Reports from the “Immigration Surge” Protests

Reports from the “Immigration Surge” Protests

Reports are beginning to surface from the 300-plus citizen-organized protests on July 18-19 focused on deep concerns about the immigration surge of supposed “refugees” swamping our border control resources, under the banner of the “National Days of Protest against Immigration Reform Amnesty & the Illegal Immigration Surge”.

With a coalition of more than 50 groups and organizations of various sizes, protests against illegal immigration and the Obama inspired surge of illegals at America’s borders took place in more than 300 locations. The protests were highly visible and some were small with a handful of people on overpasses with others being larger with hundreds of people.

The following report by J.D. Gallop in Florida Today is representative of many of the small-scale, but enthusiastically received, events.

Nearly a week after a social service agency announced it needs foster homes for Central American migrant children seeking asylum in the United States, protesters gathered alongside roadways near the government center to draw attention to the immigration crisis.

“We got to stop the invasion of illegals and send them home now,” said Connie Smith, one of the organizers of a rally that drew about 30 people to the four-way stop near the Brevard County Government Complex in Viera.

..The protesters – including one woman standing next to an upside down American flag she purchased at a yard sale – braved the noon day sun, holding up homemade signs reading “Path to Destruction” and “Send Them Home” as motorists honked horns and waved in support.

A Newscaller.com video from the Hesperia California event also offers a glimpse as to the style of these protests:

The speaker in that video is hard to hear through all the honks of support being given, and perhaps that is one of the key elements of the nationwide events. Though small, the high-visibility location ensured that the participating citizens got their message across to a wide spectrum of people. As Californian Michael Bennett noted during the Carlsbad overpass demonstration, “We may have a small number here, but the honks and thumbs-up that we are seeing demonstrate that Americans are taking this issue seriously and are very unhappy with how this immigration-surge disaster is being handled.”

Of course, what is a protest without a counter-protest? Free Republic member “Humblegunner” offers these details on the protest in Houston, TX:

Today at the Mexican Consulate just south of downtown Houston a protest against the illegal alien border surge was staged by concerned patriots.

Apparently the word got out to the opposition forces. There were 25 to 30 illegals and associated supporters there as well. Our side numbered from 40 to 50 while I was on site. We were staged on opposite sides of the street.

A sample of the free exchange of ideas, clearly demonstrating the power of the First Amendment, is shown in this video:

Via the National Days Of Protest Against Immigration Reform Amnesty & The Illegal Immigration Surge Facebook site comes these items describing other protests:

  • Michelle Prescott in Conroe, TX: “We had about 125patriots show up! We had several media outlets both TV and print come out to take photos and do interviews.  We had other groups join us as well… Montgomery County Tea Party, Texas Patriot PAC, Texan Nationalist Movement and ALIPAC. It was an amazing day!”

  • Lucy Ingalls in San Diego, CA (who describes an example of the famed liberal tolerance): “I went to the illegal immigration protest at the Mexican consulate downtown San Diego. It was a blast! Met some really great Patriots, got the finger many times, a liberal shoved one of our ladies, her husband took care of that, the consulate security were itchin to arrest people (Patriots of course), but the police were very nice. They asked a lot of questions, of course we did not answer them. We’re going to another tomorrow morning in San Diego. All I took was my American flag, it was great!”
  • Craig Roberts from Lansing, MI: Roberts lets his pictures do the talking, showing a good sized crowd.

LI #12 Protest5

  • Robin Nottin in Lexington, KY: “Lexington, Kentucky had a great turnout in the rain. Lots of horn honking, “thumbs up” and waves.”

LI #12 Protest4

  • Kelli Cook, Alabama: “280 in Alabama!”

LI #12 Protest 1

“It is clear that the surge of illegal immigrants on our borders coming for the immigration reform amnesty promised by Obama and some Republicans has brought a great change in public views on this issue,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC (Americans for Legal Immigration PAC).

yes it’s small but a beginning . You best believe the Latinos are well organized when ever they march or protest . Well we don’t have La Raza and Mexican Representatives calling themselves American sitting on the hill . Fact is on the Hill we have nothing to organize with . This is truly ‘Green Roots’ and it will build in time . Just think of all the horns blowing . They are supporters also. Tip of the Hat to all of ya and remember ‘Don’t compare Apple & Oranges.’ They have ‘ Professional Organizers.’ Well paid by us also !

Oh, Leslie, you are so gullible!

None of that is real. It never happened.

I know this because there wasn’t a word about it on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, etc.

So it never happened… Silly xenophobe. 😉

Is there an explanation of where these supposedly spontaneous, unorganized, grass-roots demonstrators got the matching signs?

    I understand this will gall you like stinging nettles in your panties, troll, but…

    grass roots people ARE organizing. See TEA Party.

    “Spontaneous” is in the eye of the beholder.

    “Matching sign”…see webs, inter.

    My favorite sign: “My family did it legally. Anyone can.”

    Hope that helps with your astounding ignorance.

    I’ll give you a hint. They got them from the FedEx Kinko printers, asshat.

Forget the national guard, with around one million people illegally entering annually, post (i.e. permanent bases) the army on the southern border. And unless there is an official recognition of failed states, and descriptions (by aliens, advocates, and politicians) of those conditions, then the illegal aliens are not refugees. They are merely invaders of our nation, states, and communities; and the latter are aiding and abetting their intrusion.

It is doubtful that the main stream of leftist media will write any headlines about the attack on the agents of the US government who found themselves in a hopeless situation on the border; the newspaper reporters prefer not to ignite any more interest in the overrun border region and instead keep readers pinned to the downing of the Malaysian passenger jet in the Ukraine. Don’t be sidetracked from the present danger to our national security and the massive costs to extend welfare to the continuous stream of illegal foreigners.

Last Friday night the U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the RINCON PENINSULA, Texas were forced to take cover when high-caliber armament was fired at them from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande. Border Patrol sources that were confirmed by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas account, said the shots may have been fired by heavy .50-caliber weapons.

“They don’t have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to back away when the rounds were ricocheting around them,” said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a physical look at the border condition, adding “When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across. We have no idea what or how many or who came across with the other illegal immigrants.”

We are in a crisis of massive proportions. In the past recent weeks we have been awash in dread and uneasiness, even rage, as this President has opened the floodgates to tens and thousand illegal children from Central America. Already something like 56,000 illegal unaccompanied children has entered our country with more predictable next year. Nearly one thousand a week cross our borders illegally. As Americans we will bear the burden of the outrageous cost as illegal aliens’ game the system, spurred on by many pregnant females.

This will break the back of America and cause her to collapse; seemingly to rent our system of Law and Order apart by the left. This latest emergency has been weighing heavily on the minds of Americans. We have thought about it, discussed it at the dinner table and in conversations with friends. If there is one resounding cry it is: “What can we do?”

There is a powerful solution that simply requires that you raise your voice and demand action:

Send a Pink Slip to that pro-illegal immigration Congress. It is the utmost urgency that we send demanding not requesting they put Obama on notice and begin impeachment proceedings. Not a relatively harmless court case to sue him, BUT IMPEACHMENT.

It is critical you send your personal PINK SLIP message to Congress today. There are things happening right now that demand action. They are frightening to the very core. According to the TEA PARTY.ORG many Americans are not aware that the Obama administration is working to secretly enact a new rule that would force cities and towns into housing illegal aliens. If this new regulation passes and Obama gets his way, the Department of Housing and Urban Development could simply waltz into any city or town and rezone an entire area claiming it doesn’t have enough affordable housing for those that fall under “protected status.”

As Patriots, WE understand this would be entirely illegal. The US Constitution grants no power to the federal government over local city planning or zoning. But like Obama and his administration did with Common Core, they plan to use the power of the almighty dollar—and a hidden agenda—to enforce it. “Either accepts it or you don’t get the grant money.”

And who is the chief beneficiary of this regulation? We must not be fooled for one minute. This is not about Fair Housing. It’s about a government power grab. His government goons want to force amnesty on us and they will do anything to do so.

Right now tens of thousands of illegal children are being covertly whisked into small towns and cities across the country. Yet our government will not disclose where these children are or even WHO they are.

Obama promised to return them to Central America, but this is simply a pack of more lies.

Reliable sources and news reports show these children are being taken too many states, including Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Obama’s puppets are hiding these children, making them so hard to find and so scattered across the US that it becomes extremely difficult to send them back, let alone find them. This is hardly “transparency.”

Obama will lie to the American public as long as possible. Once we learn the truth, it’s too late. We have hit the point of no return. Your town or city could be the next target for “operation illegal dump.” It means you’re already hurting communities will be forced to pay for foreign people who have no right to be here. Because Obama couldn’t get a regressed Senate Immigration Reform passed—or AMNESTY, he bypassed the Congress and rapped on Central American doors—come here and we will make a welfare place for you? God! As if we didn’t have enough “hangers-on” who bled the entitlement system. FREELOADERS—in our own society who refuse to do a job—not the jobless millions who want to contribute. WE ARE ALREADY PAYING FOR MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS SQUATTING HERE, ESPECIALLY MORE SO UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION.

Although the administration desperately tried to cover it up we now know that these illegal aliens are riddled with diseases, infections and sickness. They are members of gangs and the media describing them as mostly small kids is a downright lie. A larger majority are teenagers between the ages of 14 to 17. Many are lying about their real age. We know next to nothing about them. They could have been groomed as young terrorists for all we know. Then the foreign females that are well informed that once here they can have their baby free of charge; so that a women’s baby gains instant citizenship, originally interpreted for slaves after the Civil war—not illegal aliens? So then the mother can stay with the child and later her many offspring can petition for other family members. It is a great con-game that taxpayers cover the costs.

Obama repeatedly ignores the Rule of Law, blatantly disregards our immigration laws and flat-out refuses to enforce them. When it comes to our borders he refuses to protect them. He is creating a crisis so vast, so dangerous it will overwhelm the system.

It is as if there is a propaganda campaign going on in Central America where Obama is sending a message: Come to America. Get free health care, education, housing and NOW even legal representation.

In a Reuters news report recently, a quote from Jorge Ramon Hernandez, a representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, saying as long as immigration reform is not approved, “the exodus of children to the United States will continue.”

Good people of the United States of America. We are being bullied, blackmailed and threatened by our own president as well as other countries trying to force us to grant amnesty. It is a travesty of epic proportions.

Since when did we allow other countries to hold such power over us? Since Obama took office. His actions are more than just small transgressions. They are flagrant and willful acts of tyranny, terrorism and crimes against the United States of America.

We must stand up to it and fight!

This President owns this crisis. He created it by bending the immigration rules, instituting the Dream Act and allowing our borders to remain unsecured. He wants immigration reform—amnesty for illegals—and he will do anything to get it, including jeopardize our national security.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) is pushing to bypass Obama and instead, have Congress do what it did to the IRS: pull the funding on federal agencies that are not doing their jobs and not enforcing strict controls on illegals.

Gosar is suggesting that Congress bypass Obama and work directly with the state governors to restore security. They can do that but Congress has to have the power of the people, the power of true Patriots behind them.

We must Block amnesty for illegal aliens, which is entirely up to us—grassroots America—the little helpless citizens. We need you. Check these site that has the phone Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at: http://www.contactingthecongress/ to demand an end to illegal immigration. You can also get alternative news about issues at One-America-News and TeaParty.org

I was at the Tamarack overpass over Interstate 5 in Carlsbad California on Saturday. It was great. It was even greater that there were simultaneous events not just in San Diego but all over the country.

This is just the beginning. This is your chance to fight back. There are more of these coming. If you want to find out where just google ‘amnesty demonstrations planned’ or something like that, google will find them for you. The times, dates, and places are available. Remember our guys are risking their lives thousands of miles away, the least we can do is attend a rally.

Remember these words from Winston Churchill:

““Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
