Arizona Communist Calls on Party Support to Fight Immigration Bill

Cross posted from KeyWiki Blog

Leading Tuscon Communist Party USA member, Carolyn Trowbridge has appealed for Party help in fighting Arizona's new "get tough on illegal immigration" Bill (SB 1070).

The Bill which mandates law enforcement officers to check a suspects immigration status when there is good cause to do so, has drawn anger from the US left, from President Barack Obama down.

Writing in the Peoples World of April 26, Trowbridge who triples as chair of the Communist Party's Women's Commission , vice president of the Arizona ACLU and as a leading immigration activist, expressed her anger at the new law.
We are tired of being the laughing stock of the U.S., we are tired of being threatened, we are more than tired, WE ARE REALLY PISSED OFF. And we want the rest of you to also be pissed off. One reason our legislature and governor think they can get away with this crap is that no one else in the country is paying attention or cares.
Trowbridge went on to compare l the Bill, which merely seeks to enforce already existing federal guidelines, with Apartheid and even "ethnic cleansing".
So we can use some loud voices in support of the national economic boycott of Arizona called by Raul Grijalva. Already the American Immigration Lawyers Association has dropped plans to hold their convention here. If you know of any other organizations who are planning events here, if you know people who are planning vacations (the Grand Canyon is fabulous but stay away until it is safe to come), moving a business, buying anything from us (especially citrus and other agricultural items), tell them to stop. We are fighting against our own apartheid, our own flirtation with ethnic cleansing.
Trowbridge echoed the calls of far left Arizona Congressman Raul Grijalva for economic sanctions against her own state.
Economic sanctions are appropriate. We listened when our brothers and sisters in South Africa called on the people of the world for economic sanctions because they knew that theirs was a greater goal; a little suffering and struggle would yield justice and freedom. We sustained an economic boycott here in Arizona when an earlier racist governor of the state of Arizona canceled our Martin Luther King Day; we won that struggle when the folks organizing the Super Bowl said they would never hold an event here in Arizona until there was a reversal. And we can win again.
Lastly, Trowbridge appealed to comrades across the nation to support the Arizona Party in its campaign against (SB 1070).
We need to know you have our back. We have more crazies that we deserve in Arizona at the moment. We need your support and we need an organized call from every state for real, honest, humane, and just Immigration Reform
Its going to be a long hot Arizona summer.

Stupid witch! Sorry, wrong consonant.

The Arizona bill merely duplicates existing Federal statutes that the coward in chief won't enforce. It is sort of like having a Dom DeLouise character for your sheriff, so you have to enforce the law yourself if you don't want to be shot by the runaway bandits coming across the border.

However, to re-elect the limp wrists in Congress, the progressives need all the illiterate English support they can find. I suggest they try the High Schools - the progressives have been very successful in making those institutions turn out illiterates.

I thought true libertarians would oppose this authoritarian police state law.

Why on earth would a libertarian oppose perfectly reasonable immigration laws Cameron?

Confusing Libertarian with Anarchist sentiment may be common, but the former merely believes in less and non-controlling government, perhaps more local, while the latter denies the validity of any central government and would leave NZ to the mercies of the Argentineans, let's say; hehehe

The Arizona Law is merely the Federal US Law translated into local jurisdiction language. Note that the showing of papers issue was actually enacted into FEDERAL law by FDR in 1940, so it is no AZ phenomenon, but begun in wartime by the classic statist. But the progressives would rather you not know the facts so that they can shout about something, i.e., tangentially prevaricate, as if their direct lies were something new.

I left a comment - I don't have your back and that we don't want socialism here. Go to Mexico and see how fairly an illegal is treated. Plus they don't respect the law or our property as they through bottles at the police and painted swastikas with refried beans on the capital.
AZ is happy that we will have less people here due to illegals leaving, and we will have less tourist traffic for those that boycott!

I live in Arizona and what I find interesting is that they had to bus protesters in from California to protest at our Capitol building.

The majority of the people here are in favor of this bill and when it is all said and done, other states will applaud us and follow suit I am sure.

The racist issues are astounding to me. The deal is - as soon as a person is stopped and can't speak English, that is the first clue they might be illegal. It doesn't matter what color they are. If you are a citizen of the USA, you must take the citizenship test in English. I know of someone who could not pass the test because they could not speak the language fluently enough.

I just found a quote from Saul Alinsky that perfectly explains why the left is so upset about this new law:

"The ninth rule of the ethics of means and ends is that any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition as being unethical."

It should also be remembered that "racism" and other such gratuitous accusations are how the left deals with undeniable truths. If they cannot find legitimate fault with something you are doing, they drag out the "racism" canard. It is effective because refuting it requires that you prove a negative, that you are not a racist, and it is logically impossible to prove a negative. No matter what someone says or does they still MIGHT be a racist. So the left throws this out whenever they get stuck and watch their opponents twist themselves into knots trying to prove the accusation false.

Wha? She calls herself an Immigrant acitivist? She needs to find immigrants because the people she is defending are ILLEGAL ALIENS.
ILLEGAL IS THE LAW AND NOT A RACE. Let them live off of her 'dime' and not ours. She can pay their way. I do not wants to pay any ILLEGAL ALIENS way.
And the Mexican president is behind all this because ILLEGAL ALIENS send all their 'under the table money' gross up to 125% in value, back to Mexico. So how does this benefit America? NOT.

THIS IS NOT A NEW LAW! It's an ancient law that is FINALLY being Enforced out of dire need to salvage the AZ economy and protect the citizens from OUTLAWS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS ILLEGAL ALIENS who do not respect the laws of this land.

Trowbridge is mistaken. Arizona is not a laughingstock to the rest of us; it's an example we wish we could emulate. In my state (Washington) taxpayer money supports in-state college tuition rates for the children of illegal workers, as well as premium pay for bilingual department secretaries at state colleges. We need some Arizona attitude up here in the Northwest!
