llegals Visit Capitol Hill, Demand Amnesty Through Executive Orders

Penny Starr, CNS News, May 9, 2014

To mark May Day last week, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) invited people who are in the country illegally to Capitol Hill where they released a list of executive orders they believe President Barack Obama should put in place, including stopping all deportations and bringing back deportees who have family here.

At the event, held in the Canon Office Building, seven people who are part of a “Blue Ribbon Commission”–six illegal aliens and an immigration attorney–that released a list of 14 things Obama could do (according to legal scholars they consulted with) to provide amnesty to millions without congressional approval.

“We insist that the timing [of the executive orders] be immediate and the scope be as broad and bold as possible,” a summary of the commission’s findings states.

The group, dubbed #Not1More, included Angel Hernandez-Gomez “a young undocumented and queer organizer from Durham, N.C.,” who is “committed to defending his family, and all women, trans people, sex workers and other people of color from the fear of deportation,” according to his biography distributed at the event.

Maricela Munoz has been in the country illegally for 12 but now faces deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an accident.

“I want to ask President Obama and also the rest of the Congress both and elected officials to be able to also touch their heart, their humanity,” Munoz said through a translator. “To think about, when they think about our cases and deliberate our futures and our destinies that they think about with a different level of humbleness and acknowledgment of the suffering and the sacrifices that our people have made to just be here.”

    They should be identified, arrested, and deported.

      Well maybe they were arrested but… were freed with the other 36,000 convicted criminals illegals released to the streets in 2013:
      “A total of 36,007 criminal illegal immigrants that were being processed
      for deportation were freed in 2013. Together, they committed nearly
      88,000 crimes, according to the report, published Monday.”

      200 murderers, over 400 rapists, and 300 kidnappers… 16,000 driving under the influence, 2,700 convicted of assault, 1,300 convicted for domestic violence, and nearly 1,300 convicted for battery.

      If Ariel Castro was an illegal… he would have been freed!

    Hell – I’m surprised they weren’t nominated to be in NoBama’s cabinet.

  • Puggg

    Illegal aliens got into the Cannon House Office Building.

    I think you need valid ID to do that.

    • Petronius

      These guys have lots of IDs. They have whole portfolios of IDs.

      They change IDs like we change our socks.

    • Greg Thomas

      Not if you are an illegal invading mexican apparently.

  • KevinPhillipsBong

    “Apparently not ‘living in the shadows.'”

    — Or perhaps the shadows are getting longer in the West.

  • ncpride

    I hope they continue with their ‘demands’… it only serves to make Americans very angry, and their sob stories scoffed at. The comments on nearly every site, even liberal ones, confirm this.

  • JSS

    Ah look at those natural republicans. Out demanding the President use more executive powers so they can have more free stuff then they already have. How conservative. How are these people living in the shadows again?

  • The group included “Angel Hernandez-Gomez, a young undocumented and queer organizer who is committed to defending his family, and all women, trans people, sex workers and other people of color from the fear of deportation” – Proof that Mexico always gives us their finest! This squat monster’s a double-whammy! He’s not only here illegally, but he’s obviously been guzzling the Leftist Kool-Aid for too long.

  • Amren, the Tea Party, or somebody who stands for honor should send a group to these types of now common events and make citizens arrests on the illegals. I would expect the amren group to be the ones actually arrested, but the symbolism of this act of sacrifice in support of law would be enormous. Imagine the youtube views.

  • IstvanIN

    And the real enemy is Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.)!

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Grijalva (Dope-Ariz) is a dimwitted idiot championing for “rights” for his people.

      It is the elected and unelected officials who allow Grijalva and other racists of his ilk to get away with what they do who are the REAL ENEMIES.

  • Truthseeker

    So people who aren’t even legal inhabitants of this country believe they have the right to demand things from our elected leaders. Throw these invaders out. This country owes them nothing.

    • IstvanIN

      But our “elected” leaders listen to them. Martial law might get better results.

  • borogirl54

    Why weren’t these people arrested and sent to ICE for deportation? Obama is not going to do anything for them. If he does, he will wait until after the election.

    Crime is a product of fear. The fear of life is the cause of all our anti-social, self-destructive, neurotic habits of behavior and relationship with one another, and with the earth itself. We have found that a simple act that we call ‘looking at yourself’ washes away the fear of life and heals the mind of anyone who will try it just once:

    1. Close your eyes. Notice the symphony of sensations and thoughts about sensations rising and falling within you.

    2. Notice that you can move your attention to one or another sensation or thought at will.

    3. Now use that same beam of attention to look for the feel of what you would call ‘me’ – a faint sensation that is what you feel like to yourself.

    4. Try to ‘look at yourself’ whenever the thought of it comes to you. You cannot fail if you just try.

    That’s it, you’ve done all that needs to be done to bring you home to the beauty and satisfaction that are to be found in a human life lived without fear.

      What kind of psychobabble are you trying to peddle here?

    • awb

      Tired of posting that yet ?

    Maricela Munoz has been in the country illegally for 12 but now faces deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an accident.

    Maricela Munoz, who has lived in Georgia illegally for 12 years, fought back tears as she told the story of how she was facing deportation after driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an automobile accident.

    Driving without a license and fleeing the scene of an accident?

    Whatever could be wrong that if one is an illegal alien? They have RIGHTS, more rights than YOU who are licensed, registered, insured!!

    Ask Sen. Schumer how tough it is to be an illegal in Amerikka in this day and age:

    “When people are living in undocumented status, there are times, I suppose, when they’ve made up identities, made up Social Security numbers. How are they going to remember all that? (The) purpose of this bill is to bring people out of the shadows. We all know when they lived in the shadows, they had to forge documents, forge Social Security numbers, et cetera. I just don’t see how, when you’ve lived here 10 years, and you’ve had many different identities, many different numbers, you’re going to remember them all?”

    How DARE you complain when your ID is stolen! ID theft is a victimless crime!!

    As for Mz. Munoz who never bothered to learn English after 12 years and thinks it’s A-OK to drive without a license and flee the scene of an accident:

    ‘I want to ask President Obama and also the rest of the Congress both and elected officials to be able to also touch their heart, their humanity,’ Munoz said through a translator. ‘To think about, when they think about our cases and deliberate our futures and our destinies that they think about with a different level of humbleness and acknowledgment of the suffering and the sacrifices that our people have made to just be here.’

    Boo Hoo Hoo. Where’s my crying rag and violin.

  • Alucard_the_last

    If the illegals in Mexico did this, they would have been arrested, beaten and shoved over their southern borders. This happens all the time but to actually come out of the closet in Mexico City would be suicidal.

  • Nancy Thomas

    SEND THEM BACK!!!!!

  • TXCriollo

    Really scared of being deported after no licence and fleeing an accident

  • r j p

    Every Monday at noon the illegals protest outside the Department of Homleand Security (INS) building in Chicago.

  • WR_the_realist

    When are the Democrats going to invite automobile thieves to congress in order to make the case for their amnesty?

  • TXCriollo

    This is just sad, first this congressman should be tried for treason, second they should have all been arrested and deported from the Capitol
