TUSD is going to spend over $2.2 million not on educating students in magnet schools but by paying the salaries of Tucson Police officers who will be placed in the mostly-Latino schools full-time. The TPD chief has said repeatedly that his officers MUST obey the state law, which includes enforcing SB1070 on children.

It’s a popular meme by now and we all know what is going happen whenever a white man begins his sentence with “I’m not a racist, but…”
Arizona’s Own Espresso Pundit has decided to search his own blog comments for posts by the infamous “Falcon9” who we all now know as our state superintendent John Huppenthal. He has a whole gem of pendejadas by our top school chief compiled into a PDF, so I thought it would be interesting to do a search of it for the word “racist.”

The great state of Arizona has a bill in the works to ban sewage access to undocumented human beings living here.
State Senator Frank Gabacho took to the Senate Floor and said “Mexicans are coming here illegally and literally shitting all over our country. And now we have to use our precious water to dispose of their illegal feces?”
The new bill would require each household that is connected to the public sewage system to first get a license before the local municipality allows any waste to be discharged from the house.
“We’ve already got enough problems here in the desert and we don’t need to deal with anymore crap from these illegals. They should deal with their own crap. This bill is also meant to make life so miserable that these wetbacks will self-deport back to Mexico,” Sen. Gabacho added.

It created a state crime if an immigrant was not carrying an alien registration document. Section 27 forbid citizens from entering into contracts with illegal immigrants.
