Re: “Modern Slavery

This is what Tucson liberals are facilitating.

"Six out of every 10 women illegally immigrating into the U.S. are estimated to be victims of sexual violence, and many are reportedly taking birth control to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

Re: “Larger Than Life

Just last fall needing an answer to a question regarding a political candidate, I said, "Let's call Martin. He will know or he will find out." And an hour after asking him, I had the accurate answer from Martin. Throughout my 40 years in local politics Martin was a mainstay; a decent gentleman, and a solid support for his wife, family, and friends. We will not soon see his like again. RIP Martin.

Re: “Larger Than Life

Martin was a blessing to his family, his community, his party and his country. Long and fondly will he be remembered.

Re: “Modern Slavery

How did "Salvery" -- in the headline, of all things -- ever get past an editor?

Re: “Modern Slavery

Tucson and Pima County Open Border Policy, or "aiding and abetting, enticing or encouraging, or otherwise encouraging the illegal entry of impoverished Mexican citizens for economic and political exploitation", which the Tucson Weekly SUPPORTS, has contributed HUGELY to this despicable enterprise for more than three decades.

Why doesn't THIS article discuss THAT?

Re: “Give Me Your Huddled Masses

PEW Poll: Upwards of 287 million ISIS supporters in just 11 countries including 1/3 of Syria Refugees…

Survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah. More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.…

The judges need a refresher course in the LAW:
8 U.S. Code 1182 - Inadmissible aliens

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any
class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the
interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such
period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or
any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the
entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

It is IMMORAL to foist all of the Huddled Masses onto the 40% of the US workers left who generate more revenue than they consume in programs and services.

Re: “Give Me Your Huddled Masses

I'm with George Washington when he said about Muslims:
"Would to heaven we had a navy to reform those enemies to mankind or crush them into non existence"
1/16 of the Federal budget went to Islamic Muslim as blackmail to refrain from attacking US ships.

And we NEVER took "Wretched Refuse" in this country. It's when we started taking them that we experienced the down fall:
The English colony of Massachusetts enacted the earliest American public charge (WELFARE) laws in 1645. The arrival in the colonies of undesirables spurred other colonies to enact similar laws. Many colonies protected themselves against public charges through such measures as mandatory reporting of ship passengers, immigrant screening and exclusion upon arrival of designated "undesirables," and requiring bonds for potential public charges.

Massachusetts in 1700 kept out the infirm and disabled who had no security against becoming public charges (Welfare People). The law required ship captains to post bonds for "lame, impotent, or infirm" passengers who were "incapable of maintaining themselves." The bond requirement sought to prevent the new arrival from becoming reliant on public relief. Without a bond from the captain, the vessel had to return the person to his home country.
Under Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), an individual seeking admission to the United States is inadmissible if the individual, "at the time of application for admission, is likely at ANY time to become a public charge (Welfare Recipient)."

Re: “Cultivating Community

I noticed that David Safier, after a load of criticism, just scrubbed all of his suck-up comments from Kristel Foster's FB page. Though Joan Safier is still on there channeling Donald Trump, calling the new board member Rachael Sedgwick a "bitch."


This guy is your education columnist? Come on, Tucson Weekly. Now, of all times. Have some integrity.

Re: “Rural Resistance

A more relevant question would be, why not ask these people about the environmental impact, trash and trail cutting caused by illegal immigration. How about some perspectives on the Cumero fire, which burned over 2,000 acres just over the hills from Arivaca last year?

Re: “Rural Resistance

Maybe because its not relavant! You always try to make it about this rancher and it doesnt have anything to do about the wall.
As far as its known they didnt find evidence enough to charge anybody, they dont know who shot and killed this man. It could of being someone other then someone crossing he border.

Re: “Cultivating Community

It will be great to see them join together and speak out against abortion. I don't know of any faith that endorses it.

Re: “Rural Resistance

Why didn't you interview the widow of slain rancher Krentz, or maybe the survivors of Brian Terry's family? Too close to the truth?
