Unenviable status: AZ cities on “Extreme Poverty” list

John McCain & Jeff Flake remain committed to importing poverty

Number 2 on the list of American cities with pockets of extreme poverty, topped only by Fresno California, is what is widely regarded as the “Valley of the Sun” — Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ. It’s a good bet the Valley, including numerous affluent areas, would hardly leap to mind as showcasing extreme poverty. 24/7 Wall St. gleans its information from census records.

Listed as Number 6 is Tucson.

The border town of Nogales, Arizona, population 20,699, with a poverty rate of 35.2%, comes in at Number 3 on the list of Poorest Towns in Every State.

Forbes reports that the nation’s highest unemployment is in the border town of El Centro, California which has a whopping 19.6% jobless rate. Yuma, Arizona, another border town, comes in at Number 2 with 18.0% unemployment.

The ongoing influx of uneducated and unskilled illegal aliens and accompanying crime rates continues its choke-hold on American cites. Taxpaying citizens are footing the bill for the numerous benefits they receive in addition to health care, schooling for their children and the costly burdens on the criminal justice system.

John McCain, at age 80 is running for yet another 6-year-term. He’s a .longtime advocate for amnesty for illegals — working with the late Ted Kennedy, then Jon Kyl,  and most recently organizing the Gang of Eight — partnering with his junior seatmate, Jeff Flake. Marco Rubio, Lindsey Grahamesty and a far left Democrat contingent including Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet and Robert Menendez were all part of the McCain/Flake scheme.

Watch these shocking news reports by WTHR Indiana revealing tax loopholes accessed by illegals that are costing Americans $ billions.

In the unlikely event  you’re able to get into one of McCain’s forums, where the audience is most often pre-selected by his handlers, it would be good to ask him why he’s intent on importing poverty. Simple question for a simple guy.

This editorial, “Sorry, But Illegal Aliens Cost the U.S. Plenty,” posted on Investor’s Business Daily is chock full of good information and includes intellectual pins to pop the untruthful bubbles that are floated by the left and McRINOs.

    After the story of the sexual assault perpetrated by 3 male foreign immigrants on a disabled 5 year old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho a few weeks ago, we get this threat from the US Attorney for Idaho—–who was appointed by Obama in 2010.

    The United States Attorney’s Office further encourages community members in Twin Falls and throughout Idaho to remain calm and supportive, to pay close attention to the facts that have been released by law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney, and to avoid spreading false rumors and inaccuracies.

    “Grant Loebs is an experienced prosecutor, and Chief Craig Kingsbury is an experienced law enforcement officer. They are moving fairly and thoughtfully in this case,” said Wendy J. Olson, U.S. Attorney for Idaho. “As Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury informed the public, the subjects in this case are juveniles, ages 14, 10 and 7. The criminal justice system, whether at the state or federal level, requires that juveniles be afforded a specific process with significant restrictions on the information that can be released. The fact that the subjects are juveniles in no way lessens the harm to or impact on the victim and her family. The spread of false information or inflammatory or threatening statements about the perpetrators or the crime itself reduces public safety and may violate federal law. We have seen time and again that the spread of falsehoods about refugees divides our communities. I urge all citizens and residents to allow Mr. Loebs and Chief Kingsbury and their teams to do their jobs.”

    Get it? You may violate Federal law by speaking out.

    Hells bells, it took 8 hours for the local police to respond, after repeated phone calls by residents. And even then, there was no police response to locate the perps, even though an adult female had been the one to happen upon the scene and see the perps FILMING the incident as it was taking place.

    On another sad note for the USA, it is learned that the government of Ethiopia has decided to destroy 69 million unused condoms which were donated to that country by various health organizations from around the globe.

    Get ready for 69 million Ethiopian refugees in the near future.

    SCOTUS, just this morning, gave another free pass to abortionists.
    The SCum Of The US was concerned about “women’s rights”.

    What about just plain old LIFE, to include the life of unborn humans?

    Every day, it gets a little darker.

    Guard your soul.

    The Indiana television station has provided a powerful service with these exposes. They should have originated here in Arizona, but the local media is too busy providing cover to the “good people” just trying to better their lives by invading our state and country. Kudos to WTHR for this ongoing report that began in 2012 and continues to be updated in 2016. So far it’s a twelve part series.

    Unreal. Illegal Immigrants Shut Down Atlanta Highway in Protest to Stop Deportations

    Illegal alien activists are so emboldened in America that they are shutting down highways in protest!

    deporting illegals is the only answer and the biggest issue facing us.

    Police were forced to use Tasers on Cuban migrants who arrived on a Miami beach armed with guns and machetes.

    Around 200 stunned sunbathers watched as the 11 illegal immigrants, also carrying knives, were confronted by officers at Dania Beach, Florida, on Sunday afternoon.

    They were initially spotted off the coast holding knives to their stomach, threatening to hurt themselves if they were taken into custody at sea, following the 347-mile journey from their homeland.

    Also reported in Lexington, Virginia and Dallas TX, multiple flat bed tractor trailers hauling armored vehicles marked with UN insignia.
    We, the people of the U.S., are being replaced.

    As Obama tango’d across a dance floor in the San Fran area after a “fundraiser” last Friday, not one word about the people of West Virginia who have lost everything to flood waters.
    Not one word about the people who have lost their lives and their homes in California due to the ongoing, ever-growing wildfires.

    ‘Cause, after all, the photos show that they were whiteys—-just like the ones that Obama warned about at the Global Entrepreneurship Conference (in CA) last week.

    Maybe he’ll do a fly-over to view the devastation, so he can get his daily chuckles.

    Here’s McCain’s campaign slogan: “Fighting for a stronger, more prosperous Arizona and America”

    How can that be when he’s committed to importing poverty.
    If anyone deserves to lose an election this year – it’s this dilettante who does nothing for Arizona or America. Although he does work hard against Conservatives – like George Will and the Bushes.

    • Patriot Dad says:

      What would possess those who are elected to represent us to throw us to the curb in favor of illegals? Why does the media give them precedent over American citizens? Only Donald Trump is addressing this massive problem, which is why he beat out a stage full of governors and senators during the debates. Americans are fed up with being lied to and taken advantage of. We are tired of being invaded and paying dearly for the “privilege.” Vote for Señor Juan McAmnesty and Jeff the Flake and you ensure the continuation of this insane abuse and a vastly different and less safe America for your children and grandchildren. This isn’t rocket science, folks.

  6. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Another informative post, SRAZ. Thanks. I’m sending the link out to others. Arizonans need to rid ourselves of the lousy senators we have. Our chance to dump the Republicrat McCain is coming up soon. Vote for Dr. Kelli Ward. She’s the real deal and will make us proud.


    Send her a donation. She is challenging an entrenched, elderly incumbent who’s been in DC for decades. Lobbyists keep his skids greased since he does their bidding. If you want change, DO SOMETHING!!!!!

    Muslim Community Donates $87K To Family of Orlando Shooter

    This is the mentality of “immigrants” from the Middle East. Not ALL, but enough to throw our country into chaos when they become a certain percentage of the population.

    A radical Muslim wants to kill you.
    A moderate Muslim wants a radical Muslim to kill you.
