The rhetoric and rancor over Arizonas tough immigration law was ratcheted up a bit this week when Rep. Linda Sanchez told a Whittier Democratic group that the measure was orchestrated by front organizations for white supremacist groups. As reported by the Whittier Daily News, Sanchez, D-Lakewood, said this law is not accidental or one persons crazy idea. Theres a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups. The News reported that at a dinner meeting of Whittiers Mark Twain Democratic Club, Linda Sanchez said the Arizona law is designed to create a system where minorities can legally be discriminated against. Theyve also posted audio of the event. Sanchezs statement went viral and she issued a clarifying statement late Thursday saying she didnt mean to imply that everyone who supports the Arizona law is a racist or white supremacist. Sanchezs sister congresswoman Rep. Loretta Sanchez isnt getting into this one. Her office said theyre going to decline to comment on Linda Sanchezs statement. Loretta Sanchez has spoken out against the Arizona law but has chosen to use a bit less inflammatory language. Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, has said she was worried that she might be a deportation target given her heritage and opposes the law because it could lead to racial profiling and doesnt get at the root issue the need for comprehensive immigration reform. Arizonas immigration law may be smart politics, it isnt smart policy, Loretta Sanchez said in a statement after Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer met this week with President Barack Obama to talk about his plan to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. If we really want to secure our border with Mexico, Congress needs to assert its jurisdiction on border security issues and, more importantly, tackle comprehensive immigration reform once and for all.
