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:
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.
