NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST ARIZONA SB1070

Introduction: The Mexican American Political Association (MAPA) makes a call to support with your presence the National Day of Action Against Arizona SB1070 as called for by the organizations Tonatierra, Puente, and the National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON), and the National Latino Congreso and its affiliate conveners and organizations. I encourage you to follow the links on this page from the organization Tonatierra, which is on the frontlines (for many years), local grassroots community workers, immigrants, migrants, organizers, youth, teachers – just good common people who refuse to be bowed by the forces of evil and political extremism in Arizona or from Washington, D.C.

These organizations have been in the forefront opposing all of the worst enforcement policies of the Obama administration and the previous Bush administration, and those of the former Arizona governor, Janet Napolitano, now Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and those policies and practices implemented by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

We join Tonatierra, Puente, NDLON, and the Coalition for Human Rights (Tucson, AZ) in calling on President Barack Obama and his administration to immediately put an end to the following enforcement programs; 287g (federal immigration and local police collaboration), Secure Communities (requires ALL local and state police agencies to work with the federal immigration enforcement), and Operation Streamline (expedited judicial processing of all migrant detainees without adequate legal defense or advocacy, and prolonged imprisonment in private immigration prisons).

Lastly, join us in the LIBERTY RIDE TO ARIZONA for the May 29th mobilization. Sign-up for the bus caravan at the MAPA Convention on Saturday, May 22, 2010 at the Methodist Church in the Placita Olvera, Los Angeles from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Also, join us for the PROTEST ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS AT DODGER STADIUM on May 31st. No to the Diamondbacks in Los Angeles. Sign-up at the MAPA Convention to participate in these actions.

Come and speak directly with Salvador Reza from Tonatierra based in Phoenix, Arizona and Pablo Alvarado of NDLON at the MAPA Convention on Saturday, May 22, 2010.
