Charlotte activists protest Arizona law and 287(g)


Local immigration activists and supporters will march from Charlotte's Marshall Park to the Mecklenburg County jail tomorrow to protest the Mecklenburg County sheriff's 287(g) program and a new Arizona state law that criminalizes illegal immigration.

The rally will begin at 11 a.m. It's one of many such protests around the country that have stolen the spotlight from many other issues this week.

The Arizona law defines illegal immigration as trespassing and allows local law enforcement agencies to question people they suspect of being undocumented.

On Thursday, protesters rallied outside Wrigley Field in Chicago, where the Arizona Diamondbacks were playing the Cubs. One congressman called for Major League Baseball to pull next year's All-Star game out of Arizona.

Opponents of the law say it will encourage racial profiling, break up families, and harm communities by making illegal immigrants fearful of co-operating with police investigating crimes.

Ruben Campillo, N.C. director for Reform Immigration for America, sees the Arizona law as
an extension of 287(g), which allows local law enforcement to place arrested illegal immigrants into deportation proceedings. He said its another example of local governments overstepping their roles to confront an issue that is really the responsibility of the federal government.

Supporters of the law in Arizona say it's not about race, but rules. And that the state was essentially forced to confront the issue because of the federal government's failure to act.

A recent Rasmussen poll indicated 70 percent of likely voters in Arizona support the intent of a law authorizing police to check people they suspect of being illegal immigrants.

According to the Arizona Republic, in the past week, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's office said it received 5,186 calls in favor of the bill, 2,006 against.

Idiots, my only hope is they march in front of a fast moving train and end the misery the law abiding folks of America have to deal with when it comes to these people touting rights for those here illegally.

Wow Franco, so they are protesting the new program that criminalizes illegal immigration. I always thought that illegal immigration was illegal(against the law). Im not sure what you are reporting here. You must support this kind of behavior. I sure hope CMPD takes advantage of this opportunity to round up a few illegals. Really Franco, you have outdone yourself with this article.

I hope North Carolina starts to enforce the law of the state and put an end to illegals getting any services that my tax dollars support. And yes, that includes health care, education, unemployment, social security, food stamps, public housing and the like. They are illegal and should be deported when and whenever they are found, be it at the school, the hospital, the apartment complex, on a construction job, in a factory, at Wal Mart or on the street. If we made the country unpleasant for them then the hugh influx of illegals would dwindle. But if all we do is to cater to their rights, can you say oxymoron.
If you could go to a country and get all the benefits that the illegals get of course you would continue to come.
It is not illegal for them to march and neither is it illegal for ICE to attend the rally. Where is immigration during these events anyhow. How about them doing their job.

This is what community agitating is all about. I know that various union groups are behind these protests. Who do you think makes all those printed signs and distributes them all over the country? Pay attention to what is printed on their signs, you will notice a similarity to those around the country and around the world where unions are currently agitating.

The AZ law reads precisely like the Federal law. The only exception is that AZ chooses to enforce their law. It is unbelievable what out right lies people will tell in the media and in the White House. Our media, including the Observer are no longer "watchdogs", they are lapdogs. Our national media is the same as Pravda under Soviet control. Our president is a major league liar and professional agitator. If he says he has a problem with this law, why doesn't he take issue with the federal law, they are the same.

One Congressman called for MLB to pull the All-Star game from AZ. The news here is its only one, a Hispanic Congressman pandering to his base. What if the Diamondbacks make to the World Series, will they not be allowed to play?

Just guessing that most of these "protestors" don't know this story:
As you know, one of the local ranchers was murdered in Douglas two weeks ago. His funeral is tomorrow. I received three messages similar to the one below from different officers within the Rangers and law enforcement.

Yesterday afternoon I talked to another rancher near us who is a friend of ours and whose great grandfather started their ranch here in 1880. These are good people. He told me what really happened out at the Krentz ranch and what you won't read in the papers. The Border Patrol is afraid of starting a small war between civilians here and the drug cartels in Mexico.

Bob Krentz was checking his water like he does every evening and came upon an illegal who was lying on the ground telling him he was sick. Bob called the Border Patrol and asked for a medical helicopter evac. As he turned to go back to his ATV he was shot in the side. The round came from down and angled up so they know the shooter was on the ground. Bob's firearm was in the ATV so he had no chance. Wounded he called the Cochise County Sheriff and asked for help. Bleeding in the lungs he called his brother but the line was bad so he called his wife but again the line was bad.

Several ranchers heard the radio call and drove to his location. Bob was dead by this time. The ranchers tracked the shooter 8 miles back towards Mexico and cornered him in a brushy draw. This was all at night. The Sheriff and Border Patrol arrived and told them not to go down and engage the murderer. They went around to the back side and if you can believe it the assassin managed to get by a BP helicopter and a Sheriff's posse and back to Mexico. So much for professional help when you need it.

One week before the murder Bob and his brother Phil (who I shoot with) hauled a huge quantity of drugs off the ranch that they found in trucks. One week before that a rancher near Naco did the same thing. Two nights later gangs broke into his ranch house and beat him and his wife and told them that if they touched any drugs they found they would come back and kill them. The ranchers here deal with cut fences and haul drug deliveries off their ranches all the time. What ranchers think is that the drug cartels beat the one rancher and shot Bob because they wanted to send a message. Bob always gave food and water to illegals and so they think they sent the assassin to pose as an illegal who was hungry and thirsty knowing it would catch Bob off guard.

What is going on down here is NOT being reported. You need to tell people how bad it is along the border. Texas is worse. Near El Paso it's in a state of war. 5000 people were killed in Ciudad Juarez last year and it's over 2000 so far this year. Gun sales down here are through the roof and I get emails from people wanting firearms training. Something has to be done but I don't hold out much hope. These gangs have groups in almost every city in the US. This is serious business. The Barrio Azteca and their sub gangs are like Mexican Corporations and organized extremely well. If this doesn't get dealt with down here you guys will deal with it on your streets.

The AZ law is in response to a failure of the current and previous administration to do their basic duties and protect the liberty of American citizens and enforce the law on the books. Both Obama and Bush should be held accountable. Our country is about to be torn apart.

The law abiding, peaceful Tea Parties are demonized by the media. The SWAT team is called on the little old ladies at the Quincy, ILL Tea Party where Obama is speaking. The Army is training at FT Knox to respond to these same Tea Parties. But, the media and the White House says that we should support illegal activity and we are racists if we don't. Yep, the world is completely upside down.

illegal ALIEN pandering like liberal race baiting, and socialist state politics in "political discussions" is going to backfire.

You see what is going to happen is that folks paying the bills are going to get so mad that liberals will be voted out of their spread the wealth office for half a century and that fence going up on the border will be so utilitarian it will set a precedent on law breaking illegal alien invaders everywhere .

I am a conservative white male and don't have a problem with legal immigrants. As a matter of fact, I think those that enter this country legally seeking a better life for their families are more in touch with the American dream and the promise of freedom and liberty than those who have been heer for generations. However, there is a war on the border being waged by the drug cartels and the federal government is unwilling to stop it. Our citizens are now dying on their own property and the federal government does nothing. Both the Bush and Obama administrations have failed in securing our borders and enforcing the laws on the books. The state of AZ is now exercising it's constitutional authority to enforce the laws that the feds will not.

TO ALL THOSE IGNORANTS, REDNECKS AND RACISTS POSTING HERE:
Through decades, the United States had the most flexible and lax Immigration laws. YOUR D..MN ALIEN ANCESTORS, had above 30 motives and clauses for legalize their Status. Between 1900 and 1950, millions and millions of Irish, Italians, Polish, Jewish, Germans, Russian Britt, etc, show up in our ports (for instance, Ellis Island, in NYC) without Immigration visa, without passport and even many with false documents. But the America of those years was kind, compassive with those millions of illegal European Immigrants. However, as the progeny of those illegal European immigrants were gaining seats in the US Congress, also they started trimming the 35 motives that their own ancestors used to obtain his "Green Card" in the UNITED STATES and creating a biased and political charged QUOTE system Today survived only 6 of those original 30 clauses. No longer US Resident brother can make an application for siblings, or a US Resident husband, can make an application for his illegal wife. No longer you could put a small business asking the Legal Status as Small Investor. Today you need at least 1 million dollars as investment. Even a kind and compassive Immigration law known as "7 years", was replaced for another one, tough, including draconian conditions.
Mr. Racist: If you don't know what I'm talking about and you aren't an American Indian..... then please, SHUT UP YOUR D..MN MOUTH.
Brownie people like me, must have today the same opportunities that your white, blue eyes, blond illegal ancestors, had to immigrate to the United States. Period.

Franco is of elitist high intelligence as a descendant of the great christian European caucasoid race Latino Hispanic nation of Spain who founded the western hemisphere in 1492 with Italian Christopher Columbus employed by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabelle seeking a western route to India and the Orient since the muslims had cut off the routes.

In addition these christians of 500yrs ago had an equally important mission to spread the Roman Universalist christian truth to all corners of the world and this they performed magnificantly defeating the millions of pagan savage ex-Asian mongoloid monopolies with very small conquistador militias many believe with done with divine intervention from above. The later white protestant Anglicans took care of mostly the northern most western hemisphere.

The western hemisphere is divided into the North and South Americas.

The great white Latino Hispanics fought the good fight and defeated the enemy. That is the only reason why today 90% of both North and South America are christian.

Technically there is still but one umbrella singular universal christian church based in Rome for 1700 yrs since Constantine even after the 500 yr old protestant reformation considered a minor glitch only.

It is NOT Mexican Independence day as some ignoramuses would have you believe.

It is a regional celebration of Mexican army victory over the French.

Too bad.

I'm going to have a baguette and drink some French roast coffee in celebration.

Maybe the French will come back someday...

Where?

Certainly, they are not needed to the degree you see them running around everywhere today, doing things OTHER than menial labor
they allegedly come here for.

There are reasons for immigration laws. One very big reason is to make sure a bunch of scumbag gang members aren't getting into our country. Another big reason is to make sure our infrastructure isn't over run.

Create work-prisons for these people to pay for their own repatriation.

Het Frankie, I see you removed my post, truth hurts doesn't it. Why is it any news article or blog on a minority, like the cop killer, NIck Mackey, or any minority is heavily censored, God forbid you point out someones race. But if someone makes a comment about whitey, as I pointed out yesterday some comments on this blog that called for the death of whitey sat for days. Those were OK I guess, until I pointed them out and copy/pasted them to my comment.

Why does the Observer pander to these minorities, they don't buy your paper?

Franco Ordonez said...

Ghoul,
Our policy is pretty simple. Profanity, obscenity, spam, name-calling or attacking others is prohibited. The comments you pointed out were removed late as were others that violated our policy. They should have been removed sooner. However, to say that we only remove some comments supporting/opposing a particular view is just wrong. As you can see by reading through the dozens of comments above, there are many supporting the views you purport we're censoring.

Thanks again for your message. I also appreciate that you identify your comments.

Ghoul said...

I appreciate the response. Unfortunately, those comments were there for 3+ days. Not that you or some administrator should monitor them 24/7, but they were there all day Friday and Saturday, while other comments that I could not read were previously removed, so I assume, with conviction, that they were approved of since they were not removed at the same time as the others.

Not that it is your doing, but 3 of the website's front page stories have their comments blocked completely, all about minorities. Yes there is some hateful comments on there, those can and should be deleted, but when comments noting facts, such as incarceration rates, are flagged and deleted, not just blocked, someone in your office is making a conscious decision to censor, something they all were taught about in school and should be against.

I do read your blog for perspective, I generally disagree with your views, even though you claim to be an unbiased observer, your spin on how you write stories, and the ones you leave alone, tells much about your beliefs. I willing admit by biases, you should try some honest in your next column, it would be refreshing.

The "Spanics" slur is uncalled for. Afterall these are not real "Spanics". Their weak pagan Asian migrant ancestors were forced to learn Spanish after conquered by the divinely inspired extenuating European Crusader forces mostly from Spain hundreds of yrs after the original great Crusades that had last 200 yrs cleansing the pagan muslims and other deviants in the middle east securing the Holy Lands.

Spanish is a sacred tongue derived from Latin aka Latino in which the original Book was written in Rome after the great Roman emperor Constantine organized the Nicean Councils in 325 AD to begin the formal canonization process.

Make no mistake. Spanish/Hispanic is sacred and of European origin. Mexicans and others are very fortunately blessed to speak it and they know it.
