GALEO TRANSPORT OF ILLEGAL ALIENS? – *THAT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW:
In March of 2010, GALEO joined with other illegal alien advocacy groups and organized bus transportation for 2,200 people – including many self-described illegal aliens – from Atlanta to Washington DC for a larger protest march against immigration enforcement. The demand then and now was for an end to immigration enforcement and a repeat of the 1986 amnesty. A revealing Atlanta TV station news video of the stated agenda of the trip as the busses were being boarded for departure can be seen here – including an interview with Jerry Gonzalez, GALEO’s only Executive Director since it’s incorporation in 2003. By then, Dax Lopez had been on the GALEO board for six years.
“In March 2010, GALEO was one of three groups that organized travel to the historic March on DC for immigration reform. Over 2,200 people from Georgia joined over 200,000 people in Washington D.C. urging for immigration reform.”
