The battle for taking back this country is breaking out in Huntington Park, CA.
Forget reserving the fight for the national stage. Getting things right in your home and hometown makes the immediate and long-term difference. Statewide races come and go, with diverse outcomes abounding. The fight to take back our country begins at the local level, in our cities and towns. The “Shot Heard Round the World” which sparked the American Revolution, came out of the barrel of a gun in the hands of local farmers against the British Empire. The Internet and social media allowed concerned citizens to rage against and expose machine political corruption and effrontery to the rule of law. Out of the mouths of enraged citizens in Huntington Park, born and naturalized, came the shout “We’ve had enough!”
Shirley Husar of Urban Game Changers, California lashed out at the council:
You all have failed all of us. You failed us by not being connected with the Latino community who are Americans, who were born here, who immigrated here legally. What you have done is you have empowered illegal immigrants by working on your campaign. Now you’re doing kickbacks by appointing them to city commissions. . .Now the world is looking at this board, questioning the state of California on its ethics, on its ability to execute and to move forward. You wanna know why Donald Trump is popular? It’s because of people like you! The American Way is to go through the Judicial process of law and justice. We are tired of people like you who think you have power. I hope they hunt you on social media. . You don’t represent Huntington Park. We represent Huntington Park!
Bob Beck listed the names of fellow patriots would could not attend the August 17th, 2015 city council meeting: “These patriots were peace officers, military men and citizens whose lives were snuffed out by illegal aliens. . .Thank you for allowing me to speak. God bless Donald Trump, and You’re Fired!”
Robin Hvidston of “We the People Rising” addressed the city council:
I would like to first point out “Help Americans First”. Our nation has millions of suffering Americans. Unemployed. We have more than 400,000 foster kids. Veterans that are homeless. Americans need help. That should be the focus of our elected officials, from the federal, the state, down to our municipal body politics. You should focus on American citizens first. And that issue is relevant to the appointment. This body politic is knowingly breaking federal immigration law.
Sandra Orozco of Maywood, California:
I am outraged. How dare you not put me at the beginning! You tried to censor me. Shame on you! You need to appoint legal citizens. Period! . . .Shame on you Pineda! [the council member who appointed the two illegal aliens] You need to be recalled!. . .This is worse than the Bell Scandal in 2010.
Chanel Temple of Hawthorne, CA (born and raised in Huntington Park) went on an epic rant against the city council’s spurious correlation between African slaves and the Hispanic illegal aliens in the United States:
In the U.S. we have one rule of law. I also want to talk about the Fourteenth Amendment, which was added to the Constitution in regards to blacks being given birthright citizenship because blacks helped build this country, including the White House—twice.
Please do not tarnish the name of black slaves by comparing them to your plight. There’s no comparison. None. Black slaves did not break into this country, okay. They were brought here against their will. Also, black slaves are not immigrants. Immigrants are people with a choice, they come here by choice. Black slaves didn’t have choice.
Raul Rodrigues of “America First Latinos” gave the city council resignation slips:
On August third, this city council voted to appoint to illegal aliens, because that is what they are,
Francisco Rivera, a legal immigrant and long-time HP resident, shared the following:
I can honestly tell you guys, I’ve been here for 35 years, and I’ve looked at you straight in the eyes, every single meeting. I never even knew these guys existed ’til now! I’ve never seen them in my life! All of a sudden they’re gonna get rewarded by breaking federal laws, ladies and gentlemen?
And if I’m not mistaken, I ask myself–doesn’t the City of Huntington Park receive federal money? But yet, you break federal laws! Or, you reward people that break federal laws.
One of the last city residents to address the council, Betty Retama, rebuked the city council for their untenable appointment, particularly the argument that this measure would increase their chances for legal status:
Charity begins at home. You have your own agenda. You’ve made up your own rules, your own laws. But there is one law superior. You are not the law.
Retama’s ancestry stretches back long before the foundation of the United States of America. She is no immigrant, but a life-long citizen of this country.
After the meeting, We the People Rising posed in front of State Senator Ricardo Lara (see above), another pandering California politician who has advanced an illegal alien agenda at the expense of all law-abiding California citizens.
The next day, local activists who first met at the meeting shared information and discussed the process for mounting a recall. The City Clerk released DVD copies of the council meeting. Investigations have begun into the legal status of the current Mayor, Karina Macias. The City Clerk reported to me that “This information is not available.” Alex Reynoso, a business owner and community leader, shared with me his chief intent to join the recall effort and replace the corrupt officials on the current city council. He marveled that so many people of different colors and backgrounds came together to support liberty and the rule of law against unjust governments: “That’s what America is about!”
Indeed. In Huntington Park, We the People witnessed the Shout Heard Round the World Wide Web.
