Posted on 07/02/2011 11:24:06 AM PDT by moonshinner_09
Eighteen-year-old Myra Cerecero said she wakes up every morning praying her parents made it home safely."I'm living in a constant state of fear they'll be picked up," said the daughter of illegal immigrants. The American-born Loganville teen was among an estimated 5,000 protesters -- roughly half the crowd organizers had hoped to attract -- who jammed the streets of downtown Atlanta Saturday morning to voice their opposition to House Bill 87, Georgia's crackdown on illegal immigrants.
The recently signed bill penalizes those who use false identification to secure jobs as well as government officials who fail to enforce the state's immigration laws.
Though the law went into effect Friday, protest organizers say the fight to repeal HB 87 is far from over.
"This is the beginning of the end, not the end," said Teodoro Maus, president of the Georgia Latino Alliance on Human Rights (GLAHR).
Protesters invoked President Barack Obama's name repeatedly as they marched past the state Capitol, signifying their support of the federal DREAM Act, which would provide conditional permanent residency to certain illegal immigrants, such as high school graduates, who came to this country as minors.

Keep marching you stupid bastards. Keep showing the American people why we need these laws. Way to go Peach State!
Make a deal with her. She can stay, and be granted legal status, but she has to turn in her parents to ICE.
Sounds like a logical and responsible law to me.
What was the Mexican to US Flag ratio?
We need to deport or imprison ALL illegal aliens, including their anchor babies, seal/secure the border with armed troops a fence and a wall, and have a lethal response to anyone re-entering illegally.
Note:The message Saturday was about more than politics, according to Adelina Nicholls, executive director of the GLAHR.
“We believe they have the right to stay here,” she said. “Our kids have grown up here. We work here. This is our country also.”

....but we are no subject to any of the laws here because we are Mexicans.
If this were a just world, ICE would be traversing these crowds with handcuffs and cage wagons.
Loyalty to the US is actuality more important than legal status...but how does one prove that?
“The recently signed bill penalizes those who use false identification to secure jobs as well as government officials who fail to enforce the state’s immigration laws”
So some state has the audacity to think that anti-forgery laws and borders are supposed to actually mean something?
The world will clearly come to an end if we have the rule of law here in America! If we have the rule of law then America might end up being different than the corrupt places these people left.
If you take lawlessness with you wherever you go, then you’ll never escape the consequences of lawlessness.
“...marchers chanted “Si, se puede,” Spanish for Obama’s 2008 campaign slogan, “Yes we can. “
Is it any wonder that the cesspool of a country that they ran from is as screwed up as it is? We don’t need it. We don’t want it. Get out!!
“If you take lawlessness with you wherever you go, then youll never escape the consequences of lawlessness.”
Why don’t other people get this?
These foreign criminals who are demanding that they are above the laws of the United States destroyed their own countries with the same attitude.
These idiotic Mexicans don’t get that Americans don’t want to import their criminal mentality into the US, because that criminal mentality is what destroyed Mexico.
Foreign nationals who illegally enter the U.S. are not immigrants they are illegal entrants. They are not undocumented, they are documented as citizens of another country or in other words they are documented as not being American citizens. Foreign nationals are not immigrants because they never applied for immigration status or naturalization. I do feel sorry for these kids whose parents have allowed them to be raised in a foreign land so they don’t feel at home in the place of their documented citizenship. Perhaps, very slim perhaps, they should be offered legal residency status, but not citizenship. Why? Because their parents didn’t follow the rules, the laws and neither the parents or their child deserve to be allowed full citizenship with voting privileges. Full citizeship and voting privileges belong to those who follow the rules/laws. And it doesn’t matter that it was the parents who didn’t follow the rules, by denying the children full status, you are punishing the parents and yet at the same time we could be compassionate and reward the children with legal residency, yet deny them full citizenship and voting privileges as that was their parents goal and it should be denied as punishment to the parents. Yet by allowing the children legal residency they can stay, but it will be their children who are eligible for full citizenship and voting privileges. There has to be a line drawn or else we have to become imperialists, conquer the world and declare every living person on Earthto be an American citizen. Which is it?
Hopefully I’ve made some sense in what I wrote.
I have no tears for illegal foreign invaders. Your parents should have come to this country the legal way. They used you as a pawn in a shell game.
The ones rallying should all be packed into flat bed trucks and shipped back to their own country! Criminals should not be supplied with protest permits! Any American participating in an illegal protest should be heavily fined!
“Give me your tired, your worthless, your poor, yearning for the EITC.”
According to the latest census facts, 75% of illegals receive some form of government money, usually through aid to children.
The “children” attack the USA and their neighbors around them for insisting on adherance to legal immigration policy. Shouldn’t they be angry instead at their parents, who have all been here long enough to have at least started the immigration process and who have USED them for income? The anger is obviously misplaced.
so, How about, ‘se se pueda’ about getting their parents to accept responsibility for their actions AND the consequences? Should there be no penalty for illegal occupation? or stealing identities? or taking jobs/housing/services/immigration slots/foodstamps meant for those who are legally entitled to them?
(notice the illegals would rather leave, than begin the citizenship process and pay the financial penalties for their deceptions!!!!)
All we ask is that they come here legally. If that’s too much to ask, then they don’t belong here.
Although the US is basically lawless at this point now too. sigh.
I wanted to find an American flag that shows the bald eagle with the tear in its eye. That’s the only flag I feel like flying this Independence Day.
I like the way you think. I wonder if an alternative strategy might also work:
All the illegals are told (via Univision, etc) that they have one month to get their precious behinds, and those of their anchor babies and such, back across the border, which we then seal with shoot to kill orders for anyone trying to re-invade. We invade and take over the oil producing regions of Mexico if their government gives us any grief.
The illegals will alo be notified that anyone (man, woman or child) found inside our borders illegally after one month will be “conscripted” into our army, given a surplus weapon and a few mags and boxes of ammo, a week of MREs, and a parachute. They will then be flown to and air-dropped over some worthless third world hell-hole such as Somalia or Afghanistan, etc. Their mission is to fight to the death, and to colonize the country if they are victorious. And to drop us a post card from time to time to let us know how they’re doing - because we really care.
REFERENCE News reports say Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru are conspiring to collude with The Anti-Defamation League, The American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigrant rights groups to infringe on US sovereignty to make laws as we see fit. The co-conspirators filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Georgia's law and are now asking a judge to halt the measure pending the outcome of their case (which Ga courts agreed to)...and vote-crazed Obama is in on the collusion.
Illegals are a national security threat. They are conspiring to tear down democracy---and the hellholes they escaped from are helping them. .....colluding to form voting blocs that will pressure vote-crazed legislators to start the foreign aid gravy train to homelands to which illegals pledge their loyalty.......aided and abetted by the Ovomitons.
The lawbreaker actually say their activities are "inspired" by the Civil Rights movement. They've confronted legislators, launched hunger strikes, and even publicly announced their illegal status to draw attention to their demands for freebies.
ANALYSIS Notice the irony here----these criminals consider the United States an invader state---a foreign power imposed on Third World hellholes. They arrogantly refuse to refer to the US by its legal name. The US is known by latinos as el Norte, (the North), el Otro Lado (the Other Side), or Gringolandia (the Anglo Entity). Yet the freeloaders have little or no compunction in using American history to sate their greed.
By their very presence, illegals evince an utter contempt for America, Americans and our sacrosanct rule of law which uniquely defines the American way of life.
Riding the US gravy train for endless freebies is addictive----these users will do or say anything to keep sucking up benefits. We do not need, nor do we want on US soil, those who are all too willing to destroy Western civilization, and our democracy, for their own self-serving ends.
Those duped by the "here for a better life" scam need to read this. They only look like they're mowing loans, pumping gas, or flipping hamburgers.......the main occupation of these hyphenated-separatists is creating chaos to divert attention from the Third World they are building on US soil.
Census data? When the Ovomitons took over the census, many savvy observers figured he was going to manipulate the data for political purposes. How right we were. Just another vote-crazed Obama scheme.
FREEPERS, CUT THESE PEOPLE OFF AT THE BORDER---START THIS IN YOUR STATE Usually each state's Secy of State handles voter irregularities. Send letters to names on the voter rolls---requesting proof of citizenship, place of residence and SS #---advise that those who do not present proof will be stricken from the rolls. And get plenty of publicity to force action. Most Americans are appalled that their sacrosanct vote would be compromised. (More below)

Thanks for posting. Great thread BUMP!
Better idea all illegals can stay providing they sign up as republicans and conservatives he he he he he he he
If her illegal parents returned to idyllic Mexico she wouldn’t have to worry about them being deported. There is one thing, though—she might have to worry about being caught in the crossfire of waring drug cartels.
IF I were near one of these rallies, I would join one of these families. Just get in their car with them and go home with them, move into their house. When they question my intrusion, just explain that I are doing what they did, just moving in where I have no right to be.
How can you blame anyone for wanting to stay in the United States when you read of what a craphole Maxico is.
But, does she really want to be American or just another Mexican living in our country for it’s benefits.
How long does she or any of these other demonstrators think they would last if they were illegals protesting in Mexico.
For the sake of argument , let’s say we allowed each and every one of these people who have lived here 5 years ,and have no criminal record, to become American citizens—— if they said the Pledge of Allegiance and could speak English.
Thats all The pledge of allegiance and could speak English.
What would we do with the next 20 Million who would sneak in ,in the next ten years.
The biggest problem in my mind is not the illegals that have been here for ten years but that we are doing nothing to stop ten million, 20 million or more who continue to come.
Thieves Robber , Murderers, Dope Dealers ,M-13,Terrorists Iraqui’s Chinamen,Pimps and their women, anyone can enter this country just about anytime they want to by simply walking across the border, and we are doing nothing to stop it.
We are in a quandry. The Illegals already here have us by the balls, we will not round them up and move them out. It simply will not happen. face it, It aint going to happen.
We might get a few but we are not going to get the bulk of 20 million people rounded up and moved out. That is a pipe dream.
Give them citizenship if they swear fealty to America and give up this La Raza BS. Tax them like America tax’s me. let them work like I work. Make them get permits and licenses and Insurance. 20 million new people paying tax’s and buying insurance and permits will help the economy.
But Got dammit stop the new ones at the border, and send them back. Make it so that this will not happen again in ten years or 20. No more anchor babies. No more welfare, No more La Raza, no more Mexican flags, No more M-13.
Then go home.
Response: It is a crying shame that she is living "in a constant state of fear.." It should in a constant state of terror felt while her and her family are bussed to Mexico. Question: Why are not the authorities and/or American citizens out putting these people on buses, trains, tractor/trailers, taxis, cargo planes and flown to Mexico? If they resist then do what is necessary.
We can't afford you and we're also tired of you killing our citizens.
This protest smells like... FAILURE
“Make a deal with her. She can stay, and be granted legal status, but she has to turn in her parents to ICE.”
Eliminate the so called birth right and ship all 3 of them back!
Eighteen-year-old Myra Cerecero said she wakes up every morning praying her parents made it home safely.”I’m living in a constant state of fear they’ll be picked up,”
In this case mom is probably raping the taxpayers while working at a job in which she pays no social security or medicare taxes, no withholding since she does not report her income and a whole host of other “crimes” she commits against an honest working society.
I hope mom does not come home next week.
I proposed a cartoon at work, 1st pane is a martian looking guy saying “Take me to your leader”. 2nd pane in a Mex in sombrero with wife and umpteen kids saying “Take me to your welfare office and your school, and your hospital, and your Federal Housing office.....
She’s guilty too but Laz would hit it.
I think it’s going to end up the same way gun control and abortion has ended up..............long bitter battles followed by the conservative position being the law of the land.
We don’t have an endless time to do it, but the movement to law and order is moving much faster this time around.
Yes, Amerians can retake its nation if it wants it back but it will not happen all by itself or if one just sits around on their hands waiting on politicians who just give you lip service all the while they work to mainstream the damn illegals in every way they can. Democrats AND Republicans alike are taking sides with Big Business and the illegal alien lobby and Americans are losing.
