One of the controversies surrounding newly-retired Representative and illegal immigration supporter Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) was his opposition to fixed checkpoints away from the border, and he wrote legislation requiring that they be moved frequently.
Now that he's gone, Border Patrol chief David Aguilar has stopped moving the checkpoints and, at a townhall meeting in Sahuarita (south of Tucson) yesterday, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords endorsed the decision (link).
That's the good news, and all that's contained in the report. I'd imagine they also discussed the recent amnesty proposals, but that's not mentioned. I'd imagine they also took questions from the audience, and those likewise aren't mentioned. I posted a notice of this meeting here, but apparently not enough people saw it, or those that did decided not to go. Hopefully at a future meeting "Gabby" will be asked some tough questions about her positions on these issues, specifically her co-sponsorship of the Gutierrez-Flake amnesty scheme.
