Los Angeles Times ^ | June 15, 2012

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.

Our country is not ours anymore. Any idiot on FR who supports this is an anti-American traitor.

We’ve been sold out.

To repeat the mantra, "If obama wins re-election, our Republic is gone".

At least it was only about 100 of them.

Typical to have such a huge crowd of dreamers in these parts...Sheriff Joe had a few of his own today...Let them dream on! Cause this ain't no where near the norm across this great land.

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.

Now if he’d only block the detention of murderers, rapists, robbers, counterfeiters, and kidnappers, the appreciative crowds would really swell.

I had a vision that Sheriff Joe and NOT John Boehner was leading the House. It was a good one. Now THAT is a “Dream” I would support - especially this week!

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.
