Tucson Residents Vote Down Ballot Measure To Become Sanctuary City

Published

on

Voters in Tucson, Arizona rejected a plan for the Arizona city to become a sanctuary city last week.

After Arizona passed a law that made local police check the immigration status of individuals suspected to be illegal aliens, Democrats in charge of Tucson established their city as an “immigrant welcoming city.” The Tucson police department enacted new rules which limited when police officers can ask about people’s immigration status during routine stops.

However, on Tuesday the Democratic-controlled city voted resoundingly to not become a sanctuary city.

This result came about after a heated disagreement that split leftists who were giddy about standing up for immigrants and against President Donald Trump, and those who believed that the voter initiative would bring retaliation from the Arizona state legislature and the Trump administration.

“The city of Tucson, in all respects except being labeled as such, operates as a sanctuary city,” Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said during an interview prior to the vote.

This voter initiative aimed to gut a 2010 Arizona immigration law known as SB1070, which catalyzed a series of mass protests and a boycott of the state. Courts struck down much of the law but kept the requirement for law enforcement to check immigration documents when they believe someone is in the country illegally.

Arizona is one of the states that’s witnessing demographic shift, and as a result, has become a purple state. The election of Kyrsten Sinema, the first class 1 Democrat elected to the Senate from Arizona since 1976 when Dennis DeConcini was elected, further illustrates this.

On top of Democratic political domination, mass migration brings public safety problems and economic upheaval with it.

For once, voters came to their senses and rejected a sanctuary city proposal.

However, the Arizona Republican Party’s relevance will ultimately depend on a federal government that is willing tackle illegal immigration and radically overhaul the migration system in a way that no longer attracts massive waves of migrants.

Black Rifle Coffee Does Not Support Second Amendment Hero Kyle Rittenhouse

At this Time, Cons

Published

on

Black Rifle Coffee, a coffee company based in Salt Lake City, is not defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse.

The company said that it was against a tweet that Blaze Media reporter, Elijah Schaeffer,  posted that featured Rittenhouse wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt captioned “Kyle Rittenhouse drinks the best coffee in America.” Rittenhouse was released on November 20, 2020 after supporters were able to raise $2 million for his bail. 

In the tweet, Schaeffer posted a discount code for the coffee. Sara Tabin of The Salt Lake Tribune noted that online Twitter users “questioned whether the coffee company had a sponsorship deal with Rittenhouse and accused it of supporting murder and hate.”

This prompted Black Rifle Coffee, the sponsor of the Slightly Offens*ve podcast, to release a statement on November 21 declaring that it is not sponsoring or supporting Rittenhouse.

Initially, there was a misunderstanding about the company withdrawing its sponsorship of Slightly Offens*ve. However, a spokesperson for the company told the Salt Lake Tribune on November 21 that “We are not fluctuating our ad spend.” The coffee spokesperson added “We did have a conversation with Schaffer, and he understands that the post was a mistake.”

She stressed, “We don’t traffic in national tragedy and to us, that’s what this is. We are not legal experts or members of law enforcement. We fully support all law enforcement officials and believe in the integrity of the legal system.”

The spokesperson reiterated that the company will maintain its sponsorship of Blaze Media. She explained: “Our concern is that use of the discount code in the post did not reflect our values. That’s a concern we’ve addressed with the journalist and that he understands.”

Blaze employees “make decisions about how to allocate ad dollars within the Blaze,” she remarked. Although the spokesperson did not go into further detail about the company’s status as a podcast sponsor, it noted that the coffee company and the Blaze are in talks about “how to move forward with the allocation of ad dollars.”

Black Rifle Coffee positions itself as a pro-Second Amendment, conservative company that was founded by veterans. Black Rifle Coffee co-founder Evan Hafer released a statement on November 21 declaring that “We do not support legal advocacy efforts. We do not sponsor nor do we have a relationship with the 17-year-old facing charges in Kenosha, WI.”

At the moment, Rittenhouse is facing two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot back in August. In addition, he’s being charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm. During the riots, Rittenhouse was attacked by Rosenbaum. Rittenhouse was carrying an AR-style rifle as he was walking down the street to protect private property from looters.

It is disappointing to see supposedly pro-Second Amendment businesses fold to the mob. Although the Left is very effective at mass politics and causing certain businesses to get cancelled, some businesses will have to take a stand. Submission to these radicals only encourages them to become bolder in their attacks.
