Only in your sick and twisted cowardly little minds. Even those officers and agents who should be 'rounding your azs up' as you protest for rights that do not belong to you....even they, soon, will unleash the cuffs and do their jobs. You don't know your real position.

If you think racism is the answer then just keep on supporting Ellison and Gutierrez. If you think stupidity is the answer, do the same.

You are mistaken. If you're in this country illegally, that makes you a criminal. Criminals do not have a right to march and rally. It would be rather difficult to do so while incarcerated. However you can be deported and then you can exercise whatever rights are granted to you in your home country. If marching and rallying are not included in those rights, you might just have the power to change that.

There is No Color or Faith Boundaries. A Senior is a Senior and should get Quality Healthcare and not have to be afraid to go to a Hospital in fear that they will not be able to pay a huge bill that they cannot afford because Medicare may choose not to cover it. They have paid taxes and continue to pay taxes along with paying for Medicare which is taken out of their Social Security Checks and also pay for a supplement if they can, which means all should be covered. When are Politicians going to stop complaining about Seniors on Medicare and start looking at this problem and help All Seniors?
