Young face put on illegal migration at DNC

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democrats broke yet another barrier Wednesday when they invited an illegal immigrant young adult onto the stage at their nominating convention in Charlotte — part of a historic Hispanic outreach program the party hopes will cement ties to the fast-growing ethnic voting bloc in the country.

It’s likely the first time an illegal immigrant has taken the podium at a major party convention, and highlights President Obama’s own stance on the issue: The student, Benita Veliz, had her deportation halted under Mr. Obama’s non-deportation policies.

In a pointed political appeal, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, the Illinois Democrat who has become his party’s de facto leader in pushing immigration reforms, said the fate of Ms. Veliz and a million other illegal immigrants rests on whether Mr. Obama gets re-elected.

“President Obama is protecting immigrants. Mitt Romney wants to send them back,” Mr. Gutierrez said. “This election will determine whether high school valedictorians, football team captains, and student council presidents will be treated with respect — or treated like suspects. Whether they reach their dreams, or whether Mitt Romney turns their dreams into nightmares.”

They need to put a face on the US tax peasant they’re looting and pillaging to pay for the “undocumented migrants”.

that’s nothing. Tonight there’ll be another illegal immigrant lecturing the choir on why he deserves a second term.

“President Obama is protecting [illegal] immigrants. Mitt Romney wants to send them back,” Mr. Gutierrez said.

They always manage to leave out that word don't they.

Arrest and deport her.

Or resign, 0bama.

Non-Enforcement of the Law breaches your sworn duty to uphold the Constitution.

Why is Obama allowed to just declare amnesty, especially when there is high unemployment for US citizens.

Congress, both parties...fail us.

I agree with the use of the word “migration” in this title vs. “immigration.” Previous generations of immigrants came here mostly to be Americans, to enjoy the fruits of liberty, and to become part of the American culture. My great grandfather labored for years after his arrival to purge any German accent because he was so committed to becoming an American. Unfortunately, a big part of this new batch are here for handouts and, if we're lucky, for a job. These are migratory populations that will scoot out of the U.S. the instant they think they can get a better deal somewhere else. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, but let's call them what they are, a migratory population, not American immigrants.

So let’s see, if you are a dem, this is what your party is all about:

-No God
-No Jerusalem
-Free abortion for all
-Free sex change operations
-Illegals are now legal, unafraid and in your face
-Bill Clinton is the party hero
-Debbie Wasserman can unabashedly lie with the party’s blessing despite video proof she is a liar without any fear of repercussions
-Fauxcahontas is another party POS who is welcomed into the liar pit with open arms

Have I missed anything?

And I have to believe that there are many members of the dem party who are seriously considering themselves to be former members after the last couple of days in Charlotte.

“President Obama is protecting [illegal] immigrants. Mitt Romney wants to send them back,” Mr. Gutierrez said.

They always manage to leave out that word don't they.

Also left out, "...Romney wants to send them back [home]."

Where are the milksop Republicans? Watch as Romney and Co. become as bad as the open border Bush and Obama. Also note how Drudge and all the other “Conservative” saps Rush, Levin, Coulter, Hannity, Malkin, etc., never ever mention the Migration Traitors! Fluck Them!

Obama issued an unlawful dictatorial decree that gives a million illegals Amnesty and that takes more jobs away from Americans.

Obama should be impeached for that. He is in charge of our executive branch and a criminal was allowed to be in his midst unpunished.

The scary thing is that so little has been done to combat this problem in the last thirty years that we are essentially already condemned to becoming another third world hole in the next century. At this point enough of them have been able to breed large numbers of citizen children who in turn breed like rabbits. Future demographics are looking ugly.
