Russell Pearce, Arizona immigration law author, says Romney’s ‘policy is identical to mine’ The only State Senator in the history of Arizona ever to be recalled and the author of controversial state passed immigration law SB1070 has said that Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney;s immigration stance is identical to his own. “In an interview Tuesday night after a tea party dinner in Gilbert, Ariz., Pearce – who, in part due to his authorship of the SB 1070 law, late last year became the first Arizona legislator to be ousted from office in a recall election– described the former Massachusetts governor’s stand on illegal immigration as the same as his own. “His immigration policy is identical to mine,” Pearce said. “Attrition by enforcement. It’s identical to mine – enforce the laws. We have good laws, just enforce them.” A Romney spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment.

US, Mexican leaders trade warnings on gun violence  The flow of American assault rifles from the United States into Mexico was the subject of intense discussion during the Presidents discussion with Mexico President Felipe Calderon. “The explosion of drug-fueled violence along Mexico’s border with the United States could harm relations between the two nations, President Barack Obama said Monday; Mexico’s leader retorted that much of the problem of drugs and guns begins on the U.S. side of the line. In the thick of political contests in both the United States and Mexico, Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon traded unusually direct claims about the cause and effect of the drug violence that has consumed a swath of northeastern Mexico. They were cordial and complimentary to one another, but did not hide the degree of worry on both sides about a six-year spasm of violence that has killed more than 47,000 people. “It can have a deteriorating effect overall on the nature of our relationship,” Obama said. “And that’s something that we have to pay attention to.”

After Jobs Act, Case turns focus to immigration  America Online Co Founder Steve Case has indicated that he is going to work to pass some form of  immigration reform.  “Our work’s not done,” Case told Reuters in an interview, adding that he would still pause to celebrate the passage of the Jobs Act, intended to help start-up companies raise money and hold initial public offerings. Case lobbied heavily for the new law, milking his connections in the Washington area to build consensus around the legislation. Now that the Jobs Act is completed, making it easier for highly skilled immigrants to work in the United States is one of the most important issues facing the startup community, said Case, who runs Revolution LLC, a Washington-based venture investment firm. Revolution focuses on Internet plays and has backed companies ranging from deals company LivingSocial to short-term car-rental service Zipcar Inc.”
