More joyous diversity
It seems as though illegal immigration advocates will never be satisfied. After Judge Susan Bolton blocked the
most controversial parts of SB 1070, essentially taking out all real
power from the bill, a group known as "Freedom for Arizona," committed
an act of domestic terrorism by spreading out over 15 tires connected by
rope and covered in tar, a banner, brown paint and shards of broken
glass across I-19 in Arizona, a busy interstate with a 65 mph speed
limit covering approximatly 70 miles between Tucson and Nogales. This
action not only stopped all traffic flow, but could have killed innocent
people in the process.
The goal of the tires, glass and paint was to stop all
deportations back to Mexico as well as stopping all capital flow to
damage the economy. The banner placed across the interstate read, "Stop
All Militarization! The Border is Illegal!"
The group took full responsibility for the closure on their blog, Resistance to SB1070: No Borders, No State No Papers:
Partial justice is no justice at all! Despite Judge ruling to
block parts of SB 1070, racial-profiling, raids, deportations and the
militarization of the border will continue unchallenged. This is why
today we shut down Interstate 19 (I-19).
