A busload of illegal immigrants has begun a month-long, cross-country tour of protests culminating at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., according to reports.
Approximately 30 men and women departed Phoenix, Ariz., on Sunday on a trip scheduled to hit states that have passed aggressive laws against illegal immigration, reports the Charlotte Observer.
The bus will pass through Colorado, New Orleans, Atlanta and several other cities en route to Charlotte, just before the start of the convention on Sept. 3, according to USA Today.
We are tired of the injustice, Fernando Lopez, an illegal immigrant who is originally from Mexico but now lives in Phoenix, told the Observer. We are tired of the indignity.
The civil-disobedience demonstrations during the convention will take place in Mecklenburg County, N.C., where police officers check the immigration status of those who are arrested. But a spokeswoman for the sheriffs office there told the Observer that officers will only detain illegal immigrants whove been arrested for committing a crime.
Fernando needs to get his a$$ back across the border.
I cannot believe what has happened to this country.
New democrat voters indicate their strong support for Obama
so who’s driving the bus?
and they could still be stopped. LEOs just have to be able to articulate why they stopped them. that could be as simple as failure to signal or weaving in their own lane.
So are we. Go home!
it’d be funny if Sherriff Joe stopped them and they all got deported.
Who do they think they are? They're here illegally, yet they think they can demand Americans obey their dictates? We must do as THEY say?
Screw them. Send then all home. No more "tolerance." America has enough problems because of Oboma. We have our own needs to contend with.
That would be sweet, indeed.
This is the MCSO calling.
Sorry, Wrong number
And Obamah has their backs! ...will only uphold certain laws.
” But a spokeswoman for the sheriffs office there told the Observer that officers will only detain illegal immigrants whove been arrested for committing a crime.”
Being here illegally IS committing a crime. Hello!
We owe them nothing. We didn't make them come here. If they don't like getting nothing, they can always go back home and rally their own governments for free stuff.
All illegals everywhere should get bussed to DOWNTOWN WASHINGTON DC...one way.
Only 30 of them? A bus seems like overkill...sometimes I see that many in a Chevy Cobalt.

Once again, no sign of ICE.
There, THAT looks much better.
Who’s paying for the bus?
If the United States took in all the people who live in third world hellholes - people who wanted to come here - there wouldn’t be room to turn around and sneeze... AND we’d become a third world hellhole..
