Changing Phoenix police’s immigration-enforcement policies will create a climate of fear in Phoenix that could lead to multimillion-dollar lawsuits and even riots, speakers said Thursday at a raucous town hall.

From the audience, supporters of drafting a new policy said police need more freedom to enforce the law and said their voices weren’t being heard Thursday night.

About 600 people packed the auditorium at South Mountain High School to address a four-man panel convened by Mayor Phil Gordon to review Operations Order 1.4.

The policy prevents police in most cases from asking about a person’s immigration status. It has led some to brand Phoenix as a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.

“Don’t let Phoenix become the next Watts, the next LA riots,” Alex Navidad, an immigration lawyer, said in an impassioned plea to the panel. “That’s what’s going to happen. A community that’s fearful, with loads of police, can only lead to tragedy.”

Phoenix police are already overburdened without having to enforce immigration laws, said Lizzette Alameda Zubey, president of the Maricopa County Hispanic Bar Association. She said that eliminating the policy would lead to expensive racial-profiling lawsuits against the city, as well as additional costs for processing and jailing undocumented residents.

    Am I getting this right? Two hispanic lawyers are out there begging for our laws not to be enforced or the people they represent will cause riots, destruction, and law suits?

  2. Zorro says:

    Oh yeah that should make people really supportive of illegal aliens… if they resort to violence. They think the Minutemen are vigilantes now? Just wait till they start becoming violent because we won’t roll over and let them invade. Then they will find out about how the Arizona right to carry gun laws are gonna stop that right in its tracks… lmao!

  3. Zorro says:

    Oh.. and isn’t that called “hate speech”? That fits right into SB 1969 - inciting violence through speech…. hmmm…

  4. Eddie B. says:

    I would say that this is called SEDITION.

    Hello…. McFBI… McDHS…. Hello!!! Anybody home? McChertoff???…. hola….

    ?That?s what?s going to happen. A community [LIKE OURS] that?s fearful, with loads of police, can only lead to tragedy.?
    Maybe for YOUR ‘community’, sir.
    Shoe on the other foot, if there were hundreds of thousands of illegal Americans squatting in Mexico City and the locals got sick of us, do you really think that we would resort to rioting? or essentially threatening insurrection?
    That is a fundamental difference between us.
    They get what they demand LAW BE DAMNED of us or we must face violence.
    Can they NEVER see why we dont want anything to do with them?

    There is no blindness more complete than the one caused by “Pride”.

    This is befitting; sounds like master plan is going like clockwork - or maybe not

    Riots should garner shoot to kill policies from the city mayors and law enforcement. But i’m sure that wouldn’t happen as long as the rioters are non-americans.

  9. Eddie B. says:

    Good article Angel! It is coming for sure. I work for a defense contractor that is over in Iraq and we are not moving to peace keeping activities. Everything is warfighter. Everything.

    I hate working for this company too. Hate it. When I move to the mountains I am leaving this evil military industruial complex business behind and that is a fact.

    The war machine is tuning up.

    I was there and what a joke. Here is a full synapses of that meeting.

    (Read the entire article and then watch the little video . . .)

    Angel: I bumped into that article the other day. I suggest everyone not only read it, but also print it out to retain a hard copy to show other people. It explains a lot about the big picture.

    Americans got thrown out of a town hall meeting. The remaining people were shouting victoriously in a foreign language. Lawyers for the foreigners state (with a wink): “You better give these people what they want. They might resort to violence if you don’t”.

    We are being PHYSICALLY DISPLACED FROM OUR OWN COUNTRY. It’s so nuts now . . .

  12. Sandman says:

    Eddie, do you think that heading for the mountains would help? That Rense link Angel posted makes you wonder how close we really are to death of America. My inclination is to sell all possessions and leave the country. Life in America after a dollar crash will be hellish and very painful for most. There will likely be a civil war with many different groups. Can anyone imagine what large cities with large minority populations will be like after a crash? I really feel a strong urge inside to BAIL OUT NOW!
