The groups’ message was “no detentions, no deportations, no wall.” The rally was held at the corner of Vista Village Drive and Santa Fe Avenue, and included speeches from various group representatives.

Do you believe that the USA has the right to police its immigrants? Yes or no. Do you believe ANY country has the right to police its immigrants? Yes or no. Do you believe it is right to take away jobs from AMERICANS? Yes or no. Do you believe it is right to ship jobs overseas so that AMERICANS do NOT have a job . . . including YOU? Yes or no. Do you believe you are a good American by hiring illegals to do your yard work, clean your home, baby sit your children, pick your avocadoes, work in our nurseries, etc.? Yes or no. Do you truly believe that paying an illegal $8-10/hour is the TRUE and ONLY cost to you and I? Yes or no. Do you believe a foreigner illegally staying/living in the USA has the right to services just like an American citizen/national? Yes or no. Do you believe if YOU stayed in a foreign country illegally that YOU would have the same rights and privileges of that country’s citizens? Yes or no. WHEN exactly will you stand up for OUR nation, the USA? When? WHEN will you put OUR nation first? When? When will you stop being ignorant and realize that President Trump’s immigration orders ARE AN EXTENSION OF THOSE OF PRESIDENT OBAMA? When will you realize that the duty and responsibility, among many, of our president is to PROTECT the people of the USA? When? I think this is a good beginning. C’mon, let’s hear it! Reply Ray (the real one) February 24, 2017 at 2:56 pm Right on Lee Reply grunt February 24, 2017 at 7:15 pm Where in any document does it give the right, or even privilege, for foreign born persons to come to the US with out authorization? Lee is 100% correct. Our welfare/unemployment is mostly with the under educated, the illegals now take jobs that our teenagers used to have (they would then learn responsibility and develop good work habits). Now, we have demands for higher and higher minimum wage. Throw the illegals out, refuse welfare for every able body person until and unless all entry level jobs are filled. You will soon find that there are NO jobs American’s will not do. Allow only immigration for those that will benefit the US Reply Steve February 25, 2017 at 7:06 am E pluribus unum, we are all a mixture of immigrants but we all must follow the laws. If you are here illegally you should be deported. Reply DENNIS February 25, 2017 at 8:05 am Another question is: If welfare is seriously reformed, will that 24 year old surfer dude in Bonsall collecting welfare pick strawberries at minimum wage or hire on as a Soros demonstrator for less and carry a placard? Reply Liz February 25, 2017 at 8:17 am That about sums it up. Thank you Lee, for writing what most of us are thinking. Liz Reply Knp February 25, 2017 at 8:34 am What part of the word illegal do they not understand. There are legal ways to enter this country and unless you have a criminal record most anyone can do it. I fail to understand the line of thinking that just because you are here illegally that entitles you to stay and that makes things ok. Take a look at the illegal’s last income tax filing and see how many have paid taxes on their earnings as I have. Reply Art February 25, 2017 at 8:47 am Well said Lee. Im looking forward to seeing who answers those questions Reply Kathy February 25, 2017 at 9:01 am Well said. Reply Cynthia Greer February 25, 2017 at 10:52 am The United States of America is a country which has LAWS. Legislation. Passed by our House of Representatives and Senators. We as citizens are supposed to abide by those laws. Consequences are in place for those who break our laws. Illegal immigration is illegal. There is a legal process in place for immigration into our country. If you do not like our established laws then you have a process to pursue to bring change and new legislation.

First and foremost the broken immigration laws up in Washington DC. The very congressmen who are so intransigent, are exactly the same ones who receive huge campaign donations from the ones who encourage all these illegals, pay them very little money, and then try to hide behind some sort of paper castle known as contracts with contractors, with sub-contractors and sub-sub-contractors. If these eleven million non-citizens were to become voting U.S. citizens, the composition of our state governments and our federal government would be much different, and a lot of Trump supporters know it, but refuse to admit they know it. Reply Lee February 26, 2017 at 10:25 am My dear fellow Fallbrookers (Grunt, Ray, Liz, et al.), thank you very much for your kind words. I greatly appreciate it! More to come: I’m not done yet with these traitorous buffoons. Reply George V. February 27, 2017 at 10:25 am Thanks Lee,I am hispanic American was born in Texas as we’re my parents and their parents.my family and I used to shop in Mexico and every time,they would search our papers,and vehicle and question us,that was every time at entry, also leaving. Their immigration laws are tougher and better than ours.I am ashamed of and embarrassed for our great country the united States of America thanks keep up the good work,from, George Reply Preston March 1, 2017 at 6:44 am “We the People” are responsible for the current state of affairs in America. We have failed to demand that our elected officials enforce our National and Local laws and do their job by putting the security and safety of America first. Many Americans have not voted responsibility (or not at all) and the result is our country is falling apart. We have allowed Government to run amuck and the failure of the Oroville Dam Spillway is just a glimpse of what Americans will be facing in the future due to their own apathy. Sorry but, we are all responsible for this mess because we have allowed it to happen. Perhaps what Lee is ultimately saying is a nation that does not enforce its national laws will eventually fail. By the way, how much of the recent rainfall in Southern California do you believe we collected for the future? If you are in the Rainbow Water District, what percent of the water delivered do you believe is imported? How many even care? Reply Brookie March 2, 2017 at 4:41 pm Hit the nail on the head Lee! Can’t wrap my head around their thinking. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
