DEMONSTRATIONS FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS' "RIGHTS"

This section of DiscoverTheNetworks explores the worldviews and objectives of many key organizations and individuals that have participated in mass demonstrations advocating open borders and expanded rights for illegal aliens. A number of these "immigrant-rights" rallies featured tens of thousands -- and, in some cases, hundreds of thousands -- of marchers demanding that the needs and grievances of illegal immigrants (euphemistically dubbed "undocumented workers") be addressed. Such demonstrations made big headlines in the spring of 2006 and again a year later.

The aforementioned mobilizations were first triggered as a protest against the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of H.R. 4437, a bill titled the “Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005.” This bill's intent was to make it a felony for anyone to reside in the United States illegally; to require the Department of Homeland Security to construct a double security fence across several portions of the Mexican border; to encourage local police departments to enforce federal immigration laws; to make it a felony for anyone “to assist, encourage, direct, or induce [any illegal alien] to enter or remain in the country"; and to penalize (in the amount of $40,000 per worker) any employer who hired illegal immigrants for any position.

The massive "immigrant-rights" demonstrations of 2006 and 2007 were intended to support the efforts of legislators who were trying (ultimately without success) to pass the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 and the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Reform Act of 2007. Both of those bills contained provisions for a path to citizenship for the approximately 12 to 20 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. Noteworthy venues where these rallies took place included such cities as: New York, Washington DC, Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Denver, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Milwaukee.

Among the key groups that helped organize, promote, and fund the rallies were:

On March 21, 2010, another large immigration rally -- organized by leftist groups like those listed above -- was held in Washington, DC.  A month later, on April 21, demonstrations were held in seven U.S. cities -- the largest of these in Las Vegas and Seattle. Ten days after that, on May 1, additional large rallies were held in cities across the United States; the Service Employees International Union staged 16 of these, including one in Washington, DC.
