`JANET is a lying, fact-misrepresenting Mexican jerk. There will come a day when the average American has had enough of her and her lies and runs her back to Mexico with the rest of the diseased, ignorant, budget-ruining, crime-causing scum they are.”

Since I became head of the National Council of La Raza three years ago, I have received hate mail. My predecessor got it as well.

Typically, we shrug it off as coming with the territory. When people tell me to “go back to where you came from,” I joke that they would be surprised to find they are sending me back home to Kansas.

It is no longer a joke. I received that e-mail above at the height of the immigration debate and have received many more, including death threats. So have many members of my staff. The immigration debate has opened the floodgates to hate speech in this country of ours. Hate and extremists are defining the debate on immigration.

Hate is part of our national legacy. Throughout U.S. history, American Indians, blacks, Irish immigrants and other groups have suffered from injustice stemming from hate. The immigration debate has made the Hispanic community hate’s latest target, and too often, the news media serve as the anti-immigrant bullhorn.

The Internet, television and the political stage have become platforms for hate. Turning the term “illegal” into a noun, nativists, extremists and politicians have broadcast their messages across the country. They demonize

the undocumented and, in turn, all Latinos. They depict us as disease-ridden invaders and criminals.

The media have been instrumental in moving this language from the fringes of society right into our living rooms and everyday lives.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, has warned that immigrant groups are engaged in “competitive breeding” aimed at eliminating white power. He has appeared on MSNBC at least eight times and on CNN at least 18 times. The Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled FAIR a hate group.

Television-talk-show hosts like CNN’s Lou Dobbs have echoed the anti-immigrant hate speech, calling undocumented immigrants “criminals” and an “army of invaders.” Glenn Beck, a CNN commentator, jokingly read an ad that said the one-step solution to the immigration and energy crises is a “giant refinery” that produces “Mexinol,” a fuel made from the bodies of illegal immigrants coming here from Mexico.

The news media are not the only ones willing to work with anti-immigrant extremists; some politicians do, too. Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee accepted the endorsement of Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist, a man who proclaimed he is “proud to be a vigilante.”

The distorted images projected by the media and some politicians have had dangerous consequences. All Latinos become targets for anti-immigrant hate crimes and speech because it is impossible to look at us and determine who is a citizen and who is not.

According to the FBI, anti-Latino hate crimes have increased by 23 percent over the past two years.

The reality is that most immigrants, undocumented and documented, are hardworking and family-oriented – they are a part of our national fabric. Many hold down multiple jobs to provide for their families. The undocumented would choose to be here legally if they could, but the immigration system is broken. For people wanting to come here, there is a 20-year backlog to legal entry.

The only way to combat hate is to confront it with something just as strong, just as pervasive in society – hope. The hope for a better future for all U.S. residents is the driving force behind National Council of La Raza efforts to unite with others to silence hate speech and stop hate crimes.

Last month, I experienced the power of hope firsthand. I was honored to be the first Hispanic keynote speaker at the annual Martin Luther King Jr. unity breakfast in Birmingham, Ala. I urged blacks and Latinos to renew both communities’ historic commitment to promoting equal opportunity for all of us. Unity among all communities will strengthen our resolve to remove hate from the mainstream.

Anti-immigrant groups are using every medium to spread their message of hate. We must be just as persistent with our message of hope. The National Council of La Raza has launched a Web site, http://www.wecanstopthehate.org, as part of our Wave of Hope campaign. We have also written letters to politicians and network executives insisting that they eliminate hate from the immigration debate on their news programs.

Hope is more than just wishing for improvement. It is an expectation backed by action. The media have a responsibility not to amplify the voice of hate. The rest of us have a responsibility to challenge those seeking office to renounce the politics of hate and to distance themselves from those known to be affiliated with hate groups or vigilantes. Together, we can ensure that hope triumphs.

McCain rides his name to GOP victory despite cash-poor campaign

Posted in 2008, Amnesty, Border Security, Campaign, deportation, illegal aliens, illegal immigration, John McCain, Juan Hernandez, Latino, Law Enforcement, McCain, Open Border, pro-amnesty, Sovereignty, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S.-Mexico border, Uncategorized, United States, Voters on February 6, 2008 by americanchaos

By MICHAEL R. BLOOD

LOS ANGELES—Starved for campaign cash, John McCain never ran a TV commercial in California, the surest way to reach voters in the vast state. He didn’t send a piece of mail to voters in a season when mailboxes are stuffed with political advertising.Instead, volunteers dialed up voters and knocked on doors. And McCain went a long way on his name.

The Arizona senator crushed Mitt Romney in the nation’s most populous state on Super Tuesday, cementing his national front-runner status and positioning himself to win most, if not all, of the state’s 170 delegates.

With 92 percent of precincts reporting, McCain had 42 percent of the vote to Romney’s 34 percent. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee trailed with 11 percent.

Just months ago, McCain was all but forgotten in the race after his campaign ran out of money and momentum in the summer. But he regained his footing with wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida, propelling him to a series of wins Tuesday from coast to coast.

He clearly benefited when Rudy Giuliani’s campaign collapsed last week, ending the competition over party moderates.

“McCain is a household name. Romney’s problem was most Californians don’t know who the heck he is,” said Republican analyst Allan Hoffenblum. With the tight primary schedule, Romney “spent all his time and early money in Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan and Florida. There was not enough time for him to create a separate image here in California.”

After overcoming his troubles last year, McCain came to California with built-in advantages: He’s from neighboring Arizona; as a war hero, he has natural appeal with California’s many veterans and active-duty personnel; and he won the endorsement of popular Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who’s been campaigning for him across the state.

A survey of voters leaving polling places found McCain was the overwhelming choice of GOP moderates and those looking for decisive leadership in a time of war. Romney has been fighting to win over conservatives who dominate California’s primary, and the exit poll found he was the favorite of “very conservative” voters as well as those who identified illegal immigration as the nation’s top issue.

Signs of a tightening race sent both candidates hurrying back to California this week, and Romney spent lavishly on TV advertising in hopes of stalling his rival’s momentum.

For the first time this year, California Republicans divvied up delegates based on the winner in each of the state’s 53 congressional districts. McCain soundly defeated his rival from San Diego to the Napa Valley. Fresno County was one place the outcome look inconclusive, according to unofficial returns.

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and wealthy businessman, was unbowed by his Super Tuesday showing.

“We’re going to keep on battling,” he said in Boston.

To no surprise, illegal immigration was a top issue for many California Republicans.

Exit polls found Romney was favored by those who want illegal workers deported and some conservatives saw McCain as the face of liberal immigration policy. But the Arizona senator also won votes for proposing a pathway to citizenship for illegal workers.

Immigration reform “is really the thing that made me vote for him,” said Juan Carlos, 32, a Los Angeles technology consultant who moved to the U.S. from Mexico 15 years ago.

In the closing days of the campaign, McCain aired a tough-talk radio ad on illegal immigration, a sign that he was vulnerable on the issue. “I’ve listened and learned,” he said in the ad. “I’ll hire new border guards, build a fence.”

Another McCain voter, a Sacramento-area Target retail manager Mike Ronnebeck, 45, said he admired the senator because “he works across boundaries with Republicans and Democrats.”

California had long been a forgotten state in the presidential election, a place where candidates came mostly to collect checks in the fundraising centers of Hollywood and Silicon Valley. But this year the state has seen new clout and visibility since moving its primary to Super Tuesday from its traditional June berth.

Mexico’s Ex-President Advocates AMNESTY for ILLEGALS

Mexico’s ex-president advocates law reform

Don Mecoy

Oklahoma and other states have launched immigration legislation because Congress has failed to act, former Mexico President Vicente Fox said Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

Fox, speaking at the Civic Center Music Hall, said the United States must develop a sensible national immigration policy.

“At the very end, it’s a federal issue so in the end it should be satisfied by the federal government, by the U.S. Congress,” Fox said. “Immigration is an asset to every nation. It’s an asset to the United States, no doubt. What we need to do is take advantage of that asset by bringing order to it, and by bringing legality to it.”

Oklahoma lawmakers last year adopted HB 1804, which has been called the toughest immigration statute in the nation.

Fox, 65, president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, spoke at an Executive Management Briefing sponsored by Oklahoma State University’s William S. Spears School of Business. Fox, before his political career, was head of Coca-Cola Latin America.

Fox said he favors a plan similar to a bill authored by Sens. John McCain and Ted Kennedy in 2005 that would have provided a path to legal citizenship for many of the millions of illegal immigrants in the United States. The bill, which never came to a floor vote, also would have provided funding for increased border security.

A reasonable temporary guest worker program would solve many problems by providing documented foreign workers who need good wages for the American economy, Fox said. Fox said most Mexican immigrants don’t want to become American citizens; they want to help their family and then return to their homeland.

“They like better tacos, tortillas and chilies than hot dogs or hamburgers,” he said.

The United States should join its economic might with its neighbors, Mexico and Canada, to meet the challenges of the world marketplace, Fox said.

“This century will be the century of Latin America,” said Fox, who noted that Mexico’s economy is forecast to be the world’s fifth-largest by 2040.

About a dozen protesters from Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise demonstrated outside the Civic Center to voice their opposition to a closer economic relationship between the United States and Mexico.

“I don’t want a North American union established,” protester Robert Forrester said. “That’s why I’m here.”

Fox, whose American-born grandfather emigrated from Ohio to Mexico to find his “American dream,” said only dictatorial governments build structures to keep people in or out such as the wall that has been proposed to control illegal immigration along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I’m totally opposed to building a wall. That’s the worst of the answers to a problem that has to be dealt with among different nations,” Fox said. “The threat to the United States is not immigration. … The threat to the United States is isolation by building a wall.”

Fox suggested support for building a wall to stop illegal immigration might arise from “understandable” fears born in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“I am not for disorder. I am not for walls,” he said. “I am for wisdom.”

In response to questions from the audience of about 500, Fox prompted applause when he said that the United States should withdraw its troops from Iraq “as soon as possible.” Fox opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

Fox, an admitted fan of President Bush, said the next U.S. president will have to rebuild relationships among nations.

“The United States has lost, I’m sorry to say, a lot of respect,” he said.

He also drew laughter and applause when, responding to a hypothetical question about northern Mexico states possibly joining the United States, he suggested that his country instead might re-annex Texas.

Violence on the United States – Mexico Border

By Sam Logan and M Casey McCarty

· Due to increased pressure from the Calderón administration, some members of Mexican organized crime may begin crossing the border in significant numbers to set up US-based operations.

Dozens of murders have resulted from battles between the Mexican security forces and armed criminals along the US-Mexico border since the beginning of this year. It is a spike in violence that has many in the US worried that gunfights may spill across the border, carrying all the reprisals that left a string of Mexican border towns without journalists, mayors, police chiefs and musicians in 2007.

In another bloody encounter for what has already been a violent year, on 7 January a van full of gunmen ran a roadblock outside the border town of Reynosa, Mexico. Mexican soldiers and federal police chased the van to a small house across the street from the Reynosa police station. The gun battle began soon after. In the aftermath, ten suspects were arrested and five policemen were dead. Along with the suspects, Mexican police seized three automatic rifles, an Uzi submachine gun, grenades and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The US Border Patrol has not taken any extra precautions, but is keeping its agents in the field “abreast of the situation,” according to Border Patrol spokesman Oscar Saldana, who recently spoke with ISN Security Watch.

“We’re advising everyone to be on the alert and be extra cautious because of the situation on the Mexican side,” he said.

Others, however, argue that more action must be taken to prevent the establishment of a significant presence of Mexican organized criminals inside the US. However, preparations on the US side of the border are directly linked to a lack of resources from the federal and state levels.

“What has been appropriated is likely spent,” Kent Lundgren, chairman of the National Former Border Patrol Organization, told ISN Security Watch in a recent telephone interview.

And what may come from the federal government in the future will almost certainly be delayed by the US presidential elections.

When the lives of officers are at stake, Lundgren said, law enforcement must prepare for the worst case scenario, which could be the possibility that a small group of armed men could cross the border and encounter a patrol cruiser. The resulting firefight would be no contest. The heavily armed Mexican criminals would easily overcome one or two Border Patrol agents most likely armed with only pistols.

“We have seen no indication that law enforcement in South Texas is prepared for the worse case in this matter,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Mexican government has shifted its posture from reactive to proactive. No longer interested in waiting for Mexican organized crime to strike before responding, Mexican President Felipe Calderón wants to hunt them down, starting with Los Zetas in the northeastern Mexican border state of Tamaulipas.

Los Zetas

Commonly known as the enforcement branch of a top tier Mexican drug trafficking organization (DTO) known as the Gulf Cartel, the founding members of this elite group of hit men are former Mexican soldiers who, once trained, left the rank and file to earn money protecting the black market economy.

During their tenure as a paramilitary force overseeing the transshipment of multiple tons of cocaine across the border into the US, Los Zetas was then given orders and controlled by Osiel Cardenas-Guillen, the former head of the Gulf Cartel now awaiting trial in the US.

The extradition of Cardenas in January 2007 caused a rift in his organization’s structure, removing the one power that had been able to contain Los Zetas and solidifying its status as the real power at the border.

Both before and after this change in leadership, the brazen nature of their attacks could be easily discerned from the day-to-day violence in Mexico. Some corpses left in the wake of a hit had the letter “Z” carved into their backs; standoffs in broad daylight against rival DTOs, police and/or military included hi-tech weaponry such as machine guns and RPGs. Newspapers refer to them as narco-soldiers due to their past military training. Their tactics are smooth and confident and their movements organized.

Los Zetas has seen their status exalted from that of hired goons to full-fledged gatekeepers. And the group is now likely a drug trafficking organization itself, having taken over the Gulf Cartel in a slow but steady process during 2007.

Formerly reserved for members of an elite enforcement unit, the term Zeta has begun to encompass members of the antiquated Gulf DTO, rendering the Gulf Cartel to little more than a name, with Los Zetas running the day-to-day operations from a ground-based standpoint.

Their numbers have been reported in the hundreds, but for Calderón there are now only two that matter. The reputed second in command of Los Zetas, Miguel Treviño Morales, is said to be running Nuevo Laredo’s daily operations, while Heriberto “El Verdugo” Lazcano (The Executioner) is said to be moving between Gulf-controlled cities in Tamaulipas to remain out of site.

It was reported that Lazcano was shot to death in October 2007, but he is now believed to be in the Gulf-controlled state of Tamaulipas, possibly the city of Tampico, the same seaside city where authorities seized 11 tons of cocaine in October 2007.

Manhunt

Rather than back off and acquiesce to the din of cries over human rights and increased violence in the wake of a bloody year, Calderón has stepped up the pressure on Los Zetas. He has focused on the state of Tamaulipas on the US-Mexico border where the group has the strongest presence, and where he can apply high pressure.

Considering that the Gulf Cartel’s headquarters is likely in the town of Rio Bravo, between McAllen and Brownsville, Texas, and that many of Los Zetas’ members are still in the state, the first step of Calderón’s operation was to use soldiers to make a literal cordon around the state.

With the Gulf of Mexico to the east and the US-Mexico border to the north, Calderón has focused on blocking the main roads in Tamaulipas that lead from the neighboring state of Nuevo Leon into the state of Coahuila with the help of some 2,300 Mexican soldiers, according to Patricio Patiño Arias, the deputy minister for intelligence and strategy at Mexico’s Ministry of Public Security.

The deputy minister acknowledges that their fight with Los Zetas has reached a new level of importance since the start of the New Year. Now it is a manhunt, and they are after Lazcano and Treviño, the latter believed to control the lucrative route from Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas: one of the most hotly contested border crossings in all of Mexico.

Patiño Arias told reporters days after the 7 January shootout in Reynosa that the new strategy was “no longer just patrolling” but was now a direct fight “against specific objects, against specific targets that has grown out of important intelligence work.”

Holding the border

But will the border hold? This is a question not so much asked in Washington as in small towns and cities in southern Texas where locals read every day about violent shootouts occurring less than 16 kilometers away across a border that anyone can simply traverse on foot in many areas.

Blocked from escape in any direction but north, leaders and other members of Los Zetas could cross the border into the US as Calderón turns up the pressure in Tamaulipas. If Los Zetas begins running its smuggling operations from inside the US, law enforcement in small Texas towns across the border could be saddled with a serious security threat. But beyond the border, in cities such as Dallas and Houston, law enforcement will also likely feel the brunt of organized crime.

The ten gunmen arrested after the recent Reynosa shootout are all suspected members of Los Zetas, men who report to Treviño. Three of them have US citizenship, suggesting closer ties to the US, specifically Texas, than some may be willing to admit.

Limited resources

Sheriffs of border counties from El Paso to Brownsville, as well as members of the Texas Border Sheriffs Association, have come together to help one another along the Texas-Mexico border in an atmosphere where funds from the federal level are lacking.

“I could use another 50 officers,” Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio told ISN Security Watch, adding, “I have 1,267 square miles to cover. It’s an area larger than the state of Rhode Island.”

Lundgren, of the National Former Border Patrol Organization, believes that no local sheriff or lawman in Texas has the resources or the training necessary for the task. “We believe that in a limited set of circumstances there ought to be military resources on the border that can respond immediately when somebody is in over his head in what is essentially a large-scale firefight,” he said.

“There’s no reason why two border patrolmen or a sheriff’s deputy or anybody else should have to stand there and die just because we’re not prepared to send the troops over to take care of the bad guys in the way it should be done.”

Is Hillary the Best Option for Immigration Patriots?

Mickey’s Single Issue Voter’s Guide: Suppose you were a single issue voter, and your single issue was immigration. Specifically, you were opposed to legislation that combines some form of amnesty (legalization of existing illegal immigrants) with tougher border enforcement. If so, you would probably be pretty depressed right now–three of the four leading presidential candidates explicitly favor such “comprehensive” reform. The fourth, Mitt Romney is the least likely to win. And even he’s suspected of being a closet comprehensivist.

But you still have to vote. Before you did, you’d want to ask: Which of the three pro-legalization candidates is least likely to accomplish their legislative goal? When you think about it this way, a clear and somewhat surprising ranking of top three emerges.

____________________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

 

 

1) Hillary Clinton would probably be the best president for anti-comprehensivists. She’s cautious. She’s been burned by GOP opposition before (to her 1994 health plan). Is she really going attempt both health care reform and immigration reform in her first two years? Remember, Rahm Emmanuel’s swing-state Democratic congressmen typically ran tough-on-illegals campaigns. They’re squeamish about voting for “amnesty.” If Hillary is president (meaning John McCain isn’t president) the Republicans are likely to unite against a Democratic legalization plan. Meanwhile, Hillary’s political adviser James Carville is on record suggesting that legalization, like welfare, is a potential election-loser. Hillary suppporter Paul Krugman seems one of those remaining economists who actually believe in supply and demand–i.e., that an increase in the supply of immigrant labor can drive down unskilled wages. And Hillary herself has made anti-illegals noises in the past, including reversing her endorsement of Gov. Spitzer’s drivers license plan.

2) Barack Obama, on the other hand, may actually believe his standard-left immigration positons. He’s shown an ability to bridge the partisan divide and get things done. All deeply troubling, in this case.. But at least he too would have a hard time getting both a health care plan and immigration legislation through Congress against opposition from Republicans (McCain having lost).

3) President McCain would seem like a replay of George W. Bush. Bush couldn’t get his “comprehensive” immigration plan through, even with a Democratic Congress. What would be different with McCain? Quite a bit. a) McCain’s likely to be more popular, at least if Iraq continues to improve; b) The Democrats are likely to have bigger Congressional majorities; c) McCain might be able to claim voter validation of his long-standing pro-legalization views. Certainly the Republicans wouldn’t be united against a McCain “comprehensive” bill. Unlike Clinton and Obama, McCain doesn’t have ambitious New Dealish health legislation that would compete for his and Congress’ time and energy.

True, it would still be difficult to pass a McCainish immigration plan–you can imagine the Democrats splitting just like Republicans when faced with something that might actually become law. McCain would have campaigned on his pledge to secure the borders–his current plan for a quickie assurance by “border state” governors might be too transparent a ploy (especially if the press was reporting a continuing flow of illegals). Nevertheless,,McCain seems clearly the worst of the three possibilities, from an anti-comprehensivist perspective.

I’m not saying voters should be single-issue voters. I’m not saying I’m going to vote for Hillary. I’m just saying …

P.S.: OK,, I’m not just just saying. If I thought either Clinton or Obama would do a much better job on health care, that would be one thing. But both seem well-positioned to actually pass some big, broad health plan. An immigration plan, on the other hand, seems much iffier. It could pass or fail depending on who’s president. And, unlike a health care plan, an immigration legalization bill is likely to have large, irreversible consequences. Misconceived health plans can be altered or repealed (remember “catastrophic insurance”?). But if a misconceived immigration amnesty attracts millions of new illegal entrants who then have to be given citizenship–on top of the new citizens created by the amnesty itself–it won’t just lower unskilled wages etc. It will profoundly alter the very electorate that will have to consider any future change of course.

In this context, single-issue voting could be a highly responsible course.

Vote Hillary. She won’t get it done!

Just Another Racist Hate Group

Commentary: Why doesn’t this surprise us. The most amazing thing in this story is how these La Raza racist goons insist that Hispanics are victims of a system that is rigged against them. HA! That’s outrageous! The American system and especially the Arizona system bend over backwards to cater to and accommodate Hispanics. Equal Opportunity Programs are needed for caucasian Americans these days.

If a racist organization like La Raza is not only allowed but encouraged to promote it’s twisted Hispanic Nationalist agenda and funded to the tune of 10 million dollars a year by the United States government. (Soon to be 20 million dollars a year FOREVER if HR-1999 a.k.a. The Hope Fund Act of 2007 becomes law.) If the U.S. Government is funding a racist Hispanic Nationalist group like La Raza, why not a Black Nationalist group like The New Black Panthers or a White Nationalist group like the KKK? We have our own suspicions as to why. We wrote about it here back in September.

Whatever the reasoning may be and how it might be justified doesn’t change the fact that Arizona taxpayers are paying for the indoctrination of the future subversives that will do all they can to destroy what’s pitifully left of America.

Secretive raza studies in Tucson district need close look

Jan. 20, 2008 12:00 AM

They don’t teach much about history these days in public schools. But in some school districts, like the Tucson Unified School District, they do emphasize a certain sort of history.

It’s a history program that its critics, some of whom with firsthand knowledge of how it is taught, contend often dwells on bitterness and exclusion. On oppression and unfairness. And on a sort of tribalism that often teaches that the American system is rigged against Hispanics and, likely, other minorities.

And one other thing. It’s a history program whose zealous advocates object to “outsiders” knowing much about it. You get your knuckles rapped hard in Tucson just for asking questions about what this program is all about.

In November, state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne asked officials at TUSD for information about its ethnic-studies program, an elective curriculum that, according to its director, serves about 1,700 students daily in TUSD high schools and middle schools.

Horne is no fan of minority-studies programs. As a school-board member in Paradise Valley some years ago, he helped block a women’s-studies program there. Of ethnic-studies programs specifically, Horne said they “promote ethnic chauvinism.”

“They’re against all that America stands for,” he told me.

So, is that clear enough? Horne dislikes public-school programs that promote grievance and separation.

But when Horne asked the Tucson district in November for information about the program, he wasn’t looking to shut it down. He wanted to know about it. He wanted to have a look at the prescribed reading materials, the teacher manuals and the course syllabi. He wanted to know what the program, also known as raza studies, was all about. And he asked the district to forward the information to him.

Now, whatever one thinks of Tom Horne – and, heaven knows, he has his critics – he is the elected superintendent of public education in Arizona. In the hierarchy of pubic education, that may not mean he can dictate to school districts what their various elective programs can or cannot include. Those decisions usually are left to school districts. Like TUSD.

But is it unreasonable that the state superintendent of public instruction know about those programs? It strikes me that a lot of people would think Horne remiss if he didn’t know what public schools are teaching their students.

But in Tucson, Horne was told, quite explicitly, to “butt out.” He was told it was none of his business what raza-studies teachers were imparting to 1,700 public-school students every school day.

About a week after Horne made his request – and well before the district complied with it – the super’s Freedom of Information Act request became a Tucson news story.

The local newspapers loosed a full-throated declaration that Horne has no business knowing anything about the Mexican-American/Raza Studies Department, the program’s official title.

Said one Tucson newspaper in an editorial published Nov. 26: “Memo to Tom Horne: Butt out.”

Said another local paper, also in an editorial: “Horne has overstepped by asking for information about the (TUSD’s) ethnic-studies programs.”

Overstepped by . . . asking for information?

Now, I’ve known a lot of political buttinskies in my time. Such people, generally, are busybodies who have no particular mandate regarding the subject that obsesses them. Nor any special insight into it. How the state superintendent of public instruction qualifies as a buttinsky regarding the curricula of an Arizona public school district mystifies me.

The district and its media allies are confusing, perhaps intentionally, knowledge with control. They point out, correctly, that the district is governed by its own elected board and that Horne has no authority to dictate what elective programs it offers. What Horne does have is a bully pulpit. And it is that pulpit which so terrifies the ethnic-studies advocates.

One of the editorials noted that the raza-studies program is “clearly what TUSD’s kids, parents and educators want.” Is it? How can anything about the program be “clear” if the district is so secretive about the content and delivery of its program that it resents the state superintendent knowing about it?

Since Horne’s request made Tucson headlines, a number of people with firsthand knowledge of the district’s program have stepped forward.

In an op-ed published in the Arizona Daily Star on Dec. 5, Horne noted one of them, an English teacher at Tucson’s Cholla High School, who, according to Horne, was denigrated as “the White man’s agent” when he dared to criticize elements of the raza studies. Very academic and supportive program, this one.

There are others who have stepped forward to say the things that TUSD and its allies would rather not be said. I’ll write about them soon.
