The state will launch a tax amnesty program that will run from May 1 to June 1.
If your are wondering why all of a sudden these Central American children are coming to the USA, the media will tell you that they are escaping the dangerous drug cartel. “All of a sudden”? I don’t think so and here’s why. One radio source talked about the current administration being behind all this. The reason - to stir up the American people and provide further impetus for the immediate need to pass the Immigration Reform Legislature (i.e. Amnesty) in Congress.
PHOENIX – Governor Jan Brewer has authorized the state of Arizona to sign onto a multistate lawsuit seeking to overturn President Obama’s recent immigration executive action – a unilateral decision by the President to ignore existing federal immigration law and effectively grant amnesty to nearly five million illegal aliens.
(NAPSI)—As schools increasingly turn to the Internet and new technologies, more and more, students are asked to perform online research, grades and assignments are posted on websites, and communication between teachers and parents and students is done through e-mail. Because of this, it’s increasingly important for families to have access to the Internet at home.
Like most campaign cycles, this one has produced its share of disinformation, much of it sincere, which makes it worse. Here's some examples from both left and right.
January 18, 2006 - Catalina Foothills High School students are writing letters to Congress about what they say is a social and humanitarian injustice happening thousands of miles away.
(NAPSI)—There’s good news for parents looking for a positive way to keep their kids entertained when there is no school. There is an affordable way to keep kids connected to the Internet.
Early Monday morning, I was surprised to hear Arizona’s own Sen. John McCain talking about bipartisan legislation that would be brought before the Senate and the House to address the longstanding issue of illegal immigration in America.
President Barack Obama announced today that the U.S. Department of Justice would not seek to deport young undocumented immigrants with clean criminal records.
Pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine on Monday ignored an ultimatum from the Kiev government to leave government buildings as another police headquarters in the region fell to separatists.
Your editorial “What’s in a name?” in last week’s Explorer is of no interest and has no relevance to folks in Oro Valley. What prompted you to rip into a liberal judge’s decision ordering parents in Tennessee to change their son’s first name? Who cares? Is Oro Valley devoid of news? Why not write about President Obama’s failure to act after threatening Syria’s President Assad not to cross a “Red Line” and use chemical weapons to kill his own people? Also, you could have done a piece on the brutal beating death of an 88-year-old WWII veteran in Seattle, or the senseless murder of a lad from Australia shot in the back by three bored thugs in Oklahoma?
When did it become acceptable for government at any level to harass, intimidate and malign law abiding citizens; to demand to know what they pray about and who they worship with? When an agency of government abuses its authority we the people, in order to form a more perfect union, can eliminate it.

The Town of Oracle was in a stark divide today over the arrival of a busload of children from Central America – about 40-60 in number – who are to be housed at the town’s Sycamore Canyon Academy, which currently serves the area’s troubled youth.
An executive order from Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer might prevent young illegal immigrants from taking advantage of President Barack Obama’s orders to be more lenient.
Legal experts dismissed as groundless a lawsuit that 18 states, including Arizona, brought last week against President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
The controversy surrounding where to place tens of thousands of children crossing the U.S. border, mostly in Texas, continued in Oracle last week as organized protests were held to protest and support up to 50 children being placed at a boys’ school.

The comprehensive immigration reform bill has received the “broadest coalition of support” U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. has seen in his many years of legislation.

R.I.N.O. - Republican In Name Only. Flaky on the issues. More relevant, flaky on the obligation to support other members of the coalition they have chosen, particularly when holding partisan or party office. There may be examples elsewhere called DINOS.
In the June 9 edition of The Explorer, District 26 Rep. Vic Williams was headlined "Most people support SB 1070." The statement is partially correct. All Arizonans do want a secure border, but a large number of them think SR 1070 has something to do with border security. It doesn't.
While waiting for Tuesday's election results here and elsewhere that will add more tea leaves for this November, there are some things that became much clearer during the process. Outcomes in Arizona, Kentucky and Pennsylvania will leave large clues.
