  • If Republicans reject Sarah Palin, we don't deserve to win

    08/04/2010 2:07:38 PM PDT · by se_ohio_young_conservative · 262 replies · 1+ views
    To all who support Sarah Palin. Please do not support or send money to anyone that rejects her in the future. Do not support the RNC. Send your money to SarahPac. To all of those who don't support Sarah Palin. I am seeing far too many people buy into the idea that she is not ready to be President. My question is this, What more does she have to do to be ready ? She already has excutive experiance. She is a great leader. I see no reason that she could not be a great President. What makes you think...

    Most of us wouldn't even be Americans if it weren't for immigration. I was born in Kearney, Arizona--a small town between Phoenix and Tucson. But my own parents came from Mexico. They came, like so many people before them, to make a better life for their kids. My dad worked in the copper mines, and my mom worked at Motorola. Today, I've achieved what my parents hoped for. I'm a proud Arizonan with three kids. I work for the Town of Gilbert Water Department, making sure our hydrants are safe, water lines are clear, and our system is running smoothly....

    PHOENIX -- Groups opposed to Arizona's tough new immigration law are planning some ``civil disobedience'' on July 29, the day the legislation takes effect. The leaders of the groups say they'll hold a candlelight vigil at the state Capitol in downtown Phoenix, march to a nearby church at 4:30 a.m. for a nondenominational service and then march to the federal courthouse in Phoenix. They declined to describe what the ``civil disobedience'' would be, but emphasized it will be nonviolent. Alfredo Gutierrez, organizer with the group Somos America, characterized the protests as acts of defiance and hope for the Hispanic community....
  • Why I oppose Arizona immigration law SB1070 and got the ZOT!

    06/20/2010 8:59:50 PM PDT · by Danny H · 188 replies · 1+ views
    I'm a conservative Republican on over 9 out of 10 issues. I'm for almost everything conservatives and Republicans are for. However, SB1070 is a terrible bill. We need McCain's comprehensive immigration reform. The immigrants help many companies which in turn help the US economy. The bill does nothing but make people angry at each other. I also support McCain over Hayworth in the AZ senate race. We can't risk losing that seat to a Democrat if we except to pick up both houses in November.

    PHOENIX — Arizona shouldn't have to suffer from the country's broken immigration system when it has 15,000 police officers who can arrest illegal immigrants, state attorneys argued Thursday in the first major hearing on challenges to a strict new immigration law. [snip] Attorneys for Gov. Jan Brewer told Bolton that the lawsuit — filed by Phoenix Police Officer David Salgado and the statewide nonprofit group Chicanos Por La Causa — should be dismissed because Salgado and the group lack legal standing to sue and that there's no valid claim of immediate harm.

    JULY 13, 2010 Obama's Immigration Fakery In 2007, then-Sen. Obama helped derail an immigration bill he claimed to support. He's no more serious about a bipartisan bill today. BY WILLIAM MCGURN Many of us in the press have had a field day noting Sen. John McCain's (R., Ariz.) transformation from immigration maverick to the Wyatt Earp of border control. Fair enough. Back when it counted, however, Mr. McCain was the only Republican presidential candidate to back the last real chance we had for passing a bipartisan immigration compromise. Meanwhile, a man who claims to favor immigration reform but helped derail...

It's John McCain who is fighting for transparency and against backroom sweetheart deals. If we have a chance to stop the Democrats in...

    A reader just sent us evidence of GOP guv candidate Meg Whitman's latest outreach to Latino voters: A Spanish-language billboard saying she (would have) opposed Proposition 187 and opposes the controversial Arizona immigration law. The billboard, spotted on Highway 99 about 2 miles north of Earlimart in Tulare County, says: "NO a la Proposicion 187 y NO a la Ley de Arizona -- Meg Whitman." ...As we told you about a while back -- and again during our rundown of this week's Field Poll on the guv's race -- Whitman is trying to distance herself from her campaign chair's Pete...

    Immigrant advocates are rallying fellow activists to protest Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer during her scheduled visit this weekend for the National Governors Association meeting in Boston. The Washington, D.C.-based ANSWER Coalition and others are putting out pamphlets, sending e-mails and making preparations to bring in protesters by bus to express their opposition to Arizona's controversial immigration law, recently signed by Brewer. SNIP Sarah Sloan, a national organizer with the ANSWER Coalition, said protesters across the East want to voice their opposition to Brewer's decision to sign the bill and want "to send a clear message" to other governors not to...

    Rep. Pete Stark, California Democrat, appears to think security on our borders is not an important issue. The Golden Gate Minutemen posted video of an exchange during a recent town hall meeting on June 26 in Fremont, where the congressman asked a border security advocate in attendance, "Who are you going to kill today?" Mr. Stark continued to heckle and mock the town hall attendees who reacted in disbelief as the congressman disrespected his own constituents. (all emphasis is mine) Mr. Stark made such outrageous statements like: "If you knew anything about our border, you would know that's not the...

    It is good to criticize fanaticism, esp. BLIND fanaticism, but be equally weary of the fanatical Palin haters that parade around this site. Regardless of how some mask their true wishes for Palin in "constructive critic" guise, there are plenty of writers and thinkers out there who offer honest critique of Palin while having her and our country's best interests in mind and therefore want her to come out WINNING. Most of the FR trolls who post the latest Palin hit-piece of the day could care less for Palin and take joy everytime she supposedly "falls." To these types, Palin...
  • GOP's Whitman courts Latinos, re-states opposition to AZ law

    Washington (CNN) - The Republican who wants to be the next governor of California has a message for the state's Latinos: "Meg Whitman es una candidata diferente." Translation: "Meg Whitman is a different kind of candidate." The former eBay CEO released two Spanish-language television ads as part of a calculated courting of the state's 13.5 million+ Hispanics. "She is the Republican who opposes the Arizona law…" an announcer says in one of the ads. Many Latinos have vented anger at Arizona's passing of the nation's toughest immigration law. It requires law enforcement agents to "determine the immigration status" of anyone...

    As Hotsheet reported yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a television interview in Ecuador this month that the Obama Justice Department "will be bringing a lawsuit" against the controversial Arizona immigration measure signed into law earlier this year. The comment was striking because both President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had said only that the administration was considering a suit. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called Clinton's comments stunning and added that "to learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous." It was unclear yesterday whether Clinton's comments were simply...

    Enforcement leads to violence: Dem border lawmakers: Violent incidents will come with enforcement Several Democratic lawmakers representing districts along the U.S.-Mexico border say that more violent episodes, such as the recent killing of a Mexican teenager by a U.S. Border Patrol officer, can be expected as the region’s law enforcement is heightened. The killing of the teenager in the Mexico border city of Ciudad Juarez last week comes on the heels of an incident on May 31 at a San Diego border crossing in which a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer shocked a Mexican man to death. So the...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Friday credited Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) with inspiring him to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation. In 2007, McCain attempted to push through a comprehensive immigration reform bill alongside the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) But this year, facing a primary challenge from former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R), McCain has been more skeptical of current immigration legislation in Congress. Schumer spoke at a fundraising event for the Irish Lobby for Immigration reform in New York while on recess. There, he praised McCain. "While Lindsey Graham is a great partner and he loves our bill” Schumer said,...

But some of the e-mails and phone calls he has been receiving since returning from Washington, D.C., last week to join the chiefs of other major cities who spoke out against Arizona's immigration law have been among the worst he's ever seen.

You can get a PDF with the complaint here and links with my past coverage of the groups involved is at the Read More link below. Needless to say, this could tie the law up for a long time, so it's important to take effective action. If you'd like to do something about this: 1. Find legal scholars to weigh in on the complaint and find holes in their claims. 2. Point out to *those groups' current or potential supporters*...
