(Illegal) Immigrants Take to American Streets!

From CNN now Live--

Demonstrators demanding a path to citizenship for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants took to U.S. streets Tuesday while others lobbied Congress for action.

In southwest Detroit, which has a large Hispanic population, hundreds of people wore red and white, and carried American flags to a rally.

"Most of the undocumented people come here as a necessity of survival," said Rosendo Delgado, of Latinos United, one of the groups organizing the march. "For them, it's the only choice."

"There was a sort of energy last year," said Gordon Mayer, a vice president of the Community Media Workshop, which helped groups organize the Chicago march. "This year that boulder has split up into a lot of smaller rocks."

This is .. imo of course, insane..

We allow ILLEGAL immigrants to march on OUR streets..

Personally, I believe they should be rounded up on the spot for being so brazen about walking openly and admitting you are not here legally.

The fact that American's do not care shows the complacency this country is having towards loosing its own identity, allowing illegal aliens to close down city centers so they can illegally march against our governments policies.


"It used to be that Hispanic immigrants, those who came legally, were more conservative on the issue," said Joe Garcia, a Cuban-American who heads the Democratic Party's Miami-Dade County chapter.

"But now it's become so wrapped up with issues of racism and identity, even Puerto Ricans and Cubans care about immigration," he said.

Legal immigrants that came here legally where once against illegal immigration (and many still are) but because the Democratic party and other self intrested members of society have declared those against illegal immigration are racist, more and more people are fighting for "their people" against "white people" to become citizens.

This is America now. I never thought I would see the decline of my own country in my life time..

We allow illegal immigrants to march in our streets ask your local cops/highway patrol/sheriffs. Yea, no law enforcement is allowed to do anything against an illegal immigrant such as deportation except for ICE. However ICE is an organization intentionally designed to operate without a pair of bullocks. You should read my past threads if illegal immigration bothers you because it sure bothers me.

Yea illegals can do what ever an American can after all our government sees them as citizens so they can collect any Federal/State benefits that you can. Most illegals have social security cards too. Just remember this is why you pay taxes

It's nice to see other people starting to get fed up with the current situation. It makes me feel a bit more sane.

Illegal aliens = the modern Trojan Horse.
It's an invasion and yet many people say 'oh, the poor illegals'....

We've posted the massive crime stats of these illegals time and time again.
We've posted the stats that show overrun hospitals and schools.
We've posted the stats that show 1/5 of the Mexican work force is
here in the USA ILLEGALLY and is sending most of the money back
to Mexico.
We've posted the stats showing how they use our infrastructure, but
don't pay taxes.

It's a TROJAN HORSE which many people are buying
.. and it's going to bite us (USA) on our backend very soon.

Unfortunately, alot of those who are saying "oh the poor illegals" are the ones holding elected office.

Something, almost anything, must be done. That something, however, does not apply to amnesty, or guest worker program for illegals already here.

Controlling the borders. If that means letting certain countries defend themselves, then so be it. I'll let you all decide which countries I'm refering to, and they aren't neccessarily in the Middle East, or not all of them anyway.

I say that they should get citizenship if they enlist in the military for 10 years without base pay (meaning they get special pay and pay that goes to their dependents) and receive an honorable discharge without a history of any reprimands.

Sounds harsh, yes. Because it is. But it's the alternative to just kicking them out.

Johnmike. That is indeed an alternative that could be explored. It would certainly be an incentive for good behaviour and asimmilating in the process.

I believe that is actually already a program??

If you mean give them the option instead of deportation enlist, im all for it..

Except they would have to learn how to speak english.. but of course that is an easy way to ensure new citizens are speaking English.

Last nights incident with the illegals throwing rocks and bottles at police resulting in foam bullets being shot could be the insight to future events to come.. 11 million angry illegals
If they decided to riot and turn violent our police force could never handle such a large population.

More from CNN with Lous Dobbs (He always has great commentary)

What a spectacle, what a mess. What a day for thousands and thousands of illegal aliens and their supporters to march through the streets of many of our biggest cities demanding amnesty for illegally entering the country.

Tuesday was given over to illegal aliens and their supporters to demand forgiveness for using fraudulent documents and assisting others in entering this country illegally. What a day for illegal aliens and their supporters to demand not only amnesty but also the end to immigration raids and an end to deportations.

May Day was a peculiar choice for those demonstrations, a day in many countries in which international socialism is celebrated and a reminder of those old Soviet Union military parades.

It was also an unfortunate and ironic choice on the part of the organizers of the demonstrations. May 1 in the United States is actually Law Day, a day first established by President Eisenhower in 1958 and ultimately codified into law in 1961 at the beginning of John F. Kennedy's administration. The purpose of Law Day is to give all Americans an opportunity to reflect on our legal heritage, and by statute, encourages "the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life."

I'll bet you know about the illegal alien amnesty marches, but I don't know of a single news organization, electronic or print that pointed out that May 1 is America's Law Day. The cable news networks gave almost wall-to-wall coverage to the illegal alien demonstrations, but they apparently couldn't find any American celebrating Law Day.

And no one seems to want to take note that we are first a nation of laws, and that without those laws and their enforcement, the foundation of our great republic turns to sand. What a spectacle on Law Day for demonstrators to demand amnesty for those who broke the law to enter our country, many of whom also broke the law with fraudulent documents.

I have never heard of "law day" before.. but he makes excellent points in regards to illegal immigration.

Its breaking the law, period, we don't want them here and the damn government needs to get off its arses and protect our borders!

The only way they'd be able to handle it would result in incredible bloodshed. That we don't need.

Martial law would inevitably follow.

What does martial law have to do with this?

What disturbs me most about this sudden influx of illegal immigrants is that many of them do not care to adapt, some of them do not even respect the laws of this nation, besides the fact they already crossed illegaly. They refuse to learn english and want everyone to cater to them. While not all illegals are violent criminals some of them are and they continue their criminal patterns on American soil. The U.S. needs to stop catering to these illegals, but most of all, the employers must be dealt with ASAP. These employers hire coyotes to sneak truck loads of illegals. The source must be targeted or else nothing will change.

I just wonder what would happen if a group of Americans, Hondurans, Costa Ricans, etc. were to have a similar demonstration in Mexico?

I'd wager that the crack-down would be much harsher than it is in the States.

What say you?

If an American demonstrated in Mexico you can bet that they most likely won't live to tell about it.. Mexico is the most hypocritical nation in the world.

For instance.. Mexico claims its people need to flee because there are no jobs in Mexico..

Mexico is a VERY wealthy country.. however they refuse to put in place a single monopoly law! .. The result is corporations making billions upon billions and paying the people nothing.. the richest man in the world very shortly is going to be a Mexican.

Also, labor laws in Mexico state that you must be BORN in Mexico to have a job.. thats right, born.. naturalized citizens can't even get a job.. anyone who moves into Mexico will never be allowed to work.

Send these hypocrites back, and perhaps dismantle their corrupt government!
