An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters.
While Bree Sison of CBS Boston estimated that the gathering drew hundreds of people, Jeff Kuhner, the host of WRKOs The Kuhner Report, who organized the rally, put the number closer to 10,000 people.
People carrying signs that said Deport illegals, and Americans before illegals stood just outside the State House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kuhner told Boston.com that he himself is a legal immigrant.
Kuhner came to the United States in the 1990s on a work visa as he worked towards a Ph. D. Still a Canadian citizen, he was issued a green card in 2006. Kuhner said he is currently in the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.
Ive never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite, Kuhner said of Gov. Deval Patricks decision for Massachusetts to offer shelter to unaccompanied minors.

Then why do the vote liberal?
Not all of us vote liberal!
Pictures? Report? Give, Cotton.
Is the GOP Gov or Senate candidate running on the issue against whoever; and Markey?
Gabriel Gomez lost white and Hispanic voters in the 2013 special MA Senate race as the pro-amnesty candidate.
There are about 7 million people in Mass....a few million of them are conservatives. Not enough to carry most of the vote. Simple as that.
Pics and video here. Definitely more than a few hundred.
Meanwhile, we are being called “scaremongers” in the press because we are concerned about our schoolchildren come September, and still being blamed because of our “insatiable appetite for drugs.”
They grab one another’s arguments and print them all over the place.
I am so sick of the anti-American bias of the press, I am thinking of walking around with an American flag.
This is the same state that went ballistic when school busing came to their towns.
Do you really think its safe to gather every conservative in Boston in one small area?
I think we should put up posters like that everywhere.
The Establishment candidate for governor, Charlie Baker, loser from 2010, refused to show up. His opponent in the primary, Mark Fisher, was there and spoke (I met him and gave him a copy of my book).
The primary’s in September. As usual, the Establishment misses an opportunity and doesn’t like associating with us Tea Partiers, even though there’s thousands of votes there.
But thank God for those who were out there today!
Thank you for what you and everyone there did. Sometimes as a conservative it feels very lonely here in Massachusetts, and that photo gives hope. I was working but was with you in spirit!
“Definitely more than a few hundred.”
Oh, there were at least 10,000.
This is a better picture (I’m over on the far right by those two signs on the fence). And across the street, the stairs go down into the Boston Common, where there were more people.
Excellent! Speaking as an old Yankee with roots going back near 400 years, y’all done good! Wish I could have been there.
