lawmakers have before them an opportunity to be either "compassionate or cruel."

This is a hard one.

hmmmm....

Cruel. I choose cruel.

Immigrants who want to come to America and become AMERICANS is understandable.

People who simply come here to work and who are NOT interested in becoming Americans should be returned.

"Reconquista" is a declaration of war on America.

As long as those people come here legally, I would agree.

As for reconquista, it's not the only declaration of war IMO. Tens of millions of people flooding into our nation in violation of our laws is also.

On D-Day only 156,000 alied forces entered France to take it back. Today we're talking about 15 to 30 million illegal immigrants on our soil. I consider that a declaration of war.

The Immigration Marches is going to "backfire". American citizens are going to see that our laws have not been inforced and that the USA has been invaded by illegals.
No wonder Americans can not find jobs. They all need to be removed from the USA. Lawlessness should not be rewarded.

Let's see now...

Masked man on street, probably alien in country illegally, violently assaults and injures (badly, sounds like) citizen exercising First Amendment right.

Seems to fit the functional definition of "terrorism" to me.

The reporter said some camera crews caught the assault on video. I wonder if it will show up on TV.

The victim, Robert Gorman of Portland, grabbed his head and dropped to the pavement in a clump after being hit with something heavy that the teen was carrying, possibly in a sock or a bandanna, said Portland Police Sgt. Robin Gauvin.

Quite possibly because they are saying things that are a bit more extreme than what they lead us to believe otherwise.

I read an article around here somewhere that their spanish language papers are calling for much more than the english language translations are saying.

Sounds a bit like what the imams are doing in the ME, moderating their words when they speak english, but much more radical when speaking to their crowd.

Fortunately a lot more people speak spanish in this country, so many more of us will be able to figure out the truth in this situation.

Normal law abiding citizens would love to come out in opposition of the illegals, but they know the radicals may kill them for speaking out. This is a rally organized by the rabid left, and it's designed to force the American people to obey and accept the 12,000,000 illegal socialist voters whether they like it or not. They're using absolute force, and if people try to get in their way, normal Americans could be seriously hurt.

People are watching America being taken over by Mexican invaders, it frightens them, and I believe the result is going to be a backlash and a major move to the right wing for national protection alone. That's if the Republicans do what's right and get the Mexicans out of the country once and for all while they still can. If the Republicans cave, the nation will belong to Mexico.

Illegal immigration has been a ticking time bomb for years. The traitors in DC treated like one big joke. Borders were wide open intentionally so we would 12-20 million that would be difficult to kick out.

BLAME THE HACKS IN DC!

But these immigrants are THE BACKBONE OF AMERICA.

They do those jobs that Americans won't do.

BS! This is all BS. Illegal immigrants are the Backbone of America? It is as if America didn't become a great country or even exist until the illegals came here.

From another article:

"When you promote violence, you get violence," said the Rev. Virginia Maria Rincon, one of the organizers. "Our rally is about promoting a peaceful dialogue."

Translation: He deserved it.

There is no mention of any arrests?

Oh, I see. The counter protestor was violently holding a sign so it's his fault that he was attacked, not the attacker. If this had happened to one of the illegal Democrats, it would be national news for weeks as a hate crime and civil rights violation.

The protests do look like the Mexicans are declaring a civil war against the American citizens.
I really do believe they're frightening normal American citizens so much right now, people must be ringing the White House phones off the hook demanding the borders be sealed and these invaders be sent home as soon as physically possible. No one wants our country invaded by another nation, but that's what's being shown on TV right now as I type, and America is seeing it right before it's eyes. It's a Mexican 9/11.

I too will note how Congress votes on this issue. Will the Congress stand up for the rule of law or cave in to the illegals?

Sadly, I can't predict the answer to that question.

Assault in Maine Ping!

The Arizona State Board is saying it's quiet and orderly here, so far. Lots of American flags, very few Mexican. It remains to be seen, when our march starts, how this plays out.

My spanish is a bit rusty, am not watching tv, would be too maddening. Not sure I'd get more than the gist of what they're saying. There must be plenty of people who can figure out what's really being said though.

If the organizers and speakers think they can pull off something by speaking spanish, well, they just might be surprised at how many Americans know their language pretty well.

They don't want us to know what they are saying. Plus, there's no incentive for them to speak English.

This nation is much closer to a civil war these last two weeks than most people realise. Imagine, if in Arizona for example a "Tancredo" was elected governor and the state capital was stormed, violence, national guard...

We could be a candidate or even a bill away from the start of a civil war all because our government failed to secure the borders after the first amnesty of 1986.

We need a major change in government
