The 'Friends of Marcia Powell' are autonomous groups and individuals engaging in prisoner outreach, informal advocacy, and organized protest and direct actions in a sustained campaign to: promote prisoner rights and welfare in America; engage the Arizona public in a creative and thoughtful critique of our system of "justice;” deconstruct the prison industrial complex; and dismantle this racist, classist patriarchy...

Retiring "Free Marcia Powell"

As of December 2, 2010 (with occasional exceptions) I'm retiring this blog to direct more of my time and energy into prisoner rights and my other blogs; I just can't do anyone justice when spread so thin. I'll keep the site open so folks can search the archives and use the links, but won't be updating it with new posts. If you're looking for the latest, try Arizona Prison Watch. Most of the pieces posted here were cross-posted to one or both of those sites already.

Thanks for visiting. Peace out - Peg.

Your Voice for Families, Freedom...Fascism.

PearceAlert (From Senator Russell Pearce, to his faithful followers) from in re: SB 1070 hearings yesterday. I don't understand the closing lines...I think he's unraveling.



Thank you for your support yesterday.  Don't be fooled by the miss information given yesterday in committee by those who oppose any and all enforcement.  I will not attend another funeral without having done all I can to enforce our laws.  We must enforce our laws with compassion, but without apology. 

I have been to court (federal court) 7 times on Prop. 200 and 5 times on Employer Sanctions and we have won all 12 times.  The language will survive the challenges by the open border/ACLU/MALDEF/AND OTHERS, as the left and cheap labor crowd continue to tell it has drafting errors.  Not true.  The old attorney trick.   I refuse to attend another funeral of a Police Officer or of a Citizen without doing everything I can do to enforce our laws.  Government is complicit in the deaths, maiming and cost to our citizens.  

Remember the Police Chiefs had a Press Conference several months ago right after Officer Erfle was murdered by an illegal alien and stated they refused to enforce our immigration laws.  No surprise they have concerns (invented to protect the status quo).  They do not want to enforce the laws and have stated, that is why they have so many roadblocks in place and as testified to investigations on officers who called ICE.  In fact they are investigating one commander for arresting homicide suspects that were illegal aliens, because he did not get permission from higher command officers.  Look at the endorsements, Sheriffs, Police Officers, many, many others and just Saturday by a unanimous vote of over 1400 Maricopa County PC's endorsed this effort.  80% of the public support this effort.  

I just had a meeting with law enforcement yesterday afternoon and they were extremely upset that there were concerns about their ability to "know" when and when not to arrest with the silly arguments or concerns presented by some.  That is what they do for a living.  They don't go around arresting people based on appearance!!!!!  They have been restrained from doing the very job they took an Oath to do.  Protect and to Serve.   Enforce all laws.  They have been too many funerals, many which could have been prevented. 

Again, thank you for your support yesterday.

Your Voice for Families, Freedom, Constitutional and Limited Government and a Consistent Conservative Voice:  God... Family ... Country
