Immigrant rights protest today at Costa Mesa City Hall | mesa, city, day - News - The Orange County Register
15 protesters showed up,you can probably find more Illegals in front of any California Home Depot than this.

Looks like the Si Se Puede crowd is running out of steam.

Misleading headline as usual - nothing to do with "immigrant rights". Why are they so afraid to say it like it is - "illegals gather to demand rights they're not entitled to".

It's not even that - it is 15 "activists claiming to speak for illegals gather to demand rights".

You will find that the pro-illegals spin that term "immigrant rights" all the time. I know of a website dedicated to "immigrant rights" and it isn't about "immigrants" at all. It is all about defending illegal aliens.

Your an immigrant if you come here legally and have all the documentation.
Your a criminal trespasser, and in no way an immigrant if you cross into the USA illegally.

What about illegally, is legal and not criminal?


Immigration & trespassing, are not one in the same, by a long shot.

It pretty much does. Legal immigrants are expected to have an employer sponsor so you're not going to see legal immigrants hanging around a day labor center.

Even those on temporary work visas like the H2A visa have no reason to be out begging for a job because when their work term is up, they return home.
