Boycott Arizona Urges Arizona Congressman

After Arizona passed what has been described as the most draconian immigration bill in the history of the United States, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D) Arizona, urged organizations to refrain from using Arizona as a convention site and urged them to refrain from spending their dollars in the state of Arizona until Arizona turns the clock forward and joins the rest of the union.

His request to boycott Arizona was captured and broadcast on a Youtube video by Cuentame, an organization that is mounting a campaign to boycott Arizona because of the passage of SB 1070.

      As a gay person, I will respect LIBHOMO’s right to make the remark that he/she did. However, being a victim of an assult by 2 Spanish speaking individuals when I was visiting a gay bar in Tucson about 20 years ago, the scars and feelings of beiing violated by the pepetrators of the crime and then the insulting way in which I was trated by mixed Latino/Anglo police officers, was a rude awaking to me. Why on earth, Libhoma, would I want more Spanish speaking thungs to enter this country illegally to reproduce and create more gay bashers like themselves. Sorry, I am made of different stuff. The governor of Arizona did the right thing and I (like most Americans feel that she did what she did to protect the safety of Americans.) Sorry, Libhomo, you can take your soapbox to the next street corner. I don’t agree with people who support hate mongers – straight or gay.

    Simple question:

    What happens if someone jumps the fence and wanders around a gated community without an ID? I am sure a resident of the community calls the cops saying someone that doesn’t look like they belong here is roaming the streets. The cops arrive. They would ask the wanderer a few questions. And since the wanderer does not have a valid reason for being inside the gated community, the cops would escort them out, wouldn’t they? Isn’t a country, like the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, a “gated community”, too?

    We should treat immigrants like Mexico does:

    At present, Article 67 of Mexico’s Population Law says, “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal … are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues.”

    That would simplify things.

    We do NOT need immigration reform. We need immigration ENFORCEMENT!

    WAKE UP AMERICA AND SMELL THE HYPOCRISY
