UPDATE: Apparently, 7 of our “illustrious” council members are OK with the “Reconquista”. It seems this panel has formally rebuked Arizona: San Diego City Council denounces Arizona’s new immigration law
. Therefore, it is on the individual citizen to act in support of Arizona by joining the BUY-cott (click here for FACEBOOK details, including key business links or click HERE for the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition website related to this event).
Dear Readers: An urgent action alert for all my San Diego peeps. I touched upon it in my previous post, but this is flaming-skull hot, so I hope you can take the time to email/call your San Diego representatives:
The San Diego City Council Monday will consider a resolution denouncing an Arizona law that requires police to determine if detainees are in the country legally.
The resolution was requested by Council President Ben Hueso.
“This law will inevitably lead to racial profiling, in violation of the United States Constitution,” Hueso wrote in a memo to his council colleagues.
Similar resolutions are being considered in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
As if there weren’t more urgent matters for them to discuss! The council-member information is found by clicking HERE; also, here is a list for convenience:
* District 1 Councilmember Sherri Lightner E-mail: email@example.com
* District 2 Council President Pro Tem Kevin Faulconer E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
* District 3 Councilmember Todd Gloria E-mail: email@example.com
* District 4 Councilmember Tony Young; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
* District 5 Councilmember Carl DeMaio; E-mail: email@example.com
* District 6 Councilmember Donna Frye; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
* District 7 Councilmember Marti Emerald E-mail: email@example.com
* District 8 Council President Ben Hueso E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the letter that I prepared to Marti Emerald, in case you want a template:
I am a constituent in Tierrasanta. It has come to my attention that at 2 pm on May 3rd the council will vote on a measure that seeks to rebuke Arizona.
I have read through that Arizona law. My readings about this topic and the opinions of legal experts on the Arizona statute fully refute the charge that people will be pulled over for “driving while Mexican”. Based on the wording of the law (which has its foundation in Federal immigration rules http://www.courthousenews.com/2010/04/16/AzSB1070.pdf ), police offers can’t simply pull you aside if you’re on your way to get ice cream with your kid because they think you may be here illegally. They must have probable cause to act.
I am also the Democratic Co-founder of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition, one of the largest citizen action groups in the region. We need you to support our police by supporting the Arizona law. It is critical to note 70% of Americans (as well as 50% of those with Latino heritage) agree with Arizona’s stance. I am attaching a summary sheet with further details.
The members of the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition will be following the results of that vote closely, and noting how each council member voted. I plan to report the details in full on my nationally-known website and the San Diego News Network. I would also like you to note that we have organized a BUY-cott of Arizona, and May 5th is Arizona Money Bomb Day — and these actions have nationwide backing.
I hope you consider this information in preparation for tomorrow’s vote.

“Reconquista” is the name of the action that the Spanish took to reclaim Spain from the Moors, The Spanish had literally to re-conquer thier own land and save their own culture, they were victorious in this quest. It seems now that some are looking to do a hideous distortion of this historical event, this their take-over target being of this region of the USA. The extremists’ new invasion style involves a combination of overwhelming illegal immigration, corruption, violence, and inept representation.
Councilmen like Ben Hueso are part of the problem; you need to be part of the solution. Write or call NOW!

I just don’t get it. Why insert yourself into the another state’s business? Especially, as the Arizona law is based the federal version: Police offers can’t simply pull you aside if you’re on your way to get ice cream with your kid because they think you may be here illegally, as they must have probable cause to act. It is not like San Diego doesn’t have more pressing matters. Please check out Richard Riders blog to stay apprised of key city issues.
