Exposing lies from anti-immigrant fanatic Elise Marciano is TOO easy

Samples of some of the signs held by members of the Untied States Citizens for Immigration and Law Enforcement at their so-called "rally" against health care reform in front of Congressman Chris Murphy's office on Main Street.

There she goes lying again.

A few weeks ago, I attended a co-called health care protest in front of Congressman Chris Murphy's office on Main Street, which was organized by a group that calls themselves the United States Citizens for Immigration and Law Enforcement (USCFILE).

For those who don't know, USCFILE is a local anti-immigrant, extremist, hate group that has a long history of spreading lies and misinformation regarding the issue of immigration in the Greater Danbury area. Although I'll write in more detail about the history of this organization, and it's political ties in Danbury, I want to take a moment and respond to a comment made about yours truly from the president of this hate group, Elise Marciano.

Equally as troubling as the USCFILE's track record of spreading misinformation and lies, is their long history of intimidation, taunts, and threats towards members of immigrant community and their supporters.

…and during their "rally" a couple of weekends ago, I became their latest target.

Although I won't go into the explicit details of the threat as this is now a police matter, I do want to shed light on comments made from the leader of this band of misfits and expose her lying ways.

When questioned by the News-Times about the incident, here's what Marcaino had to say.

It's purely made up. Most people don't even know what he drives and didn't even know he was there. This was made up by Al Robinson because he is trying to discredit us.

As you'll see, when it comes to discrediting her organization, Marciano does a good job at doing just that all on her own.

Here's a picture I took of ALL THE MEMBERS of Marciano's group who attended the protest.


As you can see, in order for me to take that photo, I needed to be positioned directly across the street from their event.

Now, here's an interactive Google Map that shows the location of USCFILE's rally. If you click on hold on the image, you can turn the map around and see see where I was positioned with my cameras (right in front of the dollar store).

Since Marciano and her goon squad know that I'm not their biggest fan, and that I'm positioned RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from their rally, this photo sort of pokes a hole in Marciano's claim that "most people…didn't even know he was there."

Wait, wait, it gets better.

When it comes to blogging, I'm known for my video work telling my story…and when it comes to lies from Marciano and her ilk, lets just say that I'll get my footage do the talking…

Hmm..lets see. Members of USCFILE giving me the thumbs up, requesting that I videotape their lovely signs, looking directly in the direction of my camera, and, in the case of Marciano, waving at me.

Yet, Marciano said this...


When it comes to Marciano being nothing more than a discredited serial liar, I think I proved my point.

...to be continued.

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.
