Chris Bown, Republican candidate for the 97th State House seat in Missouri, has invited a well know, and somewhat controversial figure in the Arizona immigration issue to St Louis this weekend.
Chris Simcox, co-founder of the Minuteman Project will be here Saturday at the Two Hearts Banquet Center at 10 am.
Simcox is with the group with patrols the border and has advocated the construction of a wall on the Arizona border.
Brown says illegal immigration, while difficult to measure how bad it is here, is an economic issue because of how it relates to jobs.
Simcox told me, he believes that illegal immigration is an issue in interior states like Missouri, because he believes more illegal immigrants will seek out those states as laws on border states become tougher.
