SOUTH: Day-labor divide Illegal-immigration opponents target
Orange County Register ^ | 5/8/2005 | By PEGGY LOWE

LAGUNA BEACH – An anti-illegal immigration group that wants to shut down day-laborer sites targeted the Laguna Day Workers Center on Saturday, saying the people who hire the workers are breaking federal law.

For the first time at the Laguna Canyon Road site, the protesters attracted a counter-protest from a human-rights network defending the short-term workers.

The two groups, each with about three dozen people, shouted at each other for about four hours across the two-lane highway, turning the blacktop lanes into a great divide on the debate on undocumented workers. Signs on the south side of the road that read "We want our jobs back" competed for drivers' attention with those on the other side that said "Resist racism."

Socialist who, before the men or police arrived took a bull horn and went up to women and yelled right, in their fiace "F-You, F-You, you F-ing racist" even following them. Once the police and a few men showed up, he was on his best behavior. A picture worth a thousand words. Picking up day laborers. Scary thought, how many did NOT get work. Seems like if we need them for jobs, there are too many here already. Seems simple enough, The red banner of Socialism and our protesters. So, what do YOU miss most about socialism? The gulag? the mass starvation? The East German Woman's swim team?

One more note: The lady who tried to run people down with her car, did have a "practice random acts of kindness" bumper sticker on it. (Next to the Kerry bumper sticker)

LOL

Get that state border patrol ballot initiative passed and illegals will leave in droves. The deterrent factor alone will be huge. Only problem is they'll all probably come to NY...

The next expansion of the MMP is to go after employers that hire illegal aliens. I for one cannot wait. Employers will learn that it is no longer worth it to hire an illegal alien that will work for whatever the employer can get away with paying. Documenting, reporting, and prosecuting these employers is next on the list.

I told my son the way to stop this is to revoke the license of any and every employer who knowingly hires an illegal immigrant and hold it in suspension for 6 months; for each one above one add one month plus a $1,000 fine.

I find it revealing that some people who are so afraid that the immigration laws might actually be enforced revert to such violent and vile behavior.
