I am sick and tired of all the media coverage of the illegal protests by the illegal aliens. I consider these protests illegal because Americans would not have the same rights to protest in Mexico even if they were there legally.
I think the U.S. government missed an excellent opportunity to deport perhaps as many as 1 million illegals back to their beloved countries. I hope those plants and farms that were shut down due to the protest are the next ones to be raided!
I, for one, am staging my own protest. I will not visit any Hispanic-owned business that failed to open on Monday, May 1, and I challenge everyone else to do the same. ...
I have two other problems with the protest. First, many signs said America is a nation of immigrants. This is true, but the immigrants were legal immigrants.
Secondly, why did the immigrants not choose to protest on Sept. 11, 2001? Had the illegal immigrants protested that day, we would still have the World Trade Center buildings in New York and hundreds of lives saved since those terrorist were illegal immigrants.
Thanks, but no thanks, illegals! I hope many of you find yourselves without jobs now.
