The video above was taken on Day 2 of the Spring Break at the Capitol week-long protests.
There was a hosted BBQ on the lawn in the tent you can see. I heard it was hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and they are actually opposed to SB1611 and the other anti-immigrant bills since our budget is being neglected and Arizona’s image is scaring off business.
All the legislators were invited and even Jan Brewer showed up.
There were many things going on, and I was sometimes talking to our elected officials, so I captured video when I could, but you can meet some of Arizona’s angels and demons, depending on your perspective.
I captured video of many from the Tucson delegation, and even some of Arizona’s more infamous characters, such as the flat-top and mustached man from Lake Havasu, Ron Gould, author of the 14th Amendment bills and the firearms omnibus.
Yet there was one state senator that requires armed escort when she walks by.
Can you guess who?
It is a Democrat, and she not only voted for two of the 26 anti-immigrant bills, she’s the only Democrat to have written her own, SB1225, that has Ron Gould and Scott Bundgaard as co-sponsors.
The Democratic Diva herself, Kyrsten Sinema, who knows what is best for the Latino community over Latinos, ignoring our calls to kill her anti-immigrant bill, ignoring a lot of what we say because she knows what is best for us. Wanna approach her and ask her questions? The state capitol police will send you away.
To enter the building she needed TWO armed guards, and went in the back way to avoid us. Now what fun is that?
This was definitely the funnest event so far, what we call the Walk of Shame, or the Walk of Fame depending on how you’ve been voting lately.
