Joe Garcia criticizes "harmful" Az immigration law; questions where David Rivera is

Democrat Joe Garcia calls out his potential Republican rival David Rivera not taking a position "on the important issues of immigration and the harmful law that his fellow Republicans in Arizona have passed.

"Immigration reform is a serious issue that calls for immediate action," Garcia said. "We need our elected officials to show leadership, not hide and remain silent when difficult problems and issues arise. I have been proud to stand with supporters of immigration reform, march with them and let my position be known on a difficult issue. I am disappointed Rivera has chosen to be silent on immigration reform."
