Upcoming Immigration Protest Related Lawsuits

I have enjoyed hearing about the protests in southern California with regards to the immigration legislation currently being discussed in Washington. There is just something about people demanding rights in this country while waving the flag of their country of origin that makes me laugh.

Tonight when taking a look at the main page of Fox News I ran into a picture that made me laugh for a moment... until I realized that will likely turn into a lawsuit and possibly result in the two police officers visibly involved getting spanked rather hard.

No doubt the parents of the student pictured will sue the city and the school for allowing this to happen, but also the parents of each and every student on the bus will file suit for the emotional trauma that their child suffered as a result of witnessing this (what will be called) brutality.

If you will excuse me, I need to get back telling my elected officials to support legislation that secures our border with more agents and a bigger fence, punishes employers who hire illegal's and criminalizes being in this country illegally.

In the mean time though, take a read of this wonderful post over on South Dakota Politics which puts all of this in an interesting light I think.

  • Here in Arizona, a local radio station played a sound clip of a Hispanic student who said that he is in the country legally and so it isn't right for him to be deported.

    So at least some of the protesters appear to be misinformed.

  • I am not surprised.

    I am thinking of starting a small campaign to make people agree to give up their citizenship and leave the country voluntarily should the worst happen as a result of their campaign to keep the borders insecure.

    Aside from the issue of immigration and ‘rights’ of those who cross into our country illegally, there is of course the omnipresent issue of security and the fact that if it is so easy for so many people to flood across the border to find work here... then it is equally as easy for a terrorist or other no-good-nicks to come across and have an easy avenue into the country so they can do their no good without it being know they are here until it’s too late.

    My idea... have every single American citizen who is against the strengthening of the southern border (including most of the immigration nuts we saw protesting in LA over the weekend (the citizens at least)) to agree to renounce their US citizenship and leave this country forever if there is ever a terrorist attack on US soil that was made possible by lax border security.

    Call me crazy... but it seems like a fair deal... if they believe so much that it is important to keep the borders porous... then they should be willing to give up a great deal if people die as a result of their support.
