Want a little background on Arizona’s SB 1070?
Arizona’s SB 1070 was the brainchild of FAIR.
“…Arizona’s SB 1070, were authored by the same crowd at the nativist extremist group FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Of the Prince William County measure, Mike Hethmon, general counsel for FAIR’s legal arm, the Immigration Reform Law Institute, crowed to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that “to the extent that there is some kind of mad scientist behind all this, we’ll be happy to take credit.”
Let’s get this straight. Jan Brewer’s new law, written by John Tanton’s flunkie, Kris Kobach for white supremacist lovin’ Russell Pierce, will not allow someone who is illegally targeted by the cops and is not illegal, from having any recourse?
Ruben Navarrett, Jr. brought up a salient point of Jan Brewer’s idiot law.
“…As such, the law doesn’t just allow for the possibility of racial and ethnic profiling of anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant (read: Latinos). It all but requires this sort of thing to happen. In fact, it includes a provision by which concerned citizens can sue law enforcement agencies that they believe to be non-compliant.
The Pink Flamingo does not watch Rachel Maddow’s show. BUT – on Thursday night, she beat the you know what out of Dan Stein of FAIR. Because I know quite a bit about the subject, I quickly realized that Maddow’s had done her homework.
Stein was vile and nasty in the interview, and just plain lied.
Sorry for the post today. The Pink Flamingo is dealing with an unfinished and over-due book (the May 1 deadline is sooo not going to be made.)
This comes from an email that found its way into my inbox. I am fairly comfortable with many of the details, enough so to use it. I am told the email is not a hoax.
As you know, one of the local ranchers was murdered in Douglas two weeks ago. His funeral is tomorrow. I received three messages similar to the one below from different officers within the Rangers and law enforcement.
The problem with the new law in Arizona is it presumes anyone who does not speak perfect English, or anyone who had English as a second language is an immigrant and must produce papers. It DOES NOT ALLOW FOR people to have been born here in the US, from families who have been here for hundreds of years, who do not have English as their first language.
While the English first bigots will begin screaming, I live in New Mexico. We are state where many older Hispanics still do not speak English, but their families have been here forever.
They are at it again.
The ugly specter of immigration reform is rearing it’s nasty head.
I have several objections to hard-core immigration reform.
- It ignores the actual problem along the border of drug running
- It will doom the GOP to a minority party
- It is short sighted
- It is potentially dangerous to our national interests
The extreme far right is getting downright nasty. Hugh Hewitt is now trying to decide who should and should not be a Republican. Rudy Giuliani has stepped in it by endorsing Trey Grayson over Ron Paul’s heir. Someone needs to warn Rudy that Ron Paul Bots are vile, lying pieces of human debris who are one and the same with the John Birch Society. They will do or say anything to get their way.
What part of stupid is so difficult to comprehend?
The usual suspects are completely out of touch when it comes to what is going on along the border. They are living in their little never-never land of immigration reform and hating anyone who crosses them. The problem is drugs, guns, and the out of control war along the border. This is a war that is threatening to spill into this country any day now, with disastrous results.
