What better way to attempt to sway people to your plight than to ruin an event people wanted to watch with their kids?
(NorthJersey.com) Several people were removed Thursday after they attempted to block the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as part of a protest to press lawmakers to pass legislation that would allow undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children to stay in the country without fear of deportation.
Protesters demonstrated near West 70th Street and Central Park West on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Several demonstrators attempted to block the parade but were removed by New York police. None was charged.
The demonstration was organized by the Seed Project, a nonviolent organization that aims to be a voice for undocumented immigrant youth and bring them permanent protection from removal.
Great idea: let’s annoy people. A better one would be to ask nicely, rather than demanding.
Among those who demonstrated was 26-year old Osvaldo Rodriguez from Red Bank, a DACA recipient. Rodriguez was born in Mexico and moved to New Jersey when he was 11 years old. He graduated from high school in New Jersey, went to college for a few semesters and now owns a photography business. Rodriguez said he loves baseball, has adapted to the American culture and its values and feels American.
“We just want to give back to this country what this country has given us,” Rodriguez said before the demonstration.
Rodriguez said he wanted to participate in Thursday’s action to draw attention to the situation and the looming deadline that DACA recipients are facing.
That deadline is on them. They shouldn’t be here. And they can blame Obama for instituting an un-Constitutional program which gave these illegals false hope.
“This is the only way that we are going to shift the mindset of people, because we are doing nonviolence,” he said. “When people are sharing a meal in their homes, there are families that are being separated, and there is no reason why, whether you are poor or rich, you should be separated.”
Families are separated all the time when a member is busted for a crime and has to do time. Regardless, the more the illegals like the Dreamers pull stunts the more people are hardened against giving them a chance. If your friend, child, spouse, etc, are browbeating you to do something, are you more or less likely to listen and do that thing? That’s right, less.
Meanwhile, in Canada, “immigrants” are, shockingly, not all that likely to assimilate by learning French in the province of Quebec.
