Broken Promises, Promise Arizona and Immigration Reform


There is an exciting opportunity for young people, and those who are young at heart, who want to make a difference.  Promise Arizona is offering a fellowship program in Arizona to fight unjust laws and elect pro-immigration candidates.


After promising to support immigration reform Senator John McCain broke his promise.  He announced he supports the most vicious legislation in modern times.  The law, called SB 1070, was passed by Republican governor Jan Brewer and her cronies in the Senate.  The law requires detention by law enforcement of all people who they suspect of being undocumented, including US citizens and lawful permanent residents. 


If you have the “undocumented look” you are likely to get stopped, or profiled!  We are still trying to figure out what the “undocumented look” is.  Suffice it to say, if you are Hispanic and in Arizona you should carry your passport and present it when an officer of the law says, “Papers Please”.


From broken promises by McCain, Brewer and their anti-immigration forces comes the birth of Promise Arizona with their fellowship called Paz.  A Paz fellow must:


  • Be 18 years old
  • Commit to working 30 hours a week
  • Commit to at least three weeks
  • Have their own transportation


Promise Arizona will train you for community organizing and election efforts.  In exchange for what may be a life changing experience, Promise Arizona will set you up with a host family and pay you $100 bucks a week!  O.K. so you are not going to retire on it, you could not buy the life experiences you will get for a million bucks!


  You can apply for the program online


I do not represent Promise Arizona but I do support them with all of my heart!  I don’t know what they have in store for you and how they will go about attacking unfair laws but at the end of the day you will find a rainbow in your heart!
