Joe Cobb

I am running for Congress this year to change America’s immigration laws. Our retiring congressman, Ed Pastor, has not done anything I can detect to solve this problem, which centrally affects Arizona’s 7th District.

We need to repeal the immigration quota system for workers who want to come to Arizona to get jobs and produce more services, more goods, and more prosperity for all of us.

The only thing “illegal” about “illegal immigration” is that it violates the racist quota system. Read my essay, “Surely, this is a victimless crime!” (Actually, it is not a crime – not even a misdemeanor! It is a civil violation of Federal immigration laws.)

America needs more young workers, and the quota system that limits them from coming here to work is simply stupid, irrational, and racist. It is hurting Arizona’s economy. The immigration crackdown by our state Legislature has also hurt Arizona’s economy.

I am a professional economist. I used to be a college professor teaching economics. There is a clear cause-and-effect between Arizona’s economic slump in 2008 and the employer sanctions our Legislature imposed in 2009. It is still costing us economic growth and tax revenue, which forced our State into a large budget deficit. The governor and legislature are being forced into a false choice between tax increases or spending cuts – because of badly motivated political rhetoric against Latinos.

  7. Hello, Mr. Cobb,

    I am a journalism student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, and I am writing an article which will potentially be picked up by The Arizona Republic. I am writing about the approaches that you and Mr. Gallego have in regards to homelessness in downtown Phoenix. I would love to schedule a phone interview with you in the next week. Please email me to arrange a time- any contact would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!
