Illegal Alien Bus Tour to Visit Democratic Convention
"A busload of undocumented immigrants has departed for Charlotte, on its way to protest during the Democratic National Convention. The occupants will risk deportation to demonstrate in Mecklenburg County, where sheriff's deputies check the immigration status of people who are arrested. The group will join hundreds of other illegal immigrants who could march during the convention, protest organizers said," the Charlotte Observer reports.
"But the bus tour prompted harsh criticism from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which advocates for stricter enforcement. 'This is militant in-your-face defiance of the rule of law,' said Bob Dane, spokesman for the group. 'This is the chaos of nonenforcement of immigration from the top down.'"
