Immigration Protests Hit Miami's Streets
The protesters tell CBS4 they are prepared to break the law, by engaging in what they called ‘acts of civil disobedience’, to express their anger at the proposed changes to US immigration law.
Excuse me, they are not even US citizens. "Prepared to break the law? "Civil acts of disobedience"?
The arrogance shown is beginning to frighten, and concern me.
Protests? I think not, more along the lines of riots! These riots were Nation wide!
Police were taken away from their duties in order to attempt to gain control of the mobs.
Busses were brought in to round them up.
Tax payer money, the security of our U.S. cities all were at risk!

"When you're walking the wrong way on a freeway where cars are going 75 miles an hour, that has nothing to do with free speech; that's insanity," Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton said. "We cannot tolerate that."
A 14-year-old tried to grab a deputy's "beanbag" shotgun from his hand, prompting the deputy to fire two beanbag rounds at him, Rogers said. The teen ran into the crowd but was pulled out by deputies who arrested him.
When students walk out of class, their schools stand to lose thousands of dollars in state funding. The state calculates how much money schools get based on how many students are in class. Schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, for example, receive $28.13 a day for each student.
The district may have lost more than $1 million in two days of demonstrations, based on the number who walked out.

Some students hurled food, milk cartons and plastic bottles at officers, prompting law enforcement to shoot pellets filled with pepper spray at the crowd's feet, police said. Three boys threw chunks of concrete at officers and were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Oceanside Sgt. Leonard Mata said.
“The rest of the city is operating with a skeleton crew right now,” Mata said.
About 20 sheriff's deputies and several California Highway Patrol officers were called in to help.
Poor education and school overcrowding - consequences of mass immigration
• The California State Department of Education estimates that 16 new classrooms will need to be built every day, seven days a week, for the next five years. That's effectively one new school per day! The number of teachers will need to be doubled within ten years, meaning that 300,000 new educators will need to be required.
• Immigration will account for 96 percent of the increase in the school-age population over the next 50 years. If mass immigration continues, the education of all children in America will continue to be undermined. Education costs will continue to escalate and quality of education will continue to decline.
• The total K-12 school expenditure for illegal immigrants costs the states $7.4 billion annually—enough to buy a computer for every junior high student nationwide.
It has been said by a protestor in Chicago
that this may be the start of an immigration civil rights movement.
Again arrogance is the word. How can one even possibly form the idea that
they can be allowed to protest their civil rights, when indeed they are not citizens.
Illegal aliens do not, and should not have the rights of United States citizens!
We are being taken down from within! Mark my word!
