Park Service OKs immigration reform rally on 'closed' National Mall



quote:

A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.


quote:

About 30 members of Congress are expected to attend the rally, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J. The event is hosted by several immigration activist groups, together with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO.

Well, of course. We wouldn't want illegals to suffer, just vets and commercial fisherman.

The spin will be more than the tea cups at Disneyland.
BTW, he supported removing people from their homes on "federal lands" so shouldn't he be calling for the Obamas to be removed from the White House since it is federal land as well and all federal land is closed?

The Dems own the govt. now.

It is open at their discretion.

I've been saying this area is bad politics by the Administration. I don't like it at all. Not at all.

why do they have a right to assemble but not the veterans? I think all these places should be closed but that requires right around 0 employees to be working right now.

THe director of national parks said on NPR last week that people could still use the national mall for free speech purposes. This isn't news.

SO... immigration reform rally.... yup, that's ok.

WW2 vets trying to visit the WW2 memorial? No, we can't have that.

Has there EVER been a bigger joke as a president than this one? Don't answer.. at this point, that's become a rhetorical question.

Don't defend the indefensible.
