• VIDEO: “May Day” Rally Draws Illegal Aliens out of the Shadows

    "I Don't Believe In Borders"

    Although “May Day” protests have historically focused on workers’ rights and wages, hundreds of illegal immigrants and their supporters stole the show this year as they marched from the Capitol to the White House demanding that President Obama unilaterally end deportations.

    The rally’s attendees carried signs targeting Republicans for their “inaction on immigration reform” and demanded that President Obama “act now for immigrant families.” As they marched, staff members from CASA de Maryland – a community organization for latinos and immigrants’ rights – used megaphones to lead the shopworn chants of “Si, Se Puede” (yes, we can) and “Obama, escucha! Estamos en la lucha” (Obama, listen up! We are engaged in the struggle).

    While protestors’ principal motive was urging President Obama to end deportations, participants also used the rally to advocate for “comprehensive” immigration reform and legalization of the estimated 11.7 million “immigrants” living in the United States illegally.

    According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform – a nonprofit organization that opposes amnesty – illegal immigrants cost U.S. taxpayers “more than $100 billion” annually.

    In light of that exorbitant cost, Daily Surge decided to ask the rally’s participants if they’d be willing to protest on behalf of 11.7 million Americans if they illegally immigrated to Mexico and demanded the same benefits that our government has extended to illegal aliens here.

    We also asked them if America should even have borders.

    Spoiler alert: their responses, or lack thereof, won’t surprise you.
