Senator Russell Pearce, Arizona Senate President
Senator Pearce is one of 13 children. His Wife, LuAnne is one of 7 children. They have 13 grandchildren. He is a fifth generation Arizonan on both sides of his family. His Great, Great Grandfather built Pearce Ferry on Mead Lake at the other end of the lake from Lee's Ferry. His Grandfather James Pearce founded Taylor Arizona in the 1860's. His Great Uncle Joe Pearce was one of the original Arizona Rangers serving from 1901 to 1909 when they were disbanded and he was the last one to die. On his Mother's side was is Great, Great Grandfather Lorenzo Hill Hatch, who settled in Northern Arizona in the 1860’s also.
He has two sons in law enforcement, Colten with Gilbert PD and Sean with the Sheriff’s Officer:
Arizona’s, and the nation’s, most outspoken advocate for stopping the illegal invasion, securing our borders and enforcing our laws.
Senator sponsored the controversial SB 1070 on illegal immigration.
Chief Deputy for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office for 23 years.
Director of Arizona’s Motor Vehicle Division
The first North Mesa Justice of the Peace
Director of the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
Recognized by the Goldwater Institute as the number one legislator who proved to be the strongest ally against government encroachment on liberty.
He was also recognized as the number one legislator, “Hero of the Taxpayer”
In 2004 he was the architect of The Citizen’s Initiative known as Proposition 200, also known as Protect Arizona NOW (Arizona's Citizens and Taxpayers Protection Act), to require:
1. Proof of citizenship to register to vote. The U.S. Constitution established more than 200 years ago that only citizens may vote. The initiative requires everyone equally to prove eligibility. The Help America Vote Act of 2002 requires states to strengthen the integrity of their voter rolls, as does Title 7, Section 12 of the Arizona Constitution.
2. Photo I.D. when voting. Photo I.D. Is required to cash a check, apply for welfare, sign a lease, or get a rental card at a video store. Governor Napolitano vetoed the photo I.D. bill, stating it was illegal. Yet 11 states already have laws requiring I.D. when voting. Some laws have been on the books for decades.
Proof of eligibility to receive non-federal mandated public benefits. This is already on the books. The initiative would require everyone to provide proof of eligibility equally. The Urban Institute studied this extensively in 1994, the University of Arizona in 2001, and estimated such costs to vary widely in the tens of millions of dollars
Arizona’s Fair and Legal Employment Act; Arizona’s Employer Sanctions legislation, the toughest worksite enforcement bill in the nation to stop illegal employers and to protect jobs for Arizonans.
Proposition 100 in 2006, a Constitutional Amendment to refuse bond to any illegal alien who commits a serious crime in Arizona (passed by 78%).
Proposition 102 to require that an illegal alien who sues an American citizen cannot receive ANY punitive damages (passed by 75%).
Prop. 103 making English the Official Language of Arizona (passed by 72%).
