Students Withdraw From Arizona Universities In Reaction To Immigration Law

"We have already begun to feel an impact from SB1070. The families of a number of out-of-state students (to date all of them honors students) have told us that they are changing their plans and will be sending their children to universities in other states. This should sadden anyone who cares about attracting the best and brightest students to Arizona."

Kobach, can sugar coat and attempt to humanize SB1070 which I find offensive. Police officers are human and a product of their environment and upbringing. Some of these Arizona officers were raised in a intolerant environment, hearing everyday that minorities are inferior, fueled by supervisors like Sheriff Arapio and unleashed upon the population. SB1070 widens the power of these unstable individuals.

As a Latina, I am grateful for all the support and activity I've seen on the net these past few days, decent thinking people, voicing their concerns with SB1070 and it's vagueness. At the same time I am appalled by the intolerance and racism, which was once whispered, has now become shouts not only in the streets but also being spewed openly by our politicians, in the twenty first century.

MALDEF Where are YOU !!!

Where is MALDEF, someone please wake these fools up, it's time to at least look busy.

"MALDEF is at the forefront of the battle to create and perserve the right of those in search of economic opportunity and personal freedom in America"....this is what they proudly post on there website....what a crock!

With several attorneys on staff, nice plush offices, several plush formal gatherings and ceremonies is what they do with the funding they get.

Meanwhile as Hispanics find themselves being stripped from their dignity and rights as human beings and in some cases their rights as American citizens. MALDEF is busy chasing their tail, with frivolous lawsuits that keep us barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen. Meanwhile over five thousand laws have been implemented without anyone representing our interest or to insure these laws are fair.

We have to many chiefs, claiming to represent the rights of Hispanics. Opportunist who do little to reach out to the communities they represent. kinda reminds me of that elitist attitude wall street has "it's to complicated, for you to understand", ya right! Por eso estamos como estamos.

"Profiling is the single greatest tool of law enforcement," Montandon continued. "We train officers, we train law enforcement, we train even those TSA people to look for people who look like bad guys, that's profiling, that's what we do, that's how we get it done...It's not a racial issue, it's a law enforcement issue."

Free Marcia Powell!: Chomsky on Fascism; VETO SB 1070.

Chomsky on Fascism; VETO SB 1070.

I will have more on yesterday's Capitol protest later; this seemed relevant, though. Chomsky describes the Tea Party contingent well. They were there yesterday - indistinguishable from JD supporters, hundreds of ranchers, and rabid anti-immigrant forces. Hundreds of them, all told. And maybe 25 of us, mostly youth of color. Our opposition has no foundation for their claims, so they just called us names ("losers", "idiots") and told us to "go back to Mexico" (I'm a direct descendant of the first Pilgrim Governor, actually, and carry Brigham Young's genes in my blood). Actually, I'm surprised I wasn't assaulted by one of the anti-immigrant people, because they were so agitated that a few of the women chased after me screaming when I went by them with DREAM Act fliers ("how about the 'Go Home Act'?"). Terrified people are easily exploited by men like Pearce and Thomas, and they turn into vicious, vindictive, brutal, entitled, racist, fascist beings. Just watch what they do to us next - to both the migrants and their sympathizers. After yesterday's event, I wouldn't be surprised if Joe Arpaio was elected as a Human Rights commissioner or something by AZ voters. As for us - I think we'll see lynching come back soon - or at least a surge in vigilantism/hate crime, police harassment, and abusive prosecutions against racial and political minorities in this state.Boy, was there a lot of hate and fear on the State House lawns yesterday, and it wasn't coming from us. We know the arc of the universe bends towards justice - our kind, not theirs. We will work with her timeline. The Pearce/JD/Tea Party/White Supremacist crowd are the ones who are so afraid of the world out here that they have to carry guns everywhere - even though we're really the ones (the poor) who get gunned down the most.

Could Orange County turn into Arizona? Protests against Governor Brewer’s signing of SB 1070 into law came close to home as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio visited Southern California over the weekend. As the invited guest of Orange County Sheriff hopeful Bill Hunt, the controversial Arizona lawman appeared at three campaign fundraising stops in Newport Beach, Santa Ana, and Costa Mesa.

This will be the last column I write about the Arizona Diamondbacks in the foreseeable future. For me, they do not exist. They will continue to not exist in my mind as long as the horribly named Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act remains law in Arizona. It's a law that has brought echoes of apartheid to the state.

Frommer May Boycott Arizona Over Guns - The Lede Blog - NYTimes.com

Mr. Frommer added that he was not speaking as a partisan:
I would feel as I do regardless of the political identity of the speaker whom these thugs attempted to intimidate. The continued tolerance of extremists carrying guns is a frightening development which strikes at the heart of the political process and endangers the ability to carry out a reasoned debate. Is there any responsible citizen of the United States who believes that people should carry guns to a public debate or speech? If Ronald Reagan were delivering a political talk in Phoenix, Arizona, would they have felt it was proper for protestors with guns to mill about outside the hall from which he would leave?

Chuck D: "By the Time I Get to Arizona" -- This Discrimination Must Stop

Chuck D: "By the Time I Get to Arizona" -- This Discrimination Must Stop

These actions must stop. We are issuing a call to action, urging fellow musicians, artists, athletes, performers, academics and production companies to refuse to work in Arizona until officials not only overturn this bill, but recognize the human rights of immigrants. This should include the NBA playoffs, revisiting the actions of the NFL in 1993, when they moved the Superbowl to Pasadena in protest against Arizona's refusal to recognize Dr. King. We all need to speak up in defense of our brothers and sisters being victimized in Arizona, because things are only getting worse. What they're doing to immigrants is appalling, but it will be even more damning if we remain silent.

First Convention Cancelation in Arizona

"Just minutes after Brewer signed 1070 into law on Friday, the American Immigration Lawyers' Association canceled their annual fall convention. They had planned to host the September event in Scottsdale.
"We can't in good conscious spend the organization's money in a state that's going to pursue these kinds of policies," said Regina Jeffries of the AILA.
Canceling the event could cost the organization close to $100,000"

SB1070

Since SB1070 passed, I've decided to spend all my time on the field, talking to my fellow Latinos. Making sure they know the implications of this new law. Even tho, I know it will be challenged, my rage is not at this racist act called SB1070. What pisses me off, is that it actually became law and the bigots that supported it's vagueness. But then that doesn't surprise me, history can back me up on that one.

Our broken border is a problem, but also an opportunity, Which is why it has never been resolved. Over 5,000 immigration bills in five years have been approved and to what end?...nada, my people keep coming. If they were serious about this issue, maybe, just maybe, if they punished those that hire a hard working illegal, they'd have a slighty different outcome. But then our politicians would no longer have that ace up their sleeve, when they need a little time or a distraction. In this case it's a power struggle.

But I'm more pissed at us as Latinos, so many of us and so divided. We see no one but ourselves, our family and our friends and where has that gotten us. I mean that with LOVE. What I'm trying to say, is that it's time we reach out to one another, patronize Latino merchants, push our children to learn. And stop watching channel 34, they just keep us stupid and the men horney.

Students fight SB1070 in Arizona

Llego la hora de decir basta. Tomemos el ejemplo de estos jóvenes, que con el poder de una educación, el Internet y un corazón latinos llego de compasión, se unan y se organicen, formando una voz que no se pueda ignorar. Con ellos tenemos una esperanza, que los hijos de estos valientes jóvenes, no sufran la discriminación y abusos que hemos soportado por muchas décadas.

Dejemos de ser complacientes, alejados y desconfiados. La unión es la fuerza, y unión, es precisamente lo que nos falta, y por esta falta de unión, hemos sufrido y le hemos heredado a nuestros hijos la misma mísera.

SB1070 is the last straw, let’s support these brave young voices. Let’s make an effort to boycott Arizona, buy among our own Hispanic merchants and let’s pack the churches on Sunday and reach out to our neighbors. Forget the novellas watch the news, participate in talk radio shows and call in. This is the least we old school folks can do, to support our young activist….Y que dios me los Bendiga !

Some truckers plan boycott over Arizona immigration law - Politics AP - MiamiHerald.com

Serrano plans to stop making the trip now that Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a stringent anti-illegal immigration bill into law, however, and he's recruited other truckers to join him.

Serrano, the independent owner-operator of a Los Angeles-based trucking company, said that about 70 drivers based in California and Arizona had agreed to stop moving loads into or out of Arizona in protest of the new law. He hopes to get 200 truckers on board for a five-day boycott that will start within 48 hours of the bill's signing.

PATRIOTAS O RACISTAS "El Tea Party"

Quien son los participantes del “Tea Party”, que representan Y que quieren?

Basta con ver las caras de los que atienden las protestas, para ver nuestros veteranos de piel blanca. Producto de una generación, cuando los tiempos eran menos complicados.
Estarán extrañando los tiempos de abundancia en oportunidades, un presidente blanco y comerciales con actores de piel aceptable.


Mucho ha cambiado; el Internet, un presidente de piel morena y una depresión económica que nos tiene reajustando nuestros cinturones, a todos.


Agitados con tanto cambio, confundidos con tanta información y manipulados por oportunistas. Por primera vez, toman a las calles el grupo conocido como “Tea Party”

No son Republicanos ni demócratas, no tienen una jerarquía definida. Pero el consenso que comparten, es una desconfianza hace al gobierno y un odio hace la presidencia. Racistas dice usted? Ellos lo ven diferente. Para “Los Teabaggers” es el orgullo Americano y la libertad de expresión.


Será el “Tea Party” un versión, del “Klan” o un grupo, representando una generación anhelando los tiempos de ayer, en fin. El aumento en popularidad y cobertura en los medios de la media. El “Tea Party” esta tomando fuerza. Pero juntamente con esa fuerza, las voces que se oyen, son con mas frecuencia llenas de odio y intolerancia.
