Protestors target McIntyre over immigration reform vote

READ MORE:
 

LELAND, NC (WWAY) -- The Leland office of Rep. Mike McIntyre got a visit from protestors today, who are upset with the Democrat's vote on immigration reform.

The Latin American Coalition stopped by McIntyre's office to protest his vote to defund the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals memorandum. The DACA defers deportations for young, undocumented immigrants.

"Finally two years where we don't have to live in fear of getting pulled over, getting deported, losing their families and what not, he's voting to defund this program that would cause all these youth a lot of trouble in the future," Daniela Blanco said.

The Congressman was not in the office this morning, and the protestors were asked to leave shortly after they arrived.

"Folks from the Latin American Coalition visited our Leland office today to share their concerns about immigration reform," McIntyre's spokesman Dean Mitchell said. "Congress is currently considering several measures regarding this issue, and there will continue to be much discussion and debate in Congress as this matter is considered."

Mike McIntyre and Latin American Coalition

This is an ethnic driven movement to violate U.S. immigration laws. This group continues to believe that they have a right to avoid legal entry. Furthermore, that U.S. citizens should change the laws to accomodate their illegal presence. Good for Rep. McIntyre...one of a a very few Dems who has some common sense per this issue. North Carolina has an illegal alien population, mostly from Mexico, topping 500,000 per the Mexican Consular General Flores-Vizcarra. He should know. The Mex. Consulate issues their form of ID to illegals who drive, take American jobs, fill up seats in our taxpayer funded classrooms AND tap the benefit system for the cost of their anchor babies. WIC, delivery costs, medical. Take a look in the NC State Prison system. Approx. 1800 illegal aliens incarcerated on OUR tax $$. I went to the border 2 weeks ago. Secure? What a joke. NO AMNESTY~

Leland cops need to round

Leland cops need to round these lawbreakers up and turn them over to ICE.

What gets me is that if you

What gets me is that if you try to enter Mexico's southern border and
you are caught by the authorities, you get a night stick over the head
and one I your gut along with a boot in your behind sending you back
where you came from. Mexico has exported its poverty across our border for years and now I'm supposed to help feed, cover their free
healthcare and educate them?! No!! Go to Mexico and ask for this and
you won't get it. Its time to say no, come here by the legal process
or don't come at all. We have to stop this non-sense before we completely collapse.

The "Latin American" Coalition stopped by

It seems like the vast majority of the proponents for immigration "reform" are Latino. Find a talking head on TV advocating "reform" and 99.4% of the time it's a Latino. The group that "stopped by" McIntyre's office was Latino.

After a while one cannot help but feel that all of this protesting has nothing to do with social justice. It's simply Latinos exhibiting a racial preference for having more Latinos here, regardless of how many people from other places they're attempting to cut ahead of in the waiting line. Immigrants come into our country legally. They wait their turn. That's what the American concept of fairness is all about.

Political correctness aside, what Latinos seem to be doing these days really falls more into the category of racist behavior.

That feels wrong.

I'm white and I support it.

I'm white and I support it.

Send them home

If you are not a legal citizen then you need to be sent home. I am sorry that you feel entitled to be in the United States legally because your parents did something illegal. The apples don't fall from the tree. Take the necessary steps to obtain legal citizenship AND learn the English language or go back to your native country. This country is in a world of hurt because of the open door policy of letting everyone and anyone in. If your country is so bad and you want to relocate, then take the proper steps to come in legally, take english classes and live the American dream. My grandparents did it you can too. All of these rallies where illegal immigrants get together to protest is a perfect opportunity to round them up and deport them. What gives you the right to protest when you don't legally belong here, you don't pay taxes, you don't speak english and you refuse to learn it. Go Home! Call me bitter, yes I am sick and tired of paying higher everything because of individuals who do not pay and will not pay. You come here illegally, have a baby and that baby is granted citizenship, I say hell no. And the politicians are so afraid to vote for deportation because these will lose the vote of that particular minority. Stand up politicians, that is what we pay you to do and why we voted you in office. I say kudos to Mac for doing the right thing!

Well said!!

Well said!!

Last election Mike McIntyre

Last election Mike McIntyre said ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION was wrong and he was working to do something about it, funny part is he has been one of the top dogs for a lot of years and hasn't done anything about it, I am very surprised he has done anything to upset the ILLEGALS now, but on behalf of the people that believe in "legal immigration", I am ready for you to live up to at least one of your campaign promises, stand up, be a man of your word, and fight to punish those that employ or harbor ILLEGALS, they will go home on their own if no one will aid and abet them, including our duly elected representatives!

How do these criminals get

How do these criminals get away with invading the office of a state official and nobody arrests them? Every one of them who is here illegally should be deported. Our nation is going to Hell on a rocket sled.
