The new civil rights movement

Civil rights for illegal aliens?
That's next, it seems...
One protest organizer described the effort as "the beginning of an immigration civil rights movement."
"This is the tip of the iceberg," said Marissa Graciosa, a political organizer at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, one of several groups that rallied about 300,000 people into the streets of Chicago on March 10.
It occurs to me, the descendant of legal immigrants, that something is wrong with this picture. Half a million in LA? 300 thou is Chicago? How many of those marchers are here illegally?
I'll offer a suggestion.
Have INS agents attend some of these demonstrations. Let's have them question a few folks, asking for small details like green cards, etc. If someone turns up illegal, boom! Start the deportation ball rolling immediatamente.
And, if Mexico continues to insist and work toward facilitating illegal entry into the US of A, then get a congressman (Tom Tancredo comes to mind) to enter a bill banning ALL immigration from Mexico until things change.
