RAIDS = BLATANT PERSECUTION! Join the fight against HEARTLESS, ambush ICE Raids! For many who are not well-informed, or perhaps uninterested in immigration issues, it is because they think the situation for immigrants is simply: you get caught ,you get told to go home. NO! People are being abused,bullied, terrorized, permanently scarred. Their lives made into a living hell by those who claim to act in the name of “PATRIOTISM” , those who claim they are only looking to protect the laws. In reality it is not patriotism, it’s CLEAR-CUT PREJUDICE! What it really is, it’s those who are filled with a SENSE OF SUPREMACY, ANIMOSITY , & who believe it is their given right to carry out twisted acts that will lead to their idea of “JUSTICE”. The government loves to approach the HISPANIC PUBLIC for two things : to APPEASE it, and to look for its support when needed, like during ELECTIONS. We do our part by: being patient,being cooperative; but then after giving them support they renege , turn a def ear to our problems, & carelessly place them in LIMBO. “We’re working on it” they say. Well, whether talks or plans are in the works or whether legislation takes time , we don’t give a care!! Do something NOW!! We know that it’s within your power! The government should not allow ANIMALISTIC PRACTICES such as raids to take place. Sometimes it seems like the nation is regressing in a major way. One of the reasons why prejudice, hate, and ignorance is making a “comeback” (as if it ever totally went away) is because the government is allowing it to be so with their passive attitude. Why aren’t they promoting respect and togetherness for our country? They’re too busy talking about the same thing over and over again not fixing a darn thing, while ignoring other important situations going on! Allowing for WASTE OF TAX DOLLARS and excessive power to be handed to authority figures who are perpetrating the senseless abuse.
September 5 and 6, 2009:
“While Sheriff Arpaio utilized most of his resources for an anti-immigrant crime sweep in South Phoenix,
African American’s were victimized by white supremacist vandalism in Fountain Hills. Sheriff deputies put a white male sited for extreme DUI back on the streets of Mesa because they had no transport available.He was later arrested the same day driving 120 MPH by Police.”- Humanleague002
