I hope more of them come out waving signs and more ICE show up to arrest them every time they do.

I can't remember any law other than the one on immigration ever being protested like this, which is kind of interesting.

Illegal aliens cost TX taxpayers a BUNDLE, not only in dollars but in crime.

Most of the protesters I have seen get pretty ugly, which is not a part of a legal protest, adds that little extra something to cause them to be detained and on the road to deportation.

Most of those protesters were either American citizens or legal immigrants. Any that got out of hand were arrested.

What's really galling is illegal aliens, who have no business being here, protest and demand that they be allowed to stay here. And, yes, ICE should be there. Just their presence would cause many illegals to scatter.

Not even comparable.
Protests by illegals or in favor of giving them a pass is more agin to a prison protest because the inmates want HBO.

Not the same thing at all. You are talking about minorities, citizen minorities denied rights that other citizens had, well, except for abortion since I never wanted the right to end the life of my baby.

Any of those citizens protesting about not getting equal rights, again I have no idea what the deal is when someone wants to end the life of their baby as this is a "unique" affliction, were arrested if they became violent. I remember the civil rights movement, I was living it, and this involved citizens fighting for equal rights as did voting for women. These were not people that had broken the laws and now were demanding the laws be changed to suit them.

.

Exactly! Those people have broken the law, are here unlawfully and now want the law they broke changed to make them legal. They are criminals or unlawfully present and protesting the laws they broke.

Good example.

Or, a woman marching before abortion carrying her dead fetus demanding that abortion be legalized and expecting it not to be a legal issue for her. She already was involved in breaking the law and now is demanding the law be changed to make what she did legal.

These people have broken the law and are now demanding the law be changed. I haven't seen that. Imagine a bunch of drunk teens marching to demand underage drinking be allowed.

Since we can't seem to post images themselves on here any longer, I am posting two very interesting links to signs that ICE (under obama) failed to notice?
