I find it more than ironic or coincidence that the STAR doesn't promote ANTI-illegal immigration demonstrations in Indianapolis with the same fervor they do the pro-illegal, pro-amnesty open borders groups.

Why is that?

Just follow the money.

The STAR's advertisers need cheap labor so the STAR won't do anything that would bring any adverse attention to criminal ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS in Indianapolis!

The STAR lost any claim to journalistic integrity a long, long, very long time ago!

It's funny how illegal aliens have been PC'd into "undocumented immigrants". The fact is that they are not of this country (alien) and they are here illegally. They and their families (even the children born here) should be deported and their employers held accountable for once. I have absolutely no problem with those that have entered the country legally following our laws and are trying to become citizens.

Can't wait to see this march. We need to have them march out of the country. It's always good to see how many people support this movement. Then I can get upset again about where my tax dollar is going.

We do not need 'reform', we need the government to enforce the frick'n law. It would be an absolute disgrace to give amnesty (again) to people who knowingly broke our laws (including employers).

Any member of congress who has been in office since the last time this issue was addressed (Ronald regan's presidency) should be fired on the spot for not forcing our government to fund and enforce our existing immigration laws.

There are 300 million people in this country and of that # and estimated 20-30 million have circumvented are laws and put themselves ahead of law abiding immigrants who were willing to make the necessary sacrifices to become a CITIZEN of our country. Granting amnesty to those who choose to break our laws is the ultimate slap in the face to law abiding immigrants.

Under GW's watch we have exported millions of living wage jobs over seas and imported third world unskilled labor by the millions and millions. The madness has got to stop!

It would be nice if immigration officers showed up at the march & started checking their legal status, if you are legal OK but if not you will be immediately loaded on a bus & shipped out. Where do we draw the line on how nice this country can be because right now we are being taken full advantage of.

Don't blame the immigrants but the dishonest, greedy businesses that are making a profit off of them!Hilarious what we put up with and then credit capitalism and the free enterprise when all it is is GREED. Shame. Isn't this similar to the 1800's when we brought over groups of people from another country to work in our cotton fields unwilling? We thought it was ok for them to be slaves. Hell we even quoted the Bible about how there were slaves in the Bible so why not? Another proud part of American history that we don't talk about. And no I'm white!

The weirdest thing is that 90% of our inner city schools are made up of first year Spanish speaking kids. So we put a standardized, one size fits all ISTEP in front of them and make them take it with NO translation help. So of course, the student scores poorly. Duhhhh. They can't speak the language nor are they familiar with our expressions and sayings that are on the ISTEP. So the school, administrators, teachers and for some unknown reason their weak unions are labeled "failing." How can they pass the stupid test anyway? Then talk radio and the corporate media pile on without reporting the full story. We get blogs written by Mr. Biddle that are disguised as "for kids" but are actually supporting a hidden corporate agenda to totally discredit free public education and carve it up and give it to corporate America.

Why is the INS ignoring this nationwide march? This is the absolute perfect time to check for green cards. My guess is that more than 3/4 of these "demonstrators" are indeed illegal. There should be a huge fleet of busses waiting to remove them from the U.S. Instead, this administration is following the money and, along with the illegals, is flipping off the constitution. It's truly a slap in the face of those who came here legally and assimilated with our culture (i.e. speak English!).

This is pretty sweet of them to gather-up together.All we would have to do is have the buses ready and load them up.I would rather help pay the bus fare than keep paying for their free services. My estimates are that it cost us(taxpayers)about $22,000 a year for each one of these illegal aliens.I'm sure a bus ticket don't cost that much.We need to have these people register or sign-up for this demonstration so we can keep tabs on them;ALSO PICTURES of each one.A golden opportunity to document them.

Amen! I do not feel sorry for those who are here illegally.. you know the ones who drive 20 miles per hour down the road because they are fearful of being CAUGHT because they are here ILLEGALLY. Ship them back to their country, and if they want to live here they need to do it legally.. I'm SICK of it. Tired of listening to their babble.. tired of hearing about all the crime committed by mexicans.. they need to go back and do it the correct way.

Marching again? Are we not brave or are we just protecting ourselves from this group of hostiles against us and/or the laws of our sovereign nation. See some of the crap live on Youtube.com and you will puke after feeling so infuriated, or you will be P.O.'d enough to do something about it: like get more facts and throw it in the face of your elected official who was sworn in to uphold the laws of the U.S.; put your flag on proud display; don't patronize any business with illegal aliens anytime of the year; regardless of friendships, embarass them with facts of your school taxes because of ill-gotten freedom. A peaceful, kinder, and gentle nation? The Baby Boomers are the last of the mohicans in every aspect, if we do not do the right thing - whatever it be. They've pushed us, now shove back; being a bigger person by walking away has brought us to this - again.

Justice as used in the article is a code word for communism.

I would like to see the immigrants that are not involved in crime brought into a program to learn English and become citizens.

I would like anyone in MS-13 to be exported back to where they came, or locked up for life.

I do not think they should be used as pawns by the left, as will happen in this march.

"When: 6 p.m. Tuesday, though organizers encourage people to arrive by 5 p.m."

Funny, they can have a march when most of us are working. Or at least getting off work.

"I find it more than ironic or coincidence that the STAR doesn't promote ANTI-illegal immigration demonstrations in Indianapolis with the same fervor they do the pro-illegal, pro-amnesty open borders groups."
When was the last anti illegal immigration demostrations held in Indy? Where thousands showed up?

From what I have seen, hard working Americans are to busy or even to lazy to get out and hold a march.
