Sheila Jackson Lee: ‘Be prepared’ for immigration protests
The Daily Caller ^ | February 11, 2014 | Caroline May

Posted on 02/11/2014 10:04:43 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

During a House panel hearing on asylum fraud, Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee warned her committee colleagues to “be prepared” for immigration protests.

“Let me just take note of the fact and in as calm a voice as I might do so … as I understand it before I came into the chambers there were persons expressing their First Amendment rights and obviously through the protocol of this committee were removed from the committee but they were expressing their consternation, their frustration, their hurt and their pain,” she said.

At the beginning of the hearing, pro-immigration reform protesters shouted, “Citizenship now! Families together!” at lawmakers in the chamber before they were escorted out of the hearing room. Reform Immigration FOR America and the Fair Immigration Reform Movement claimed credit for the disruption.

According to Lee, this summer, immigration reform activists will be out in droves to protest for immigration reform. The Texas congresswoman further compared the activists’ struggle to that of African-Americans during the 1960s.

“Fifty years ago when African Americans were experiencing that kind of pain, they engaged in something called Freedom Summer and it was to emphasize to the nation that we are in essence deserving of a fair plane and justice,” she said. “And so as a member of Congress I am committed to abiding by the law but I would expect that we will see thousands upon thousands of individuals from all backgrounds coming to this Congress in the summer and finally saying ‘enough is enough.’”

She continued, tying her argument to the topic of the hearing by saying that the protesters will be people who might have been granted asylum and “others expressing themselves’ for someone to listen.”(continued)

The United States government is under no obligation to protect or recognize the natural rights of citizens from other countries. The government is to protect its own citizens’ rights—that’s its primary duty.

Where is Ms. Lee’s concern about breaking up the families of bank robbers? They’re people too! Don’t break up families just because dad had to resort to desperate measures to feed his family. So what if momma drove the get away car? She’s just contributing what she can to the family income. It’s not fair to lock them up now...they’ve been here doing their jobs for the last 10 years.

She should be censured for incitement. But then again she has that protective melanin coating, that allows you to get away with anything.

Where is her empathy for middle class citizen tax-payers who have become slaves of the government?
Where is her outrage for citizens of the US who cannot find full time jobs, yet are taxed to support every non-citizen immigrant who decides they want to come across our border? Now, our blood sucking government wants to allow “refugees” who have Islamist ties in here and the middle class slaves must pay for them also.
It’s revolting.....I could almost puke whenever I see Obama, Reid, Pelosi, McCain and the rest who have sold their souls to the devil to remain “in power.” This country has gone to hell....

....”The United States government is under no obligation to protect or recognize the natural rights of citizens from other countries. The government is to protect its own citizens’ rights—that’s its primary duty”......

It's been years now since the Government has been concerned about it's “own citizens”....we are simply a commodity and revenue source to assist them in achieving their Global Aspirations, which have nothing to do with us apart from the previously mentioned.

Anyone who believes that Government is "obligated" to it's Citizens is seeing through rose colored glasses. It's not about the Constitution or Laws of our nation...it''s all about the abuse of Power...period.

Blacks are the first on the economic chopping block if illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America are given amnesty. Who do you think will get underbid in salary and subservience on the low end jobs currently held by inner city blacks?

If the Illegals can get Amnesty for Trespassing, why can’t we all get pre-emptive amnesty for paying taxes for the next 30 years?

Since immigration Law is basically an “Anti Trespassing Law” should then all citizens be able to freely go onto ANY FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INSTALLATION????

Personally I wouldn’t mind taking a hike all they way into the so called “Area 51” base, I am sure other freepers would love to take a stroll down the hallways of Ft. Knox with pen an paper in hand to count all the gold bars that are probably not there...

Will Sheila afford the same concern for the TEA party and Conservatives?

That is a maxim of our revolution. Outside of talk radio, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and scant few others, we never hear those ideas.

The very essence of mob (attempted) rule...

If these illegals truly want to become US citizens, there is a path already laid out for that. The fact that they have chosen to live outside the established laws of the US is what makes them criminals.
Amnesty for these people is a slap in the face to every American. It has been done before, and every time we were told it was the last time; that it would not lead to more illegals. And every time was a bald faced lie from the socialists; the last time by the most hypocritical socialist, Ted Kennedy.
Amnesty again will only serve to secure dhimmicrap voters and the continued slide toward the abyss of despotic socialism in America.

Keep the heat on your elected representatives to stop this immoral effort.

That's no threat, try this one however:

The GGGs (ghetto gimmee girls) and the domestic black savages will be at risk. as the free stuff from the gubmint will be redirected to this new dependent voting bloc to nail down their vote. The Mexican gangs will be wiping out the black gang bangers.

Lots of other bad stuff will happen as the law of unintended consequences takes hold.

Sheila is either racially confused or making a very fine political calculation.

Overwhelming the system with predominantly Mexican immigrants who will eventually become voters might be good for the Democratic Party, but it isn’t good for Blacks because of competition for jobs and government “resources.”

What’s more important to you, Sheila?

If the illegals were republican voters the fascist democrats would send in tanks to round them up for deportation. This is just another case of the democrats destroying the country for political gain. They put politics in front of everything.

And that idiot Sheila Jackson Lee will lose her job, too! There will be no love lost between the black liberal faction and the proposed Hispanic faction of the Democrat party. With up to 30 million new "immigrants", most from south of the border, she and her buddies will be pushed to the back of the bus. And the corruption meter will peg into the red zone.

Having this POS racist communist as my “representative” is a source of incredible irritation to me.

It moved here from New Yawk, proceed to inject its racist ideas into city council, ran for and won a racist gerrymandered seat, and has infested congress ever since.

It has the worst record in all of congress as a horrific employer with unreal turnover, and shames us every time it opens its racist, commie mouth. It doesn’t care about ANYBODY but itself.

“Queen Sheila”, my ass.
