The host says, what do you want? His response, "we EXPECT" Congress to do its job and...legalize the hard working undocumented people here. He likened it to Slavery. My heart is still pounding and I'm still shouting my mouth off. Someone tell me the story about how the slaves voluntarily came here and voluntarily put themselves into chains and let their owners whip them, I seem to have forgotten that one.

The Mexican constitution does not allow foreigners to participate in the political affairs of the country.

That ban applies to participation in demonstrations.

Congress and the President are listening to their illegal alien constituency. They must be because they sure are NOT listening to me. Well they can get all their donations and votes from their illegal alien constituency. I gave all my money to the Minutemen and my votes will go to those that back American citizens or will be left blank.
What's that? Illegal aliens can't vote? Well just dam!

I'm against this BS for sure.

But I'm wondering why they're doing this? Maybe it's more than just votes. I read a stat where this country will have a worker shortage of about 30 million people when the baby-boom generation fully retires. And since we've aborted about 30 million people where else to get them from but Mexico.

Not agreeing with this at all, but was wondering if anyone else has come to this conclusion???

The more ILLEGALS demand this the more the probability it WON'T happen. THIS pisses LEGAL citizens off and NEW citizens that went through the LEGAL process.

I say, KEEP DEMANDING THINGS!!!

Exactly, how exactly is Jesse Jackson allowing some Mexican pimp steal slavery as an issue from the black race hustlers?? Hey Jesse, el huge-o strategic mistake-o to allow any group of criminals to compare their plight to that of slavery where people where killed, raped, shackled, lynched, bred for labor and forced to endure all manner of abuse and torture.

And don't forget the slaves were brought here on big ships Unvoluntarily. The illegals can just go home, noone asked them to come or is forcing them to stay.

Look, a sovereign nation has a duty to its people to screen who's coming in here. We have plenty of people to work, now and in the future. If we need more, we'll let people in, but we'll decide who.

This is pure insanity. Look, I'm a bleeding heart ok; hell I'd be considered liberal by most on this site. But this is pure mayhem, pure nonsense!

These people have invaded our nation. They spit in the face of the my family who came here before them. The families of those waiting to come here. There are people dying, literally dying to come here, and these people are jumping the line.

There is no excuse. NONE. I'm done. I'm furious. It would be one thing to say, hey we know we broke the law, forgive us, we'll do the right thing, we love this country, etc. That's not what's going on.

>>My impression is that this is going to backfire.<<

I agree. This isn't like the civil rights marches where people knew in their hearts that it was wrong to have segregations laws. The main effect here is raise awareness of how darn many illegals we have and they are not quiet.

Anybody that is more inclined to grant amnesty now is stupid.

Sorry, but frankly, I don't think most people here will do squat. Seriously, too much TV on, too many new CDs to buy. Look, I'm friends with lots of people who are "outraged" about various issues. The most I've ever got them to do is vote.

I never, never ever ever thought I'd say this. Poppy, God rest your soul. You were right. The great generation was the last generation, it's a double black diamond down hill slope from here.

I like your name CommieCutter, especially in answer to your question,"Why?". Every A Freeper, every American should read should be reading MAO,THE UNKOWN STORY by Jung Chang and Jon Halliday. Mao's rise to power. Character-wise he was Bill Clinton's twin brother. Stupid,selfish, self-absorbed, lazy. No ideology other than self. He knew that to get what he wanted he had to destroy the Chinese culture and family. Read the book and you'll think you're reading the newspaper. I'm a realist, and an avid reader. It's the most frightening book I've ever read.

Sorry, I'm just really fired up right now. I've been real open minded about this issue, and super sensitive to the human beings behind the rhetoric. I've been willing to come down the middle and compromise. I've been open to the guest worker program. I've been a decent guy about this, but now I've had it. I've had it. "we EXPECT," mexican flags, national anthem in Spanish, no gringo day. Spend two minutes on a yahoo message board about immigration and your heart will explode.

Sorry you got the blunt end of it.

HE IS SO TRUE. No meddlin here in Old Mexico for people who weren't born here eating nopales and chomping jalapeños. If you are foreign, STAY away from protests, they have cameras, and act....quick, 24 hours you are at the border looking for a new homeland.

It does smack in the face to those dear people who tried in a nice way to get to the USA and were denied visas. In Mexico people generally have learned if they pitch a fit, and make a squawl, they can get lawmakers to bend. Let's see if the SOLDIERS on Capitol Hill have the...... oh well.

So.....third-worlders come here on their own volition, get free health care and free education, and make more money in one day than they made in an entire month in their home country and this burrito-brain has the nerve to equate their situation with slavery?

Also, in LA, the police will be out in force, keeping the freeways open and towing cars (and holding them for 30 days), which is imperative.

If, however, it is done with the intention of making us mad as hell, then they are not going to get a reaction from me.

I think that is definitely part of it. Abortions = NO new citizens = need for more workers to keep the system going. Same problem France/ Europe is having. We are, imho, a whole lot better off with Catholic hispanics coming up than Muzzies, like they have. I think this is why there is such ambivalence about this.

The Latino vote is still largely potential. It won't be really significant intil about 2012, really an important block until about 2020. Those who wish to counter this must act now.

Yee of much faith, I'm sorry I don't agree. The GOP will cave, millions of people will receive what others have died for, paid tens of thousands for, and are dying and begging for.

The media has saved the Democrat minority, soon to be a majority.

Bush finally grew a pair on the issue of rewriting the national anthem and singing it in Spanish. He even came out and said illegals out to learn to speak English! Could this be a start? I doubt it. I think he'll continue to push his amnesty program.

Personally, I blame this whole mess on our universities (especially Berzerkly), who are teaching the teachers who teach our children, for the self-serving gift that keeps on giving known as 'Social Constructionism' and 'Cultural (and Moral) Relativity'.

I find it interesting that one never hears about the dialectical opposite of 'Social Constructionism' (pdf) [beliefs are caused by social interests rather than justified by evidence and reason], 'Essentialism' [the shocking idea that an external world exists independently of our representations of it; that there is a human nature given independently of 'social constructionsism'], obviously social constructionism allows socialists to ignore nature and facts and thereby see and attempt to create their own reality.

I'm not unconvinced 'social constructionism' isn't the result of excessive pot or LSD consumption, as it was developed in the '60s.

This is the foundation upon which 'gender studies' rests and which allows them to try to recreate gender in their own image while wrecking all kinds of other pathological havoc on society.

Our schools are damaging our children.

That would be nice, however we are seeing evidence that Rino's and the Leftist MSM are actually trying to incite violence.

Exhibit A - Arnold uses an LA Times article to publicize death threats against Latino leaders exactly 1 week prior to this boycott.

Exhibit B - Whorealdo Rivera is advertising his Monday program this weekend. The main topic is could these demonstrations escalate into something else ?
