Default Rep. Jim Kolbe(R-Ariz) on borders and immign

He is a congressman from Arizona's Eight district. His official website is

http://www.house.gov/kolbe/

This man is apparently the most well-informed elected official in congress today when it comes to border security and ... and ....mmmm IMMIGRATION.

This according to washingtonpost.com's editorial. See the editorial here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...123100764.html

He is apparently retiring in 2007 after serving his current term. Here is an extract from his article. (please read this article entirely to get to know what this guy is all about).

We rarely hear about the long and shameful wait of up to five years facing a person seeking to immigrate legally into the United States, or the legitimate cross-border business that finds roadblocks at every turn. Kolbe consistently pushed the government to treat the people caught in this bureaucratic wastelands with respect. To be sure, he was a strong advocate of tougher border enforcement, but he knew that enforcement should be only a single component of a much bigger strategy.

This man is honest, candid and outspoken and unpopular at home(arizona) because of that. But the keyword here is candid and well-informed. If the EB retrogression is presented properly to him, he could be an effective voice in the house.
Now, does anyone live in Arizona's 8th congressional district who can do something here. Arizona's 8th is most of Tucson, eastern Pima County, all of Cochise County and parts of Pinal and Santa Cruz Counties.

Is there a way to be able to speak to Rep. Jim Kolbe. At this time we are not sure who in our team is from his district in AZ. But we will find somebody for sure.

Guys,

I am from Tucson. But I should say I am not good in talking. I had earlier contacted Jim Kolbe's office for immigration matters and their staff's are helpful. Let me know in what way I can help.

Yes. We do have a volunteer in our pool from AZ. I have just sent a PM to you about him.
