Civil Rights and Immigration Lawyer, Shirl Mora James,  is the President of SOMOS INDEPENDENTS formerly known as the National Tequila Party Movement reacts to House Speaker John Boehner and the House GOP with regard to their joint statement on immigration:

She writes:

    The House Republicans affirmed today that they do not believe in democracy. Instead, they acted like unpatriotic fascist nationals by failing to bring CIR to a vote. The American people want Comprehensive Immigration Reform and the House GOP is ignoring public consensus but they will pay in 2014 and 2016 for their decision today to keep people in the shadows. The House GOP needs to remember that unless they are Native Americans, they too are descendants of immigrants! To the dishonorable GOP Representatives who came out today against CIR, which Native American Tribe issued green cards to your immigrant descendants?

Somos Independents is a woman-led political movement.  More females vote in Presidential elections than men and the strong Mexican-American / Latina matriarch is emerging and we want to communicate to those matriarchs across the nation with regard to our message of compassion towards immigrants and legal immigration reform.

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.
