San Diegans Partake in Immigration Protests
NBC-7 San Diego ^ | July 19, 2014 | By Monica Garske

San Diegans gathered Saturday morning to take part in a nationwide protest against immigration reform amid the border crisis.

With American flags and opposition signs in hand, dozens of protestors united along the Interstate 8 overpass in La Mesa near Severin Drive to voice their opinions on illegal immigration.

“We think our border needs to be better protected,” said Ocean Beach resident Lucy Ingalls.

“Crime is coming in, we have disease coming in, we have mothers sending their kids off by themselves to get sick and die on their own and I think that’s a huge crime. I think we need to care about these children,” she continued.

Melanie Kortlang, also opposed to illegal immigration, said that for her, the issue really hits close to home.

“I have suffered the cost of illegal immigration. My daughter was hit and killed by an illegal alien and I made a promise to her that I will not let her be forgotten,” she told NBC 7.

“It’s time that this country takes a stand and says enough is enough. Let’s start taking care of our own kids. We have hungry, homeless children on our streets here. We have our veterans who are dying on the streets,” Kortlang added. “We’ve had enough. It’s time to secure our borders and enforce the laws. Let’s take care of our own first.”

Their supposed “buyer’s remorse” is really all about covering their own behind.

Although the left thinks we’re stupid .. they’re the ones who were stupid enough to vote for somebody with no experience .. and with years of un-American parenting .. and now they want everybody to just ‘forget the whole thing’ .. ‘we really didn’t mean it’ .. a pox on all their houses.
