Last week about 5,000 screaming, chanting, resentful illegal aliens and the remora-like subversives who support them took over Washington Street in front of the Georgia Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Many carried signs that said "UNDOCUMENTED AND UNAFRAID" and "WE WILL NOT LEAVE!" and "NO TO HB 87!" and "LEGALIZATION FOR ALL" and "WE WILL NOT COMPLY!" The Capitol grounds looked and sounded like the televised mass rallies that take place in chaotic Third World nations on the way to revolution.

The hated object of the angry, riotous protest was any enforcement of American immigration laws in general and HB 87, the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011 authored by state Rep. Matt Ramsey, in particular. HB 87 is the most well written and most potentially effective state immigration enforcement bill in the nation.

The message, even though most of the day-long rally was conducted in a foreign language, was quite clear: "Your laws do not apply to us unless they benefit our presence in your country."

Speaker after speaker boasted of being in the U.S. illegally and assured the fearless mob that there is a human and civil right to ignore American borders and immigration and employment laws. Having escaped capture at our borders, apparently they are now all oppressed victims suffering persecution in America ... but entitled to U.S. citizenship. The defiant warning was repeated over and over again: "We will gain the right to vote and pay you back."

The organizers of the event, a mix of socialists, anarchists, local ethnic hustlers and the ACLU (but I repeat myself) appointed some of their own to work crowd control. This long-time American watched as curious American citizen observers were refused access to certain sections of public property - Georgia Capitol grounds - by these radicals. Capitol Police and State Patrol officers warned Americans to obey those orders.

In speeches, some well-known Democrats - including U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Atlanta - urged the mob on and assured them they were right and would be victorious. And that help was on the way. The rally was originally scheduled for May Day - the traditional socialist workers holiday. The Democratic legislators who are also trying to kill immigration enforcement in Georgia convinced the organizers to move it up in hopes that it would help snuff the legislation before the looming end of the legislative session.

There were no arrests by the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, charged with enforcement of our immigration laws. That might have caused a scene.

The goal of the rally was to kill HB 87.

Meanwhile, at the exact time that the fugitive would-be "new Americans" were gathered outside the Georgia Capitol, a group of about 20 agriculture business owners were being squired around the Capitol interior by a South Georgia lawmaker to offices of the senior Georgia government leadership.

Their mission was to assure continued access to taxpayer subsidized black-market labor so as to avoid use of the available federal guest worker H2A visa program that allows them to hire the legal, but more costly, farm workers who enter the U.S. lawfully under that numerically unlimited program.

The goal was to kill HB 87.

Over the last months inside the Gold Dome, during hearings on HB 87 one could see lobbyists paid by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, the ACLU, the Farm Bureau, the Georgia Agribusiness Council, the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials Inc., the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center of Georgia" ("E-Verify is bad for Asian business"), and many other far-left anti-enforcement groups obfuscate, fabricate, race-bait and misquote official statistics and "facts" to legislative committee members about immigration, federal laws, visas, and E-Verify while constantly denigrating the American worker and carefully explaining that we should continue to ignore federal law because enforcement would be "racial profiling" and the legal workers are "too expensive."

The goal was to kill HB 87.

A July 2010 Georgia Newspaper Partnership poll of Georgians showed that a large majority - 68 percent - supported an Arizona style immigration enforcement law here.

Right now, behind the scenes, it is the lieutenant governor of Georgia and the president pro tem of the Georgia Senate who are quietly standing between the people of Georgia and a Senate vote on HB 87.

For the majority of Georgia, the goal in the last full week of the legislative session should be to see HB 87 sent to Gov. Nathan Deal's desk for signature.

We should apologize to our grandfathers if we fail.

Oh, shut up, Inger (el paso watcher). We know what you're all about. And you, too, Mary (mk...).

I'll bet you all favor miscegenation laws.

hey, genius. We all know that you have no argument, but exactly what race is illegal? What comment do you have for us African-Americans who are as opposed to the illegal invasion ans Mr. King is?

Calling D A King an expert on immigration is like saying J B Stoner was an expert on racial issues.

A lot of the same people who were there live around us now. I can see Mexico from my house in Austell. We are happy to read that someone has the courage to describe the invasion for what it is. Thanks to the paper for this. I hope this bill passes!

Learn your history: the ancestors of the same people who are complaining today (mainly "wasps") about the current wave of immigrants used the same tired arguments back then against the Italians, the Irish, the Germans, the Blacks, etc, ad nauseum--they are going to ruin this country, not learn the language, not follow the laws, not assimilate--etc, etc. ad nauseum. Why keep repeating history with the same venom and hate. Stop blaming others (who are actually helping you) and look in the mirror and do for yourself. I really find it comical, yet tragic, when white people complain when we have it all served to us on a silver platter in this country. Maybe it is time we grew up and learned to share. If not we will be relegated to the crib of whining and perpetual childishness while other people and cultures, who know the real meaning of hard work, family and democratic values, faith, etc. will progress past us--which is already happening right under our noses. Let's unite with the black, brown, Asian, neighbors and learn some of their values--that is the American way and the way America progresses.

What our elected officials seem to be forgetting is that we the people elected them to do a job, and if they choose not to listen to the voters, rather than business interests and lobbyists, then we the people will see that they are not re-elected in 2012 and beyond. How quickly some of these officials seem to have forgotten Nov. 2010.

The chamber of no American commerce is a joke. They will sell their children's souls to keep cheap labor for the conventions and hotel lefist.

You so called farmers get paid to sit on your sorry butts and do nothing but receive our tax dollars. Why not grow more corn to supplement this ethenol money pit to hold down the cost of food. No you have the farm area senators (Chambliss) and reps. that you bribe so you can sit on your lazy butts and we pay u for it. You are obama's boys down on the farm and always will be. Keep it up and one day the tax payers are going to cut u off and you will struggle like the rest of us I hope. You all are not competent enough to compete in a competetive market as we have today. Farm subsides are union welfare programs. The chamber of commerce and galeo are both thieves.

To the GA GOP,

If you folks don't get off your butts and start doing the things the majority want with HB 87 then you will be O.T.D. after the next election! Our elected officials must STOP catering to the illegals and quit running like a scared puppy with their tails between their legs when some of these illegal workers threaten that Georgia will shut down without them. Well, why don't you give them a chance to prove it! I'd bet you'd see the real Georgians come out of the woodwork to pick up the slack to get the jobs done once these people are gone. Let's give them a chance to prove we were wrong, if you don't then we will never know.

The Ga senate stripped the HB 87 yesterday to a very weak bill. The senators in cahrge are working for the businesses that want to keep us out of the jobs so the illegals can work cheaper.

I know one was senator Hmabrick and another Republican even voted against it altogether with the Dems...a south Georgia senator Crosby. The Ga GOP is really being displayed with this issue.

Keep up the good work D.A. Georgians should be thankful to have a solid, rule of law, type of guy like you in the trenches. Now is the time to contact your state legislators and remind them that illegal aliens can't vote, but we can and will replace them in both primary and general elections if they fail to protect the law abiding Georgia citizens.

Rich writes: "Find another cause to put your energy into--like reducing the extremes of wealth and poverty in this nation."

What Rich the genius means is that everybody should have the same amount of stuff and we should not have borders. Oh Rich!

I went to the GALEO facebook page. This is hilarious: They have video after video of the rally and it is 90% in Spanish and you can see the signs Mr. King mentions saying we will not leave and others. These people below are lying as always. Note to illegals: GET OUT! Note to state officials: YIU TOO IF YOU WON'T HELP US! I want HB 87 to pass and governor Deal better sign it the next day!

Wake up--here is an example of the egocentric pride of the invaders at a tennis match between Roddick and Cuevas,(from the Irish Svant":

"Now here’s where the canary analogy comes in. The crowd were supporting Cuevas because he’s Hispanic. Against the white American. A powerful sense of Hispanic identity, one that's hostile to white American identity, has now taken a powerful grip in the country. And as we know from this research, and from real life experience, social capital goes out the window when a country is composed of different closely knit racial or religious groupings."

Georgia Peach, A large number of signs I saw online and in the newspaper were in Spanish. Is that the language one expects from mostly,as, you call them "legal citizens". How did you arrive at that?? Dis you ask for green cards? Drivers licenses?? I am sure you did not as that would violate the rights that YOU grant illegal immigrants.

Reagan Republican-- Your words are not the words that I would expect from a patriot. Have you forgotten your oath to protect America?? Is it void because you are retired? Did you have a religious epiphany that instructs you to give away what you once fought to protect? This is our country and not theirs. Your support of them is a slap in the face to our military.my co

Excuse me-- The video I saw certainly had more than 250 people. Admittedly , I am not good at crowd estimates, but the crowd was bigger. King did not say it was 250. He said it was 5000. Your point?? Finding any little thing, no matter how false , to push your view?

As for Pellegrino--his words are empty and are bought by the job he holds.If the illegals succeed he will learn, quickly , how little his support of them matters at that time.

Mr King, thank you for your steady attempt to educate the American public to the dangers of illegal immigration. It is my belief that if these people defeat HB 87, that those who hold office will have no fear of the American people and will continue to make their decisions based on the wishes of the Farm Bureau and the rest who profit from illegal labor.

I suspect your real handle is Georgia melocoton.

but the point is we have laws that are not being enforced and our lawmakers are more concerned with their public appearance and re-election instead of addressing the laws and doing something about it. If I was ICE, I would have staff at every rally and arrest every one I could that could not provide documentation. if they want to flaunt their law breaking, let's make sure they know we will be glad to accept their help. If serial con man came out and said he committed crimes on TV, would most police just sit back and watch?

Keep it up Mr. King! We need someone telling the truth about illegals and keep pushing this issue because it is going to be the down fall of our country. No other country in this world other than America would allow this type of thing happen within it's boarders. The things these people say and do are just blatant threats and dares for us to try and do something about it. It's as if they want to spit in our faces or punch us in the stomach knowing that we are going to just stand there and take it. They chant, "Nana, nana, nana I'm here illegally and you can't do anything about it. Nana, nana, nana I'm here illegally and you can't live without me!" I'm freaking sick of it...
