Re: Mexico's Invasion: Two Hearings Tuesday Morning

The story is the story, rather than the source.
I want people focused on the outrageous conduct, rather than web-surfing.
But I will make an effort to plug your site in the future.  I likewise want to plug Kevin's podcasts, for people who can't tune in at night.
This really was a great catch.  You done good.

Walter -

Why didn't you mention that it was Mayor Sam that broke the story on the Mexican Book Fair?

You emailed me and told me you wouldn't have known about it if I hadn't found it.

I'm just curious.

Mexico's Invasion: Two Hearings Tuesday Morning

Let's start with the good news:

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors is holding a hearing Tuesday, August 12, 2008 at 11:00, at which Sheriff Baca will make a presentation on his efforts to identify illegal aliens in jail and hand them over to ICE rather than releasing them back into our community to commit more crimes. The Shaw Family will attend, and would like you to join them if you can. (The address is: Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, 500 West Temple Street, Room 381B, L.A., CA 90012.) Ideally, every single prisoner would be screened to ensure we deport every criminal we can, rather than playing "Russian roulette" with the public's safety.

Now the bad news:

The Los Angeles City Council has on its agenda Item No. 36, a motion to obtain a $1.6 million grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The money, however, would not be spent in our city, our even our county, or even our nation.

Instead, our City's Department of Cultural Affairs -- funded with your tax dollars -- wants to spend $300,000 to build a "showcase pavillion" in Mexico for the Guadalajara International Book Fair. The remaining $1.3 million would go into a dedicated trust fund, to be used only for the "Guadalajara Book Fair."

The City Council -- the same group that is too busy to vote on Jamiel's Law -- will take up this issue as part of its 10:00 a.m. calendar, in Room 340 at City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, L.A., CA 90012.

I know this makes you mad. It should make you mad. But "mad" isn't good enough.

If you want to end the infuriating, obscene excuse for "government" we have in the City of L.A., you must take action. That means contribute as much as you can, as fast as you can, to my campaign. If you don't contribute, I can't buy the ads I need to reach new people. That's just the way it is.

You can also help spread the word by putting one of my bumper stickers on your cars, getting your friends to sign up for my newsletter, signing up for a yard sign, printing out flyers from my website and taking them to the next meeting of your civic club, and anything else you can think of. But you have to do something or the bad guys win. Click here to take action.

And to those of you who have already contributed, gotten the bumper sticker, signed up for the yard sign, handed out flyers, etc., thank you. I truly appreciate your taking action. It is because of you that new people join our ranks every day.
