“I would say, let them fast until they starve to deth then that solves the problem. Because then we won’t have a problem about giving them green cards because they’re illegal aliens, they don’t belong here to begin with.”
DECLARACION DEL COMITE DE PADRES UNIDOS (Espanol sigue)

We of el Comite de Padres Unidos are asking that other organizactions sign on to this letter as soon as possible. You can sign on for your organizacion by replying to Leticia Zamora al zamoraleticia112727 [at] yahoo.com with the name of your organization. Please indicate if you wish to “sign on” to both paragraphs of the letter or just the first paragraph. If you don’t specifically indicate a preference, we will assume that you are signing on to the entire letter.

Here is a quote from Michael Savage’s July 5th broadcast when he discussed a fast organized by students from across California to show their support for the DREAM Act.

“I would say, let them fast until they starve to deth then that solves the problem. Because then we won’t have a problem about giving them green cards because they’re illegal aliens, they don’t belong here to begin with.”

Declaration:

On the 5th of July of this year, Mr. Savage who transmits from a Bay Area radio station, said the following: “El dia 5 de Julio de este ano, Sr. Savage que transmite de una radio estacion del Area de la Bahia, dijo lo siguiente sobre los estudiantes hacienda un ayuno apoyando el DREAM Act. “I would say, let them fast until they starve to death then that solves the problem. Because then we won’t have a problem about giving them green cards because they’re illegal aliens, they don’t belong here to begin with.”

We feel offended by Mr. Savage’s comments, that are only promoting hate among his listeners, to the point of wanting the death of these young people. We believe that this person is promoting hate against immigrant communities. We think that it is horrible tha a person who is listened to be by many people, is saying something so barbaric, wanting the death of these joung people who are very dedicated to their studies and whiose only sin is that they are children of immigrants who were brought without their own decision by their parents when they were very young. In addition, they are only dedicated to be good students, and among them there are many who have a 4.0 GPA (Grade Point Average). In addition, they are sacrificing so much for what they believe is a just cause.

Declaracion:

El dia 5 de Julio de este ano, Sr. Savage que transmite de una radio estacion del Area de la Bahia, dijo lo siguiente: “Que debemos dejar morir de hambre a los estudiantes immigrantes que estan hacienda Fasting en San Francisco y otras ciudades”. Nos sentimos ofendidos por los comentarios del Sr. Savage, que solo esta promulgando odio entre los radio escuchas, hasta el punto de desear la muerte de estos jovenes. Creemos que esta personas esta promoviendo el odio en contra de las comunidades inmigrantes. Pensamos que es horrible que una persona que es escuchada por muchisima gente, este diciendo semejante barbaridad, inclusive deseando la muerte de estos jovenes que son muy dedicados a sus estudios y su unico pecado es ser hijos de immigrantes traidos involuntariamente por sus padres cuando ellos eran muy pequenos, ademas ellos solo se dedican a ser buenos estudiantes y entre ellos hay muchos que son 4. GPA, ademas de que estan haciendo tanto sacrificio por lo que creen es una causa justa.

Tambien tenemos los siguientes grupos que estan apoyando el DREAM Act
Por que es justo por estos jovenes, y bueno para nuestra economia pensando que somos muchos los Americanos que nos vamos a retirar muy pronto de nuestros trabajos y los necesitamos a ellos para que puedan pagar nuestras cuotas del Seguro Social y esto solo va a ser si les dejamos terminar sus estudios, darles trabajo y hacerlos que paguen lo que todos debemos pagar.
