Immigration Rally Pics - April 10, 2006, 04:11 PM

I snapped a couple of pictures of part of the rally today and thought I'd share. Whether or not anyone agrees or disagrees with the protestors, everyone should agree with the right to protest, and in that vein, I thought I'd share with others who couldn't witness it first hand.

Sorry for the poor quality, but I only had my phone.

Interesting pictures.

However, I'm not touching the subject with a ten foot pole.

Pussies...

You're gonna find me hard pressed to attempt to criminilize people simply trying to make a better life for themselves and their families. Last time I checked, that's part of what made this country great and many of the people that immigrated here over the last century, such as refugee's from war torn Europe, etc, did so "illegally" and were granted citizenship after the fact. Should they be paying taxes that help support our systems of everyday life...roads, water, protection, etc.? Yes...

At this point in the game, the government has slipped (again). Secure the boarders and QUICKLY find a reasonable system to legaize who is here NOW. Preisent Fox needs to get his shit and the country together.

Unless you are Native American somewhere along line your family member(s) came by boat or plane.



*Sidenote- on my way home heading 28 south some jerk in the backseat of an SUV was hanging out the window waving an American flag at a truck full of Spanish men, while flicking them off. It made me sick to my stomach yet I understood once I saw the Bush bumpersticker on the SUV.

I totally agree with boom on this one... you all are a bunch of pussies. You can discuss other shit, but not this??? Fuck that, I'm with boom all the way, secure our borders NOW and find a way to make the illegals in the country, legal... Shit, we should be rallying to help the Native American make a better life for their families, since our forefathers stole the land from them... and yes, I've lived next to a few Reservations.

Yes, something needs to be done with the system. I'm not against having people come to this great country. I'm all for it. But I am against people coming to this country and skating by on the benefits while not doing the necessary work to become a legal citizen.

My grandparents came across the Atlantic on boats. I've seen their pictures taken of the Statue of Liberty as they entered the NY Harbor. They went through the system (at the time, quick and complete) and lived their lives as citizens.

Am I the only one who thinks that there should be booths set up in all these rally areas with people standing by to naturalize and help these people so eager to live in the US become actual citizens? And something needs to be done to allow employers the ability to aid in this process. The company I work for employs Hispanics, though I'm not sure if they are citizens or not.

Meh, things need to be changed and I don't have a clue how to do it. :shrug:

Just discussed with a friend a little about this.... NOT to mention the people who are doing everything legit trying to come over for a long time, some as long as 10 years?

Boom and Lao, double amen. People are marching for the right to become citizens. It is wrong to ignore this. I agree they need to figure out a way to secure the boarders and legalize the people here now. I also heard the backlog on becoming legal has a 25 year backlog. Securing the boarder makes sense, the rest of BS they passed in the house is just stupid.

These people are American, to send them back to thier home countries is wrong. Allowing unsecured borders and allowing an unmonitored influx of people into the country will destablize it (ie the 3 familys living in the condo accross from me illegally driving the price of housing up up up and the standard of living down, the massive influx of Mexican workers is destroying the viability of jobs in southern california and effecting housing in the same way).

Part of the lack of response is the time of day of the post.

My opinions are a little harsh and I will prolly get bad rep for it.

But here it comes.

Its a political mindgame said politicos are fighting for ileagal votes. Poppycock they cant vote. The ileagals that are making les than min wage do it under the table so they actually take home more than a lot of people that are born and raised as legal citizens. If you dont belive me go out to some small midwest town. Six bucks an hour is good money. Well along comes Jose Gonzales Ramierez Lupo Raul Santiago to some underpaid farmer who pays him 4.75 an hour. Saves the farmer time and money. No tax book work on top of the buck and a half savings.

This all started as an anti terrorism thing. Al Queda has already said they arent trying to get more asholes in country. Guess where they are recruting from.

Got a clue?

MS-13 is one of thier biggest spawning grounds. There are others to be sure.
And where do these assholes come from at the rate of many thousand a day? It aint from Canada.

The Mexican army has been on our soil shooting at our Border patrol to help these cretains get accross.

Im all for legal immigration. As for the border, put up a 20 foot wall and shoot whoever gets within 200 yards.

Off my box for now

Clearly sending all illegal immigrants home is foolish and unrealistic. But no more so than turning a blind eye and giving all illegal immigrants citizenship. The right answer lies somewhere in between. We have immigration laws and borders for a reason. I won't pretend to understand the political, social and economic reasons for all of it, but it exists, and for that reason should be respected and enforced. There is a legal process by which people come to America today. I imagine that there are many thousands that do it each year. There are of course millions of illegal immigrants, and I am sure that most are hard working and contribute greatly to society. That doesn't change the fact that they are here illegally. The argument that they are doing jobs that noone else wants to do, so they should be allowed to stay is ridiculous to me. What happens when the immigrants become legal citizens, taxes have to be paid, minimum wage requirements have to be met, etc. Are those same employers going to magically be able to pay it, or are more illegal immigrants going to come in and fill those same positions? What then?

In the same breath that some people are saying that we need to secure the borders now, those same people are also saying that we need to make all illegal immigrants legal. If the second part is no big deal, then why bother with the first? Because there is a problem with just allowing anyone in? If so, then why is legalizing everyone so easy for everyone to concede?

That being said, if I were in a position that I could not provide for my family in another country and coming to the US illegally were my only option, I certainly would do it. I would also be prepared to face the consequences of that action.

I certainly don't have the answer, but I think there has to be some compromise. And from what little I've read in the papers, it sounds like they have some good compromises on the table.
