Immigration Talk with a Mexican American (ITWAMA)
Upcoming Blogs for Tuesday, May 4, 2010

1. Police say Good Samaritan Robert Krentz was NOT murdered by an illegal immigrant as previously suspected. Clues lead police to believe the murder was committed by an American.

2. BOYCOTT: Baseball is boycotting Arizona! Latinos are superstars in Baseball, yet these superstars are in fear of walking the streets of Phoenix for fear of being racially profiled. See why these athletes are Boycotting Phoenix and insisting the All Star Game be moved OUT OF PHOENIX in 2011.

3. Arpaio and his masked goons refuse to lay low and last Friday/Saturday, continued Racial Profiling sweeps in W. Phoenix and racial profile 25 American Citizens. Refuses to release stats on those in custody. With such controversy in AZ, now backpeddling off running for governor.

The real flaw in the logic here is that some folks believe that the violence and illegal activity is due to undocumented workers. In reality, violent crime is down in Arizona but the media and the hard-liners in AZ make sure that if an undocumented worker is involved, it's big news, but the facts are that violent crime has slowed in the last few years in AZ. The law passed isn't going to stop the real problem which are drug runners and smugglers, It isn't even going to slow them down.

There was a great article in the LA Times featuring an interview with an ex-Phoenix cop who had to deal with these issues. (

And he said it very plainly after a white cop was killed: "I told people that it's not whites or Hispanics who killed Marc," he said back then. "It's drug-dealing cop killers. The issue isn't ethnicity — it's crime and drugs."

And this is the real problem with this law is that it doesn't address the real issue, at all.

Your Guide to the Arizona Boycott: Porn, Sky Mall, and P.F. Chang's

Some excerpts ( Please go to the above link to see the Humor and laugh out loud ) :

So you want to protest Arizona's stupid new immigration law by boycotting the state, like San Francisco did. Okay. Can you live without Sky Mall, P.F. Chang's, domain-name registration and internet pornography?

Arizona, the refried-bean swastika state, has made it legal for the police to detain anyone on suspicion of being Mexican. This is a remarkably stupid and harmful law, even for the state that gave us Barry Goldwater, and in response, some people are recommending a boycott of Arizona.

That doesn't sound too bad! We have effectively been boycotting Arizona for years by not thinking about it, or going to it, ever, so this should be pretty easy. And you're aided by the fact that most Arizona businesses suck. Even so, you should cross-check our list to ensure you are fully compliant (all info courtesy the never-wrong internet scholarly location "Wikipedia"):

Brookings Institution : Arizona's Demography and Age Gap : 43 percent of its child population is white compared with 83 percent for seniors - Nevada, California, Texas, New Mexico, and Florida are not that far behind

More than half the babies born in Arizona are non-White. In fact that is true for the Whole United States :

Will Arizona Be America’s Future?

Some excerpts :

Over the past two decades the state has seen its Latino population grow by 180 percent as its racial composition shifted from 72 to 58 percent white.

Arizona’s swift Hispanic growth has been concentrated in young adults and children, creating a “cultural generation gap” with largely white baby boomers and older populations, the same demographic that predominates in the recent Tea Party protests. A shorthand measure for this cultural generation gap in a state is the disparity between children and seniors in their white population shares. Arizona leads the nation on this gap at 40 (where 43 percent of its child population is white compared with 83 percent for seniors). But the states of Nevada, California, Texas, New Mexico, and Florida are not that far behind.
