Arizona State leaders call on Rep. Stringer to resign over racial integration comments

PHOENIX, AZ — In a recent statement, leaders from the Arizona Republican party called on the resignation of Representative David Stringer, who said, “ Sixty percent of public school children in the state of Arizona today are minorities. That complicates racial integration because there aren’t enough white kids to go around.”

This was from his speech earlier this month when he spoke on the integration of Arizona public schools at the Yavapai County Republican Men’s Forum.

The clip showed stringer saying “immigration is politically destabilizing” and “immigration is an “existential threat to the United States.”

At this month’s Arizona Mexico Commission, Arizona governor Doug Ducey said, “I don’t think there is any place for that kind of commentary in the public square, and he’s basically disqualified himself to lead at the state level.”

Evelyn Casuga is the president of the Filipino American National Historic Society. She’s retired from serving as a town manager in Arizona and also served in corporate and nonprofit sectors.

“Here is Arizona in a lot of ways trying to promote itself as open for business and open to prosperity for all. Comments like that are really an antithesis to how we can get there. This is an economic development issue really if we look at it.”

Immigration and economic development are hot issues in Arizona, with its geographic location to the border and with upcoming elections. Casuga feels the future of Arizona’s economy needs diversity to be successful.

We reached out to Representative Stringer to comment, and have received no response. Stringer is set to run for re-election to the Arizona House in Legislative District 1.”

    Here is the problem, when you read articles written by amateur-liberal minded journalist, the result is that the real facts are skewed (e.g. the 16-minuted speech of Representative Stringer was dissected and manipulated into a 50-second speech, only to fit into the liberal-democrat agenda of tarnishing and ruining Representative Stringer’s reputation. Isn’t that the democrats are desperately trying to unseat him?

    According to Marie Maghinay-Belasco (Security Expert), there were desperate attempts to tarnish Representative Stringer’s reputation, knowing his strong pro-law enforcement stance.
