From the Eugene Register Guard:
Anti-immigration activists rallied Saturday in Eugene...
...criticize the Mexican consulate for issuing identification cards to immigrants...
Antonio Guzman of Salem said several Latinos came by to register for basic services. While he disagreed with the anti-immigration faction...
This was written by Jim Feehan. I am quoted several times. Part of my interview with Mr. Feehan can be seen in THIS VIDEO (huge file, it takes a while to download) taken by Vonski.
During this interview I indicated several times that we were protesting illegal immigrantion. The best part is that my motives were questioned by the opposition and I said (in front of Feehan) that "I have the utmost respect for immigrants who come here legally..." and "people who come here legally probably appeciate this country more that 90% of the slack jawed idiots who are sitting at home watching Jerry Springer..."
I have been hearing about the "anti-immigrant" stuff for quite some time now. I think that this puts it to rest as well as shedding some light on the editorial slant of the article.
But, I've always said that any publicity is good, people are able to read that story and understand what we were doing. I'm glad that the article was written... I'm also glad that there is a video recording that puts it to shame.
