Phil “No human is illegal” Gordon

AZ Central

Anti-illegal-immigration activists will attempt to recall Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon for policies they say are too soft on those who enter the country illegally.

A group calling itself American Citizens United, which includes members of organizations involved in recent anti-illegal-immigrant protests, filed paperwork Wednesday to create a political-action committee.

“Phil Gordon has operated the Mayor’s Office with malfeasance in refusing to execute his sworn oath of office,” the group said in its filing.

It accused Gordon of “disregarding the will of Phoenix citizens by refusing to allow the Phoenix Police Department to impartially enforce laws against violators of laws on illegal immigration and human smuggling.”

The group will discuss the recall at a press conference this morning at City Hall (April 30th).

Anna Gaines, the group’s chairwoman, said she and her supporters are angry that Phoenix police do not have unconditional authority to call Immigrations and Customs Enforcement when they encounter a suspected illegal immigrant.

“The main issue is that he has been dividing the community and he has not supported the enforcement of immigration laws,” said Gaines, a member of You Don’t Speak For Me, a group of Hispanic activists opposed to illegal immigration.

“A few on the very fringe want to promote their extremist agenda for Phoenix,” Gordon said in a statement. “That agenda was overwhelmingly rejected just eight months ago, and it will be rejected again.”

To recall the mayor, the activists must gather 23,751 valid signatures. The number of signatures is equal to a quarter of the votes cast in the previous mayoral election.

The group has 120 days from the time they file their formal campaign paperwork, said Mary Jo Slunder, Phoenix elections coordinator.

    I do not live in Arizona how ever would recommend that this recall attempt MUST be successful or else it will become yet another failed attempt to hold a public elected official accountable for dereliction of duty, and a failure would only empower the open borders crowd. A failure would be seen as a fact that Americans really are for immigration when it comes down to it and that pro illegal immigration politicians are favored by the masses and anti illegal immigration groups are powerless against the will of the majority. All are far from the truth, but we all know how the open borders crowds misinterpret everything including the law.

    This recall must be a success and anything we can do even though we may live in another State would help. If the recall is a success, it would send a clear message to the other traitor leaders that American citizens are in charge and that politicians can and will be replaced if they refuse to do the will of the people.

    Matthew above said it all much better than I could.

    The message that the people of the United States of America are fed up with the traitorous politicians must be shouted loud and clear.

    They work for us. They must do OUR bidding or they will be thrown out on their “A’s”.
