Immigration reform march set for Sunday

By Eric Athas

Thousands of people representing a broad spectrum of religious, labor and civil rights groups are expected here Sunday by organizers of a series of events that focus on a call for immigration reform.

The demonstrations are expected as part of what organizers call a March for America. Events are to include a rally on the National Mall, a march to RFK Stadium, and an interfaith prayer service on the mall.

The prayer service has been scheduled for 1 p.m. with the rally and march an hour later.

Rally organizers have estimated that the total crowd could number in the tens of thousands making the demonstrations among the largest here in months.

America and it's free room service for those illegal aliens and immigration has to stop now or nver see our glory again.
Fact, Blacks are mostly extinct in 2 decades, Whites in 4 decades, and the rest except them latinos survive this albatross invasion by illegals.
Now, let me pray they March them tacos out of here and their families too back to whence they originated.

Meant to say in my earlier post that "the latinos will be the only ones/group left in America if this trend of amnesty for illegal immigrants continue unabated" and all the people who made this country great mainly whites and blacks are done in 40 years of any prosperity.

Don't just complain -- Fight Back! Visit www.numbersusa.org TODAY and learn how you can help fight the pro-illegal alien amnesty planned by the Obama administration. They will be reporting their web hits to the 99 percent pro-illegal alien media and want to get more hits today than there are illegals marching and chanting in Washington today.

Calling everyone who opposes Illegal alien amnesty racist is a joke. If everyone here is racist why live here?

Instead of ICE searching for illegals in work places they have a golden opportunity to round everyone at the rally and send them back home.

¡Advertencia!
Estás intrusos en este país y no son bienvenidos aquí. Volver a su país del tercer mundo y hacer que se hagan cargo de you.Repeat que no son bienvenidos aquí a casa antes de que te quitan por la fuerza.

The march is a perfect display of democracy, passion, and commitment to reaffirming the vision of our great country as a land of opportunity. Immigrants built America and they worked together to make it strong. In blue collars and in lab coats, immigrants continue to make us strong.

I speak no other language but English and I support Comprehensive Immigration Reform that includes a path to legalization for the undocumented. I am white and I support Comprehensive Immigration Reform that includes a path to legalization for the undocumented. Only one of my four grandparents was born outside of the US and I support Comprehensive Immigration Reform that includes a path to legalization for the undocumented. I have voted in every election since I was 18 years old and I support Comprehensive Immigration Reform that includes a path to legalization for the undocumented.

I am proud of the thousands of immigration supporters marching on the mall today. I will join them at 2pm to say the Pledge of Allegiance.

We do not need immigration reform.

We need immigration enforcement.

I have had enough of illegal aliens being presented in this newspaper as poor, downtrodden "immigrants" deprived of their rights.

Illegal aliens are breaking the law by being here, and rather than assimilating or contributing, they are conning the system, demanding special treatment.

We don't want the United States to become a Third World country.

March all right -- march the illegals back from whence they came.

Good afternoon,

I am opposed to illegal immigration, and also opposed to any amnesty for any illegal alien. I agree with the poster who cited NumbersUSA. Please visit NumbersUSA and register your disapproval with those who wish an amnesty for the illegal alien law breakers.

No amnesty for any illegal aliens, and no election, or reelection for those who advocate otherwise.
