Lead Sponsor Of Anti-Immigrant Arizona Law Joins The Obama Impeachment Club

Former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce (R-AZ) reacted to Monday’s decision gutting much of the harsh immigration bill he sponsored by calling for President Obama’s impeachment. In an interview about the decision with the subscription-only Yellow Sheet Report, Pearce called the Obama Administration’s recently announced immigration policies an “impeachable offense.” Pearce joins fellow Arizonan U.S. Sen. John Kyl (R) in suggesting impeachment because he disagrees with President Obama on immigration, although Kyl’s statement was much more measured. Pearce, for his part, has an unusual amount of expertise in what it is like to be removed from office midterm. He was recalled from his seat in the Arizona Senate last November.
