(SALEM, Ore. ) - Oregonians for Immigration Reform are holding protest events in various locations throughout the mid-Willamette Valley on Friday and Saturday.

Protesters are being cautioned by organizers to remain civil, and if you plan on attending to bring your own signs, flags, a folding chair, water, and sunscreen. "These protests are designed to raise public awareness and opposition to the Obama inspired illegal immigration surge on our Southern border." said Paul Arnold of Make them Listen.

"Our goal is to unify Americans of every race, political party, and walk of life against this Obama inspired invasion of our American homeland." said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "We want to harness the grass roots backlash forming out there and channel it into the remaining GOP primaries and general elections of 2014 to throw as many immigration reform amnesty supporters out of office as possible this year."

"This border crisis is a result of Obama's dereliction of duty and his refusal to honor his oath of office, our laws, our borders, and the US Constitution that guarantees that 'all states shall be protected from invasion'" said James Neighbors of Overpasses for America. "We need to protest and elect new members of Congress who will stop Obama's abuses of power and this invasion. Obama is making it clear that he cares more about illegal immigrants than the American citizens of all races who elected him."

the threat to america is not " illegal immigrants" the real threat is china. Obama is trying to defuse that by generating more money and cut off china. labor here,companies here, education here, work here, will make this country even stronger and paid the depth to the lenders. Do know be infected by other peoples personal feelings and look up after your country with your brain NOT feelings.
