As we noted the other day, it's heating up.

This was the scene on the grounds of Herndon Middle School, the evening of February 8, 2006. Most of these folks appeared to have arrived on a bus.


The latest skirmish is drawing national attention:

Taxpayer Funded Casa De Maryland Threatens Children of Minutemen

(PHOENIX, AZ) February 23, 2006 – Casa de Maryland, a taxpayer funded organization that caters to illegal aliens, has threatened to target the children of Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (“MCDC”) volunteers who peacefully and lawfully exercise their civil rights by seeking the enforcement of laws regarding employment, illegal immigration and border security.

Gustavo Torres, Executive Director of Casa de Maryland, in an article by the Gazette published February 22, 2006 and posted on the Casa de Maryland website, is quoted saying of the Minutemen:

“We are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work.”


Among other ugly things, this statement raises the specter of Casa de Maryland spying on the children of Minutemen at their homes and stalking them to determine where they go to school.

Casa de Maryland is not sitting still in any sense.

The organization Casa de Maryland, which receives a portion of its funding from taxpayer dollars, has announced that it will fight back against the anti-illegal immigrant group the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, which has been filming and photographing day-laborers locally to discourage the use of illegal immigrants as workers. "We are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work," said Gustavo Torres, Executive Director of Casa de Maryland.
How do you feel about this?
-- Turn-about is fair play. If the Minutemen can do it, Casa can, too.
-- I'm outraged by Casa making this threat, especially when they get taxpayer funds.

Gustavo Torres is just another arrogant, Mexican thug who has carved a nice little job for himself by making a career out of aiding/abetting/harboring/hiring illegal aliens. He's also a "minion" of La Raza. He and others like them in his little world, are now afraid of losing their jobs and their funding. Why if immigraiton laws would be enforced like they are supposed to be, Mr. Torres would no longer have a job. Perhaps he then would have to find legitimate employment that doesn't involve aiding/abetting criminals. He'd have to find a job that doesn't involve taxpayer funding for CASA's illegal activities such as day labor centers for illegal immigrants. Everyone here should call Montgomery County, MD County Executives and protest the funding of this organization and individual whose primary mission is to conduct illegal activity in violation of federal immigration laws.

It's going to take a grassroots effort to get that message out because the news media sure aren't doing it. Thanks for the comment.
