East Coast Protest at the National
Governors Association annual meeting
Notice the propaganda. Opposition to illegal immigration = racism. Opposition to illegal immigration is “anti-immigrant”. Nobody’s buying it. But that’s what you say when you’ve got nothing else.
Included in the long list of commie/pinko/Islamic organizations that endorsed and issued their own “calls to action” is the New Black Panther Party.
Nice bunch of allies this President has, huh? Who could have ever seen this coming?

Calls to protest Arizona’s tough illegal-immigration law fell flat in Boston yesterday as barely 400 people rallied in opposition to Gov. Jan Brewer and her policy to use ID checks to arrest illegals.
Organizers had predicted the gathering would draw thousands, but less than 400 people – some of them counter-protesters – showed up for the Copley Square rally.
After the two-hour gathering, protesters marched in a downpour through Back Bay to the Sheraton Hotel, where Brewer, a Republican, attended the National Governors Association meeting.
Todd Domke, a Republican media strategist, said he wasn’t surprised at the low turnout, given public opinion polls in the state.
“Polls show people are against immigration, against giving benefits to illegal immigrants,” he said. “The passion is clearly more on the side of those who favor the Arizona law.”
Gov. Deval Patrick supports the federal lawsuit challenging the Arizona law, and the Boston City Council passed a resolution to cut ties with all Arizona businesses.
A fiery Steve Kirschbaum, a member of United Steeworkers Local 8751, called the law “scumbag, racist and fascist.”

A coalition of immigrant groups bused in advocates from around the East Coast for a rally Saturday to protest Arizona’s controversial immigration law, recently signed by Brewer.
Protesters in Copley Square said Brewer was a bigot and called for the end of what they said was “racist deportation.” They later marched to a hotel where Brewer was attending the annual governors meeting.
