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.

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.

 

Original Gang Of 8 Bill

 

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.

Unite Arizona – Volunteer To End Racism


 

 

Volunteers Needed!

Unite Arizona

 

 

Unite Arizona is seeking volunteers who can help pass out ribbons at the All Star game Sunday, June 9th, 2011.

The organizers ask you to text “Unite AZ Volunteer”.  Please enter the date(s) you can join Unite Arizona!

On July 29th, 2010, the toughest anti-immigrant law in the history of the nation went into effect.  Called SB 1070, it was passed by conservatives who had gained control of the Arizona legislature.  In short, the law requires police to detain all person law enforcement suspects of being in the state “without documents”.  It was an invitation for racial profiling from the start!

 

 

While Judge Susan Bolton blocked some of the worst parts of the law, several key features still remained.  Others are in heated litigation which has cost Arizona millions of dollars to defend and forced a curb on government services including schools and health care.

 

 

SB 1070 is a law which on it’s face is evil and designed to bring about a division in various communities.  Shortly after the law was penned into law, boycotts were announced. Immediately, several states agreed to boycott Arizona, costing it millions of dollars in convention business.  The tax base has been significantly reduced and the real estate market in poorer Latino barrios went into a free fall.

Unfortunately, despite losing an ungodly amount of money for the business community, despite dramatic cut backs in government services, despite citizens protesting and going to jail, despite an out-of-touch legislature insists on full steam ahead with SB 1070.

 

 

Enter the All-Star Game.  The 82nd season is scheduled to be played in Arizona.  Even though immigrant’s rights groups pled with Bud Selig to move the game out of Arizona, Selig refused.  His refusal is a discredit to the many players of color, whom have made the game what it is today.  Selig’s decision is also a slap in the face for every citizen who opposes discriminating based upon national origin, race, sex, gender and financial status.

July 8th through the 12th is Allstar Fan Week.  Activists ask people to wear a white ribbon in solidarity with those who suffer under Arizona’s climate of hate.  It is a chance for every citizen to stand up and make a statement about an inclusive America while rejecting the notion this great nation is one for only of privileged.  They call these kinds of people “All Stars” because they have the guts to stand up for what is right.

 

 

Please come out and be part of history.  Please help pass out ribbons.  Those who wear the ribbons have an excellent opportunity to tell others why SB 1070 has hurt the immigrant community so badly and why it and laws like it, including the ugly laws passed in Georgia, are bad for our country!
