Remember the Arizona State lawmaker Kyrsten Sinema who was tough on immigration during a time Latinos were being kicked down? Well guess what? She is running for Congress and the National Tequila Party Movement — a female led political movement will never support her and let her forget what she did when she decided to get “tough on immigration.”
I suspect she wanted her tough on immigration bill implemented because she knew darn well she was going to run for Congress and she wanted “in” on demonizing the immigrants.
Don’t believe me? Read this story below:
Latino Democrat Steve Gallardo stands up against Kyrsten Sinema’s SB1225, her get “tough on immigration” bill
Stephen Lemons of the Phoenix New Times picks up the SB1225 saga and includes some more insight into growing Latino opposition to it.
Steve Gallardo stands up against Kyrsten Sinema’s ‘tough on immigration’ SB1225.
The right-wing loves Kyrsten Sinema’s “tough on immigration” bill SB1225, and indeed she has 10 Republican co-sponsors, but Democrats are not on board yet, and especially not the Latino Democrats such as Steve Gallardo.
Below is an excerpt from The Bird’s article that shows this cultural conflict, and it will only escalate in my opinion.
“I and many other members at the legislature have taken the stance that immigration bills really need to be put on hold for now,” Gallardo said. “Our focus should be the budget. Let’s focus on the economy, let’s focus on jobs, let’s focus on the deficit. That should be our focus.”
I have to interject and add that I strongly agree with Gallardo. We do not need any more immigration bills, and we don’t need to give Sheriff Arpaio more power to get “tough on immigration.” Focus on the economy!
Kyrsten Sinema not only managed to piss off the Democrats, she has angered feminists, the gay community, Libertarians and Republicans, too, and they are coming at her with a vengeance.
This image below is going viral on social networks and facebook. In case Sinema decides to deny this or spin her way out of it, you can read it in the Tribune for yourselves here.
Read reaction from Arizona females with regard to the push back Sinema will be receiving during 2012.
Trisha Wright reminds us what Sinema said in 2006: “I’m worried that we’re (women) regressing. For instance, this supposed New Feminism. these women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing their checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life.

Andrea Glasscock Garcia writes: “She’s a total hypocrite even among Democrats. She claims support of the GLBT community yet destroyed Steve Mays for being gay. I guess being a Republican was just that evil.”
