The FREEDOM RIDERS FOR IMMIGRANTS is dedicated to Joaquin Luna — a DREAMer who committed suicide because he felt he had no hope.

Latina-led Freedom Riders to Protest Sheriff Arpaio in Florida and the GOP Convention Via Freedom Ride Bus for Immigrants

The National Tequila Party Movement is set to leave Phoenix, Arizona, this Sunday, August 26, 2012, via our Freedom Riders for Immigrants.  According to KTAR, Arpaio is to speak at the Republican National Convention, and we will be protesting the corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Republican National Convention.  The GOP has become the face of Pete Wilson, ousted Senator Russell Pearce (who welcomed Operation Wetback), Arpaio and Kris Kobach who has advised candidate Mitt Romney — all who have become stars of the anti-immigrant movement.  

Everyone on our bus will be eligible voters and American-born citizens of our Nation.  Lead co-President and Civil Rights lawyer, Shirl Mora James, will be be joining us in the Heartland to finish our bus tour when we visit Tampa, Florida.   Too often we are told that undocumented immigrants are ignored because they cannot vote, therefore,  those of us who were born in our Country and have fought for this Nation honorably will be the voice via our vote for the voiceless immigrants and DREAM Act youth.  Indeed we do support a human immigration legal plan, and we look forward to accepting Florida Senator Bill Nelson’s invitation to meet with him since he is running against an anti-immigrant Tea Party politician.

Our Latina Freedom Rider bus leaves for Tampa this Sunday from Phoenix, Arizona.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
