Al Sharpton: We’re Ready to Commit Civil Disobedience Over Arizona Immigration Bill

Sheriff Joe’s letter to Al Sharpton - April 2009

Al Sharpton: We’re Ready to Commit Civil Disobedience Over Arizona Immigration Bill

New York Post

70% of Arizona voters agree with new immigration legislation signed into law on Friday.
But, not Al Sharpton or Barack Obama.

The Rev. Al Sharpton says he will challenge Arizona’s new immigration bill in court and on the streets.

Sharpton is joining Lillian Rodriguez Lopez from the Hispanic Federation to announce a legal challenge to the bill. They say activists are also prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the Arizona immigration bill.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill Friday. It requires police to question people about their immigration status — including asking for identification — if they suspect someone is in the country illegally.

The law will take effect in late July or early August.


Wild Thing's comment........

From Sheriff Joe Arpaio !!! "“I will be squaring off with Reverend Al Sharpton tomorrow on MSNBC @ 11:15 EST about new AZ immigration law”:" I don't do tweeter but this was on Sheriff Joe's tweeter that was shared at Facebook.

That should look really great, the DNC goes out in force to support people breaking the laws.

The commie ‘RATS like Al and obama-islam are really concerned right now about ‘RAT voters. Has obama-islam sent him to do his dirty work??

Has Al Sharpton by any chance said anything about that dead rancher? If not, he needs to shut up.

The Rev. Al Sharpton says he will challenge Arizona's new immigration bill in court and on the streets.

Let him live in a trailer on the border...see how long he lasts!

This should make it much easier to find some illegals to get rid of in AZ. Just wait for a bunch to gather around Rev. Al and then pick them all up and do an immigration check on the whole crowd. Send the illegals off and wait for Al to draw some more “protesters” around him. heh heh

Does he mean the same "civil disobedience" that he orchestrated during the Crown Heights Pogrom?

I see one thing wrong with the Sheriff's letter in that he called Sharpton a reverend who preaches from a churches pulpit. I don't know of any church pulpit he preaches from except when it's convenient for him.

Sharpton was ordained when he was "9" years old...what a joke. He because a Baptist minister in 1994 but never pastored a church or congregation. He only uses the title "reverend" to further his agenda. To equate him with a Christian minister who has studied and overseen a church is a farce.

Sharpton is a liar who never has his facts straight, as pointed out the the Sheriff. On The O'Reilly Factor, he stated he saw the video of Tea Party members using racial slurs and spitting on Black members of congress. When pressed on the issue further by O'Rielly, he admitted he never saw the video as none existed. The man is a bold face liar.

Ole Joe will have to get a whole new supply of 'pink' underwear ready for his future out of town guests. Put that in your pipe and smoke it...Al.

I love Sheriff Joe and I wish there were more like him. And I sense the possibility of a lot of wood shampoo being handed out.

Al has been out of the public eye since obama's campaign. That is a long time for Al not to get his fix of tv time. Now he has found a cause to help him fill his egotistical needs. Wouldn't it be funny if the hispanics told Al to bugger off.

I don't know about you folks, but I'd like to see Sharpton share the same gallows with Obama when he's convicted of treason against America.

And the 30% that do not approve are illegal's, anchor babies, or have family that are illegal...Funny how that works huh?

Sheriff Joe for Prez!

Sharpton is on Hannity right now talking out his ass. If people would only listen to the words he says, they will see he continually contradicts himself and doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.

I fully applaud the stance Arizona is taking toward illegal immigration! I can only hope that TPTB in Texas are paying attention!

Unless Sharpton is a resident of Arizona, I don't believe he has standing to challenge the new law. Same goes for Lillian Rodriguez Lopez.

JohnE., good point!!!

BobF., I agree, I don't ever remember hearing or seeing anything about Sharpton actually preaching.

Mark, LOL good one.

Mr.Happy, haha they are going to wish they never saw this side of the border that's for sure.

Tom, oh wow that would be great. haha

Eddie, for all the things that Sharpton has been a part of and headed up that have done damage to others I agree.

Robert, that is so true, those are the ones that complain the loudest.

BobF., thank you so much for the infor. about Sharpton on Hannity. I always wonder why Sean gives Sharpton soooo much air time.

Melissa, I do too, I am so glad they did this in Arizona.
