Over 300 protestors rallied against the proposal as they marched yesterday, holding signs proclaiming, “We’re all humans,” and “America was formed by immigrants.”
But this is the real news: About two dozen patriot counter protestors defended O’Hare (in 100+ degree heat, no less) with signs reading, “O’Hare for Prez,” and “Como se dice ‘illegal’ en espanol?” [How do you say `illegal` in Spanish?]
The people of Farmers Branch aren’t na?ve about immigration. Even the Dallas Morning News is catching on (see here).
O`Hare`s proposal is meant to protect the property values, school reputations, crime rate, and health care from taking a turn for the worse. One very acute counter-protestor (Debbie Rawlins, 48) commented, "They`re taking our jobs, our homes. There`s unemployment partly because of the Hispanics. The lady that took my job is Hispanic and she`s bilingual."
But, if health care, jobs, safety and education aren’t important enough, how about this. Hector Flores – immediate past national president of the League of United Latin American Citizens and leader of the anti-O’Hare protest – threatened even more: “The proposal is directed at a group that is basically Hispanic. Maybe 1 million of us will move to Farmers Branch and change government.”
We have been warned.
Congratulate Councilman O`Hare.
