Hispanics Join Civil Rights March on Washington

Published at 10:08 am EST, August 25, 2013

Hispanics joined forces with African-Americans on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington during which, among other issues, they again pressured Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform.

The speakers, several of them Hispanic, together with the people attending the event, acknowledged the need to find a solution for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States, and did not hesitate to draw parallels between the situation of immigrants today and the plight of blacks in the 1960s.

“This is not the time for self-congratulatory celebration….The fight must continue,” said Martin Luther King III, son of the famous African-American activist who 50 years ago made the historic “I have a dream” speech, and added that among other goals still waiting for America to achieve is an immigration reform to end the harassment suffered by “our brothers and sisters” and to provide them with a path to citizenship.

Though African-Americans were the overwhelming majority in a march that attracted tens of thousands of people to the heart of Washington, whites and Hispanics also attended an event that, in the words of Attorney General Eric Holder, had a much more integrated character than the one in 1963.

“Those who marched on Washington in 1963 had taken a long and difficult road. As we gather today, 50 years later, their march is now our march, and it must go on,” Holder said.

The attorney general said that in today’s America, the march for justice has broadened to include women, Latinos, Asian-Americans, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and others.

Together with T-Shirts commemorating slain African-American teenager Trayvon Martin and posters slamming a recent Supreme Court ruling that invalidated a key element of the law protecting minorities’ right to vote, calls for immigration reform had a notable presence in the demonstration.

For her part, Latino activist Itzel Guillen, who flew in from San San Diego expressly for the occasion, told Efe that “the Hispanic community today faces challenges very like those African-Americans had to deal with 50 years ago. Today, for example, we are fighting for immigration reform, for our people, so that they can be citizens with equal rights and can vote.”

The Hispanic community thus responded to the call made in the past few days by several Latino politicians and leaders like Congressman Luis Gutierrez and the president and CEO of the National Council of La Raza, Janet Murguia, who consider the uniting of minorities “basic” to achieving their shared civil-rights goals.

Pest Control : How to Kill German Roaches - YouTube

German roaches are nasty roaches that have to be killed by putting botanical dust into their food sources. Look

The German cockroach (Blattella germanica) is a small species of cockroach, measuring about 1.3 to 1.6 cm (0.51 to 0.63 in) long; however, larger individuals have been recorded[citation needed]. It can be tan through brown to almost black, and has two dark parallel streaks running from the head to the base of the wings. Although it has wings, it is unable to sustain flight. Found throughout many human settlements, these insects are particularly associated with restaurants, food processing facilities, hotels, and nursing homes. In colder climates, they are found only near human habitats, since they are not very tolerant to cold. However, German cockroaches have been found as far north as Alert, Nunavut,[1] and as far south as southern Patagonia.[2] The German cockroach is originally from Africa.

University of Notre Dame to Accept Undocumented Students and Provide Financial Aid

University of Notre Dame this week announced changes to its admission policies that will allow academically qualified undocumented students to apply for admission.

The Catholic university and home to the ‘Fighting Irish’ said in their announcement,“In making the decision to admit academically qualified men and women who are undocumented, we will strengthen our incoming class and give deserving young people the chance for a Notre Dame education.” The university based in South Bend, Indiana says its decision was also driven by its mission as a Catholic institution.

In addition the university will provide financial aid to undocumented students to help defer the cost of tuition, which is set at $44,605. For a student living on campus tuition plus room & board is over $60,000 annually.

Not everyone is happy with the schools new admission policy. Notre Dame College Republicans President Mark Gianfella said to WSBT-TV,“The university definitely chooses to enforce every other law on campus, such as drinking, which is known by every student, or the drug policy, which is very strongly enforced, yet it sends an inconsistent and sometimes confusing message to then ignore the fact that undocumented students are really illegal aliens.”

Applications from undocumented students will start to be accepted this fall for admission in 2014.

Several other prominent universities have also recently announced their plan to allow undocumented students to apply including University of Michigan and Santa Clara University.

The University of Notre has announced that it will now admit illegal immigrants and give them generous amounts of money from school coffers to ease the burden of the school’s annual cost for tuition, room and board of over $57,000.

Officials at the famous Catholic school in Indiana say the new illegal-immigrant friendly policy will “strengthen” the student body, reports The Washington Times.

Notre Dame had never officially prohibited admission to illegal immigrants before instituting the new measure. Under the previous rules, however, the school regarded illegal immigrants as international students and insisted that they have visas.(RELATED: Obama hides Obamacare subsidies

I have no issues with immigrants, but as long as they are illegally here in this country, then that's the issue. Please distinguish between immigrants and illegals/invaders. Anyone with open eyes can see what their angle is. It's a bold but smart move on the Hispanics part. Once they use the blacks to get their citizenship, their amnesty will push them to the front of the lines for jobs, jobs that blacks will definitely have to compete for let alone other Americans. This is why my girlfriend says education is one of the best investments one can make because it bumps you ahead of another million who don't possess the education to do the jobs that pay more. I don't think I can do school, but maybe, who knows. I'm in a good field here though that pays pretty good. Blacks better focus on education because Hispanics are taking advantage of every freebie and opportunities this President is handing out. He's giving them something for their kind vote.

White Hispanics don't renounce their whiteness. They are proud of their European heritage as much or more than your USA Anglo buddies are. Smokin cannabis lately?

Hispanics benefited from the civil rights movement -so why would we not march? Give credit where credit is due to MLK. Thank you.

And remember Latino Americans -don't ask for amnesty for invaders to bring in and create a permanent underclass. This doesn't help America and is disrespectful.

Call for a revolution in Mexico instead so Mexico can be built up by ousting its' foreign userper power base.

Any Hispanic leaders calling for amnesty there should be ashamed of themselves for being pawns in the globalists chess game.

You don't mind domestic spying yet? Wait till the government starts using your stollen private info to blackmail YOU into comitting crimes on their behalf. Welcome to modern day tyranny -high tech style.

Merger of state and corporation always = fascism/tyranny. Remember, we Americans will only recieve what we are willing put up with. They are testing us right now. Let's push back.

Mainstream media leaves you depressed, dumbed down, empty and hopeless. What kind of crap will they focus on next to distract us from what's really important?

Truth based media gives you a heads up and broadens your horizons. It protects your family, health, and life savings. It's your decision...

http://www.infowars.com/leaked-u-s-army-docum...

Once you have a taste of truthful reporting you never go back to mainstream contrived corporate media.

These hosts bash Republicans and Democrats equally because they know both sides are illuminati bought puppets out to screw us.

Give alternative news sources a chance before you knock them. Download these shows to your MP3 players and listen on your way to work or whatever. All you need from mainstream media is breaking news and traffic/weather. You can listen to all these shows on your smart phone as well.

Exposes Wallstreet and absolutely teaches you how to protect your money from the crooked banksters

Often Exposes NASA Disinformation and Possible Offworld Intelligence -Search "Coast to Coast 2012 Shows" on Youtube and listen or use downloader -This is one way /Or get a CC Witness radio and record AM from your local affiliate. There is CIA disinfo injected from some of the guests but you learn how to identify it after a while by researching the guests' backgrounds. The hosts are simply great.

Connects Bible Predictions/Prophecy to Modern Day Events -How Illuminati uses bible prophecy to plan false flag disasters eg. earthquakes, etc. There could also be some CIA brainwashing here as well from some of the guest lecturers but they give a heads up of what to look out for/predict down the road. The host does a good job of teaching about the bible and does not fear political correctness.

http://prophecyclub.com/TPC_Audio_Video.html

These radio hosts should do a show together or at least make guest appearences on each others shows. They all value truth and liberty in their own way.

Here's my take on it. Don't be afraid to speak out as we are all on some type of list by now:

You have to understand that free speech on the net is about to be clamped down on in America.-mainland China style.

The problem with illegal immigration is that it works.

No, seriously. Illegal immigration works really, really well.

Illegals keep coming here from Mexico and points south because it really works for them. They are making a living for their families. They frequently take great risks to come here; some die on the way. They work hard when they get here, many times in manual labor or lightly skilled jobs. They save their money, but they also buy things they couldn’t get or couldn’t afford in their own countries. They make sacrifices, being away from families and friends and familiar surroundings.

But it works for them. They’re able to move up in the world, get work, receive on-the-job training. Immigrating illegally makes their lives better.

Illegal immigration works for employers. They hire illegals for less than they would have to pay locals. The illegals, motivated by money, opportunity and security, work hard. Their employers frequently get more value for the wage paid. Many locals aren’t nearly so motivated. The employer doesn’t have to do nearly as much paperwork, doesn’t have to pay FICA and other employment taxes, doesn’t have to pay as much for bookkeeping. Employers do well in this arrangement.

Ask a hotel owner or a construction contractor who their best workers are. Try to bid on a big contract competitively without building in some illegal labor. It will cost 40 percent more to use strictly American labor, especially if you are in an industry dominated by union labor.

Illegal immigration works for consumers. Prices are a pressure point in a capitalist economy. Labor is a major component, if not the major component in manufacturing and bringing a product to market in a retail environment. Illegal labor keeps prices down, and that works for consumers.

Illegal immigration works for local governments. While crimes committed by illegal aliens get sensation media coverage, most illegals obey the law. They want to stay off the books and out of sight, so they keep that low profile low by obeying the law and staying out of trouble. If they do get into trouble, they often disappear and end up back home....
