L.A. Rally Supports Illegal Immigrants

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Led by the family of a teenager who committed suicide, several thousand people rallied Saturday at City Hall to demand reforms allowing illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S.

Friends and family members of 14-year-old Anthony Soltero were at the front of a march through downtown that ended with the rally. They held signs with his photo that said, "Continue the struggle in Anthony's name."

"We're supporting him, and we want justice for our son," said his mother, Louise Corales, 32, of Ontario.

The teen shot and killed himself with a .22-caliber rifle at home March 30. According to attorneys for the teen's family, a suicide note said he was upset after a vice principal at his middle school warned he would be disciplined for leaving school on the day of an immigration protest.

Immigrant advocates have cited Soltero as a casualty of their campaign. School district officials dispute the assertion that the eighth-grader was threatened and question whether he even attended an immigration rally the day he left school.

Police estimated that about 3,000 people, many with children, gathered at City Hall - well below the attendance at other immigration rallies in the past several weeks. There were no arrests or reports of problems.

At the rally, speakers called for amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants in the nation. They also reminded people of a planned May 1 boycott of work, school and business that is being dubbed "a day without an immigrant."

Some students who had skipped school to take part in previous protests were among the marchers who waved Mexican and American flags and held signs with messages in English and Spanish such as: "Our parents are not terrorists."

Jeffrey Santamaria, 16, of Glendale was with his parents, whom he said have been in this country for two decades without proper documents.

They "deserve to be respected. They are just here to work," Santamaria said.

I encourage all illegal immigrants and their supporters to follow Anthony's example.

Let's see - the last "poster boy" for illegal immigrants was just arrested for an armed home invasion.

And now this idiot kills himself because he wasn't allowed to skip school to support law-breakers.



Yep. It's gotta be leftists.

I wonder if they are going to have the usual follow up stories about how he was "getting his life back together"?
