Skip to comments.Park Service OKs immigration reform rally on 'closed' National Mall
Posted on 10/07/2013 12:15:38 PM PDT by ColdOne
A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.
Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group's rights granted by the First Amendment.
About 30 members of Congress are expected to attend the rally, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J.

The level of cynicism of this administration is hard to believe.
It’s time for Americans to go to the District of Corruption and perform some citizen’s arrests. The bass turds in the government have gone crazy and are out of control.
0bama closes state highway 34 between Grand Lake and Estes Park, CO. One of only two ways into the mountain town after the thousand-year flood destroyed the three main routes.
Trail Ridge road between Grand Lake and Estes Park CO is closed due to the shutdown. It is one of only two roads into Estes Park after the floods. This is a declared disaster area with major infrastructure damage. TR road will close for the winter due to weather before long but every day and every access route counts as this mountain town of 10,000 tries to get a handle on the flood aftermath before serious winter weather sets in.
TR road is a state highway so where do the Feds get off closing it? Unfortunately Mayor Pinkham doesn't have the balls to stand up for Estes Park. He was on Fox News putting the blame on Congress instead of doing his job. But the fact remains, it is 0bama that is applying pain to people in a national disaster area for political gamesmanship.
I post this not to complain or find relief but simply to inform all of yet another incident of 0malignant's narcissistic cruelty.
Let me get this straight. Americans are forbidden from viewing the U.S. Constitution because of Barry’s shutdown but Jose the Illegal Alien can protest on the mall because of HIS First Amendment rights? Are you ****ing kidding me?!!!
LOOKS AS IF THE “PARK SERVICE” WILL BE AT THE TOIP OF THE LIST.
The SA receives preferential treatment.
Are you surprised? Shocked? Well the hope is that all the baby rapists and grandmother rapists who murder their victims will be able to live free in America.
While you white cracka’s pay for all your oppression of the other races. And you will without so much as a peep!
Any of the rev’s of the church going to say anything against it?
After all oMao has decreed it from on high.
he just gonna make whitey pay,,,
The house needs to have some hearings to ask the admin tough questions regarding how they handled the shut down. They need to do this sooner rather than later.
This selective rewarding and punishing according to political beliefs is a hallmark of tyranny.
Oh, hearings! That’ll scare ‘em! Just like Fast and Furious and Benghazi.
Obama- punishing enemies and rewarding friends.
Face the reality.
Illegals are more important to Obama than Americans.
He craps on us while kissing them.
Once again this now openly dictatorial administration shows off!
These ##$$%% are trying so hard to start something.
They keep jabbing us, a little harder, more frequently, and in more sensitive spots.
After while, the involuntary nervous system kicks in and we have an unplanned reaction.
Uhh ... such as phone calls to congress, and letters to the editor.
I just blasted all three of my buffoons on Capitol Hill over this. I’m really PIST! This is a disgrace. A fiasco.
They have to keep the racist hatred going or what would they have to offer?
Pray America is Waking Up
Hard to believe ain’t it? It likes a nightmare.
They oughtta hook up dynamos to the Framers ...
This is exactly how Obumbacare will work. If you are on the "naughty" list (Republican, gun owner, Christian, home schooler, working, law abiding, straight, etc.), you will be put at the end of the line for your health care. You'll get to sit in the waiting room for hours while Obumba's peeps and illegals go right in.
.,.but they won’t OK WWII Vets or ANY VETS of any kind!
Somebody needs to inform this ditz that Barry has shutdown the U.S. Constitution. Even Americans don't have First Amendment right anymore!
Travis, you said “This selective rewarding and punishing according to political beliefs is a hallmark of tyranny.”
Yes, it is. I’m surprised the light hasn’t come on for more people.
History repeats, but how often does it come with a red letter warning like we’ve had?
Illegal Foreign Invaders don't HAVE 1st Amendment rights.
Somebody needs to go back to a Kindergarten level Constitution Class.
*This selective rewarding and punishing according to political beliefs is a hallmark of tyranny.*
Soviet Style is the new black in Washington this season.
In ONE respect this is GOOD.
Think how these areas look after a LIB rally, speech, parade etc and remember DC has agreed to pick up FED trash, so when DC starts griping over the amount of FED trash they are picking up etc etc...
As stated, screw the fact that the Vets groups AND CITIZENS that plan ahead and come to the Nations Capitol for vacations, reunions, USUALLY more expensive than most cities in the country, and the OPEN AIR MONUMENTS are closed while a group ‘FIGHTING FOR ILLEGALS RIGHTS’ is given an open invite.
Of course the ‘Officials’ realize that (at this point) the average citizen or vet, while mad etc will most likely vacate the scene when asked or ‘pressured’ to do so.
These ‘ingrates’ would more than likely act the way WE should when PUBLIC LAND is shut to the OWNERS....
What has the ‘official’ reaction been to the propose 1 mill vet etc event???? or the truckers or the bikers coming back to try and ‘right the ship of state’?
Uhh ... such as phone calls to congress, and letters to the editor.
= = = = = = = = = = = = =
What is up with the states allowing State and Local Police to assist in enforcing these idiots shutdowns of parkland and roadways leading to it?
Naturally the states will claim it is in the interest of the public so as cars aren’t running through barakacades, parking on shoulders, etc etc....
Heard today Virginia State Police was ‘blocking’ or not allowing people into the turnouts etc on Blue Ridge Parkway???
Will admit the guy that ‘reported’ this today was upset (he wanted to spread his wife’s ashes at one of the outlooks) and he may have been ‘mistaken’ but he did call the “Smokie Hat’s” the VSP wear.....
Heard today Virginia State Police was blocking or not allowing people into the turnouts etc on Blue Ridge Parkway??
= = = = = = = = = =
...If this is ‘true’ funny how the Fed wants the states to play ‘enforcer/cop’ when it comes to AMERICAN CITIZENS peacefully trying to exercise their ‘rights’ YET local PD’s etc are told to BACK OFF when it comes to the handling or investigation of suspected AND illegal aliens......
Does anyone know if there is a profanity filter when you send your useless representative an email? (I have issues with this at work.)
I’ve never emailed a representative before. In fact, my new zip code apparently straddles two congressional districts and I had to blow the map up to street level to see which idiot was the right guy.

This administration is the most evil one ever....perhaps in the world’s history.
More than enough reason to rid this nation of this evil cancer that is killing all of us!
Yes, Eric. I hope the employees can find good jobs later - you know, in the private sector.
Illegals vote rat. Veterans don’t. That’s all that matters to the fascist-in-chief.
Apparently Our Little Dictator never read “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. He’s instead playing this like a spoiled 3 year old who doesn’t get his way; something I’m sure he learned well growing up; if one could say he ever grew up, which is questionable.
If he wanted to play this smart, he’d acquiesce to a delay in Obamacare, “for the good of the Country”. He could then claim the high ground in the debate. But, no; he’s too petty for such a play.
So why was the Mall (among other places) closed in the first place? So the American people would have a difficult time gathering to protest the Zero King!!
It is time for a million bikers, a couple million vets, a half million big 4X4's, and a few thousand big rigs, to employ the tactics of Move On and shut the place down for a few months.
