SANTA BARBARA RESIDENTS PROTEST ANTI-IMMGRANT ARIZONA LAW, DEMAND LOCAL CITY COUNCIL ACTION
SEVERAL TO CONDUCT PEACEFUL CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE
Date: May 26, 2010 Contact: Armando Carmona, Nayra Pacheco, Jeb Sprague, Nathaly Arriola
SANTA BARBARA, CA: Local students, professors, and community members in Santa Barbara are demanding immediate repeal of the racist Arizona law SB1070 and of all repressive anti-immigrant legislation.
Protesters will gather in downtown Santa Barbara Thursday, May 27, at noon. A number of the protesters will risk arrest in an act of peaceful civil disobedience in order to press their demands.
The protesters will call for the City Council of Santa Barbara to cut all business ties with companies based out of Arizona, to declare Santa Barbara a sanctuary for immigrants, and to push for California state legislation that allows immigrants, regardless of the legal status, to obtain drivers licenses.
In addition to repeal of SB1070 and local action by the City Council, the protesters will demand: ... [ more ]

Keep in mind that the university of California at Santa Barbara is a very large college and has considerable influence on the city. Otherwise I don't think the city of Santa Barbara is overly invested in boycotting Arizona but I could be wrong.

Why can't any of these people see the distinction between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigrants?

I think they can. But they see an additional distinction that those who jump to the legal/illegal argument seem to miss -- respecting civil rights! Yes, as an "illegal" immigrant in America, you have civil rights (thank God). According to the U.S. Constitution, a person's residency status takes a distant second seat in priority to the first priority -- assuring protection of civil rights. For the people who are protesting Arizona's new law, one of the things they're protesting is the erosion of this first priority in America's Constitution.

I think the only "civil rights" border jumpers have are the right to a speedy trial, incarceration and deportation!

As always, academe doesn't live in the real world and subverts our impressionable youth.

Wonderful! And may all of Arizona's Illegals move on in and take up residence on the beautiful University Campus, on the Santa Barbara public beaches and on the lawns and backyards and bedrooms of the legal citizens of Santa Barbara to exercise their "civil rights," that you are so quick to point out. BTW, do you have room for some of them in your home? If not, don't worry, your next door neighbor will rent out their home to 5 or 6 families and then don't forget, there's always the curb in front of your home where they can park a vehicle and live out of, because they are being brought here in busloads to provide cheap labor and can't afford much else (kind of like indentured slaves, isn't it?) Oh no, that wouldn't be allowed under our constitution, would it? Dear me! Forget that detail...

Give me a break...

If they want civil rights, they should go to the country of their citizenship or apply to immigrate here legally.

I'm far from young and only saying what the U.S. Constitution says. If you don't like what the U.S. Constitution says, there is a process for changing it. It's called the amendment process. Go to it!

That's fine, but it's also beside the point of what the U.S. Constitution says. Personally, I don't care what they do in other countries. I only care what we do here in America.

Santa Barbara has a huge population of Latins. Don't know their legal status in this country, but they speak Spanish, mow the lawns, clean the toilets and live in pretty suffocating conditions on the east and west sides of town. Nothing new.
