Arizona protest
AP via YouTube

In this AP clip covering reactions to Arizona SB 1070 throughout the state last weekend, one supporter, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, says, “I think the people of Arizona are fed up. They’re tired of the violence.” But which “people,” one might wonder, is he talking about? And, for that matter, what violence?  —KA

I live in Mexico Now 20 years, Here Mexico you have to have papers at all times, and police can and will stop you anytime,anywhere, and anyplace. Locals born in Mexico get a IF ID card, no card.. no work,no vote, drive, no school, nada, nada. Foreighners have to have Passport or work papers at all TIMEs Foreigners have NO RIGHTS, even if married or working in Mexico. Mexican law says GUILTY until proven innocent, Yes opposite to my 20 years in Hawaii, only those who are Born in Mexico have rights.Great Job Govenor of Arizona for making the Feds/Obama, and many others angry, great strtegic move, the feds did NADA for 10 years, GOOD Move, Mexico has the highest murder rate world/wide, averge education grade 6, So are you surprised….Iam Not, Mexican immigration Laws, rules and regs are much more stringent, harsh that USA immigration. Here no one has rights, their is nothing to be proud of in Mexico, hopefully that will change.

Why is no one talking about SB1070 sponsor Russell Pearce’s association with noted neo-Nazi JT Ready and the National Socialist Movement (NSM)?  It takes less than 30 seconds to run an internet search and uncover articles and video footage of Ready marching with the NSM in Arizona as recently as November of last year.  How much more damning evidence is needed than the author of a bill which legitimizes racial profiling literally rubbing elbows with unabashed racists and fascists?  How is this not national news?
