McCain's reversal on immigration shocks many in the Latino community
Latina Lista ^ | 4/20/10 | Marisa Trevino

Posted on 04/20/2010 12:40:27 PM PDT by pissant

On this 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing when we all should be remembering that hatred has no place in a civilized society, we are confronted with the reality that hatred exists to an even greater degree than 15 years ago, takes all forms and in several instances has resorted to once again, in our country's history, to masquerade as law. The entire nation is waiting to see what happens in Arizona in the next five days. That's how long the governor has to decide what to do with Senate Bill 1070. It's a bill that would make it a state crime to be in the country illegally and require local police to enforce federal immigration laws.

If the bill is signed, it would make Arizona the first state to criminalize undocumented immigrants. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has five days to sign it, veto it or do nothing and allow it to become law.

Needless to say, advocates and sympathizers are staging protests, building websites and even asking President Obama to intervene before such a bill can pass into law.

There is a real fear that if this bill passes it doesn't just emboldened bad cops to abuse their authority but will empower the regular Arizonan, who thinks he doesn't like Latino immigrants, to police his community so as to turn in anyone he thinks is undocumented.

Don't be shocked, lady. He changes his mind all the time. He'll change it again the second he's re-elected. He's funny that way.

As soon as he wins or loses in the primary - McCain will push for amnesty with Lindsay Graham-nesty.

McCain sickens me.

In McCain’s defense, DID THE LATINOS get out the vote for him?

McCain and his supporters will shove their “path to citizenship” down our throats the first chance they get.

Yes, wanting the immigration laws of the U.S. enforced so as to keep the rift-raft out is all about hatred. What a moron.

There is nothing quite so insulting as being lied to by someone who knows that you know they are lying. This is McCain looking us in the face and saying “What are you going to do about it?”

Oh please. It’s called an “election year” and Juan has a challenge for a change. End of story. He’ll go right on selling out the nation and the American people once he’s been re-elected, don’t you worry about that.

McPain will say and/or do ANYTHING to stay in office.

If this passes, it will be interesting to see how Arizona's health care costs decrease (provided this happens before 0bamacare takes effect).

Yeah, the Hispanics are shocked! The Republicans tried to help them, reach out to them, and they stuck their finger in the GOP's eye and voted RAT.

Now, McQueeg is dumping them and they are shocked!

Yeah, I remember reading about Mary Rose.
Had no idea she was Mexican-American.
Ain’t much room for that in my lexicon, though.

In Spain, it would be el necio, but I'm not sure what it would be in Mexico.

In any case, Harold Medina--the bane of the Communist Party--is Mexican for sage.

Mcloon is an accomplished liar and two bit hustler living off a long tarnished past and his wifes money, the GOP’s john kerry.

Once he’s preserved his “rightful place” as the dishonorable senator from Arizona, he’ll turn like the worm he is and start betraying the country with more amnesty and anti-constitutional bills.

Count on it.

Don’t worry, He’s just tacking with today’s breeze. He’ll be back on the amnesty course the moment he’s reelected.

Don’t be shocked, illegal immigrant advocates. McLame doesn’t mean it. He just thinks many GOP voters are stupid enough to believe his head fake here.

Sadly, he may be right...

Thing is, MaLame isn’t really dumping them. He’s just trying to suck up to conservatives in the 11th hour...

“In McCain’s defense, DID THE LATINOS get out the vote for him?”

Doubt it. Certainly the latino intelligensia never gave him any credit. I distinctly remember Geraldo doing an interview during the election wherein he treated the McCain campaign as an anti-immigrant strawman. When it was pointed out to him that McCain was pro-amnesty, it didn’t matter. Geraldo’s point was that no matter what they say, no Republican would ever get any credit on the issue. Which is true, because of people like Geraldo.

Yes, lawmakers are just a bunch of “haters.” When will we, as a civilized society, get past hating murderers, thieves, and such. Hate only begets hate, people. Don’t hate, tolerate!
