Rep. Giffords defends Endangered Species Act

UPDATE, 5/17: 77 US Reps. signed the letter.

WASHINGTON -- US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) will stand strong with Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and dozens of her colleagues in the House by signing on to a letter from lawmakers to Bush Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne in support of the Endangered Species Act.

The ESA is America's most important wildlife law. The Bush administration has been trying to skirt Congress and weaken the act behind closed doors.

Voters and nature thank you, Congresswoman Giffords.

Rep. Ed Pastor (D-AZ) was asked to sign on, but did not.

If Miss Gabby REALLY wanted to help protect our environment she'd be working to secure our southern border. Sorry, but that's the ugly truth.

The land and riparian areas in southern Pima, Santa Cruz, and Cochise counties have been trashed by those crossing illegally.

Do you think she'll help to stop that? I don't.

I wonder if you'll print this comment...
