FAIR Was There (and boy were the illegal alien advocacy groups ticked)


A coalition of illegal alien advocacy groups including MALDEF, CHIRLA, SEIU and several dozen protestors holding signs demanding amnesty for illegal aliens, held a news conference on the steps of the Los Angeles City Hall this afternoon. The objective of the news conference was to support the Kennedy-McCain amnesty bill introduced in Congress last month.

While the Hold Their Feet to the Fire campaign like the Minuteman Project have drawn national and international media attention, the dozen or so illegal alien advocacy groups managed to attract mostly the ethnic media and only one English-language all-news radio station to cover their event. Despite a sound system that would be the envy of a heavy metal band, the illegal alien advocacy groups were unable to draw any attention from the lunchtime passersby in downtown L.A.

After the formal press conference, FAIR media director Ira Mehlman was interviewed by the press that did attend, presenting the arguments against rewarding millions of illegal aliens, and in the process punishing millions more Americans and legal immigrants. The organizers clearly were not pleased, as each interview was accompanied by angry glares from the leaders of the illegal alien advocacy groups who hovered around.
