Intimidating Letters Sent to OC Latinos

Tan NguyenGUEST: Gustavo Arellano, staff writer for the Orange County Weekly, writes the popular column “Ask a Mexican”

Orange County Congressional Candidate Tan Nguyen has stated that he will not drop out of his campaign even if he is charged with a crime relating to an intimidating letter sent to registered Democrats with Spanish surnames. Nguyen, a Republican and Vietnamese immigrant, is running against Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez in the 47th district. The source of controversy over his campaign is a targeted letter mailed out to 14,000 voters in his district that warned of jail time or deportation for any undocumented immigrant who casts a vote in the upcoming election. The letter, written in Spanish, used the word “emigrado,” a word that has no legal connotation and which simply refers to someone who has emigrated from another country. Last Saturday, state agents raided Nguyen’s Garden Grove campaign headquarters as well as his home in Santa Ana. Nguyen has refused to name the office manager or third party responsible for mailing the letters out. Congresswoman Sanchez is declining to comment on the controversy until the investigation comes to a conclusion as to whether or not the letter was illegal and constituted a violation of voting rights. Meanwhile, the California Secretary of State mailed letters out to the same 14,000 voters telling registered voters to ignore the mailer and characterized it as “unauthorized and inaccurate.”

    Loretta Sanchez should never comment because she is guilty of using illegal alien latinos to get into office.

    Is “arthur valdez” another Spanish surname alias a la “sergio ramirez?”

    The developers are saying that Defiance is a pixel
    perfect shooter, so if you aim at your target’s head it WILL be a headshot instead of the invisible dice rolling a 5 and telling you that you somehow missed. It should come as no surprise that i – Tunes is loaded full of pirate apps for i – Phone, i – Pod Touch, and i – Pad. The most unique thing about Ouya is that it is said to be “open” — although what this means is up for interpretation.

    I have been in touch with many musicians, artists that I would have never heard before.
    Some models, if they are equipped with remote start,
    will allow the customer to start the engine through the app wirelessly, doing so
    from any place where there is a cell phone signal available.
    Most stations will give you names of their more popular hosts and ask you to
    talk with them.

    Perfect pan size we encourage you take them back to your hotel and have them prepared.
    You will also want to have a supply of different lines
    that you can use. Yet sometimes a net is better to use because it
    usually doesn’t harm the fish and will most likely be easier for you to prepare the fish for later.

    The internet is fueling the success of music because it
    can be listened to at any time of the day and anywhere in the world.
    Often, long term schedules with a bit of breathing room work best.
    Another radio commercial production tip to chew
    on is to make sure the audio quality is excellent on any spot your produce.

    If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of the scale even though you are eating properly, pick three days of the week
    on which you will always weigh yourself (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
    Authorities inside the area will need to have an intensive understanding of
    laboratory and labeling techniques, infection security precautions, appropriate
    blood attract approaches to the elderly and for infants and even more.
    Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to
    lose weight and keep it off.
