We've come a loooooong way from the days when the First Presidency issued a
statement encouraging the Saints to observe May 1st as Law Day, a day when we
celebrate the rule of law in the United States.In 1977 the First
Presidency issued a very nice statement about Law Day. It was published in the
June 1977 Ensign.May Day has a vastly different meaning to some groups
today, and it has nothing to do with the May Pole.
Glad to see someone handed out US flags this time...
What right do illegal aliens have to demand anything in this country? They sneak
in here under cover of darkness, knowing full well they are breaking our laws,
and then march in demonstrations to demand citizenship. Only in America!If the governor of Oregon is so anxious to score points and appease
these illegals, then by all means, lets bus them all there, settle them in, and
hand out drivers licences.If ICE was allowed to actually do their
jobs correctly under current laws as written, they would attend these rallies,
find those who are undocumented and start deportation processes immediately.Though mostly decent people, many are unskilled and uneducated migrants
who ironically are allowed free schooling, free medical care, food stamps and
other welfare benefits. Few pay taxes. These people are costing the USA much,
much more than they contribute. They've strained the budgets of many
hospitals and school districts. It's sometimes cheaper for hospitals to fly
them back home in jets than provide all the medical attention they seek. They are also suppressing local wages while taking jobs away from
unemployed Americans.As such, they have no rights at all to
demonstrate and make demands!
Turn out was not so good in Chicago. About 2,000 turned out to hear Senator
Durbin pitch the once-in-a-lifetime amnesty plan.In 2006 the crowd was
400,000, then 150,000 in 2007.Maybe this Gang of Eight plan isn't as
popular as they suppose it to be.
