Young illegal immigrants block freeway ramps, cheer Obama
Los Angeles Times ^ | June 15, 2012

Posted on 06/15/2012 11:31:56 PM PDT by bd476


More than 100 jubilant college students and graduates -- some of them undocumented -- rallied in downtown Los Angeles on Friday in support of President Obama's decision to halt deportations of young illegal immigrants.

At the L.A. Civic Center, the demonstrators chanted, “We are the Dreamers, the mighty, mighty dreamers” and moved off the sidewalk and sat in a long train blocking Aliso Street, from Los Angeles Street to Alameda Street. They were also blocking entrance ramps to the 101 Freeway.

Celebratory chants and speeches could be heard outside the federal building at Los Angeles and Aliso streets after the Obama administration announced the policy that will affect young undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before they turned 16.

"Ain't no power like the power of the people 'cause the power of the people don’t stop,” demonstrators chanted. Others yelled, "Obama you can court us, but you can't deport us."

"This is a moment of celebration. This is a step forward in the right direction,” said Dulce Matuz, 27, an electrical engineering graduate who attended college in Arizona.

"But we need to keep fighting for long-term legislation."

Effective immediately, young immigrants under the age of 30 will be allowed to apply for work permits as long as they have no criminal history and are not a threat to ...

“Dreamers” is the right word. Not a one of them would be able to face reality, or the consequences coming down the road . . .

Well, if the Police were doing their job and arrest them for blocking sidewalks, impeding traffic etc, wouldn’t that give them a record, thereby negating their eligibility?
BO said they had to have a clean record.

Or maybe if they grant the kids amnesty, kick the parents out for being illegal - they (Feds) will know where to find them once the kids line up for their freebies...hmmm my diabolical, conspiritorial mind would like to think this is the plan.....

But since it is BO’s doing, THAT is the dream.

Gee. Let me think about it...





Hmmmm. Still thinking...



By the way, those blocking traffic weren't quite as young as the title would lead us to believe...





And now they have made a commitment to supporting those who have supported them...





Gotta let you know that that was a very good question...





After Obama is through with us, Mayor Villaraigosa's next political goal is easy to guess and will be an easy shoe-in for him.

The liberal majority in our Supreme Court has already put that in motion.

Supreme Court Upholds Court Order to Reduce California Prison Population


< Snip >

"...Justice Scalia summarized his dissent, which was pungent and combative, from the bench. Oral dissents are rare; this was the second of the term. Justice Kennedy looked straight ahead as his colleague spoke, his face frozen in a grim expression.

The decision was the fourth 5-to-4 decision of the term so far. All four of them have found the court’s more liberal members on one side and its more conservative members on the other, with Justice Kennedy’s swing vote the conclusive one. In the first three cases, Justice Kennedy sided with the conservatives.

On Monday, he went the other way. This was in some ways unsurprising: in his opinions and in speeches, Justice Kennedy has long been critical of what he views as excessively long and harsh sentences..."

Justices, 5-4, Tell California to Cut Prisoner Population


California also has plans in place to transfer some of California's prisoners to other States' prisons within a year.

We already have long term legislation.

What we need are some honest politicians who will actually keep their oaths of office, represent the citizens who elect them and pay them, and who will do their jobs and enforce the law of the land.

Too late.. this analogous to failing to treat a growing cancer which should`ve been removed long ago when it was small. Now that it`s metastasized to its present huge size, it`s now inoperable.

I said it yesterday...this was done in an effort not to garner votes from this segment of the population.

This was done to create a crisis.

Go on I double dog dare you says 0bama to walk this EO back.

Go on Mitt Romney I double dog dare you to oppose this action(although Mitt had a great response yesterday).

Go on America oppose my actions on this, this segment will riot in the streets.

Is this for votes? I don't think so. This is being orchestrated for something else much more sinister. They've been trying for 3.5 years to provoke a need for calling out the National Guard or Martial Law.

Make no mistake here...this is not about votes. This is about stopping the election in Nov. These illegal kids don't realize they are being played for useful idiots.

Even 0bama's response saying this was good for America was half-hearted. He didn't believe it..it wasn't said with conviction or passion.

It takes less than 700,000 to create a congressional district. 300 million makes a crapload of democrat districts.

If things keep going as they are, we will continue to surrender by default, apathy, and cowardice. But some civil breakdown might jump start a few patriots' hearts. Our side might actually WIN in such a state of affairs.

Pretty bad when you’re so unpopular you have to import voters.

That said: why do I have to obey the law when these people don’t?

Answer: because I’m white.

And when I complain, I’m a called a racist.

The people DO have a little power here...don't do business with those who hire illegals, and make some noise about it. Of course; that would require a little effort on the part of the people, and that seems to be asking too much.

In Congress Democrats tried to pass the Dream act Amnesty for illegals. Republicans in congress blocked it and killed this act.We all worked hard and long to defeat this Dream act because it was Amnesty for illegals. Now this Marxist, Monster dictator Obama passes what was in the Dream act with a decree. Unbelievable.And the media is covering for it.
