    Activists block buses, court to try to stop Ariz. deportations

    Immigrant-rights activists said Friday morning they are blocking buses in Tucson, Ariz., filled with illegal immigrants who are on their way to be being sentenced to jail and then processed for deportation.
    The activists said those on the buses are part of Operation Streamline, which is designed to give illegal immigrants jail sentences before they are deported, as a deterrent to keep them from trying to reenter the country in the future. The activists, though, say the program circumvents due process rights.

    Hard to believe they're circumventing the rights of the accused. Whatever they need to do not to do that? They should implement. It's a great idea.

    It seems like, from your own source, they are not wanting their vote (straw man #1), but rather are upset about the jail sentences. Your source says:

    The activists said those on the buses are part of Operation Streamline, which is designed to give illegal immigrants jail sentences before they are deported, as a deterrent to keep them from trying to reenter the country in the future. The activists, though, say the program circumvents due process rights.
    It helps reading the source before you post it, Wehr - I mean, Erod.

    This is as unproductive and unnecessary as truckers blocking the Beltway is support of right wing policies.

    Certainly all of this unpleasantness would be quickly over if someone would simply explain how it has benefited the United States to have imported 40 million permanent dependency class Mexicans.

    Citizens using civil disobedience to protest laws they perceive as unjust? I'm supposed to be rabidly angry about this?

    so are you saying that all truckers are right wing. Maybe they just think enough is enough.

    Now what he's saying at all. But the position these particular truckers who organized this event have taken is decidedly right-wing.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
