After tense day, Anaheim shelves anti-Donald Trump resolution; five hit in pepper spray clash


ANAHEIM – Anger filled the air in and outside Anaheim City Hall on Tuesday night as the council considered, but took no action, on a resolution denouncing “divisive rhetoric” by Donald Trump.

Supporters and opponents of Trump rallied outside, where there was a pepper-spray altercation, and later filled the City Council chamber to speak about the Republican presidential candidate.

After more than 5 hours of public comment and debate, the council voted 3-2 to take no action on whether to denounce the remarks by Trump and his comments on women, Latinos, Muslims, veterans, immigrants and refugees.

Mayor Tom Tait was one of three on the council who voted to table the resolution introduced by Councilwoman Kris Murray. The others voting to table the measure were council members James Vanderbilt and Lucille Kring. Murray and Councilman Jordan Brandman voted against tabling it.

Trump supporters in attendance applauded the vote.

At the start of the 5 p.m. meeting, more than 76 people lined up to speak in front of the council, many about the resolution that Murray introduced.

Murray, who later introduced an amendment to her original resolution to remove Trump’s name and denounce all presidential candidates with divisive rhetoric, said her intention was to stand up for those Anaheim minorities hurt by his words.

“I want them to know that they have a voice in the city,” Murray said. “Words can be harmful and can have a genuine impact in people’s lives and the council should weigh in on this.”

Tait said the city had no business weighing in on a national campaign.

Mexico is angry!

“Mexico is angry”? Texas and all states that border Mexico along with the United States are the ones who should be angry, because of Mexico’s policy to unload their unwanted citizens on us! Mexico is angry…    The shoe is on the other foot and the Mexicans from the State of Sonora, Mexico do not like it. Can you believe the nerve of these people? It’s almost funny. The State of Sonora is angry at the influx of Mexicans into Mexico .     The state legislators from the Mexican State of Sonora traveled to Tucson to complain about Arizona ‘s new employer crackdown on illegals from Mexico . It seems that many Mexican illegals are returning to their hometowns and the officials in the Sonora state government are ticked off. A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to state that Arizona’s new ‘Employer Sanctions Law’ will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state. At a news conference, the legislators said that Sonora (Arizona’s southern neighbor) made up of mostly of small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools that it will face as Mexican workers return to their hometowns from the USA without jobs or money. >>>>>>> The Arizona law, which took effect Jan. 1, punishes Arizona employers who knowingly hire individuals without valid legal documents to work in the United States . Penalties include suspension of, or loss of, their business license. The Mexican legislators are angry because their own citizens are returning to their hometowns, placing a burden on THEIR state government instead of ours. >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> ‘How can Arizona pass a law like this?’ asked Mexican Rep Leticia Amparano-Gamez, who represents Nogales . ‘There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona ,’ she said, speaking in Spanish. ‘Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and who were sending money to their families return to their hometowns in Sonora without jobs,’ she said ‘We are one family, socially and economically,’ she said of the people of Sonora and Arizona. >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> Wrong! The United States is a sovereign nation, not a subsidiary of Mexico , and its taxpayers are not responsible for the welfare of Mexico ‘s citizens. It’s time for the Mexican government, and its citizens, to stop feeding parasitically off the United States and to start taking care of its/their own needs. >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> Too bad that other states within the USA don’t pass a law just like that passed by Arizona . Maybe that’s the answer, since our own Congress will do nothing! >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> *New Immigration Laws* >>>>>>> Be sure to read to the bottom or you will miss the message… >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> 1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools. >>>>>>> 2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language. >>>>>>> 3. All government business will be conducted in our language. >>>>>>> 4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here. >>>>>>> 5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office. >>>>>>> 6. Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or any other government assistance programs. Any who are a burden will be deported. >>>>>>> 7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. >>>>>>> 8. If foreigners come here and buy land, their options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country. >>>>>>> 9. Foreigners may have NO protests; NO demonstrations, NO waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, NO bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation. >>>>>>> 10.. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you. >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> Too strict.? The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO ! If it’s good for Americans to obey Mexican laws, then it’s good vice versa.!!! >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. An idea whose time has come: Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come. Have each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise. >>>>>>>  >>>>>>> In three days, most people in The United States of America will have read the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.    You are one of my 20. If you don’t have twenty, pass it on to whatever number you can!    “The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

No One Works in 1 in 5 U.S. Families

In 2015, there were 16,060,000 families with no member employed

There were one in five families in the United States in 2015, or 19.7 percent, in which no one in the family worked, according to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“Families are classified either as married-couple families or as families maintained by women or men without spouses present,” explains the bureau. “Families include those without children as well as those with children under age 18.”

There were 81,410,000 families in the United States in 2015. Of those, there were 16,060,000 families in which no member was employed, or 19.7 percent of the total.

The number has remained relatively steady since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking this data since 1995.

That year, the percent of families in which no one had a job was 18.8 percent. The percentage hit an all-time high of 20.2 percent in 2011. It held steady at 20 percent in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, it declined to 19.9 percent and in 2015 it declined again to 19.7 percent.

According to the bureau, an individual is counted as employed if they did any work at all in the survey reference week as paid employees, worked in their own business, profession or on their own farm, or worked 15 hours or more as unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a member of the family.

 The 19.7 percent of families in which no one was employed means they could have either been unemployed or not in the labor force (for example, married retirees).
