FLASHBACK: Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly Refuses to Shake Border Patrol Agent’s Hand: “You’re One of Them”

Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly apparently refused to shake the hand of a border patrol agent during an event in Tucson on Monday, telling the man that “you’re one of them.”

Art Del Cueto, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, recounted the concerning incident during an interview with KNST on Thursday. The former astronaut refused to shake Cueto’s hand, walking away in an act of disrespect to the Border Patrol union official.

Cueto recounted approaching Kelly at the Tucson parade, introducing himself to Kelly. The Democrat apparently recognized him, and after telling him vaguely that “you’re one of them,” he stiffed Cueto and simply walked away.
