Thought this was interesting. This is really the height of hypocrisy and arrogance isn't it?
This guy wants the BENEFITS of being an American, yet looks down on America.
Pretty disgusting..
Why should we pay for his basic needs if he's here illegally,especially if he insults America.

Jonathan Perez, an undocumented black Colombian Indigenous attendee, shouted that U.S. citizenship and American identification shouldn’t be a desirable goal for undocumented people.

“What if we don’t want to be American?” Perez, who prefers to be identified by the pronoun “they,” said. “I don’t want to be American!”

“We don’t need your f****** papers; we need to dismantle the system,” they said, adding that citizenship should include basic human needs, such as housing or healthcare. "

We're mostly only a cash cow to them.

When someone is not part of the solution then they are part of the problem.
America works when we are all together and striving toward a common goal. It sounds like this new "immigrant" wants no part of the great melting pot so he should not get any benefits from it.


If this guy and others like him want nothing to do with America then rights should not be granted to them.
If he does not want to be American then I'm sure we can arrange for him to be deported back to where he came from.

That's a long way to write "felon." I think someone's getting paid by the word!

Don't you know? Citizenship only benefits whites...

__
"Yessica Gonzalez, Perez’s fellow protester, agreed. Gonzalez, who prefers to be identified by the pronoun “they,” wants the concept of immigrant rights to be based on justice and humanity, rather than citizenship.

“Citizenship only benefits white-skinned folks,” they said. “It’s time to reject blanket solutions for undocumented immigrants.”

Citizenship only benefits whites? "Immigrant" rights? Illegal aliens aren't "immigrants" nor are they "undocumented". How about they do get served justice which is deportation and then it will be humane to our own citizens.

Why don't you guys do something productive like go join a militia patrolling the border ?

That would be more beneficial than sitting in front of your laptops and railing against immigrants all day long.

No one is rallying against "immigrants". We oppose illegal aliens in our midst. I can't speak for the other members of this forum but I do plenty outside of this forum to combat illegal immigration. May I ask what you do to help?

Actually, with Obama's current immigration policies, that would mean illegals could shoot at us and we would not be allowed to shoot back, so why would we do that?

Was just pointing out illegals railing against America. . Sorry to have offended you with the truth.
These are their own words. No spin.
