Russell Pearce's "Hate Humanity Tuesday" Targets AHCCCS, ABOR, and the Undocumented (Natch)

flyonpearce.jpg
Beelzebubba Pearce's Day of Hate, on its way...

To twist a line from the Bible's Book of Amos, "Let the hatred roll down like water, and stupidity like a mighty stream." This, because "justice" and "righteousness" are sorely absent in Sand Land.

So shall it be in the state Senate Appropriations Committee tomorrow, Tuesday, February 22, when a slew of anti-immigrant, anti-Mexican, anti-student, anti-education, anti-brown, anti-poor, anti-humanity bills will be heard. The cataclysm begins at 2 p.m.

If the Republinuts get their way, the state's Medicaid program will be eliminated. So too will the Arizona Board of Regents. And that's just the tip of the glacier.

The agenda, which you can eyeball, here, includes some of the "crazy" bills that couldn't get through other committees, such as SB 1308 and SB 1309, which are meant as a challenge to the birthright citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

That's a pet project of state Senate President Russell Pearce, and the rest of what will happen Tuesday is part of his master plan to wreck Arizona.

You'll recall, state Senate Judiciary Chairman Ron Gould, had to withdraw 1308 and 1309 from his own committee because he didn't have the votes.

But the wingnuts have enough votes to give a "do-pass" recommendation to this illegal, unconstitutional and un-American effort, one guaranteed to convince the world, if it's not convinced already, that Arizona in 2011 is equivalent to Alabama circa 1960.

Oh, but there's more, much more. Take SB 1405, which would effectively turn hospital employees into immigration agents by requiring them to report anyone who seeks the use of an emergency room and cannot prove that they are in-country legally.

There's SB 1519, the Republicans' AHCCCS kill-bill authorizing the elimination of the state's Medicaid system, and reallocating money to DHS, the Department of Health Services.

According to state Senator Kyrsten Sinema, this will result in "savings" to the state of $900 million, and a resulting loss of $7.6 billion in federal aid.

SB 1407 is a particularly nefarious piece of anti-child legislation. Though the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that a state cannot deny education to little ones here sans docs, legislative extremists such as Pearce and others are hell-bent on scaring the bejesus out of undocumented kids and their parents.

The proposed legislation requires schools to "count" those children who cannot "prove" they are lawful residents. The effect? Parents and children will stay away from school. Insidious, eh?

And there's Pearce's chilling SB 1611, his "immigration omnibus," which mandates that those convicted of "aggravated taking" of another's identity (that also included "fictitious" persons who are invented "to obtain employment") serve 180 days in the county jail, even if the judge sentences them to probation.

SB 1611 also makes it a crime for those unlawfully present to operate a motor vehicle in Arizona. For this offense, you lose your vehicle and are incarcerated for no less than 30 days, during which time you'll likely be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"Basically, this bill takes all of Pearce's past [failed] immigration legislation and puts it in one bill," Sinema told me.

Pearce's cornucopia of prejudice ( which is too ambitious to summarize completely) also requires K-12 pupils to provide proof of citizenship or legal residency -- you know, so they can be counted, as is stipulated in SB 1407. And if they don't come up with a notarized affidavit explaining why they can't provide a birth certificate, or if the explanation is unsatisfactory or not forthcoming, the case will be turned over to local law enforcement.

The bill will also forbid the Arizona Board of Regents from admitting any student to a university if they cannot prove citizenship or legal residence. (Same goes for boards overseeing community colleges.)

Of course, that's assuming ABOR survives state Senator Andy Biggs' SB 1115, which would junk ABOR and establish a "separate Board of Trustees" for each institution.

What happened to Pearce's promise to his fellow Republicans to put immigration bills on hold back when he was convincing them to make him Senate President?

The man from Mesa speaks with forked tongue, obviously. And he's running the legislature along the lines of the Marquis de Sade directing plays by the insane at Charenton. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Dear God. I'm a loyal Republican and even I think this man has got to go. The state is still reeling from the effects of the worst recession since the Great Depression, and all he can think about is scaring off Mexicans.

I mean, seriously. We (Republicans) have a legislative supermajority, and because of this lunatic all we're doing with this power is ensuring that no Hispanic-American will ever vote for us, ever.

Actually the only really bad bill is the one about the ABOR.

Simply counting people who are residing in this State without the proper immigration status is not severe at all. In fact, I would welcome more transparancy in which government agencies are providing services and funding to such people. Right now, the right-wing nativist whackos are able to claim that "the sky is falling" with regards to the expenditure of taxpayer funds for the benefit of undocumented workers and other illegal aliens. Should an actual count of the people in this category who we are assisting were to be made - the Nativists would lose their main argument. It will become obvious that there is not a huge sum of monies paid to educate and treat these individuals and we'll be able to put to bed this false notion and get on to other more pressing budget issues.

Now, I don't know of one organization in Arizona advocating for the State to ignore undocumented workers or illegal alien. If you know of one, please share it with me. As far as I understand, the only objection that some of my fellow citizens have with laws that deal with the undocumented population here is the chance (or reality) that those laws will impact citizens' rights.

NO ONE IS ADVOCATING THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION INTO THE US!!!!! Stop trying to confunse the issue.

As a citizen of the City of Mesa, Maricopa County, and the State of Arizona, I, for one, am disgusted with this sick old man and his hate-filled legislation.

Pearce designs the bullshit legislation because it benefits only two people: himself and his buddy, the Flaccid Fool of MCSO.

If Governor Jan Brewer would stop playing pocket pool with Pearce and the MCSO shurf and actually do something that benefits the State of Arizona and its citizens, and we actually started hiring people, and more people were attracted to coming here, then she'd actually be doing the job we the people hired and are paying her a salary to do.

But alas, we the people elected, and are paying, complete and utter dumbasses to run our state. Makes me glad I supported non-Republicans last election cycle.

We need to overhaul our entire state and rid it of disgraceful people like Pearce, Brewer, the MCSO shurf, Horne, etc., and replace them with people we can actually trust to do their jobs........

lol i laugh at all the various ways Pearce wants law enforcement to get involved in immigration. THEY CANT EVEN CLEAR THE 40K OUTSTANDING WARRANTS AS IT IS NOW!!! Yet they expect LEA's to become stretched thin even more so they cant handle actual, real crime? And whats with his driving while an illegal law, didnt he get fired from the DMV for altering a friends driving record that had DUI's?

The Class West Associates are slamming us with literally 100s of press releases, this one directed to Mr. Lemons. It appears that these Associates are working with ASU student researchers and law students and have turned Pearce, Arpaio, and others in to the international prosecuters at The Hague.

This is getting serious people, and it looks real and credible with the documentation provided by the group "ASU for Liberty," sending E-mails from GerriC7@gmail.com. We wonder whether legislator and ASU Professor Kyrsten Sinema may be promoting this behind the scenes. No answer from her listed ASU exchange.

"To STEPHEN LEMONS (Stephen.Lemons@newtimes.com) of www.PhoenixNewTimes.com and The World Press: These are opinions based on known facts. Do a GOOGLE (or your preferred search engines) on the INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT PROSECUTERS, and get a complaint and request for investigation in to THE HAGUE as we tie in the GLOBAL THIEVES JOE ARPAIO. RUSSELL PEARCE, JAN BREWER, RICHARD MELLON SCAIFE, TOM FITTON, and many others in the WANTAGATE THEFT OF TRILLIONS being exposed at http://wantagate.blogspot.com . Our complaint to the GLOBAL 'CUTERS is at http://wantagate.blogspot.com/... . You can consult with attorney and legislator KYRSTEN SINEMA about these issues. Look up THE ROME STATUTE, Article 15, as you BECOME A GLOBAL LAW DOG (or HAWK, since you're an AVIAN) against the SANDLAND LOSERS. GREASEBALL JOE and RANCID RUSSELL at least KNOW ABOUT the GLOBAL RIP-OFF OF TRILLIONS FROM "We The People," and that's THREE to SEVEN in the FEDERAL SLAM FOR MISPRISION OF FELONY, plus any INTERNATIONAL CHARGES. The historic and highly incriminating HODGES LETTER is attached, so "Geezer G" BUSH, SENIOR is clearly complicit, and THE GEEZ is giving orders to his punks "Suck Ass" JOE, "The Wasilla WackJob" SARAH PALIN, RANCID RUSSELL. and THE DRUNKEN SKANK JAN BREWER, and many other corrupt thugs.

Apparently they want Mr. Lemons to go after Pearce harder. The Bird's article hear shows that he may be shifting into high attack gear.

Here's the release,

"To STEPHEN LEMONS and JAMES KING of www.PhoenixNewTimes.com , Who's afraid of the BIG BAD CIA? The BIG BAD CIA? The BIG BAD CIA?

I don't think Pearce cares what sort of damage and legacy he leaves behind. I have to think that Brewer would like to be remembered as a fair to good Governor. As it stands now, she is rapidly becoming the worst Governor we have had in the 30 years or so I have been here. History will judge her more harshly than any other in the last three decades for certain.

Russell Pearce/ GOP have no clue that the U.S. Constitution, not the Arizona STATE legislature, is the supreme law of the land!

1) Mandating e-verify for ALL employers runs against the VOLUNTARY nature of the federal program as stipulated by the U.S. Congress.

2) 'Identity Theft' charges against persons using FICTITIOUS identities conflicts with the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on identity theft! In a 9-0 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled against Russell Pearce/GOP on that one!

3) Turning schools into immigration cops also violates the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the matter.

4) Making it a crime for undocumented persons to drive violates the 'supremacy clause' of the U.S. Constitution which precludes individual states from enacting their OWN immigration laws.

5) Attempts to gut the 14th amendment guarantee of birthright citizenship are the most egregious example of Russell Pearce/GOP utter CONTEMPT for the United States Constitution! The language is clear and unambiguous; how can someone who is NOT 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof' be an 'illegal alien'? Duh???

The framers of the 14th amendment meant 'owing sole allegiance to the U.S.' when they inserted 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof' insists Russell Pearce/GOP. Yet, the record of the debate on the U.S. Senate floor CLEARLY indicates otherwise! If the framers of the 14th amendment meant 'sole allegiance to the U.S.' instead of 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof', they would have wrote THAT instead of 'subject to the jurisdiction thereof'!

Ironically, when these nutty proposals are stuck down by courts, Russell Pearce/GOP will be foaming at the mouth screaming;

'WHAT PART OF ILLEGAL IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?'

I think "counting" these individuals would actually be helpful to reject the nativist arguments of our country being "overrun" by illegals.

Dude, it's Mormon, not Mormans. And they have nothing to do with the FLDS and child rape. I'm a Mormon and I'm the Chairman of the Citizens for a Better Arizona, the effort to recall Pearce. Many other Mormons are similarly disgusted with him, including the group "Mormons Against 1070", over 200 of whom marched in protest of the bill last July. The LDS Church took the unusual step in December of issuing a statement on immigration that runs directly against everything that Russell Pearce has advocated.

So don't judge us on this one bad apple. And make no mistake about it, he is a very, very bad apple.

No! I was barrowing that phrase. Because your Ron Paul does not know how to start a "R3Volution". In other words, i meant a--REVOLUTION.(doh!). Past marches/protests did not fully worked because they only involved Mexicans and their groups. If everyone(both White & non-White Americans and their groups) get involved, maybe, just maybe things can change for the better.

cutting everyone off of medicaid is anti-poor and inhuman.

These bills also put everyone under the suspicion of being "illegal". Everyone will have to prove, at all times, that they are citizens or otherwise here legally. It's bad enough that every single person will have to prove this, whenever and where ever they go. That is so preposterously authoritarian (and quite ironic in an allegedly 'get the gov't off my back' state.) But what's worse is that it will inevitably be subjectively enforced, with "ethnic looking" people being viewed with greater suspicion by authorities. Someone maybe be Fifth generation Mexican American and they will still get looked over twice and a white Canadian snowbird, not at all.

If Arizona is really about freedom from government intrusion, how are these totalitarian laws not a total invasion of my life? How about we arrest actually dangerous criminals, who are a menace to society (like Pearce and Brewer's sons, for example) and stop picking on little brown babies.
