Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just signed the most uncivilized, racist piece of legislation in the history of this state. After thousands of emails, letters, editorials and demonstrations in protest of this bill, she ultimately sided with state Senator Russell Pearce who sponsored the immigration legislation.
Senator Pearce formerly worked for Joe Arpaio, the notorious Maricopa County Sheriff who is currently under investigation by the federal government for alleged racial profiling. This new Arizona immigration law will effectively legalize some of the racial profiling practices performed by his group.
Coupled with recent gun-rights bills making it legal to carry loaded weapons into bars and to carry concealed weapons without permits, this law rightfully places Arizona in the distinct category of being the last remnant of “The Wild West.”
I’m not too sure many people really want to visit or live in “The Wild West” anymore.
I’m out a here!
