National studies estimate the undocumented population in Oregon is somewhere between 150,000 and 175,000. Their family members, fellow Latino supporters, "bleeding hearts" who may have appeared on site motivated by a special interest, like cheap labor and not having to heed U.S. safety and health regulations, and politicians afraid they'll not get Latino votes if they don't do their bidding, accounting for numbers turning out to protest in much higher than the guesstimated count of illegal immigrants themselves.

I say let them come to the capitol and protest. It sounds like the perfect opportunity for a sting operation. They would need a military type operation though to secure the area and round up the criminals.

Even if the government caves and doesn't round them up, maybe the press will cover it enough to rile up a few more American citizens.

It is about time that they arrested them when they protest. The illegals make me sick with their demanding and whining about how they are treated. In fact, they should be treated even worse so they will leave our country.

Why do illegals have a right to assemble in this Country?

We are not permitted to do such in Mexico, per their constitution
