Conservatives rally for strict immigration law
The newly formed South Carolina Black Conservative Movement rallied people at the Statehouse on Saturday to support tougher immigration laws.
State. Rep. Tim Scott, who is running for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District seat, was the featured speaker. He would be the first black Republican congressman since Oklahoma's J.C. Watts retired in 2003.
"One thing the federal government should be doing is stopping illegal immigration," Scott said to the crowd of roughly 150 people, almost all white.
Scott said that if the U.S. wants to stop illegal immigration, it should adopt policies like Mexico's that require all immigrants to register and carry identifying papers.
Event organizer and group founder Roweena Booker said she thinks many blacks are afraid breaking their historical attachment to the Democratic Party.
"We are trying to get the message out there that we do have the same values as conservatives," she said.

I read the comments from "Dreamers" and other illegal alien groups. It really cracks me up because they are channeling all of their efforts and anger against Repubs, conservatives and white America...when it is ALL Americans who are sick and tired of them, including Blacks and legal Hispanics! I guess this is too much for them to comprehend.

Don't forget that the majority of the Native population is against them too.

The standard Black "leaders" are either missing in action on illegal action or promoting policies that hurt Blacks,legal immigrants, and Americans in general.
These Blacks are against illegal immigration too!
Black man has had enough
Immigrants and minorities against illegal immigration and civil rights comparisons.

Illegal aliens taking jobs "Americans won't do" disproportionately impact legal immigrants, the working poor, and minorities.
