Immigration Rallies Draw Thousands Nationwide
By TIM MOLLOY, Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES - Thousands of people across the country protested Friday against legislation cracking down on illegal immigrants, with demonstrators in such cities as Los Angeles, Phoenix and Atlanta staging school walkouts, marches and work stoppages.

Congress is considering bills that would make it a felony to be illegally in the United States, impose new penalties on employers who hire illegal immigrants and erect fences along one-third of the U.S.-Mexican border. The proposals have angered many Hispanics.

The Los Angeles demonstration led to fights between black and Hispanic students at one high school, but the protests were largely peaceful, authorities said.

Chantal Mason, a sophomore at George Washington Preparatory High, said black students jumped Hispanic students as they left classes to protest a bill passed the House in December that would make it a felony to be in the U.S. illegally.

"It was horrible, horrible," Mason said. "It's ridiculous that a bunch of black students would jump on Latinos like that, knowing they're trying to get their freedom."

In Phoenix, police said 10,000 demonstrators marched to the office of Republican Sen. Jon Kyl (news, bio, voting record), co-sponsor of a bill that would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave the country. The turnout clogged a major thoroughfare.

"They're here for the American Dream," said Malissa Greer, 29, who joined a crowd estimated by police to be at least 10,000 strong. "God created all of us. He's not a God of the United States, he's a God of the world."

Kyl had no immediate comment on the rally.

At least 500 students at Huntington Park High School near Los Angeles walked out of classes in the morning. Hundreds of the students, some carrying Mexican flags, walked down the middle of Los Angeles streets, police cruisers behind them.

The students visited two other area high schools, trying to encourage students to join their protest, but the schools were locked down to keep students from leaving, said Los Angeles district spokeswoman Monica Carazo.

In Georgia, activists said tens of thousands of workers did not show up at their jobs Friday after calls for a work stoppage to protest a bill passed by the Georgia House on Thursday.

That bill, which has yet to gain Senate approval, would deny state services to adults living in the U.S. illegally and impose a 5 percent surcharge on wire transfers from illegal immigrants.

Supporters say the Georgia measure is vital to homeland security and frees up limited state services for people legally entitled to them. Opponents say it unfairly targets workers meeting the demands of some of the state's largest industries.

Teodoro Maus, an organizer of the Georgia protest, estimated as many as 80,000 Hispanics did not show up for work. About 200 converged on the steps of the Georgia Capitol, some wrapped in Mexican flags and holding signs reading: "Don't panic, we're Hispanic" and "We have a dream, too."

Jennifer Garcia worried what would the proposal would do to her family. She said her husband is an illegal Mexican immigrant.

"If they send him back to Mexico, who's going to take care of them and me?" Garcia said of herself and her four children. "This is the United States. We need to come together and be a whole."

On Thursday, thousands of people filled the streets of Milwaukee for what was billed as "A Day Without Latinos" to protest efforts in Congress to target undocumented workers. Police estimated more than 10,000 people joined the demonstrations and march to downtown Milwaukee. Organizers put the number at 30,000.

I used to be extremely against illegal aliens invading our country, but after receiving a threat of being banned from ARFCOM the other day if I continued with that stance, I have since changed my opinion completely.

Where as the old 89grand would have said something like "Fuck those filthy illegal aliens" The new and improved 89grand now says:

I love illegal aliens migrants, I proudly support everything they do. I back their quest for a "better life" at any cost, even if that means degrading the living standards of U.S. citizens, a burden on the tax payers, the disappearance of any American culture and lanquage, the sharp increase in violent and non-violent crimes, the re-introduction of diseases that were a thing of the past, a weaking job market, and any other things that are considered negative only by extreme 88 racists.

to wonderful undocumented migrants.

Interesting that HBO just ran a movie about Chicanos walking out of L.A. schools in the 60's protests.

"It was horrible, horrible," Mason said. "It's ridiculous that a bunch of black students would jump on Latinos like that, knowing they're trying to get their freedom." Freedom to do what, exactly? Come into our country in violation of numerous state and federal laws, violate countless other laws and ordinances (including fraud, theft, trespassing, etc.) to find housing and employment (most of which is also illegal, i.e. sub-standard housing that poses a fire hazard, prostitution, drugs, etc.), avoid being checked for diseases and parasites we managed to get rid of and don't want people to bring into the country, and get away with not paying taxes or having any responsibilities whatsoever while they parasitically drain the citizens of the United States? That freedom?

In Phoenix, police said 10,000 demonstrators marched to the office of Republican Sen. Jon Kyl (news, bio, voting record), co-sponsor of a bill that would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave the country."Hi, we know you're here illegally, but instead of throwing you out we're giving you five years in which you can continue to fuck us over for your own benefit, plus plenty of advance warning so you can hide somewhere and we can't deport you at the end of the five years. The turnout clogged a major thoroughfare.

"They're here for the American Dream,"So are we. Difference is, we're AMERICANS. They're parasitic felons. said Malissa Greer, 29, who joined a crowd estimated by police to be at least 10,000 strong. "God created all of us. He's not a God of the United States, he's a God of the world."So the fuck what, you dumb bitch?

That bill, which has yet to gain Senate approval, would deny state services to adults living in the U.S. illegally and impose a 5 percent surcharge on wire transfers from illegal immigrants. Instead of charging them little fees for things, why not just, I don't know, THROW THEM OUT OF THE FUCKING COUNTRY?!?!

Supporters say the Georgia measure is vital to homeland security and frees up limited state services for people legally entitled to them. Opponents say it unfairly targets workers meeting the demands of some of the state's largest industries.

About 200 converged on the steps of the Georgia Capitol, some wrapped in Mexican flags and holding signs reading: "Don't panic, we're Hispanic" and "We have a dream, too." If I got a bunch of people rallied together, went down to Mexico City (by illegally crossing the border) and gathered around the capital building demanding driver's licenses, welfare, housing, and employment without becoming Mexican citizens, paying taxes, etc., just how well do you think that would go over?

Jennifer Garcia worried what would the proposal would do to her family. She said her husband is an illegal Mexican immigrant.

"If they send him back to Mexico, who's going to take care of them and me?" Garcia said of herself and her four children. "This is the United States. We need to come together and be a whole."
He could, I dunno, ENTER THE FUCKING COUNTRY LEGALLY AND APPLY FOR CITIZENSHIP.

I fucking HATE illegals and the dumbass bastards who support them. I'm going to become a Mexican citizen, get a tan, and then illegally re-enter the US so I can get away with committing numerous felonies and misdemeanors while living off the hard work of those who belong here legally.

What a fucked up "country" we have. It would seem the rich of the US and the rich Mexicans have agreed to turn this country into another corrupt Mexico-style oligarchy. Both the Dems and the Republicans win and only the soon to be gone middle class (and democracy with it) has to go.
