"What he is doing is intimidating all the working class immigrants of the United States," said one activist.Oddly, you need to watch the video to get the speaker's name: Omar Lopez. There's more information on him in a SunTimes article about the big Chicago protest ("Chicago 'Giant' put rest of country on notice"):
[The first meeting of March 10 organizers] was called by Arreola, 41, a high school custodian, official in an umbrella group of Michoacan clubs and an organizer in the Service Employees International Union Local 73. The other convener was Omar Lopez, 61, who runs a group that combats AIDS in the Latino community and serves on the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, an advisory council to Mexican President Vicente Fox.Well, that's certainly an interesting link, no?
But illegal immigrant advocates are calling this action and crackdown immoral and they are outraged. They are asking immigration officials to halt action until Congress comes up with its new laws because it might allow some immigrants to remain in the U.S.Assuming America loses and those new laws are passed, what happens when millions of new illegal aliens come to the U.S. in an attempt to take part in future amnesties? Won't those same groups that protested these raids simply protest future raids? Shouldn't they just be honest and admit that they want open borders?
