Time For a Shot At Change

By David Glover
Announcement | July 26, 2011

WICHITA, Kan. - The Kansas Tequila Party inaugural event in Wichita will take place on July 29th, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. (CST) at Nomar Plaza, 204 E. 21st Street.

We will be rallying and registering new Hispanic voters at our registration booth. We will have speakers and entertainment available where our speakers will be discussing the unifying issue to Latinos from all political backgrounds -- the immigration issue.

Tea Party politician Kansas Representative Virgil Peck stated earlier this year that a way to handle the illegal immigration issue is to "shoot immigrants like feral hogs".

Our rally will be a rallying point and a rally cry against the bigotry facing the fastest growing population in the nation.

Immigrants contribute to the agricultural industry, the construction industry, etc., and are hard working individuals who contribute to the American society.

More importantly, we will be discussing how Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach seems to be more involved creating and helping push anti-immigrant legislation across the nation that is hurting the agricultural industry rather than handling the affairs of Kansas in a competent manner.

We are big believers in legal immigration reform, and Kris Kobach is more interested in unreasonable enforcement-only and restrictionist policies with his desire to send all undocumented immigrants back where they came from not realizing how many businesses rely on the immigrant's hard work ethic when they work under the hot scorching sun amidst pesticides and chemicals.

I hope you meant "Tequila Party" in your last sentence. I hate to think this group is tied in with the Tea Party.


The Tequila party is a Hispanic answer to the xenophobia of the Tea party


Diane, I fixed that typo and that last sentence now reads Tequila Party, not Tea Party. I'm sure that's what David meant.


Tell me David,

When a van full of illegal immigrants is found on I70 somewhere around Salina, on the way to work for a sweatshop in Kansas City, what should we do with them?


Thanks, Pam. I was pretty sure that's what David meant, but I would like to support this effort and I wanted to make sure I was supporting the correct group. Nomar Plaza is just down the street from us, so I can take a little walk and join in the festivities.

Hispanics settled in the Midtown and Northwest areas decades ago, making it the cultural center for all things Hispanic. I love living here. It's like living in another country sometimes.
