Members of the Minuteman Project and our friends over at the Freedom Folks took their message to the doors of the Mexican Consulate in Chicago this weekend. They're rallying against the continued meddling in our immigration policy that the Mexican government engages in and the lax immigration enforcement going on in our country.
Surprisingly the news media didn't show up to the protest when they heard there wouldn't be any counter-protesters. Without counter-protester there would be a low chance of violence or general mayhem. After all the Minutemen aren't known for lawbreaking and acts of vandalism and assault like the supporters of illegal aliens are.
We're lucky to have a good team of reporters in the form of the Freedom Folks though who managed to take a lot of pictures and report on the rally. Here's an excerpt:
You may rightly wonder what a twenty or thirty people can accomplish. It's ridiculous, right? Pissin' in the wind I believe is the phrase. I mean in a city of three million people, half a million of which are illegal aliens, we're wasting our time right?
Nope, we are holding out hope to those who aren't yet brave enough to stand with us. Every protest we've held has drawn more people, and at each protest we find more and more people of every race and color nodding and honking and waving.
Now go read the rest and see all the pictures.
