Below you will see a speech by Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon at a Cesar Chavez luncheon. In this speech he says that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is "locking up brown people for having broken tail lights". He also says that illegal immigration is a race issue and it is a shame that this long after Cesar Chavez we are still battling with this "race issue".
This mayor is a race baiting piece of crap. Full stop.
Mayor Phil Gordon is running a sanctuary city in Phoenix and using the race card to allow it to continue. In the speech he also says that the police should be going for real criminals, dangerous criminals, not illegal aliens who are breaking the law. I would like to know what other laws that Mayor Phil Gordon would like to have ignored? Should we ignore speeders? Should we ignore drunk drivers, since they're not committing a serious crime? Should we not lock up drug dealers who aren't violent?
He also says that "non-Hispanic" people in the audience should stand up in favor of ignoring laws cracking down on illegal aliens.
I do know one thing though, Cesar Chavez was opposed to illegal immigration and uncontrolled legal immigration because it drove down wages for the legal immigrants in this country working in the fields. To Mayor Phil Gordon - and all of those who keep using the name of Cesar Chavez when talking about illegal immigration - you are idiots who have no clue about what you are talking about. Do a little research into who you are celebrating rather than just picking a "brown leader" and imposing your beliefs on him. For that is the most racist thing of all.
Seeing Red AZ had this to say:
Obviously, there is a job to be done. Gordon endorsed Arpaio in his last election bid. Now, with his own political future gleaming on the horizon, Gordon is looking toward a new and growing constituency. If only he could figure out a way to get illegals on the voting rosters, he could expand his sanctuary city policies and really place Arizona on the map - as a sanctuary state.
And Gordon also made claims that if Arpaio continues his crackdown that Hispanics may become violent. Sheriff Arpaio over the Easter weekend sent out deputies to arrest loitering day laborers who were committing "petty crimes" in front of businesses and generally being a nuisance.
Paul Giblin at Freedom Blogging reports this:
Sheriff’s deputies patrolled the area, issued traffic citations and arrested illegal immigrants they came across. Gordon said he hopes Arpaio will notify Phoenix Police officials before conducting similar operations in the future.
“The sheriff has concurrent jurisdiction – we certainly acknowledge that – but for whatever reason, the communication in advance and the coordination in advance has not occurred and I’m very concerned about the safety of his officers and our officers,” Gordon said ...
The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office action also could be turning the Hispanic community against law enforcement in general, Gordon said.
Well if the "Hispanic community" in general is a bunch of criminals that may be the case, but the reality is that the majority of Hispanics legally in this country or citizens are not criminals. For Gordon to lump the whole "Hispanic community" in with criminals and miscreants is the height of racism. In essence he is saying "brown people will revolt if you arrest the criminals among them, because they are all criminals or sympathetic to them."
And one more commentary from Liberty's Apothecary that sums it up
To add pandering insult to his hypocrisy, Gordon told a supportive group of Hispanics at a luncheon commemorating Cesar Chavez that Arpaio’s actions “could endanger police” and that he should “stop rounding up Hispanics who commit traffic violations and instead pursue ‘dangerous criminals’.” Cheers and applause erupted in the audience.
Amnesia and selective memory are two of the critical capacities of the liberal mind, and Gordon now proves he is the master of both.

This is the sort of politician you get when the only requirement to vote, or run for office, is having a pulse. We don't let people drive without earning a license first, and politicians are way more dangerous than cars. So, should we require minimal standards be set for those who wish to run for office, or those who wish to vote? Or both?

Lets say it is a race issue. No don't do that!! Well, just for the sake of argument. If Latino illegal aliens can march by the hundreds of thousands, with signs that say "kill the gringo", "go back to Europe," "this is occupied territory", the border crossed us, we didn't cross the border", then maybe the Mayors right. Illegal aliens and their corresponding activist groups,LULAC, MALDEF, MECHA,LA RAZA, etc. etc.--have made it a solid racial issue, so therefore, don't expect others not to react, and react hard. This is the United States of America, not Mexico.

This is why our country is going to hell.
We are witnessing the fall of America due to jackass
politicians like Phil Gordon.
Immigration laws are anything but racists.

Fighting the illegal immigration invasion at a state level is not enough? Law enforcement are under attack by special interest groups like La Raza, ACLU, Southern Poverty League and a whole host of pro-immigrant zealots?
State laws are great, but alas they do not go far enough?
Everybody who cares about jobs for American citizens and permanent residents should applaud Federal "SAVE ACT!" Go and read about it and you decide? Not the retorical and lies from the special interest groups. Behind this powerful influence to promote the unfettered illegal cheap labor into our nation, is the the globalist elites. The globalists want to eradicate national borders and want to deny our sovereignty similar to the chaos now progressing in the European Union. England, France and other European countries have been devastated by the free movement of cheap labor from poor lands. You should go and read the immigration nightmare happening across the Atlantic. Do not read it in our national press, because much of it is suppressed. Read European newspapers that do not hide the raw truth, that is evidence enough.
If you care about future jobs for your children, your language and the liberties of the U.S. Constitution, we must begin by enacting THE SAVE ACT. It will amplify the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli Immigration Control act. The SAVE ACT is not perfect, but its the best we have before the new President enacts yet another AMNESTY.
If people just keep bickering amongst each other and don't put their WORDS where their MOUTHS are, nothing will be done! It will be far too late in the next year, when either party president enacts new laws.

I hope the people of Phoenix will vote the pandering Mayor Gordon out of office in the next election. While they're at it, along with other AZ voters, please vote out JOHN AMNESTY MCCAIN! Re: The SAVE ACT, I read that McAmnesty recently worked directly to derail it from being voted on. He actively lobbyed his fellow Republicans to NOT sign the discharge petition so that it cannot be VOTED ON! He's a traitor and he's our GOP choice for president..just pathetic. Read about it on www.numbersusa.com Please sign up for Numbersusa if you haven't already and blast your elected officials with free faxes. Thanks. p.s. Thank God for great sheriff's like Sheriff Joe Arpaio who refuses to pander to the lawbreaking criminal illegal alien crowd. He is a person of great integrity and I hope that he runs for national office soon...how about now!

Neither political parties can be trusted when it comes to the illegal immigration occupation of our country. More states are trying to enact strict laws for enforcement against predator employers. However, THE SAVE ACT has the teeth and packs the punch, to halt this pestilence overwhelming our wilting economy. Very few Senators and Representatives have THE PEOPLE' S best interest in mind. The Democratic hierarchy have specifically been pandering to special interest groups, and very few have offered to co-author THE FEDERAL SAVE ACT.
Keep calling your Democrat Representative today, toll free numbers include 1-877-851-6437 and 1-866-220-0044, or call toll 1-202-224-3121 AND REGISTER YOUR OUTRAGE at ongoing efforts to keep our country from enforcing its immigration laws!
