When will they learn that this is OUR country, and we don’t appreciate them marching in OUR streets demanding ANYTHING?

ATLANTA -- A six day walk for immigration rights in metro Atlanta is sparking anger and outrage.

Many CBS Atlanta viewers are demanding to know why people here illegally should get special treatment.

The march started in Gainesville and will end in Atlanta on Friday.

Many viewers demanded to know why they feel it's okay to break the law, calling illegal immigrants “free loaders who are breaking the law.”

We tried to talk to several protestors as they marched. The immigrants marching did not want to talk.

Don't they ever will, stupidity rules supreme with
fools, and they are that. Let them march. I hope they have a few Mexican flags to wave around. Sounds like the Mayday fiasco of the past. The American people seem to be wakeing up, and, thats a good thing.

I'm sure they didn't since there probably weren't any tax payer funded interpreters marching alongside them.

What I do find amazing is since Atlanta has a large American Black population that there was no 'dancing in the streets' against those illegal aliens and supporters. If the KKK pulled a similar stunt; there would have been trouble-----------and, rightly so.

Now, all these pro-illegals need to do is tell the locals that they're only doing the work that no lazy Americans will perform and tell them that this is 'their land.

But that's illegal,” said CBS Atlanta reporter Renee Starzyk.

“Yes it is,” said the protestor.

“Is that okay,” asked Starzyk.

“Not in the sense that it's going against the law,”

'Their land' BS would not apply to Aztecs, etc. as it is-----------they never ranged as far north as any part of the present day USA.

Besides: American Indians (who themselves arrived at different times of pre US/Mexican history) were simply defeated by a group of bigger and badder 'Indians' AKA people from Europe. Needless to say: I have no guilt over what happened-----------I have no control over the past.

I am not saying it was right; but, welcome to history----------and, it cannot be 'changed back'.

Most of these illegals dislike Euopeans and Africans but they often forget they are part European also. If this is what the future of the USA is I want out; serously. They make the dumbest people here seem smart.

It especially makes the working taxpaying Americans angry when streets are filled with Mexican-flag waving illegals, most from the housing projects, who block our way to work and have no regard for people trying to get to work. These people can get out and protest all day while the rest of us have to work for a living.

I recently visited Atlanta, and saw homeless Spanish-speaking women with their children begging for money. I also passed a park which was occupied by numerous black homeless families. The most heart-wrenching sight was a homeless black woman sitting on a sidewalk holding her infant. I couldn’t get the image of that poor baby out of my mind, and the next day returned to find her in the same location. I didn’t know if she was on drugs or just down on her luck, but I had to give her money for the baby.

The magnitude of destitution for many blacks in Atlanta was absolutely astonishing. I tend to believe many are simply too concerned with obtaining their next meal to be concerned with illegal aliens. Of course, there is a huge level of affluence among blacks in Atlanta. Perhaps they are simply too removed to even care about the impact of illegal immigration. I honestly don’t know.

So they are trying to take over Atlanta now too? I'm surprised there hasn't been a lot of trouble over these marches there.
