The Dustin Inman Society joins in the National Protest Day January 7, 2005

Because D.A. King had to be out of town for a speaking engagement, Billy and Kathy Inman – Dustin’s parents – and other members and friends of The Dustin Inman Society, including Georgians for Immigration Reduction [GIR], organized our [planned at the last minute]effort to support the National Day of Protest against illegal immigration and the criminal employment of illegal labor on a corner here in Marietta, directly in front of one of the largest black market labor pick-up sites in the area.

The SE corner of Powder Springs and Sandtown Roads, Marietta, Georgia.

Our group totaled about 20 Americans waving signs and banners demanding that existing laws be enforced and our borders be secured on a very cold North Georgia morning. We received good news coverage, including repeating all -day, top of the hour radio taped reporting from the Atlanta metro area’s largest radio station [ thank you WSB radio! ]

The local Fox TV affiliate spent considerable time taping our event. While that station did run a segment on its 6:00 news Saturday, we are all puzzled as to why the editors chose to present a short shot that showed only 4 of the 20 fed -up Americans who were present to the viewer.

The 6th largest newspaper in the nation, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, did not cover our protest – again – despite having been sent a press release. [ Note from D.A; … the AJC supports amnesty and is very clear on their agenda of support for illegal aliens in the U.S and Georgia.]

Our group of Americans was shouted at and demeaned by what were likely illegal aliens and their supporters – counter protesters who seemed upset and displayed that ever dependable standby symbol of illegal immigration and open borders… a very large Mexican flag.

A local Spanish language radio station “QUE BUENA” sent a crew out well after our start time to incite the permit lacking illegal alien-supporting demonstrators across the street. To them, we send a hearty VIVA LA MIGRA! – VIVA REPATRIATION!

Marietta police on the scene found it necessaryto intervene several times with the un-American illegal alien supporting counter protesters.Thanks to MPD!

In short, while we had excellent response from passers by [several stopped and joined our group] the illegal aliens were pretty much business as usual in their lack of respect for American law and Americans who demand that it be enforced.

We are happy to report; There was a very definite and noticeable drop in the number of criminal contractors picking up illegal alien labor!! A great success! We will be back soon!

Thanks to all who took time out of their Saturday on last minute notice to make their voices heard. More of the same very soon!

Below is another account from J.R. of GIR on the day’s activity.

Yesterday┬╣s protest demonstration was a success. You may have seen us on Fox
5 news or heard about it on WSB radio. About 15 people were there, although
I think the TV news clip made it look like a smaller number.

When we arrived at 9:45, there were guys all over the strip mall parking
lot, standing around and apparently waiting for employers to pick them up.
When they saw what we were doing, most of them left for other locations.
About an hour later, there were only a few still left there.

Although a few motorists flipped us off, lots of people gave us the
thumbs-up sign or honked. I was surprised by the number of people who came
up to us and asked about our groups, wanting contact information.

After about an hour, a couple of guys who had left the parking lot behind us
decided to set up their own counter-protest across the street. One of them
held up a sign which said, ┬│A day without Mexicans…your life is worthless┬▓
or something very close to that. Some more people joined the pro-illegal
demonstration, and a some of them brought a large Mexican flag and held it
up. We figured that was good publicity for our side: people holding up the
flag of Mexico and telling us that they were moving in and taking over!
Shortly thereafter, the Spanish-language radio station Que Buena sent 2 vans
to join the illegals in their protest, and we figured that the radio station
was calling for recruits, since more people kept arriving.
