Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

I hope that the IRS under President Trump looks into whether religious organizations that aid and abet criminal fugitives are entitled to keep their tax exempt status. The taxpayers certainly should not be expected to subsidize this.

It's important to realize that we are not, generally speaking, talking about people who are at risk of being sent back to face authoritarian death squads for being political dissidents. It isn't 1986 any more. We are, generally speaking, talking about economic migrants who snuck into our country, in violation of our laws, because they wanted to improve their lifestyles. Fair enough. Everyone would like to have more money, better housing, better schools for their kids, etc. But that doesn't entitle anyone to violate the law, and it doesn't make them heroes when they do.

Additionally, SSPC is talking about shielding people who are already subject to deportation orders. These are people who have had their due process. They have had notice and a hearing before a federal immigration judge. They just don't want to comply with the judge's order. Ask yourself whether anyone would come to your defense if you just decided, arbitrarily, that a judge's orders just shouldn't apply to you.

As yesterday's riots in DC demonstrated, the left seems to believe that is morally entitled to ignore the law. They aren't. No more anarchy. Enough is enough.

I'm such a fucking idiot. Someone just informed me that a presidential term only lasts 4 years. Not to mention I was also informed that these next 4 years will not necessarily be great, in fact they may suck a boatload of ass. Hold on to your seat and get ready for the deathride!

Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

There are two problem with your argument, "Frances."

1. You assume "unregulated charter schools" and "unregulated private religious schools" can be contrasted with "regulated public district schools." The fact of the matter is that there are regulations on the books that are supposed to govern public district schools, but many of them, including many of the regulations relating to financial transparency, proper bidding practices, etc., are not enforced. About the only thing in Arizona education that is uniform and reliable is lack of proper oversight, and that applies to all three sectors: charter, private, and public district. It's the Wild West, across the board.

2. Conservatives don't want three systems funded, as though this costs 3x as much as funding one system. They want the per pupil funding which is allocated once per pupil to be transportable. If it is not applied in the public system, they want parents to have the option of applying it (or part of it) in alternative schools. It's a zero sum game: when the per pupil funding leaves the public system, so does the cost of educating that child. No one is "stealing" money that belongs to public schools. The money belongs with the child, to support their education. When the child goes, the money goes, too, and that is as it should be.

I know it's hard for monopolists to give up their death-grip on the commodity and market share they've been accustomed to controlling utterly. Their rage at the interruption of their inappropriate and counter-productive privilege is a lot of what we hear in the constant, dishonest "anti-privatization" rants in Safier's blog, in these comment streams, and elsewhere. But perhaps it is time to face the truth: if districts like TUSD had actually provided high quality services and served the best interests of their former students, they wouldn't be having the problems with declining enrollment they've been having now for more than a decade.

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

There is no federal law that says these havens for criminals cannot be raided and shut down. So this to holie to be arrested is simply a delusion.

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Would Tucson's religious left give "sanctuary" to a white person wanted for federal income evasion, or is it only for brown people?

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

"He is going to deport the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants." Oh, horrors, we can't have that. It can't be true anyway because everyone knows they are all good people who just want to help their families. They wouldn't do anything bad, would they. Not really.

Perhaps we wouldn't be having this conversation if millions of Mexicans hadn't swarmed our borders. Did the open border advocates really believe Americans would accept an invasion without pushing back.

Hey Gustavo -- I want to know how the "American carnage" of Trump's inauguration address compares, in your experience, to American CARNITAS, as found across the U.S. both at mobile food and sit-down establishments. Michele M, (prima, El Cargadero).

Re: “Acadia Ranch Museum and Oracle Historical Society

The Oracle area, 35 miles north of downtown Tucson, has a very rich southwestern history, including mining, tuberculosis sanitarium, late 19th century African-American entrepreneurs, Buffalo Bill Cody, early Hollywood film setting, possibly the earliest dude ranch, spectacular location and weather, and currently a great place to retire and the home to Biosphere 2.

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Wed. Aug 31st in a campaign speech in Phoenix.
We are going to triple the number of ICE deportation officers, Trump said. Within ICE, I am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice.
