They lined up at the polls, helping propel President-elect Obama to victory. Now immigrants are calling on him to act quickly and issue an executive order stopping immigration raids and the deportation of illegal immigrants.
"This is the moment. He has to show leadership in a very courageous way," said Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez (D-Brooklyn, Manhattan).
The message was loud and clear at the Harlem church, where elected officials, clergy and immigrants filled the pews.

I think they just admitted illegals voted.
He will attempt to assist them, his “Church” is liberation theology church (code word for Marxism in a religious wrapper).
These are the people who ran the Sanctuary Movement in the 80’s. I saw them up close and personal in NM back then.
They see this as way to insure winning (stealing) elections from here on out.
Exactly. Illegal lined up at polls! Amazing.
Uh, isn’t this against the law?

Profile: Luis Gutierrez
* Democratic Member of Congress
* Member of the radical Progressive Caucus
* Proposed legislation granting amnesty and increased benefits to illegal immigrants
* Was arrested for trespassing at Vieques Naval bombing range where he was protesting with other Leftist radicals
* Pressured President Clinton to free convicted FALN terrorists whose bombs had killed six men
* Refused to support a resolution condemning the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional
Luis Gutierrez is a Democratic Member of Congress who represents the Fourth District of Illinois, a gerrymandered Hispanic-majority district created in 1992 from neighborhoods and suburbs west of Chicago's Loop.
With Chicago Hispanics now fast approaching African-Americans in numbers, this District was designed by Democrats not only to guarantee Latinos a Representative but also to concentrate so many into a single district that they would pose little threat of unseating any black Chicago area Democratic member of Congress. This district is 75 percent Hispanic, and of that majority three of every four Hispanics are Mexican-Americans and one in 10 is Puerto Rican. It is, commented Michael Barone, "one of the most bizarrely-shaped congressional districts in the country."
Luis Gutierrez was born in Chicago in 1953. He graduated from Northeastern Illinois University in 1975, returned to his ancestral home Puerto Rico to teach for two years, then returned to Chicago and worked as a cab driver and social worker. From 1984 to 1986 he was an advisor to the city's first African-American Mayor Harold Washington, and in 1986 won election to one of two new gerrymandered Hispanic-majority seats as Alderman. In 1992, with Daley machine backing for the newly-gerrymandered district seat in Congress, Gutierrez won with 60 percent of the vote and has held the seat since then.
Congressman Gutierrez is a member of the radical Progressive Caucus in the House of Representatives and is one of the leading members of the Hispanic Caucus. The leftwing Americans for Democratic Action rates his voting record 95 percent on the left side of legislation.
Gutierrez proposed legislation granting amnesty and legal status by 2007 to all illegal immigrants who entered the United States prior to February 7, 2001. He has worked to restore Food Stamp and other welfare benefits to illegal aliens. Gutierrez passionately advocates independence for Puerto Rico - a position supported by only 4% of Puerto Ricans in a 1998 referendum. In May 2000, and again a year later, the congressman was arrested with other leftwing protestors trespassing at its Vieques Naval bombing range.
In 1999 Gutierrez worked with fellow Puerto Rico-connected lawmakers and Progressive Caucus members Nydia Velazquez (D.-New York) and Jose Serrano (D.-New York) to pressure Democratic President Bill Clinton to free convicted FALN terrorists whose bombs had killed six men, women and children and had blinded or maimed several police officers. Gutierrez pressed President Clinton to pardon even those FALN killers who refused to express remorse for their terrorist acts.
Like most leftwing members of Congress, Gutierrez voted against the use of force in Iraq but also against allowing oil drilling on a scant 20 acres of the 1.2 million acre Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), thus voting to keep America dependent on Middle Eastern oil.
Rep. Gutierrez was one of 14 Democrats in 2002 who refused to support a resolution condemning the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional and had to be prohibited in public schools and other government forums because it contained the words "under God."
Gutierrez's campaign contributions come mostly from organized labor. In 2004, however, he reported taking a $3,000 contribution from the "State of Illinois," which apparently means that conservative as well as liberal Illinois citizens were making a coerced donation of their state tax money to this partisan leftwing Democratic politician. It also raises constitutional questions about the separation of state and federal governments when a state government directly bankrolls a federal lawmaker.
Law? What law? We have laws? :-(
The President takes an oath to enforce the laws—that is the purpose of the Executive branch. These yahoos want him to issue an executive order to do just the opposite. In the Bizzaro land that American now is, I would not be surprised if he grants their wish. Obama probably knows who his real constituents are.
The last I checked...”undocumented immigrant” still amounts to an illegal alien...
We do, we just can’t find them at the moment.
If all these illegals were to suddenly disappear there would be a huge surplus of jobs in this city, a surplus of apartments and a staggering decrease in Medacaid and welfare.
I agree. I just them back in their own countries. We don’t need to be supporting them especially at a time like this when so many people are having trouble supporting themselves and their families.
Anyone have any doubts that the “magic negro” is going to screw the U.S. in regards to amnesty for illegals?
Look for a whole passel of unwashed uneducated future welfare recipients to be coming across our southern border any day now.
I am sorry. We are about to get Kay Baily Hutchenson invading Texas wanting the Gov spot. No thanks. Then there is our Mayor, Bill White, who wants to be Senator. No thanks.
This is very informative information.
I wish I could hear more about your experience with Obama’s bizarre and hateful religion.
I know he still adores it’s beliefs.
He will show this.
He’s already only attacked Social Security & Medicare knowing it is the source of income for a Majorly high rate of Elder Whites. And it stands to reason he would want to attack that source.
I believe he will continue a ‘Bull’s Eye Target’ approach of policy directly at anything that is predominantly classically ‘White’. In an extremely degrading, depleating way.
I grew up in Los Angeles and move far-far-Nor Cal.
It is getting overrun with illegals trying to squeeze in before the Magic Negro grants ‘Blanket Amnesty’.
If he does, there is an ‘Entitlement’ that many cannot yet qualify for but, WIll, after Amnesty.
It is the crippling SSI & SSP. In California and several other states, the SSI adds another 2nd check that has to come from THAT state. In California, if an illegal has a Sponsor, and that can be their child, they CAN qualify now for SSI & SSP.
If the illegal/s are 65+ they CAN qualify for SSI & SSP.
An individual gets $907 a month in TAX FREE cash.
A couple gets $1,569 a month in TAX FREE cash.
Along with the cash, they also get, Medicare Part ‘D’, MediCaid, Medi-Cal, Food Commodity Vouchers, Endless Food Bank access, Farmer’s Market Food Vouchers, HUD/Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers, it just goes on and on.
All TAX FREE living, not a penny of money ever worked for or paid into the system they drain.
This will bring on an onslaught of NEW SSI & SSP receipients that are not affordable. Because, the newly legalized will be entitled to Bring-In certain family members, legally.
This will add somewhere between 10 to 40 million new SSI & SSP receipients alone, TAX FREE, not paying any taxes.
Then there’s Welfare too. Along with the fringe benefits of the Medical freebies, housing, free college for ALL of the people under the ‘Head of Household’ that also get an SSI & SSP check because the ‘head’ is on SSI & SSP.
Imagine the amount of tax free money they will drain!
It will bring on an Entitlement ‘Emplosion’.
At the same time, the only ‘Entitlement’ Obama is worried about is Elderly White Social Security & Medicare, not the OTHER ‘Entitlements’ that are going to become the most Popular for newly legalized immigrants like SSI/SSP.
It will not work, there is no way he can make it work.
He thinks the illegals are here only to work. WRONG! they ALWAYS go after the Gratis/Free 1st and formost.
It is getting overrun with illegals trying to squeeze in before the Magic Negro grants Blanket Amnesty.
This sounds like a good deal. Can I, as a tax paying citizen decide to quit working and get some of this $$? Can I just stay home and apply? How about a link to a web site so I don’t have to go out.....
Here’s your link to a (while it lasts, cause it’s going to cause’ a CRASH of the Monetary System) Website Link to a Life of Riley!
It says, ‘Things you can do Online’
So, sit away, and fill out them forms.
The difference in filling out the Online Application for SSI & going In Person into the Social Security Office, is they WILL cut you a check the very same day, if your an Illegal over age 65 or an Obese Mommy from across the border!
Sorry about taking so long to reply BILL_C
You CAN Apply Online!
Just go to GOOGLE and TYPE THIS:
Apply for Supplemental Security Income
If your in California, you will recieve, $907 an Individual
A Couple get’s $1,569
Why? Because Stupid California gives an EXTRA check amount called, SSP-State Supplemental Payment of $233 PLUS the Federal amount of $674. So, $674 plus $233 is what?
On top of this you IMMEDIATELY qualify for MediCAL, in California, MediCAID in other States.
You will get your teeth fixed completely FREE. There’s ZERO deductable, premium, and if your over 65, you will ALSO get MediCARE Part “D”.
One of the HUGEST REASONS that California is already BROKE again even after the Bizillions it recieved from the Government after they took it from us tax payers and China is because of the EXTRA SSP check amount.
AND, California pays for all the Illegals and their families.
The BIG problem for the MALE ILLEGALS is they Cannot collect SSI & SSP very easily.
So, for the most part, the Women folk collect AFDC/CalWORKS, TANF, and the MALES work CONSTRUCTION.
The Illegals get OPEN WELCOME Mat opportunity to Apply & Gain ‘Stimulus’ Construction Jobs too!
Obama-Reid & Piglosi made absolutely SURE that ‘E-Verify’ was REMOVED from the final ‘Stimulus’, cause it WAS in the ‘Stimulus’ Bill, but they REMOVED it.
Now, all the Illegal Males are flooding into California by the Van and Truck Load, backpacks on their backs, asking “Where the Gobermen Offecina por de de CONSTRUCTION?”
So, I say, FOCH CHU.
YOu never have had to work a single day in your life for SSI & SSP, just log onto the website and read it for yourself.
If you just cannot find it, I will put up a direct link for you and everyone else to SEE for themselves, that there’s WELFARE for people that don’t qualify for Mommie/Baby Welfare, and are just plain LAZY.
You CAN qualify for SSI/SSP for Depression, Anxiety, Morbid Obesity, Agoraphobia, Dyslexia, all kinds of things to get that free check.
Obama knows this! His “people” live hand to mouth off SSI/SSP, have after the 5 year lifetime Welfare Mommie/Baby limit comes up and it’s time to transition to TANF, they just go into the Social Security Office, pull a tab, Apply & Qualify for Free Legal Aid to go thru to Appeals to Qualify for SSI & SSP for the rest of their lives.
SSI/SSP pays ZERO Taxes.
SSI/SSP is NOT Social Security.
SSI/SSP may own a home of ANY Size or ANY Value, one each.
Does NOT MATTER if the home is worth $750,000 on 100 plus acres of land either.
What does matter, is what you have on and in that property.
It must not be worth more than $2,000 combined per Individual or $3,000 per Couple.
No problem, as they NEVER check up to see if you have luxury furnishings or a Pontoon boat in your driveway, NEVER.
Only if there’s alot of COMPLAINTS about YOU.
Even with that, they rarely check you, the just mail you those Gov & State checks each month for the rest of your life!
