Which David Schweikert should we believe? Should we believe candidate David Schweikert, who said in 2010,"It's time for the federal government to finally do its job and secure Arizona's border with Mexico with a real fence and real enforcement. (davidschweikert.com)," or should we believe Congressman David Schweikert (R-District 5), who just voted to cut $600 million from border security and immigration enforcement in the Department of Homeland Security budget?

That vote represents nearly $1 billion less than President Obama's proposed $300 million increase. The GOP plan cuts funding for 250 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and threatens future funding for nearly 900 border patrol agents. What a hypocrite Schweikert is!

And this is just a month into office. I believe we can expect to see Schweikert continue his allegiance to the national GOP, while ignoring the wishes of his constituents in Arizona, both Republican and Democratic. I could be wrong, but I don't think so.
