Immigration rights activists pull into Charlotte for DNC
By Lindsay Ruebens

Posted: Saturday, Sep. 01, 2012

CHARLOTTE, N.C. One is a stay-at-home mom of three. Another is a construction worker. One is a student who hopes to attend graduate school for math and economics.

All of them risked deportation to demand greater rights for undocumented immigrants.

They, along with 22 others, arrived in Charlotte Saturday evening on the “Undocubus.”

People should go to the auditorium and dress up in uniforms that look something like INS uniforms (but not enough like them to get arrested for impersonating) and have a big sign saying "Document Check,Have Your Green Card Ready".

The riot that ensues would make for great television.

I lived in Charlotte for over 15 years. I’ll never forget being Uptown and dining with friends. There happened to be a football game that day at the fairly new ‘Panther Stadium’. We saw many fans outside the restaurant and one lady was dressed with a huge ‘Cheesehead’ Green Bay Packer hat. The lady dining with us saw the dressed up fan, and said, “I would be truly ‘mortified’ to wear that” !

Anyway, I wonder what the Charlotte locals will think of all the disguting Occupy protesters and anarchists tearing up their beautiful ‘Uptown’ ?!

My DVR is loaded and unlike Obama I won’t watch the unhappy DNC Convention but will laugh at the Fact Checkers there

Back then, there were also letters to the editor (Charlotte Observer) about fans being ‘rowdy’ at Panther football games, and actually ‘standing up’ in front of others!!!!

Hope the protesters don’t get too ‘rowdy’ !

Let the freak show begin. America needs a good dose of the liberal future so maybe (just maybe) they will stop electing pinhead asshat moonbat liberals.

Charlotte is ‘way’ in the bible belt. Large highway named ‘Billy Graham’ Highway going to airport.
Southpark Mall on Sundays - everyone still in their Sunday Church clothes.
No one (or very few) mowed grass or did yard work on a Sunday.

Y'all may get away with this in Charolette and Mt Pilot, but here... in Mayberry, we don't take citizenship for granted--

So get out your drivers license and insurance... or do I put my bullet in my gun!

Illegal Aliens are not “immigrants”

Nothing gets my goard up than when an Illegal Alien is referred to as an “immigrant”. That is like calling a shoplifter a “customer”

The sob stories presented here do not hide the fact that most illegals are un-educated, go on public assistance, commit violent crimes, and all 100% of them have broken the law to get here/stay here

We have honest, hard-working Americans unemployed....even some going hungry....and we are feeling bad for lawbreaker Illegal Aliens?

I’m sure ICE will put them back on the bus and let them off back across the border where they belong.

Not.

Let them into the convention center without an ID and give them a hotel room. No ID required. For that matter no credit card or cash either.

Sneak past the border patrol (an agency deployed at great expense to taxpayers, ostensibly to prevent illegal border entry) and get in line for your prize.

The situation is farcical. The US government rewards anyone who manages to outsmart its own law enforcement agents.

I saw “Undocubus” in an article title on another site, “The Undocubus Arrives In Charlotte,” and quite honestly thought Obama had gotten there early. Undocumented incubus on a bus.

Illegals are bad enough but now we learn that there are 850,000 *legal* immigrants who are getting into the country under false pretenses.

Wouldn’t these guys make a great lifesize billboard. Place it right in front of the Democratic convention.

Every illegal alien supports a vast criminal network that involves millions of false documents and identity theft, denial of jobs to Americans, driving without licenses, widespread drunk driving, sponging off the welfare system (the liars of officialdom used to deny it but now we have proof), costing many billions in education costs, prison costs and unpaid hospital bills, destruction of neighborhoods by overcrowding of houses, ethnic displacement as long time residents are pushed out of their homes, corruption of our political system and millions of petty criminals and felons roam our states killing, raping, stealing and promoting the huge drug business that originates in Mexico and is kept alive by millions of illegals who transport and sell drugs to our kids.
