"Shenandoah, PA Immigration Rally Coverage"
I will be joining other patriots in Shenandoah, Pennsylvania this Saturday, August 30, 2008 at the Voice of the People rally being held at Babe Ruth Memorial Field. For those who don't know Shenandoah is currently in the spotlight for events that occurred on July 12, 2008 when a 25-year-old man, Luis Ramirez, was meeting a 15-year-old girl in a park at 11PM. He was confronted by some youth in the community. After an argument where it is now found in court that both used racial comments, the situation escalated. It became physical and in the end this man lost the fight and was beaten so severely that 2 days later he died.
It turned out that this man happened to be an illegal alien and now groups who are pro illegal alien are in the community demanding "justice". They are stating that those who are pro-immigration enforcement have had a bearing on his death - and in some cases stated that we actually condone them. You can read more about this at PA Pundits posts on the Shenandoah, PA incident where Wendi has recounted the events and some facts in the case.
This rally is not in support of the youths and their actions!
I will be speaking at this rally, as will Ruth of Illegal Protest and members of Voice of the People USA. You can come and show your support. Here are the details.

Of course, his medical bills will be paid by his home country? When pigs fly.
And do these anti law enforcement groups object to rocks being thrown at our border patrol?
I'm undecided on this issue but certainly the word should be spread to those who would waltz across our border as though they have a right; STAY HOME!!!
And what was he going to do with a 15 y/o girl; discuss immigration policy? I'm sure in his culture a non pregnant 15 y/o is a spinster and he was doing her a service. Yes, make even more babies to leach off our social services while demonizing the gringo.

I just want to thank you and Ruth for braving the hate rhetoric being spewed by our opponents and showing up to take a stand for this great country and for this great little city that is being told that it is "No good" and "Unsafe". We are willing to confront fear and show this city that we have nothing to fear at all and that we are here to help unify this city and bring them closer together rather than expanding the divide that has been created by the likes of MALDEF and LA RAZA!
We are coming together this saturday because it is our job to dispell anti americanism, we are gathering because it is our mission to make others feel safe in their own communities, we are gathering because the people of Shenandoah have spoken and they want a voice, they want someone to help them and assist them with bringing their community together again! They are begging for us to come and stand up to their local politicians ignorance as it relates to illegal immigration, the city council of shenandoah has put a version of mayor Barletta's IIRA on the table for a vote next month and we intend on doing our part in reminding the mayor and others there that the people want it and they are demanding action and they have the power to do the right thing!
I ask you all to thank Digger for his continued service to our country and for not backing down from any and all adversities EVER!! God bless you all and I hope to see as many patriots as possible this saturday night!
