A recent trip to Arizona gives one candidate for state representative in district 55 an intimate look into several problems affecting Colorado as well.
Republican candidate Bob Caskey made two important stops in Arizona, one being in Sasabee where Caskey got a first–hand look at the illegal immigration problem. The candidate spoke with residents and members of the Minuteman Militia. He says aside from illegal immigrants costing the education system in Colorado more than 500 million dollars a year, there are other areas being impacted as well.
While in Arizona, Caskey also stopped off at a prison in Mericopa County which has become one of the most cost–effective prisons in the country. Caskey says the prison, dubbed tent city, is a perfect example of how the state could further cut costs.
