    Six arrested at immigration rally

    And so it starts....

The protest, organized by the Service Employees International Union, was one of dozens held around the country Friday to mark the one-year anniversary of the Senate passing a sweeping immigration bill, which would pave the way for 11 million illegal immigrants to stay in the country. But House Republicans have refused to take up similar legislation, angering many immigration activists.




    In Washington, immigration activists also occupied House offices, The Hill reports.Royce, a Republican in a district where more than half of his constituents are Latino or Asian, has been the target of repeated immigration protests, sit-ins, and fasts, according to the Orange County Register. On Friday, many of the protesters arrived on buses from outside the district.

    “The bulk of the protestors were not Rep. Royce’s constituents and arrived on Chula Vista Tour buses organized by the SEIU.

    The SEIU being organized to gather on the issue of immigration means that the next months leading up to the mid-terms is going to be dominated by the media around a primary issue - Immigration. No accident, the SEIU being involved is purposeful and what Nancy Pelosi labeled "astro-turf" may grow in size. This may be a Democratic tactic to overshadow any other issue and attempt to make the mid-terms a singular issue. An interesting tactic but fraught with high blow back potential.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    They sure learn fast about the ins and outs of causing problems, don't they? Maybe they should go home and apply the same tactics in their own countries. We're such pushovers to be intimidated by them!

    The Mexican army helicopter attack on U.S. Border Patrol agents on the border was just a diversionary tactic while SEIU thugs/foot soldiers lay siege on Rep. Royce's office.

    They really need to change the narrative from obummerscare, trading prisoners for deserters, scrubbing hard drives, and blaming YouTube videos before Nov.

    Has Bergdahl been convicted of desertion?

    Last I recall our nation was still free despite your ilk. Hence if I want to call him a deserter based on what I believe I am free to do so. Tough for you isn't it?

    No, it's not tough for me, I'm not Bergdahl. It's inappropriate and un american to do so but knock yourself out.
