On Saturday, members of the Kansas nonprofit, Sunflower Community Action, marched in an immigration protest on the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
Immigration protesters marched on the home of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach on Saturday, leaving behind a pile of shoes “of the fathers he’s deported.”
Kansas nonprofit Sunflower Community Action said it had 300 activists in front of Kobach’s home, whom they branded the “King of Hate” on Twitter. Kobach was an architect of Arizona’s tough immigration law.
On radio this morning, Glenn expressed fear that the immigration bill will result in granting amnesty to people who do not truly appreciate America and the principles that have made it great.
“When the illegals and their supporters are so brazen that they're showing up at the home, at his home of the Secretary of State of Kansas, Kris Kobach, and demanding certain things and leaving deported men's shoes at his doorstep and making these chants. I mean, you know that they just don't appreciate,” Pat said.
The protestors stood outside Kobach’s home shouting, “Si se puede! Si se puede!” while other members of the group chanted about acceptance and love:
We can stand with Kansas people because Kansan people, once family, once family. We want love, and we're showing it right now.
“They are showing love, standing outside this man's house on Father's Day with his children in the house scaring and terrorizing this entire family,” Glenn said disgusted. “They didn't come to visit him. They came to terrorize him and his family.”
Glenn was particularly interested in the group responsible for this protest – Sunflower Community Action – and some preliminary research reveals strong ideological ties.
“I said, who the hell is the Sunflower Community Action Center,” Glenn asked. “Here are these illegals that are so oppressed, but they can schedule to have three buses take them, they can organize this, they can have all of the bullhorns and everything else, they can have T‑shirts printed. I mean, I know 9/12 project, they can't afford to have the T‑shirts printed. They can’t afford the buses. Where are they getting this money? Where are they getting this money?”
“So here's what we have found so far,” he continued. “2006 the Sunflower Community Action Project from Wichita, Kansas was given $100,000 from the Ford Foundation for advancing economic and social justice. The Ford Foundation gave another grant of $250,000 in 2009. Here's a $30,000 grant towards the Sunflower Community Action and Students United to pursue educational justice goals and that one is fighting to keep Kansas' in‑state tuition law and adequate funding for public schools. Needmor Foundation gave them money, teaches people how to work together. The Community Council Foundation also gave them $10,000 to support the multiracial group Organizing for Economic Empowerment and Immigrant Rights.”
This Wednesday in Washington D.C., members of the ‘Gang of 70’ House Republicans will be hosting an open forum that will feature “border security, anti-amnesty members of Congress.” The debate is slated for 9AM to 12PM and then again from 2PM to 5PM. In between, members of Congress will join with an already-planned Tea Party rally against the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative organizations. Glenn will be joining the event and speaking at noon.
“I am going on Wednesday and I ask you, if you can make it on Wednesday, do, to Washington, D.C.,” Glenn said. “I don't know how many people will be there. It's impossible. I think I'm speaking around noon, but I mean, it's impossible. It's in the middle of the week. People I think are tired, they feel like there's no difference they can make, but it does make a difference.”
