Vigil For Immigration Reform pg 2

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.

Author Of SB 1070, Russell Pearce, Looks For New Work

sb-1070, arizona-sheriff, pearce-recall, randy-parraz



Republican Senate President Russell Pearce is soon to be unemployed after he was recalled in the first ever successful effort in the state of Arizona on Tuesday night, November 8th, 2011. Pearce’s passing represents a loud declaration on the part of voters that Americans are tired of the hate and division Pearce used to gain power.

 

Pearce was the architect of SB 1070, the strongest anti-immigrant legislation passed in the history of the nation at the time. Subsequently, Georgia and Alabama have enacted laws which are more restrictive and punitive. Under SB 1070, the police were required to detain any person they suspected of being in the country “without papers”. Considering Arizona’s proximity to the border, the law was a shoe-in for racial profiling and discrimination against those of Latino descent and those who looked Latino.

 

Judge Susan Bolton eventually ruled portions of the law as unconstitutional. However, it was too little, too late. National boycotts were already taking their toll on Arizona businesses. The state lost an estimated 150 million dollars in the first few months following the enactment of the law, and billions over time.

 

With the state reeling for funds, and having to cut police, school teachers and even medical benefits, Pearce appeared in the Senate asking for even stricter laws against undocumented workers. Though Pearce knew he was setting the state up for more law suits, on top of large sums being spent to defend SB 1070, Pearce was unconcerned. The business community convinced the Senate to defeat Pearce’s new round of anti-immigrant proposals, having learned the hard way that discriminating against the next generation of Americans was costing a lot of money.

 

 

No one thought Pearce could be defeated. As a result, when Randy Parraz, a local activist, launched a recall effort, Pearce sneered. But secretly, the senate president who lacked couth and manners when dealing with Dream Students, the children of of undocumented workers, must have been worried. Pearce raised an unprecedented $240,000 to make sure he could keep calling the shots in Arizona. National anti-immigrants raced to his aid. Despite outspending the competition nearly five dollars to every one, Pearce was voted out of office by an overwhelming margin.

 

 

The end of this reign of terror against the immigrant community is a harbinger of things to come for those who want to pick on the least powerful. While other states have passed tough anti-immigrant laws, including Utah, a word to the wise can be had. Quit picking on immigrants. Start looking for solutions. The nation is exhausted from the division these kinds of politics entail.

 

Remaining bitter and defiant to the end, Pearce said he would do nothing different had he to do it all over again.  Sadly, the families that lost transplant victims because Arizona could not fund their medical care, likely regret ever hearing of Russell Pearce.  Republican Jerry Lewis beat Pearce saying it was time to put decisive politics to rest.

Russel Pearce and his SB 1070 has caused lasting harm to the nation’s newest generation of immigrants.  Just like a child who is sexually molested, the immigrant community may spend a liftime working through the damage.  It is a necessary process to heal, to forgive, to move ahead.

Russell Pearce Asked To Resign, Has Been Recalled, By By SB 1070!

Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce

Asked To Resign

 

 

Raw Footage

 

 

sheriff-joe-sb-1070-anti-immigrant

From New America Media

 

 

Because this senator refuses to represent all of the people in his district, because he is th architect of SB 1070, the most vicious anti-immigrant law in the history of the US….

 

 

dream-el-acto-del-suenos

 

because he constantly proposes new laws which get his name in the papers and which cost Arizona tax payers an MINT, because government services including schools, teachers and police have been cut since the passage of SB 1070…

 

 

 

because the business community suffered multi-million dollar losses after demonstrations and national boycotts which continue to this day, because people have died when Arizona refused them health care and transplants while funding litigation to support a racist law…

 

 

 

 

 

because Sen. Russell Pearce allied himself with anti-immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio
