laws using the Detention and Task Force Models under 287(g),
Consuls say Irving overzealous, but
mayor defends crackdown on illegal immigrants. Mexican
Consul Enrique Hubbard Urrea has issued an unusual warning to
immigrants from his country: "Avoid the city of Irving.
Deportations in this city have skyrocketed in the last several
months – from 262 in all of 2006 to 1,338 through
RELATED DMN NEWS ARTICLES:
The Irving City Council unanimously approved an
ordinance adopting the Criminal Alien Program earlier this
year after police began practicing it in 2006.
The City of Irving has stepped up their efforts to control
their illegal alien problem as you can see from the articles
above. They are doing what every City in America should be
doing. It was tough getting them started but with the hard
work from true patriotic citizens like Sue Richardson (a resident and a patriot activist in
Irving), and two Councilman Beth Van Duyne and Tom Spink, the
City is making a stand.
Beth VanDuyne has been fighting for our immigration laws to be enforced locally in
order to keep criminal illegal aliens from being turned back
into the community after being arrested. Tom Spink's primary campaign issue
supported the implementation of the Detention and Task Force
Models under 287(g) - programs still needed based on the number
of illegal aliens committing crimes serious enough to land them
in the Irving jail.
Sue's request below is heart felt but going to support
the Police Chief and the Council in this matter will mean a lot.
We have been asking for someone to do something and now Irving,
Texas is doing something. Let's go and support them.

THE FOLLOWING IS FROM SUE RICHARDSON:
My original response to Carlos Quintanilla and the Mexican
Consul and their protest plans for tomorrow night at City Hall
was to ignore them and not give them credibility. However, since
the Mayor continues to escalate the issue with interviews and
meetings, and take credit that doesn't belong to him for the
arrests of illegal aliens, we have decided to turn out in
support of Beth Van Duyne's and Tom Spink's stand favoring
287(g), but not as ramble rousers.
I do not know if the numbers in the video are accurate.
There is reference to the numbers on the internet but nothing in
the mainstream media that I could find.
Anyone willing to participate, please view the attached Youtube
video. You can pause it on the different frames containing
pictures of the victims and the frame describing who they are
and how they died. After pausing, you can print the picture and
Please print one victim with information and bring it with you
to the IRVING City Hall tomorrow evening (09-26-2007) around 6:30-6:45pm. Our
statements should address our compassion being for the people
being murdered and abused by illegal aliens, and seniors who
cannot afford food and medicine because of the drain on our
Welfare dollars to support the healthcare, education, birth, and
upbringing of illegal aliens costing billions of dollars to the
People who support illegal immigration are supporting the
invasion of America. If our soldiers can fight and give their
blood for our freedom in Iraq, Vietnam, France, Germany, Italy,
etc., the least we can do is take a stand for them to have a
safe and secure country for them to come home to.
The Mayor has started his campaign for re-election by
flip-flopping on the immigration issue because he knows he
cannot get re-elected if he opposes us. Why he thinks we would
fall for this new smoke and mirrors stuff and support somebody
with his sanctuary city record over Beth VanDuyne who has always
been in favor of ridding our city of criminal illegal aliens is
beyond me. However,
it is up to us to expose his new game. If someone asks you about
it, quote his record and remind them that 1000 citizens forced
the city to change their policy and start identifying and
deporting illegal aliens. Why would we trust him to not return
to those policies over someone like Beth VanDuyne who has been
on our side and fought him for 2 years on this issue? With his
record, how do we know that he is not using everything to stage
in his favor. With his action against the citizens and in favor
of the illegal aliens when he signed the ACORN letter, how do we
know that he ha not made commitments to the illegal alien
supporters to turn back the clock if they will help him get
re-elected? Had he been so adamant a year ago, we might give him
the benefit of the doubt, but when people wait until campaign
season to flip-flop, it means nothing except I think the voters
are stupid enough to buy what I am selling.
Another reason we can give for not trusting him is his request
for Bob Moon, who is with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, to
get people to the June 14th city council meeting to support the
adoption of the least effective immigration policy of those
available through ICE - CAP (which is not even a program, but a
policy to make a phone call that has been available for at least
15 or 20 years, but ignored by Cannaday and Boyd until our
Petition in September 2006). In any event, Bob Moon put out an
email stating that the Mayor had asked for help and Carlos
showed up and supported the Mayor. We supported the smoke and
mirrors policy called a program too, but as a first step due to
the number of illegals in Irving. By the sheer numbers being
taken into the jail and identified, the policy they are calling
CAP has proven that his sanctuary city policies have worked and
we are flooded with illegals and now, more than ever, need to
implement all law enforcement measures available to cities.
Carlos and the Mexican Consul are calling for a boycott of
Irving and I understand that they will demonstrate at the mall
tomorrow night. Frankly, the mall has started catering to them,
so if Carlos hurts their business, he is only hurting the people
he says he is trying to help.
Report: This overview is from my perspective and location at the
protest. I stayed about an hour.
The Irving deportation protest rally was attended in large
numbers. I guess about 500. Those of us there to SUPPORT the
Irving Police were about 45 people. I did see a few people drive
by and then leave. I assume that they left because of the large
numbers there to protest. I also assume that they were coming to
support the Police and we were scatted in several areas. Parking
was restricted because the police blocked a few parking lot
MEDIA: I saw at least 4 Spanish radio stations, channel 4, WB33,
Channel 11. I was told that the Spanish stations were
publicizing this protest since Sunday. Sue Richardson of Irving
decided late Monday night to ask those who support the Irving
police to come and show support - kind of a counter protest.
Quite a few people heard about it on 570 KLIF and came out to
VIOLENCE: I did not see any. We did have a few people try to
start something by calling us names and saying things that would
make most Americans mad. We just stood there holding our signs. Most of the signs were about supporting Irving,
enforce the law, etc... Nothing racial or rude that I could see.
I did see on Channel 4 later tonight that an Older Anglo man
grabbed a Hispanic Male by the throat. This was uncalled for and
he should not have fallen for their tactics. Other than that on
the News, everything was peaceful.
THE MESSAGE: The message given by the rally leaders was that the
police are racial profiling and deporting. The facts that the
Irving police were only checking the legal status of those in
jail was never clarified that I could tell. There were many
people talking and the only one that I could identify at my
distance was Hector Flores. They spoke Spanish 95% of the time
and said things like: (I am paraphrasing and translating here):
- If they are going to arrest one of us then they need to arrest
all of us. They can't arrest us all. The Jail is not large
- If they are going to deport us, then why not deport us to
Germany. (followed by yelling 'Nazis')
- At 10:00 AM everyone should call Irving (mayor's office) to
tell them to stop deportation.
- If they get deported, the economy of Irving will not survive
- they encouraged those who could vote to do so. And those that
are not registered to vote should do so. They can take over
Irving and voting was the way to do it.
- They said that people should not be deported because of the
color of their skin. Repeated many times.
THE POLICE: The police were there in large numbers. They were
very friendly and a few made an effort to come by and thanked us
for our support. We all thanked them for their work and they
were appreciative of it.
09-27-2007:RALLY ACTION ALERT - IRVING, TX

AFTER THE RALLY REPORT: The masses did not show up.
There were a few of the protest leaders there but the masses were
not there. Maybe they realized that the protest leaders were
misleading them. After all, the police are only deporting
Criminal Illegal Aliens. There were also several radio and TV
stations there all expecting the masses.
