Protests of “immigration surges” slated for July 18-19
Trying to deal with a domestic disaster
While eyes are turned to Gaza and the Ukraine today, I wanted to offer some information about attempts to deal with a man-caused disaster on our own soil.
Citizens across the country are organizing a series of protests addressing the immigration surge of supposed “refugees” swamping our border control resources.
Over 250 events are being organized over the next new days, which include 41 locations in California, 34 in Texas, and 20 in Florida.
The purpose of the protest is to raise awareness of the impacts of illegal immigration and to show opposition to the administration’s handling of the recent border surge of illegal alien youth. The events will take place in various cities around the country on the July 18th and 19th.
Deemed the “National Days of Protest against Immigration Reform Amnesty & the Illegal Immigration Surge,” the more than 300 protests currently scheduled nationwide will target state capitals and the offices of policy makers in support of amnesty programs and increasing levels of legal immigration. Political activist Paul Arnold is the organizer of this movement, and has received help in launching these protests from numerous grassroots organizations across the country.
In my home state, the 41 events include many small cities and Central Valley communities impacted by the surge directly.
The ones in the Golden State’s bigger locales are are follows:
- San Diego, 1549 India St San Diego, CA 92101 b/t W Beech St & W Cedar St in Little Italy, Friday, July 18 10:00am-1:00pm . This protest is at the Mexican Consulate

While not a “Tea Party event”, the new networks created by Americans are now being used to ensure that the word of these protests gets out. Dawn Wildman, a California state Tea Party coordinator and founder of the SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition, explains the goals:
“We want to make sure that our leaders, representatives, and the press get the whole message,” Wildman explained. “Looking at the press, and comparing it to what people who actually live in the communities are saying, we don’t think it is. And the main piece of that message that is missing is that the small towns and rural communities receiving these immigrants don’t have the resources to handle them. Think of the gang violence and infectious diseases that our communities may potentially experience.”
In fact, the lack of serious media coverage related to reasonable concerns is being reported widely by grassroot observers. One local activist, whose name is really John Hancock, is a Spanish-speaker married to a Mexican. He was ignored when he tried to engage a reporter:
… I thought for sure the reporter from a Spanish-speaking station would love to interview a white protester who is fluent in Spanish. I now realize that I just didn’t fit the narrative that they wanted to tell. I could not be presented as an uneducated, white racist who is protesting the arrival of these children for no other reason than that they are from Latin American countries. I kick myself for being so naïve. …
The impact on the small communities targeted for immigrant relocation is also a key issue. Wildman noted that before the surge, Murrieta was rated as the “second safest city in the nation” by the FBI.
“Using Murrieta as an example, if several hundred immigrants rolled into their small community, and a portion of them were MS-13 or other gang members, how would the small police force be able to cope with this situation? While Murrieta got the buses to turn around, other small towns haven’t. How long before their hospitals are overcome with sick patients and the city budgets are crumbling because they are now paying for services to non-citizens?”
In fact, the governor of one state noted for its small towns is complaining about the influx of immigrants:
In a sign of the far-reaching impact of the U.S. immigration crisis and its political fallout, Nebraska’s governor says 200 children who entered the country illegally were sent to his state this week without warning and that federal officials are refusing to identify them or their locations.
Gov. Dave Heineman, a Republican, said federal officials also wouldn’t answer questions about public school attendance by the children and the potential costs to taxpayers.
Wildman concluded that this is one protest that will cut across party lines. “Americans of all political stripes are angry that the administration is shamefully using children for political purposes, and hurting its citizens while doing so. These protests are just one of the many ways we will be responding.”

Today, those protests are flags and signs. Mark my words, withing the year they will be the same people and the protests will look like B u n d y R a n c h.
Folks, we have a Marxist administration; Marxist’s do not quit until stopped.
We can stop them, we will stop them, I will stop them.
What is the difference between the Israeli invasion of Gaza and the Illegal Immigrant Invasion of the USA?
Eventually, the Israelis will leave.
Except the Israelis are being attacked. It is not even a similar situation. Or are you suggesting we invade Central America to stop the swarm of people coming in? Either way it was an uneducated comment
Upcoming rally at the Massachusetts State House: Saturday July 26, sponsored by Jeff Kuhner, the WRKO talk show host. Jeff didn’t give a time yet, and I can’t find it on wrko.com
Update: Start time is 11:00 AM.
Leslie, it is not a “domestic disaster’ it is an intentional act of civil war by Barak Hussein Obama–Marxist.
Volcanic eruptions are disasters.
Floods are disasters.
Planned Cloward-Piven crisis are not disasters, they are crimes against our Liberty, our God and our Constitution.
You are exactly right. Those illegals did not suddenly all decide at once to move north. This was planned and Obama planned it. He’s paying back his open-border buddies for all the votes and money they got him. He’s also keeping his fund raising schedule going no matter what is happening in the world because he’s paying back his dem buddies too.
Obama is indeed the worst president ever but he pays his debts – at our expense.
Obama brought in Cecilia Munoz, former LaRaza honcho, to serve as WH adviser on immigration in January of 2012. Obama announced DACA in June 2012, UNIVISION Sp. language TV helped spread the word. The DREAM-USA scholarship for illegal aliens went into full swing shortly thereafter.
It took a little while for families to scrounge up the $5000-$8000 to pay off coyotes and buy nice new outfits for the trip. But by fall of 2013, they were banging at the gates expecting their “permisos” and looking forward to a freeeee education for the kiddos, K- Baccalaureate , at my expense and yours.
Stupid gubmint won’t be happy until somebody gets hurt.
I’d say “more hurt” given the statistics about illegals and crime in this country.
“If Just One Prominent Democrat” was seriously harmed by an illegal….wouldn’t it be worth it?
You could march an army of ISIS murderers across the Southern borders and you would not even know it until the slaughter began.
In 50 years it will be said by honest historians that this was the bale that broke the U.S.’s back.
The Shining City That Went Dark will be a bestseller.
Borders are demarcation lines of power. If a government, war lord, king, president, general, etc cannot maintain control of it they fail and fall. Historical examples are innumerable. And any leader (including the schmucks who work for him) who invite invaders in and co-operate with them is doubly damned. Polling indicates that the citizenry understand this, entrenched interests pushing cheap labor have reason to be very afraid (Chamber of Commerce idiot liar now claiming they never wanted amnesty) and Obama is (not) so jokingly telling his open border co-conspirators (LULAC, La Raza, etc) at a recent White House meeting “Are you trying to get me impeached?” Borders are security to a population fundamentally and if a leader(s) can’t (or won’t) provide it citizens will find someone who will. Human nature, which progressives constantly deny, will bite them. No border, no authority, no government.
Just seems like a most opportune time to round up a bunch of people that are in this country illegally and help them to get back to their home countries….
But then, I am engaged in an Act of Dreaming…Hoping for (defined!) Change
Deport them all.
Every damn one of them.
President Eisenhower, where are you?
I like the use of the word “surge”, as this is indeed an Obama Offensive. Team Obama learned something from our successful surge in Iraq, and has adapted it to his War on America. (I know, tldr … just glance at the bold, the rant possessed me 🙂 )
Obama knew that 65,000 or more young illegals would be crossing our border, they were planning for escorts for them back in January. The arrangements must have started earlier.
We also know that 99% are coming because they have been told they can stay, not because of fear of violence in their country. The fear of violence just crossing Mexico should have deterred them, but the powers that be opened a corridor.
Obama “planned the surge” of illegals into this country. Just as he is more flexible with Putin post election, he is accommodating more illegals, more blatantly. His current request for $4B is 99% to distribute and care for the illegals, not remove them. They are caught, given papers to appear, and not just released, but distributed around America. (For ten cents at Kinko’s, a copy of these documents that can be attained by any illegal in the country, as the accepted documents contain no photo ID, not even a watermark).
And Obama acts covertly, deceiving America, refusing to communicate to governors or mayors on his invasion plans. This is coordinated enemy action, that he again covers with a thin veil of lies, like “the video killed our ambassador”, “you can keep your health plan”, “global warming is the biggest threat to America”, and “not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS”.
Obama has not “turned his back on America”. Remember Michelle was NEVER proud of this country. All this is planned enemy action from his loyalty to still flag stomping Bill Ayers, or “God Damn America” Rev. Wright. To Obama, white America is an evil colonialist nation … we have nothing we didn’t steal from the black man, (and he includes what we “stole” from the brown man). His problem with reparations was “they don’t go far enough”.
Obama means to punish smaller town America, just as he wants to use HUD to distribute poorer people into richer neighborhoods, countering “white flight”. Rather than move blacks up, they plot to bring middle America down, with brown La Raza gangs as a powerful tool. Blacks lose again.
This is racist social engineering, by every covert means possible. Team Obama offers $6000/month to care for each of these illegals. That’s triple what a retiree receives in earned social security.
Saturday, 19th…There will be two gatherings down here in Miami, one at Sen. Marco Rubio’s (Gang of 8 infamy) office.
We need more such action.
Otherwise, the lie that “the majority of Americans want immigration reform” will continue. The stealth dumping of illegal aliens into your community and onto your tax roll will continue. The funneling of money through HHS and DHS to vote harvesting , open border constituents, using your tax dollars will continue.
The message should be short and clear.
-Close the border.
-Repatriate ALL new arrivals, UACs AND any illegal family members already here.
-Stop the illegal dumping in communities of sovereign states.
-Four Billion dollars ($4,000,000,000) for Obama’s man caused disaster at the southern border? Tell him and the pantywaists in congress to Go_ Pound_ Sand.
-NOT ONE RED CENT to Obama to be doled out to his political cronies (Immigration attorneys, Resettlement agencies).
The 2008 anti-trafficking law pertaining to UACs is NOT applicable to the majority of these aliens as they are largely here due to illegal smuggling. Smuggling, in which the families (and Obama and LaRaza, and UNIVISION, and immigration lawyers and “resettlement” agencies and central American countries) are complicit with the coyotes, is NOT trafficking in the legal sense. Human smuggling is still illegal, though. Why does this not fall under RICO statutes?
Obama says, “So sue me!” To which I respond, capital idea!
Also, there is verbiage in the 2008 law concerning exceptional circumstances which would certainly seem to apply to the recent man cause disaster at the southern border. That law does not need to be tweaked or twerked by congress. The real problem is that neither they, nor the administration has any will to tame the out of control immigration.
Meanwhile, my FL state reps and governor are shocked, Shocked!!!, to learn that a batch of aliens are to be transported here post haste. Baloney! They started shipping them here back in May, they’ve filled up (~200) 2 shelters already. Here is a good article from CIS.org.
