Arizona is being fed propaganda the likes of which America has not seen since the days of Woodrow Wilson, courtesy of The Arizona Republic.
In an effort to promote its purely leftist / open borders agenda, The Republic is running a multiple part series describing the woes of illegal aliens who are now suffering because of the racists in Arizona who hate all brown people.
Last week's propaganda piece by The Republic described the troubles of a poor illegal family who was so frightened of Arizona's new anti-illegal alien law that they picked up and moved all the way to Pennsylvania.
The article, entitled "Undocumented couple leave SB 1070 behind," began:
"A white Ford pickup with Arizona plates is driving north on U.S. 191 headed for the Utah border. Afraid of encountering police, the family inside is traveling at night. The pickup's headlights cut through a sea of darkness.
The family is in a hurry to get out of Arizona, to get away from the state's harsh new immigration law."
The pickup crosses into Utah at 11:59 p.m. Luis Sanchez breathes a sigh of relief as his wife, Marlen Ramirez, keeps driving. Both are undocumented immigrants from Mexico.
"Look," he says. "We are here. We have arrived in Utah."
They have made it safely out of Arizona, past the Maricopa County sheriff's deputy they saw as they were leaving Surprise and past the highway patrol cars they saw along Interstate 17 between Phoenix and Flagstaff.
Just before leaving, Luis and Marlen broke the news: The dogs would have to stay and would be given to another family. Vanessa (their 10-year-old daughter) turned her head. Tears ran down her face.This week's piece of anti-rule-of-law literature is a compelling story about Oscar Vazquez, a man who recently had the honor of standing before President Barack Hussein Obama as he was introduced as an "outstanding graduate," while receiving his degree in engineering from Arizona State University.
A year later, Vazquez sat in a dark bedroom in this dusty city, his engineering degree tucked in a scrapbook filled with other mementos of his college days.
Even as he listened to Obama speak of brighter futures, Vazquez knew his path first would have to go through Mexico, where he would admit his illegal status and ask for permission to re-enter the U.S.
"I decided to take a gamble and do the right thing," he said.
Shortly after graduation in May 2009, Vazquez moved to Mexico, separating himself from his U.S. citizen wife and year-old daughter in Phoenix. He figures to remain here at least through March, when, according to a letter from the government, authorities will decide whether he can legally return to the United States.
"He showed his degree in mechanical engineering to his bosses," the article describes, "because they didn't really believe he had one."
"Vazquez, 24, did not want to enter the United States illegally. But he was 12 and, despite his protests, did as his mother told him.
These stories tug at heart strings, no doubt. Certainly the plight of many illegals here in America is a difficult situation to frown upon, since it surely is true that most of these people are good, hard working, honest people just like you and I who want nothing more than the best for their families.
I too want the best for these people and their families. I believe that any good person would.
This is why I propose that The National Council of La Raza, as well as any other groups who claim to be for the rights of Latin people, take their argument straight to the source of the problem: the governments of Latin American nations.
Perhaps if these "rights" groups were to pressure the correct nations - the nations from which these poor people have fled for decades due to their Marxist policies, corruption, and absolute lack of concern for their natural citizens - The United States would not have such appeal, and these good people would not be forced to suffer such trials and troubles.
