[quote]From Fear to Fact: U.S. Citizen Arrested for ‘Driving While Latino’ in Arizona
by Lisa Sharon Harper 04-29-2010

Certain moments in our nation’s history have consistently opened the door for the least civil voices to enact evil through civil policy: think the institution of race-based U.S. slavery, the Indian removals, Jim Crow laws, legalized segregation, the federal protection of lynching mobs, and, don’t forget, the Japanese internment camps, among others. In each case, hard economic times led otherwise sane people to unleash insane injustice under the guise of public policy.

There’s something about hard-knock times that consistently opens civil minds to uncivilized acts. When those minds hold the power of the policy pen, then personal malice becomes government-sponsored acts of terror against its own citizens.

This time it is the good, economically recessed, fear-ravaged people of [COLOR="Red"]Arizona who have elevated bottom-dwellers to the place of law-makers. They actually handed a registered hate group, FAIR (Federation for American Immigration Reform), the pen and asked them to help write Arizona’s anti-immigrant law, SB1070[/COLOR], which requires police officers to ask for “papers” from anyone they “suspect” might be an illegal immigrant. If they cannot prove their legal residence, they will be thrown in jail. This Machiavellian law places the U.S. in company with Apartheid South Africa, Nazi Germany, and the Antebellum South, each of which demanded the presentation of “papers” demonstrating the individual from the minority group was allowed to be in certain areas of town.

On April 23, Governor Jan Brewer took her policy-making pen and placed her government-issued stamp of approval on SB1070, signing it into law.
The first victim fell before the bill was signed. The victim, Abdon, a Latino trucker, was pulled over and asked for his “papers.” When he didn’t have his birth certificate on his person, he was jailed. His wife was called and told to bring his birth certificate to the jail to arrange his release. Abdon is a United States citizen born in Fresno, California.

There are times in scripture and history when God looks at unjust laws and calls people of faith to stare them down and break them. Think Abram and Sarah posing as brother and sister upon entering Egypt to get around a dirty law established by Pharaoh. Think Moses defying Pharaoh’s legal hold on his Jewish kinfolk. Think Jesus defying religious laws to touch the bleeding woman and the leper and to heal on the Sabbath. Think Paul who called the church to cross ethnic and racial boundaries, flying in the face of religious laws of his day.

Then think of the abolitionists and conductors on the underground railroad who said “no” to the complete crush of oppression in their day. Think of Rosa Parks who starred in the face of segregation and said “no” in her day. Think of César Chávez who mounted a 36-day spiritual fast against environmental and labor injustice, saying “no” in his day.

This is our day.

It is time to march. It is time to make some serious noise. We must speak up and out and make it known that we will not lie down. We will not comply with injustice. We will not let hate and fear govern our nation. No! We have come too far for that! Too many people have bled and died and paid severe costs for us to trample on their sacrifices with unjust laws like SB1070.

Without federal standards, states are free to enact their own unjust immigration policies. Today, pundits say Congress is backing away from its commitment to introduce and pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform in this session.

As a person of faith, I call on our congress to have faith! Do what God calls all of us to do when faced with government sponsored evil. Look injustice in the eye and say “no.” Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform now.[/quote]

[size="6"]Arizona outfielder Gerardo Parra pulled from lineup for looking quite Mexican[/size]

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra was pulled out of the batter's box during his first plate appearance last night after several Arizona fans reported to stadium police that Parra looked suspiciously Mexican. "Under the new state law, we have to follow up on these things," said a stadium security spokesman. "And it's good we did. He didn't have the required paperwork." Parra told police he is from Venezuela, not Mexico, but had no official identification on him at the plate. "His wristbands had his name on them, but that's not good enough," said arresting office Lt. Michael Dellesardo. "It's pretty easy to get fake wristbands these days." Parra was arrested on the field and is now awaiting a deportation hearing. Arizona manager AJ Hinch replaced Parra in the lineup with Cole Gillespie. "Cole is our fourth outfielder and has great potential," said Hinch. "Because he's white."

I'm for the bill in general.
Maybe not all the stuff in there should be in but there are WAAAAAAAAAAY to many illegals in the country.

Either come in legally or get kicked the fuck out.

Here's a good idea: don't hire them. Pay an American a decent wage to landscape your yard rather than picking dudes up at Home Depot. Give business owners the tools to check the legitimacy of a person's ID. Last I checked, my license had a scanable magnetic strip on the back. Fine the fuck out of businesses who employ illegals. Sorry casinos; no more housekeepers from El Salvador.

I'm checking your birth certificate the next time I see you.

Not sure whether you're Samoan or Mexican, but I'll find out!

Ok, I'm lost on this one. On one hand some of these people complain that the fed is taking away state rights but now they claim the fed isn't helping them.

Pick one, either tell the fed to stay out of your state and immigration is your problem or admit that immigration is a national issue like health care and the fed should be involved.

Also I heard on the news, can't say it's true since I've not been able to find the bill on line so take it for what it's worth until the bill is found: That if you're legal and don't have your papers you can get up to 6 months for not having your papers on you. If true this is really crap. I guess instead of pinning a not to the teacher on your childs clothing now you would have to pin their papers to them when they go out to go to school.

Hardly, particularly if you ask a Spaniard.


It's almost like 2 totally separate languages...

Thanks, didn't see what they were talking about. This is case in point why you know what's in a law/bill before stating as fact what one of the talking head says.
