The last time I drove through Arizona I saw Mexicanos hammering together the studs of new buildings, houses and condos—they were roofing all the brand new structures in the new parts of town; I saw them watering the golf courses and doing the groundskeeping keeping everything green for white golfers; I saw them running convenience stores, and corner stores in the little dried out crossroad towns; I saw Latinos working minimum wage jobs in the gas stations, mini-marts, busing the tables and working back in the kitchens in all the little restaurants; I saw it was their labor and lifeblood making the economy of AZ move; it was them in the fields across AZ wherever there was irrigation and rows of crops; they were the ones devoting their lives to the livelihood of tending the whole economy of the state, in the bottom corners, in the far-out places and dirty streets, in the cool or corny bars, restaurants and fast food joints. And for this they deserve to be attacked by every cop in the state? The governor and the racists that she supports need to answer for this.
