Opinion Matters reports that top Democrats were spotted wearing Arizona Anti-Immigration Law bracelets during Mexican President Calderon’s speech where he vehemently criticized Arizona’s new law.
As part of his general boycott of Arizona — which includes his refusal to fly through Phoenix on his weekly trips to and from Washington — Baca, D-Rialto, is distributing wristbands inspired by the Lance Armstrong LiveSTRONG craze.
Baca put in an order for 2,500 of his version, which will be red, yellow and blue — the colors of Arizona’s flag — to be worn as a show of solidarity against the controversial law…
In Washington, Baca has gotten House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and most members of the Democratic leadership to wear them, as they did — along with golfing legend Chi Chi Rodriguez — at a recent fundraiser for Baca. Baca said his office is fielding calls from people inquiring how they can get one of the wristbands.
“Everyone wants them,” Baca said. “They’re going like hot potatoes.”
Meanwhile, polls show a strong majority of Americans support the law (here).
Despite all of this political maneuvering over the new Arizona law, deportations have increased during this current administration versus the previous administration (here). This comes on the heels of the announcment by Napolitano that the federal government just might ignore any illegal immigrants that Arizona reports. So much for trying to do the right thing.
