RADIO AD AGAINST SB1070 ON DODGERS RADIO LISTEN TO IT HERE:
About 35 immigrant advocates have been arrested in front of the White House fence, including a U.S. congressman, after they sat down and defied orders from police.
Protesters are usually required to stay in motion when demonstrating in front of the White House. U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois was among those detained on a nearby bus.
Many of those arrested Saturday held letters of a sign saying, “Obama, Stop Deporting our Families.”
Hundreds of protesters turned out for the rally at Lafayette Park, urging President Barack Obama to fulfill his campaign promises to achieve immigration reform.
The immigrant experience, the reality of what is isn’t being diffused is upsetting , repulsive, ,appalling, deplorable, and ghastly… Pure and unmitigated indignation. Everyday the hate breeds more and more, and things become grossly enveloped in sadistic animosity , and ugly, gratuitous violence. For immigrants the situation has advanced far past just being looked down on & being told to go home. The fact of the matter is that there are people in high places who have set out on a mission to make their lives a living hell as a form of “lesson”. They claim to be patriotic citizens, upholders and advocates of the law. Immigration Nazis is what they truly are. It is “their America” & their “struggle.” Let us take a closer look at their despotic, tyrannical tactics. A fine example of those executing unjust and morally reprehensible acts wholeheartedly & with a fervent passion is Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County Arizona, better known to Immigration reformists & human rights activist as public enemy #1.
“In 2007, reporters Paul Giblin and Ryan Gabrielson began investigating Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona. Their findings (as many of you know) were that Arpaio’s hellbent focus on hunting down undocumented immigrants was detrimental to overall public safety in the county. The five-piece set of articles entitled “Reasonable Doubt” highlighted the racial profiling inherent in Arpaio’s 287(g) campaign.”- http://standing-firm.com/tag/joe-arpaio
For many ICE has become the new Gestapo.
