They are having a vigil for immigration reform at ground zero, Arizona.  That is the heart of SB 1070, and the movement Russell Pearce fostered to make immigrants Personas Non Grata in the U.S.

 

 

Brave people responded to the fight against SB 1070, including Erika Andiola, Petra Falcon, Promise Arizona and immigrant families from across the desertscape.  I was there.  I remember.  People were shattered.  Here was a community which helped build out great country facing an onslaught of criticism and veiled racism in the supposed name of national security.

Rather than hating the people who were engendering hate against the immigrant community, our leaders responded with love.  They stood up for what is right, but that is not to say they struck back.  Standing up to a bully without hating him speaks to the heart and character of the people who now were forced to wage a peaceful war defending basic dignity and humanity.

Rather than hating the people who were engendering hate against the immigrant community, our leaders responded with love.  They stood up for what is right, but that is not to say they struck back.  Standing up to a bully without hating him speaks to the heart and character of the people who now were forced to wage a peaceful war defending basic dignity and humanity.

 

Erika Andiola

 

On July 4th, 2013, most Americans will celebrate the nation’s independence from a country who ruled from across the sea, Great Briton.  The country imposed taxes but gave the people living in America little say in how those taxes were applied.  The country imposed harsh treatment against anyone who spoke out against it.  The country dictated how life would be for the population in America while exploiting her workforce and her assets.  On July 2nd, a declaration was made, that we, the people of the United States of America, must live our free and independent lives.  On July 4th, the declaration was signed.

The hard lessons to be learned during the next 200 years would cause bitter racial divisions and a civil war.  We learned we cannot live as a free nation while enslaving some.  We cannot impose harsh treatment on one class of people yet forgive all others similarly situated.  We must give all people who live under free skies an opportunity to participate, and an opportunity to be heard.  We must elect people to represent all of our communities and not just those blessed or cursed with privelege.  In a sense, that is what immigration reform is all about.

 






On July 3rd, 2013, brave people will ask Arizona Representative Matt Salmon to listen to immigrant voices as he must listen to all other voices in the 5th Congressional District in Arizona.

Salmon says”The desire to make a better life for oneself and one’s family is certainly admirable, but we should not reward those who have broken our laws at the expense of the millions of immigrants who have played by the rules and are patiently waiting their turn in line.  Simply put, those in our country illegally should not have a unique path to citizenship not available to those who have chose to abide by our laws and attempt to emigrate legally.”

 

 

Let us not forget, the first violation of the laws of America occurred with the taking of the land from the American Indians.  To stand by laws which are convenient is the epitome of hypocrisy.

 

The immigration proposal drafted by the gang of eight, including four hard line Republicans like Arizona’s John McCain, does not grant amnesty to anyone.  Rather, it requires an arduous path over 13 years for seven out ten immigrants.  Three out of ten immigrants won’t qualify and will face the wrath of ICE once the law goes into effect.  It requires the payment of back taxes, future taxes and is the only law in the history of America which imposes the requirement of employment in order to gain status.  At the same time, while collecting the taxes of these hard working people, the law will exclude them from most governmental services for at least a decade.  That is not amnesty.

 

 

At the same time, the law fails in it’s primary goal, to identify all people living in America, by excluding from recourse those immigrants who America, for security reasons, we need to identify the most.  Adding a ‘one strike and you are out’ rule for the immigrants who don’t qualify for the first proposal would identify all people.

For these reasons, we encourage Representative Salmon to vote for immigration reform that is inclusive.  We ask him to cease creating a second class of people, using some of the most brilliant minds and spirits as the foundation for that second class.  Work visas alone leave people paying taxes with no hope of ever having a say in their government or of reaping the benefits of their contributions to the community.  That is worse than no amnesty, it is a form of indentured slavery.  Most of us learned about the evils of slavery long ago.

Come be part of freedom on July 3rd.  Come stand by brave people who are excited about continuing their efforts to make America great.  Come ask Representative Salmon to vote for rational immigration reform that grants people an equal right to government after 10 years.  The address is 207 North Gilbert Road Suite 209 Gilbert, AZ 8523.

 

Amigos, acompanenos en esta vigilia para pedirle al Representante Salmon de Mesa que apoye a nuestras familias inmigrantes. Nos quedaremo alli asta que Salmon se reuna con nosotros y nos asegure que tenemos su apoyo.
