Immigrants protest employer sanctions law
East Valley Tribune (Phoenix) ^ | September 5, 2007 | Meghan Getz, Eddie Trevizo

Posted on 09/05/2007 6:39:05 PM PDT by yorkie

Immigrant workers left their jobs Wednesday and lined Valley streets holding signs with slogans such as “I am your cook,” and “Sorry your house isn’t clean.”

Motorists passing by yelled racial slurs and other phrases such as “Go back to Mexico!” But the protesters stood their ground.

“The people out here represent the thousands of families who live in the shadows of fear,” said Joel Aguilar, one of about 30 protesters who showed up near Main Street and Alma School Road in Mesa.

The Mesa demonstration was one of many organized by Immigrantes Sin Fronteras, or Immigrants Without Borders, against a new Arizona law that threatens employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants with permanent loss of their business licenses.

Protesters have lined Valley streets daily during a nine-day campaign that will end Saturday.

Guess they ‘forgot’ one word in the headline: “ILLEGAL”

Doubt any immigrants left their jobs today.

Probably a lot of illegal aliens did, though.

“The people out here represent the thousands of families who live in the shadows of fear,”

Kind of hard to be hiding in the shadows if you're out in the middle of the street waving banners. Thanks, but no thanks. I can clean my own house and cook dinner for my family so I don't need any of them.

Oh, I've finally figured it out. It's ICE that's hiding in the shadows afraid to do their job.

I was wondering myself, thanks. One does get a bit sick of their melodramatic spew sometimes.

I spent over three hours today, scrubbing down my kitchen - cupboards, appliances and floors. Sure I could have called the local Merry Maids - but I don’t want strangers coming into my home, who will know the location of every window, door and nook and craney. Ever again.

Especially when they don’t speak English.

How about something like "Criminals protest law enforcement." Seems to fit this situation better.

I heard today that Congress (no clue if the House or Senate) is going to start debating the STRIVE Act tomorrow. Anyone else know anything about this. I have looked everywhere and can’t find anything on it.
I know what the STRIVE Act just can’t find anything on the debate on it.

I have an idea, that everyone could get behind.

Bumper Stickers saying "REAL AMERICAN MEN ========="."

Fill in the blank:

DO THEIR OWN COOKING

MOW THEIR OWN LAWNS

FIX THEIR OWN CARS

DO THEIR OWN YARDWORK

DO THEIR OWN PAINTING

DO THEIR OWN LANDSCAPING

DO THEIR OWN STUCCOING

DO THEIR OWN PLUMBING REPAIR

DO THEIR OWN TREE TRIMMING

DO THEIR OWN LEAF BLOWING

10 to 1 American WOMENFOLK will like these kinds of stickers, too, and this new American Man's Attitude to take back our country by doing things we used to do ourselves rather than outsource it to invaders.

The presumptious nerve of "I AM YOUR COOK", standing on a traffic median.

A comparable sticker such as "ILLEGALS OUT!" on the car would also get the point across.

One of 30 protesters? I would venture to guess that this is a smaller count than the illegal family that Sr. Aguilar has in the Valley of the Sun. Not much of a protest showing.

While I concur with a lot of the comments here, the important thing to see here isn’t the illegals or any of the supposed “quotes” printed in that article.

IMHO what needs to be focused on are the self-appointed “journalists” who cooked up this story. Do you really believe the oh so perfect quotes are really from illegals? That might be, but I’d bet $100.00 that most everything in that article was custom crafted by the, ahem, “journalists”. I have come to believe that about 60-80% of the content in these stories is fake (but accurately Ratherized) and is written by Libs who create stories and narratives that they think SHOULD be true, and since they’re doing the lords work, whats the harm?

The purpose of such articles - At least one important purpose - Is to get the reader to focus their anger on the illegals and forget the central role of the activist journalist who insert themselves into the middle of this/

IMO The illegals are the criminals, but the Leftists “journalists” are the enemy.

I do all of those things except stuccoing (don’t have any) and leaf blowing (I prefer a rake).

Perhaps I should hold a sign on my street corner saying ‘I am your taxpayer.’

““The people out here represent the thousands of families who live in the shadows of fear,””

And why do they live in fear of the law? Ah yes because they break the law. Personally I want dealers to fear the cops. I want stereo thiefs to fear the cops. And I want those who violate our national sovereignty to fear the cops.

That is the Lou Dobbs question I want him to air.

Do those who are in the US but not under legal status, have any "rights" to engage in political activity, (such as demonstrations, rallies, boycotts, addressing city councils or other community action), to influence the American federal and state/local legal system??

““The people out here represent the thousands of families who live in the shadows of fear,” “

They should always live in fear. I'm always happy to hear that illegal aliens live in fear and tell their friends in Mexico it's too much hassle and stress to come here. Next to deportation the next best thing is that illegals are living in fear, that they don't have a carefree and happy existence here

They have no respect for our laws so I have no respect for them
