The St Cloud MN Times had an article in their paper today of a busload of peacefull protesters who traveled to the RNC in St Paul.

They came from Little Falls and Brainerd (not many Hispanics there )

They were interviewed, and one of their "causes" was more rights for ILLEGALS.

Somehow I think the ILLEGALS already have too many "rights"

The crowd of at least 20,000--march organizers estimated the crowd at as many as 50,000--was made up of antiwar activists, veterans and military families, students, immigrant rights supporters, unionists, welfare rights activists and many more. Protesters carried handmade signs, some wore "Make out, not war" stickers and Obama T-shirts, and everyone relied on a great deal of sunscreen to fend off the midday sun and 90-plus degree temperatures.

We are here to fight for our rights, stop deportations and stop the raids," said Martinez. "Let's face the problem, and let's come out with real immigration reform. We don't have to wait for the election. We are suffering today. We are dying today. Why do we have to wait for tomorrow? We have to act and demonstrate today for our rights, and continue to fight until we have real immigration reform."

Yo dude, I agree with you, you should have rights. I also agree you need to face the problem and shouldn't wait for Mexico's next election. Now go home, face them and demand the rights you are entitled to in your own country.
