Ay Dios Mio!!!! They are trying to send Dora the Explorer back across the border!!!

When did we get to the point where deporting cartoon characters become a viable option? Pictures of a “beat up” Dora the Explorer surfaced on the internet last week. They were in reference to the immigration debate in Arizona. At first it appears that some wisenheimer was trying to be funny for their friends. But if you keep looking online, you will see that more images of Dora appear. She is either jumping over fences with illegal aliens or having her picture on boarding crossing signs. All these years of entertaining American children and this is how they do her? No one had a problem when she showed up on the scene with a monkey that wore shoes. And you really can’t get any weirder than that. Arizona makes a bill into law and all these years in America don't mean anything. I guess now she will never know that she was a fixture in American homes. I wonder if this is how illegal’s working as housekeepers in Arizona must feel?

I don't know how Dora feels, but I know how my neighbours and I feel: angrier, frightened and put upon.

Being a black in AZ I've always been wary of encounters with police officers. It's been ingrained in me since childhood. Now we're just waiting for midnight raids, checkpoints and more abuse.

Those ppl with the Dora signs don't live here and most likely are not minorities. We're not laughing.

It's sad because we all know that this is just the beginning.

Debo Blue - The word I keep getting from blacks in Arizona is mixed on the bill. Good to hear your view points. Sounds dangerous...

Redbonegirl97 - Yup Yup!!

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Reggie - I think that is one of the most famous statements that speaks the most truth. I know that illegal aliens in America are an issue but first the wanted to do profiling which they said wouldn't be profiling. Now they are getting rid of ethnic studies. Will we be burning books next week?

I think that this is wrong...why would the use something our children indentify with as a poster to get their point across....

This is just sad
