That makes no sense. What makes them any less illegal than an illegal alien from anywhere else?

Rather curious that a labor union organizer is defending illegal aliens. Labor unions are supposed to be striving for higher pay, which is hardly possible when we're flooded with excess illegal laborers. They're also supposed to be fighting for better benefits and working conditions, which is also not going to be happening if their workforce is composed of a bunch of illegals who are "just happy to be working here", who are too scared to rock the boat and know their rights.

Political furor erupted Friday against Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez for requiring local jails to detain immigrants in the country illegally at the behest of the federal government, effectively abandoning Miami-Dade’s stance as a “sanctuary” county.

Immigration advocates descended on County Hall, staging a protest — called on short notice — of more than 100 people that forced an extraordinary lockdown of the Stephen P. Clark Center in downtown Miami to keep the demonstrators out.

“Hey, Gimenez, shame on you!” Miami labor union organizer Kathy Bird Carvajal shouted into a megaphone. “You are an immigrant, too.”

"Immigration advocates"

I don't think that is the phrase I would use because it is NOT accurate.

My parents are LEGAL Chinese and Taiwanese immigrants. My entire Asian American family, including all of our relatives (except for 2 cousins who have been brainwashed by liberal college professors and high school teachers) truly despise and hate illegal aliens. Our experience is NOTHING like theirs. We have NOTHING in common with them.

My life experience except for some minor Asian cultural influences at home, is that of the mainstream Southern culture I grew up in. I do not identify with illegal aliens. I identify with my friends and others in my community who have had their jobs destroyed by illegal immigration (and my free trade and EPA regulations), with our local blue collar communities that are being invaded by illegal aliens and Section 8 people from the ghetto and with fellow Christians who are under attack both at home and abroad. (and yes, Christians are the most oppressed and endangered people in Syria and most definitely should have priority in being granted refugee status).
Excellent post.

I hope Trump can stay strong but the forces against him are very prolific.

This is so well said, IMO. They put in these words and as posted, people grab on to them without thinking it through.......the extreme rhetoric.....

What a stupid bet you'd be making. Illegals are illegal - it doesn't matter where they're from.

You want to make this about something it's not about. Many Mexicans have a problem with people entering illegally. What would you suggest their agenda is?

As far as Gimenez, he is a Cuban-American (and white) so he did not have the typical experience of legal or illegal immigrants. His legal status was nothing short of a handout.
That's because most of the illegals are from Mexico. Most immigrants here from Europe and Asia are here legally. Mexico is dumping all of their anchor babies on us. Why should people from Mexico get a better deal than everyone else in the world? If we didn't have to take in so many people from Mexico we could let in more refugees.

Another poster looking for an agenda in all of this.

There are two issues at hand. One is the country we border where MILLIONS of people (who happen to not be white) have entered illegally, and the other is the issue of people overstaying visas (who come in all varieties of colors and hues). Trump is dealing with the first issue right away, not because they are not white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant, but because it's been a big drain and problem for years and years. And he's not deporting all illegals, he said he's going after the criminals. Why anyone would have a problem with that indicates they're just looking for something to b*tch and moan about, are illegal, or care more about non-Americans than Americans.

All certain people and groups are doing is ensuring that in four years, someone like Trey Gowdy will be elected. If you don't know what his position is on illegals, do youtube it at some point. It's quite entertaining to see him dismantle the dopes who are pro-ilegal entry.
