As amnesty opponents continue to protest in Murrieta, Calif., buses carrying illegal immigrants destined to be dropped off in the community have been forced to reroute three times since July 1. While these demonstrators have received enthusiastic support from Americans who believe in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws, amnesty advocates are fighting back.
According to a letter recently sent to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, one Latino group is demanding an investigation into protest organizers and supporters.
The Tequila Party, established as a direct response to the conservative Tea Party movement, cited a number of individuals specifically as recommended targets of a federal inquiry.
Breitbart reports that a number of pro-amnesty activists and attorneys signed the letter, which called the Murrieta protesters “homeland domestic terrorists” who “were obstructing federal law enforcement from performing their jobs and terrorizing small refugee immigrant children from Central America with racial slurs.”
Murrieta Mayor Alan Long, who initially called locals to action when he heard that busloads of illegals were headed for his town, is among those named in the letter. Additional targets include City Councilwoman Diana Serafin, two Border Patrol agents, the Murrieta Police Department, and two protesters.
Dee Dee Garcia Blase, one activist who signed the demanding letter, spoke to Breitbart regarding her motivation to see these Americans investigated.
She alleged that the protesters might have “engaged in potential criminal conspiracy to violate federal and state laws,” adding she hopes to find out exactly who is behind the protests.
According to her statement, Blase wants the “DOJ and the FBI to determine who made the decision to block the bus since Mayor Alan Long admitted several protesters were from out of town – allegedly from FAIR or Numbers USA.”
Despite the opposition, there seems to be little evidence that the Murrieta protests are dying down. As Western Journalism reported, new demonstrators are joining the continuing effort.
Organizers conclude that their mission remains to keep a watchful eye on Border Patrol activity, which they say will likely include new shipments of illegals to the city if and when protesters disband.
