Arizona Immigration Law Rallies

Arizona Immigration Law Rallies – The Arizona immigration law has drawn large crowds in rallies and protests over the course of the last few weeks. Some of these protests have even taken place in Arizona, where citizens are the most upset over the new changes to the immigration laws within the state. Recently, tens of thousands of protesters marched nearly five miles toward the state capital in an effort to show their disapproval for the immigration bill. While there has been no exact number pinned on the size of the crowd, the protest is easily the largest that the state has seen since the bill was signed into law over a month ago.

The law states that officers can ask to see documentation regarding status in the country from individuals that they deem to be ‘suspicious.’ The law has caught a serious amount of backlash, with many of the protesters claiming that the law will lead to even more racial profiling. There are many well known critics of the bill, including President Barack Obama who recently commissioned the Department of Justice to look into the legality of the law. Obama has publicly said that he believes that immigration is a topic that needs to be governed at the national level, and not at the state level.

The Justice Department will more than likely be challenging the law in court before it has a chance to go into effect. The law is currently scheduled to go into effect on July 29, but that could change depending on how the government decides to tackle the problem. During the march a number of individuals spoke on loud speakers, shouting their disapproval of the law in front of thousands of protesters.

      Liberal lies! More Americans (and of course Arizonians) support this new law than oppose contrary to what the liberal left would have you believe.

      Save America, Help keep Canada’s neighbor from becoming a 3rd world country!!

      “THIS AIN’T OVER” We are dealing with an invasion,not illegal immigration!!!

      They will never be over the Mexican American war!!

      I live in Mount Vernon Washington, home of Glenn Beck. The city is under 20,000 yet we have a Mexican radio station and, according to the DEA, an active branch of a Mexican drug cartel.

      Quotes from Hispanics supporting that invasion

      [Hide Quoted Text]
      HISPANIC LEADERS SPEAK OUT! > > Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets; “Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die . . Through love of having children, we are going to take over.

      Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council. “They’re afraid we’re going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They’re right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay.”

      Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico, “The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a single shot.”

      Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas; “We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population . . . I love it. They are (inappropriate term) in their pants with fear. I love it.”

      Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, “Remember 187–proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens–was the last gasp of white America in California.”

      Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor, “We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country . . . I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, “I’m going to go out there and vote because I want to paythem back.”

      Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.”

      Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General, “We are practicing ‘La Reconquista’ in California.”

      Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University; “We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos . . . ”

      Are these just the words of a few extremists? Consider that we could fill up many pages with such quotes. Also, consider that these are mainstream Mexican leaders.

        Art Torres said “Last gasp for White REPUBLICAN California”. Get your facts right before spreading more fox news type of propaganda. Oh and another fact you should correct, he hasn’t been a Democratic chairman since last November. Good lord.

      People that are protesting are ridiculous. God forbid anyone try to do anything about how illegal immigration, drug smuggling, human trafficking, kidnapping, beheading, gang violence, high-speed chases with drug dealers, etc. is affecting the quality of life for the citizens of our border states.

      America throughout history has prosecuted almost every race. The Chinese, Japanese, blacks, Irish, Native Americans, etc. Instead of the American people working together to solve their nation’s problems, they do what Hitler did to gain power by blame other races for the country’s problems. The most ignorant solution. Its like when your sweeping the floor everyday, you tuck the pile of dirt underneath the rug. Place looks clean again but as time passes, it ruins the rug. Then what? Stop blaming others for America’s problems and get rid of the fed and the Bilderberg Group. That is where the real problem lies. They are the ones pulling the strings in today’s government. Stop being ignorant, get educated, and do something about it! PS. The North American Union is coming……..
