Small Riot Breaks Out at Immigration Protest
Updated: Friday, 23 Apr 2010, 7:16 PM MDT Published : Friday, 23 Apr 2010, 4:21 PM MDT
The fight over Senate Bill 1070 took to the streets of downtown Phoenix, as riot Police were called to the Capitol to control an unruly group of protesters.
Witnesses say a group protesting against SB1070 began to fight with a man who was for the controversial immigration bill.
Police tried escorting that man away from the scene, fearing for his safety, when they too came under attack by people throwing items, including water bottles.
A young man was arrested during that melee.
Things calmed down moments later, but riot Police remained at the capital to maintain some sort of order.
Earlier in the day, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB1070 into law,.

Video at link above...
This is a second video from YouTube...that clearly show the cops being attacked.
Watch this video
The illegals are rioting. Good time to arrest them all, and “check their immigration status”.
Those Tea Party people, I tell ya! They are so violent... oh wait!
Violence from the left? That’s just First Amendment free speech!! Democracy at work. MSM doesn’t need to report that.
This protest sure seemed racist to me. I saw no diversity.
First to be sent home?
Notice all the cameras are focused on the lone supporter of the bill being whisked to safety and ignoring the actual news story of the “protesters” acting like Nazis following a Jew in 1938.
It appeared to by about 2000 against 1.
Arrest them all!
I KNOW..seriously, when I saw the protesters on Fox News I thought to myself “Perfect timing, the illegals are out, now arrest them and throw their asses back in Mexico”
There are two videos here.
One link at the top of the thread, and this one from YouTube
Methinks it would be a long sentence in a stanky prison, if they survived the beatdown.
“license and registration”
They’d kill them.
Holy Guacamole, Batman!
That’s dang close to a riot by the illegals and their supporters.
I am sure Geraldo will condemn this violence and paint illegal immigrant protesters as old angry brown men.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
I can guarandamntee you they would not be aiming pepper spray at you and hauling off the Mexican citizens.
Give him a break, Theo. He is just trying to be a little different, and I think that is fine.
Just what I said when the news of the protest came on this evening. Round them up and send them back to Mexiko.(i know)
The illegals are rioting. Good time to SHOOT them all, and check their immigration status.
There, fixed it for you.
You must live in California or New Mexico because AZ has been losing plenty of illegals.
But..but... They couldn’t have been rioting and attacking police... These illegal immigrants are sooo harmless! ;-/ We’re supposed to throw open our borders, our arms, our homes... To what? Or who? These people who riot and promote violence more than any other group with the exception of Muslims? Actually, I think the so-called supporters of immigration reform are probably worse than the illegal immigrants themselves.
Violence at today’s protest...any surprise?
Yeah. That it took so long to happen...
I think the 240B has replaced the M-60, but that was a fine weapon!
Sure it is...
After they go home they can apply to LEGALLY immigrate to the US, then they can work, own property, drive cars etc. LEGALLY.
I'm going to have to agree disagree with you and agree with the poster that said the little box around the comment should NOT be used.
If everyone starts doing it, it is going to be a mess on this board. Remember when word processors came out and people figured out all the things they could do with the text? Do you want FR to start looking like this?
I Agree Wholeheartedly. FreeRepublic discussion BOARDS should never end up Looking like this. It is the content of the message that is the discussion, not how pretty some1 thinks they can make their text look.
Before Mexico became as dangerous as it is lately, that is exactly what was happening. People were going home when the economy tanked and work dried up. But...
Now there are kidnappings going on down there. Anyone that was in the U.S. and banked some money has a high likleyhood of being held for ransom.
Families that get money sent to them from the U.S. are having a family member kidnapped and then a message is sent to the relative living in the U.S. to send payment.
It is going to take much more incentive than whay you point out for them to want to go back home.
You also forget one significant point - many people do. They are not just the employees. They are the employers. The days of Mexicans coming here and taking meanial jobs are long gone. They are you pool repair and supply company, the company you purchased your satellite service from, the guy that sold you your furniture, that owns the company that supplies pallets to you company...you name it.
That is a long, many year process.
Attrition through enforcement. But even that won’t work until our borders are EFFECTIVELY secured.
The whole defeatist ‘round ‘em up’ argument originated by the pro-amnesty crowd.
If our current immigration laws are enforced, no jobs, no medical care, no Federal or State benefits...along with no banking privileges, no mortgages or auto loans...they’ll have NO CHOICE but to leave. Those who refuse should be rounded up, placed in camps along the border, forced to build a double fence, and THEN deported.
Ooh my eyes.
But saying this as politely as I can, it is delusional to think that what you suggest (rounded up, placed in camps along the border, forced to build a double fence, and THEN deported) is going to happen. It feels good to say it but it is an impossibility.
The Republicans and Democrats in power over the last four decades have created an impossible mess. You can not wish back time as if the mess never happened.
I just read your “about” page. You wanna know something?
YOU HAD A VERY SPECIAL FATHER.............
Wouldn’t it be great if every post on FR was done like that? Not!
Wonder when NBC, SEE-BS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN will do their 14 weeks of coverage of the racist Mexican illegals?
Attrition through enforcement will work if we elect a POTUS who will enforce our current immigration laws and effectively secure the border. As far as camps for those who refuse to leave and building the fence...piece of cake for Sheriff Joe!
Jinx, I don’t think that water bottle throwing (shown in the video) was anywhere near the riots that are coming............
I’m bolted and locked and loaded.
It’s Arizona Night on Free Republic. The last state in the continental US to be brought into the union, is taking drawn swords and rushing the battle lines, first met. Free cactus coolers for all in a celebratory toast. We’ve got them on the run, my fellow Americans, and they are trashing the place on the way out. Typical.
That is a long, many year process.
Too damn bad. Millions of people have done just that and many more are doing so right now. Those immigrants are welcome; illegals are not.
Hear their “student activist” speaking about this. He as a big BUT. He’s not excusing their behavior (rioting, hitting officers with bottles and rocks) BUT this “WHITE GUY” wear a T that said, ‘I can go where I want because I can’. And he walked in front of “Mexicans”. what did he expect?
