Oh, I love the line: "Our" schools. When did public schools become their schools??

What really ticks me off, personally, is how they think they are living under "Jim Crow laws". I wonder if any of them actually know the depth of the Jim Crow laws and the impact of those laws who were subjected to them; if any of them ever read a book as to how those laws impacted AMERICAN citizens; how many of them saw a video or photos of what took place during the civil rights marches and the violence that was inflicted on AMERICAN citizens. They are latching on to a very important part of American history that is not theirs and using it for their own cause.

ICE needs to swarm that bus and put it all over the news. I'd laugh if a bunch of illegal aliens were led away in handcuffs.

You titled the topic here...

That titling refers to a bus, not illegal aliens in general...

Define "harassed"...

Key word: provoke
Stimulate or give rise to (a reaction or emotion, typically a strong or unwelcome one) in someone.
Stimulate or incite (someone) to do or feel something, esp. by arousing anger in them.
From Colorado and Alabama to Texas and Tennessee, the six-week, 10-state tour will provoke anti-immigrant counties and states and pressure for national immigration reform along its way to the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina in September.

They do take gall to a new level. Only the ingrate illegals would have the audacity to be here illegally, yet display such in-your-face arrogance. To even suggest a valid comparison can be made between them and black CITIZENS during Jim Crow is not only absurd, but an affront to all who suffered during that period. Despite the fact that they are here in violation of our laws, and commit numerous other unlawful acts, not to mention bankrupting this country, they receive far better treatment than ANY black person during Jim Crow. Apparently they have forgotten they have no right to be here, or demand a damn thing.

But, our spineless government has allowed them to run roughshod over our laws, our sovereignty, and our taxpayers. I suppose next, they'll take their protest bus to the White House to demand better-paying jobs and interest-free mortgage loans. Incredible!
