  1. #1 Illegal Aliens "Come Out" In Chicago. 
    Students to ‘Come Out’ as Undocumented
    Produced by Chip Mitchell on Wednesday, March 10, 2010

    Today a group of undocumented Chicago students is trying to break a stalemate in the nation’s immigration debate. We report from our West Side bureau. Hear an extended version of this story on WBEZ’s news magazine 848.

    The students are frustrated that President Barack Obama isn’t pushing harder for an immigration overhaul. They’re leading a march in downtown Chicago this afternoon. And this isn’t their grandparents’ immigrant protest. The undocumented students are adopting a tactic from the gay-rights movement.

    When the march reaches Federal Plaza, eight students are planning to “come out.” They’ll approach the microphone with their faces in full view. They’ll introduce themselves, in most cases using their first name only. Then they’ll tell their story -- how their parents brought them to the United States as a child, how they grew up here but eventually found doors to higher education and careers shut because of their undocumented status.
    So your parents break the law and now you want us to change the law?

    By George, I think she's got it. If ICE doesn't start attending these events, I'd like to know why.

    Great opportunity to use some of that surplus barbed-wire. Once they round themselves up, thus saving tax payers money and effort, deport the vermin immediately.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
