The civil rights movement , the many sacrifices made on the part of U.S. born descendants of slavery and/or other individuals have no connection to any movement to provide Amnesty/Dream Act for millions of illegal aliens who illegal migrate to the U.S. from around the world. Congressman John Lewis, protesting, promoting, and sticking his neck out for the illegal alien advocates. John Lewis is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.....AKA.....The Congressional Black Clueless.....or as Rush Limbaugh phrases it the Congressional Black Caucasians. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzhjB1iL_LQ YouTube: "Black People are too Ignorant" by ForTheRepubl1c, Oct 7, 2011 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUEl8WYDDusYouTube: “Interview with Terry Anderson, Part 1″ uploaded by crowdifornia, serenanocturna, June 10, 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SS-5u8CMB4YouTube: “Interview with Terry Anderson, Part 2″ uploaded by crowdifornia, serenanocturna, June 10, 2009 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA_ozCCksJI YouTube: "Jamiel Shaw and La County Vote to Boycott.wmv" uploaded by George Lauer, Jun 2, 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLGTw_1PpaUYouTube: “Diane Watson – Race Baiting Political whore” uploaded by TheWatchdog, June 6, 2006 I commend you, Marvin Stewart, former Board Director of the Minuteman Project and other Minutemen, for your understanding of a most important function of all elected officials and the duty of elected officials to respect the Constitution and his or her oath of office when serving U.S. citizens and legal immigrants. https://www.facebook.com/LamarSmithTX21?hc_location=stream “The Obama administration will allow illegal immigrants and amnesty supporters to stage a protest on the national mall, but refuses to allow our nation’s veterans to visit our national memorials. According to media reports, park rangers have been instructed to make life as ‘difficult for people as we can.’ Except the Administration appears to be rolling out the red carpet for illegal immigrants and the President’s supporters. So illegal immigrants get full access to the national mall for a protest, but our nation’s WWII veterans have to beg and plead to gain access to the WWII memorial that honors their sacrifice for our country. This is just another example of how the Obama administration puts the interests of illegal immigrants ahead of U.S. citizens.”- Congressman Lamar Smith Congressman Lamar Smith, it is good to know that elected officials like you still exist, who truly serve our U.S. veterans, uphold the "Oath of Office", the "U.S. Constitution", respect and serve the "will of the People of the United States of America". ******************************************************** http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-immigration-rally-20131009,0,315074.story"Democratic lawmakers among 200 arrested at immigration rally, Democratic Congress members, labor leaders and immigration advocates are arrested at a protest outside the Capitol calling for the House to vote on immigration legislation." by Becca Clemons, Los Angeles Times, October 8, 2013 WASHINGTON — Several members of Congress plus about 200 labor leaders and immigration advocates were arrested Tuesday outside the Capitol in a protest calling for the House to take up immigration reform, which stalled after passing the Senate. Demonstrators marched to the Capitol after a rally and concert on the National Mall. Many stood or sat in the street in what organizers called a campaign of civil disobedience. Democratic Reps. Charles B. Rangel and Joseph Crowley of New York, Raul M. Grijalva of Arizona, John Lewis of Georgia and Luis V. Gutierrez and Jan Schakowsky of Illinois were among those loaded into police vans. U.S. Capitol Police said they would be charged with "crowding, obstructing and incommoding," which is a misdemeanor. "My colleagues and I are not afraid to get arrested for what we believe is important to move America forward," Rangel said in a video posted to his Twitter account. Maria Elena Durazo, head of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, also was arrested. "We strongly believe we could get the majority between Democrats and some Republicans to pass immigration reform," she said beforehand. The National Mall was technically closed along with other sites managed by the National Park Service because of the partial government shutdown. Organizers were allowed to hold the rally, named Camino Americano, on 1st Amendment grounds. The same exception was granted to veterans visiting the National World War II Memorial, also on the National Mall, last week. Advocates held signs reading "Unite" and "Keep families together — immigration reform now." Three young boys wore shirts bearing the words, "Don't deport my dad." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco), joined on stage by about 15 lawmakers, told the rally crowd that immigrants "make America more American." She was interrupted by chants of "Si se puede" — Spanish for "Yes we can" — and "We need a vote." Pelosi praised an immigration bill proposed by House Democrats last week, which she said would be good for the economy and help reduce the deficit. The Democratic-controlled Senate passed a bipartisan immigration bill in July, but it failed to gain traction in the GOP-led House and is unlikely to pass in the current session. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), one of the strongest opponents of the Senate bill, criticized the rally and the proposed legislation. "There's something odd about House leaders like Nancy Pelosi protesting on the Mall to get jobs for illegal aliens and pushing legislation to reduce job opportunities for U.S. citizens," he said in a statement. The White House applauded what it called the "enthusiastic demonstration of support for immigration reform." "It is time for House Republicans to put politics aside and join Democrats to fix our broken immigration system and make the economy stronger," said a statement from Jay Carney, the White House press secretary. firstname.lastname@example.org Copyright © 2013, Los Angeles Times ********************************************************* http://discussions.latimes.com/20/lanews/la-na-immigration-rally-20131009/10These selected comments are on point: "John Lewis is a disgrace. Why does he want to keep his constituents unemployed and illegal aliens employed?"- wigglwagon , October 10, 2013 "It's about time someone arrested these traitors. Too bad they can't be deported like the millions of illegal aliens that they want to give amnesty to. We need our laws enforced and all illegal aliens deported.

The National Mall was supposed to be closed as part of the government shutdown...but apparently Mr. Obama is selective with his closure list."- dreamline, October 9, 2013 "What happened to the shutdown? Guess it's only for American citizens and those who made the sacrifice and served their country so these freaking moron liberals would have the freedom to spit in their face. Obama can shut down YOUR freedoms and lock down national open space monuments but he can't put a lock on our southern border? What is wrong with this picture?????"- moe_curly , October 9, 2013 "If we cannot pay for military funerals and cannot allow WW2 Veterans access to their own Memorial, how in God's name can we afford Immigration Reform for 11 million illegals? Pelosi praised an immigration bill proposed by House Democrats last week, which she said would be good for the economy and help reduce the deficit. President Obama is a lying coward hell bent on destroying the USA."- Cammo Berns , October 9, 2013 "My colleagues and I are not afraid to get arrested for what we believe is important to move America forward," Rangel said in a video posted to his Twitter account. Neither are the American People, but the American People must work to pay the taxes those folks are taking in Social Welfare. I gather their ability to vote has been diminished and that this form of protest is the only way they can thug us into providing their demands. Sad. And illegal aliens will decidedly take precedence over the Citizens of this nation if the crookedness of this position IS the social fabric. Rangel is talking like a raving racist these days, demanding his way, or no way. While we can, I suspect we had better do it as the law suggests we do it. Were there illegal aliens in that group? Detain them, and deport them. Nancy Pelosi has a very large vinyard in the Nappa country of California. She has made it clear she needs those illegal aliens to keep her vinyard running, and so.. we may have to drop a couple of notches on our belts."- joelwisch2, October 9, 2013 "You notice that the term “undocumented” isn’t even used much anymore? Now they’re cast as “immigrants”. I guess in the same way that bank robbers would be customers."- Rocky_xlv, October 9, 2013 "This is typical of leftwing libtvrd nut cases. If the agenda fits their pea brain, it's a happening regardless of the fact that it's a crime. These so-called lawmakers are breaking the law while keeping veterans away from monuments, laying off working folks while making sure those welfare checks get to the crack wh0res and queens. Breaking the law while denying death benefits to fallen heroes. And now your federal dollars will be paying for all prisoners' health care whether they be local, state or federal. Makes you proud doesn't it. Do you think they could just keep Nazi Pelosi and her conspirators in jail for a while"- cowboywill46, October 9, 2013 "Nancy Pelosi has a very large vinyard in the Nappa country of California.
