Hate on the Highways

Did you hear the one about the bust up of that terror plot in Canada? None of the alleged terrorists were undocumented.

Did you hear that there’s like 10,000 Border Patrol agents on the Mexico-U.S. border compared to the 1,000 on the Canandian border even though it’s twice as long?

Isn’t it ironic?

Anti-illegal immigration billboards go up in California

IRWINDALE, Calif. Anti-illegal immigration activists are taking their message to the state’s highways with a series of billboard ads.

The first of the billboards paid for by the group Grassfire-dot-org went up yesterday near the Foothill and San Gabriel freeways in Irwindale.

Organizers say Some fifteen more billboards with the message “Stop The Invasion: Save Our Border” are planned for the state. The group already has its message on billboards in Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Florida and West Virginia.

Grassfire-dot-org president Steve Elliott says the billboards will send a strong message to Congress as it discusses immigration reform.

But some immigration advocates say the billboards are racist and inflammatory and could further unify Latinos on immigrant rights.
