Wow, news coverage

Opponents of illegal immigration to rally Friday
Illegal-immigration opponents have a message.

They'll sound it on the steps of the Capitol on Friday during an anti-illegal-immigration rally.

"It's appropriate to hold this rally on the steps of the Capitol because we believe the government of Oregon actively encourages illegal immigration," said Jim Ludwick, the president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform, a nonprofit group that opposes illegal immigration.
OFIR and Citizen Caucus, a conservative group based in Coos County, organized the event. It's set to start at 11 a.m.

It should be a good one, some good speakers and a chance to make a show of numbers. Be there if you can.

One thing about this article though:

Immigrant-rights activists, on the other hand, support legislation passed by the Senate in late May. That bill would give certain non-U.S. citizens living in the country a chance at citizenship.

No quote from any of these "immigrant-rights activists" to support this statement. Why not? Because the pro-illegal alien crowd doesn't like the senate bill. They say it doesn't give enough to illegal aliens and we need to have open borders.

From PCUN:
PCUN and CAUSA cannot support the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 (S 2611), the bill in its current form.

We want a workable and humane solution that rewards work, respects rights, unites families, protects workers, strengthens the economy, and leads to citizenship for immigrants who are here today and those who come in the future.


Translated: the proposal of the Senate is an advance but it is not sufficient

They want amnesty for everyone here and open borders for everyone that is going to come here. Anything less and these criminals and their supporters won't be satisfied... boo hoo.

I will definately be there...PROUDLY!! I know most of you work but this is very important...not just for the issue but for appearences sake. You guys probably know the Statesman-Urinal will not promote much less advertise about the rally, but if there are only a handfull of people there you know full well they will twist it into a joke about the lack of support for the "no amnesty" crowd. Probably will refer to "a small, bigoted, group of people showed up" or something to that effect to de-value the message that we do not want amnesty granted to criminals. I am quite sure a lot of the illegals and their supporters who showed up on the previous rallies and May 1st, either don't work or don't care about their jobs so they walked off anyway. These people know how to organize, they also know how to be vocal and demanding, bitching, whining and complaining when they want the freebies from our government. WE HAVE TO BE JUST AS STRONG AND SHOW UP IN FORCE!!!!! to get our message heard. Acouple of hours shouldn't be a hardship on anybody. PLEASE...BE THERE!!! For the sake and future of your country!!!

MY G-D....Will wonders never cease!!!! I have to edit my first post. I just read todays Statesman-Urinal. THEY ACTUALLY PRINTED AN ARTICLE ON THE UPCOMING RALLY!!!! Too bad none of you took me up on my bet 2 weeks ago for a free haircut because i thought the paper wouldn't print anything on the rally. OH WELL, maybe next time.

Did ya know its a Felony to write a check on your overdrawn account but not if you illegaly enter the USA without authorization.

IIRC, it is not a felony the first time someone enters the USA illegaly, it's a misdemenor; the second time makes it a felony, after which the actor is no longer eligable for citizenship.
According to the present immigration laws, that is.
