Valentines Day – NYC – 2017. A coalition led by nyic declared that Feb 14 was a “Day to come together… in love…. We’ve got each others backs. If we fight with love, we will win.”
A Love-Fest co-ordinated by those LOVING anti-Trump, anti-America Leftists.
THEIR goals – an America with no borders, no immigration laws should frighten all Americans. (BUT, it doesn’t.)

[BTW- sitting on the nyice board– of course – CAIR ‘s own Linda Sarsour, Director Arab-American Association of New York]
As I stood there – surrounded by the couple 100 or so “robots”- swarming the staging area – I wondered, “Would they love me?” Do they, “Love all their neighbors? Or just illegals?”
For moi, anonymity seemed the better course at this time.
Pressed elbow to elbow with SEIU (commies) Working Families Party (Commies), MinKwon (commies), CAIR (FASCISTS) and the many others named in their thank you list and read off at the beginning of this short, VERY short presser. ( video)
We stand united against all efforts to tear immigrant communities apart.

Destroying Trump’s America. Yeah. That’s the ticket. So, Let the party begin! (and it did) . See short Flickr slide show:
” a series of speakers voiced their discontent over the ban that blocks entry for all refugees from Syria indefinitely, halts refugees from other countries for 120 days and restricts travel from six additional majority Muslim countries.”
Video – Gale Brewer . President of the New York City Borough of Manhattan.
“We are a city and country of immigrants,” said Rama Issa-Ibrahim, a lead adviser to the NYC Commission on Human Rights, and herself a Syrian immigrant, “We will not stop fighting for everyone’s rights.”
Video- Francis Madi, a Venezuelan Immigrant on her own story
Video – Brandon (Madi?) gives the crowd a pep-talk
Video – Jung Rae Jang of MinKwon
After the speakers came music and chanting lead by the Rude Mechanical Orchestra AND then – finally- the media noticed these stalwart patriots from NYICE – defending America’s borders and Laws.
“On this Valentine’s Day, we call on New Yorkers to come together to love and protect one another, and stand up for immigrant communities!
Join The New York Immigration Coalition to show your love for and solidarity with our immigrant communities who are under attack.
Our New York is inclusive and we will do everything in our power to fight back against deportations, walls, and bans.”
(They even sent a Valentine to Putin) Spread the LOVE!
“As WE SAY:
-NO to ICE raids and enforcement
-NO to the Muslim and Refugee Ban
-NO to the building of a wall”
i.e. —LAWS? We don’t need no stinkin’ laws.
