AR-15-toting Michigan residents rally to halt plans for immigrant depot
Washington Times ^ | July 17, 2014 | Cheryl K. Chumley

Posted on 07/17/2014 7:40:11 AM PDT by Zakeet

At least 50 people carting weapons, flags and posters expressing anger with the porous border took to Vassar, Mich., streets to rally against a plan to ship some of the illegal minor-aged immigrants to their community.

Many in the crowd carried AR-15 rifles and handguns — the latest sign of the growing unrest around the nation that’s marking the federal government’s response to tens of thousands of illegals crossing into U.S. territories in recent months. They also carted “Don’t Tread on Me” flags and a “Second Amendment Revolution” flag, a design that includes the basic Betsy Ross pattern with the Roman number II and a circle of 13 stars, Raw Story reported.

EXCELLENT photos of the REAL difference.

I have a Mexican cousin who did it the RIGHT way.

Since the USA doesn't recognize dual citizenship she has both Mexican and US citizenship. It ticks HER off to see the illegal swarms at our border!

Well hey, if the Government isn't going to follow the law in regards to immigration or health care, elections etc, why the hell should the rest of us follow any other laws?

Someone should round up all of these illegal immigrants and drop them all off at the school Obama’s kids attend.

I am so confused and frustrated by what’s going on with these “children” swamping the border.

1. why do we need resettlement camps? Why aren’t we summarily deporting people?

2. Are we encouraging illegal aliens to come here, because it’s become common knowledge that we don’t enforce our immigration laws?

3. Why are elected officials around the country not being informed of plans to resettle these “refugees” in their communities?

4. why are elected officials such as congressmen being banned from visiting the alien camps?

5. Why are doctors and nurses who have been working with the aliens been put under a gag order, and ordered not to speak about what they are doing or what they are seeing?

6. Why are the aliens being scattered around the country? If we expect that they will eventually be deported, why would they be resettled in the interior of America somewhere? Reports from around the country indicate that this is not just a Texas border problem.

I say we send them all the ghetto projects. If the ghettos are good enough for the legal children in this nation, they should be good enough for these illegals.

Also, many in the projects supported this “hope & change” immoral clown so it’s only fair they receive the fruits of their blind support.

It’s almost like the Feds are dropping seedlings all over the U.S. to sprout brownskins everywhere and these types of weeds multiply fast plus they don’t pay taxes and use up vast resources. Can you think of a better way to bankrupt a nation? I can’t. This is from Soro’s playbook. Kille sovereignty, remove borders and put all nations under one governing authority. Before all this mess America was a strong nation that would have stood against this very type of warped thing so we had to be taken out. Enter a Sunni Muslim pretending to be Christian who was educated and indoctrinated with socialist principles and unafraid to use Cloward - Piven to do it.

I think there’s a concerted effort to transport them to conservative areas, and for a couple of reasons -

to “punish” those areas with criminals,
to skew the voting demographics of those areas toward the gov’t party.

If the ghettos here are the best we have to offer our citizens, I say ship them all to the ghettos.

The point is a lot people in the ghettos (mostly Obama supporters) aren’t happy with poverty, crime, schools, etc.

Why should these illegals receive an immediate better quality of life than our own citizens? This should make a lot of Obama’s supporters very mad at him.

People should be standing up to protest this.
But their ire should not be directed at these kids. They are merely trying to flee horrific conditions existing in their homelands and are as much victims in this mess as we are.

The REAL villain is that bastard in the Oval Office, his collection of racist Alenskyite goons from Holder on down, the morons among the American public who voted for him, and his nearly equally culpable predecessors going back to Bush I.

The sufferings of these kids and the cost of alleviating them should not be shouldered by the American Public, but by the Mexican, Honduran and Guatemalan governments - modern day Dons who collborate with gang members down there.

FOX News pointed out last night that WE pay MILLIONS to the Mexican Govrnment to train THEIR military.

MEANWHILE the Mexican government is an active collaborator in facillitating the erosion of our borders while it illegally detains an American Military hero.

Yeah, protesting while visibly armed is a major “next step”.

Yeah and it feeds into the MSM, DOJ and DHS narrative that the tea party is nothing but domestic racist/terrorists.

This is very bad optics and runs the danger of alienating the average American who agrees with the protest intent but is mortified by the sight of armed citizens presumably taking the law into their own hands.

Leave the damn guns home guys, all you are doing is giving Holder and Obama your ammo. Its the narrative they want and you are handing it to them. IMHO

All protests in Michigan are armed. We even open carry in the state capitol building. People learn to get over it or they get used to wearing adult diapers.

I don’t agree.

That’s just playing into the liberal idea that the only legitimate people that can be armed are agents of the gov’t.

“This is very bad optics and runs the danger of alienating the average American who agrees with the protest intent but is mortified by the sight of armed citizens presumably taking the law into their own hands.”

Liberals have scared people into always worrying about what others will think. It’s part of the Alinsky plan - make people think that what they are feeling is abnormal and they are the only ones feeling that way. Make them feel isolated, and therefore, powerless.

We need to quit buying into the liberal brainwashing.

Yup, open carry has always been legal in Michigan but sometime over the last 30 years liberals managed to convince people that it was illegal. Fortunately that attitude is being broken.

Which will create ten-fold more armed protesters, who will be looking to do more than voice an opinion.

Taxes are still high but we’re working on it. Mostly rural and increasingly rural as you go north. Some of the best deer hunting in the nation. There are the Porcupine mountains in the upper peninsula but they’re really just big hills.

GOP controls the state government. Plenty of RINOs but its an improvement over democrats.

Indeed.
But given how the federal government looks to be looking to provoke hostilities it might not bode well.
Now is the time to be working on building yourself both logistics and intel networks.
