BILL HEMMER (HOST): In June the White House announced a new plan if you were here in the U.S. before the age of 16, and you are younger than the age of 31, and you’ve been here at least five years, you can stay. That is the broad outline of his proposal passed over the summer. What you’re arguing is that the law of the land in Arizona if you’re illegal undocumented you don’t get the same rights as those who are legal, correct?
BREWER: The state is the one who licenses the people to be able to drive, it’s not the federal government. And we don’t license kids under 16. We don’t license DUI drivers. And our laws are very clear and I took an oath to uphold that.
Because being undocumented is the exact same thing as being a child and a drunk driver. And I am absolutely not surprised you’re being sued either, Brewer.
p.s. I had to fix Hemmer’s I-word bomb. Because Fox “News” insists on still using “illegal” to describe people’s humanity. Of course.
Americans who rely on Fox News or conservative radio as their main sources of information are more likely to have negative views of Latinos and immigrants than those who watch more mainstream outlets. That’s according to a new study by the National Hispanic Media Coalition, which found that “[c]onservative talk radio and Fox News audiences hold significantly more anti-immigrant and anti-Latino opinions.” NHMC stated that Fox News audiences are “more likely to agree that Latinos are on welfare (56%), take jobs from Americans (43%) and have too many children (42%).”
My name is Xochitl and I blog politics. I am passionate about immigration and Latin American affairs. This blog is for the most part a strong reflection of that. I also co-run and am the creator of Reclaiming The Latina Tag and Spanish, Yeah
Why, yes. This is a sequel.
