COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Supreme Court guts Arizona immigration law SB1070; who won, what to do - 06/25/12

[SEE UPDATE BELOW] The US Supreme Court has struck down three of the four parts of the Arizona immigration law SB 1070, making the law largely ineffective.

Arizona sues feds for failing to enforce border, immigration laws - 02/10/11

Last year, the Department of Justice sued Arizona over that state's immigration law SB1070. Now, Arizona has returned the favor by countersuing the feds, making the obviously correct claim that the feds aren't enforcing our immigration laws as they should. Whether the countersuit will succeed isn't clear, but at the least it might help air just how derelict in their duties the Department of Homeland Security has been. From this: The lawsuit alleges that the federal government has failed in five areas: * To achieve and maintain "operational control" of the border. * To protect Arizona against...

Repudiate Teaparty: vote Democratic except Kirk, Tancredo, and Brewer - 10/29/10

In the election on Tuesday, I strongly urge you to vote against candidates who are part of the Tea Parties movement and against that movement in general. The teaparties are one of the most malignant political movements in the past several decades and must be repudiated; more on that below and see my extensive coverage at that link. I'm also making these specific recommendations:

United Food and Commercial Workers Union calls off Arizona boycott - 09/24/10

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union - UFCW - had been part of the movement to boycott Arizona over their new immigration law. They've now withdrawn from that movement (link), with a Local president saying: "I hope Ms. Brewer joins the call to 'tone it down' and help create solutions for both border security and immigration reform... It is now time for calm, reasoned discussion that can move forward to first secure our borders, while designing a workable, humane plan to finally reform our nation’s immigration laws." The "call to 'tone it down'" followed Jan Brewer pointing out that...

Rachel Maddow smear: Jan Brewer, SB1070, and CCA private prisons (Arizona, Morgan Loew) - 09/07/10

Rachel Maddow and others are implying an absurd claim: that Arizona governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070 - that state's new immigration law - in part to profit Corrections Corporation of America. CCA has a contract with the Department of Homeland Security's ICE agency to provide immigration detention facilities, and two people linked to Brewer are also linked to CCA. For background from far-left illegal immigration supporters, see this and this; the Morgan Loew report from KPHO is here; Brewer's campaign manager responds here [1]. On the video at peekURL.com/v19y5iz (transcript here) Maddow...

Anna Gorman, Nicholas Riccardi: supporting illegal activity is mainstream, tolerant (Los Angeles Times) - 08/02/10

Anna Gorman and Nicholas Riccardi of the Los Angeles Times offer an article with a title more appropriate for an (explicit) advocacy publication: "Arizona was once tolerant of illegal immigrants. What happened?" (link).

Judge guts Arizona immigration law: what you can do (Judge Susan Bolton) - 07/28/10

From this: With scant hours to go before a controversial Arizona immigration law goes into effect, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction Wednesday against the implementation of parts of the law. U.S. District Judge Susan R. Bolton ruled that the federal government "is likely to succeed" in its challenge of the legality of one of the most controversial sections of the Arizona law. That provision required police to "make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a person stopped, detained or arrested" if the officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person is in...

Dana Milbank misleads about Arizona and immigration crime (for the most part) - 07/09/10

[IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW] Dana Milbank of the Washington Post offers "Headless bodies and other immigration tall tales in Arizona" (link) in which he misleads about some aspects of immigration crime in that state, even if he gets some things right. He also helps reveal problems that supporters of Arizona's new immigration law have; more on that below. And, of course, he illustrates again just how much disdain the Beltway establishment has for the concerns of those in border states. I'll stipulate that Milbank is probably correct about Jan Brewer's claims about decapitations, however he cranks...

DOJ may challenge Arizona immigration law: what to do - 06/18/10

Earlier this month in an interview with TV reporter in Ecuador, Hillary Clinton stated that the Department of Justice will be challenging the new Arizona immigration law in court. I was a bit skeptical since she's not the DOJ and she might have been basing it on an assumption rather than knowledge. However, CBS News now offers this (link): Now a senior administration official tells CBS News that the federal government will indeed formally challenge the law when Justice Department lawyers are finished building the case. The official said Justice is still working on building the case. Contacted...

Dennis Welch, Kos, Amanda Terkel, Steve Benen, Ben Smith, Ben Frumin smear Jan Brewer over quote - 06/02/10

Arizona governor Jan Brewer is threatening to cost powerful people money and power through actions such as signing that state's new anti-illegal immigration law. Their lower-level hacks are currently swinging into action, deliberately misinterpreting a quote Brewer made in a disreputable attempt to claim that she inflated her father's war record [UPDATE: Statement from Brewer below]. Some are listed below, and if you find others please leave a comment. During World War 2, Brewer's father worked at a Navy munitions depot in Nevada; he died in 1955 as a result of lung disease from that job....

Brewer signs Arizona immigration law; far-left begins opposition (MALDEF, America's Voice, Phil Gordon) - 04/23/10
