Advocacy Group Harasses Senator Stepp at HOME

Breaking News, these guys are out of control. All the more reason why this legislation must me stopped.



Stepp Will Pursue Charges

Leaders of a Hispanic activist group known as Voces de la Frontera believe that in America, it is better to storm the home of an elected official and yell in their windows after dark to intimidate someone rather than to run for office to change policy. On the evening of Friday, December 16th, a group of people advocating the issuing of drivers’ licenses to non-citizens appeared outside my windows yelling and attempting to intimidate me to vote against Assembly Bill 69. Law enforcement was notified and the group disbanded. This group justifies their actions by claiming they have not had their phone call returned when in reality all constituent calls are returned until callers become belligerent or profane.

This group doesn’t care that the rights of citizens in Wisconsin would be taken away by the federal government when their licenses are turned down as adequate proof of i.d. everywhere else in the country unless Wisconsin changes their license requirements. Right now, Wisconsin is one of the only states dangling the carrot of a driver’s license to anyone who will break into our country illegally.

Opponents of the bill, like the leadership of Voces de la Frontera, threaten that if they don’t get their way illegal aliens will respond by driving without a license anyway. If the legislature responds to threats like this, should we then issue pilots’ licenses to illegal aliens who threaten that they’ll fly a plane without one? They also argue that the bill will punish Hispanics more than it will deter Middle Eastern terrorists, even though the requirements will be the same for everyone—whether they’re from Mexico, England or Syria.

I have been fortunate to be welcomed into our Hispanic community since taking office. Many Hispanic Community Leaders have educated me and garnered my support on issues uniquely affecting them. I am thankful for their guidance and it has been a privilege to work with and on behalf of them. However, driver’s licenses are privileges for people who obey the law. Anyone here illegally is, by definition, not obeying the law. Like it or not, the driver’s license has become a person’s ticket to legitimacy in America.

When I took the oath of office, I swore to uphold the laws of our state and our country. I will side with the legal citizens and taxpayers of Wisconsin with my vote of support for the bill.

Good for Sen. Stepp. Thugs are thugs.

Finally I know what bill to advocate for (shame on me for not paying closer attention).

Thanks Steve, I'm angry over this.

Be prepared! The more rights you give them, the more you give in, the more brazen they will become. In California, when you ask one of the illegals (or even some legals) why they don't learn English, they slap you in the face with, "This was our country before it was yours, so I don't have to."

Good luck. Of course, all the regular bleeding hearts will be on their so-called "underprivileged" side, and never realize how, by allowing the laws of the country to be broken without the consent of the voter, all will become chaos. This is only the beginning.

And I can guarantee, as more laws get broken (and they are broken all the time here in California in all sorts of ways, big and little) your and my civil rights will become more and more constricted. When you have that many people breaking the laws and even threatening politicians in an organized group, there is no doubt in my mind that you and I will be paying for it---with even martial law down the road somewhere.

Don't kid yourself that it can't happen here. When it all becomes chaotic enough IT WILL HAPPEN HERE.

It will be interesting to see what the Racine County DA does in terms of the charges Sen. Stepp is filing against these thugs.

Guess what story doesn't appear in the Sunday Journal Sentinel?

realdebate said...

Nor the Racine Journal Times... just checked.

Golly; you think it might have made the paintcatchers mislabeled newspapers had it been a bunch of Minutemen marching on Pedro Colon's house for opposing AB69? Hell, I'll wager that it would be the banner front-page story.

Hi RoseIndigo! I just want to let you know how much I like your posts. You're really in touch with the way things are going with the illegals. It's out of control. It has been out of control for several years. Its sad that most citizens actually have to have something or someone extremely injured by this immigration before they are willing to face facts and call it what it is. That PC stuff has been drilled into so many citizens that there isn't much left upstairs besides robotic acceptance of all the PC rules.

Reminds me of a phrase in an old song: "No More Mr. Nice Guy". (We have to get tough with them before it is too late.)

Steve, that would be national.

Peter said...

Steve,
The leftists will tell you there is no media bias, that it's all in our imagination. Other than the blogosphere, this story is being ignored. Why? Because it doesn't fit their template.

They're just following the example of Baghdad Bob :-)

I think See BS News should consider Baghdad Bob as a permanent replacement for Dan Rather, keeps them consistent in terms of a credible newscast.
