Bostonians Protest Outside State Capitol Against Housing Illegal Immigrants in Massachusetts

Breitbart -- July 27, 2014   
    Boston.com reports that estimates vary from hundreds to thousands of people who attended an anti-immigration rally in Boston outside the State House on Beacon Hill on Saturday.
    CBS Boston estimated the number of protesters in the hundreds, but Jeff Kuhner, the organizer of the rally, estimated the number at roughly 10,000 people. Signs with messages such as “Deport illegals” and “Americans before illegals” were carried by protesters who appeared between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
    Kuhner, interviewed by Boston.com, said that he had emigrated legally from Canada in the 1990s on a work visa so he could complete his PhD. Kuhner obtained a green card in 2006 and is working on becoming a naturalized citizen. He commented about Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision for the state to offer shelter to unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants: “I’ve never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite.”
ABP Note: To those upset with the above "cartoon"- it is a takeoff of Art Torres' comments about California Proposition 187 - it was the "last gasp of white America in California."

A major border security project involving the deployment of 50 surveillance towers across southern Arizona is temporarily on hold, following a protest by Raytheon that the government improperly awarded the work to a rival. -- In a protest decision released Thursday afternoon, the Government Accountability Office ruled the Department of Homeland Security should reevaluate the competitors' proposals. Among other things, it is possible Raytheon was "prejudiced by the agency's errors" during an evaluation of proposals, the ruling stated.......
