Having been raised in this community, I can tell you that illegal immigration is NOT a major issue in this tiny timber town in Yamhill county. I find this story quite amusing. it has been getting national attention and even talked about at the daily kos *lmao* If you lived here you would understand where I m coming from, but the media spins it to make us look like we are all a bunch of lunatics.
Now the city of McMinnville (Yamhill county seat) does have immigration issues, the population has been sky rocking and more major businesses have been popping up and I find they are hiring more and more immigrants who can't speak English. If you apply for a county job it is required that you be bi-lingual. It pisses me off. All I want to do is order a damn hamburger and have them get the order right when you tell them what you want they don't freaking understand English!!!!

The phone calls started pouring in at Irving City Hall on Thursday morning.
They were prompted by activists who implored a crowd of more than 1,000 people at a rally Wednesday night to call for an end to a program that turns over arrested illegal immigrants to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
But most callers weren't asking for an end to the program – they were voicing their support.
"It was ringing over and over, and by far, the biggest percent was in favor," City Secretary Janice Carroll said Thursday afternoon.

DANBURY, Connecticut (Reuters) - Ten Hispanic immigrants filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against a Connecticut city, its mayor and police chief, and federal agents who led a crackdown on illegal immigration last year.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in New Haven, Connecticut, claims the arrests violated the civil rights of nine workers and a 10th man who was stopped at a traffic light, including their right to due legal process, free speech and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, according to court documents.

(CBS) NEW YORK They were celebrating outside the governor's office Friday as Eliot Spitzer handed a landmark victory to a half-million illegal immigrants.
The state will no longer require proof of citizenship for driver's licenses.
And yet the increased number of dead people due to this decision will not make news.

Arguing that the raids violate constitutional protections against unreasonable searches, the suit seeks unspecified damages and a halt on the home raids until Immigration and Customs Enforcement develops legal guidelines for them.
I know how to make the raids stop, turn illegals in yourself.

The Arlington County Board yesterday strongly rebuked elected officials elsewhere in Northern Virginia who are clamping down on illegal immigrants, saying such efforts are "politically inspired," "irresponsible" and "punitive."
The five board members, all Democrats, unanimously backed a resolution calling on elected officials elsewhere to "promote the integration of immigrants" instead of enacting rules they said would be divisive.

Clinton has no answers for undocumented immigrants
DES MOINES, Iowa (CNN) — At a press briefing after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's health care rollout Monday, senior policy advisers said the New York senator's plan does not currently include any details on whether illegal immigrants will be covered.
Senior policy adviser Laurie Rubiner–while acknowledging that undocumented immigrants are a "huge issue" in this country–said, "That's one we're going to have to think through a little bit."
"We have not dealt with every single detail with this plan," Rubiner continued.
When asked if it would be safe to assume that the Democratic frontrunner, at this point, has no position on coverage for illegal immigrants advisers answered "yes" and said the plan does not "at this point" deal with that issue.http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070918/ap_on_re_us/immigration_riverside_1

They feed on attention
Groups Clash Over Immigration at Church
Sep 17, 8:14 AM (ET)
SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Dozens of activists on both sides of the illegal immigration debate faced off outside a church where an illegal immigrant is being sheltered with her U.S.-born infant son.
One immigrant-rights advocate was injured with a chemical spray during Sunday's confrontation at the United Church of Christ, and police were investigating allegations that an opposing protester was responsible, police Capt. John McGinty said.
Members of the anti-illegal immigration group Save Our State, which organized the rally that drew about 120 protesters and counter-protesters, said they had hoped to make a citizen's arrest of the woman, who has identified herself only as Liliana.
The woman has been living in the church's former parsonage as part of the New Sanctuary Movement, which arranges church accommodations for illegal immigrants in the U.S.
Group members shouted for Liliana, who lived in Oxnard before taking shelter at the church, to give herself up.
"I'm here because I'm for the movement for the illegals to go home," protester Dee Barrow said.Daniel Smallwood, one of the counter-protesters, accused the anti-illegal immigration activists of racism and said members of his group joined the rally because they didn't want their ideological opponents "to get all the attention."
Liberals = camera whores
