Bus of illegal immigrants heads to Nashville with motto 'No papers, no fear'
Nashville CityPaper ^ | August 14, 2012 | Joey Garrison

A bus full of three-dozen undocumented immigrants — displaying their illegal status for all to see — is set to stop in Nashville on Thursday to raise awareness of immigration politics.

The “UndocuBus,” as organizers call it, will be at a public rally Thursday near the Super Mercado La Reyna #2 at 3761 Nolensville Pike in Nashville from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The group’s motto: “No papers, no fear.”

Advertising for Thursday’s event is virtually nonexistent, but supporters are beginning to spread the word via Facebook. The group includes six undocumented immigrants from Tennessee.

“The Hispanic community in Tennessee is just so ruled by this fear of getting deported, and saying that you’re undocumented is so unheard of where I come from,” said 19-year-old Alejandro Guivar of Knoxville. “I want to wake people up and tell them that if they don’t come out of the shadows and fight for what they deserve, then nobody’s going to give it to them.”

The group — which has garnered attention from a range of national media outlets — began its “Ride for Justice” across the United States in Arizona, home of a controversial so-called crackdown law on illegal immigrants. Its plan is to arrive in Charlotte, N.C. on Sept. 3, in time to stage events as the 2012 Democratic National Convention commences.

Guivar, who has joined the “UndocuBus” cause in Tennessee, is in the process of deportation proceedings via the federal Secure Communities program after being detained last year following a misdemeanor. He spent a month at a detention center in Louisiana, and will learn his fate next spring.

“I don’t want to see any other 18-year-old ever have to go through that,” he said.

These illegals act as though we'll never be able to make them leave.

I think they're making a big mistake.

Karla Chavez, a youth organizer for the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, pointed to President Barack Obama’s recent executive action to allow some illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as children to remain here without the threat of deportation. “But where is the relief for our mothers and fathers?” Who did not see this coming, first the kids and now where is the relief for our mothers and fathers?” Next Obama new policy all mothers and fathers may stay with dreamers

This has got to be an Obama campaign bus. Amnesty, work permits, voter registrations, DNC campaign work opportunities, one stop for everything.

Ever hear of DEPORTATION? That’s what those on this bus ‘deserve’.

Don’t forget how Slick Willie disposed of B-1 Bob Dornan in California. Just swear in thousands of illegals so they can vote. Simple.

The same thing is going to happen this November. The Dreamers are going to vote in massive numbers for their Savior. Obama doesn't intend to leave his fate in the hands of legal US citizen voters.

One of the illegals is probably going to be a US president in the near future — maybe even in 2016.

The illegal aliens have learned the quickest way to make an American piss their pants it to tell the gringo that you’re an illegal alien. Americans have become cowards who are now unwilling to defend their own country against the invaders.

“This has got to be an Obama campaign bus”

Bingo. This is a staged agitprop stunt. Best thing we can do is ignore it.

The smart thing to do would be to get an ICE agent to drive that bus straight to Mexico, and unload them on the other side, but of course with Obama in the White House why should they fear?

Yes. Hussein is the poster boy of illegals. And he occupies the White House.

I wonder if this kid's parole officer knows where he is, and what he's doing out of state...

We need to shine a lot of light on the natural born citizen argument, I feel we are in a greater threat from mixed loyalties (Rubio / anchor babies) now that during the revolutionary war.

I agree. We need to get R/R as well as the Congress involved in the nbc-eligibility issue.

It has come to the point that illegal aliens have less to fer from the federal government than its citizens.

In Holder's Amerika, this mantra of deserve is code for we will take what we want and your justice department protects us in doing it. With four more years to seat these illegal thugs, we the people will end up in a hot war with the la raza criminals! And FR wants barry & criminal enterprise company to have four more years ... figure that one out!

I remember that stretch of Nolensville Road before it was a border town.

I think we should take everyone that is illegal, and make them join the Armed Forces for 10 years. If you will fight for this country, and are willing to give your life for this country then you should be here. If you are not willing to die for the USA, then go home, no one wants you here.
