Los Angeles City Council's Ridiculously STUPID Boycott of Arizona
You'd think they would be concerned over ACTUAL civil rights violations, instead of the "potential" for some. LACC, for your information, there are tribes like Pechanga, Picayune, Redding here in California that have ACTUALLY violated the civil rights of their people. We are not ILLEGAL immigrants, we are YOUR fellow citizens. Try the boycott HERE first. Describe to YOUR city members, what has happened HERE. •Stripped tribal members of their citizenship •Denied voting rights to members •Taken away rightful healthcare to seniors •Blocked access to land on the reservation Councilman Ed Reyes said this: Los Angeles the second-largest city in this country, an immigrant city, an international city. It needs to have its voice heard,’’ Councilman Ed Reyes said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “As an American, I cannot go to Arizona today without a passport. If I come across an officer who’s having a bad day and feels that the picture on my ID is not me, I can be … deported, no questions asked. That is not American.” You, sir, are a dumbass. Try reading the law. Turn your ire to the tribes here, that have violated the rights of some of their people.
