Power to "We the People!"

Cross posted from The Minuteman Blog:

Fox News reports on the California Minuteman Civil Defense Corps efforts yesterday to repair a fence in the San Diego area that our government has left in disrepair for YEARS, as well as extend current fencing on government land. The CA MCDC had around 200 folks show up to help with fence repair and extension in areas where illegals and drug traffickers have torn down the American people's fencing.

From the Fox News website:
BOULEVARD, Calif. — As immigrants and their supporters prepared for a massive boycott on Monday, opponents of illegal immigration went to work building a border fence meant to symbolize their support of a secure border.

About 200 volunteers organized by the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps of California began building a 6-foot barbed wire fence Saturday along a quarter-mile stretch of rugged terrain in Boulevard, about 50 miles east of San Diego.

Tim Donnelly, the group's leader, said volunteers ate apple pie and hot dogs as they worked on the fence, which was connected to an existing 12-foot-high fence previously built by the federal government.

The volunteers wanted to send a message to Congress that the government should block entry to the United States and not grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, Donnelly said.

Thousands of immigrants and their supporters are expected to boycott work and schools Monday to raise awareness of their contributions to society.

"This was largely sent as a message to Congress so they'll see on May 1, there are jobs that even illegal immigrants don't want to do, but Americans are more than willing to do them," Donnelly said, referring to the fence-building.

A Coalition Helper informed me about this:
Channel 5 News in Chicago will be covering the rallies in downtown Chicago tomorrow throughout the day, I'm sure every other TV station will be doing the same. But Channel 5 will have a comment section on their website to leave any comments regarding the rallies and the national debate on illegal aliens in general. obviously the comment section will not be up until tomorrow.

Let's give them our comments! http://www.nbc5.com/index.html

Ch. 5 will be displaying the comments during their newscast. A great opportunity to let the rest of America know that there really is anotherside.For those in Chicago that site also has a planned map of the event.

From InMuscatine:
-Defining Deviancy Down---

Why is May 1 not much of an event in America? Well, for that you can thank your local communist, socialist, anarchist, and other sundry Liberal moonbat types for co-opting it. In reality the Liberals celebrate this day for taking by force what they couldn't win at the ballot box, or through the courts.

From DeMediacratic Nation:
-Boycott may lack bite organizers intended---
Organizers of the boycott say they didn't have the economic resources to get the word out to everyone they want to take part in the protest.
No economic resources? Gee, maybe we should all donate to the cause. Although they shouldn't need the resources with all the press this has gotten. Perhaps what they are pushing for isn't all that popular.

From the Houston Chronicle:
Forget about getting a super burrito, flauta or fajita at any of Houston's Taquerias Arandas restaurants on Monday.
And if you've been hankering for a new pair of work boots from the Botas Cebu store on Harwin, you'll have to wait.It'll be closed, too.

In Houston and around the country, immigrants and their supporters on Monday plan to stage a national work stoppage and spending boycott aimed at showing off their economic muscle. Their aim is to get Congress to legalize more than 11 million undocumented immigrants and back off proposals to tighten immigration laws.

But Monday's "Day Without an Immigrant" is unlikely to bring the economy to a grinding halt as it did in the 2004 satirical film A Day Without A Mexican, even some immigrant advocates concede.

"There won't be chaos," predicted Alain Cisneros, a community organizer for ACORN, a group that works with low-income families, including immigrants. "We will see the impact on the economy, maybe not that strong, but we will see the impact of companies closing and workers not working."

Organizers of the boycott say they didn't have the economic resources to get the word out to everyone they want to take part in the protest. And some immigrants are afraid to participate, still rattled over the raids earlier this month that netted 1,187 illegal immigrants in Texas and 25 other states. But organizers say that if even scattered pockets of immigrants hold back their labor and cash, if only for a day, they will boost awareness of their demands.

From Free Constitution:
-Tomorrow is Freedom---

It also happens to be May Day, a day long associated with communism, Marxism, socialism, anarchism, basically anti-American.

Tomorrow's events, which will be heavily covered by our very own "highly objective" mainstream media, are a strategic move not for the masses involved, but for the organizers of the pro-invasion. An alliance of communists and reconquistas, whose sole objective is to undermine and shake the very foundation of the United States of America.

They intend to deliver a blow to the nation using the very means vital to our survival, and a means they so despise: Free enterprise.

But that is where they will fail. Free enterprise has advantages over state-run business, such advantages are called flexibility, resilience, and the freedom to hire and also fire people who don't show up!

Nevertheless, according to tradition, President Bush has declared tomorrow a day of Law and Loyalty.

Not good enough.

Perhaps the greatest power of voice the American has is through his checkbook.

Let Freedom Ring. And let it Ring Loudly.

From Right Truth:
-May Day By Criminal Invaders, (backed by communist?)---

May 1st has been claimed by the criminal invaders in America as 'nothing gringo day'. Is it an accident that May 1 was selected and that May 1 has been claimed by socialists, communists, and anarchists? Fox News Channel wonders and so do many bloggers. Exactly what groups are backing these marchers?

International Workers' Day (a name used interchangably with May Day) is the commemoration of the Haymarket Riot of 1886 in Chicago, Illinois, and a celebration of the social and economic achievements of the international labor movement. The 1 May date is used because in 1884 the Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions, inspired by labor's 1872 success in Canada, demanded an eight-hour workday in the United States to come in effect as of May 1, 1886. This resulted in a general strike and the riot in Chicago of 1886, but eventually also in the official sanction of the eight-hour workday. The May Day Riots of 1894 and May Day Riots of 1919 occurred subsequently.

Due to these left-wing overtones, May Day has long been a focal point for demonstrations by various socialist, communist, and anarchist groups. In some circles, bonfires are lit in commemoration of the Haymarket Riot usually right as the first day of May begins. [citation needed] In the 20th century, May Day received the official endorsement of the Soviet Union; celebrations in communist countries during the Cold War era often consisted of large military parades and shows of common people in support of the government. Wikipedia

Most Americans are not worried about May 1 because we see it as a great chance for many things:

1. Jobs vacated by these criminal invaders can be filled by Americans.

2. The streets will be clear of many criminal invaders who do not have licenses or insurance.

3. Our stores and businesses will be less crowded.

4. Hopefully our hospitals and doctor offices will be less crowded and able to serve legal citizens who have insurance.

5. We don't care if lettuce costs a few cents more, or we have to bus our own tables, or mow or own yards. Most of us do that anyway. Most Americans do all their own yard work, house work, plus their full-time jobs, so this won't be a change for us. I believe the market will work out any lack of criminal invader labor force we no longer have.

These people are not immigrants, they were not invited here, they are not here legally and this is what bothers Americans. Many people wait years, fill out stacks of paperwork, pay all the required fees, take all the medical exams that are required for legal immigration. These criminal invaders have done none of this.

So fine, stay home, or march in our streets. Hopefully ICE will be there to arrest and deport you. Yee-haw!
