Just to clarify, I used the [sic] stuff to differentiate between the spelling errors in the qoutes and the spelling errors that are mine, (since I have a tendency to type too fast and hit reply too quickly.)
The purpose of raising these issues amongst the local council members is to polarize the dissent and gain media attention. I am aware that without employment for illegal aliens we would not have an immigration problem. If we cannot induce our politicians to remove the golden cookie programs then we must shame businesses that employ these lawbreakers.
How about something a little better targeted? Focus on the citizens we have now who are out of work, point out the displacement effect of cheap illegal labor. "Support American Workers" or some such type of campaign...? If you have to go to city hall or wherever to gain media attention, bringing that message is going to be a more effective "spin".
Where your method of "angry mob at City Hall complaining of illegal immigrants" will work is where it's more a crime issue, such as urban areas.
People should bring up LOCAL ISSUES, not national issues.
