    On Friday it was reported that the Yuma Recorder’s office was checking the 3,000 last minute voter registration forms turned in by the far left Mi Familia Vota organization. The recorder’s office found that already more than 65% of the registrations were invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc. Mi Familia Vota is a SEIU sub-organization. It is just as “non-partisan” as ACORN was before documented fraudulent behaviors finally killed it.Yuma County is located in Arizona’s 7th District. Currently, far left Arizona boycotter Rep. Raul Grijalva is caught in a tight race with...

    24 minutes ago: WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court ruled Friday that Arizona may require voters to provide photo IDs when they cast their ballots next month. The justices cautioned that they were not issuing a ruling on the constitutionality of Arizona's law. "As we have noted, the facts in these cases are hotly contested," the court said in an unsigned five-page order. The ruling merely allows the Nov. 7 election to proceed with the photo ID law in place. Federal courts still will have to resolve a lawsuit contending that the law will disenfranchise numerous voters, particularly the elderly and...

    Regarding Congressman Jim Kolbe's decision not to run for reelection, in a word, "Hallelujah." When someone retires or passes away, we try to say something nice about that person, we downplay his negatives and point out his positives. I would like to do the same for Congressman Jim Kolbe, but I really don't have the time to do that much research, other then to say, I wholeheartedly approve of his decision to leave Congress. I'm sure Kolbe will be missed by Mexican President Vincente Fox, he is one of the best members of Congress Mexico has ever had in the...

    Russell Pearce for Governor Like many other Arizona politicians, Governor Napolitano is a Janet come lately in addressing the problems facing Arizona that are caused by illegal immigration and a unsecured border. Clearly, the popularity of Proposition 200 has motivated many politicians, including Napolitano, to stop ignoring the issue and get on board the illegal immigration bandwagon. Governor Napolitano, and presidential want-to-be, Senator John McCain, certainly want to down-play their strong opposition to passage of Prop. 200. Many Republican politicians, who wouldn't touch the illegal immigration issue before passage of Proposition 200, are now championing the issue. These Janet, and,...

    When Mexicos Foreign Secretary, Luis Ernesto Derbez made his threats against Arizona on behalf of the illegal aliens invading that state, it was no coincidence that his first plan of attack would involve Americas courts. Derbez thoroughly understands that Arizonas new law resulted from a ballot initiative, Proposition 200, roundly supported by the voters. Thus it would be difficult to motivate the Arizona Legislature to act in a manner so blatantly in opposition to the will of the people. So Derbez is focusing on the latest and greatest method of thwarting that popular will, and if successful he will have...

    PHOENIX - Attorney General Terry Goddard has blocked the state from requiring identification from voters in the upcoming elections despite voter approval of Proposition 200. Goddard said the rules crafted by Secretary of State Jan Brewer to comply with the initiative do not adequately deal with the problem that some people may not have the kind of ID that the regulations require. He said the problem is especially acute for Native Americans living in rural areas who cannot produce what Brewer said is necessary.

    DENVER -- For state Rep. David Schultheis, the choice is clear: The Colorado legislature can pass his bill preventing illegal immigrants from receiving non-emergency state and county services.Or legislators can watch the proposal ignite an Arizona-style political wildfire as it goes before the voters as a November 2006 ballot initiative."The public really wants this," Mr. Schultheis, a Republican who represents northern Colorado Springs, said yesterday. "We are going to do everything we can to get this before the public in some form or another."

    By far the most dramatic menace to this nations future and safety emanates from the cauldrons of Islamist extremism. But Americans are also in danger of losing their country on another front. A far larger incursion into the American homeland is being carried out via its southern border. Though an ongoing problem for many years, its instigators now apparently believe they are ready to take their attack to the next level. During a January 28 radio interview, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez has threatened the State of Arizona with legal action through the international courts in order to overturn...

    MEXICO CITY - Mexico may turn to international courts in an effort to block a new Arizona law limiting services to illegal immigrants, Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said Wednesday. He said in a radio interview that Mexico might take such a step after it has exhausted all possibilities under U.S. law to halt Proposition 200. "We are seeking all the legal opportunities that exist, first using the legal capacities of the United States itself and ... if that does not work, bringing it to international tribunals," Derbez said. advertisement He did not specify to which international bodies Mexico could...

    Opponents of a voter-approved Arizona immigration law are opening a new front in their fight against the law, arguing that the measure will virtually eliminate voter registration drives and place other obstacles in front of minority voters. A civil rights group and Democratic legislators are separately asking the U.S. Justice Department to block implementation of new election requirements imposed by the law, approved as Proposition 200 on the state's Nov. 2 ballot. "It hurts minorities, particularly Hispanics and Native Americans that do have a language barrier," said Rep. Steve Gallardo, D-Phoenix. The move comes after the Mexican American Legal Defense...

    The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, whose attempt to block implementation of an Arizona initiative prohibiting illegal aliens from receiving public benefits was denied by a federal judge, will appeal the decision this week to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The initiative, known as Proposition 200, passed Nov. 2 with 56 percent of the vote. It requires state and local government employees to verify the immigration status of those seeking public benefits and to report to federal immigration authorities any applicant who is in violation of U.S. immigration law. It also subjects...

    TUCSON - A federal judge on Wednesday lifted an order barring Proposition 200 from becoming law, clearing the way for state, county and municipal employees to immediately start reporting to immigration authorities suspected undocumented immigrants seeking public benefits. U.S. District Judge David Bury's decision allowed Gov. Janet Napolitano to issue an executive order enacting the controversial voter-approved legislation Wednesday afternoon. The decision left some municipal officials across the Valley and state scrambling to prepare workers who will be required to ask all who apply for public welfare benefits for proof of citizenship. Attorneys for the Mexican American Legal Defense and...

    (Phoenix, Ariz.) - U.S. District Judge David C. Bury Wednesday denied the preliminary injunction request to bar the implementation of Proposition 200, which was adopted by Arizona voters on November 2. The State can now move forward to implement the new statute, Attorney General Terry Goddard said. The Attorney Generals opinion issued on November 12 clarified that the state and local benefits subject to the verification requirements of Proposition 200 are limited to Arizona Revised Statues Title 46 (relative to welfare payments). Goddards opinion provides guidance to State employees. The Attorney Generals Office will continue to work with client agencies...

    But it simply doesn't matter any more in America what the people want. The people want real immigration policy. They want real immigration enforcement. They want real borders. They want citizenship to mean something again. However, the brown shirts of the bench have other ideas. They don't think Americans are smart enough to know what's really good for them. So they use the courts to stifle the will of the people and pervert the law of the land. Now the laws are written not by citizen-legislators, but by high priests in black robes who have little or no accountability to...

    Arizona voters have spoken, and now the state's Hispanic community, and state employees, are waiting to find out what Proposition 200 will mean for them. The controversial ballot initiative, which passed Tuesday, requires individuals to show proof of citizenship when registering to vote and applying for public benefits - but it's not clear exactly what public benefits are included. Some people say the initiative targets only state welfare benefits, but others say it means everything from immunizations to water service and fire protection, the Arizona Republic reported Tuesday. State and local workers will be required to give immigration officials the...

    Arizona voters yesterday approved a measure to restrict state aid to illegal immigrants. Official returns showed 54 percent of the state's voters in favor of Proposition 200, formally titled the Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act, with 91 percent of precincts reporting. The measure was promoted by supporters as a way to curtail fraud by requiring proof of immigration status when obtaining certain government services. It would punish state workers who looked the other way.

    There's much contorversy in Arizona over a ballot initiative, Proposition 200 , that would require proof of citizenship when registering to vote, proof of identity when actually voting, and proof of legal status when applying for government benefits (those benefits not mandated by federal law, like emergency room care). All the usual suspects are against it, including big business, big labor, and big religion, along with the Democratic governor, "Republican" John McCain, and of course, The Wall Street Journal. So imagine my surprise when I read in yesterday's Arizona Republic that Mexico has had these very requirements in law for...
