Over the weekend outraged citizens in 19 states came out to protest lack of control of our borders and employers who hire illegal aliens. From California to Connecticut thousands protested. In most cases they were met with counter-protests of illegal aliens -- and those who support them -- who tried to shout them down.
To date I have not heard of any protesters being arrested for violence, but I have heard many stories of the counter-protesters being arrested. I wonder why this is?
Freedom Folks attended the protest in Cicero, Illinois and sent in some pictures of their protest and those who were protesting against them. You can learn a lot about who in this country supports illegal aliens by looking at the pictures.
Why are these illegal aliens defending Home Depot?
Could it be that Home Depot supports illegal aliens?
Why is this radio station supporting illegal immigration?
Could it be that that is their target market and that they are making money off of the illegal alien crisis in this country? Freedom Folks
informs me that La Ley in Spanish means "The Law". How ironic is that?
Why can this lady not spell?
Inquiring minds want to know!
About 30 opponents of illegal immigration, including members of the controversial Chicago Minuteman Project, picketed the site and urged contractors not to hire illegal workers. The protest coincided with others around the nation at day labor sites.
Nearby, about 125 day laborers and immigrant advocates defended the workers' right to seek jobs at the site and touted the contributions of undocumented immigrants to the economy.
The protests were peaceful, in contrast to an October summit by the Minutemen in Arlington Heights that resulted in a chaotic scene and five arrests of counter-protesters.
"This is about law enforcement," group co-founder Rick Biesada said. "We are either a nation of laws or a nation of anarchy."
Protesters, which included the Indiana Federation for Immigration Reform and Enforcement, had hoped to videotape the license plates of contractors who solicit day laborers and later report them to immigration authorities and the Internal Revenue Service. But police kept them far from the workers.
So, the police are actually defending illegal aliens and their law breaking employers in Cicero? What a disgrace!
The Chicago area wasn't the only place to have protests of course. Save Our State organized several rallies in California. Including at the Home Depot in Alhambra where they actually had shoppers coming out and joining their protest against illegal aliens and employers who hire them!
Alhambra had a good showing of support.
Alhambra pulled off it's protest with no counter-protesters. They managed to work behind the scenes to organize the rally without the vicious illegal alien forces finding out.
The Associated Press tried to downplay the nationwide rally, but did do some actual reporting.
In Danbury, Conn., about 50 people calling themselves the Connecticut Citizens for Immigration Control spent about two hours chanting and holding signs that read "Arrest Illegal Employers."
Paul Streitz, who organized the demonstrations, said members believe illegal immigrants are taking jobs from citizens while driving down property values.
"This is not a racist thing," said Daniel Anastasia, 46, a construction worker from Westchester, N.Y. "We pay taxes, they don't. I get paid what the union says. The contractor pays them cash. It's not fair to me."
In Rancho Cucamonga things went well also with little counter-protest. This first hand report from member Legion at Save Our State
The rally at Rancho Cucamonga went very well. When I arrived at about 7:40, there were about 25 of us already there and a mob of about 100 day laborers were across the street, watching and pretty much staying quiet. Within the next hour or so, our group had grown to well over 50 and we owned the entire side of the street facing the day labor center. The day laborers now had moved forward and began with the usual assortment of cat calls and rants, but there was very little goonage to support them; only the Pomona Day Labor insurgents showed up with a large banner.
There is video of a protest calling for the firing of Representative David Dreier (WMF 20M).
There were other protests across the country that I don't have first hand knowledge of to report on. If you have further information on any of these rally's please contact me.
