Illegal aliens: We know where you live, Gringo
Immigrant group to picket watchdogs

A taxpayer-funded immigrant advocacy group says it will picket and keep a close watch on the homes and businesses of members of a local illegal-entry watchdog group that monitors day-laborer sites in Maryland.

"People should not expect in a modern society [Ed. - aka "progressive" open-border] to engage in a campaign of intimidation [Ed. - aka documenting criminal activity] without having a response," says Kim Propeack, a spokeswoman for CASA of Maryland, which runs taxpayer-funded day-laborer centers in Takoma Park, Silver Spring and Wheaton.

"So if [the Maryland Minuteman Civil Defense Corps] want to come to CASA de Maryland, it's perfectly legitimate of us to go to the Minutemen's homes and also protest."

Miss Propeack's comments follow those of CASA Executive Director Gustavo Torres, who was quoted in a published report this week as saying his group will target the Minutemen in a "specific way," in addition to videotaping them as they monitor day laborers.

"We are going to picket their houses, and the schools of their kids, and go to their work," Mr. Torres told the Gazette community newspapers. "If they are going to do this to us, we are going to respond in the same way, to let people know their neighbors are extremists, that they are anti-immigrant. They are going to hear from us..."
