MALDEF, ACLU, PFAW sue Escondido over illegal immigration ordinance

Escondido, California (near San Diego) is one of the cities that have passed "Hazleton-style" ordinances, and that's resulted in a predictable legal challenge from various far-left, illegal immigration-supporting non-profit organizations. In this case it's a "coalition" including:

...the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Fair Housing Council of San Diego, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), and People For the American Way (PFAW), is challenging the anti-immigration ordinance passed by the Escondido City Council on October 18 which bans renting an apartment to undocumented residents. The coalition also includes the private law firms of Rosner & Mansfield LLP and Cooley Godward Kronish LLP.

According to this, it's only the ACLU's San Diego chapter. But, the above implies that it's the national ACLU, and note that an earlier warning letter was signed by Omar Jadwat and Jenny Chang of the ACLU Foundation's "Immigrants' Rights Project". There are questions and biased answers about the ordinance here.

While you won't read it in any of the papers, the ACLU's San Diego chapter, MALDEF, and other groups are in a coalition with three groups that are openly collaborating with the Mexican government.

Please, forgive me. But what is this blog about, really -- and why was my letter posted here? I don't wish my email to be posted publicly -- please remove such links.

Thank you --

TLB comments: I have no idea what this off-topic letter is doing here either, but since both comments are from the same IP address I assume your request is to remove your email addresses, which has been done.

Republican Party Headquarters

Dear Mr. Sundheim:

I feel compelled this morning to write to you regarding recent comments made by Republican radio personality Rush Limbaugh on actor/ pro-stem cell activist Michael J. Fox questioning the seriousness of his Parkinson's disease. On October 29, 2006, Fox was interviewed by ABC's "This Week," and Limbaugh (whose grotesque gesticulations and derisive comments appeared on video), declined a request from the show to offer an apology or a rebuttal. I believe that not only were Limbaugh's comments tasteless, but they were revolting, as evidenced by actual video footage of a crass Limbaugh mimicking Fox's condition. This behavior is beyond shameful.

Also, I watched the Round Table portion of the show which included -- as always -- George Will. I'd like to point out that Will was incorrect in stating that our nation's GDP for the most recent quarter was 3%. That is not the case -- it was a disappointing 1.65%. Mr. Will was, however, accurate in that -- although the economy remains relatively strong -- growing lack of support for the Iraq war, plus insecurity over jobs, health benefits and pensions have created worry and frustration. The nature of the jobs available is at issue, here -- with globalization, most jobs are in the service sector, part-time, and offer no benefits. The middle class is dwindling and our hopes for prosperity have diminished. I know this from personal experience. You may recall that a couple of years ago, I applied for a position with the Republican Party -- the only position available and denied to me was contractual, part-time, and offered no benefits. I am still a single mother -- have no permanent job, continue to write screenplays in hopes that someone will produce them, and survive off my savings and my roommates. My resume follows for your contemplation and perhaps even your redolent scorn.

Like my late father, and most members of my family here in California and in Florida, I have been a registered Republican. However, I hope Republicans will lose the House, the Senate -- and eventually the Presidency. Although I still don't feel confident about Democrats on many issues specific to Cuban-Americans, I will definitely not vote Republican. Based on my own analysis on many current events -- including the war in Iraq spectacle -- it seems to me that the Grand Old Party has come to stand for war-mongering, racism, inappropriate sexual behavior and in-your-face pandering to super-wealthy concerns. I feel, thus, alienated and betrayed. Shame on you. Shame on the Republican Party.
