Well Mr. McCain, your worries about rioting can go both ways...how about real Americans rioting if this bill passes?

That's part of the problem. These politicians really aren't scared of us. They know we are law-abiding and the illegals aren't!

If they’d riot, then do we still have to think of them as hard-working and decent folk who just want to do the gardening and menial labor tasks that Americans won’t do?

Sad thing is that France now has a President who is ten times more balsy on this question than ours. A sad day when that happens.

McCain’s remark is an invitation to riot,disguised as a warning.

Since when does a society stop enforcing it’s laws because the criminals may resort to anarchy?

Won’t kowtowing to illegal aliens who are flaunting our laws,because they may riot,just show other criminals how to escape punishment?

Won’t this cowardice on the part of those we pay to enact and enforce our laws, lead one by one to the forced dismantling of every law on the books?

John McCain Warns Illegal Immigration Enforcement Could Lead to Riots (my emphasis)

Good. Let's get it on while we still outnumber them. We can counter-riot and do the job our government won't do. I believe we are better "equipped" than the illegals to do the job right!

Oct 18th, 2000..Ft. Worth Star Telegram interview. Just one of many quotes from Jose Angel Guiterrez, the activist devil himself.

""Q: What is irredentism [ethnic nationalism], and what evidence do you see that it is happening?

Gutierrez:" The evidence is their display of their Mexicanness. …These folks now are engaged in active political activity in the U.S. which is unprecedented. They are truly binational citizens.

It's not uncommon to see undocumented Mexicans protesting in front of INS in downtown Dallas. ….They have also now gotten dual citizenship. … [The] Chicano generation…only wanted to carve out half of [19th-century Mexico]…. These folks want it all. They want to recreate all of Mexico and join all of Mexico into one. And they are going to do that, even if it's just demographically… They are going to have political sovereignty over the Southwest and many parts of the Midwest. "

"Jose Angel Gutierrez is not a madman. Gutierrez is a man who has dedicated his life to a cause. And he now senses triumph is at hand.

He's been doing this in George W. Bush's Texas, at a university for which Bush had ultimate responsibility."

WTH is Bush thinking???

It will then be time to break out the local posse’s to turn these lawbreakers in.

Once the bill passes, they will have legal standing and full protection of the US Government. Therefore, no law enforcement agency or citizen will be able to touch them under fear of federal prosecution.

Back in the late ‘60’s, in the town I now live in, there were several bus loads of persons from up north, mostly blacks, scheduled to come and “demonstrate” in this city, with the intention to incite rioting as they’d done elsewhere.

Business and shop owners informed the Police Chief and Sheriff if the demonstrators broke so much as one shop window, it’d be met with gunfire from the owners from within the shops. My now deceased father-in-law was one of those armed shop owners. The two law officers informed the instigators, or demonstration coordinators, of the town’s intentions to protect and defend itself and strongly encouraged them to reconsider their choice of cities.

There was no demonstration, it was quietly “rescheduled” to another locale.

Okay let’s see American citizens vs. illegal alien rioters. Yeah, that’s going to be tough for a lot of politicians to choose which side they are on.

They wouldn’t want to hurt their “new” constituents.

In the weeks after Katrina there were several stories about neighborhood defense groups.

One story described a bunch of guys who were armed and serious, and had done things like rigging beer can “alarms” on the front porches on their block. The guys described one daytime encounter which had turned out very badly for the perpatrators.

And there also was the widely circulated photo of another group, showing about 20 middle-class neighborhood guys with their hardware and a huge warning sign telling looters to stay out or else. One would imagine that neighborhood stayed pretty safe.

Law abiding citizens do not riot. McCain and his pansy bunch know that.

It’s really a sad state of the nation when elected “lawmakers” choose above all to defend alien lawbreakers, rioters, and looters over and in spite of the objections of law abiding citizens.

Washington is like the diseased heart of America and politicians are the parasites destroying that heart.

I think he is right, at least about the possibility of riots. I am sure they will riot, especially in the major cities. They have the media eating out of their hands already so I am sure they will put on a impressive show to frighten people. All the same it not a good reason to let them stay.

"Why would illegals riot? They're here to make money. Rioting is the fastest way to putting an end to their chance at any income."

Shirley you jest. They will riot because they will blindly follow the incitements of their leftist activist leaders. They always do, especially if they're uneducated, restless and dissatisfied with their lot in life.

They're not soley here to "make money" although this is what they consciously think. The illegals are pawns. They're are here along with the connivance of various central and south american national leaders to invade and reconfigure this country and to get rid of riff-raff in their own countries.

Rioting will not "put an end" to the illegals (also legals) chances at income. Our authorities will look the other way. When tens of thousands take to the streets to demonstrate or destroy, what are the chances of lost income for more than a handful?

Besides, you're assuming that all rioters have "an income". Odds are that they DON'T have a steady income or are on welfare.....or have a government or social welfare job that allows them to take off from work whenever they want to take to the streets.

We freepers have seen these leeches demonstrating in DC many times.

The biggest danger is the fact that most people don't believe riotous demonstrations can happen any more.....or that the police can control them. They forget history, such as the Democrat convention riot in Chicago. Some heads were broken there, but PC won't allow that any more.

In short, we're at the mercy of rioters led by socialist leaders inciting the invading hordes.

And whose side are our peerless leaders such as Senator Mr. McGoo and the MSM taking?

Don't ask, don't tell.

And if they riot send in the national guard with orders to shoot back if fired upon. They think this is a third world country, then lets treat em the same as they would at home.

You come here illegally, and then threaten more illegal activity if you don’t get your way... screw that.

He is just worried because:

The illegals might actually storm the Capitol and overrun the place and not stop like the folks back in the '60s did...

and because they have been reporting the 30,000,000+ illegals as only 12 million so the citizenry doesn't do the job the illegals might.

John McCain, a United States Senator and Presiential Candidate, stood up publicly and said “In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France. They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.

In essence, this is what Senator McCain really said(paraphrased), “We cannot enforce our laws. We cannot control lawbreakers. Therefore, we should give in to them and let them have what they want so they won’t cause problems for us.”

Simply unbelievable.
