Illegal Immigrant Allies Threaten Children of Border Security Group

Should illegal immigrants get jobs that American will do if given a chance? Casa de Maryland doesn't think so and is using intimidation against children to stop the Minutemen from monitoring day labor centers in the Washington DC area.

An article published yesterday by the Sean Sands of Maryland Community Newspapers Online quoted Casa de Maryland’s Executive Director Gustavo Torres saying “We are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids and go to their work. If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know their neighbors are extremists, that they are anti-immigrant. They are going to hear from us.”

The Minutemen have been photographing contractors picking up illegal aliens for work at the Wheaton day laborer center in Maryland spurring conflict with the illegal immigrant supporters.

Casa de Maryland, according to their own website, was “designed to address the multiple conditions of poverty and disenfranchisement that control the lives of many Latino immigrants and refugees“ and “achieves its goals through programs in areas such as leadership, organizing, women's empowerment, tenant support, employment, legal services, health, education, social services, and immigration assistance.”

What the the Minutemen do isn't illegal; what the Casa de Maryland does could be. Isn't aiding and abetting lawbreakers a crime? Aren't illegal immigrants in fact criminals? And they are using taxpayer dollars to help illegals break the law and at the same time they are threatening children.

Should we have compassion on some immigrants that we invite to come here? Yes we should. Should we allow all immigrants that want to come here waltz in anytime they feel like it to strain social services and take jobs that Americans do want? This s a definite no.

Another definite "no" should be directed toward Casa de Maryland that is using tax-payer dollars to break the law. They and their thuggish behavior should go.
