Bob Menendez: legalizing illegal aliens is "the civil rights issue of our time"; Jamie Duffy fails at reporting - 04/27/09
Perhaps sending a "social correspondent" to cover the Luis Gutierrez' "Family Unity Tour" isn't such a good idea. Yet, the New Jersey Star Ledger sent their Jaime Duffy to cover the tour's appearance in Morristown, New Jersey (link). The event featured an appareance by Bob Menendez, who said: ...amnesty will "ultimately nullify the need for a 287(g)"... ..."This is the civil rights issue of our time," Menendez told the audience.

Flor Crisostomo: the new Elvira Arellano (sanctuary at Adalberto United Methodist Church) - 01/27/08
Via this we learn that Reverend Walter "Slim" Coleman's Adalberto United Methodist Church continues the struggle for in effect open borders with the announcement that they'll be giving "sanctuary" to another illegal alien, Flor Crisostomo. That church grabbed headlines recently for hosting Elvira Arellano, before she was arrested and deported to Mexico, where she remains. Crisostomo's statement says in part: "I am taking a stand of civil disobedience... I believe with all my heart that the United States and Mexico must end the system of undocumented labor." Obviously, "civil disobedience"...
Elvira Arellano - the illegal alien who was ordered to be deported after being convicted of using a false Social Security number and who's been holed up in a Chicago church for a year and who's only a sympathetic figure to those on the far-left - has left her "sanctuary" and is currently on a road trip.
Here's something I did not know. Emma Lozano (of Chicago's Pueblo Sin Fronteras/Centro Sin Fronteras) is married to the Reverend Walter "Slim" Coleman. The latter is the pastor of the church where Elvira Arellano has sought "refuge" rather than abiding by a deportation order. Arellano and Lozano have together called for a "campaign of resistance" to prevent deportations of other illegal aliens.
Church in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. Run by Walter Coleman ("Slim").
