ORIGINAL POST, JUNE 26, 7:06 A.M.: Spearheaded by a Korean-American group, immigration reform advocates will demonstrate outside U.S. Rep. Ed Royce's Brea office Friday morning to urge the veteran Republican congressman to get himself and House mates to move on the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 passed in the Senate. The activists say they have good reason to literally take this to Royce's doorstep.

"Rep. Ed Royce earned the lowest score on the AAPI and Latino 2014 National Immigration Preliminary Score Cards for not listening to the community," reads an advisory from the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium. "Now is the chance for Royce to improve his grade with the immigrant communities by publicly urging House leadership to bring immigration reform to the floor for vote now."

The non-profit group, which promotes the full participation of Korean Americans in major social justice issues, will be joined Friday by members of Mi Familia Vota, Organizing for Action, Anaheim-based Orange County Congregation Community Organization and the SEIU USWW union.

Each claims one year is too long for the House not to have taken action on the immigration bill passed in the Senate.

"Every day the House does not act on immigration reform, families are being separated," reads the advisory. "A shift in House leadership does not change the need of our community."

The demonstration begins at 11:40 a.m. Friday in front of Royce's office at 210 W. Birch St., Brea.

UPDATE NO. 1, JUNE 26, 5:08 P.M.: A coalition of Latino, Asian American and Pacific Islander immigration reform advocates say a planned rally outside Rep. Ed Royce's Brea office Friday morning has grown larger--and noisier.

More than 300 people with signs, banners and noisemakers are expected to mark the one-year anniversary of the U.S. Senate's passage of bi-partisan immigration reform legislation that House Republican leaders have refused to put up for a vote.

"With Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and Latinos accounting for 28.5 percent and 32.6 percent of the population respectively, the 39th Congressional District, represented by Congressman Ed Royce, is a prime example of how failing to act on immigration reform puts local and national Republicans' electoral future in serious jeopardy," say organizers.

An 11:45 a.m. news conference is planned before the noon rally at 210 W. Birch St., Brea.

"Stop separating"?  Stop coming here illegally and there will be no separation.

The arrests were staged as part of their silly dog and pony show. The activists wasted their time because they will not get what they want.

In my opinion the problem is not illegal immigration it is illegal employers. If there were no jobs for cheap, easily exploited, hard working, un-complaining workers. or complexes that prey on them there would be no illegals. 

And just for the record Not all Illegal Immigrants are Mexicans, A good many come from Asian Countries to include the good friends Communist China, & Communist Vietnam, From Africa, The Caribbean, South America, Europe, to include Russia, Romania, & Great Britain. as well as the Middle East and Yes Canada

This "Korean" group is another George Soros communist front sham organization. Koreans know the the difference - others may not.

In the old days when we still arrested and deported illegal aliens, the protesters would have been checked for their status.  Those here illegally would have been hooked, booked and sent back from whence they came.  Now, with the Obama Administration enforcing only those laws they see fit,  the illegal aliens are allowed to break more laws and still get a free pass.  No wonder Lady Justice wears a blindfold?

Everyone knows by now that third-world immigration and forced integration is required of every White country and only White countries. Did you know that the United Nations defines this as genocide? Many who say they are anti-racist are really just anti-White. Diversity is just a code word for White genocide.

So, if they can break the law they didn't like. We can break the law we don't like. We learned it from watching them. Okay?

And I find it hilariously hypocritical for illegal aliens to be demanding that the country follow one law (the law that that suits them) while insisting for years and years on end, that nobody needed to follow that other law that existed before the law passed last year. SORRY: YOU DON'T GET YOUR WAY ALL THE TIME.

It sets a terrible example when we reward people for breaking our laws. It does not matter which country they have illegally come here from.

Flooding ALL White countries and ONLY White countries with non-White immigration combined with forced integration is a program of White genocide.

Africa will still be full of Africans
Asia will still be full of Asians.
Only White children will suffer from this.

Read the UN genocide conventions: It is genocide.

They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.
Anti-racist is a code wordfor anti-White

When you willingly break the law you dramatically increase the probability that you and your family will be separated. STOP BREAKING THE LAW.

Ed Royce is a champion for order. As a ethnic Mexican family of Americans our migration story is one of following the rules. Separate families? Well, yeah, that's the rules. The only blame should fall on those folks foolish enough to take a risk to come here illegally.

Ed Royce is a corrupt whore and a racist. He sends out anti-asian mailers, and is in the pocket of the banks. Let's send this racist pig home. Vote in November.

As a korean-american know this Ed Royce. I voted for you 2x and you will not get another vote from me and be out of a job if you vote for any kind of "reform" these illegals are seeking. Sending them back to Korea, Mexico or whereever they came from is the only "reform" needed. Believe that.

@Dweezle I agree there need to be employer sanctions, but that is not the ONLY reason they come.  Anchor babies, and the benefits provided to them are also a large factor in illegal immigration.  And most people know not all illegals are from Mexico.  However, about 60% are from Mexico and 70+% are from south or central America.  92% of English learners in K-12 grades in California are Spanish-speaking.

@ltpar According to politifact.com published by the Tampa Bay Times Aug 7, 2012 in 8 years Bush sent 2 million illegals home and Obama sent 1.4 million, However that was adding apples & oranges meaning 8 years compared to 4 years so they broke it down to daily averages puts it 20,964 for Bush & 32,886 for Obama. Also according to the New Republic, Apr 17, 2014, Obama in 4 years more than doubled the rate of Removals compared to Returns. The difference is Removals have a record of removal & it is a felony to return where what Bush did was gather them up put em on a bus and send them back with no records... to return the next day. I am no longer an Obama supporter, But the truth is the truth.

@NoAzatlan well I believe it is because it is illegal for an employer to hire illegals, There is a $5000 fine per illegal per offense, but of course a Republican will never push actions that will hurt their financial base Businesses love cheap, easily exploitable, hard working, uncomplaining workers. By uncomplaining I mean afraid to complain to the labor board when they are robbed. 

Another reason is employers looking at significant fines, argue E-verify does not work... Isn't it peculiar the ACA website can be repaired in a month or two, but e-verify has not been fixed in what 10 years??? I wonder why?

@realitycheck Obama could give a rats ass about breaking the law.  What he and his gang see are future Democrat voters.  We have met the enemy and sadly the enemy is us.

@roger.usarmy Seal the border first and then proceed with top to bottom immigration reform.  No amnasty under any conditions.

@roger.usarmy Wrong - if you are deported back to your home country you still have many chances to live a decent and productive life. The United States does not owe foreign nationals a home with a two-car garage surrounded by a white picket fence.

@Dweezle @ltpar Most conservatives weren't happy with Bush's stance on illegal immigration, thus the TEA Party.

@Dweezle @NoAzatlan Yeh, ALL businesses are run by republicans..smh.  I don't see ANY democrats calling for a stop for illegal immigration.  THey are ALL for amnesty.  Anyone stating disagreement with amnesty is immediately labeled a racist and/or xenophobe.

@gregbpc @Dweezle @ltpar But the fact still remains ltpar statement was not true.

The numbers I provided prove it. Where was the almighty tea party when their hero Ronald Reagan gave amnesty to illegals? Many of them like the draft dodger Dana Rohrabacher and I am not sure but perhaps Royce were on Reagans staff.

@rafi1971 @meheecan-cris-doner I am curious rafi, how do you know meheecan is an illegal? From the comments he/she made? or because he/she had the intestinal fortitude to disagree with you?

gregbpc
gregbpc topcommenter

@Dweezle @gregbpc @ltpar They gave amnesty as a one-time deal, with fines and administrative fees, and waiting periods, to an estimated 1.5 million (turns out it was more like 3 million).  The dems were pushing hard for this, so a deal was made.  Stricter enforcement has  not followed (as it was supposed to).  I hear way more cries from the left for amnesty.  Witness, anyone against amnesty is immediately labeled a racist and/or xenophobe by the left.  While many republicans have also been soft on illegal immigration, the only demands for stricter immigration policies are coming from republicans/tea party members.
