Gearing up for President Obama’s illegal alien shamnesty speech tomorrow, the open-borders lobby is starting in again with demonstrations across the country.
Here’s the far Left L.A. Indymedia crowd crowing about a recent sit-in at GOP Rep. David Dreier’s office:
SAN DIMAS, California – About thirty constituents, immigrant rights activists, students, and community members entered Representative David Dreier’s office, requesting a meeting and answers to questions on his stance on immigration reform. When Dreier’s staff proved unresponsive to the request, activists declared they would not leave until their demands were met. They held the office for about an hour, withdrawing after negotiating with officials from the Los Angeles County sheriff’s office.
…Today’s action was part of a coordinated effort spearheaded by Reform Immigration for America (RIFA), a national organization made up of existing immigrant-rights groups, to force legislators to choose a side in the immigration debate, which has recently intensified due to Arizona’s passage of the enforcement-only law SB 1070. The essential question the campaign asks of representatives is “Are you on the side of reform or racism?” A similar action took place at the office of Representative Jerry Lewis of Redlands last week. Members of the RIFA campaign held a simultaneous action again today at Lewis’ office.
At about 10:30, the activists silently entered the second-story office, carrying pro-migrant signs…Escalation began, with the supporters in the room initiating the “whisper chant” “Dreier take a stand!” With that, staffer whispered an order to call the sheriff.
Negotiations continued as the activists made their demands clear: “We’ll accept a meeting with Dreier, a phone call from him, or a public statement. We’ll remain here until we get one of the three.” The chief of staff began asking the activists, who by this time had taken seats on the office floor, where they were from. “He automatically assumed that since we had brown faces, we were not his constituents,” one woman commented afterwards. “That was very offensive.”
The escalation continued, the chants increasing in volume and intensity…
Republicans better be prepared for more “escalation” and race-card antics. This is the Left’s livelihood and the stock and trade of Alinsky’s avenging angels.
Get prepared now, so you won’t be steamrolled later.
