Yet another illegal immigration march was held on Saturday. This was in Atlanta and only an estimated 2000 people showed up. One of the organizers of the march was a former Mexican consul general. Two local Democratic Party elected officials led the march. This is yet another link between the Democratic Party and the Mexican government or institutions.
According to the report "Latinos call for legalization":
State Sen. Sam Zamarripa (D-Atlanta), state Rep. Pedro Marin (D-Duluth), Tisha Tallman, regional counsel for the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Jerry Gonzalez of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials walked arm-in-arm at the head of the march.
An AP report from Saturday ("Another immigration legalization rally held in Atlanta", link) included the news that one of the organizers of the march was Teodoro Maus, former Mexican consul in Atlanta.
What, you might ask, are two Democratic Party leaders doing marching at the front of a rally organized by a former Mexican government official and designed to support massive illegal immigration? It would be nice if someone would ask someone like, for instance, Howard Dean that question. Once again: until the Democratic Party purges itself of people like Zamarripa and Marin, should it be considered an American party at all?
