If you are a regular reader, you know that every weekend I run the Carnival of Cordite. Well, this week I had to delay that for a few days because of something very important that happened right here, on the campus of my law school, yesterday morning. The Carnival will be up later today (update: here it is!). But if, like most of my Carnival readers, you are a patriotic American that appreciates national sovereignty, you will need to read this post!
Yesterday, Saturday, February 11, 2006, the University of Oregon played host to a "carousel of information." If you aren't sure what that is, this post explains it all. You should be shocked and outraged. And you should demand that U of O President Dave Frohnmayer explain why his school - no, the PEOPLE'S school - played host to this event.
A "carousel of information" is a shady, half-public/half-underground system to help illegal aliens from Mexico obtain a matricula consular card, which can then be used as valid identification in the state of Oregon for the purpose of obtaining on Oregon driver's license. Obviously, once an illegal alien has obtained a state-issued driver's license, the door is open to illegal voting, illegal application for welfare benefits, illegal use of food stamps, illegal coverage under the Oregon health plan, etc.
So, in other words, this is a network to help illegal aliens infiltrate our society at taxpayer expense.
And it took place at the HEP Building, on the U of O campus.
I can't just stand idly by and ignore something like this going right under my nose, at the campus of my law school no less! Fortunately, I was far from alone...
What follows is a number of photographs from yesterday, along with links to other bloggers who have already written in more detail.
When I arrived on campus, the parking lot next to the HEP Building being used was blocked off by campus police. This parking lot also happens to be next to the law school building. I use it every day. I paid $90 for the right to park here. But not today! Notice one illegal alien is already arriving. He is allowed to enter the area the police have roped off. I was not.
This angle shows the law school, the large red brick building, in the background. The law school contains the law library, which is a public library open to all under Oregon law. Just don't park next to it.
After parking in a different lot, I walked around to the front. The other entrance/exit to this same parking lot is blocked off. Notice the campus police car lending its support to help illegal aliens.
Behind the HEP Building. Campus cops are doing their duty... to Mexico!
The State of Oregon and the University of Oregon think "public safety" includes helping illegal aliens thwart the system.
"Publicly owned" and "For official use only" seem to have some strange meaning with which I am not familiar...
Here is a state owned DHS vehicle arriving. This isn't just the Mexican consul. And it isn't just the U of O campus helping out. There are a number of state employees inside, helping illegal aliens get benefits like food stamps.
The state owned vehicle isn't parking where anyone can see it, or who comes out of it. It goes around the block. And in this photo, you can see the many patriotic Americans who I met today in protest of this event.
While the state owned vehicles park out of sight, mysterious private vehicles are allowed to move inside the barrier. Many of these vehicles have out of state plates. Many more have dealer plates. I guess there is good money in the illegal alien racket.
This car, inside the barrier next to the cop car, has California plates. What is a vehicle with California plates doing here?
Check out this expensive new van with dealer plates. Who is driving it? Why is this person allowed to drive in and park, when students with parking permits are denied access to this lot?
Who are these people, standing inside the barrier while illegals wait in line? That woman on the left is wearing a U of O name badge, but I can't get close enough to make out the name. Why are U of O staff helping out with this event? Why can't I, a student paying close to a hundred grand to this school, get an answer when I call out to this faculty member?
This gorgeous luxury SUV with dealer plates is being driven by the Mexican Consular. He came and went a lot.
This is the man helping Mexicans illegally come to America and collect welfare benefits.
And don't fall into the trap of believing that this is in any way meant to help LEGAL immigrants. One legal immigrant, with a valid green card, heard about this event and came to apply for a green card renewal. He mistakenly thought he could come here for legal immigration assistance. He was turned away. Be sure to follow this link for photos and audio. Here is the trashed form left by the immigrant who wanted to comply with the law:
So who exactly was here today in protest of this illegal assault on our national sovereignty?
The real leader of this effort is the blogger Daniel. And before you call Daniel some sort of anti-Mexican bigot, I met his wife and she is the loveliest Hispanic woman you will ever meet. She and Daniel are both the children of immigrants who came here LEGALLY.
Here is Daniel talking to a reporter from the Eugene Register-Guard newspaper. Notice the spin in the newspaper article! The first sentence:
Anti-immigration activists rallied Saturday in Eugene to oppose providing state social services to noncitizens and to criticize the Mexican consulate for issuing identification cards to immigrants.
Memo to the Red Guard: we are not anti-immigration. We are anti-ILLEGAL immigration. And we aren't opposed to "noncitizens." We are opposed to ILLEGAL ALIENS. There is a difference, as the man who came for a green card renewal found out. The only "immigrants" getting ID cards were illegal aliens, because legal immigrants with green cards DO NOT NEED A MATRICULA CARD.
Here is Daniel talking to a reporter from KEZI news:
Other bloggers there included Vonski, Nick, Kate, Cherrill, and probably some others I am forgetting (check these other blogs; I am sure they will cover anyone I missed, and they all have a ton of information about the day's goings on).
Look at these patriotic Americans lining the street in front of the HEP Building.
Our folks eventually stretched all the way down to Agate Street.
Patriotic Americans line both sides of the street. The man with the camera is from the Coos County Citizen Caucus. People came here from all over the state to show their support for our national sovereignty. The head of Oregonians for Immigration Reform came to show support. So did Jim Feldkamp, who is running for Congress this year.
Here I am signing mine. Victoria should receive it shortly!
So now that we know who is on the side of America, who are the people coming to support illegal aliens?
Early on, these two came strolling up. When I snapped this photo, I heard the blonde say "did that f'ing a'hole take our f'ing picture?"
Yes, I did.
I am guessing the blonde is an American citizen. They let her friend go in, but she had to wait outside. This woman is helping an illegal alien infiltrate our society at taxpayer expense!
This blue van came and went repeatedly, each time with different people in it. It must be nice to have a shuttle service.
Lots of the people showing up for aid came in expensive new vehicles. They must make a lot of money doing "jobs no Americans will do." No wait... they just don't pay any income taxes...
These folks came... and parked illegally on the yellow line. Well, I guess if you are willing to illegally come to America and commit welfare fraud, a little think like parking laws isn't going to slow you down...
I think this woman is here to have her anchor baby. Or maybe she is just fat. Good think DHS is here to give her food stamps!
Here is the line of people waiting to go inside for their cards:
Remember, they just want to come here and work and be part of our society... Maybe someone should tell the guy in the Steeler's hat that if wants to assimilate in the Pacific Northwest a week after the Super Bowl, he should try the Seahawks...
As the day went on, plenty of people began to show up in support of the illegals:
What Daniel is pointing at here is the opposition hiding their own signs. That's right; they have signs to show us that they are supposedly supporting immigration, yet they go out of their way to hide them whenever one of us with a camera gets ready to take a photo! What do they have to hide?
Here they are, blocking the cameras from another sign. This one says "One Race, One Love" and has a "peace" symbol on it. Or maybe that is a Mercedes logo? I can't tell, because either way, they screwed it up.
Here they are, moving in front of another sign when the cameras come out. But notice that they don't mind taking photos of us - and notice that we let them! That girl on the left said to me, and I quote: "don't you put no pictures of my ass on no website."
I lost track of how many negatives where in her statement, so I ass-umed she was asking for it.
Here is a close up of the guy filming me:
So... he supports a convicted killer... who, as founder of the Crips gang, ordered the killing of a number of Hispanic and Asian immigrants... yeah, that makes sense...
This guy's t-shirt calls for terror attacks.
I can't tell if this person is supporting the illegal aliens or is just a typical U of O student. It's hard to say.
What I have chronicled here for you is just a smattering of the information gathered by bloggers. Be sure to follow the links to the other bloggers mentioned above for more photographs and information. And if you are outraged by this, here are some things you need to do:
2) Support candidates who will stop this travesty from happening. We need a man like Jim Feldkamp in Congress. We need Jason Atkinson as our governor. And don't be fooled by the talk on Lars Larson: when it comes to illegal immigration, Jason Atkinson is tougher than Ron Saxton!
3) Spread the word. Send this story to everyone you know! Tell Michelle Malkin, because we need a national voice like hers to expose this to all America!
