Here's a summary of my response to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signing on Friday a monumentally degrading anti-illegal immigrant bill: So stupid.
SB1070 is not some kind of anomaly. Rabidly reactionary anti-immigrant bills pop up across the country and even in Congress. Remember what happened after HR 4437, the so-called Sensenbrenner bill? Massive, massive demonstrations of millions upon millions in cities and towns across the great United States -- the political awakening for scores of immigrants and their families.
HR 4437 subsequently died, and four years later, the demonstrations continue.
Could SB1070 beget the same future for Arizona? We'll find out if the good citizens of the state and its neighboring entities heed the call of Zach de la Rocha, and move upon the state capitol on Sunday to express their displeasure with Brewer and the Arizona legislature.
Rage against the machine, indeed.
