Puente's Senate Bill 1070 "Cultural Night of Resistance"

Puente is hosting a 1070-inspired art walk
It's been a year since Arizona's infamous immigration law, Senate Bill 1070, went into effect, gutted though it was, by the federal court.

While this could be cause for celebration by nativist politicians and their supporters, a community will gather in Phoenix to celebrate the fight against the state's bigoted immigration statute.

Puente, a Phoenix-based human-rights group, will be hosting a SB 1070 art walk along with other theatrical events on Friday night at El Portal, the Mexican restaurant located Grant Street and First Avenue that's owned by Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox.

Local artists will be showcasing their SB 1070-inspired art along with some local musical acts performing, all while enjoying free food.

"It's a very political and conscious [event]," says Sandra Castro, Puente member and event organizer.

Along with the art walk and musical performances, there will also be a year's worth of video footage from protests against the anti-immigrant law. 

Sandra adds that the event is just a reminder of all the fighting Arizona has done in order to put a stop to the state's immigration law.

"We have a year fighting back and we're going to continue to fight back," she stated.

In addition to all the rallies that Puente's organized over the past year, it has called for a boycott of Arizona. Puente's gone so far as to campaign against Latino-related events in Arizona, such as Mexican singer Vicente Fernandez's recent Phoenix concert and a Mexican soccer match played earlier this month in Glendale.

More recently they were the lone organization in Arizona to call for a boycott of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, when national groups failed to pressure the MLB to move the game out of Arizona. 

If you missed any SB 1070 rallies throughout the year or want to reminisce about Arizona's political fight against the breathing-while-brown law, El Portal will be the spot for you tomorrow night.

Either party, Democrat, Republican are completely ignorant or  justintentionally remain unconcerned about the massive expenditures forpandering to the illegal alien invasion. The federal debt ceiling andall 50 States have huge deficits from the illegal immigrationoccupation. Schools, health care and programs that is reducing Americato a pauper nation. You as the American people must start yelling atthe politicians in Washington, to demand they recognize that this issueis part of the discretionary spending. Only Rep. Michele Bachmann R-MN)Leader of the Tea Party Caucus, speaks out about this issue, witha conviction that this is part of our national issues. Bombard them withyou voices, tell them no Amnesty, No Immigration Reform, no Sanctuarycities or States and No Dream Acts.

 This needs to be repeated that When (Fair)analyzed the cost of illegal immigration and its nationwide deficit,they cameup with a stunning figure of $113 billion dollars annually, whileillegal alienrevenue to the government coffers was a total amount of $13Billiondollars andchange.Not included in these illegal foreign labors is wages leaving thecountry toforeign nations, estimated to be 46 Billion dollars? Our economy issinking andthe Obama administration is insisting on passage of another Amnestyfailure.Heritage Foundation has stated that cost for processing another Amnestyexpenditure is another 2.5 Trillion dollars,
