Re: “Media Watch

A non issue until there are 11 articles a month worth reading. ADS should have just put the UofA sports coverage behind the wall. It is the only content they have that is saleable.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Gandalf, I was recently in both Turkey and Jordan (2 weeks ago). Yes there are many Syrians in both. Thankfully the hospitality and generosity of the Turks and Jordanians is abundant, as they both host refugees not just from Syria, but also Kurds, Iraqis, Palestinians and Egyptians. We could learn a lot from them.

Re: “Babeu "Dialing For Dollars" Off The Oracle Incident He Created

Sabasbas, I don't think that people disagree with Mr . Baubeu because of his stance on illegal immigration. Why some individuals are reluctant to believe anything this man say's is all for good reason's. He has deliberately deceived the public on various different occasions. In the case of the deputy who by some miracle was able to fight off several members of the drug cartel armed with A-k 47's, yet not one casing was ever found in the area. Baubeu who is a veteran of war (and knows better) collaborated with the deputy's fairy tale version. Second, If a man opposes illegal immigration, should he turn the other cheek on particular occasions for his own benefit. I'm sure the sheriff could easily hook up with legal lovers and avoid the humiliation of being referred to as a hypocrite.

Ever since KFMA moved up the dial, I can't pick them up on the car radio or at my home.

Oh well, best of luck to Fook and Mishell.

Re: “Babeu "Dialing For Dollars" Off The Oracle Incident He Created

The media acts as if this call for funds is somehow nefarious or from a secret cult. The secret cult is the federal government, not a hard-working local sheriff. Taking the "liberal line" and attacking all who disagree with their position on open borders seems to be the tack here. Babeu is a voice of reason, and if you want to blindly support the scary corporate feds, do so. My money is on the first openly gay county sheriff in Arizona. Go, Sheriff Paul!

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

bslap,
George HW Bush signed a law stating that children immigrating from non border countries (Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador for example) NOT be deported. We are following a Republican sponsored law.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

No Dummy Gallardo, I am not angered by my ignorance (I assume you are implying I am ignorant). I am angered by people who sit around waiting for the government to give them a hand out and the politicians that pander to them. I am also angered by people like you who put politicians in office that cater to special interest groups to buy votes. I am also angered by people who blame everybody and anything else for their plight in life instead of getting off their lazy asses and making their life happen. Quit making excuses for yourself and others ("But the welfare rolls are larger now because people in America aren't making living wages"). Your statement is complete crap. There are more people on the dole now because they somehow think they are entitled to other people's money.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

I know it makes for a good news story to focus on a handful of protestors doing stupid things. This doesn't help us get to a solution. Particularly since these fools were probably set up for political reasons. There are some of us that want to rationally wrestle with this issue and pass immigration reform ala the Senate version that includes border security and pay a fine get in line. Further we need to address the underlying issue which is ignored mostly because we are compelled to act with compassion for the children and those fleeing. Why are they coming here? We need to use our will and resources to help solve the problems in Central and South America.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

"if there is a law we are supposed to follow it."

Like Obama's non-enforcement of immigration laws that started this mess? Aka DACA? Or the immigration protesters getting under BP vehicles downtown which was lauded in the Weekly. Please. Could this be any more hypocritical?

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Too bad these scumbags showed up at this thing.
They give a bad name to the vast majority of people who favor enforcing immigration laws and reducing immigration rates to stop the rapid erosion of wages we've seen in the last 30 years (coincidentally the period of highest immigration in the country's history).
Increasing water shortages and environmental degradation are indicators that we have too high population growth already without doubling immigration rates (what the current "comprehensive" immigration reform would do).

This man is an idiot. There are so many of us in the state of Az that depend on Mexican tourism to make ends meet. If this man think's for one second that you can put hate before prosperity, his full of it.

Who is Babeu ? I really don't think anyone really knows. His true identity is well hidden behind a badge.
