QCRC Live Meeting Friday, February 19th

Quail Creek Republican Club
Friday, February 19, 2021 Meeting

9:00 AM
Madera Clubhouse Ballroom

Are you concerned about what the Biden administration is doing to undermine everything Trump accomplished for border security and immigration?  Illegals from Central America are organizing caravans to our southern border right now!
You don’t want to miss the next meeting of the Quail Creek Republican Club on Friday, February 19 at 9:00 AM in the Madera Ballroom.  Art Del Cueto, President of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 will be our featured speaker.  Art will give us the inside skinny on what’s happening at our southern border.

But remember, QC limits attendance is limited to no more than 50 at the meeting.  You must have a confirmed reservation to attend this meeting!  Send your RSVP without delay directly to Pat Colburn (QCRC Membership Chair), at patcolburn5@hotmail.com to secure your seat.  
Hope to see you at this informative and entertaining meeting.

Art Del Cueto
Vice President, National Border Patrol Council

Art has been with the US Border Patrol since 2003.  Prior to joining the Patrol, he worked at a high custody level prison for the state of Arizona.  Art grew up in Douglas, Arizona, a city along the US/Mexico border.  He learned early of the challenges border communities face and has also seen firsthand the growing dangers of international drug cartels. 

In 2012, Art was elected President of NBPC Local 2544 by the membership.  Local 2544 is the largest local in National Border Patrol Council with over 4500 members.  As a representative of the National Border Patrol Council, Art serves as the national spokesperson.  Art expresses the many concerns of the agents he represents as well as the issues with Border Security.  He has appeared on most major news shows, including Fox News, CNN, Al Jazeera and HBO VICE, and on countless radio shows.  In addition, Art is the host of his own show, “The Green Line”, broadcast on KNST Tucson and available through IHeartRadio.

Art is one the most knowledgeable people regarding Arizona border politics, history and the cultural connections shared between sister cities separated by a border.  He will provide fact-filled and compelling information, with just the right amount of humor, as he describes the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border.  It will be especially informative in light of the recent actions by the new administration.

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for your support of our Trump-Pence sign promotion.  More than 600 of you now have Trump signs in your yard to show your support of our President and Vice President for their reelection and our countries prosperity for the next four years.  Your signs have blanketed the entire community and show your commitment to our great country and the conservative approach to government, business, support of Judeo-Christian beliefs and other very important issues.  Thanks for your commitment and your stepping up to show these values to your neighbors and others driving down your street.

Our goal is to have all of these in yards, on fences, on golf carts/cars by October 1.  Call or email Dave Roy at 520-829-6593 or email reelbigfishii@aol.com.  This will offer additional exposure for the final 30 days of the campaign.
