lol

"it's not "political opinion" if I don't agree with it!"

I dont like the guy and feel its all a show but I wont say he is doing anything but what many before him has done. Hes the latino version of Al Sharpton as far as I am concerned.
What politician isnt grand standing at some point or another.
Whats sad is how many buy into it.....
Al Sharpton didn't advocate for foreigners here breaking our laws. There is a huge difference. There are immigration laws for a reason.

Yes it is but they are all not the same.

The tea party was to stop the British invasion of high taxes & intrusion.

No link with your comment.
His protest is welcoming an invasion.

Anyone advocating changing the laws is a traitor? I guess that makes every legislator that has ever sponsored or even voted for a new law a traitor since they were advocating something that was not THE LAW!!

You missed the point. We can protest anything and everything in this country. Freedom od speech and all that. Doent matter how dumb the protest is it is an american tradition that goes as far back as the Boston Tea party.
I detest war protesters showing up at funerals of fallen soldiers. I hate those no class scumbags that do it.
I'll never agree with their position. But protesting is a tradition.
I detest Gutierrez. I strongly disagree with what he stands for. But protesting is just about a norm in this country.
Why they do it or what the cause is is not relevent to the fact.

Hmm, I am no expert on our laws but it would seem to me that an elected official vying for illegal foreigners on our soil goes beyond the right to protest and instead sort of like a conflict of interest or maybe even treason.

It does.
How many illegals are there?
That number is so high & with a politician leading the charge to grant them amnesty they clearly have no patriotism to this country or respect for Americans.
