Posted on 04/21/2011 10:13:13 AM PDT by La Lydia
Juan Jose Gutierrez, the president of an immigration activist group called Vamos Unidos, predicts that hundreds of thousands of people will march in Los Angeles on May Day, demanding legalization for illegal immigrants. In an appearance Sunday on the Univision program "Al Punto", Gutierrez said that legalization is the only way out of the current policy stalemate. Expressing alarm that federal authorities have deported more than 800,000 illegal immigrants during the Obama administration, he warned that unless Congress passes immigration reform, mounting frustrations with enforcement of immigration laws could lead to violence. Here is an excerpt from his comments:
What is the country going to do? When are they going to start arresting not 800,000 all of us? When are they going to declare war on us? When will there be a civil war in this country? Is that what the country wants? Is that what the president wants? Is that what the leaders in Congress want? That there be conflicts like we had in the sixties, where the violence explodes? Because our people it has to be said clearly can't take any more.
In an apparent reference to total number of illegal immigrants arrested and removed from the country, through deportations carried out by ICE and "voluntary returns" carried out by the Border Patrol, Gutierrez then said:
We're talking about more than a million people that they have been deporting every year for more than 25 years. This doesn't happen anyplace in the world. We need to be grateful that it hasn't happened to more people here, taking into account what has happened in France with the immigrants, in Spain and in other countries where there has been real violence. And here there is still time to (solve the problem) civically.
open borders ping
LA is little Mexico so nothing will happen to these punks while they destroy property.
“su casa es mi casa”
It would not be a civil war. It would be a war of aggression by illegal invaders. And it would go poorly for the invaders...
My, how arrogant these people get when their initial lawlessness is ignored.
Is Juan Jose Gutierrez an illegal immigrant?
In many areas of Socal we are not outnumbered by illegals and their kin. It might get ugggly.
Really? I have an idea - then go the hell home!!
Why don’t they “vamos unidos” a Mexico - with their “demands”?
At one time I would have died laughing by comments like this by a Mexican. Today Americans are so sick his threats of “Civil War”(actually a hostile invasion by a foreign people)are to be taken seriously. By the way if any actual shooting occurs we will lose.
LOL. Bring it. Mexico attacked Texas and lost. Mexico attacked the USA and lost. I doubt there would be a problem doing it again...
“This doesn’t happen anyplace in the world.”
That’s not quite right Juan.
Even your own country, which is Mexico, not only doesn’t let them in if caught, but DEPORTS them too.
“All your casas belong to us”
Who cares! Either way, he can be hanged.
Well, we always hear how it is the 'illegals' that are the problem. So he must be an illegal.
Because no other country in the world alows themselves to be invaded the way we have.
As for "Civil War", you have to be a citizen to participate. If you aren't it is an act of foreign aggression on our soil.
Anyone want to bet if ICE will be on hand and still won’t be able to find an illegal?
Today is San Jacinto Day!!! The day great-grandpappy captured Santa Anna and brought him to Sam Houston. Slap down!
