Portland day labor protest: Part tres


You will notice that the driver here, one of the few who dared to pick someone up, is covering his face with a piece of paper. If only there was some other way to identify him when we send these pictures to ICE and BOLI...

Oh wait, I got his license plate!! (which also, ironically, has the name "Dave Smith" on it)

I would recommend that everyone read the Fishwrapper version of our protest yesterday:

Protesters target day-labor site in Portland
Sign-toting, flag-waving Oregonians protesting illegal immigrants who work and use public services moved their protests to a day-labor pickup site in Portland for the first time Saturday.

Tensions rose when a few of the laborers threw rocks toward protesters but didn't hit anybody. A Portland police officer stationed nearby told them to stop.

"It was definitely a successful day," said Rick Hickey of Salem, vice president of Oregonians for Immigration Reform. "We had several contractors slow down and look like they were going to stop and pick people up, but they didn't. We spooked them."

There is also a part in the story that quotes the rantings of this man pictured here:

He was clearly an unstable person and screamed at us for quite some time while the illegal aliens clapped and cheered. I sincerely hope that this man becomes their official spokesman and does public speaking on behalf of illegal aliens everywhere.
NOTE: Audio and video will be posted soon.


Since a majority of Oregonians (and American citizens) agree with our position on illegal immigraton we think that publicity is our best friend. Rick Hickey (VP, Oregonians for Immigration Reform) gives an interview to Channel 8.

Alright, blogger having some problems uploading pictures again. Part quatro will (finally) have the pictures of our trip to the Democrat call center/voluteer building.

Dave Smith is the name of a dealership, I think, in Idaho.

yep, Dave Smith Motors is located in Kellogg, ID. The largest Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep Dealer in the world.

Point taken, thankfully the interested authorities can simply look up the registered owner by his plate number.

Unrelated, but the Oregonian is supporting Ron Saxton for governor! What the hell?

I mean, I'm glad, but I thought they were supposed to be liberal... hmmm...

You should have me come over there and protest with you - I am bilingual. I can shout their asses down in their native tongue. lol

Daniel, if you by some chance ever see any company logo on the vehicle, get a photo of that information too. If for some reason the "authorities" don't do anything about the day laborers, at least we can identify the company and boycott/blacklist them and put them on the wall of shame.

I find the Lib Screamer's Pink and Blue shirt looking as part of an institutional uniform.

Something intended to draw attention in public.

Perhaps a walk-away who found an unlocked gate?

I volunteer to help with him receiving more shock therapy.

The Oregonian supporting Ron Saxton was strange. I usually vote the opposite of the Oregonian endorsements. Maybe that is their strategy... I guess I'll have to vote for Teddy now. haha

Good luck having them do anything about it though, being that there is no proof that the worker he picked up is undocumented.

I'm sure that was a typo. You meant to say "illegal", not "undocumented".

bjdorr said...

Maybe the day laborer he picked up might be a sex offender or a rapist?

bjdorr said...

Excuse me, an undocumented sex offender or rapist, I should say.

You might want to check the Oregon Sex Offender Web site. Knowing that these guys more than likely may possess the Mexico Matricula Card because they may have no other legal documentation, their identity is about as valid as a Bill Clinton three-dollar bill. Isn't that illegal? SEE THERE'S ANOTHER CRIME--FAKE ID!

Do they sell branding irons with "illegal alien" stamped on the end?

"Food-Stamp Program Finally Speaks Their Language"

http://www.latimes.com/la-me-stamp13oct13,0,4805737,full.story

"Though it goes against the conventional wisdom of anti-illegal immigration supporters, those who enroll the poor in the federal food stamp program say they've struggled for years to get immigrant Latino families signed up.

Now a Spanish-language news report and television ad campaign have spurred thousands of immigrants in Orange County over the last several weeks to contact a nonprofit organization that offers a Spanish-language class called "Food Stamps in Four Hours."...

"They won't come on their own," said Jerry Sanders, food bank manager of the nonprofit Community Action Partnership of Orange County in Garden Grove. "They come from countries where they think the government isn't to be trusted. They figure there's a catch to free food."

Advocates say immigrants, if here illegally, are also worried about being deported if they apply for food stamps. Or they fear jeopardizing a pending application for residency or citizenship. Illegal immigrants can apply on behalf of their minor children here legally.

Other immigrants say they were simply embarrassed.

"The Mexican man is macho. He doesn't want to come to this country and beg," said Alfonso Chavez, the Community Action Partnership's outreach coordinator. "I tell them this is a program that will help the children. The kids are American-born, and they have a right to this program.""

So watch out, those are macho men you are up against there... And they don't trust government...

Sounds like they sould all sign up on free Republic...

Yes, I covered that topic on Redline.

Since "communist" is used in this forum to brand virtually anyone to the left of Mary Starrett, could someone please explain who the folks with the green caps are? Do they have a name, web site? Thanks.

BEAR said...

yeah, they are the Commie Traitors@Commie Traitors.com(mie)

Daniel said...

They are the National Lawyers Guild. They want to change our "economic" and "political system."

What you have to understand, Anon 5:58, is that these guys equate any form of socialist reform with communism. They are quick to label any moderate or progressive as far left. Any form of socializing medicare, public transportation, or any taxes that take from the wealthiest businesses and redistribute to the poorest 15% is communist to these guys.

Playin', I used to work in L.A., Long Beach, Orange County and San Diego before I came up here. I can tell you that not so long ago, illegal aliens feared coming out for any government service (I work in government). When I got here to Oregon, I immediately noticed a difference that has only worsened with time. Illegals here are emboldened and empowered to seek public services. I have yet to run into any that fear government action for seeking government services (yes, I am still in government). Granted, I don't work at the DMV or the office of elections, so I don't know what goes on there. But every time I go into the DMV around here, I feel like I am in the minority being both white and and English speaker. What is happening in Oregon and a good part of this country is absolutely dispicable. One day, we will reap what we sow. And it won't be pretty.

Bryan, Yes income re-distribution is Communism.
If I work harder or smarter than the average Liberal, what in the Hell right does MY Gov't have to take it from me and my Family to give to the lazy bum? (or if the gov't will take care of me why should I leave the couch?)

Ask the N. Koreans about Gov't Healthcare. OH WAIT, you can't! it is not allowed.

Brian, easy question....N. Korea or S. Korea, where would you and most people on Earth rather live?

That is the difference between Socialism and Capitolism.
(you wouldn't have a computer or web access or be allowed to say those stupid things you say).

Bryan Saxton said...

Anon, you crack me up.

A) Learn how to spell capitalism (it's with an A, not an O).

B) Income redistribution is not communism... 100% income redistribution is.

C) There's a pretty large difference between Socialism and Communism.

D) North Korea is not communist. They are a dictatorship living under the guise of communism.

E) As far as saying stupid things goes, lack of understanding the differnece between communism and socialist reform (or state capitalism for that matter) ranks pretty high on that list.
