Re: Political Interference
I write to you with great concern about the unwanted and inappropriate political interference exhibited by the City of Tucson in the internal affairs of the Barrio Hollywood Neighborhood Association.
“So let me summarize all this for you, a brown city councilor is using white gentrifiers to suppress a brown neighborhood because it believes in self-determination. Sin verguenza!” – Former aide to the aforementioned brown city councilor.
I sat down to eat lunch and was watching CNN on the TV in the school cafeteria. According to them, everyone should be afraid this weekend, and Americans should give up just a bit of their independence to allow for the growing police state to intrude on their privacy and freedom and liberty because of the evil Islamic State.
Dreamers are disappointed on Brnovich’s decision to appeal instate tuition for DACA recipients.
PHOENIX AZ – July 2, 2015 Attorney General Brnovich’s decision to appeal in-state tuition for dreamers was expected but comes with extreme disappointment. In May, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Arthur Anderson ordered that dreamers who qualify for the Deferred Action Program for Childhood Arrivals program are eligible for in-state tuition at Arizona State Universities and community colleges. Judge Anderson also stated that “Federal law, not state law, determines who is lawfully present in the U.S.”
The City of Tucson is set to ignore the People of the Barrio Hollywood. Westside citizens wonder if their Congressman Raul Grijalva will step in to speak “Truth to Power” or whether he will let those in power destroy the people and the westside barrio he once stood up for… before becoming part of that Power himself.
