The past week in AZ

I'm getting back in the groove of living in a house with lots of hot running water, a washer and dryer, and a fenced-in backyard for the dogs, and unlimited electric power. :-)

I have participated in three Anti-Illegal Alien activities in the past week.

Saturday I spent a few hours at a huge car show handing out fliers educating the Arizona voting public on the intentionally fraudulent Prop 202. The title is "STOP HIRING ILLEGALS." But a YES vote on Prop 202 actually is contrary to what its name suggests. This initiative would intentionally gut Arizona's strong employer sanctions law and allow illegal-alien employers to return to "business as usual." Prop. 202 is being sponsored by the big business and other open-border groups that opposed passage of the state’s immigration reduction law and fought them in the courts. A group of my friends have been fighting hard all summer to stop Prop 202 from passing.

Sunday I joined a dozen or so fellow citizens in a protest in front of the house of Phoenix's Mayor Phil Gordon to express our contempt for his Sanctuary City policies which encourage Illegal Aliens to come to Phoenix. Another Phoenix Police Officer was recently killed by an Illegal Alien drunk driver.......

"Officer Shane Figueroa, 25, was killed early Saturday in a collision southwest of downtown Phoenix. Authorities say the suspect, Salvado Vivas-Diaz, is in the U.S. illegally. He faces charges of manslaughter, aggravated assault and obstructing a criminal investigation.

"As we were interviewing him last night, he advised us that he was an undocumented worker from Mexico," said Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris.

"He has been booked into county jail. We are doing further investigation not only on the accident, but on the background of the individual [as well]."

There are four warrants for Gonzalez's arrest under a different name, two of which are for DUI. He was booked on charges including manslaughter and assault.
Gonzalez suffered minor injuries, while his passenger, described by police as an adult male, was seriously hurt. Court documents said Vivas-Diaz had been deported previously and that he had used different names

Officer Shane Figueroa served less than three years as a Phoenix police officer. He leaves behind a wife and three-month-old daughter."

And on Monday I joined 50 or so Americans who gathered at the Arizona State Capitol to honor Sheriff Joe Arpaio for his efforts in apprehending and deporting Illegal aliens. The rally was sponsored by the National Veterans Coalition. Several people came all the way from California to participate. We originally had planned to walk the 2 miles from the Capitol to the Sheriff's office. But because of the heat and the 50 or so open-border activists waiting for us at the other end, we decided to stay at the Capitol. Our event was capped off with an appearance by Joe the Sheriff himself. Here's some pictures:

On a different note, today I joined the "Dance for Fitness" group in Sun City. It sort of reminded me of my days gone by when I went to "Jazzercise" classes. But "Dance for Fitness" is more like "Jazzercise for old people," like me!! It was fun and I'll probably go back tomorrow, unless I get word of a protest or demonstration I'm needed at.

Prop 202 VOTE NO, NO & HELL NO!
This is a scam !!! It will un do the Employer Sanction bill now in place!!

Arizona has one of the best laws on the books in regards to stopping illegal hiring and now we have BIG BUSINESS (Look at who backs it! The biggest employers of ILLEGAL ALIENS!) trying to deceive everyone so they can write
their own law?
(If passed every case will be unenforceable,and or thrown out of court, you can't fine, that is illegal)
They tried 4 times in court to shut down the current law and LOST, so now they try this!!!

We are joining other Arizonans in an Opposition Campaign to defeat Prop 202 this November 4th in the General Election.

Vote NO on Prop 202

It’s not what they say it is!

May God Protect ALL our innocent children and our boots on the ground who are truly in the line of fire from all terrorist !

United we stand, divided we will lose it all!

That's good you're educating people about the misleading prop and so sad about the officer. Hope your root canal is all healed.
