Arizona’s law: a domino effect?

“The nightmare becomes reality: the SB1070 law approved in the state of Arizona, United States, begins to have a domino effect in other parts of the U.S. territory.” Residents of Freemont, Nebraska, will vote on June 22 on a referendum on a municipal ordinance that would prohibit the sale or rent of housing to undocumented immigrants. In Miami, Francisco Portillo, “a leader of Hondurans in that city,” said that the Honduran community has denounced that local police are asking for documents from Latinos whom they suspect to be undocumented.

Meanwhile, Jorge Rivera, of the Honduran Association in Dallas, Texas, commented that several city mayors “are analyzing the possibility of approving laws similar to the SB1070.” It is estimated that there are around 30 million migrants in the U.S., and that more than half lack proper documents. The Honduran Chancery (read: Dep’t. of State) estimates that somewhat over one million Hondurans reside in the U.S., and that 65 percent of them do not have documents.

“The Democrats need us”

(From a wide ranging interview with David Campos, born in Guatemala, now a member of the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco, Calif.)

 In his effort to protect fellow citizens and other aliens who live in San Francisco, Campos has fought to defend its status as “sanctuary city” and to impede local law enforcement from assuming the role of Immigration agents, such as detaining aliens to question their status and carrying out round-ups and detentions. He stated, “What happened in Arizona is a message to the federal government that, if it doesn’t do something, these problems will continue. Now, in the mid-term elections, the role of the Latino community is important, because President Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress were elected by the migrants, and they would lose power without the Latino vote. The Democrats need us.”


El Nuevo Diario (Managua, Nicaragua) 5/17/10

“Sweet home Arizona” Portion of an op/col. by Martha Guadalupe Romero, titled as shown.

It is immoral, in the middle of a world economic crisis, and the free trade treaties that allow the movement of capital, that the mobility of the poor be criminalized, who only seek decent work in order to survive. The United States is one of the world’s major recipients of migrants, but it has not yet ratified the International Convention about Protection of the Migrant Workers’ Rights, which became effective in 2003. Migration is a right, and it must be respected according to relating international law.

Narco labs moving to Central America

While making reference to the finding of a “narco lab” in Nicaragua last September, General Julio Cesar Aviles, “chief of the Nicaraguan army,” said that drug producers may seek to install laboratories in the area of Central America. Nicaragua has served as a distribution point for narcotics destined to the U.S. and Europe. Law enforcement agencies have found the new method of the Colombian mafia: they take cocaine base, or paste, from Colombia and have it processed in Central America into pure cocaine, crack or “angel dust,” the drugs with best markets in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Madrid and Barcelona. Six such labs have also been dismantled in the Dominican Republic.

“Fire in a truck with illegals”

The article following that headline in the paper: “A truck that supposedly transported some 30 undocumented persons caught on fire on the north by-pass around kilometer three, seemingly due to a short circuit; city authorities reported that the passengers fled to an unknown destination.” (That was the entire article, other than mentioning the make of the truck.)

El Diario (Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua) 5/17/10

Bloody Juarez

A secondary listing of items in the “Local” section included the following:

“Yesterday, another thirteen persons assassinated.” But that article didn’t include a separate report found about two decapitated victims, at least one of them a city policeman. The victims were dressed in women’s clothing by their killers, who also used a black marker to draw the face of a pig and of a scorpion, plus the message “this is for the ones who go on not believing,” all on the victims’ stomach area.

    ..hmm, a ‘fair’ wage? which would you prefer $16.50 an hour or $2.50? Isn’t that why ‘they’ are here? I mean after ‘we’ took their ‘land’ away in the first place….
    …and all those tons of Marijauna weren’t destined for Mexico City in case you thought that… they were on the way to your sons and daughters whom you’ve educated so well.

  13. Bradwhg Says:

    Mario, I would gladly take that job at a fair wage.

  14. norm9do Says:

    Obama considers himself a worldly person rather than an American president concerned for the country and it’s citizens he is president of.
    His fondest desire is to resolve ALL the worlds problems rather than those in the United States.

    In the past 15 months, he has failed miserably in the U.S. and across the world…..He will not solve Mexico’s internal problems or the illegal immigration across Mexico’s northen border and none should hope for or count on that!

  16. June Says:

    Calderon is in DC right now demanding the keys to the country. He said Arizona’s law criminalizes his people. Well, at last he admits who it is breaking into our country. We have a million legal immigrants coming in every year. Where do they get jobs? We have eight foreign worker visa programs. Where do they get jobs? We have numerous people who land on our shores from religious and political persecution. Where do they get jobs? And last, but not least by far, we have 15 million unemployed Americans. Where do they get jobs? We don’t need illegals. Can this administration be as courageous as President Eisenhower and send them home? I doubt it, but we can keep fighting and trying until Washington learns the meaning of “illegal!”

  17. Mario Says:

    which ‘nice job’ would you like? Cutting the lawns or working in the kitchen?

  18. Wayne Says:

    Dear Mr. President Obama:
    I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

    We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.

    We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

    I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I’m on my way over?

    Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

    1. Free medical care for my entire family.

    2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

    3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English.

    4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

    5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

    6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.

    7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

    8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.

    9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico but I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

    10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

    11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put U. S. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

    12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

    13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

    14. I want to receive free food stamps.

    15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.

    16. I’ll need Income tax credits so although I don’t pay Mexican Taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.

    17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov’t pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.

    18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.

    I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico … I am sure that President Calderon won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

    Thank you so much for your kind help. You’re the man!!!
