Tonight, for the first time, an undocumented immigrant will speak at a national political convention. Benita Veliz, 27, was brought to Texas from Mexico by her parents when she was 8 years old. She was threatened with deportation in 2009 after rolling through a stop sign and getting stopped by police.

How did she enter school without a birth certificate or SS#? Does she drive, how did she get a license? How much you want to bet... she’s registered to vote too.

From Charlottein2012.com
Local law enforcement and the U.S. Secret Service released a comprehensive security plan, including street closures, pedestrian restrictions, and detailed maps. You can read the plan in its entirety here. The Host Committee worked with our City partners to put together the following as a summary of that plan to make it easier for local residents and businesses to find answers to their questions.

Pedestrians walking to their home or business that falls into a restricted area will be required to provide identification when the road is closed. Passenger (as opposed to commercial) vehicles attempting to enter streets with restricted vehicle access must go through a vehicle checkpoint.

What type of identification is required?
A standard issued government ID is requested

Is there ANYTHING American about this f**king convention???

Gays, abortion, illegal immigrants, “we all belong to the government”,and atheism????

Bring back the Democrats of 80s! They may have been kooky libs, but they were mostly benign yuppies going through the motions and showed at least some indication that they were Americans.

Is it a felony or a misdemeanor to be present in this country in violation of various Federal laws? And apart from being present in this country illegally I wonder what other state or Federal laws she might have violated (or might be violating)...identity theft,illegally applying for welfare/medicaid/food stamps,etc....

They vilify and demonize entire groups of people.
They glorify the government and say the people belong to it.
They openly show hatred for God (theirs is the state)
They openly hate Israel and Jews and free markets
.... oh and they like to call others NAZI’s.

Think about it

I do not know how this illegal invader entered school, but all of these illegal invaders were helped along by Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” Bull Scat.

This legislation is breaking our schools in Texas and driving our school and property taxes out the roof. More than likely, not only Texas.....

“She should be arrested on the spot.”

No...I think it puts on display the selective enforcement policies of this administration for all to see. “Equal protection under the law”...uh...not. No one is protecting me from illegal aliens. I though that was Government Job #0. Not just this government. ANY government.

Note that I’m not complaining about immigration. But I don’t think it’s unreasonable to be on the TERMS OF THE CITIZENS WHO ALREADY LIVE THERE.

Now try try to imagine an American, Nicaraguan, Guatemalan, Salvadorian or Panamanian illegal alien allowed to speak to a national political convention in Mexico to promote illegality and sneaking in to their country without permission. Hard to do?

Requiring photo ID is “racist,” except when it’s done by the NAACP, Eric Holder, unions, Obama, etc.

arrest and deport this illegal and send a message that we do have laws.

The immigration , illegals, openly serving homosexuals, food stamps,obamacare and handouts etc all need ot be looked and dealt with in the first week .

Send a message to the illegals and the homosexuals need to be told that one group will not have special laws and the other be told that them here illegaly will be sent home at a cost to their family

You can do a lot to change a country just by controlling the training of future school administrators.

Article 33 of the Mexican Constitution prohibits any form of political activity whatsoever by non-citizens in Mexico. Doing so will get you arrested and hustled onto the next flight out of the country, with “no prior legal action.”

They really need to have an late term abortion doctor, a shemale, a militant atheist activist from the ACLU (and possibly a Wiccan/Druid/Church of Satan representative) to speak at this convention so they practice what they preach.

I was at a McDonalds today and listened as one of the managers explained the ice cream machine to a new employee. In Spanish. And I thought of all the unemployed Americans.

Meanwhile, one of my sons has a job, and one of the managers keeps altering sons hours so that he is paid less. The managers do all clocking in and out. They also require all tips to be put in the community cup to be doled out later. There was one day when my son was handed a $50 tip that he was told to put in the group cup. His paycheck reflected that he earned $7 in tips. He had also been handed a $20 tip on the same day. Yes, he needs to find another job. But the scamming managers need to be fired. My point here is that he can’t complain because this job is better than no job. But it is sooooooo disappointing to him to expect his paycheck to be a certain amount and then to find that he is missing hours due to dishonest managers.

Yes I understand this and you would think it would be the other way around.

You would think our Country would make room for the American Citizen’s Child in the front of the line in a class room, but that is not the way it is.

It is the other way around. Lowered rates for illegal invaders. Hand out for illegal invaders. Front seats and front rows for illegal invaders.

Up is down and down is up. Only thing I agree with Odumbo on, Time for a Change, a big change. Texas needs to Secede and Secede now. Drive these freeloaders out of our Country.

If you don’t do it soon, California is your future. Trust me, I was born here in 1960 and I’ve seen the entire slide from a great and productive state into pathetic liberal FAIL.

You are going down the same road.

“a celebraztion of abortion, transgenderism, illegal aliens,
defiance of God, pandering, and silliness...”

———hey, it’s a cultural thing.When the Democrats lift one corner up,
everything that’s not allready nailed down in a state of stability,
winds up in their enclosure, which is why they’re left with their natural constituencies, which you just named.
They used to say the same thing about California, now a flagship state for Democratic party interests.
