Democrats Prioritize Immigration

Democratic leaders plan to prioritize the immigration bill ahead of the energy bill, reported the Wall Street Journal.

According to the Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with the help of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is sill intent on passing climate legislation but believes both are important bills.

Also, according to a new poll from Ipsos and Telemundo, four out of five Hispanics believe the economy has already stabilized or has already started to improve.

In the House, Hispanic leaders have asked President Barack Obama to block a recently passed law in Arizona that would allow police to check immigration status for people simply for suspecting they're illegal immigrants.

A State Law to evict Latinos from Arizona :

Kristall Nacht in Arizona - Arizonian Progrom - Latino Guitarrist on the roof - Funny Comments in the Huffington Post from Nice and Kind People !

Arizonian Progrom :

Latino Guitarrists on the Roof or Mariachis on the roof :

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical, Broadway production and movie, and set in Tsarist Russia in 1905. It is based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Milkman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope with both the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of her faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

Some Sephardim Jews from Sefarad ( Spain ) seem very similar to Latinos ( after living thousands of years in Spain )

Ashkenazi Jews : the word Ashkenazi means German in Hebrew

While Ashkenazim can be religiously subdivided into Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, etc, the Sephardim have remained largely homogeneous and more traditionally religious in what, for lack of a better term, is called Orthodox. However it is an Orthodoxy that encompasses the entire spectrum of Sephardim, with obviously some Sephardim more religious than others, and due to the influence of philosophers like Saadia gaon and Maimonides who attempted to integrate known science and Aristotlian reason and logic into what has become known as Rational Judaism (see later) it is usually, in practice if not in dogma, often less rigid than one would expect. In contrast in Ashkenaz, dogma and tradition took on its own force even if subsequent theological arguments proved the basis to be incorrect.

My comment :

But what about the Tourist and Convention Dollars for Arizona ??. Because Corporate and Business Employees will be harassed if not Milk White, and Corporations are going to be losing money when their employees are in jail. Business Corporations will shun Arizona.

And who is the foolish tourits that will go to Arizona if not perfect Nordic ??? that is Looking, Blond and Blue Eyed Viking.

Jan Brewer, Arizona Governor, To Act On Tough Immigration Bill

April 23, 2010

From Huffington Post - Comments from Common People :
Sorry that I forgot to include some alias of Commentators :

MissKaren :
Blacks in South Africa were required to carry ID papers at all times. So were Jews in pre-war Germany. Are we going to go that way? As far as I'm concerned, the only papers a person needs to carry are driver's license and insurance if he or she drives a car and an ATM card for quickie withdrawals or purchases. Anything else is superfluous. This law stinks and I hope Brewer has the strength of character to veto it. I also think it's probably in contravention of federal law and it will be struck down.

Comment 2 :
Those who are arrested will have to "prove" they are citizens by carrying their birth certificate or passport with them at all times. Since non-Hispanics won't be required to do that, those who are arrested will be treated differently than other Americans, which will cause the number of lawsuits to skyrocket. Expect some of the arrestees to be beaten or to die in custody.

Needless to say, even though Hispanics might be Arizona's primary concern, those from India, Pakistan, the Arab states, South America, the South Seas ... anyone who is 'different' can expect to be rousted, arrested and generally treated badly as 'unAmerican in appearance'.
