When American flag-waving protesters forced busloads of migrants to leave Murrieta earlier this week, the Southern California city became the latest flashpoint in an intensifying immigration debate that could heat up even more as patriotism surges on the Fourth of July.

Weve had it, said Carol Schlaepfer, a retired Pomona resident who protested Tuesday in Murrieta. We all want a better life. ... You cant come to our country and expect American citizens to dole out what you need, from grade school till death.
People on both sides of the issue want immigration reform, but immigrant rights advocates say anti-illegal immigration protesters chastise the mostly women and children crossing the border.
Its sad that some community members dont see the big picture, said Luz Gallegos, co-founder of the immigration legal aid center TODEC in nearby Perris.
Thousands of children and families have arrived on the Texas border in recent months fleeing violence, murders and extortion from criminal gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. Since October, more than 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained.
The crunch on the border in Texas Rio Grande Valley prompted U.S. authorities to fly immigrant families to other Texas cities and to Southern California for processing.

That needs to become our national motto for everyone. Three months and you’re on your own.
“Its sad that some community members dont see the big picture, said Luz Gallegos”
Oh we see it alright, Luz. And it’s damned ugly.
Why three months?
I don’t understand yet IF any of these people capitulating to the tune of “immigration reform” even understand what they are saying!
For crying out loud we have laws. We have programs in place for immigration that worked for years, and years through every sort of administration of our government until all of a sudden it was decided to not enforce those laws, and allow chaos to happen.
Enforce the laws on the books, and throw out the damned illegals NOW. THROW THEM OUT OF THE COUNTRY. Let those prospective immigrants that qualify under the existing laws go through the legal processes to enter our country, and let them in as has been the process for seemingly ever.
“immigrant rights advocates” translated into English: illegal alien enablers.
The only `right’ they have is to be deported without having been beaten or abused, as illegal aliens are in Mexico.
Cheap labor for corporate America. Congress approves, 100%. There’s too many governors and Congress critters silent on this invasion for this not to be true.
I don’t mind helping someone onto their feet but I hate wiping their butts when they are adults.
Corporate America will be out in force on the MSM with study after study claiming immigrants help improve US economy and create jobs. FOX show Independents had the panel of libertarians attack the sole FAIR rep, claiming any anti illegal immigration viewpoint is BS. The main female host held up papers and waved it at the FAIR claiming that immigrants did not cause the US recession and wage decreases. That is the new mantra, mixing legal immigration results with illegal immigration data and claim that immigration is good for US economy. Problem is MSM and corporate propaganda is not working. In the past people watching that on TV rolled their eyes, today they are cursing out the TV announcer. The average guy on the street is barely making ends meet, the last thing he wants is illegal immigrant children dumped into his community driving up gov costs. This cuts across party lines. I think this is going to explode.
Rich people, corporations, politicians, people of color and liberal whites/libertarians, better watch their backs. America is in no mood for this BS anymore.
I’d say she understands the big picture very well.
Go to thread # 3176128 my post #27. I did calculations there.
In only 3 days time, the media has gone form predicting 60,000 invaders to 80,000 invaders & at 4:09 PM PDT today, NBC stated 90,000 are expected this year.
At the rate that number is leaping forward, we have to something to get them back out of the USA.
“The big picture” is “enlarging the Democrats’ voting base.”
