Arizona Farmer Running For State AG to Crack Down on Border
Crisis 1

(Headline USAAn Arizona farmer said she is running to become the state’s next attorney general so she can help her state crack down on the border crisis.

Tiffany Shedd, a cotton farmer, lawyer, and mother, said she has been directly affected by the flood of illegal immigration over the southern border.

“Our neighbor was murdered,” she added. “My friend Rob Krentz was murdered. And it makes the news. A lot of us in the community are really, really frustrated because it feels like it’s a political issue at times, and nothing gets done, and you get forgotten.”

The Democrat Party’s refusal to crack down on the immigration crisis inspired her to get into politics, she said. She ran for Congress in 2018 and 2020, but lost narrowly each time. During her last run, former President Donald Trump endorsed her as a candidate who has “the right values.”

Shedd said she decided to give a political campaign one more try when she realized she could have more of an impact on immigration policy as the state’s attorney general.

“I don’t know that everyone else’s motivation is as strong as mine,” she said.

“I don’t think people don’t care about it, but it’s just really, really personal. This is going to stop. You’re ruining family’s lives and Arizonans lives,” Shedd said.
