Rage Against The Machine Frontman Plans Arizona Protest Concerts!

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikPitbull

wenn1970024zd.jpg

Zack De La Rocha of Rage Against the Machine is planning a series of concerts called the Sound Strike campaign to protest Arizona's state immigration laws.

He explains:

"In the coming weeks we are going to be organizing a series of concerts that are respectful of the nature of the boycott in its attempts to isolate the Arizona government but not isolate the people, and especially the organizations that are fighting this on the ground."

"Many of us have begun to plan concerts that include bands that have signed on the Sound Strike, and make tickets available so that people within Arizona can come and see these concerts as they roll out."

Sound Strike participants include Maroon 5, My Morning Jacket, Ben Harper and Pitbull who have all agreed to boycott the state until the new law is repealed.

Amazing!

    Well I would say in this situation Arizona wins. Who listens to rage against the machine anymore?

    This is just the "excuse" they are using b/c they can't sell tickets!



  2. 2

    Another reason to visit Arizona. I hate this band so fucking much.



  3. 3

    some people are so ignorant.. the law is not racist.. it was voted for and approved by the arizona people.. they are the only ones that know what is going on and other people have no right to dictate what is best for them. in the past years phoenix has become one of the most violent and dangerous cities around, this law is put in place for safety and well being, not for hatred.



  4. 4

    Perez are you really this fucking stupid?? There is nothing illegal about the Arizona law.

    Let me ask you how would you like it if i broke into your home and decided to move in?? that's what these people are doing.



  5. 5

    Stupid.

    thanks for letting us know whose cd's NOT to buy.

    Ridiculous that Hilton would give this media attention. America and Arizona aren't anti-immigration, its criminal immigration that we must end.

    Hell ya! I want to see Jan Brewer go to hell on the ticket she has earned herself.

    Re: big_momma

    Amen to that



  10. 10

    This is exactly the kind of thing Rage would do. Love it. Equality for all.



  11. 11

    Keep protesting all you want. True Americans are sick of it and are taking action. Most southern states are already planning on reinforcing this law in 2011.



  12. 12

    anything to make money, right libs?



  13. 13

    Illegal is Illegal period. If you are here without the correct documents then you are breaking the law. PERIOD !!



  14. 14

    Keep protesting, stupid crybabies! I bet none of these "entertainers" even read the bill.



  15. 15

    Oh look, more totally irrelevant groups protesting laws in a state they don't live in and have no right to interfere with. Fuck 'em all.
    ——
    And until Mexicans magically become a "race" - fuck every single ignorant dumbass who keeps using that term.



  16. 16

    The protests about this law are BS! There's nothing wrong with the law, because it is, in fact, THE LAW. Most people who protest it don't know the whole thing, and it isn't racial profiling at all. The law has been a law here in AZ for QUITE some time, we're just now starting to heavily enforce it. And yuh know what, why don't all of you protesters come down here and live with it for a month, THEN maybe you'll see WHY we're enforcing it. I'm all for immigration and better opportunities, but get your papers before you get here.



  17. 17

    Amazing is right. Everyone should be like Zack . You're still a tool perez

    No loss to the people in Arizona - a bunch of attention seeking grandstanding z-listers that only listen to the propaganda media.



  19. 19

    This law is a good thing. Look what's happened to the UK since they basically opened their borders. This law is a response to the federal governments lack of action on illegals



  20. 20

    This is not AMAZING you fucking douche. If you lived here and saw how badly the state has bee affected by illegal immigrants you'd think different. Over 60% of the state budget goes to paying out assistance to illegals and their family. It's bullshit. I wish they'd send your dumb fucking ass out of this country. Trash like you is not needed here! And I don't mean hispanic or gay, I mean style biting douche bags like you!

  21. NvMe says – reply to this


    21

    I think when the cops stop me, they shouldn't be allowed to ask me for ID either… Why not - I dont want to pay taxes, and I would some free Section 8 housing, medical care, and food stamps. Sounds good to me, why should they get all the benefits…



  22. 22

    Rage Against the Machine are bunch of commies. Why don't the just move to Cuba and shut the fuck up.

  23. choke says – reply to this


    23

    Zack DE LA ROCHA and PITBULL are both latin americans..and I knew this would happen. A lot of people(not all) who are latin/american/mexican american are gonna fight against this law because they are the same heritage..Go back to mexico then..Let me guess, marc anthony and jennifer lopez are also against it..ricky martin too? Come on now. They are going to make it about race how pathethic..when its about the law and the well being of US citizens.. I can't wait until the whole country is like this..maybe things will be w bit better for us. GOOD JOB AZ!! Love you!



  24. 24

    Yeah, when your rowdiest neighbor breaks through your backyard fence and moves all his furniture over to your side, and the cops won't/can't do anything about it…. then this neighbor throws a party in your backyard — enters your back door, raids your fridge to feed his friends, spills red wine on your couch, barfs on your bed, broken glass all over your kitchen floor, garbage left everywhere — used dirty diapers smeared into your carpet, punches holes in your walls, steals your car, and then burns down your house — and disappears, poof! Insurance won't help you because you "let him" do this… these JACKASSES who think AZ is racist can go to hell.



  25. 25

    People are so damn blind… Arizona is the only State trying to keep this Country safe. Mexican workers are not the only people walking past our borders. Terrorists, Drug Dealers, Murderers to name a few. Perez, you need to wake up and see whats happening here. I fear for the American Citizens living in border towns who are scared to walk their streets at night. I have no issue if you wish to come here, become a legal citizen and pay taxes just like the rest of us. If you are an illegal immagrant, you ARE a criminal and we need you to PROVIDE ID proving otherwise!!!!!



  26. 26

    Re: NvMe – They can't get food stamps without proper I.D. and Proof of Citizenship. And at least in my town they can tell between fake and real I.D.



  27. 27

    Rage getting political?!? Never!!!



  28. 28

    Never going to buy any of their crappy music again!



  29. 29

    Stupid. They prefer to let the state become a roque state where all the people who start off in this country illegally are welcome to continue living outside the law. Nice.



  30. 30

    So ridiculous. The only people that are probably going attend this are the illegals. This will probably be an easy way to round them all up and deport them.



  31. 31

    Re: norajane
    This law was voted for by the Senate and signed in by Brewer. We had no voicce in this.
    And for all you who think this just about Mexicans then you need to read the bill. Its for any illegal immigrant from any country here without proper I.D.
    And as for "The Sound Strike" It's about time you realize that it's not fair to punish the citizens for what the government does.

    Re: the_flab – In New York they can - all they gotta do is pop out a few kids. Trust me - I live on Long Island, and I see what they get.



  33. 33

    i am so sick of all these air brained celebrities jumping on the we hate arizona bandwaggon just because their name happens to be latino in origin. this is ridiculous. first of all, the law is not racist. anyone with half a brain who actually takes the time to read it can see that. why do people insist on punishing arizona? they see the drama first hand on a daily basis. nobody loses their mind when an american gets shot on his own property by illegals. it's just oh poor illegals want to come her for a better life. well, what about our lives? what about our quality of living? what about our safety? what about our tax dollars? what about our jobs? what about the quality of life for our children. there isn't going to be a fucken american dream if we don't cherish it. i come from immigrants on both sides. mexican on one, italian on the other. my ancestors did it LEGALLY. with reverence for the USA. granted, our immigration system is broken and we share a lot of the blame. but why are we punishing arizona for doing something the feds should have been doing from the beginning? and what about all of the fans that live in AZ and may not be for the bill? their punishing them too? Common sense has been so lost. it's disgusting. i will never spend one dime on any of the artists who have joined this cause. EVER!



  34. 34

    It figures that Perez - who's a fucking Cuban wetback himself - would be against this law. FUCK YOU PEREZ, you fat tub of lard! These fuckers are destroying our country one street at a time. They take - YES, TAKE - all of our resources. They don't pay taxes, but they sure do mooch off the system. Go the fuck back to Cuba you fat fucking pig, and take all these fucking Cubans, South Americans and Mexicans with you. I'm sick and tired of this country being destroyed by people who are only capable of mowing lawns and making babies. FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKING ILLEGALS!!!!!



  35. 35

    Pro Arizona and any other state that steps up to do what the FEDS haven't.



  36. 36

    Huzzah! I support them wholeheartedly, and you forgot to mention Gogol Bordello who also joined this cause. Down with legal discrimination!

    Re: big_momma – Can't sell tickets? RATM? What retarded planet do you hail from and why'd they leave your stupid ass behind?



  37. 37

    Wow, why do they feel they should have any "interest" in the Arizona law? You want to perform to illegal immigrants? Then take your happy ass across the border and do so. Their own countries take harsher measures than AZ. Play your music and stay out of politics.



  38. 38

    Re: the_flab – They certainly can in central Texas. No citizenship status required.

    Re: Kakia – Jan Brewer isn't going to hell. She is going to be known as Rosa Parks once these fucking criminals get kicked the fuck out this summer. You are delusional to think that this is a bad political move for her.



  41. 41

    Re: norajane – Well said. I totally agree with you. Everyone who is upset about this law is an outsider looking in. I'm an outsider, but you know what, each state has the ability to make their own laws & that is one of the many great things about our country. If you don't like the law, then don't live there. Other states are already starting to follow in Arizona's footsteps & apparently it's what the residents of those states want. Since the federal government is too busy with their thumbs up their asses it's a breath of fresh air to see the individual states stand up to an issue that has been a problem for quite some time…



  42. 42

    Re: MrBlonde1990 – Equality for all? Then why the fuck are illegals above the law? They aren't, asshole, at least not this summer when our immigration laws are enforced equally to everyone regardless of their skin color. If you have any illegal amigos, I suggest that you throw them a farewell fiesta cuz they ain't gonna be around much longer.



  43. 43

    Re: Unbelievable! – Re post #15 You are brilliant!



  44. 44

    Okay well this is just stupid. I live in arizona, most of us had nothing to do with this. So even though i hate this band, you're screwing over your fans for absolutely no reason. Hope you feel like a great guy protesting and all when you piss off and lose a bunch of your fans?



  45. 45

    I'm 17 and I even agree with the Arizona law. I'm shocked that people much older than me do not have the brain capacity to understand that we American citizens are only against illegal immigration, not immigration in general. The protests are unnecessary and it won't even help to change my mind. I am sick and tired of illegal immigration. My parents are hardworking people and they do not deserve to pay their taxes to illegal immigrants who are on welfare. In fact, no one deserves to give their money to the government to benefit these illegal immigrants. I abhor when people play the race card; this is not a matter of race. That specific race brought it all on themselves. This Arizona law wouldn't have happened if everyone just follows the simplest laws. My Italian family came here legally and they had to learn English. Now we have every store translating to Spanish and pressing 2 for Spanish when we need service by our phones. I have so much more to say but enough with these pointless protests.



  46. 46

    Re: newyorkina – Moron, if everyone was like Zack then everything would be anarchy. What the fuck is the point of laws if you don't enforce them? You're probably Latina (judging by your moniker) and you're sad to see your little criminal amigos get deported. Wah fucking wah!



  47. 47

    We should really also be arresting the many many many greedy American people and corporations that HIRE these illegal immigrants for horrible salaries to do humiliating menial jobs (that no American would want anyway) to save on payroll. That's just as much of an epidemic as the illegal immigration, and quite frankly, it helps support it…



  48. 48

    Dallas they dont have to have it either. I even saw now where they dont have to have a license to get insurance or a social security card for kids to go to school and file taxes on some isn number to get around their illegal status. Yes we have made it quite comfy if your criminals and want to Profit in America. Im not saying down with Immigration, just there are certain channels to come over here. Use them properly.
    I USED to like Ratm. Now they can kiss my ass. I hate when entertainers play in politics. Its always UGLY



  49. 49

    Oh, and before I forget. This country was found under equality but technically, the country is contradicting that. Illegal immigrants are taking away our benefits and our money. How is this equality? Obviously these celebrities have not done their research. Mexico treats residents from other countries like crap. They don't even give benefits if an American wants to live in Mexico - not even foodstamps. When the Mexican president condemned the Arizona law, I laughed literally. Why? Because Mexico treats non-citizens of Mexico as if they were nothing.



  50. 50

    Re: kdp2010 – LOL I don't think illegals can afford concerts but it would be nice to send in INS to one of Rage's concerts and round up the criminals.
    PS. Hey, I never thanked you the other day for your kind words about my comments here: Thanks! It's much appreciated. Us Americans gotta stick up for eachother :)



  51. 51

    Re: archimmes – Re post #36 It's nice to see that you side with foreign criminals before you side with legal American citizens. It's also nice to see that you use the R word. Typical liberal asshole!

    The term Reconquista (in English, "reconquest") was popularized by Mexican writers Carlos Fuentes and Elena Poniatowska to describe the demographic and cultural presence of Mexicans into the Southwestern United States. Other groups, like the National Will Organization, do not support the concept of the imagined "Aztlan", and identify themselves with the modern Hispanic Mexico, which they see as deprived of its northern territories after the Mexican War.[5]

    Illegal immigration into the southwest states is sometimes viewed as a form of reconquista, in light of the fact that Texas statehood was preceded by an influx of illegal U.S. settlers into that Mexican province until United States citizens outnumbered Mexicans 10-1 and were able to take over governance of the area. The theory is that the reverse will happen as Mexicans, Native Americans, Central Americans, and First Nation peoples eventually become so numerous in that region that they can wield substantial influence, including political power.[6]

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver

    I always enjoy your comments. Gives me a laugh and respect for you. (:
    You truly know how to stand up for yourself. I'm glad we share the same views. :)



  58. 58

    Perez - this is not amazing. What makes this country great is our states' rights to uphold FEDERAL LAW as they see fit. What about tax paying legal citizens and immigrants who live in Phoenix? This is a capital second to Mexico City in drug related kidnappings. What about those illegal immigrants treated inhumanely by drug lords and human trafficking thanks to a lack of adequate border patrol? Know the facts before you speak. You are just as ignorant as our own President and his Administration.



  59. 59

    another moron who didn't bother to read the law before opening their big mouth. let him come live in arizona and see the crime from illegals first rate for himself. i'd like to see him go down around the forests in tucson and last more than 10 minutes before some douche from the mexican mafia shoots him in the face.

  63. 63

    Yawn. Protest all you want Zach, the law may be subject to a TRO during the legal challenge, but it WILL be placed into law this year. Further, there are almost 30 states drafting identical laws. The invasion is over. It's time to start applying for citizenship instead of taking it.



  64. 64

    Kateedid didn't says – reply to this .. jtssrx – made perfect sense ! They said "Let me ask you how would you like it if i broke into your home and decided to move in?? that's what these people are doing. " That person is comparing ILLEGALS to people breaking into your home. It makes PERFECT sense ! They are breaking into our country and making a mess of things !



  65. 65

    Re: I_hate_illegals – PAYING TAXES MEANS YOU PAY A TAX EVERY TIME YOU BUY FOOD, GAS, CLOTHING, EAT AT A RESTAURANT. I GUESS MEXICANS DON'T DO ANY OF THAT? THEY PAY EVERYDAY WHEN RACIST ASSHOLES LIKE YOU FUCK WITH THEM FOR NO REASON. NO ONE WANTS TO WORK IN CHICKEN FACTORIES OR CLEAN TOILETS…TOO MANY ENTITLED AMERICANS TO DO ACTUAL MANUAL LABOR. GO CHARGE SOME MORE DEBT ON YOUR CREDIT CARDS, CRAWL INTO YOUR HUMMER, AND BUY A EXPENSIVE HANDBAG, THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER HONEY!

    Illegal alien workers may increase profits for employers, but they are costly to the American taxpayer. Most illegal aliens have low educational attainment, few skills, and they work for low wages, often in the underground economy where they pay no taxes on their earnings. Since about three million illegal aliens gained legal status in the amnesty of 1986, the flow of illegal immigration has increased, and today that population is estimated at 9-11 million illegal alien residents in the country. The former Immigration and Naturalization Service estimated that the illegal alien population was increasing by about half a million aliens per year in 2000.



  67. 67

    Because the number of illegal aliens can only be estimated, similarly the fiscal cost (government budget outlays) for those aliens can only be estimated. Dr. Donald Huddle, a Rice University economics professor, published a systematic analysis of those costs as of 1996 (see table below). The study also estimated the tax payments of those same aliens.

    At that time, the illegal alien population was estimated to be about five million persons. The estimated fiscal cost of those illegal aliens to the federal, state and local governments was about $33 billion. This impact was partially offset by an estimated $12.6 billion in taxes paid to the federal, state and local governments, resulting in a net cost to the American taxpayer of about $20 billion every year. This estimate did not include indirect costs that result from unemployment payments to Americans who lost their jobs to illegal aliens willing to work for lower wages. Nor did it include lost tax collections from those American workers who became unemployed. The study estimated those indirect costs from illegal immigration at an additional $4.3 billion annually.



  68. 68

    During the years since that estimate, the illegal alien population is estimated to have roughly doubled, so the estimated fiscal costs also will have at least doubled. Furthermore, the passage of time is accompanied by inflation in the costs of services, e.g., school budgets continue to climb. Therefore, what was estimated to be a cost to the American taxpayer of $33 billion in 1996 today would be at least $70 billion. Similarly, tax collections would have increased — sales taxes at least — so that the net expense to the taxpayer from illegal immigration would currently be at least $45 billion. The indirect fiscal costs would have also increased, especially during a period of already high unemployment, to perhaps and additional $10 billion annually.



  69. 69

    This is so stupid!! This "new" law has been a FEDERAL law since 1941 - Arizona is just now enforcing it. It has nothing to do with racial profiling. Read the law before you post your stupid crap that dumber people will take as the "gospel" since it's coming from the media…

    Re: Gary78 – YOU ARE FUCKIN AWESOME!!!!!



  71. 71

    Other More Recent Estimates
    Other estimates have been done on components of the cost of illegal immigration. For example, FAIR estimated in 2003 that the cost of K-12 education for illegal alien children was at least $7.4 billion annually (see Breaking the Piggybank). This would be less than double the about $5.9 billion estimate above, but would be of the same order of magnitude. FAIR’s 2004 report on the medical expenses incurred because of illegal immigration (see The Sinking Lifeboat) shows uncompensated costs in excess of one billion dollars.



  72. 72

    The cost of incarceration of illegal aliens in state prisons has also risen rapidly. In fiscal year ’02, the Department of Justice’s State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) distributed $550 million to the states to help defray their expenses, but this was estimated to cover only about one fifth of their outlays. Between FY'99 and FY'02, alien detention increased by 45 percent (from about 69,300 inmate years to over 100,300 inmate years), and that trend is continuing. These expenses do not include the costs of illegal aliens incarcerated in federal prisons, public safety expenditures, detention pending trial, expenses of trial proceedings, interpretation, public defenders, or the incarceration expenses of immigrants for minor offenses that do not meet the standards of the SCAPP reimbursement program. Therefore, it is clear that outlays for Criminal Justice and Corrections costs is today much greater than double the 1996 estimate.

    While the cost of outlays for illegal aliens may be shifted by legislation among the levels of government and the private sector, the fact remains that illegal immigration creates an enormous fiscal burden on America and its citizens — a burden that Congress has levied upon us through short-sighted and haphazard immigration policy and succeeding administrations have aggravated by spotty enforcement of the law.



  73. 73

    BTW - California has had a law very similar to this on the books since 2001…



  74. 74

    Re; Kateedid didn't YOU are complete IDIOT ! ILLEGALS DO NOT DO JOBS U.S. CITIZENS WON'T DO, THEY DO JOBS FOR VERY LOW WAGES THAT AMERICANS WON'T WORK FOR ! THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: EyelineredHeart – Hey, kid, I truly appreciate your kind words. Any 17 year old who uses the word abhor (and correctly, I might add) is a smart person and I'm sure that you'll go far in life. I really mean that :)



  76. 76

    The Arizona Immigration Law IS Identical to Federal Laws Requiring Alien Documentation. The Fed gov't ISN'T enforcing the law, that's why AZ had to put their own STATE LAW in place ! If the Fed gov't was enforcing the law, which has been in place since the 1940's, then AZ wouldn't have been forced to pass this law !!!



  77. 77

    THANK GOODNESS PEOPLE ARE TAKING THE FIRST STEP IN DEVELOPING IMMIGRATION LAWS!!! IT IS ABOUT TIME!!! PEOPLE ARE VERY IGNORANT ABOUT THIS. IT IS NOT RACIST. IT'S NO DIFFERENT THAN THE COPS ASKING FOR OUR DRIVERS LICSENSE WHEN WE ARE PULLED OVER. IF YOU CAN'T PROVE YOU ARE A CITIZEN OR HAVE THE RIGHT VISA TO BE HERE, THEN GET THE HELL OUT!!!!



  78. 78

    Re: Gary78 – we get your fucking point dude, you don't have to copy&paste your Drudge report article here. How about you use that energy to come up with actual solutions to the problem, instead of whining how them dirty illegals "took uhr juuuuuuhbs" because that's what a whole lot of you are doing right now. And by actual solutions I mean anything other than pointing at the sky and blaming all your problems at the government.

    U.S. Citizens killed by Illegal Aliens

    Studies have found that illegal immigration causes substantial human costs to American citizens and legal immigrants. Those that are particularly vulnerable are children, women and minorities.



  81. 81

    According to the 2006 House Committee on Homeland Security Border Report, every year an estimated 4,300 American citizens lose their lives by an illegal immigrant. Several thousands of senseless deaths could have been prevented if our federal, state and local law enforcement would enforce our immigration laws and secure our borders.

    The Violent Crimes Institute estimated that there are 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States, which averages about four victims each. There are many victims that our Congress has failed to protect and accepts as collateral damage. Substantiating the human cost, the Department of Homeland Security estimates that illegal immigrants molest more than 2,900 children. How many more thousands of children will be victimized until we speak up for them?

    For fair and open debate on the impact of illegal immigration, we cannot ignore the human costs to American citizens or accept it as collateral damage. It is time for our U.S. Reps. to listen to their constituents to secure our borders and to NOT give anyone that is here illegally ANY TYPE OF AMNESTY.

    It is time to get off our ass and call all our representatives. Tell them to secure our borders and no amnesty to anyone that is here illegally

    Illegal Alien Suppressing American Wages

    $200 Billion Dollars a year in suppressed American wages are
    caused by the illegal aliens.

    Illegal Alien Incarceration Costs

    $3 Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens.
    30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens.

Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana, crossed into the U. S from the Southern border. Homeland Security Report:

    Re: Gary78 – No ones gonna read what you put down because you making this into racial issue. This isn't all about immigrants from just Mexico. So if you're gonna lay down facts don't make them all about Mexican Immigrants.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Its nice to see that you waddled that whale carcass that you call your ass out of the easy chair into yet another political discussion, and spewed some shit that you clearly know nothing about. Its never a party till the resident trailer trash, i.e. you, shows his/her/its presence.

    1. If you migrate to this county, you must speak the native language

    2. You have to be a professional or an investor. No unskilled workers allowed.

    3. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools, no special ballots for elections, all government business will be conducted in our language.

    4. Foreigners will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.

    5. Foreigners will NEVER be able to hold political office.

    6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs.

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.

    8. If foreigners do come and want to buy land that will be okay, BUT options will be restricted. You are not allowed waterfront property. That is reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.

    9. Foreigners may not protest; no demonstrations, no waving a foreign flag, no political organizing, no badmouthing our president or his policies, if you do you will be sent home.

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be hunted down and sent straight to jail.

    Harsh, you say? The above laws belong to the immigration laws of MEXICO!

    Re: Gary78 – I love your posts. :3 I had to write a speech against illegal immigration in English class this year. You would have helped me so much, lol. I'm kidding. But wonderful posts. (:

    thanks for the list of "ignorant idiots you should not buy music from"

    omg!

    AZ's new law is keeping all the rash out before it's even been enforced!

    i wish ALL the U.S. border states would have these same laws

    keeping has-been "rock bands" out of their state is an unexpected bonus!

    VIVA SB1070!



  93. 93

    Rage Against the Machine has always been a whiny, protest everything rock band.
    Like we care what ANY of these "supposed celebrities" think, they don't get to decide for the rest of us. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION is ILLEGAL!!



  94. 94

    What everyone here needs to do is read the actual SB 1070 then the HB 2162. Once you read BOTH then you'll understand that there is nothing about racial profiling. Cops are only allowed to check papers on those they pull over, arrest or detain.



  95. 95

    Double win for Arizona No more illegal aliens and no more crappy music. Good for them we should all be so lucky

    Re: archimmes – LOL, you are fucking hilarious. I love that Gary pissed you off so much that you had to reply to him. I'm sure that you didn't want to reply (and let everyone here know that Gary got your goat) but you absolutely HAD TO and it's so funny. I also love that you think I'm trailer trash. Does it make you feel better to call the supporters of the AZ law "fat" and "trailer trash?" I said it before and I'll say it again: this shit is really happening. AZ will begin deporting their illegal aliens on July 29th. Over 20 states are already gearing up to follow AZ's lead and all 50 states will eventually enforce their immigration laws by 2012. Within the next 2 years, nearly all the illegal aliens in the country (roughly 25-30 million criminals) will be deported. Democrats will be forced to go along with it because the overwhelming majority of Americans have fucking had it with these illegal invaders and in order to keep their jobs, Democrats will get on the "fuck illegals" bandwagon.

    How Mexico Treats Illigal Immigrants
    Mexican President Felipe Calderon has accused Arizona of opening the door “to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.” But Arizona has nothing on Mexico when it comes to cracking down on illegal aliens. While open-borders activists decry new enforcement measures signed into law in “Nazi-zona” last week, they remain deaf, dumb or willfully blind to the unapologetically restrictionist policies of our neighbors to the south



  99. 99

    The Arizona law bans sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws, stiffens penalties against illegal alien day laborers and their employers, makes it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to complete and carry an alien registration document, and allows the police to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they are in the U.S. legally. If those rules constitute the racist, fascist, xenophobic, inhumane regime that the National Council of La Raza, Al Sharpton, Catholic bishops and their grievance-mongering followers claim, then what about these regulations and restrictions imposed on foreigners?



  100. 100

    – The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?

    – If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.
