SOS to Exploit Racial Tensions in L.A.

by Next Move Wednesday, Jul. 13, 2005 at 10:15 PM

The following was posted on the SOS website and was written by SOS founder, Joe Turner.

Hello Patriots:

Since founding Save Our State, I have often spoke of my desire to expand the tent and to work with other demographics with respect to the battle against the illegal alien invasion. Time and again I have expressed my desire to work with the black community.

I believe that the third world invasion of illegal aliens is having a catastrophic impact on the black community.

Recently, Najee Ali of Islamic H.O.P.E expressed interest in working with Save Our State on the illegal immigration issue. I spoke with Mr. Ali this weekend and he subsequently put me in touch with Earl Hutchinson who is active in Los Angeles and who hosts the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable.

The Roundtable is a non-partisan entity that holds regular meetings to discuss important issues in their community. Obviously, illegal immigration is becoming more and more an issue as time passes. Mr. Hutchinson has invited me to speak at the Roundtable on August 20th.

He explained to me that he has received tremendous feedback from residents who are angry with illegal immigration and suggested that we will be warmly received by many in the community and at the roundtable.

This is a tremendous opportunity for Save Our State and the entire anti-illegal immigration movement. To my knowledge, we will be the first such organization to ever step foot in the South Central/South Los Angeles area. I am very thankful for this opportunity and believe that with respect to illegal immigration that we will find common ground.

With respect to activism, Save Our State stands to learn a great deal from the black community and I believe the black community stands to learn a great deal from Save Our State.

I sincerely believe that when the history books are written, that this Roundtable will serve as a watershed event with respect to our movement. Furthermore, assuming that our organization is able to partner with the black community on this issue, I believe it will send shockwaves through out the political structures at the state and federal level...shockwaves that will reverberate with debilitating impact upon our opposition in the open borders lobby.

More than any other protest or rally, I call upon each and everyone of you to support Save Our State and myself on August 20th. Your attendance will further communicate and reinforce our statements expressing a desire to work with the black community. Although we have members of all races/colors, the bulk of our membership (like just about every other anti-illegal immigration organization) is white. The presence of many whites from Save Our State who live outside their community would send a resounding message and result in an unquantifiably positive impact on this movement and our organization.
