Arizona-Based Hispanic GOP Group Demands Rep. Todd Apology for Use of Term ‘Anchor Baby’

Press Release from SOMOS Republicans, Nov. 16, 2010:

“Anchor Baby” is Derogatory, Too, Rep. Curry Todd and We Demand an Apology

Phoenix, AZ — On November 12, 2010, SOMOS REPUBLICANS demanded an apology from State Representative, Curry Todd, for his derogatory remarks that liken “illegal immigrants to rats”. We did not receive a contrite apology from him and instead we received more atrocious language when Todd told the Associated Press that he meant to say “anchor babies”.

Since when do Republican officials who claim to be pro life use such defamatory language attached to babies? We believe officials like Curry Todd are hypocrites. This sort of defamation appears to be rising in the form of men attacking precious American-born children and their mothers. This rhetoric is not new as we have seen this inappriopriate behavior from State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, Congressman Steve King, former Congressman Tom Tancredo, Senator Jim Inhoffe, Congressman Jack Kingston and so forth.

SOMOS REPUBLICANS are working very hard to restore the soul of our Party, and it is these types of views that make it hard for us to grow our tent. For the second time, we are demanding that Curry Todd give a contrite apology to the Hispanic community, or resign and leave the GOP.

The Republicans are so funny, when the economy is good you say let’s all celebrate “Cinco de Mayo, my brothers” but when the economy is down “it’s all your fault, you damn immigrant”.

The GOP has went on a nationwide rant in proposing and passing several anti-immigration legislation (that our US Courts continue to strike down) and have continue to blame the immigrant for the flat economy or worse.

Plus the more radical of the GOP are now attacking our Constitution (with all Amendments), and the Declaration of Independence, in their crazy notion of wanting to take away rights that all of us take for granted in their misguided attempt to garner some much needed votes (how is that working, of course I mean the Senate), they really are fools, and leading the GOP towards obscurity because they are no longer a party of ideas, just of empty suits.

When most Americans (of Latin America roots) went to the polls this November we all remembered who stood with us, our children, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, our parents and grandparents, in one word our families and who stood against us, so trying to make amends now is somewhat funny, but go ahead, you did not change our minds. Your hate made you do it, and you found out that you reap what you have sown. I wonder what Abraham Lincoln would say about todays GOP, he unlike the current GOP was a man of ideas.
