HatCityBLOG accepts anti-immigrant organization challenge...and rips them to shreds

Since the start of my site, I've been criticized by politicians and anti-immigrant radicals who say I offer nothing but biased reporting.

Case in point, while claiming that they're only against illegal-immigration in interviews to the press, the anti-immigrant xenophobes in Danbury show their true colors and have attacked ALL immigrants during their various forums, meetings, and rallies.

The Vice President of Elise Marciano's the United States for Immigration Enforcement, John McGowan, has been highly critical of my coverage of his rants and during the organization's forum held at Western Connecticut State Univeristy, he challenge to me to factually report on the group's "well attended" anti-immigration event.

The following videoclip is my reply...

Lets recap:
1. Marciano's Vice President issued a challenge:

2. Members of Marciano's group as well as members of other anti-immgrant organizations are in attendance.

3. A member of Marciano's group (and a World War II vet) suggest following the Hitler's model and round up immigrants and place them into concentration camps.

4. The audience applaud in agreement.

5. This comment is not picked up in the News-Times write up on the event BUT is picked up on my site and BACKED UP with video of the moron making the statement, followed with the audience applauding in agreement.

nuff said.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
