Several elements of this new Immigration law in Arizona need to be put on the table. I'm amazed how these issues are not discussed.. Oh and Why do we (progressives) allow the Right-Wing Corporate Media to set the agenda and the talking points? Off topic, just mumbling...
1) Mexicans have one very, very bad habit. One that the rest of American had better not learn. One that is very threatening to US Politicians... Hispanics are not afraid to take to the streets and demonstrate...They stick together as they still have a strong and very admirable family/community mindset. With this new law Hispanics will be very intimidated if they should attempt to publically protest. That's the REAL REASON FOR THIS BILL! Think About IT!
2) Arizona's GOP controlled government, basically the 'State of Maricopa' (Phoenix Area) have done an absolutely, outstandingly miserable job of running the state of Arizona that they need to deflect attention from their ?accomplishments?.
3) Immigration is the choosen 'smokescreen' issue in which to get us fighting amoung ourselves and ignoring the major problems facing this country/world (ie. torture, climate change, stolen elections, illegal wars,... ). Think of it as a replacement for Abortion, Gay Marriage used for that purpose in previous elections.
