You are right and it is slowly tipping against illegals. More and more States are being forced to deal with it and eventually the Feds will actually have to take control.

You know how this makes him sound a Revolution, get real now, maybe we ought to start a revolution of our own.
He's looking at what's in it for the ones of his ethnicity and to hell with rest.

He was in the house vote, he made it clear that he didn't give a sh*t about this country, his concern was only the illegals.

It's always that there ie an "Immigration Problem" when in fact it's the Illegal Aliens who refuse to follow the laws that are the true "Problem".

Whatever is done for these ingrates is never enough. They will continue with their BS until the Country is bankrupt.

and the US "immigration system is broken" when they can't get WHAT they want WHEN they want it (or when the immigration laws are actually enforced)

Do not underestimate the potential damage that a wide spread uprising could cause. Crunch some numbers. Say that there are 10 million illegals here, likely a low estimate. Of this number, if only one out of every hundred takes part, that means 100,000 taking part. Add to that number tens of thousands of native born gang members and native born sympathetic to the illegals cause, and you could have a quarter of a million combatants on the streets rioting, looting, burning, and killing every white American they come across. Local law enforcement would be overwhelmed and unable to deal with it. Military units would have to be called it, and citizens would have to be responsible for defending themselves. Very far fetched scenario and extremely unlikely to happen? Agreed, but it is not totally impossible either. There are extremeists on both sides just itching for someone to press the Go button.

And with that said, I urge all US Citizens with concern, to join the NRA.

Thing is it could happen. Let the economy get very bad, we loose our economic status, a warfare like this could happen.

I may not be a member of the NRA, but I am definitely a trained member of Smith & Wesson.

I agree 100% with what you wrote. Like you said 100,000 ... even just 10,000 would be enough to cause some very significant damage and loss of life. Unlike in most parts of the world, we do not have paramilitary police/internal security forces, and much of our military (including the National Guard) is tied up in Iraq and Afghanistan which makes a recipe for disaster should something like this occur. Remember, most LEOs are barely trained to use their issued pistols, they are certainly not combat trained soldiers ... SWAT is only a little bit better.

As you said, should this ever happen it will come down to We the People of these United States to hold the line until the active duty military can redeploy enough forces from overseas to restore order. Form your community defense groups and stock up on guns, ammo, food, and water because we need to be ready beforehand. Learn your community layout, street names, schools (older traditional style schools from the 50s and 60s make good fortified positions with their brick walls and such), the location of bridges and highway overpasses, etc.
