Skip to comments.Houston Protest Against Immigration Reform/Amnesty & Border Surge
Posted on 07/18/2014 2:59:02 PM PDT by humblegunner
Today at the Mexican Consulate just south of downtown Houston a protest
against the illegal alien border surge was staged by concerned patriots.
Apparently the word got out to the opposition forces. There were 25 to 30
illegals and associated supporters there as well. Our side numbered from
40 to 50 while I was on site. We were staged on opposite sides of the street.
The illegals (they proclaimed themselves so, chanting "undocumented and unafraid")
had a small public address system and had a designated wise-ass on the mike
leading chants and taunts which actually were pretty comedic.
The public address system:
The Consulate is apparently constructed of stacked-up double-wide trailers and has a spiffy billboard in the yard.
Back to the good guys:
The cops had a load of barricades delivered and set them up on our side first:
Then they set up barricades on the illegal's side. I thought this
to be a bit futile as they all have a proven ability to hop fences.
And here is a bit of video
Some media were present and interviewed folks on both sides. I'll see if I can
locate some of that and post it down-thread. Overall I'd say our message was
heard, if only at a local level. Which beats the hell out of silence.
Eagles Up, y'all.
Seriously, excellent stand, guys. Get out in front of this and let the invaders know that they won't go unopposed.
Thanks for sharing.
“Undocumented and Unafraid” That illegal alien needs to be thrown over the border face first.
Thank you and all the patriots for being there.
Excellent! Thanks for the ping.
Love the pics. Love the spirit and, I especially love the hilarious commentary!
Thanks for posting and thanks for showing up. Like you said...it beats silence.
The signs (on our side) look great, too.
On to Conroe?
I thought that everybody in Houston was equal?
Remember any? Were they suitable for this God-fearing site?
Then they set up barricades on the illegal's side. I thought this to be a bit futile as they all have a proven ability to hop fences.
Kudos to you and your fellow patriots.
One of their chants was “We are HOME!” so I figure they must all live under the freeway there.
Yeah....the “undocumented and unafraid” is something, isn’t it?
They aren’t afraid of anything, anymore...like committing crimes, since they get off scott free - even rewarded (paid with our tax $$).
Should have been arrested on the spot.
They hollered about “You’re all immigrants too!”
I figured yeah, I drove in from outside Houston. So I gave ‘em that one.
They hollered at us for being racists which was pretty good,
since we had four or five black guys and they had none.
They made fun of our “No se puede!” signs because there was
no upside down exclamation point in front. Said they were “misspelled”.
I didn’t have the patience to school them on the difference between spelling and punctuation.
You’re gonna be heard from the front page of Free Republic now. I just bumped you.
Great job, Houston!!
God bless Texas!!
I agree with your description of the mexican consulate - what a crappy looking building and sign!
LOL....your comebacks had to be entertaining for our side. Love it!!
These are small numbers, and America is distracted. Wouldn’t a large, planned event have more impact?
We'll have some reporting in tomorrow from the DFW area.
They pushed him 'way off to the edge of the group.
Way to go!!!
Maybe these events going on today and tomorrow are just an appetizer.
Don't axe me, Mongo only pawn in game of life.
Good work, humblegunner!!
Barricades? REALLY? That’s a riot in itself.
That weirdo looking dude with the sign “No, No si se puede” makes me proud...
Fk the illegals.
They spit in the face of my friends who toiled for years to become an American.
A few are from Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela and Mexico.
One friend from Australia was never sure he would become an American, even though I assured him that we consider Auzzies our brothers and there were only some formalities to go through.
He celebrates 4th of July with us and loves it.
I’d like to erase that stupid accent of his but, at least it’s not British.
Then there are my friends from Johannesburg. White, they may be but, they are now true blue African Americans.
Good job HG.
There's always some crazy folks show up at these things.
BTW, did you have a bottle rocket fight this year?
Budget cutbacks.. you know.
Prolly spent on the crayons you used for the signs.
You are awesome man.
You put your money where your mouth is and wear your patriotism proudly.
I’d love for someone to put a picture of the illegal *chilrens* on that guy’s sign...
Keep up the fire!
It was a good time, I’d highly recommend it.
Wonderful! Thank you Patriots!
USA Today has video.. they kind of missed the high points:
I work in the south Texas oil patch.
I travel Hwy. 59 south between Goliad and Beeville every single afternoon. So far this week, I’ve counted no less than 14 busloads on Hwy. 59 heading north to Houston. I assume it’s Houston as that’s what most of em have posted up on their front marquee. These look like private tour buses with no company name, blacked-out windows, etc.
The RATS have convinced the American blacks to abort millions of their offspring, enslave the rest to the government and now replace any that might be working with illegals. Yet, they’re too blind to see what the RATS have done to them and continue to support these traitors....sad, very sad black people....wake up!!!
Thanks for posting the national vid link for the Houston protest.
I see the pro-illegal guy used the typical lefty spiel/line ... “for the cost of one F-15, we can feed and clothe ALL of these....children. We’re the richest country in the world”.
Maybe this guy...and all the other lefties...need to listen to what 0’s DHS Sec’y said about this...that it’s costing $250 to $1,000 per day to house each of the immigrant children who have recently arrived at the border.
And, for that matter, why don’t we take that “same money” and take care of our vets and our own homeless, already here, Mr Lefty?
I’d like someone to ask these fools just exactly how many “children” of the world they think we need to take in. When will it ever be enough, for them? Never.
“...Fk the illegals. They spit in the face of my friends who toiled for years to become an American. A few are from Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela and Mexico....”
Yes Sir! There is a right way (legal) and a wrong way (illegal) to do this. Either we are a nation of laws or we’re not. Presently, it appears that we’re not. Since we’re not, perhaps the few of us that work, pay taxes and abide by the law of the land just all need to quit paying taxes since the country is now basically “lawless”.
SCREAMING, YELLING, AND LOTS OF HOT TEMPERS TOOK OVER THE STREET IN FRONT OF THE MEXICAN CONSULATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON.I bolded the last sentence, and posted it in caps as it is that way the whole article is written.
IN THE MEANTIME, BRAZORIA COUNTY COMMISSIONERS WILL CONSIDER A RESOLUTION NEXT WEEK TO BAN ANY OF THE UNACCOMPANIED MINORS FROM COMING INTO THEIR COMMUNITY.
[Disclaimer, I don't consider all caps to be screaming, doesn't hurt my ears at all...]
I snipped out the middle two paragraphs, but it is worth it to look at the short article.
I wanted to post the last paragraph because of it's positive take on the situation.
The video shows our side quite well describing the problem
Awesome but biased.
That was right after I left, I passed miss Anonymous on the way out.
Woo hoo! Great results!!
And we’re now on the road. See you tonight in Sacramento!!
In my world, ICE would show up detain them all and chck to see if they are here legally. If the are here illegally they immideatley get loaded in a bus and driven to Mexico. Personal possession left behind, too bad. If you followed the laws you wouldn’t be in that situation.
Good job freepers!
Well, you can’t get away from the bias...
OK see ya there!
