I'm really waiting for the day when one of these rally's praising the breaking of our laws is raided by authorities and they're all rounded up. Not only the illegal aliens at the event, but all the leaders for aiding and abetting the illegal alien lawbreakers in this country.
I think I'll have to wait a long time for that to happen and it surely won't be with this administration.
The are planning on fighting H.R. 4437 a bill passed that would wall off part of the border and crack down on illegal immigration and their supporters.
The march is being coordinated by chairman and professor of ethnic studies at the University of California at Riverside, Armando Navarro. Good to see we have such open border activists in our schools. Ethnic studies does not mean open borders Mr. Navarro.
He immediately played the race card even though he has managed to become a professor at a college in this country despite being Hispanic. Hypocrite? You make the call.
Led by the National Alliance for Human Rights (NAHR), the march was approved last week during a meeting in Riverside, Calif., of more than 500 immigration advocates who mapped out a strategy of "social justice and political empowerment" involving Hispanic groups from throughout the United States and Mexico.
Mr. Navarro told The Washington Times that 2006 will be a year of "massive mobilizations, activism and political participation to countervail the heinous, racist and nativist crusade" of those who support the bill and the construction of "an Iron Curtain" along the U.S.-Mexico border.
... the foreign ministers of 11 Latin American countries opposed to the Sensenbrenner bill met in Cartagena, Colombia, last week and also agreed to begin a massive lobbying campaign in Washington to defeat the legislation.
The ministers will send a team to Capitol Hill this week to identify key members of Congress on the immigration issue. They will call for the implementation of a guest-worker program, outline their opposition to the criminalization of illegal entry, demand better treatment of migrants, and condemn proposals for tighter control of the U.S.-Mexico border.
Ministers who attended the meeting were from Colombia, Mexico, Panama, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. Migrants from those countries are believed by U.S. authorities to send about $32 billion in remittances to relatives at home each year.
There's no doubt that we have foreign agents working in this country against our best interests. They even admit it outright that they are sending lobbyists to woo lawmakers.They have $32 billion -- and growing -- at stake each year and are very afraid that we could actually succeed in stopping illegal aliens from coming across the border and therefore stop them from continuing to line their pockets.
Rather than spend money on economic development in their own countries they'd rather spend that money ensuring that America is less safe and that the poor of their country continue to send money home. Without this money coming in some of these leaders would not be in power as the people would have risen up by now. So instead they'll continue to push for us to allow them to sneak their criminals, their poor and their unskilled into our country so that they don't have to deal with them at home.

I agree with Luli. It is amazing to hear such one-sided and ignorant remarks from people who live in a land like America. I don't think any of those in support of the bill understand the implications of it.
This bill not only criminalizes people who are here illegally, it also criminalizes those who aid them. It's an open invitation to chaos. How can a society function when people are afraid to turn to the police or go to the doctor or visit their families for fear that they might be penalized or incarcerated. It is ridiculous.
While this bill may seem like the correct choice (although I think it is very debatable) just because it seems right in theory does not mean it will be right in practice.
Think of how much money it will cost to enforce this bill. Now we won't have a handful of criminals among the illegal aliens, but we will have an entire population of 10 million who are criminals. Can you imagine? 10 million people who would be criminals under H.R. 4437. Yet, more than half of those soon to be criminals are morally standing people who work to earn a living and if it were not for the unfortunate tag of "illegal" would be average law abiding citizens.
The United States has had its share of failed laws. The one that comes to mind is Prohibition. Do you see the similarities? Innocent people, law passed, innocent people turned guilty.
It is important to protect our borders from terrorists. No one wants another 9/11. It was a horrible time for everyone. However, the passing of a blanket law is not the answer.Laws should be passed to target terrorists not hard-working, honest and decent people.
