Arizona groups want to get 50,000 new Latino voters

Immigrant-rights groups say they’re launching what they call a massive effort to register and turn out Latino voters because of a new Arizona law targeting illegal immigrants.

The groups want to turn out 50,000 Latinos who otherwise would not vote in November’s election. They say they’re mobilizing 2,000 volunteers to reach that goal.

The groups include Mi Familia Vota, Democracia USA, Border Action Network and the Arizona Center for Empowerment.

They say they want to help guide Arizona away from divisive policies and politicians.

  1. Seems like there are at least 4 new organizations that Joe could look at regarding undocumented workers. Bet those groups don’t use e-verify.

  2. So what is occurring to offset this is my question.

  3. If Joe tries to obstruct the voter registration process, he will be in violation of the Voting Rights Act, and he could find himself in prison! I hope those 50,000 new voters clean up AZ of all the racist trash in the state government.

  4. There is a problem with the terms used in this news story.
    Especial the term “immigrant -rights groups” and “illegal immigrants”.
    To clrify-

    An “immigrant” is an individual who already has legal immigration status. They have allegiance to a foreign power, but have indicated a intent to transfer their allegiance to the United States and become US citizens. They have entered the USA legally. They bear a passport or other documents defining to whom their allegiance is currently pledged.

    An “illegal immigrant” is an individual who already has legal immigration status. They have allegiance to a foreign power, but have indicated a intent to transfer their allegiance to the United States and become US citizens. They have entered the USA legally. They bear a passport or other documents defining to whom their allegiance is currently pledged. They have been convicted of a crime within the US. This makes them an “illegal immigrant” and probably loose the legal immigration status and become deported.

    An “alien” is an individual who has allegiance to a foreign power. They bear a passport or other documents defining to whom their allegiance is currently pledged. They have no intent to transfer their allegiance to the United States and become US citizens. They have entered the USA legally. Examples are foreign tourists and foreign diplomats.
    An “illegal alien” is an individual who has allegiance to a foreign power. They bear a no passport or other documents defining to whom their allegiance is currently pledged. They have become illegal by illegal entry to the US. They have entered the USA illegally and violated US law. Illegal aliens have no status as immigrants nor legal status whatsover. If they are on your property they are trespassers. They are subject to immediate arrest as criminals.

    “Immigrant-rights groups” need not be a group as any attorney may assist a bona-fide “immigrant” (as defined above) in gaining their US citizenship in the legal and lawful manner. Many will do so pro bono.

    “Illegal immigrants” (as defined above) have NO right to vote and are criminals with allegiance to a foreign power having entered the USA illegally. Anyone aiding, abetting or becoming a principal in a racketeering conspiracy to get “illegal immigrants” or “illegal aliens” (as defined above) is committing a Federal felony and is subject to 5 years imprisonment upon conviction, not counting seizure of automobiles, property, or moneys used in the racketeering conspiracy.

  5. Bringing in and harboring certain aliens
    8 U.S.C. § 1324 : US Code – Section 1324:
    http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/uscode/8/12/II/VIII/1324

    Encouraging and Harboring Illegal Aliens
    It is a violation of law for any person to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection in any place, including any building or means of transportation, any alien who is in the United States in violation of law. HARBORING MEANS ANY CONDUCT THAT TENDS TO SUBSTANTIALLY FACILITATE AN ALIEN TO REMAIN IN THE U.S. ILLEGALLY.
    The sheltering need not be clandestine, and harboring covers aliens arrested outdoors, as well as in a building.
    This provision includes harboring an alien who entered the U.S. legally but has since lost his legal status.

    The penalty for felony harboring is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years.
    The penalty for felony alien smuggling is a fine and up to ten years’ imprisonment.
    Where the crime causes serious bodily injury or places the life of any person in jeopardy, the penalty is a fine and up to twenty years’ imprisonment.
    If the criminal smuggling or harboring results in the death of any person, the penalty can include life imprisonment.
    Convictions for aiding, abetting, or conspiracy to commit alien smuggling or harboring, carry the same penalties.
