Hinojosa opposes Arizona’s immigration law

Congressman Rubén Hinojosa joined members of the Congressional Tri-Caucus on Wednesday for a press conference condemning the Arizona Immigration Law. In a statement, he condemns the restrictions Arizona has placed on its residents:

“As the representative for the 15th Congressional District in Texas,” Hinojosa said, “I am dismayed and saddened by the passage and adoption of SB 1070 in the state of Arizona. This bill, which authorizes police officers to stop people and demand proof of citizenship, takes us back to some of the most horrific times in the history of this nation and the world.”

Hinojosa denounced the bell as “outrageous” and a “violation of the civil rights of the residents and visitors of Arizona.” He said the law clearly violates basic notions of democracy and openly flouts decency and fairness to these people. 

“With the enactment of this law,” the congressman continued, “we, as public servants and political leaders, have a moral obligation to question the actions of state leaders in Arizona.”

Hinojosa questions the validity of our freedom when residents can be randomly stopped and ordered to show proof of their U.S. citizenship.

“I come from a family of immigrants,” he said. “This country was built by immigrants and it will continue to be built upon by immigrants.”

He adjured Latinos and other immigrants across the country to urge President Obama to act swiftly and work with Congress to fulfill his promise to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

“Now is the time,” he said. “We can no longer afford to wait.”

Those of you who support that AZ law are racists, pure and simple.

AZ people have a right to police their borders. Thought they didn't want the big bad government in their lives? They took the law in their own hands, so to speak, and now they pay for their racist BS.

They didn't want to pass the MLK federal holiday either, remember. They have a history of racism.

Yes, if you agree with the law you're a bigot.

What stuns me is that you stand up proudly and admit it. Very Un-American. So much for those values you all scream about. At the top of your lungs. With Teabags hanging from your hats and white sheets at the ready.

Boomboxmouth,

For the last several days I have been spending thousands of dollars for bait, fishing equipment and for diesel fuel for the “twins”, that’s twin diesel engines, cruising mile after mile on salt water before the offshore disaster takes effect. Those dollars were earmarked for the lazy, sloth’s and dregs by the socialist obama and crew. Its my disposable income. I earned it and I am enjoying it tremendously! The best part is its business expense, gotta love those CPA’s.

Let me share an incident of which you may find of particular interest.

I felt the need to see if golf still lacked appeal so I employed an open guest pass at a noted course.

One of the three caddies insisted on talking about Obama loud enough to assure he was heard from a distance no less than a mile. Obviously an attempt to irritate. Resisting temptation to engage this buffoon one of the golfers (you guess) gave him leeway to see just how much he knew and where it would lead. At the 7th hole the caddy became rude making statements resembling those read here insinuating the dregs would now take from the successful hard working American because Obama will make sure of it.

The conversation took on a whole different tone when questions and facts about the socialist agenda and quest to destroy America by Obama surfaced. The next few holes were clouded with democratic rhetoric which was quickly ventilated. Once soundly defeated and no other intelligible action, the caddy made the mistake of a direct challenge. Pitting his 12 year tenure against a guest status. By the way have you tried the Droid Incredible? Its features are well, incredible. With a generous amount of storage and video capabilities it earned its name. With one phone call from the Droid the caddy finds himself in the same situation you find yourself boombox, as I am sure Dewitt will clean house and the undercover democrat will have no moles to undermine operations.

I could not help but ask the unemployed caddy if he voted for Obama and change. He said “yeah man why.” As I handed him a $20 tip, I said “well now you have your change, what are you going to do with it? He said “ I aint got no change” as he looked at the $20 bill. I said “no not change for the $20, I meant change you voted for, how does it feel to learn the golden rule the hard way?”

The caddy said “what the hell you talking about”. I said, and this is my favorite part; “those with the gold make the rules, now go tell obama”. That just made my entire day!!!

Stop begging for my attention boombox. Election day will silence your type!!!

Have your socialist day suckers!!!

I’m having a GOP DAY!!!

Ohhh, I bet he DOES oppose the law!!

nothing new there.

so, what else that is illegal does he oppose?

can I drive without a license?

can I hunt without a license?

Congressman Hinojosa does not want to enforce laws?

why is the word ILLEGAL so hard to understand?

He says he comes from a family of immigrants. There's a difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants. Why does everyone forget to mention that? It was legal for anyone to come to America at the turn of the century and into the early 1900s. Immigration laws were put into effect since then. Hinojosa must not know that. Immigration and ILLEGAL immigration are two totally different things. How dare Arizona make it illegal to be illegal in this country?
