Protesters descend on Capitol to march against 'amnesty,' for American jobs | The Daily Caller

WASHINGTON — Hundreds of people from across the country marched, sweated and called for lawmakers to end the push for “amnesty” on Capitol Hill Monday.
Organized by the Black American Leadership Alliance, the protestors marched in scorching heat from Freedom Plaza to Capitol Hill, where they rallied in a demonstration against current immigration reform attempts.
“There are three kinds of people who support this amnesty,” Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King said before the march. “There are those people who are elitists, who want the cheap laborers to clean their houses and mow their lawn. Another are political power brokers that want the power that comes from it, and the third are employers of elitists.”

Lawmakers and activists joined the marchers from states as far as California and Arizona in a long rally at the Upper Senate Park, where activists spoke about the Senate immigration reform’s expected effect on America and, specifically, the plight of black Americans and American workers.
Marchers carried signs reading “No Amnesty,” “American Jobs for American Worker“ and “Secure the Border.” At least one sign harkened back to Benghazi: “Where are the Benghazi survivors? Impeach Obama.” Many wore red t-shirts reading “Protect American Jobs, No Amnesty.”
The relatively diverse crowd featured many Tea Party supporters who donned their Tea Party garb and flags.

“We have come to ask [lawmakers] to do not throw poor and black people under the bus in order to garner Hispanic votes,” said O’Neal Dozier, senior pastor at The Worldwide Christian Center in Pompano Beach, Florida as he kicked off rally speeches.
Two members of the Alabama delegation joined in rallying the crowd — Republican Rep. Mo Brooks and Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions.
Brooks called for people embrace facts rather than emotion to see “why the Senate immigration bill must be stopped at all costs,” and argued that America has been one of the “most compassionate and generous and kind-hearted nations in the world when it comes to immigration. But we can be compassionate and still stop something that goes to such great excess that it is a danger to our country.”

Louisiana state senator Elbert L. Guillory, who recently switched from the Democratic to Republican Party, spoke about President Obama not securing the borders.
“[Obama] pretends to care about poor people. He pretends to care about the middle class, but he doesn’t,” Guillory said. “We are in his hip pocket. He counts on us to vote for him and his policies. He counts on us but we don’t count. We don’t count to him.”
Christopher, a marcher from Arizona told TheDC that he traveled to Washington to march to tell Congress to consider American workers first.
“Where I live at is really bad, the immigration problem. The unemployment rate — I’m just going to keep it real — for blacks in Arizona is like off the chart and for the youngsters it’s like double that,” he said.
“This lengthy bill is ridiculous,” Dina, a marcher who traveled from North Carolina told TheDC. “We’re against anything except securing the border and then we wouldn’t have this problem.”
“A lot of Americans need jobs right now,” added another marcher from Ohio, rhetorically asking,“Why are we giving citizenship to illegal aliens?”

It's about time Black leadership came to their senses about this issue. Now for the rest of America to put their collective foot down.
