Chris Simcox, president of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corporation, says Goldwater will make illegal immigration a top priority if he unseats Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano next year.
Goldwater, a Republican activist and former state employee, has pledged to lower taxes and get tough on illegal immigration.
Goldwater has criticized blamed Napolitano for not fully enacting Proposition 200, the voter-approved measure denies some welfare benefits to illegal immigrants
Napolitano spokeswoman Jeanine L'Ecuyer called the claim about Proposition 200 "nonsense."
