Will activists turn to violence & start looting & rioting in US Immigrant Rights Activists "It's Showdown Time?
If there's one point that Illinois' immigration reform activists have driven home over the past year, it's that they won't take "next year" for an answer. When naysayers on Capitol Hill said that legislative reforms had no chance of moving forward in 2010, Illinois' own Rep. Luis Gutierrez responded by introducing legislation that would put some 12 million undocumented people on the path to citizenship. Those community groups, faith leaders, and students that came out in record numbers to help elect President Obama in 2008 aren't backing down either. This spring, they are focusing their attention on the White House and Congress -- and taking the fight to their doorstep. Activists from across the Prairie State -- from union organizers to clergy to nonprofit leaders -- came together yesterday to highlight their effort to send 10,000 Illinoisans to D.C. on March 21 for a national rally in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. (If you're interested in participating in the march, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights has more information here.) "It's showdown time," Centro Sin Fronteras' Emma Lozano said. "We are united as never before. We will mobilize as never before." Watch Lozano and fellow reform supporters, including Chicago Ald. Ricardo Munoz and United Electrical Workers District 11 President Carl Rosen: http://progressillinois.com/posts/content/2010/02/23/immigration-reform-activists-its-showdown-time Why are they still showing up to protest with the flag of Mexico ?

With most republicans' seats hanging on the votes of the latinos if cir gets voted on by the time elections come, i feel sorry for each and every one of them who'll cast a "nay" Long story short, the time to hit is now. They wont get violent unless a bunch of rednecks decides to fight them

If you kick somebody in the crotch often enough they're bound to take a swing at you one day. But it'll be your own fault if they do. They'll turn violent if the cops wade in there like the goon squad waving their night sticks and their pepper spray.

When will these pro-illegal activists/terrorists understand that illegals are NOT immigrants, nor are they refugees. They are criminals who flaunt our immigration laws by coming here in the dead of night, and then have the nerve to flout their illegal status demanding "rights" that were never intended for them...

Nothing would make my day more. I am ready to go ape on these illegals and would love one good reason to do so. I own enough to give them one hell of a battle. I am tired of these criminals and ready to do what it takes to get rid of them like we do in the military for other freakin countries.
