Land Of The Legal Immigrants: Illegal Immigration Protestors Swarm Boston’s Beacon Hill

Screen Shot 2014-07-27 at 8.59.09 AMEditor’s Note: Allowing Central Americans to just walk across the border and stay is completely unfair to legal immigrants. Some people had to go through the whole process, while illegal immigrants, who are technically criminals just for being here illegally, are free to stay.

An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters.

While Bree Sison of CBS Boston estimated that the gathering drew hundreds of people, Jeff Kuhner, the host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report, who organized the rally, put the number closer to 10,000 people.

People carrying signs that said “Deport illegals,” and “Americans before illegals” stood just outside the State House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Kuhner told Boston.com that he himself is a legal immigrant.

Kuhner came to the United States in the 1990s on a work visa as he worked towards a Ph. D. Still a Canadian citizen, he was issued a green card in 2006. Kuhner said he is currently in the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.
