And yes, it is sad that the issue has spilled over and made it uncomfortable for people of Hispanic descent.
Oh, I see. I got the impression you were moving due to the hostile environment in Arizona. Sorry, but I’m not familiar with New Mexico. Good luck.

I'm so sorry to read this

One thing I've always liked about Phoenix and Arizona
is the Hispanic culture and it's people proud of their
roots, I truly believe your sincere in your post as to some
I've read here on C/D.

I'd suggest a Wednesday through Sunday trip to Albuquerque to really get a feel, I've been there enough
to think of it as a smaller Phoenix.

I can't blame you for wanting to leave Phoenix and Russ Pearces National Socialist Movement if you are not Arayan Arizona can be a real challenge.
Alberquerque seems friendly enough, I've had some problems around Santa Fe

Being a non-white citizen or legal immigrant is a challenge in Arizona? What sort of challenges are there?

This video had nothing to do with some guy in a Turbin being shot. As for some so-called white neo-nazis supporting Arapaio so what? I have seen many brown reconquistas supporting and being at pro-illegal immigration rallies also. Does that mean that the pro-illegal movement is based on that agenda then?

There are both white and brown supremists in every state not just Arizona but they don't represent the majority so why even bring them up?

Russ Pearce is the Mojority leader in the State Senate and author of SB1070.
JT Ready is Fuhrer of the National Socialist Movement of Arizona (NAZI Party) in the Video above Ready and his Storm Troopers were pout supporting Sherrif Joe. It appears pretty obvious that the Arizona Nazis are part of the Arizona Republican Party
