The two "reporters" from The Oregonian went and talked to every person on the side of the illegal alien day laborers who could speak English. Those of us from our side (again, that's the side of following the law) who wanted to say something to the media had to approach them.
This guy says that "our work counts"... yes, it counts as another crime you've committed.
And when I did I was met with almost complete silence other than to be questioned about "is this as many protestors as you are going to have?"It didn't matter that I explained that all it takes is one person with a camera and one person with a sign to stop this nonsense, it didn't matter that I pointed out that these workers had no drugscreen, no liability insurance, would pay no taxes, would send money out of the country, that statistically a majority of them are illegal aliens and there is a Labor Ready just down the street where workers actually have filled out paperwork and are waiting for a job.
The woman in the purple jacket and the man with the cameras are from The Oregonian.
These crack reporters watched as the illegal alien day laborers cursed at us, flipped us off, grabbed their crotches, made signs calling the USA "fascist", hid their faces from cameras and covered license plates up.
We were polite, respectful and effectively accomplished what we set out to do: keep illegal alien day laborers from getting work and bringing this issue to the public's attention.
