Fabian Nunez, California assemblyman, at the Latino Summit Response to Prop 187 at U.C. Riverside (Jan. 14, 1995): "Each of you, get ten people to go with us on that march in Washington, D.C., and I guarantee you just as we mobilized 150,000 to the streets of Los Angeles on October 16, we will mobilize 1 million people and bring Washington to a standstill, and those rednecks that are out there making decisions for the betterment of their communities will think twice before they push forward anti- immigrant legislation against our community."
Then Assembly Speaker (California State Legislature) Antonio Villaraigosa, now Mayor of LA: "It's not enough to elect Latino leadership. If they're supporting legislation that denies the undocumented driver's license, they don't belong in office, friends."
We had better pay more attention to what these folks say when they are speaking Spanish.
