Good idea! Surely the blood was marked with "may be contaminated we really don't know."

Prolly colored water. These hunger strikes are a hoax too. How do you verify someone is not eating?

You're right. If they were REALLY sincere, they'd see it through and starve themselves to death. I'm betting that won't happen. But they will succeed in proving themselves to be cowards.

These articles are all the same:
They paint this sentimental picture that is supposed to inspire sympathy. Well guess what, a country isn't governed by sentiment. It is governed by the rule of law.
Enough with this ridiculous sentiment.
It's time for enforcement.

Giving blood is not how you become an American citizen. They need to go hme, and apply for legal citizenship. This is ridiculous.

Yep.....if they want to show citizenship they need to obey the laws and go through the legal immagration process.....

trying to give a "donation" for citizenship is bribery.......which is also against the law.....

seems the illegals are willing to break all laws to become a citizen but are not willing to obey one law to become a citizen....

Yep......they will make some find citizens alright.......

Even the title of the article is a farce!
You can't "Show Citizenship" by "Giving Blood."
You must "show" a birth certificate or naturalization papers. Why would these idiots expect anything other than a cup of orange juice after giving blood? Is it because they beleive in entitlements? And how many laws did they break BEFORE giving blood!?

These illegals are desperate. They know how idiotic it sounds to invade another country and then demand citizenship. So they engage in silly PR stunts like going on phony "hunger strikes". HAHA

Oh dear, giving a pint of blood while on a hunger strike. I wonder how the Red Cross is dealing with all the illegals fainting across their donor centers.

It's just one scam after another, isn't it? How do these people expect to be taken seriously if they can't even come up with a decent strategy.

Yesterday they were hanging out in Boston at the Park Plaza Hotel protesting Scott Brown's Christmas party. If they think they're going to garner any sympathy by crashing a Christmas party and demanding rights, they are sorely mistaken. If anything, it will only drive those who may have been on the fence about the issue to grow disgusted with the demands and sense of entitlement.

I'm counting on that too. Americans are sick of this crap. It's like if some strangers invaded your home and made demands!!!
