Pro-Amnesty Group Now Calling for Civil Disobedience Beginning December 20th
Familia Latina Unida ^ | December 18, 2010

Posted on 12/18/2010 10:17:12 AM PST by La Lydia

Due to the Dream Act failing in the sentate, Familia Latina Unida sent out this message: We must respond immediately to the failure of the Senate and the Congress to act. We must let the President know that we will not accept the continuation of injustice under what all agree is a broken law. Familia Latina Unida calls for coordinated actions of civil disobedience at Homeland Security offices across the nation beginning on December 20. “We want a Christmas without fear, a Christmas in which children celebrating the Holy Family are not in fear that armed men will come to their homes to take away their own family.”

The failure of President Obama and the Democratically controlled House and Senate to pass legislation to fix our broken immigration system has left us all with one objective: a moratorium on deportations and separation of families until legislation still pending in the house and senate is finally acted on. We salute Congressman Gutierrez for his leadership in passing the Dream Act through the House, but we recognize that for nearly ten years the Democratic Leadership has been playing with us – saying they were committed to comprehensive immigration reform, which included the dream act, but doing absolutely noting to move it forward....

Every day, 1100 people are deported. Every day, six million children and young people, 80% of whom are U.S. citizens, 20% of whom are dream act eligible, live in fear of having their families and their lives destroyed.... All of this is happening in spite of the fact that we elected a President who committed in no uncertain terms to stop the separation of families....

The Congressman has said that U.S. citizens must be prepared to “step out of their comfort zone” and be willing to fill the jails until the President keeps his promise and stops the deportations....

`The Movement for the Moratorium has begun! Every Monday in Chicago pastors, elected officials, family members of those facing deportations and youth leaders have blocked the doors of the Homeland Security Headquarters in Chicago and organized mass arrests. Let the nation hear us on December 20th. We will not be silent...

Uh oh. Luis Gutierrez calling for illegal actions. They picked up on the "broken law" meme and are running with it. The law is broken all right, by these people. In reality, what is broken is our government's commitment to enforcing the law. I love how, at one point, they accused the DEMS of not acting in good faith!

Well, there's the problem right there.

We should be deporting ten times that.

Illegals performing civil disobedience should immediately be deported. Citizens who do the same need to be jailed.

This is a call for illegals to “break a few heads”

of the United States of America.

Hmmmm, there once was a word for that.

There is no “broken law”, there is just an “unenforced law”. Until our laws are enforced, nothing else matters. It’s amazing that these people feel that because they broke our countries laws, it’s our fault.

I hope they do this. They will remind Americans (of all colors and creeds) what they are all about. Just like when they marched with Mexican flags in 2006 and took over our cities. They are thugs and criminals, and they act like it when they don’t get their way.

Gosh, you raise a good question. At every Tea Party event I’ve attended, including September 12th in DC, towards the end, we all take out our trash bags and look for trash to pick up. Maybe we wouldn’t bring our trash bags?

America is getting a bit tired of this BS.
In a rolling economy, the average American has an abundance of sympathy, however, since our economy and heritage have come under fire from racist, America hating Marxists, I would advise them to tread lightly for fear of waking a sleeping giant....

Deporting 10 x 1100 a day probably wouldn’t even net out to a reduction of illegals here.

And for the illegals and their supporters, bring on your “civil disobedience”. I want to see where it gets you. Do it, I dare you. I dream it would be your last act on United States soil.

These are the same people that Liberals think deserve our compassion.

Illegal immigration left unchecked is like ignoring a cancerous tumor. It keeps feeding off the host until the host dies.

When you stop feeding the Beast, it turns on you.

Of course it is SEDITION, and only conservatives under the current regime can be charged with it. So here is a reminder to me and you not to engage in it.

As for the wetbacks... it’s OK... go right ahead. Nothing will happen to you, the current “legal authority” thinks what you are doing is just fine.

In law, sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that is deemed by the legal authority to tend toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition.

Can’t we just let them stand in streets...alone, as long as they want AND JUST IGNORE THEM, PERIOD. Of course, if their type of civil disobedience means destroying property, or people, with anarchy...just lock them up, and ignore them.

Can somebody here please explain to me what we are going to do once the illegals start resorting to terrorism?

Does anybody remember the illegal mobs way back in 2006?

Hundreds of thousands of illegals in every major city in the US could do major damage to us.

And guess who we have as president?

The most traitorous bastard this country has ever seen.

He’ll line up and shoot Americans before deporting any illegal terrorist.

The one thing that pisses me off about conservatives more than anything else is this obsession with threats abroad when we have been invaded by millions, millions who refuse to leave, millions who could do unprecedented damage to this country, damage a million times worse than Pearl Harbor and 9/11 combined.

Our country is under threat of black mail right now by illegals and Luis Guittierez, a member of congress, is leading the charge against his own country.

In any other time or place, this would be treason.

It ain’t about civil rights. Civil rights was for American citizens, and not about giving foreign criminals the right to do whatever they want in the United States without consequences.

Imagine that — illegals committing illegal acts.

They’ve been so “civil” about it — We can expect them to remain “civil?”

My advice to them — tread lightly. We’re fed up. When enough is enough, the crap will end — and you WON’T want to be on the wrong end of it...

I'm sure I'm one of many who won't to go to jail that easily; however, if the illegal criminals insist, I'm quite willing to go for defending my family and my country.

To the delusional illegals:

If I were you, bastards, I would stop pushing Americans to the brink. The gentle giant is quite awake. If you know how to read, learn some American history that documents an over-compensation by the vicious giant when forced to fight for justice.

If you start stoking the fire, it’ll turn to an inferno that will consume you. Try to depart in peace while you still have it!

The only people separating families are the adults who took their children into a nation where they were not legal citizens. These families are perfectly free to be united in the nation where they are legal citizens.

They have a point. Let’s institute Mexican laws against ILLEGALS and go from there. Surely there would be no arguments from ILLEGALS then?

“Ask not for Justice, for you, too, will be Judged.”

Illegals need to go home. Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Canada, China, Vietnam, where ever!

I do not blame people for wanting a better life for themselves and their families, but breaking the laws of the country to want to work in is NOT a good start.

If they were to self-deport, I'd be happy to have a way for them to apply to return legally, and I'd be willing to sponsor the parents of some of the kids I've worked with myself. Otherwise, go back home and fix their s***hole country themselves.

Nope, it’s just WE WANT this and WE WANT that and if we don’t get them, and free, we are going to pout and carry on.

Go back to Mexico if you don’t like the LEGAL process.

Many more of US need to become poll watchers in 2012.
Illegals MUST be stopped from voting.

All illegals, no matter where they originate, must be deported, NO exceptions.
The best way to do that is probably to make their continued stay here too uncomfortable for them to remain.

This may not be “Fair” to a few who were brought here without a choice.
Allowing them and their parents to be rewarded with citizenship would be grossly unfair to ALL legitimate Americans.

As to the younger illegals, under 12, give the parent(s) a choice.
They take their kids with them or put them up for adoption.
They are NOT citizens.
I would prefer they take them with them, I’m pretty certain the U.S. adoption programs are already overwhelmed.

Having spent several years in the U.S. these illegals already have a form of education that should allow them to be VERY successful back where they belong.
Unless they just abandon their experience with honesty, ethics, not accepting bribery as a norm, cleanliness, etc. at the border.

I would give them a choice, deport voluntarily and they may take a set amount of their stolen property with them, up to say $20,000.
But if we have to deport them, they leave with NOTHING but the cloths they are wearing.

I would announce a short deadline, no more than sixty days.

After the sixty days all Illegals property to be seized and forfeited along the same lines as drug crime property.
All the more appropriate as it will often be drug crime property.

This would help the state and local budgets in several ways, reduced expense in supporting illegals, and revenue from selling the seized property.

The other thing that must be done is that henceforth any illegals caught do not get a “Hearing”, or released pending legal maneuvers.
They just get incarcerated immediately and bounced out of OUR country ASAP.

Just to be clear, I want this applied to ALL of them, no matter where they originate, and yes, that DOES include Cuba!

So long as we make exceptions we open ourselves to charges of favoritism or racism, no problem, do not make any exceptions.
