SB 1070, Legislature on Blast for Saturday, April 23 March for Families and Children

Artist Ernesto Yerena's killer poster for this Saturday's march

This Saturday, April 23 marks the one-year anniversary of Governor Jan Brewer signing Senate Bill 1070 into law. And though there have been a few encouraging cracks in the racist facade of late, the oppression, the raids, and separation of families continues.

That's why it's important to support the Puente Movement-organized march this Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. from Cesar Chavez Plaza at 200 West Jefferson Street in downtown Phoenix, to the state Capitol at 1700 West Washington Street.

Speakers will include firebrand, pro-immigrant Congressman Luis Gutierrez from Illinois. He always gets the joint rockin'. 

Yes, the injunction against the most egregious parts of 1070 has been upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, but other parts of the law are still in effect, such as the "harboring" provision of 1070, which means if you happen to give a lift to someone you believe is undocumented or let them stay at your apartment, you could be hit with a criminal charge.

And if they catch him or her in your car, your vehicle will be impounded. No excuses if they happen to be related to you by blood, BTW.

Another part of the law not on hold is the dictate that no city, county or agency, such as a law enforcement entity, can "adopt a policy that limits or restricts the enforcement of federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law."

Should the entity not comply with this dictate, it can be sued by any citizen of Arizona.

Thus, the battle is not over until 1070 is utterly moribund. That is, when it is repealed. When that happens, you'll know the tsunami of hate has relented. Till then, the fight continues.

Puente's recent press release for the march states that,

"This year the Arizona State Legislators introduced twenty seven anti-migrant bills that targeted families and children. Although the most controversial bills were voted down a couple weeks ago, throughout the years we have seen the patterns of anti-migrant bills being drafted and introduced year after year. We send a message to the state of Arizona and Obama Administration to stop to the anti-migrant attacks on our community."

This is why the march is important, one year following the travesty of 1070 becoming law.

In other words, no army pulls back after a few minor victories. It advances until the triumph is overwhelming and complete.

Word to the local anarchists who may attend: There will be a lot of kids and parents present, and it is not the time for you to engage in aggro stunts with your natural enemy, the police. This is a non-violent march. Save that clash for another day.

The poster Chad is such a tool, and elitist moron. Chaddy, some Americans aren't into school. Some are into blue collar work. Some are built for labor and they like it that way. In other words, these types are the people that BUILT THE WHOLE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, sir. If this nation had to rely on prissy little newspaper people, or lawyers, or whatever other people you so obviously feel are so damned important to this nation--IT WOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CREATED. You need to read some American history and ponder about some of the various people that built this nation. THEN YOU NEED TO START RESPECTING THE LAW OR YOU WILL BE A VICTIM OF YOUR OWN DISRESPECT OF IT, SOONER OR LATER--SON.

This country issues work visas for migrant farm workers. I don't know what is so hard to understand about that. If people are in this country illegally they need to be deported. There is a right way to do things and a wrong way. People who enter this country illegally do so at their peril and the peril and cost of American citizens. If someone immigrates to this country legally we know that they have the means to earn a living here, have a sponsor if necessary, have no diseases and are not criminals. Further, our country then can control how many people enter this country so that it does not negatively affect our infrastructure and our economy. I'm sorry that this does not seem to be patently obvious to you. If you have a relative who is here illegally and you are intentionally transporting that individual and your car is impounded - oh well. Illegals have murdered innocent Americans, have increased the crime committed against Americans, have brought the brutal and almost inhumane Mexican mafia to this country, have negatively impacted our salaries, our hospitals, our schools, our roads, our communities, our social services. All countries have boundaries and rules for entry into their countries. Including Mexico - where you can serve two years in jail for being in that country illegally. We are a sovereign nation. Quit invading. Further the little posters by La Raza renaming California to Atzlan and saying all whites get out with a semi automatic picture does not make us happy. Additionally, being told on May 1 that illegals are going to march in Los Angeles and demand legal status - and if they don't get it they will start a civil war - is making Americans furious. Let me tell you something, the majority of Americans want illegals OUT. We don't side with you. Keep pushing us. We are going to push back. We are Americans, Americans from every culture and country - people here illegally are not Americans. They are not welcome when they crash the gates. Immigrate here properly or get out. If the American people want to change the immigration laws they will - so far I have seen no outcry from Americans begging to open the borders. This is not Mexico, or Columbia or Russia, etc. This is America. If you are here illegally I think you should not only be deported but all your assets seized. You should be fined and chipped so if you try and enter our country again we can track your sorry butt, pick you up and toss you back over the border or put you on a floatilla home. If you are a refugee - seek refugee status. You are not Americans You are not Americans You are not Americans. LEAVE.

This divisive issue is a distraction from the genuine problems we face. So-called "free trade" agreements allow corporations to outsource and move to countries that do not have the same protections we have for the environment, workers and public. We should be demanding that these agreements be changed. We should not accept any products that have been made in places that do not equal or exceed our standards for the environment, worker safety and public health. We need to stop corporations from bringing their money back here without paying taxes, their so-called 'tax holiday' is just another way to cheat the American public. Huge corporations like Exxon, Bank of America, General Electric and so many others are paying zero...ZERO...in taxes. If the super-rich and their corporations paid their fair share, the way we do, then we wouldn't have the supposed "budget problems". Look up the budget proposal made by the Progressive Caucus. It isn't getting any air-time from the media, but it is the budget that would end the deficit most quickly without hurting the poor and middle-class. Why do you suppose so many people are so frantic about immigration? Because the top 1-5% of wealthy people in this country own more and get more income than the rest of us and it is only getting worse. Of course, we're getting a bit hysterical, when unemployment and underemployment is still a horrendous problem.......which the Republicans have yet to address in any form, even though that was their campaign promise. Instead of investigating and demanding more from the multi-millionaires and billionaires, they want to make sure that we take our anger and fears out on the poorest of the poor. And we comply.

we need to send a loud, clear message to rep. luis gutierrez, go back, to mexico. you people think you are so good and productive and can contrbute so much to this country, that you would encorage your own people to come here illegly. why don't they stay and work to make that country better,so they can have top jobs and peace of mind they come here for. do you understand we do not want you here.

Every one of you who support illegals being in the US, put your money where your mouths are! You pay for everything they need and be responsible for when they murder, rape, and all the other crimes they commit. And while you are at it, give them your identities! What? What's that you say? No? You can't or won't do it? Exactly! Then don't expect the rest of us to!

Luis Gutierrez is not "pro-immigrant." He's pro illegal alien. Citizens and legal residents are not what concerns this elected representative. He's all about the criminals.

The undocumented are nothing but criminals who sneak their useless brown asses into the United States with the sole intention of leeching the taxpayers dry.

If anything, the feds need to dismiss their lawsuit, lift the injunction, and adopt SB1070 as their own. I also heartily encourage every state to solve their illegal alien problem.

1 year ago, I blasted Russell Pearce as a sick old man whose primary agenda was to benefit the MCSO shurf. My eyes are now open and I now agree with Senate President Pearce on the criminal illegals.

President Barack Obama absolutely will not stop deporting the criminal illegals. The criminal illegals are nothing but a detriment to the economic recovery of the United States.

I'm sorry these people have no future in Mexico. But they have no future in America either when they sneak across the border.

I say round up all 12 million illegals and force them to secure the border.

RE: Idaho Thank you! I am a single / white / 50+ female! Let me tell you how difficult it is to find a job, in the state of California. Where at one construction job site 40 workers were found to be working using a dead persons SS #. And now guess what the lastest trick is, use your child s(who was born in the US) SS #.

When is the last time a person made a service call to your home (Sears, Comcast, ATT, etc.) in California English is not those workers first language either.

My previous employer laid me off in 12/2008, 75% of the employees are here on H1 visa and the US Employees are training these people to return to India or China or Poland, etc. to do the work. Then there are those who slip through the cracks and remain in the US on those expired Visas (that are not tracked) .

Wake up people!!

Illegals are criminals to this, and ANY OTHER COUNTRY! Committing a felony is punishable by the full extent of the law! Anyone AIDING AND ABETTING a known felon is guilty of a felony, and must, by the law, be punished! What is it about this countries laws that you don't understand? Try sneaking into ANY other country in the world, and see what happens! Come here legally, or get the hell out!!! This is not a free ride at the citizens expense! We have no obligation to educate you, or allow you to work without a green card! This is not anything racial, some of my best friend are of Mexican decent, and they agree with me. I don't care what country your from, if you sneak in, you should be punished, no matter WHO your related to!

Unfortunately, as usual, this liberal author has forgotten some important points:

1) It's not the law-abiding citizens who come here illegally. Coming here illegally makes you a criminal by default. It shows that you don't respect our laws. We are a country of law and order, and if you're willing to break our immigration laws, you're willing to break other laws.

2) Illegals aren't doing jobs Americans don't want -- they're taking away jobs Americans would otherwise do. We have an unemployment crisis, and many of our (legal) citizens would love to have the jobs that illegals are doing.

3) Mexico's immigration laws and enforcement are much tougher than those of the U.S. Just try to sneak into Mexico illegally, and see what happens to you. To argue against enforcement of U.S. immigration laws, or to argue that we need to do anything other than strengthen those laws and the enforcement of them, is hypocritical. Anyone who is against tougher immigration laws and tougher enforcement, is anti-American and needs to quit. You're harming our society with your rhetoric. You need to shut up and go away.

Oh look, an offensive looking commie-style poster, ridiculous group names, the tired old race-card and BS propaganda. Hey, you, all the Illegal Aliens(and apologists) go back to Mexico. Then if you want to come here do it under the law. otherwise if you think SB1070 is bad, just wait till we adopt Mexico's procedures towards Illegals. Then you'll really be prancing and flitting your little fingers and crying.

It's ironic that they are having their "march" at a plaza named for a famous Mexican-AMERICAN who hated illegal aliens and often turned them in to be deported. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...

I am not anti-immigrant. Illegal aliens are not immigrants.

I support SB1070. I was born here, I pay taxes, I pay into social security. Hey, you wanna come to MY country? Do it legally and don't make me and thousands of tax-paying CITIZENS of this country support you for YEARS while you leech off the system, get free health care while I have to pay for it for myself and my family, refuse to learn to speak, read, and write English FLUENTLY, and commit crimes against tax-paying CITIZENS. Come one, come all, but don't do it on MY DIME and expect me to make concessions for you!!!!!!!!

These marches, complaints and screaming out undeserved rights sounds more and more like an attack on USA soil by an invasion. Mexico is more of a national security threat than any Arab country and why war hasn't been claimed on Mexico sure beats me. It would disolved thier country government, the worst on the planet, free the people and give them the opertunity to stay home and be productive in a democratic society. Besides anyone who wipes out Mexico's government would be doing the rest of the world a big favor, taking out the smelly garbage.

This Cesar Chavez plaza should be renamed for Jan Brewer. She has at least had the guts to stand up to the socialist (bowel) movement in this country and tell Obonehead to fuck off, and to do what is right for Arizona. If all you criminals who aid and abet illegals would just leave the state and go to Commiefornya(where you'd be welcomed with open arms by the sanctuary city leader Tony Freeloaderaigosa), things would improve GREATLY in Arizona.Get the hell out if you don't like it.

Not a smart idea. If they get nuked, then they will literally have no choice but to come up here. The main focus should be on making them want to stay where they are in Mexico, instead of coming up here in such huge numbers.

Nothing divisive about this. US Citizens want these people to go home and come back by our legal and very simple immigration methods or STAY OUT. The only ones it divides are the illegal alien criminals and a few vocal, extremist lefties. People of the sort who complain endlessly about business and rich people and call themselves "progressive" while complaining about conservatives cutting spending, as because if we just let in enough illegals and hike enough taxes we can spend ourselves rich.

We've tried that for decades. This is where leftism has gotten us. Go away.

Illegal aliens pay taxes too dipshit. And they pay into social security. Read this asshole:

"Stephen C. Goss, the chief actuary of the Social Security Administration and someone who enjoys bipartisan support for his straightforwardness, said that by 2007, the Social Security trust fund had received a net benefit of somewhere between $120 billion and $240 billion from unauthorized immigrants."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

That means they're helping to keep social security solvent for shitheads like you.

And they don't get free health care. They have no health care. Which is why they have to wait till they're on the edge of death and go to an emergency room.

And before you start, more uninsured whites use the emergency room than uninsured illegals.

Suck it, Guest. Suck it long, suck it hard. I think you know how.

Actually, Cesar Chavez was completely against illegal aliens... but the illegal alien supporters don't want people to know that. They use him because he was a great Hispanic American who worked hard to make sure that those who wanted to be farmworkers were documented and organized. I would bet that Mr. Chavez is looking over these illegal aliens and their supporters with total disgust!

Spoken like two-ton redneck. Chavez supported the Reagan amnesty. Yeah he didn't like it when farmers tried to strikebreak with illegal aliens. Does that mean you're pro-union, too, Brandy?

Dolores Huerta supports Puente, has marched with Sal Reza. She co-founded the UFW along with Chavez. So shut the fuck up and go back to eating that bucket of chicken and giving R-rated "massages" for a living.

Brandy Baron

As always, the truth hurts so because you have no real argument for your side you have to resort to insults. Of course Chavez supported amnesty because, as I said, he was against illegal aliens (politely referred to as 'undocumented') and did all that he could to see that they became legal. It is a well known fact that he called for illegals to be reported, wanted immigration to be limited and that he and Huerta fought the Bracero Program because they believed that it undermined US workers. In 1973, the UFW set up a "wet line" along the United States-Mexico border to prevent Mexican immigrants from entering the United States illegally and potentially undermining the UFW's unionization efforts. No, I am definately not pro-union but at least at that time one was good for something LOL

As a teenager I actually attended some of the AFW meetings here and rallies to give support. He was a great man and would be ashamed of what the people he fought for have become.

Use whatever insults you like on me. (BTW... I hate chicken and my massages are far from that exciting LOL) Once again, your insults only demonstrate your lack of intelligent argument for your side.
