US Senate Candidate Jim Deakin, a Republican, urges getting tough on illegal immigrants saying the failed immigration policies enacted in 1965 must be revoked. "Illegal is illegal", Mr. Deakin says.

He also is calling for limiting the size and scope of the federal government and urges Washington to keep its hands off health care. Mr. Deakin will face US Senator John McCain and former Congressman JD Hayworth in Arizona's August 24th primary.
