We support the boycott of Murrieta, California, in light of their Mayor and Councilmen who are participating in terrorizing small refugee children. We have Sought Outside Investigation From DOJ Regarding Murrieta Protestors Regarding Conspiracy To Commit Obstruction of Federal Officers And To Violate Civil Rights.
From ABC 10:
Migrant children describe fear of facing protesters
Murrieta, California has reared its racist head, so lets give them what they want and segregate them. Boycott all business in Murrieta, California!!
The mayor and the people of Murrieta, California decided that it was appropriate to make a political statement by harassing and traumatizing children. We are calling for a complete and total boycott of Murrieta, California. Their behavior is an insult to what America stands for. Avoid all business within the city limits of Murrieta, no gas, no food, no grocery shopping, no jack in the box. Nothing. Isolate Murrieta, California exactly as they want to be.
1. Encourage a boycott of all business in Murrieta.
2. Mayor Alan Long is held responsible for his encouragement and support of the racist protests.
3. The buses of refugee children are not harassed in any way.

Mexican-American / Latino Voters are giving Idaho Republican Representative a ‘thumbs down’ for his obstructionism. American voters are tired of grid lock in Congress. Somos Independents voter group is keenly aware of how many millions of dollars Republicans and Democrats spend to reach out to our voter block group. But, Independent voters are ready to DUMP THE TEA and extremism.
According to the Gallup
, “Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years but down from 36% in 2008.”
According to the Independent Voter Network (IVN
“The current Congress has an average 9.2 percent approval rating and 84.2 percent disapproval rating. … These numbers point to a grave problem: the House of Representatives is utterly unrepresentative.”
Independent Mexican-American voter via Carlos Galindo wrote:
For those not aware of this. We pointed it out Labrador is an Immigration Attorney by profession. Tell me he never asked for a pardon for a client that he represented. What that means is that he solicited amnesty.
Richard Hornos of TNTweeters not only noticed Labrador’s obstructionism, but also his flip flop approach where he tells the Latino audience one thing on Al Punto, but will vote contrary to what he tells Spanish speaking persons:
On 2/19/2013 said this on What’s his position TODAY as candidate?
If the GOP decides on supporting Rep. Labrador’s obstructionist approach to fill Rep. Eric Cantor’s shoes, they will have to do so at the risk of these competitive districts.
Now let’s turn to the Republicans:
Our women-led and key swing Independent registered voter group gives Labrador a THUMBS DOWN, we are tired of men at the Capitol who allow their egos to get the better of them i.e., government shutdown at the expense of the American people and our children.

“Senate Republicans Block DREAM Act for Illegal Immigrants”
by Devin Dwyer and Matthew Jaffe
“Senate Republicans today blocked a controversial immigration measure that would have provided a conditional path to legal residency for hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants first brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents.
By a vote of 55 to 41, the bill — the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, or DREAM Act — failed to win the 60 votes needed to break a GOP filibuster, even though the measure passed the House last week.”

We are two first-generation Latinas attending the University of California Berkeley, majoring in History of Latin America with a concentration on Public Health [Vanessa], and Anthropology with a Minor in Disability Studies [Melanie]. As seniors we did not want to leave without studying abroad. We were fortunate enough to be accepted into the Dominican Republic Public Health Summer 2014 Program. Throughout our years in college we developed a common passion for public health. This program will allow us to gain a better understanding of health issues affecting the community in Santiago, Dominican Republic and to what extent they are being addressed at both a domestic and political level.
