Rather than seeking amnesty for lawbreakers, they should send cards to the governments of illegal aliens. Ask THEM to treat their citizens humanely. Why is the U.S. obligated to provide for foreigners rejected by their own countries?

AURORA | A local immigrant rights group is planning to visit area businesses this weekend, seeking the businesses’ support for comprehensive immigration reform.

The group, Rights for All People, said in a statement that its members will visit a range of business in Aurora on Saturday to ask businesses to sign cards urging Congress to pass immigration reform.

The cards, which say: “All I want for Christmas is just and humane immigration reform,” will be sent to politicians later this month.

As part of the campaign, the group also has a holiday party planned for Dec. 19 at Aurora Central High School that will feature a play that about the struggles immigrants face in Colorado.
Be sure to attend that play Benicar.

I would, if not for a scheduling conflict. On that date, I will be attending a rally to stop the heartless separation of “undocumented” families.

I'll be busy that day, too...I'm attending a support rally for businessmen whose employees are being told they SHOULD be able to get amnesty. If they do that, their employers will no longer be able to afford their labor. Amnesty is the worst thing that could possibly happen to this sort of business, and I figure these employers need my support. We're trying to convince people that if they become LEGAL, their employers may have to fire them.

Punch and cookies will be served.

These people should have been "protesting" and getting support for their cause before they chickened out and left their old Countries.

Why do they call themselves "Immigrant Rights Groups" when it isn't immigrants they are defending but illegal alien invaders?

Typical of criminals: they try to drag honorable people down with them.

Because "Illegal Immigrant Rights Group" would annoy the public, cause contributions to drop off, and cause widespread embarrassment to the membership.

They're ILLEGAL, not STUPID !.......

Although; their stupidity manifested itself quite well with their inane illegal 'immigrants' rights' marches in May 2006----------especially coming on the eve of the Great Recession. And the fallout of both events is still being felt.
