Rep. Loretta Sanchez on Countdown Re: Arizona Immigration Law

This interview happened a few days ago and we simply have not had the chance to get around to post about it. On Friday April 23rd Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the state’s immigration bill into law. It is considered to be among the toughest legislation in the nation.

(CNN) What does the Arizona law do?

Arizona’s law orders immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there’s reason to suspect they’re in the United States illegally. It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant laborers or knowingly transport them.

    Great LAW. We should have it here in California- Liberal attitudes and policies along the lines of unrestricted illegal immigration or amnesty, no off shore drilling, restrictive CARB and other anti business and anti revenue bills,continues to push California down in it’s ability to support it’s infrastructure, people and pay it’s bills.

    The law will help to end the job discrimination against Black Americans, Hispanic Americans and immigrants who are here legally.

    Children are Watching

    by stopdainsanity2

    When I entered kindergarten – I was put into a class for the mentally retarded. Because my skin was brown my teacher assumed I did not speak English and required special bilingual support which was not available at the time. Yes – I was a Mexican-American citizen child.

    It literally took 2 weeks for my parents to force the school to place me in the mainstream kindergarten class — even though I could respond to questions in English. At the time if was easier for frustrated- overworked teachers (not bad people), who felt school district should have a place for spanish speaking children to learn (reasonable), to send me to the special needs class – no questions asked – based on my skin color. Although the error was corrected, as a child I never lost the feeling I was not welcomed and somehow my rights as a citizen were not equal to those of white americans. Be careful – children are watching.
