Immigration rally was uniquely American

The other day our good friend Stefan chose to comment on Monday’s massive immigration rally by posting a photo sent to him by one of his readers. No, it wasn’t a dramatic snapshot of 25,000 peaceful protesters marching through streets… it was a picture of an identified person (gasp) registering people to vote. Stefan quoted the following description:

“There were people running around registering illegals to vote. And it was obviously illegals they were focused on.”

Uh-huh.

“Obviously illegals”…? And how can Stefan and his reader be so sure? I can only assume it’s because these people looked illegal. (You know… they were brown.)

What might not be so obvious is that while WA state’s hispanic population is estimated at around 460,000 our total number of illegal immigrants is estimated at only 136,000. Go ahead, check out the stats.

And of course, not all of our illegal immigrants are hispanic. Indeed, while an estimated 11.3 percent of WA’s population is foreign born, only 22.4 percent of these are originally from Mexico. Fellow (un)Sounder Jim Miller wondered “what happened to all those Mexican flags” he had expected to see, and abused the Seattle Times and Seattle P-I for not asking the same question. But for some reason he didn’t bother to ask where all the Chinese flags were… despite the fact that a whopping 41.9 percent of our state’s foreign born population was born in Asia.

But the obvious answer to why so many protesters were flying American flags is that these people love America! These are people who struggled to come to this nation, seeking better lives for themselves and their children… these are people who seek the freedom and economic opportunity that has long made America the envy of the rest of the world.

These are people who carried American flags, while marching through the American streets, protesting American policies. What could be more American than that?

    RE immigration.

    Voter registration requires a id or a utility bill (which also requires an id) If one fills out the mail in registration, one is required to show an id before getting a ballot.

    RE central WA. Since the care and harvest of orchards, nuts, stone fruit, mint and hops have utilized migrant (mostly illegal yes) labor since the 70’s, many of the grandparents may be illegal, but most of the current population in the upper and lower valley are actually natural born citizens and yet still brown, voters, and demonstrating under provisions of the bill of rights to the constitution.

    While that may not make up for their being “brown” in the eyes of the wingnuts, it does not mean they will vote as Democrats.

    The current Pope (aka Joey the Rat) replaced both of the moderate bishops in eastern WA with Spanish speakers who are not shy about insisting to their overwhelmingly Catholic parishioners that it is a sin to vote for non wingnuts or anyone who cares about children *after* they are born.

    So Dems cannot count on legal immigrants tilting the vote in Central or Eastern WA until the 3rd or 4th generation realize they are being manipulated by those who do not have their best interest in mind.

    OVER 99.5% OF MEXICAN CITIZENS IN UNITED STATES DON’T BOTHER TO VOTE IN THEIR OWN ELECTIONS!

    There are an estimated 10 million adult Mexican citizens in the USA, including both legal immigrants and illegal aliens.

    Mexico recently passed a law to allow Mexican citizens residing outside the country to vote by absentee ballot.

    However, only 56,749 absentee ballot applications were timely submitted by Mexicans living outside the country. The vast majority of these applications, of course, were from Mexicans in the USA.

    This means that 99.5% of the eligible Mexican electorate residing in the USA is refusing to participate in their own country’s election.

    “Uniquely American”???? WTF??? You gotta be kidding ! When did we decide that non citizens get a vote or even an influence on Murka’s policies? Ya ever hear of “sovereignty”? That’s a grown up word that means “feriners should STFU”.

    Take this the logical next step. Should we ask france to approve Murka’s gummint policies? Or the UN? Or… should we just abolish the concept of nations and just be one big happy global family?

    I support immigration because the immigrants, business, and Murkan consumers are better off economically because of it. But if we decide to let them in, it’s because WE decided to do it. They don’t get a say.

    Goldy,

    I challenge your source of statistics about the number of illegal aliens in Washington. You have used StateMaster.Com

    That source shows a total of just under 7 million illfor the entire United States of America:

    http://www.statemaster.com/gra.....of_ill_imm

    Most reputable sources estimate the number in the USA as a whole at approximately 12 million.

    So obviously StateMaster.Com has grossly underestimated the number of illegal aliens in Washington as being only 136,000.

    The Pew Hispanic Center estimate of 250,000 illegal aliens in Washington is much more like it.

    I love people like this fucking clown JCH.

    They support the party that has done everything they can to make sure that there is no way for employers to check an employees legal status and they have kept all penalties off employers. They do nothing about border security. They let millions upon millions of illegals into the country during Republican Administrations. They support NAFTA which has been a virtual HIGHWAY for illegal immigration.

    Then when literally millions of illegal immigrants send the IRS and Social Security administration obviously bogus SS ID numbers EVERY YEAR OF THE BUSH PRESIDENCY AND OF COURSE THE ADMINISTRATION DOES NOTHING they still, somehow, think that Republicans oppose illegal immigration. This despite the fact that every Republican business paper is applauding Bush’s Guest Illegal program and every business association that depends on illegal labor supports the Republicans.

    It’s stupidity on such an enormous scale you’d think even Republicans would be unequal to it.

    Now I remember! It was declassified on July 18,2003!!!!

While Mr. Libby said he gave that information “exclusively” to the Times reporter at their breakfast meeting at the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, many of the findings of the estimate were formally declassified and discussed at a White House press briefing ten days later, on July 18, 2003.”

    What Goldy didn\'t say is usually more interesting than what he did. spews:

    Sorry to rain on your parade lefties, but there are a few factual problems with Goldy’s reporting, as usual. First of all, read around the web a bit. I know it will be challenging for you to go to a few conservative blogs, but when you do, you will find that contrary to what Goldy is reporting, there were a lot of Mexican flags. There are many, many pictures posted all over the blogosphere that also show the placards handed out by socialist groups like A.N.S.W.E.R. There were a lot of American Flags, but there were a lot of other flags and other signs indicating a less than “wholesome American demonstration” impression with which Goldy wants you to come away.

    Second, the truth is that the protests had a far more negative impact than many were lead to believe reading the MSM or left leaning bloggers like Goldy. Go here to read a Zogby poll: http://zogby.com/news/ReadNews.dbm?ID=1100 It appears that the protestors probably did more to harm the immigrant cause than help it, and that could easily have some backlash in November. It appears Americans don’t trust Democrats or Republicans to truly fix the problems and address immigration and security. But to frame the issue as simply a protest on the denial of rights to a particular group on behalf of Americans, is naive, shallow, and innacurate.

    Third, it’s innacurate to represent the sum of SP views as assuming that all registration activities at the protests were automatically attempts to register illegals. One reader made the comment, but just look at the readers here. One reader certainly does not constitute the overall opinion of this blog, or anything approaching sanity. If you actually read the comments, you will see that most of the readers of SP are offended by the unwillingness of the registers to make any distinction or effort to assure that those registering, were in fact legal residents. One register when questioned about whether or not they were registering illegals put it best: “WE ALL HAVE RIGHTS.” How noble. Was there an assumption that many at the rally would be likely to vote with a specific party, hence the registration drive? Or was it just that these registers were filled with the spirit of good will in registering people to vote, and happened to be at this rally? Interestingly unremarkable to Goldy.

    I know that the folks here thrive on reactionary hatred, and Goldy does a great job of drumming it up, but there’s always a bit more to the story that Goldy creatively omits.

    And their shock, shock that people would actually try to register people with brown skin to vote is amazing.

    Don’t forget, it was over at the minnows site where the great idea of challenging every voter with a foreign sounding name was floated and seriously discussed.

    The only good thing about all of this is that is shows how desperate the wingnuts around this state have become. I assume that the next big story over at U(sp) will be that Maria Cantwell once had a parking ticket. Can we let a potential murder like that represent us in the Senate?

    But you see, if you register to vote, it’s clearly because you hate America. And if you become a citizen it’s because you hate America even more. And waving American flags is so clearly America hating that it really doesn’t need to be mentioned how America hating it is.

    Roger and Gang my commint to the editor of the seattle times.

    ‘lturnbull@seattletimes.com’
    The 2000 census counted 441,509 Latinos of all races living in Washington, the largest of any minority group in the state. Fewer than half of those live in the Puget Sound region, where many work in the construction and landscape industries, in restaurant kitchens or in the hospitality industry.
    A recent study by the Pew Hispanic Center estimated that between 200,000 and 250,000 Washington residents are in this country illegally.

    So where did they all come from and why are they flying Mexico flag when they want to be U.S. Citizens? Why are they flying a flag of a Cuban revolutionist who was killed in Central American? Why are they carrying a sign claiming to be a Latino Liberation Movement when all they want to be is a legal citizen of this country? Who is the Freedom socialist party and what do they want of our country? Now had all these folks entered this country like we enter Canada today this country would not be facing these issues. It appears that you (Seattle Times)support the over run of this country borders like the Albanians did Kosovo. Then you also support the same results the Serbs received when they tried to prevent the lost of Kosovo. I heard very little English spoken by these folks and it appears they want us to speak Spanish only. What is next? They get to vote in this state without becoming a citizen, and Dean Logan will provide ballots in their native language. Please who are these folks supporters beside Ron Sims and the city loudest Socialist Democrats. Could you explain why the Democrat and Republican Parties need this add attraction to legislate new laws. This country is not France when you allow the mobs to rule the nation. Tell me does the Seattle Times support the type of government that runs a nation like France, or one that represents it fellow citizens like a republic.

    Of course yesterday, she “apologized” in the Statesman-Examiner for her slavery column by suggesting that the Holocaust might not have been so bad because it created Israel.

    So Africans who arrive in the 1620s are immigrants because they’re black, but she’s a “native American” because she’s white.

    Millions of people dead are okay so long as it serves some Fundamentalist/Zionist fantasy in the “holy lands”. What kind of sick maniac do you have to be to be a Republican?

    -No, keep [Just another Chicken Hawk] around. His racism and stupidity remind us of why Republicans should never be allowed in charge of anything.-

    It also reminds us just how sick and morally repugnant “born again Christians” can be.

    Frankly, I’m surprised Sharkansky didn’t go out and pull one of his “harrass random people with my camera” trick. That’s what got Shark notoriety when he was on his Rabbi Kahane kick in SF, right?

    It’s a Numbers game…

    “There are an estimated 250,000 illegal immigrants in Washington, many working as agricultural laborers in the eastern part of the state; during a roll call of Washington cities, huge cheers went up at the mention of Yakima, Walla Walla, and Spokane.”

    Who’s bluffing, you or Eli Sanders?

    How many conservatives here were offended by the march last month? All those immigrants took over 4th avenue in the middle of the day, flying their foreign flags(I think I saw *one* US flag), dancing foreign dances. They even had the gall to raise their flag at the courthouse. Afterwards, they got drunk on foreign beer. What happened to American pride?

    Of course, it was St. Patrick’s Day and the paricipants were by and large white so I guess it was a-okay in their eyes.

    Willie @32,

    Could you be any lazier? I provided a link to my source, which lists its source as the US Citizenship and Immigration Service 2000 report. So next time you disparage my numbers, try clicking through the links first.

    Unlike some bloggers, I don’t just pull statistics out of my ass.

    I think I finally understand [Just another Chicken Hawk]’s reasoning. He is at a lost of why people would risk their lives to get into this country when Bush is president.

    Well, [JCH], despite how much you hate this country, it is just that wonderful that people will risk their lives to work crap jobs even with the leaker-in-chief in charge.

    If there were ton of Mexican flags, why does Jim Miller over at u(SP) complain about there being none?

    And the minnow was the one that decided to lead a post of his with the wild specualtion of a reader of his that since people were signing up brown people, they must be breaking the law. If Goldy started posting things based on the ravings of [Just another Chicken Hawk] you would have a comparision.

    However, unlike the minnow, Goldy usually likes to have facts to support his charges.

    On the other hand, unlike U(sp), there is no hate here. You don’t see anyone getting banned, and given the nature of the wingnuts that hjang out here (see their rantings in this thread), that seems very tolerant, I think you will agree. On the other hand, post a few facts that show how foolish most of the u(SP) posters are, or the fact that the minnow doesn’t have any facts, and you are quickly banned.

    Since you come from U(sp), undoubtably, you are use to hate and propaganda, and it will take you a while to get used to truth and facts. Actually read what is posted and I think you might find that the real world is quite interesting and not as full of paranoid fears as that of U(sp).

    Hello ASSHEads: I was working hard these past few days and I was playing hard here on the east coast. Damn good to be working among some people who respect laws.

    You ASSHeads need to read a smart black man Thomas Sowell. Remember I mentioned him as an articulate, intelligent, economics educator? Well he’s done it again. I missed this entry flying around the country and such! You ASSHeads need remedial immigration edumications!!!

    People registering are “Obviously illegal”, like persons at certain addresses are “obviously using a mailing address”, and felons are obviously voting for Democrats.

    If these idiots actually went to the bother of researching an issue and standing behind the results, there might be a way to solve any problem. But, when they just pull it out of some orifice.

    I was at Star Fleet Academy 2245-2249. It’s the web, you can say anything you want.

    I don’t even think you are as big of a racist as you pretend to be, so why the hell should I believe you were in the Navy.

    And, if you are as much of a racist idiot as you seem to be, I have enough faith in the Navy, and hell, the Military, Coast Guard, Foreign Service and Civil Service that any of them would have gotten rid of you before you could do any damage, or get your punk ass beaten.

    But, even if you were in the Navy, it gives you no cred. There has to be the worse of anything. The worse Doctor, Lawyer, Pilot, and even Ensign in the Navy.

    But we all know that when the ships were in port, everyone thought you gave the best blow jobs.
