Countdown to May Day: The open borders circus returns

On Thursday, the reconquista militants, illegal alien lobbyists and lawyers, multicultural mau-mau-ers, and assorted anti-border goons will turn out across the country for another May Day open borders spasm.

Los Angeles police are undergoing crowd control training to prevent a repeat of the Macarthur Park riots last year.

College students and Catholic priests will join the “Gran Marcha” to demand amnesty and non-enforcement of immigration laws.

In Madison, Wisconsin, illegal immigration apologists will protest Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney’s practice of notifying federal officials of jailed inmates’ immigration status.

Bay Area anti-war activists are riding the wave and will join open-borders groups to harass both recruiters and ICE agents. Because it’s all about sticking it to The Man.

In Chicago, open-borders exploiters will be bringing back poor Saul Arellano:

Looking smart in a yellow dress shirt and a navy blazer, Saul Arellano was a reluctant speaker at the service in his honor Sunday.

Although he stood on an orange chair to deliver a brief statement in Spanish, the language he says he’s most comfortable with after nearly 8 months living in Mexico, the 9-year-old son of controversial Immigration activist Elvira Arellano was shy in front of the television cameras pointed in his direction.

But the 30 people gathered at Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood doted on their “Saulito” all the same..

Saul—who has lived with his mother in Mexico since shortly after her deportation in August—returned to Chicago on Sunday to participate in Immigration-reform events scheduled for later this week, said Emma Lozano, his legal guardian in the United States…

…During the service, Saul also presented flowers on behalf of his mother to Flor Crisostomo, 29, who has taken sanctuary in the church over the last three months. Crisostomo, a friend of Elvira Arellano, was ordered deported in January after being arrested in a 2006 Immigration raid on IFCO Systems, where she worked as a pallet loader.

After the service, Saul said he was a little nervous about participating in the May 1 protests scheduled in Chicago.

“I want to be a regular kid, but I can’t,” he said. Then, he elaborated in Spanish to Lozano.

“He said he should be a child who is free, not a child who has to continually struggle to defend his mother,” Lozano translated.

Tell that to the mother.

Stay tuned for much more.
