Flyers in Spanish and English, just in case those demanding permanent residency don't know how to demand it in English.

Does anybody know how to get this on the News forum, where it belongs? I must have made a mistake when I posted it.

The left is also pasting up fliers to have an amendment passed to guarantee free affordable housing to all. Socialist claptrap to increase their voter base by bribing the general population. Unfortunately it works, look at europe.

Thanks for the ping. It appears as though this bill (H.R.500) which has 44 co-sponsors, was sent to the Subcommittee on Immigration and Claims on 2/16/2001 and has been on the back burner ever since. With the current climate in this country, their timing couldn't be worse (says she with fingers crossed).

This is all getting too rediculous for words. Perhaps we should switch places; they can all move here, and we'll all move to Mexico. After that, the borders will be slammed shut and we will give them nothing more. I'm getting tired of this attitude that we owe them everything, when they only resent us and appreciate nothing.

I doubt that you posted it in the wrong area - some don't think that this is worthy of discussion.

They "produce", that's for sure: crime, bankrupt health care systems, public schools bloated with no-habla gimme-gimme welfare tickets, gangs, drugs, overcrowded housing, traffic, sprawl, high housing prices, depressed wages, and loads of anchor babies. If these clowns were such a boon to the economy, California would be the wealthiest state on the planet. Instead it's $40 billion in the hole.

Round them up and pitch them the heck out of here as soon as possible.... by the millions.

Ack, I tried adding topics like News/Activism, but apparently you can't do that in General Interest.

I think you should just repost the thing in the News forum, ping us alll, and we'll repeat ourselves over there.

I believe that one of the reasons this was not put in News/Activism is because of the URL identifier. You put "flyer in NYC", where I would have put "dignityandamnesty.org".

Also, if the admins went to the URL to verify the story and saw the 2002 date, this would have been considered "old news". I would search around for something more current. My guess is that there would be something on this at the radical IndyMedia's New York site. I know there are marches planned in 50 cities in hopes to get the "Dream Act" passed.

"And Texas is right behind California,"

And the rest of the U.S. is following. Special concessions are being made everywhere and the trend will only increase from what I see.

In WI the DMV has decided that too many Hispanics are failing their driver's license exams so they are offering special classes in Spanish and allowing them to take the test orally (with prompting, I'm sure) opposed to the written exam. When road signs are all in English is it asking too much for drivers to be able to actually read them?

My daughter's grade school is having a cinco de mayo celebration this year. One day after forgetting to take her lunch to school she told me if she were Mexican she'd get a free lunch. (OK, I'm sure they don't all get free lunches). Art, music, home ec, etc. funding gets cut but God forbid we should cut funding for the bilingual classes and extra ESL teachers. I've heard teachers complaining that there aren't enough ESL teachers (I always tell them English immersion works best).

Thanks, madfly, you could be right about my identifying it as a flyer, but the (erroneous) 2002 date did not appear until you posted the flyer from their website, and the post appeared in the wrong forum immediately. Either my mistake or your original analysis, or this is considered a less-than-newsworthy post.

I have contacted the admin moderator, John Robinson, and finally Jim Robinson. Since the post has still not been moved, I defer to the leadership's decision.

what happened is you put "flyer on streets of NYC" as the source for this post, and when they clicked on the URL there was no "flyer", no typed information about the rally, and no mention of the two contact names you used for "author".

I poked around the dignityandamnesty.org website and could not find anything with the info that you posted. Most of the stuff was dated 2002. The Florida branch is having a video debate on May 1st. The group seems to be a Catholic activist group called YCW.

I should not have posted the copy of the 2002 poster without noting the date.

What has happened, is since there is nothing at the URL to verify the information in your post, this is considered a "heads up" report of what you saw or a "freeper report".
See this from the posting guidelines:

Vanity posts, creations of the poster him or herself, should meet a high standard of quality before one is even considered worthy of posting.
So, from what I can tell, this was considered worthy of posting, but not considered a news article. Sometimes, if you put VANITY in the title, they let things like this run in the regular forum, but there are always posts complaining about too many vanity posts.

It's good that you posted this and very strange that this group hasn't posted this info on their website. Maybe they don't want to get FREEPED!!

This might be a good day to light up the congress critters fax machines. Remind him/her how many laws are being broken. Remind him/her illegals can't "legally" vote for them. If they did so it would be "sedition" or Interfering with the "lawful" elections of a foreign country. Any number of US codes broken by them to obtain the ability to "vote" automatically eliminates their "eligibilty" for citizenship.

It's not a Catholic group either. There is a Catholic group called Dignity, which advocates practicing homosexuals' being accepted to receive the sacraments, but this is not the same group.

Thanks for the ping. We'll check this out.

If all these people are planning to march through cities across the country on May 1, perhaps a heads up should be given to the Immigration Department. It would be a perfect time to round up a bunch of people who are in the country illegally and send them home. No one should be able to DEMAND anything of our country or its citizens when that person or group is breaking the laws of that same country.

It sure is. And here is the correct link.

http://www.dignityandamnesty.org/e_hoy_a.htm
Now we can get this in the main forum.
Possible title:
National Coalition for Dignity and Amensty plans May 1st March on DC

How sly of them to only have the current info on the spanish page. Funny how you never see signs saying "I want to be a citizen" or "I love America".(Note to self: use computer to teach myself Spanish!)

These people could show up with their bags packed at INS headquarters and they still wouldn't be rounded up. The federal government caved on "regular" illegal immigration long ago. Few besides felons and terrorism suspects get deported.

We should Freep this event.

Well, add Texas to the 'in the hole' states. I am so interested to see exactly what they are going to do about Texas. I do know they are taking 275,000 American children off the state healthcare - and I do think many ought not be on there - but they are still giving plenty of healthcare to the illegals. Does that make sense?

They are cutting services (not a fan of welfare - just want fair) to Americans while doing nothing about the illegals.

Maybe it's time to boycott Mexico and Washington - reckon?
