It's been 2 days now since I first made my comment on the subject. To the 21 gutless wonders who hit dislike but made no attempt to say why, I want thank you so very much. You have proved me right and you wrong. Not one of you is willing to argue with what I said. Probably because you can't. Notice not a word from Peabrain. Timmy the cat girl, Vietnam veterinarian ,that clown with the camera that I always destroy or anyone else in my " fan club". I would also like to say thanks in advance to those that haven't hit dislike but will. Too easy, way too easy.
My name is Willy Bernhard Bils. I have a law degree from the University of Oregon and passed the Arizona bar exam in 1991, after which I was, for many years, a civil rights privacy rights, and consumer rights advocate in Tucson, with regular local impact, some regional impact, and occasional national impact on such issues between 1990 and 2012. The Weekly, through the efforts of Dave Devine, Emil Franzi, and James Reel, among others, was responsible for publishing information I provided it about the problems with the Tucson Police Department and local privacy and other public interest issues between 1998 and 2003. The Weekly's coverage of these issues was of great benefit to the public during that time. Since then, the Weekly has provided far less coverage of these issues, perhaps since TPD has undergone substantial reform and Americans have been led by elements in the government and corporate-controlled news media to falsely believe their privacy is hopelessly compromised since the rise of the American police state caused by the passage of the Patriot Act, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and other "terrorism protection" measures taken by all government agencies and virtually all major corporations (primarily involving the FBI and data mining "fusion centers" which have collected government and corporate data since the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001). In fact, since that time, Americans throughout the Nation have remained disturbed about police misconduct (which has reduced in Tucson, but still needs to be monitored),privacy issues, and corporate abuses, although at a far lower level than occurred prior to 9/11. It remains the public's duty in Tucson to continue to bring these issues to the attention to reporters at all local news media agencies, to a new crop of reporters who must be educated to take an interest in these issues, such as their predecessors Peter Linton-Smith, Morgan Loew, Chip Yost, Som Lisaius, and Bud Foster at KOLD-TV, and others at KGUN-TV, KVOA-TV, and KUAT-TV, the reporting staff of the Arizona Daily Star (editorial editor Jim Kiser, primarily), and local radio talk shows including The John C. Scott Show (KTUC, KTKT, and KVOI) and the former Inside Track program (hosted by political expert and fervent American patriot, Emil Franzi). This is of even greater concern since the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, whose inauguration may bring even more Draconian measures than those taken since 9/11, despite his promises to the contrary. Do not rest in working for the protection of your civil and consumer rights in America, for they are the backbone of what has made America great since 1776. For more information on how to accumulate data and to bring new stories on these issues to the the press and government, please contact me at the Center for the Study of Privacy Rights, P.O.

I gotta agree with CW13. I like to see all sides and make up my own mind.
I don't follow any party line, I'm independent (can think for myself).
I like to hear from both sides. If you don't like it I strongly suggest that you blow it out your ass. Besides, it's always good for a laugh.
Why do right wingers read the TW if they hate liberal views? What do they expect? There's plenty of periodicals that cater to their philosophy. And its the same people week after week. Simply amazes me.
Not to worry.
The "dream" is over in 8 days!
The answer to world poverty and oppression is not for everyone to move to the United States. There are probably 3 billion people on Earth just as deserving as the people written about in the article. Obviously they can't all move here. More poor people are born every year than currenly immigrate to the United States.
Besides, why is the United States a safe place to move to? The rule of law. What does illegal immigration degrade? The rule of law. Whoops!
But the folks who write these articles get to feel good about themselves without actually doing any hard work and that's what liberalism is all about.
If I were a citizen of a foreign country and I wanted to move to the USA why should I go through the trouble and cost of legal immigration when there are all these gullible cities offering defacto citizenship for breaking the law?
Why? There is a good reason Tucson has become a political and economic backwater, truly we are the Detroit of the southwest.
President Obama just put up a Cuban wall.
The Tucson Weekly should read these comments and take note:
In 2006 This commentary on this kind of "border" story got 99% approval; now the results are almost reversed with an approximately 95% approval to 5% disapproval.
You'd THINK the Weekly just MIGHT want to do a "balanced" story illustrating BOTH sides of the issue; but of course they won't. They won't because it would expose the lie that all those who want to protect the border, are racists!
What about it Weekly?
Do you want to report news and real public opinion?
Or do you want to continue to spew outdated propaganda?
Don't you realize that Margo Cowan and Isabel Garcia have exposed our community, including illegal aliens, to incredible misery and hardship?
Don't you realize the "Raza Revolution" has lost?
Stephen this mess has made it harder on families like yours that did enter legally. We can not reward law breakers as Mr Obama has done. If it takes a wall, it takes a wall. I don't really care who pays for it, but right now we are being over run.
I am the son an great grandson of LEGAL immigrants to the United States. I am so sick of our leaders not enforcing our immigration laws, and people granting "sanctuary" for people who are here illegally. Stop aiding and abetting this, please. Make it easier for people to gain citizenship legally, make it quicker, if you think we can and should, but stop honoring people who are currently here illegally. Defend our citizens and our borders. Other countries do so routinely; we should, too. I'm not in favor of demonizing immigrants, otherwise I'd be a hypocrite. I just want our leaders to do their duties and not turn a blind eye to illegal immigration.
Already it's starting. I love it.
I just don't understand why people feel that they are entitled to citizenship without going through the proper channels. Is that asking too much? What makes them think that they're better than people who came here legally? There are thousands of Mexicans here legally. They're the ones who really should be pissed. And believe me they are. I worked for Pima County for 14 years and I know a lot of Mexican Americans who came here legally and agree with me. I'm going to ask a small favor. When you hit dislike at least have the cojones to tell me where I'm wrong.
MORE propaganda from the local, left wing, pro communist, "pro raza" Open Border community that has spent the better part of 3 decades (remember the "Manzo Project" Margo?) "aiding and abetting, enticing and inviting and otherwise encouraging the illegal entry of impoverished Mexican citizens for political and economic exploitation."
Working for the demented nightmare of Aztlan; Feeding the endless appetite of republican business for "Cheap" labor willing to work twice as hard for half as much money. Decimating the wages of legal local worker citizens, or holders of Green Cards, the majority of which are "hispanic" or of Mexican origins.
Guess what Margo?
As I told you last summer at the Trump rally: your side has lost.
Your side is going down.
Isabel Garcia is "going down" in U.S. District Court next summer. Read this: https://www.scribd.com/document/328793929/…
Keep it up at this pace and your black heart will explode by the end of the week.
Being nice is obviously a real chore for you.
We have a legal immigration process. You dishonor the law abiders. Go home and start over.
"They're the golden kids."
Indeed they are - they are worth over $10,000 per year per head of confiscated tax dollars to liberals. They are the economic driver of Tucson, the government.
Arizona Has Least Recession Recovered Cities
Tucson is the least recession-recovered large city, with Mesa, and Phoenix only beating out Detroit and Tucson.

Come to Tucson. You're welcome here. The Mayor might even give you a key to the city. And bring some children, TUSD needs to fill the seats.
