    300 Protest Illegal Immigrant Crackdown

    300 Protest Illegal Immigrant Crackdown
    By Associated Press
    Mon Sep 4, 0:14 AM

    HAZLETON, Pa. - About 300 people, many from Philadelphia and other parts of the state, rallied Sunday in opposition to the city's crackdown on illegal immigrants.

    Some carried signs with slogans such as "We The People Includes Everyone" and "The Only People Who Weren't Immigrants Are Native Americans" as they listened to religious and civic leaders speak.

    "This ordinance does not include only Latinos," organizer Dr. Agapito Lopez told the crowd. "Many people who are not Latinos will be without jobs if this becomes law."

    Hazleton, a city of about 31,000 residents, approved one of the toughest laws of its kind in the United States in July. The law imposes $1,000 fines on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants, denies business permits to companies that give them jobs and makes English the city's official language.

    The city agreed Friday to delay enforcing the law after the American Civil Liberties Union and Hispanic groups filed suit. Mayor Lou Barletta said the city is working on a replacement ordinance that he believes will better stand up in court.

    The Rev. Miguel Rivera, president of the Washington, D.C.-based National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leadership, said his members came to represent local illegal immigrants who could not protest because they feared arrest.

    "We are here for what is just and what is moral," Rivera said.


    What part of illegal don’t they understand?

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    I just don't understand this, they came here illegally!!! Now they say they have the right to stay?? Ive also heard them say, be careful because were going to vote. I didn't know anyone except citizens could vote? So if we say this crime is ok, which one comes next?? Since it's accepted in their culture to hit their wives, should we accept that?

    I do some compassion, if they are working, and paying taxes and such. And are willing to accept some sort of penalty or fine or something, then maybe give them a temporary work visa. But not for the whole family, just the one here working, and you agree to buy your own insurance, or pay for any exspenses incurred while your here.

    Not according to Democrats......


    June 3, 2006

    If an election can turn on a sentence, this could be the one: “You don't need papers for voting.”

    On Thursday night, Francine Busby, the Democratic candidate for the 50th Congressional District, was speaking before a largely Latino crowd in Escondido when she uttered those words. She said yesterday she simply misspoke.

    But someone taped it and a recording began circulating yesterday. After she made that statement at the meeting, Busby immediately said: “You don't need to be a registered voter to help (the campaign).”

    any law you find offensive don't worry about it. if you sell dope and breed babies that you don't want to take responsibility for it is ok the law is just trying to keep you from making a living. it just not fair. i don't want to be a positive and beneficial part of society. i just want hand outs. then complain about that. i should get more from the people that work. it just not fair, i only went to school when i got kicked out for not going to school. why is everybody picking on me. i think i will vote democrat they will give me your money for my vote. it don't matter if i'm a convicted felony.

    wow, got a litte bit off subject. sorry.
    what don't they understand about illegal.

    Look what came in my email today - I'm tempted to go down there

    Come On, Americans....
    Let's Roll! See You in Laredo!

    From Jim Gilchrist, Founder - The Minuteman Project - September 5, 2006


    Dear Americans,
    I would like to thank all those individuals that are stepping forward to bring national awareness to this critical issue of open borders and the blatant disregard for the rule of law. Operation Sovereignty 9/11 is building faster than I ever dreamed and I am deeply impressed with the level of dedication of my fellow patriots.

    The Minuteman Project, in conjunction with the Shannon McGauley's Texas Minutemen, Glenn Spencer's American Border Patrol, and several other minuteman/woman groups from around the nation, will converge on Laredo, Texas on 9/11/06 to launch a border observation and reporting mission. The mission will include areas from Laredo to El Paso.
    The operation will continue from September 11th, the fifth anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, and will continue for 60 days through federal Election Day, November 7th.

    The Minuteman Project's Operation Sovereignty 9/11 will be a constant, daily reminder to Americans that the best solution to stop the literal takeover of the United States is to remove from office all the politicians who have proliferated this calamity during their time in public office.

    Our goals:
    (1) Increase the security of the United States of America and her citizens by protecting our border - a job our government refuses to do.
    (2) To continue bringing national awareness to the illegal alien invasion crisis jeopardizing the future of the United States of America.
    (3) To focus the national media spotlight upon the criminal, economic, and political carnage in Mexico that is driving half of its population illegally into the US.
    (4) To protest the wrongful arrest and conviction of two agents of the United States Border Patrol in what appears to be the most blatant violation of civil rights by an El Paso, Texas jury, judge and prosecutor in recent history.
    Come On, Americans. Let's Roll! See You in Laredo!
    Click this link to Volunteer for Operation Sovereignty 9/11:


    The Minuteman Project policy is always to assemble peacefully under the First Amendment to present our grievance and to operate strictly within the rule of law. To this end, the Project welcomes inquiry and participation by any law enforcement organization, and any media outlets who conduct themselves under the professional canons of journalism.

    Let me state this for the record:
    Anarchist journalists and propagandists, whose intentions are to create witch hunts, lynch mobs, suppression of the rights of Americans to freely assemble and speak, or to bring violence and hostility against Minuteman Project volunteers or other citizens sympathetic to our cause, are not welcome. Such sinister intentions do not reflect the true meaning of professional journalism. This includes members of the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the so-called Anti Defamation League (ADL), certain political office holders, and other charlatans of tolerance whose sole intentions have proven to be the literal suppression of the First Amendment for those with whom they disagree.

    The Minuteman Project has extended an invitation to all members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives to join us for the kickoff rally on September 11, 2006 at the U.S. Border Patrol station at 207 West Del Mar Blvd. in Laredo, Texas at 12 noon. In addition, I invite the Mayor of Laredo, Texas, Raul Salinas, and Texas state representative Richard Raymond to a public debate with me to discuss their hostile remarks referring to The Minuteman Project members and other American citizens as "racists" and other derogatory statements they have made about U.S. citizens. Mayor Raul Salinas and state representative Richard Raymond did not make it clear which part of the MULTI-ETHNIC Minuteman Project they consider racist. The Project has 55% women and minority membership. About 25% of the Project members are non-white.
    I invite all those who wish to learn the truth about our multi-ethic Minutemen and peacefully assemble under the 1st Amendment with us to discover for themselves that the freedom of speech and the right to assemble is not just for the few but for all law abiding people of America.
    Let's make a positive statement that sends a clear message to America that the rule of law must be enforced.

    Join Us in Securing Our Border: Volunteer for Operation Sovereignty today!

    Cheers,
    Jim Gilchrist, Founder - The Minuteman Project (Laguna Hills, Ca.)
