Black Leaders Plan DC Jobs March to Protest Illegal Alien Amnesty

black-unemployment

Scheduled for June 15, the DC March for Jobs is both an attempt to highlight the unemployment plight of the black community and a protest against the disastrous illegal alien amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens that will crater black unemployment.

The Black American Leadership Alliance’s (BALA) letter highlights the fact that amnesty will have a high cost for the black community.

Many studies have shown that black Americans are disproportionately harmed by mass immigration and amnesty. Most policy makers who favor the legalization of nearly 11 million aliens fail to acknowledge that decades of high immigration levels has caused unemployment to rise significantly, most particularly among black Americans.

According to research conducted by University of California San Diego economics Professor Gordon H. Hanson, immigration has accounted for 40% of the 18 percentage point decline in black employment rates, and current immigration proposals are sure to substantially raise these numbers.

Some of the problems with the black community can be put down to the collapse of the manufacturing sector due to globalization and ecological regulations that increased unemployment dramatically and created ghettos. Meanwhile mass migration promoted by the Democrats cut off African-Americans from most low end jobs that weren’t government patronage jobs.

When almost one in seven blacks is unemployed, now is not the time to further saturate the labor force with increased immigration levels and amnesty. If Congress fails to stop this irresponsible legislation, the United States will continue to see more and more blacks out of jobs and unable to support their families. The disastrous effects of illegal immigration to the black community is not simply limited to jobs.

The net effect of black unemployment translates into more broken homes and crimes and more social welfare problems. And those end up hurting everyone.

The letter was signed by a number of black political figures from across the spectrum of the right and the left, including Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, president and founder of the Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), T. Willard Fair President and CEO, Urban League of Greater Miami, Frank Morris, Ph. D. Former Executive Director, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation  and Kevin Jackson, radio host and executive director of The Black Sphere.

The real problem is that the people who claim to be leaders for any particular group or community usually answer to the integrated agenda of the left, rather than that community.

The Black American Leadership Alliance is attempting to change that by representing the actual economic interests of African Americans.

    The fact of the matter is that the left, which claims to care about minorities, particularly the Black community, couldn't care less. In fact, keeping them down, enslaved in a way, suits them well. Having a dependent class means exerting total control is that much easier. To be sure, many minorities are willing to accept the gimme, gimme, but only until they see the goodies can't be spread too thin. Therefore, some are finally waking up.

    In the main, illegal aliens will break America, and this is the left's plan – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/10/20/what-are-the-

    Regardless, rally en mass, your lives depend on it.

  • Parenthetical Phrase

    Illegal immigration and amnesty has had a tiny effect on the black community compared with the effects of fatherless families, gangsta culture, drugs sold in black neighborhoods by blacks, denigration of education, violence, violence and more violence. More blacks have been murdered by other blacks in one year than all the U.S. soldiers in all the years of fighting in Afghanistan. Instead of demonstrations, how about some truth telling from the pulpit of black churches and black organizations?

    • WordTTM

      I believe most of the drugs in the black community come from South America and there are many Latino gangs in all American communities. I don't know if the crime statistics in black neighborhoods are any less than those in Latino communities in the U.S. or south of the border.
      What I do know is that the civil rights people sneak into this country to enjoy, were put in place by organized blacks. The financial aid programs for college people are Dreaming about were established through black efforts. Even the 14th Amendment's birthright that allows illegals to anchor themselves through babies was established for black American concerns.
      It's amazing how people creep across the border after you did the work to make the country livable and don't even have the common courtesy to say thank you. Instead, they mouth off stereotypical statistics and prove to be even more racist than the whites of old.
      Heck, the path to the White House for non whites has even been laid out by black Americans.

      • Close to the edge

        Hey,TTM. Your on point. Between the Cartels spreading all over the US along with Muslum terrorests in place, awaiting the word.In L.A. the largest gang is 20,000+ members.1 gang out of many,and other major cities on the edge.Obama has the authority to deploy military,Lock-down……

  • Brian Williams

    This article is so true. Blacks here in LA have had their jobs stolen and sons and daughters murdered by Mexican gangsters. 18th street, Florencia 13, MS-13 are all flourishing here in LA thanks to Bush and Obamas refusal to build a wall on our southern border and internal enforcement to stop these illegal alien leeches from getting jobs and welfare. It makes me sick to see the ethnic cleansing of Blacks here in LA; Black Americans please help and rally to STOP AMNESTY!! If there were more jobs for Black Americans, there would be stronger families, less violence, less drugs, and more HOPE! Anyone who thinks Blacks are naturally more violent needs to get rid of their white robes and hoods.

  • Eric

    lol most black and Latinos dont even work they both are on welfare because thier lazy.

  • ElizabethMC

    Black marchers have at least one thing in their favor…they won't be called "racist" , because liberals have a clear sense of what each racial group is allowed to do, because liberals see life through the prism of race, because liberals are the worst racists on the planet.

    • Edward Cline

      Quite the contrary, Elizabeth. I'm betting that these black marchers will in turn be called anti-Mexican bigots. That's how liberals smear anyone who protests their agenda or opposes the de-Americanization of America. And you can bet that Obama will be one of the first to call these black marchers "racist."

      • ElizabethMC

        Let's make a bet…:-)…
        It's different when it's just individuals stepping out of line. Liberals happily descend upon them like a swarm of killer bees…..But a significantly large group of blacks is "Untouchable"
        Liberals know better than to offend a voting block.

  • Deerknocker

    Republicans, jump on this opportunity. Let the black community know that the Democrats are pushing amnesty to get votes and really don't care about the effect on black employment. Amnesty is good for Washington Democrats but it will not be good for the country, and it will be terrible for many blacks.

    Immigration

    What an excellent opportunity to pit people of color against one another. The article here unfortunately simplifies a problem which has been created by many social and economic trends and policies. The easiest thing though is to blame somebody. The strategic thing, is to divide a voting population which is already threatening the status quo.

    If you sent all undocumented citizens back today, it would not solve the unemployment problem when many corporations are asking our education systems to be more responsive to their demands and when the big box stores' pricing scenarios send our jobs to sweat shops in other countries to keep wages down and prices low.

    Please, brothers and sisters, don't get caught in this game. Think for yourselves. Your enemy is not the persons struggling with you but the one who continues to exploit those who have little voice.

    Thomas Todd of Operation Push once told me: "If you need one, send one to get one." Let's not turn on one another but turn to one another to demand that this nation afford all an equal opportunity. Please don't be commandeered to do the discrimination for others who see their traditional strongholds slipping into darkness. Be wary of those who vote for deportation yet have undocumented citizens cleaning their houses or raising their children.

    Wake up and understand. If we decided to work in unsafe environments with no benefits and low wages, textiles would return and save the fuel it takes to import the goods back here.

    I'm not saying don't march. Let's march. Let's march into our children's bedrooms and and classrooms and demand better students and better schools. Let's march. Let's march to the brothers with felonies and find a way to get those youthful mistakes off their records and invite them back to a productive society. Let's march. Let's march to take the corruptive financing out of our political campaigns so that we might see a return to statesmanship and leadership that does not depend on big money influence. Let's march. Let's demand that your neighbor love thy neighbor as he loves himself. Let's march and say we don't need a semi-automatic rifle in every household. Let's march and renew the precepts of America, a land of diversity and a land of dreams. A land that was taken from its native culture by violence in the name of discovery. A nation that was built on the back of slavery, indentured servitude, and cheap labor. But not just that. A nation of vision, collective ingenuity, creativity, courage, sacrifice and religious freedom. All these engines propelled this nation into its existence.

    Let's march. Let's march toward a future that was envisioned by all our forefathers and what all mother's want for their children: brown, white and black. Let's march toward a greater nation, better together than we can ever be divided. If we would remember that we l dream in black and white, hope in colors and bleed in red, we can do this.

    To all my brothers and sisters in America.

    Respectfully submitted, Andy Anderson

    BLACK AMERICAN WORKERS WILL SUFFER FURTHER UNDER THE
    SENATE IMMIGRATION BILL?

    ARE SPECIAL INTERESTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE
    LOBBYISTS STEALTHILY GOVERNING THIS NATION AS A SHADOW GOVERNMENT?

    It seems like a paralysis has set in to the Senate,
    with much of Americans survival determined by the G8 when it comes to illegal
    immigration. All I know is they are playing with fire and they are not only
    going to get burned, but incinerated by the majority of ordinary Americans.
    Next week the Gang of Eight and their surrounding group of other legislators
    may have already decided on the fate of this country’s future, but the overall
    consequences of rejecting the major enforcement TRIGGERS will not be forgotten
    in any election to come. Americans have
    already been played as simpletons once as with (The Patient Protection and Affordable
    Care Act (PPACA) commonly known as Obamacare, because we now know the costs are
    so far out of whack, that even Leftist unions are having second thoughts and
    deciding against it.

    But just like the Senate bill.477 on immigration
    they equally stink of an infestation of Special Interests and the lobbyists who
    plague the politician’s chambers like vermin. One has to wonder which Senators
    got paid off to reduce enforcement at the border by not reintroducing the 2006
    Secure Fence Act. This double layer fencing coupled with700 miles of concertina
    barbed razor wire, which would have been a serious deterrent to stop the
    onslaught of welfare illegal aliens, terrorist, drug cartels becoming more
    prominent within the border region then cattle ranchers. Without the maximum
    enforcement at the border, nothing really has changed from the 1986 Amnesty.
    The American Border Patrol has stated so, and the American people have demanded
    the fence be secured tight. They have already informed Politicians that there
    is a 13 percent increase of people slipping across the border. This is an
    obvious event when the word of Amnesty rang out across the borders and other
    countries. The media always show the steel reinforced fencing, but once outside
    the city limits there is mostly nothing but a few strands of barbed wire, that
    even a blind man could crawl through.

    AMERICA DEMANDS IT, BUT IT LIKE TALKING TO A BRICK
    WALL. Instead under the Senate bill we can expect 100.000 more work visas for
    agriculture and the mega businesses, with little consideration for these
    countries unemployed or those who have dropped out all together. And immensely
    challenging is the fact that a larger proportion of African Americans jobless
    see no light at the end of the tunnel. BLACK AMERICANS ARE VERY VULNERABLE AND
    ALWAYS THE ONES TO SUFFER THE MOST AND THE PEOPLE SHOULD RESENT THIS? AND THEN
    GIVING MORE PRIVILEGES TO FOREIGN NATIONALS WHO INTENTIONALLY VIOLATED OUR
    SOVEREIGN LAWS AND THEN BEING HANDED A PATH TO CITIZENSHIP IN THE FUTURE.

    The last thing we need when 20 million Americans are
    unable to find full-time jobs at every level of occupation is for Congress to
    flood the country with more foreign job-seekers. This new amnesty is just another pitfall for
    the unemployed, especially new graduates from college or even teens who seek
    jobs during the summer season. S. 744 promises to give work permits to at least
    11 million illegal border crossers and visa overstayers. It also would continue
    the recent elevated flow of 11 million new immigrants a decade. And it would
    add at least another 11 million the first decade through new immigration
    categories and increases in existing categories.

    It is irrational and cruel to give out 33 million
    more work permits when millions of Americans who ARE employed are suffering
    long-term wage depression due to the persistent shortage of jobs and excess of
    workers.

    This bill would give out about half the number of
    green cards in a single decade as all the immigrants who have ever arrived in
    our entire history since the founding of Jamestown in 1607.

    No matter what you may think about legalizing most
    of the current illegal population in this country, you can’t possibly justify
    adding 33 million potential foreign job seekers as competitors for scarce U.S.
    jobs.

    Furthermore, this bill would be a pathway to higher
    chain migration and massive new social service expenditures in a time of budget
    deficit and debt crisis. And it would lead to more illegal immigration because
    it gives the legalization and work permits first with only promises of future
    enforcement, just like the previous seven amnesties between 1986 and 2000 which
    had no hard enforcement triggers and served only to entice 11 million new
    illegal immigrants who now demand their own amnesty.

    There are just too many amendments that have been
    thrown into the trash by the GANG OF EIGHT, which would have got bipartisan
    recommendations; instead the whole atmosphere is full of anger, frustration and
    giving into the pressure of the special interests that will sink any chance of
    compromise. Then those who voted for this deception will learn the hard way,
    not to cross the American People as the lawmakers did in 1986. Even today, NOW!
    Taxpayer’s pockets are still being picked for the expense of the original
    amnesty some 27 years ago, in furnishing immense amounts of cash to support the
    family chain migration that followed enactment of that law.

    IT IS NOW OR NEVER TO FIGHT BACK OR WE WILL ONCE
    AGAIN BE CONDEMNED TO BE VISITED ONCE AGAIN BY THE TAXMAN. Start overloading
    the phones in Washington. “NO AMNESTY! DROP THIS IMMIGRATION BILL IN TO
    THE POTOMAC!” Send scathing faxes into the in-boxes of every member of the
    U.S. House and Senate using the mailing system at http://www.numbersusa.com/ Even
    contact your faxes to 435 Representatives in Congress. Give them no excuse to
    escape your anger. It’s free or you can
    help out with a donation? Let lawmakers distinguish that, “A vote for Amnesty
    means NO REELECTION FOR YOU!” We
    can jam their phones at toll-free — 1-888-978-3094–. Set up your message on Twitter or Facebook as
    the Left is doing the same with their counterproductive ambiguous information.
    You can reach millions of people on these Social networks, so we can hammer
    away at these slick politicians who many become rich by bowing to lobbyists.
    Read even more facts about illegal immigration at American Patrol website.

    Unless all the previous generations of Americans/
    legal residents come together on this urgent matter nothing will change. The
    wealthy purveyors of cash and favors in the pockets of the G8 will prevail, and
    the rest of us will be startled by the corrupt IRS institution wanting more
    taxes. As for the IRS after this fiasco, the whole institution should be
    abolished and let us enter the realm of a flat tax. A simple consumption tax on goods or a
    single, small rate of tax on income to fund each administration and the
    services provided. That is where taxable income and corporate profits don’t
    escape payment for living in this great country. A fair and equal tax that
    everybody will pay, without any exemptions, including, mega corporations who
    hide their ill-gotten gains overseas and even the poor must pay a small amount,
    instead of living of the taxpayer. IN
    CONCLUSION WE SHOULD DEMAND FROM WASHINGTON A NATIONAL BIOMETRIC ID CARD,
    GIVING CITIZENS SOME MEASURE OF SECURITY IN CLAIMING A JOB, BEING ABLE TO VOTE
    AND AS A SAFEGUARD AGAINST CREDIT CARD FRAUD. If every citizen possessed a
    federal ID card there would be no more severe issues over identification in
    voting.

    I work in the hospitality industry where the vast majority of the jobs used to be done by African Americans. They have been completely replaced by non English speaking illegals who refuse to learn the English language,not even a few words. We have a cook who claims to have been living in this country for ten years and yet can’t read “no bacon” or tomatoes on a ticket. We have to either learn to say it in Spanish or have some one who speaks Spanish present all the time. What is worst is most of these illegals refuse to work with African Americans will force native workers out by refusing to work or communicate with them. We have to turn away qualified native workers because illegals’s unwillingness to work with them!

    • Rubie Brown

      I’m sorry KG, you don’t have to turn away workers born in this country. That’s illegal. This is America not Mexico. If they start filing EEOC’s on your company this behavior would stop.

      Let me add there is a Black race war with Mexicans Latino WHY?

      • Rubie Brown

        How about the fact that Mexicans gangs have been on the West Coast for decades in East LA and spread all over the country as other gangs. Poverty creates crime and gangs in any Minority Group. Mexicans gangs are involved in drugs, murder and all other kinds of crime you can name. They are running the Drug Smuggling industry. So Rhonda, get your facts straight or speak to California Gang Enforcement and ask the who are the most violent and notorious, they will tell you The Mexican Gangs. They control the Drug Trade. Let’s talk about racism, You see any blacks working in any industry that is owned by Mexicans, supervised by Mexicans, most of the time they don’t even employ whites. Do your research their are a huge amounts of EEOC lawsuits that have been filed and won because of this. Especially in California and Texas. First how can you justify coming into a Country and protesting to stay because your Country, (who is not Communist), is not providing you with what you are paying taxes for? But you protest in a Country in which you don’t pay Taxes, and are not a Citizen but have bought Stolen Identification. Protest in Mexico. Your own country have an Immigration policy and it is enforced to the fullest. Cooperation America have Mind Melted Americans to vote against their own interest. They paid to bring a lot of these people over here and organized disbursement was done all over the U.S., these people are poor they don’t have money to end of in the far South and the East Coast shameless putting people out of work. Everybody want to pay bills and feed their kids, It should be done fairly and legally. Black America have done their time for free, Slaves built this country with Free Labor and later Cheap Labor. I don’t think they are going to the bottom of the barrel without a fight. Lastly, White workers are losing jobs also, Cooperate greed does not have a color. America is said to be on track to resemblance a Third World Country by 2032, because it cannot sustain 20 million, not 11 million additional people. It doesn’t matter where they are from. There is not enough jobs, housing, schools, medical, and other resources. We all know this is true. We hear it everyday we are living it, This illegal system was part of the Domino Effect that got us here. No other country will allow this. Certainly not Mexico!

    • cesareljalisciense

      Wow Isaura, you genius. There are parts of the United States that have plenty of illegals from other parts of the world such as Africa, Asia, and even Europe. But somehow when Russians and other Europeans come here they have a right to be here because the original people of the Americas were white (sarcasm). No one ever calls them illegal aliens and no one ever mentions their mafias and other criminal activity they bring with them.

    • cesareljalisciense

      Also, if you’re going to call out the wrongs of amnesty, with which I DO happen to agree, you should call out all illegals from all over the world. Don’t target just one group because you are fomenting hate and unrest. And while you’re egging the blacks to hate Mexicans, you should also remind them that Mexico lost Texas standing up to Southern whites who violated Mexico’s anti-slavery laws. That was the reason the whites wanted an independent Texas so that they could continue to have slaves which the new Mexican Constitution did not allow. Look it up!

    If illegal immigrants couldn’t get a job, or collect entitlements, they wouldn’t cross our border, except to visit.

    Mandating, and ENFORCING, E-Verify for all jobs, and any entitlement, with harsh prosecutions of any offending employer, as well as the offending illegal immigrants, will do more to stop illegal immigration, than any futile attempt to secure the border, and also do it much faster, and at far less expense. At the same time, a mandatory, and ENFORCED, E-Verify could immediately provide jobs for millions of Americans

    Eight million illegal immigrants, are continuing to break our laws, by using false, or stolen, SS numbers, to work in, non-agriculture, on-the-books, American jobs. Only 6% of employers are presently using E-Verify. … E-Verify has a 99.71% accuracy rate (per recent Congressional testimony) … For every illegal immigrant working, an American isn’t…

    Simply put, E-Verify is, by far, the single most-effective tool we, the people have, to prevent illegal immigration.

    E-VERIFY NOW!!

    Along the 1,951 mile Southwest border ….

    351 miles of varying types of pedestrian fence; exception 36.3 miles of double, and triple-layered fence at key points (i.e. San Luis, AZ, and Smugglers Gulch, CA).
    300 miles of vehicle barriers

    129 miles of border under full control
    873 miles under operational control

    18,516 Border Patrol agents

    Everything I have heard, or read, over the past five years indicates that the Southwest Border Patrol agents’ consensus, is that they now apprehend an estimated 1, out of every 3, illegal immigrant border crossers.

    Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector Monthly Apprehensions
    as of April 2, 2013, Rio Grande Valley arrests were up 53% to 59,147
    RGV apprehensions through May, are over 90,000
    FY2013 projected 149,576 +53%
    FY2012……97,762 +65%
    FY2011……59,243

    Border Patrol Nationwide Monthly Apprehensions (Source: DHS/CPB)
    FY2013 projected –415,678 +14.0%
    FY2012–364,768 +7.2%
    FY2011–340,252

    Bryan Roberts, who used to evaluate border and immigration programs for the Department of Homeland Security, “To catch 90 percent of all illegal crossers — which is what the Senate bill demands — the Border Patrol would have to triple the number of agents on the ground from 20,000 to 60,000.”

    Critics say the government often is too fixated on high-technology solutions. C. Stewart Verdery Jr., a former Homeland Security official who now runs a lobbying firm, said federal officials should instead focus their limited resources on making it harder for illegal immigrants to work in the United States, an approach that would serve as an effective deterrent.

    “Where are you going to get the biggest bang for the buck?” Mr. Verdery said.
    “Enforcement of the workplace is probably the best area to invest more dollars.”

        You are just plain Damn Racist, how are Blacks responsible for Flesh eating drugs. Blacks don’t control the drug trade. They don’t bring drugs in this country. If that’s the case you need to add Whites who also sell drugs. Especially Crystal Meth. Does this mean the whole White community are drug dealers? No. Nether is the whole or large portion of the Black community or Mexican community. Even though they are running the drug trade. I don’t paint them all with a broad brush. I am concerned with illegal Immigrations that will affect every legal citizen and their children and grand children. If you want to expand your racist views maybe you are aligning yourself with the wrong cause.

    This hits right to the core. We need to make sure people who are Citizens don’t get pushed back. It’s not right for anyone to get a job stolen by an illegal immigrant!!!

      The join us,This is not about black ,white latino ,asian or native american .This is about illegal.Illegal is in every race.

      • Borissgal

        , the DC March for Jobs is both an attempt to highlight the unemployment plight of the black community and a protest against the disastrous illegal alien amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens that will crater black unemployment.

        Seems pretty one sided to me.

      Illegal immigration is also affecting white citizens many. Visit California illegal immigration make up probably 38% of the population. Many stores, fast food, factories, and Banks, especially Bank of America has only Mexicans. No whites, no blacks,. Black and white teens are definitely suffering in the job market. It’s wrong.

    I attended the ground breaking of one of the major Clark
    Construction projects in town and heard the mayor talk about 2,400 new jobs
    from the project and you addressed the disparity of the talk VS the reality in
    your story last year and the local residents in their protest marches. I can
    tell you for a fact that there are now illegal aliens taking jobs that were
    promised to local citizens. On one job alone at LEAST 15 persons that I
    personally know about. These are jobs that are supposed to pay prevailing wage
    rates, I am talking about $34-$50 per hour jobs, not the so-called “jobs
    Americans won’t do” for minimum wage. (BTY, there is no such thing as a job an
    American won’t do)

    Furthermore, their employer is NOT paying the prevailing wage
    even though he signs documents to the federal government each week swearing and
    affirming that he has. See, when you hire people that are in this country illegally
    you can do what you want to them including stealing a third of their paycheck
    per week each and every week. What are they going to say? Speak up and get
    deported? Has anyone in your office looked at the local workers displaced by undocumented
    workers?

    People getting rich by cheating on their agreements and
    exploiting others, good ole’ “inside the beltway” bullshit? I am glad to be
    leaving this area.

    I refused to go along with the above described actions and eventually
    lost my job over it. I would do it again, I think of it as having integrity, a foreign
    concept in Washington DC, something to be derided and laughed at.

    By the way, I have sponsored 3 immigrants into this country
    we love. I did it by myself and I did it legally. Does immigration need a tune
    up? I can tell you from experience yes, just like every governmental office you
    have ever interfaced with. What we need to do is enforce the laws on the books
    now, do you think you can find 15 DC residents that would appreciate a $34 per
    hour job right now?

    Obama knew the controlled black American group will vote for him no matter what..but now he has the new illegal vote to get and control

    The numbers are in his favor to get control over the USA and rip the Constitution right from under us.

    He is using the Trayvon Martin case to force the black community to overturn Stand your Ground law when he is stock piling guns in federal places like social security, irs, and homeland security plus training the military to contain American citizens for any reason.

    He was not kidding when he stated it was going to be a new world order which included the USA.

    • Rhonda Clark

      There will be no jobs for Real Americans they went to Free college here trillions only go to Minority programs WHY every race will go into a Civil war because well all go hungry , lose our homes , cars and our family college AND ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS RAISE UP THERE RACE CARD blacks need jobs and every race

  • kee

    Black people just want something to whine about, they know even if the jobs we’re there, they wouldn’t take them.lol. Most of them are too damn lazy to keep a job. Employers would rather hire anyone else except black, cause they dont work and always whining. You blacks need to quit blaming illegals, they are picking up black peoples slack.

  • Ronert Jonathan King

    I’m the father of a bi-racial child black and white. I fear for her future due to the government lead by President Obama and Erick Holder. Why do you want to allow 12 million illegals to be here and take jobs from black Americans? Have the blacks in America gained anything from having a black president and black attorney general? Not on damn bit. Both Obama and Holder prefers to give in to those who came here illegally and give them your jobs. Who is keeping the black man down ? I’d say Obama and Holder at this point. If we all join together as black and white brothers and sisters and demand that all illegal’s go back including any from Mexico, Europe and the Middle east. Black and whites built this country so why do we want to hand it over to Illegals , We still can build a great nation together, let’s stand together as we did with Martin Luther King and say we will now over come the illegals and get back to the mountain top.

    JULY 17-18, 2014 NATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST AGAINST ILLEGALS and AGAINST IMMIGRATION REFORM, AMNESTY, and BORDER SURGE

  • guest100

    One of the many ways Obama has violated his oath of office that he swore to uphold is because he protects and shields his own illegal aunt and DUI-arrested illegal uncle!! The first thing his uncle said to the arresting officers was, “I think I’ll call the White House.” How arrogant. Both the illegal aunt and uncle have been STEALING housing, medical (most expensive of all), food, and $750/month from the taxpayers for YEARS. Now that Obama is president, we taxpayers even have to pay for Secret Service protection for these two as they commit their multiple criminal acts! Suppose the drunken illegal uncle had killed someone, even a child? No doubt Obama would ensure he got protection and immunity for that too! Thank heavens his scumbag illegal aunt recently died. She had been offered job training but said, no thanks, she’d rather sit on her butt and steal from the taxpayers. No more sponging from her!

    The U.S. govt discriminates against its citizens and particularly the disabled because the govt reimburses hospitals for every illegal they treat. Guess who that leaves out. Illegals don’t get equal treatment but PREFERENTIAL treatment and they want American citizens to be their slaves and pay their bills. This definitely affects not only quality of care, meds received (or not), and length of stay, but also any follow-up care such as going to a convalescent center until well enough and/or physical therapy (or NOT). I have a disabled friend and have witnessed outrageous discrimination over and over the last 22 years. Nurses and doctors have sympathized with my friend, who lives in pain 24/7, but can do nothing. As one doctor said while patting his shoulder, “It’s because you’re the wrong color. That’s why you can’t get the care you need. I’m sorry.” ABLE-BODIED illegals are sponging off the taxpayers and stealing from the disabled! And those people whine & want preferential treatment over all others?! No way. Tell those lazy bums to get up off their backsides and WORK and WAIT to accomplish residency the LEGAL way – and that includes paying their bills and American taxes. NO AMNESTY. It’s time for the U.S. govt to stop DISCRIMINATING against the disabled and its citizens.
    And don’t talk about the ‘free clinics.’ They also get federal funds for each illegal they treat. They will turn away an American disabled, because they know they can’t pay and they won’t get federal funds or reimbursed by the govt. I tried to take my disabled friend to one – he was turned away from each one of the 3 clinics we visited because they wouldn’t get reimbursed by the govt for him. But when he was a working person he paid into our system for years! That’s how the politicians sell out our own citizens.

  • guest100

    I want to see you put in a 10-hr work day, then take your disabled friend who lives in pain 24/7 to the nearest ER and sit there for TWENTY HOURS while all the illegals tie up time, doctors, and resources for nothing more than a cold! Even our disabled are taxed to support ABLE-BODIED minorities and illegals! I’ve seen it firsthand for the last 26 years and will testify in court any time, anywhere at my own expense!

  • guest100

    Last January I had to take my disabled friend, who lives in pain 24/7, to a southern California ER. The place was so packed that personnel were placing patients in the hallways. My disabled friend and I were in one hallway and placed next to us was an illegal woman with 4 kids and she was pregnant with a 5th!! Her story that she told to the ER physician was that she had already been to an Urgent Care center. They told her she and her kids had a cold and would simply have to go home and wait it out. She had then come to the ER. So a doubly-expensive ER physician had to examine her and her four snot-nosed brats and give her the same speech, namely that she had a cold and should go home and wait it out. And THIS – THIS is what OUR TAX DOLLARS are going for!! ABLE-BODIED BUMS like that illegal slob who ran up two bills in two different places – and the American taxpayers pay for it all. This discrimination against our own citizens must STOP. Let that sponge stop breeding kids and start working and paying her own bills!!

    no matter what race / color we are we all need to do the right thing and put a stop to this border crossing . congress can’t even help our own in this country they don’t care . look at all the ones out of work with no money for there family . does the government care all they want is their big fat pay check .and they are way overpaid we need to start with cutting their pay . start funding for schools and help our homeless and elderly and to help our veterans. See how they like it . let’s stop all their money and let’s vote as Americans to cut all their pay and set their pay rate not them voting in their own rate. Remember they are public servants . let us all stand together on this .

    It’s about time the black community woke up! We have a president who stated his first term that his greatest regret was not being able to grant amnesty to millions of illegals, showing where his priorities lay, yet he was re-elected.

    Well what’s not to like for the dems if the unemployment rate for blacks go up?
    It simply means millions more depending on a handout from the government, and a loyal democrat voter.
