So much for that March...?
Illegal Immigration Foes Rally at Washington Monument Three-Day Demonstration Draws Approximately 30 Decry 'Amnesty Bill' By Karin Brulliard Washington Post Staff Writer Thursday, June 14, 2007; 6:38 PM As President Bush continued to stump for an immigration reform bill, about 30 anti-illegal immigration activists from across the nation gathered near the Washington Monument today, the first day of a three-day rally planned by two women who met online and forged a bond over their shared anger about the estimated 12 million people in the country illegally. Many of those present at the "March For America" clutched U.S. flags and distributed literature decrying the effects of illegal immigration on schools, jobs and crime. Several wore buttons endorsing U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo's (R-Colorado) bid for president. Tancredo, one of Congress's fiercest critics of unauthorized immigrants, was scheduled to speak but did not show Some demonstrators said they feared that some form of the stalled Senate immigration bill -- the "amnesty bill," as Ann-Marie Jennelle, 39, called it -- would pass despite their efforts. "We don't need a new immigration law," said Jennelle, of Hedgesville, W. Va. "They need to enforce the laws we have." Organizers had said they expected a few hundred participants today. The demonstrations continue tomorrow and Saturday, when more than a dozen speakers are scheduled to address a crowd that organizers said they hope will reach 10,000 people. I can't help but laugh.

Thats what our authorities like to do. Kent State ring a bell? And then if you go against the grain of conventional American thinking... More

I think that Pancakes hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately those who are legal in this country cannot just abandon their jobs, families, etc. like the illegals. "The Emperor" obviously did not see all that coverage of the illegals marching. Didn't they have anything better to do?????
