About 100 immigrant-rights advocates marched from a Phoenix furniture store to City Hall on Wednesday to protest Mayor Phil Gordon's efforts to have Phoenix police take a more aggressive approach toward arresting undocumented immigrants.

The march came on the last City Council meeting of the year, and marchers used the opportunity to speak out against Gordon's decision to no longer back a 20-year-old policy that restricts officers from asking people about their immigration status during routine duties.

Interesting that ol' Salvador Reza was only able to muster about 100 marchers----and, some of them got picked up for being here illegally.

Suffice to say; anybody who is here illegally and brags about it deserves what they get under the eyes of the law.

For the life of me, ArizonaBear . . . I cannot understand why these Goons have such difficulty with the term ILLEGAL!

Unfortunately; a sad and nasty trait of Hispanic culture (and, till recently, of Irish and Italian as well) is the habit of thumbing one's nose at authority------due in large part to the latter being deceitful and hypocritical.

Look at the differences between our law enforcement agencies and the Federales.

Let 'em thumb their noses at their OWN country's "authority".

Excellent point, ArizonaBear.

However, it sure speaks volumes for their respect, or lack thereof, for the very country they are requesting acceptance.

The big Mexican protests fizzled when the protestors were told to wave American flags from now on.

That's the problem --- they attracted thousands when they saw it as a Mexican patriot movement -- wave their Mexican "colors" in our faces. Their leaders realized that was too truthful and realized that they need to hide their real intentions and aggressions against the USA better by passing out American flags.

However -- these people have no desire to be real American -- they're here for the money and handouts only -- the American flag doesn't inspire anything at all in them, so they'd rather sit and watch novelas.

Actually, the larger demonstrations (not protests as you see it) were held on May Day, or the International Workers' Day as it is viewed internationally. It wasn't only Mexicans that marched on May Day, but Irish and Koreans just to name a few. It was a culmination of all races, though of course mostly Hispanic, that made the marches so large in scale. It was at the very least a "Mexican patriot movement " as you previously mentioned.

Well; the Mexicans can take their patriot protests back home-------Mexico.

As for the others; I do not understand their rationale @ the protests as 'ethnic groups'-----the 'Irish' and Koreans are quite assimilated as Americans
