Agreed. Now IF any pro illegal alien protesters break the law, nail them too.

My back property line is the ROW fence for I-8 around CA milepost 62, I may stand just inside the fence on a hill with a protest sign. I wonder what law that will break.

IMHO what would a dude covering his face do to the cops? That's "probable cause" for them to ask for ID and, if no ID's shown, out come the handcuffs.

Just like my once quiet apt complex here in the PNW, is now overrun by south of the borders familes and their huge amounts of infants, they hang out 7 days a week in the tiny parking lot space drinking, and carrying on, while their infants ride their bikes hooting and hollering ....there is no more peace in this apt complex, nothing can be done about it, so us long term quiet tenants are slowly moving out, including me. My assumption is that will completely take over the tiny complex in time. It is now full of toys an trash and the never ending hanging out, in the parking lots. It sucks here so bad I am leaving earlier then when my lease is up. This same thing is happening to tons of apt complexes all over my city where I live. They are loud, have huge numbers, and don't give a darn about what the other neighbors think. This is the reality of what is happening to our country and will continue to get worse, where they will overrun towns and cities like they been doing in CA and WA state and TX for years now. Just my opinion and experience. Americans want their country to look like Tijuana, they are getting their wish imo.

I agree! Write to your Overpass group and the Alipac.us group, and suggest that! I'm doing the same. If we consolidate numbers into one location now, that may have more impact! I think this was a "test the waters" effort - and despite some low number turnouts in some areas, others had great turnout! People even had to take the day off from work to protest, don't forget!

I feel your pain

Where I live, they've destroyed our community and schools. They live 20-30 to a flophouse. The once good elementary school that our daughter attended can't even get full accreditation from the state anymore

I've talked to our local politicians face-to-face and sent emails. A few years back, we had a community meeting with the politicians. 700 people came and I swear if they had pitchforks and torches, they would have gone after the politicians! We were promised that they would fix the overcrowded housing laws but they never did anything about it. In fact, our member of the state house of delegates was there and heard all the comments. And what did he do? He came out publicly in support of the DREAM Act

Many long-time residents have given up and moved on. Some left with tears in their eyes. They raised their kids here and and hoped to age in place in their home. Those who have stayed behind have tried to effect positive change but have become depressed and demoralized.

I pray everyday that we, too, can get out. Fortunately, our part of town hasn't deteriorated as badly as other parts but we have our parking issues and have spent 2 years trying to get permitted parking here.

I'm so tired of seeing scofflaws coddled and protected while law-abiding people have their quality of life destroyed.

Agreed and if you and your neighbors got together are REALLY started calling the cops on illegal aliens; the illegal alien fans WOULD accuse your people of "race profiling". What's that word: "dispicable" or something like that.
