Pigs fly: Liberal Tucson, AZ rejects sanctuary measure

Via CBS News: Voters in one of Arizona’s most liberal cities rejected an initiative Tuesday that would have made Tucson the state’s only sanctuary city amid concerns that it went too far in restricting police officers.

The measure drew fierce opposition from the mayor and city council, all of them Democrats, who said the initiative risked public safety and millions of dollars the city gets from the state and federal governments.

The measure was pushed by activists who wanted to give a voice to Tucson’s Latino community. They said it would have sent the message that immigrants are safe and protected in Tucson at a time when many are fearful of President Trump’s immigration policies.

The initiative, known as Proposition 205, would have put new restrictions on when police can inquire about immigration status or cooperate with federal law enforcement.

It explicitly aims to neuter a 2010 Arizona immigration law known as SB1070, which drew mass protests and a boycott of the state. It prohibits sanctuary cities in Arizona and requires police, when enforcing other laws, to verify the immigration status of anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

Courts threw out much of the law but upheld the requirement for officers to check immigration papers.

“It will put into law that we will not, as we move forward, collaborate in the federal effort to terrorize, detain, separate and deport our community members,” said Zaira Livier, executive director of the People’s Defense Initiative, which organized the effort that became Proposition 205.

Tucson’s mayor and city council members, all of them Democrats, were opposed to the measure because they worried about unintended consequences and the potential for losing millions of dollars in state and federal funding. They say Tucson police have already adopted rules that go as far as legally possible to restrict officers from enforcing federal immigration laws.

This is good news indeed.

Since Hispanics/Latinos make up 41.6% of Tucson’s population (Mexican Americans alone are 36.1% of the city’s population), that means a substantial number of them must have voted against making the city a sanctuary for illegals.

The People’s Defense Initiative..any organization that uses the term “The People’s (fill in the blank)” is almost by definition of bolshevik orientation. Like Bill McKibbens “People’s Climate March” several years ago, which redefined the words pathetic and delusional. They really FEEL that that they can change the climate (why? It’s very stable) by marchin’, marchin’. Presumably The People who participated weren’t allowed to bring their pets; it was after all the people’s march. But seriously all of these leftist organizations need to be classified as fascist terror groups. They remind me of the Red Guards of Mao’s cultural revolution which… Read more »

The dark side has always been big on numerology. It is said that certain demonic entities always appear in 3’s often at 3 AM or 3 33. And they manifest in specific ways emphasizing 3, supposedly to mock the trinity. Most biblical scholars say Jesus Christ was crucified at the age of 33, obviously in 33 AD. Yes Arizona is ground zero..for something

Thank you for the tip, 33s.
I know that the Left had worked assiduously in infiltrating and corrupting Colorado — successfully. They now have their sights on Arizona and Texas. 🙁
