In a preposterous editorial, the illegal alien promoters at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) spew their rage through clenched teeth. If it’s possible to hear the written word, the spittle belched bile is audible. The venom is aimed at Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who earned the newspaper‘s endorsement last election cycle.
Now the Arizona Attorney General is referred to as “heartless,” by the same crew who lavished him with praise just months ago. His offense? It began with what the daily calls his “hopeless quest to fight ‘dreamer’ driver’s licenses.” Now, he’s appealing a Maricopa County Superior Court decision allowing these “young immigrants” to qualify for in-state college tuition.
Last month, in a similar fit of temper, the newspaper called Brnovich “a new guy making old mistakes” for challenging the “right” of these “good kids” to get Arizona driver’s licenses. The editorialist, doing a heckuva imitation of Linda Valdez, accused Attorney General Brnovich of wasting his time fighting a law, that in the daily’s opinion, “never should have been passed.” He effort was called a “throwback,” earning Arizona’s “reputation as a Latino-hating bastion of bigotry.“
When facts don’t fit its agenda, name calling and slurs are a reliable fallback tactic for the failing newspaper.
The job of the state Attorney General includes enforcing Arizona’s voter protected statutes, whether or not the newspaper approves. Brnovich, who we did not support, is doing just that. For his efforts, he should be commended.
The newspaper actually says such acts are “like kicking puppies “
The editorial warns Brnovich that he shouldn’t count on the Latino vote in his next election, disingenuously fretting that his actions will drive Latinos further away from the Republican Party.
The rank odor of insincerity is overwhelming.
Throughout the editorial the illegals are referred to as simply “dreamers.” That much softer term began life as an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors, morphing into D.R.E.A.Mers and now all lower case and wistful. In fact, the DREAM Act was nothing short of nightmare as Kris Kobach revealed in this 2007 report. The program was a massive amnesty that extended to millions of illegal aliens who claimed they entered the United States before the age of 16, brought by their parents.
Good luck trying to substantiate that or any of the other so-called requirements that needed to be met to qualify.
