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,.

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.

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.

If it were not for the cops, the Mexicans, illegals, Latinos, Hispanics, Protesters, (take your pick) would have killed the lone white guy..

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”

I wonder what the Mexican police would do to a bunch of Americans if they went down there and hurled a barrage of water bottles at them.

Methinks it would be a long sentence in a stanky prison, if they survived the beatdown.

Watching the news report at the link talking about how "their kids" and the "students" walked out of class to protest the bill...blah blah...reminded me of this:

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.

"Now they will neither go away or many many more will come."

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.

Good find. Thanks for the link. Now a question. Seeing that video, how do people propose to remove 12 million to 20 million people living in this country illegally? It is just not practical to think it can be done.

Sure it can be done. If they can't work, they can't go out and about, they can't own property or drive cars, they will go home all by themselves, we won't have to do a thing.

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.

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.

I will certainly agree with you that the border must be secured as a first step. Should have been done decades ago.

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.

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!

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.

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?
