A coalition of anti-illegal immigration groups are staging protests this weekend around the country in what’s being touted as “the largest coordinated protest against all forms of amnesty, comprehensive immigration reform, and the government’s failure to enforce immigration laws and secure our borders.”

According to the group’s website, hundreds of protests will take place on Friday and Saturday. There were apparently sporadic clashes between pro and anti-illegal immigrant forces at some of the rallies, but overall, words rather than blows appeared to be exchanged.

Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, writes in the Washington Times that a tipping point against illegal immigration may have arrived:

The response of the administration and its supporters to the breakdown of the border in South Texas seems to have finally gotten a large share of the public to see what’s happening. Even the White House’s use of illegal-alien children as human shields for its anti-sovereignty policies has not managed to allay the increasing sense of alarm across the country.

Only a few peeps of concern have emanated from Democrats in Congress, most of whom are applauding the border breakdown. Republicans haven’t been much better. Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. John McCain have taken the opportunity to repeat their support for amnesty and dramatic increases in immigration. Others at least are concerned, but have been distracted by the trivial issue of a 2008 anti-trafficking law, which does not even apply here.

In the absence of political leadership, the public is jumping out of the pot on its own. A new Gallup poll shows that immigration now tops the list of most important issues facing the country, higher than dissatisfaction with government, the economy, jobs or health care.

That concern is being expressed by ordinary citizens in their communities. Residents of Murrieta, Calif., were the first to act, blocking buses to prevent the relocation of illegal immigrants from the Texas border. Virtually the entire town of Lawrenceville, Va., came to a community meeting on relocating illegal-immigrant juveniles there, causing the federal government to back off. Similar resistance has happened in Vassar, Mich.; Oracle, Ariz.; Greece, N.Y.; Escondido, Calif.; and elsewhere.

The story isn’t over in those communities, where illegal immigrants have already been relocated. Come September, thousands of illegal-alien “minors” (many of them adults lying about their age) will be entering unprepared public schools, creating a new wave of outrage.

Perhaps one particular decision by the White House highlights how concerned the administration is about public reaction: As of now, not a single illegal-alien detainee seems to have been sent to Louisiana or Arkansas, the states bordering Texas that are closest to the site of the border deluge. This is no accident. Those two states have Democratic senators up for re-election who are vulnerable enough to lose, but who might still be able to prevail. The White House appears to have decided not to send any illegals there to avoid the potential for political damage.

The real tipping point comes in November. If the public stays outraged enough about the border situation, they should take it out on both Republicans and Democrats who don’t believe in our sovereignty and turn them out of office.  Putting enough anti-illegal immigrant lawmakers in office is the only way to flip the playing field and get serious about border control.

It is doubtful that the main stream of leftist media will write any headlines about the attack on the agents of the US government who found themselves in a hopeless situation on the border; the newspaper reporters prefer not to ignite any more interest in the overrun border region and instead keep readers pinned to the downing of the Malaysian passenger jet in the Ukraine. Don’t be sidetracked from the present danger to our national security and the massive costs to extend welfare to the continuous stream of illegal foreigners.

Last Friday night the U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the RINCON PENINSULA, Texas were forced to take cover when high-caliber armament was fired at them from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande. Border Patrol sources that were confirmed by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas account, said the shots may have been fired by heavy .50-caliber weapons.

"They don't have any armor that can stop a .50-caliber round, so our Border Patrol agents had to back away when the rounds were ricocheting around them," said Gohmert, who has been in the area for the last week to get a physical look at the border condition, adding "When the shooting stopped, about 40 to 50 people came out on the U.S. side and turned themselves in. So clearly the rounds were being fired to suppress every effort to stop anybody intervening with anyone or anything coming across. We have no idea what or how many or who came across with the other illegal immigrants."

We are in a crisis of massive proportions. In the past recent weeks we have been awash in dread and uneasiness, even rage, as this President has opened the floodgates to tens and thousand illegal children from Central America. Already something like 56,000 illegal unaccompanied children has entered our country with more predictable next year. Nearly one thousand a week cross our borders illegally. As Americans we will bear the burden of the outrageous cost as illegal aliens’ game the system, spurred on by many pregnant females.

While the bickering goes on in Congress there was secret negotiations going on between the United Nations and the three countries involved, with the a US representative there. Looks to me like a conspiracy with these entities involved, which leaves bad taste in my mouth as nothing has been reported.


This will break the back of America and cause her to collapse; seemingly to rent our system of Law and Order apart by the left. This latest emergency has been weighing heavily on the minds of Americans. We have thought about it, discussed it at the dinner table and in conversations with friends. If there is one resounding cry it is: "What can we do?"

There is a powerful solution that simply requires that you raise your voice and demand action:


Send a Pink Slip to that pro-illegal immigration Congress. It is the utmost urgency that we send demanding not requesting they put Obama on notice and begin impeachment proceedings. Not a relatively harmless court case to sue him, BUT IMPEACHMENT.




It is critical you send your personal PINK SLIP message to Congress today. There are things happening right now that demand action. They are frightening to the very core. According to the TEA PARTY.ORG many Americans are not aware that the Obama administration is working to secretly enact a new rule that would force cities and towns into housing illegal aliens. If this new regulation passes and Obama gets his way, the Department of Housing and Urban Development could simply waltz into any city or town and rezone an entire area claiming it doesn't have enough affordable housing for those that fall under "protected status."

As Patriots, WE understand this would be entirely illegal. The US Constitution grants no power to the federal government over local city planning or zoning. But like Obama and his administration did with Common Core, they plan to use the power of the almighty dollar—and a hidden agenda—to enforce it. "Either accepts it or you don't get the grant money."

And who is the chief beneficiary of this regulation? We must not be fooled for one minute. This is not about Fair Housing. It's about a government power grab. His government goons want to force amnesty on us and they will do anything to do so.

Right now tens of thousands of illegal children are being covertly whisked into small towns and cities across the country. Yet our government will not disclose where these children are or even WHO they are.

Obama promised to return them to Central America, but this is simply a pack of more lies.

Reliable sources and news reports show these children are being taken too many states, including Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Obama's puppets are hiding these children, making them so hard to find and so scattered across the US that it becomes extremely difficult to send them back, let alone find them. This is h

ObamaCare was just a beginning, as was the subsequent blowback that was the TEA Party.
Now we've got this horrendous mess, created by the self-same ninnies, and actually this is much worse, as it is making inroads into the Mass Media, much more often.
Progressives have once again given us the ammunition in which to fight them with, and we'd be total fools not to use what is being handed to us, on a silver platter.
How badly does anyone out there really want "Real Change " ? This topic and it's unintended consequences CAN make it happen.
How badly do you, personally, want it.....?

School districts are already being notified that illegal minors will be enrolling this fall. They are not happy about it. None of those school districts is in Beverly Hills, Chevy Chase, Short Hills, Greenwich, Grosse Pointe, Palm Beach, Falls Church, Kenilworth, Woods Hole or Chappaqua.

The US government is going bankrupt due to a lack of children [http://online.wsj.com/articles/michael-boskin-how-washington-whittles-away-property-rights-1405552997]. It looks like God sent us a rowboat [http://storiesforpreaching.com/i-sent-you-a-rowboat/] but we're refusing to get in.

Yes, but more important is US Code 1182. It contains a geeat deal of legal means for not granting any Amnesty.
