Agreed. Obviously, they learned nothing from the huge backlash following their massive marches in 2006. The only lesson they’ve learned, is to limit the number of Mexican flags. They now realize that’s a BIG no-no.

Oops, not so peaceful. An anarchist group had signs advocating the assassination of Sheriff Joe (yeah that was peaceful alright) and a small group of people got arrested after attacking a mounted police office AND THE HORSE (where's PETA when you need them?); I trust they did this peacefully, though...And lookie, Linda Ronstadt was there saying they should be given work visas so they can make money and then go home where they really want to be. Leave it to the rich, fat and STUPID not to know there ISN'T any work in Phoenix, they're here because they're getting bennies that are bankrupting Arizona, but Linda doesn't want to donate HER money, just ours. Hey Linda, if they want to be home, has it occurred to you to go and fight corruption in MEXICO?? HELLO! With their resources they should have at least the same opportunities there that we're being bled for here.

But it is true that this stuff creates a backlash and that can be a very good think in an election year.

They're only making fools of themselves. What do they have to hold against Sherriff Joe? He hasn't violate one Law or Constitutional right( as if they had any)

From the article:

Quote:
"Babies are being separated from their mamas, and families are being split up in the process, all in the name of anti-immigration," said the Rev. Liana Rowe of Shadow Rock United Church of Christ in Phoenix.
Isn't this what happens when criminals who are legally here are sent off to prison or even jail? So, why do they always try to say this about deporting illegal immigrants?

Easy counter.

Americans should march too. However, instead of marching against illegals, march against the companies that hire them.

Hold signs up high with company and CEO names on them.

Here goes some companies: http://www.wehirealiens.com/browse/index.asp

There you go, by Americans attacking the companies it will show 2 major things imo:
1) Americans know who is at the root of this problem.
2) Stop the endless cycle of racism allegations (make race a non-factor)
