Hurray for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer in passing a long overdue bill against illegal aliens, she imposed some of the much needed and toughest illegal alien laws in the country. Imagine that, Arizona had to pass a law that will punish people who have broken the law, go figure?
Well, as a missionary to Latin America within the United States, this past Saturday Brother Mark and I preached in downtown Los Angeles where over 100,000 angry people demanded the boarders be removed and everyone become a legal citizen. Therefore banners were raised as we rebuked the masses exhorting them that even God does not allow everyone into His kingdom, for there are conditions. You must be Born Again. God will not accept most mankind into His kingdom but He will have them deported them into the Lake of Fire.
The police moved in when one anarchist pulled out a sling-shot, another dragged the American flag on the street as these socialist made no bones about what they believe. There was a line of officers in front of us, with bike officers using their bikes as a barricade around us, with many more officers standing behind us. As this anti-American march had everyone stopping by our two banners just to shout at us, sound horns, waved flags, gave us the finger as we preached that the word ‘illegal’ as in ‘illegal alien’ means to have broken the law and therefore should be punished with jail. The TRUTH-Horn was turned up full volume as we preached ‘God Bless Arizona’ and “as with God there are rules you must abide by, nothing personal, take it as a group.”
After the marchers walked by, the police considered it safe if they escorted us back to our vehicle (see photo below from a previous event), so we were followed with bike officers for four blocks as we drove off with all our fingers and toes.
Here is a photo from the Los Angeles Times where the bike police escorted me to my car after preaching against a Prop 8 rally last year after ‘making no small stir’
NEWS STORIES FROM THE EVENT:
Marchers flood LA, other cities in Arizona immigration law protest
"……Shame on you! counterprotester Mark Steven, 53, of Garden Grove, shouted at the marchers. "You just want anarchy. This is a Communist rally." “You can be a part of our nation if you do the right thing, follow the rules," Steven, a self-described religious conservative, said. "They're nothing more than criminals." Some marchers engaged in shouting matches with Steven and other counter protesters, as police worked to protect them, but most simply walked by, ignoring them…..”
Large May Day March Crowd Calls for Immigration Reform
“…There was a briefly testy situation at the beginning of the march, where two counterprotesters with a megaphone made a point of antagonizing the arriving marchers. A crowd gathered and chants were exchanged before LAPD stepped in to calm those involved and keep people moving.”
God bless Arizona
For having a backbone and I pray other states follow their example. There is now a law that allows adults to carry a concealed weapon without the permit, and the declaration that the federal government has no right to regulate light bulbs or guns manufactured entirely within the state. Lawmakers also restricted the use of human embryos in scientific research, and made it illegal for a school district to have any courses that promote a particular ethnic group. And of course arresting the undocumented and deport them. All this with one signature.
Mexico’s Glass House:
In the spirit of Matthew 7:5 Jesus said; “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye”
When it comes to migration issues, Mexico first has to clean up its own backyard. For as abuse, the Mexican government is notorious for its abuse of Central American illegal aliens coming into their southern boarders. For example;
1-U.S, citizens must carry proof of citizenship when crossing into Mexico.
2-An automobile permit is required when driving into the interior of Mexico beyond the border cities. The permits, good for up to 180 days, may be obtained at the border
3-It is unlawful to operate a motor vehicle in Mexico without auto mobile insurance issued by a Mexican insurance company
4-Mexican citizens can hold you and have you arrested without the proper paper work
5-Mexican immigration law was amended, the penalties for entering Mexico illegally ranged from fines to imprisonment for up to two years, followed by deportation.
6-The law now allows for fines up to 5700 pesos (roughly $470), and a $400 fine for overstaying on a visa.
7-The Mexican Constitution bans direct ownership by foreigners of real estate within 10 kilometers (or 6.2 miles) of any border and within 50 kilometers (31 miles) of any coastline.
8-In order to permit foreign investment in these areas, the Mexican government has created a trust mechanism in which a bank has title to the property but a trust beneficiary enjoys the benefits of ownership," the State Department profile on Mexico reads. "However, U.S. citizens are vulnerable to title challenges that may result in years of litigation and possible eviction."
9-Mexican soldiers are used to crack down on their southern frontier.
10-In Mexico, non-natives are banned from those and thousands of other jobs, even if they are legal, naturalized citizens
11-Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.
12-Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment.
13-Law enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations.
14-Noncitizens cannot “in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.”
15-Migrants in Mexico are facing a major human rights crisis leaving them with virtually no access to justice, fearing reprisals and deportation if they complain of abuses," Amnesty cited statistics from the Mexican National Human Rights Commission, which showed that nearly 10,000 migrants had been abducted, mainly for ransom, over a period of six months in 2009. The report also said that an estimated six out of 10 migrant women and girls have experienced sexual violence at the hands of criminals, other migrants or corrupt public officials. Persistent failure by the authorities to tackle abuses carried out against irregular migrants has made their journey through Mexico one of the most dangerous in the world.
If our own Arnold Schwarzenegger had migrated to Mexico instead of the United States, he couldn’t be a governor and what do they get from us…….. only free education, free health care, subsidized housing, food stamps, free legal representation, social security checks…..and they demand more?
