CHICAGO -- Thousands of chanting, flag-waving immigrants and activists rallied in cities across the country Thursday, attempting to reinvigorate calls for immigration reform in a presidential election year in which the economy has taken center stage.

From Washington to Miami to Los Angeles, immigrant rights activists demanded citizenship opportunities for the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and an end to raids and deportations.

Just a heads up, prepare for traffic jams

They did this two years ago, and it was a colossal PR blunder. Every time the "immigrant elite" tries to stir the pot, they harden resistance to their demands, and create animosity for immigrants of all stripes.

The demonstrations beg the question:

If you supposedly "came to this country to find work," why are you on strike?"

The impression that most Americans get (not just the anglos, but other minorities as well), is that we have allowed 12 million "takers" to come here illegally--and now they have new demands, as the unemployment rate rises.

America. Love it or . . . commit welfare fraud.
