Patriotism Holds: Angry Protesters Turn Back Illegal Alien Buses

Written by Kevin Fobbs on July 3, 2014

There comes a time in the course of human history when a nation determines that its citizen’s rights shall not be trampled, stripped away or pummeled into the ground by government. And yes, on the eve of the nation’s celebration, one American city stood up and told the Obama administration that enough is enough and wanted no more illegals streaming into their city by the busloads. According to Fox News, protesters stood their ground and took a stand by turning back buses carrying illegal alien children heading into their town.

A day which shall be remembered as possibly one of the warning protests that symbolizes patriotic freedom came in part at the urging of Mayor Alan Long of Murietta, California. Mayor Long urged city residents to complain to elected officials concerning the transfer of Central American illegal immigrants to their town. The founding fathers would indeed have been proud at one the good townspeople did next.

When the Homeland Security buses came rumbling across the city border they were met by the symbol of freedom which has been carried into battle in every war by freedom-protecting fighting men and women. The power and the authority of the Obama administration was met head on by individual citizens who demanded that their sovereignty over their city and its territory would not be trashed by illegal immigrants and their protectors from the Obama federal government.

As the buses attempted to inch forward, the flag waving protesters grew firmer in their stance, unwilling to witness nor permit the undoing of their freedom to not be usurped by tyrannical edicts that give 52,000 and counting illegal alien children the right of entry into America.

The standoff was apparently successful as the three buses carrying 140 immigrants making an attempt to enter the U.S. Border Patrol station were blocked and had to be turned around, reported Fox News. Who could have blamed the mayor, who like many of the townspeople had grown tired of having more and more illegal aliens being sent to their town due to the overcrowding at facilities at the Texas-Mexico border.

The welfare of the illegal immigrant children who had crossed the border into America was the least of the protesters concerns. One protester, Nancy Greyson, said, “We can’t start taking care of others if we can’t take care of our own,” reported Fox News.

If there was a feeling that the plight of the illegals who were allegedly escaping violence and extortion from gangs in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras was an issue, it was lost on the crowd. It was the sheer volume of numbers that has many residents in border towns afraid of being overrun, by illegals with no possible end in sight.

Thus far since last October more than 52, 000 children who were unaccompanied have managed to cross into the nation by way of the Texas-Mexico border. The president has called the flood of illegal children a humanitarian crisis. Many conservatives have viewed this as a crisis that was manufactured by Obama, who has given many illegals the impression that they will receive leniency from U.S. authorities, according to Fox News.

These residents were not buying the humanitarian argument. It was clear from just the news video that there was an over abundance of signs that clearly demonstrated the feelings of the townsfolk who were at the protest. U.S. flags where held by hundreds of patriots. Many others there had signs stating “illegals out!” and reading “Stop illegal immigration.”

How fitting that one town in America stood its ground and showed the nation that right here and right now Americans would stop talking about freedom and begin to defend it in their own home town!
