Protests Across US Over Arizona Immigration Law (Estefan in L.A.)
BBC ^ | 05/01/10 | Some British Twit

Posted on 05/01/2010 9:10:40 PM PDT by Recovering_Democrat

In Los Angeles, police estimated 100,000 people had joined a march led by singer Gloria Estefan.

"It's the right of every American to protect where they live," she told the crowd.

"But that doesn't give them a reason to place a law that could create racism and discrimination."

The BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani, at the rally, says there were banners calling for a boycott of Arizona, and even one portraying the state's governor, Jan Brewer, as Hitler.

KEYWORDS: estefan; illegals; immigration; law
GLORIA ESTEFAN, she who JUST HOSTED A FUNDRAISER FOR HUSSEIN, is NOW a pro-illegal alien activist. I want to throw up.

Also, the BBC says 100K showed up in L.A.? I heard it was half that.

Finally, Jan Brewer is HITLER...for wanting to enforce the law.

I can hear it now....

They might have predicted 100K but it was half or less from the stories I have seen.

“But that doesn’t give them a reason to place a law that could create racism and discrimination.”

Do you mean like hate crime laws that only caucasians can break, Gloria?

The protests were the usual May Day give me stuff rallies that occur each year.

Just to get a demonstration permit in LA takes 40 business days.

The AZ law is only two business days old.

yep, that’s IT for Estefan...she is entertainment toast (like Dixie Chicks..) for all this lurch to the left...I fault the fact that Rosie O’Donnell is her neighbor in Miami and likes to moon Estefan when she’s in her boat...to damn bad ‘cause I liked Gloria..no more...

I’m sure her father is turning in his grave. Her father fought Castro in the Bay of Pigs and the communists in Vietnam. Now to know his daughter is marching in a marxist influenced parade on a commie holiday is pretty sad.

Many Cuban-Americans have been pretty disappointed with the Estefan’s lately. A couple of posters on the Cuban-American blog www.babalublog.com have even theorized in this thread http://babalublog.com/2010/05/our-gloria-leads-our-dear-dear-latino-brothers-and-sisters-in-los-angeles-may-day-march/ that she may even be contemplating a run for some sort of office in the future because of her involvement in politics lately.

The only problem Gloria is this not these peoples country. They need to go home to their own countries.

Its been a long time since I’ve seen the Grand Canyon. Maybe this summer. I hate crowds anyway.

You are correct.

What is the difference between breaking into my home and breaking into my country?

Look, we invite people into our home. We do not invite criminals into our home.

Hey, BBC, you liberal jerks! Earlier reports said the police estimated the crowd to be maybe 25,000.

I spent a couple of nights at the El Tovar on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon back in the early 1990s. Fantastic place and great dining service and food. A place where Teddy Roosevelt stayed. Huge wooden beams across the ceilings. ...No elevators or central air, but basically what today is considered antique furniture in the tiny bedrooms.

And if someone comes into our home uninvited, we get to throw them out. Why?

Because there IS NO RIGHT to tresspass.

Shut up and sing, Gloria.
