NEW YORK (AP) — Hundreds of immigration activists have protested at the federal building in lower Manhattan to demand immigration reform.

The protesters circled 26 Federal Plaza on Saturday while chanting and carrying signs.

Steve Choi of the New York Immigration Coalition said activists are tired of waiting for Congress to act.

Protester Ali Najmi said deportations are breaking up families and children are losing their parents.

Also on Saturday House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi visited the U.S.-Mexico border and said she holds little hope that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year.

Pelosi visited a Border Patrol facility in Brownsville, Texas where unaccompanied children are being held.

More than 52,000 unaccompanied children, most from Central America, have been apprehended entering the U.S. illegally since October.

    Nobody is saying that Africans in Africa will ever be a minority
    Nobody is saying that Asians in Asia will ever be a minority.
    So why are they saying Whites will be a minority in Britain in 2036?
    And Sweden in 2024?
    That’s because there’s MASSIVE non-White immigration in EVERY White country and ONLY White countries.
    Because there’s a program of White geNOcide.
    They say it’s “anti-racist” but it’s simply anti-White.
    Anti-Racist is a code for anti-White

    They come to America searching for freedom than want to change it. Congress should not change a thing. They wanted to come to this country, let them but by the rules. If not go back to their own country. I’m fed up with new Immigrants not wanting what this country is/was based on to change to suit their beliefs. Screw em, you come to America – adapt or go go back. I grew up where having a flag was flying on your property was not a crime. Is it okay to say in the Pledge of Alligence, “One nation under God” is it even said every morning in school? And these are the same people that are applying for citizenship. Send them back.

    They say that we are breaking up families but more than 52,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended entering the U.S. illegally since October.
    So they are the ones breaking up families.

    Naturalization Act of 1790 : That any alien, being a free WHITE person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States , for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof….

    The Preamble to the US Constitution says: “for ourselves and OUR Posterity”.

    If Asians founded a country, and then said “We claim this land for ourselves and our Posterity”, they’re not talking about Mexicans, or Africans, or Europeans; they’re talking about Asians.

    Quote us where in the US constitution it says “We are a melting pot.”

    Creating a brown mixture of this and that in ALL & ONLY White countries is genocide.
