Good to see the TEA party of the right side of this.
Check it out:
A group of conservative organizations are headed to Richmond, VA, on Monday evening to protest the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill and ongoing House GOP leadership efforts to try to produce a similar legislative solution.
The event, being put on by NumbersUSA, Tea Party Patriots, Eagle Forum, and The Remembrance Project, is the first stop of a “Stop Amnesty Tour” the groups are leading across the country. Speakers at the event include Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) National Council president Chris Crane, NumbersUSA executive director Roy Beck, Remembrance Project director Maria Espinoza, Progressives for Immigration Reform executive director Leah Durant (who led the March For Jobs against amnesty in Washington, D.C., last month), and many other leaders in this battle.
The event starts at 6 p.m. on Monday in Richmond’s Jefferson Park. Technically, the event is actually located in the district of Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA), but organizers say Richmond was really chosen because it is the political base of House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA). Cantor’s district is minutes away from Jefferson Park. It also is a couple-hour-long drive from the district of House Judiciary Committee chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).
