Mass Protests Scheduled

On Friday and Saturday this week, there will be nationwide protests taking place in various cities across the country, hoping to bring enough pressure to stop the surge of illegal immigrants. Protesters plan to speak to the larger problem of our unsecured borders and influx of immigrants, as well as publicly saying “no” to the housing and sheltering the illegal detainees in their cities. Along with Murrieta, California, other cities including Westminster, Maryland; Oracle, Arizona; Vassar, Michigan; Greece, New York have also blocked the importation of illegal aliens into their communities.

William Gheen, President of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and one of 11 sponsors of the protest explains:

[T]he mother of all protests promises to be Friday and Saturday. It’s dubbed the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge, and it’s gaining support by the hour, said William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and one of 11 sponsors. The main organizers are ALIPAC, Overpasses For America and MakeThemListen.com, Gheen said.

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country. Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion,” Gheen said. “At last count we had 257 communities signed up, but that was two hours ago. We’re expecting more than 300 and updating the event list every two hours.”

Further, organizers of the mass protests want to send a clear message to the Republicans in Congress:

Gheen said he’s hoping to send a message to “amnesty” politicians in both parties. He wants to counteract the recent surge of illegals at the southern border with a “surge” of his own.

“We’re hoping to get an American surge that will manifest in protests and the defeat of more Eric Cantor-type Republicans that still have GOP primaries and the Democrats in November that support Obama and his amnesty plans.

“He said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., is tops on the list of Republicans he’d like to see booted from Washington. Alexander faces a challenge in the Aug. 7 primary from small businessman and state legislator Joe Carr, who has the backing of the tea party. He said 40 Republicans in the House also “need to go” because they are pro-amnesty politicians “playing the role” of conservatives.

“That’s why we’re involved in this historic protest, to help turn the tide in this,” he said. “That’s what they fear the most. They don’t fear people standing on an overpass swinging a flag. What they fear is when they know the next stop is the election booth and that’s our message. We want everybody to support these protests but we want them to understand we need to get them involved in these elections and the defeat of many of Obama’s amnesty allies.”

Gheen, who said he has worked as a consultant on 40 political campaigns, predicts this November will go down in history as a monumental house-cleaning in Congress.

“I am predicting that it is now possible to sweep more Democrats out of office than was done in the historic revolutions of 1994 and 2010,” he said. “We have to elect so many grassroots and populist conservatives that we can get the amnesty supporters out of office, and that includes John Boehner. Obama is doing this because he does not fear John Boehner. Republicans like Boehner and Rick Perry are not really Obama’s opponent. They just play those roles on television. They’re like people who can’t act well enough for Hollywood but they play characters on television for political purposes.”

  2. On Thursday and Friday this week, there will be nationwide protests taking place in various cities across the country, hoping to bring enough pressure to stop the surge of illegal immigrants.

    You’re being played.

    The true purpose of these protests is to try to see to it that there is no change in the law whatsoever, so that the corruption and the arrangements now engendered by the law can continue.

    And I wonder also how anyone be oblivious that protests can also draw counterprotests.

  3. It’s actually Friday and Saturday, the 18th and 19th. Change made in post.

    Sammy, do you really believe that? I believe of it politicians, certainly, who are benefiting (or will benefit) from this surge, as well as cartels and various governments, however, do you really put the American citizenry in the same group? Really??

    Sammy – Why would you believe anybody is oblivious? We all saw the Open Borders idiots arrested in Murrieta.

  9. I envision Massachusetts taking a huge quantity of these illegal aliens.
    They have been at Otis Air Force base for weeks. And they delivered another farrow yesterday.

  10. SPQR,

    There is a Facebook page here.

    WND has the original piece.

    It appears Rush was a big part of it happening with his commentary on cities who managed to keep them from having to receive the importation of the illegal aliens.

  11. The current law is awful, bringing in dependents and keeping out workers and pretending that Madagascar and Cambodia should have equal access as Mexico.

    And yet…

    It is almost as if President Obama is intent on driving as many people as possible away from immigration reform by demonstrating his utter disregard for American sovereignty. There is no way that I would trust him to enforce a law, even if I liked ALL of it.

    His press spokesman actually said today that the feds could not inform local governments of where they were going to place these children, since they were “bound by law” to respect the kid’s “privacy rights.”

    When it suits his purpose, the law is a straightjacket, when not, not. He’s making the cases where it is a talking point to counteract calls he stop ignoring other laws. But anyone who isn’t a lying sack of spit knows that he only obeys the law when it’s convenient.

    Chaos Umpire, indeed.

  12. Here is an interactive map showing the locations being considered, those that have pushed back, and those locations that have been the recipients of illegal aliens.

  13. It’s like we have Donald Segretti in charge of immigration policy.

  14. I keep saying it:
    If we secure the border, all immigration issues are temporary (1 generation, max.)
    If we do not secure the border, all immigration issues are permanent

    David Jay (b6c96a)

  15. vota, i hope you’re here in Lost Angels, so you can come to the protest and attack me in person.

    that would ensure you really were permanently gone from this blog… so bring it on, please. 8-)

  16. This will get the same level of MSM coverage as the annual march on Washington to protest Roe v. Wade.

    Show your evidence or shut up.

  18. Were you asleep, or did you miss the Tea Party protests that resulted in the biggest turnover in congressional seats since the 30s? Where did that get us?

    Systematically and blatantly repressed, with the general sheeplike public rbelieving we’re nazis.

    That is reality here on Planet Earth.

    We need to keep fighting, if only so future generations can maybe learn from what happened, but it seems to me that it’s over and everyone else knows it.

  19. @11: “There is no way that I would trust him to enforce a law, even if I liked ALL of it.”

    Of course not. Obama doesn’t even consistently enforce laws that he likes, such as the employer mandate under Obamacare.

  20. You’ll hear plenty from lefties about how this judge, Cormac Carney, was appointed by George W. Bush

    I recall right after the judge overseeing Proposition 8 handed down his ruling against it, he was characterized in the media as a Republican. A quick review of his political sentiments dating back only about 20 years revealed his opinion that if the city of San Francisco were to enact strict anti-gun laws, they could easily be deemed as constitutional. Of course, the fact the guy was also gay made it a given that regardless of his party affiliation, he was of the left. So I have a hunch that Carney probably got in under the ideological wire, doing a watusi to the “compassionate conservative” bar set by George W Bush.

    A few decades ago, if not more recently, the prevailing attitude of many in the DC party circuit was that when it came to the appointment of certainly Supreme Court justices, it was improper or rude for the elite doing the screening of such nominees to delve into their philosophy or ideology.

    Pffft to that.

  21. Oops, wrong thread. LOL

  22. i’m not feeling this as far as a let’s take it to the streets y’all thang goes

    this immigration thing is serious

    the fascists and the occupy monkeys and the feminists et cetera have sucked all the potency out of the whole conventional protest thing I think to where the marchy marchy protests trivialize whatever it is they’re protesting

    that Glenn Beck Sarah Palin thing didn’t help none either

  23. Mr. Feets – Don’t forget about the Purple People Beaters during the Summer of 2009. A lot of times now progressives have to rent a mob and the peeps have no idea what they’re being to protest.

  24. It would appear this thing is pushing buttons:

  25. it’s just all so tired and done to death Mr. daley

    at the end of the day it’s all reduced to cable news fodder

    and you know what

    I don’t have cable

    and you know what that’s ok

  26. looks to me like the “white house” is leveraging its alliance with the “cnn” to kneecap this “martin o’malley” who might very well have the audacity to confront america’s favorite marxist squaw in the 2016 presidential contest

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  27. 24-gary, thanks for the post. Gives me faith that the standoff was won by the people of the U.S.A.
    This should be shown around the world.

  28. 28. And y’all know it won’t end there. Backbone beats filthy lucre every time they face off.
