Calif.'s Lesson: Some will Stop At Nothing
to Kill Immigration Reform
Arizona Republic distorts the truth about California's Proposition 187

"I have confidence in the governor that he will do whatever he can so that these catastrophic effects that were foreseen for Proposition 187 several years ago will not come to pass." - Mexican President Zedillo -- KTLA TV, Channel 5, Los Angeles -- News Report, May 19, 1999.
Excerpts from Spencer's Letter to the Arizona Republic
    Major elements of Proposition 187 were found unconstitutional by     one federal judge.
The "court settlement" to which you refer was a sham mediation that included only opponents of the measure. Instead of allowing the will of the people to be tested by the U.S. Supreme Court, the President of Mexico, Ernesto Zedillo, and the Governor of California, Gray Davis, used this mediation to terminate the appeals process. Records show they killed Proposition 187 because they feared it would be found constitutional.
    ...Those, including the Arizona Republic, who distort the history of Proposition 187 do a disservice to the democratic process. Those who continue to thwart the will of the people when their nation, their culture and their standard of living are being attacked, are skating on very thin ice. [Send a letter to the editor]
