Latinos Decry "AZ Style" Legislation In CA

LOS ANGELES – California State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly has just announced this week he will be joined in Sacramento next Monday by none other than Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, principal supporter of anti-immigrant legislation SB1070.  The grand occasion is Donnelly’s introduction of Assembly Bill 26, the “Secure Immigration Enforcement Act”, a bill the author describes as an “Arizona-style law”.  The following is a statement from Angelica Salas, executive director for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), a civil and full citizen rights organization based in Los Angeles.

 

“While the Golden State faces serious fiscal troubles, Assemblyman Donnelly prefers to pit Californians against one another introducing an Arizona-style measure seeking to criminalize undocumented immigrants, punish employers who hire them, and push us to the brink of financial abyss with a drove of almost certain legal challenges not unlike Arizona’s SB1070.

 

It does not surprise us that Mr. Donnelly, a Minuteman chapter founder in California, would try everything within his means to continue his reign of xenophobic attacks against immigrants.  What confounds us is that Mr. Donnelly would not use his determination and love of country to help forge consensus amongst his colleagues in the Assembly and get to work on deficit-reductions proposals to benefit all Californians.

 

When California most needs Mr. Donnelly’s leadership and creativity he takes the easy way out and against all factual evidence blames unauthorized immigrants for our state’s fiscal woes.  To make matters worse, Arizona State Senator Pearce, a polarizing figure who has cost the Grand Canyon State millions in lost revenue and tax-payer dollars in legal costs, will join Donnelly in Sacramento to help him push the measure.

 

Donnelly’s AB26 is not worthy of the paper it’s printed on much less of becoming a law in the most diverse and fair-minded state in the nation.”
