Amnesty Advocates Co-Opt Selma 'Bloody Sunday' Rally

"This is our Selma and we will walk, we will march, we will be arrested, we will do anything and everything it takes to make sure families are protected in this nation," Gutierrez recently said. The sound you're hearing is Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., rolling over in his grave.

(Breitbart) Pro-amnesty advocates will try to co-opt Sunday’s commemoration of the "Bloody Sunday" march in Selma–one of the most seminal moments in the civil rights movement and the history of the country–to again push the false narrative that amnesty for illegal immigrants is the new civil rights movement.

The Alabama Coalition for Immigration Justice is mobilizing and will bus amnesty advocates for the march, which will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the seminal march for voting rights for black American citizens. According to, the group reportedly declared that, “throughout the weekend, immigrants will stand with thousands of others converging in Selma at this historic moment to affirm their role in the struggle against racism and oppression.”

As Breitbart News has emphasized, “the civil rights movement of the 1960s was about ensuring that black Americans received all of the rights they were due as citizens of the United States while today’s pro-amnesty movement is about demanding full rights for non-citizens who entered the country illegally.”

But that has not stopped amnesty advocates, like gay activists have tried to do with their movement, from trying to tie the amnesty movement to the black civil rights movement.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), for instance, has declared that the amnesty movement is "our Selma."

  1. To bad no one is standing up for Amerucsn CITIZEN's rights which is what the Selma was all about; to insure that our African American brothers and sisters received all the rights that all other citizens have under the American Constitution. Illegals are not citizens, have broken at least one law coming here -- many have been here for years and have made little efforts to be legal. Yet more and more Americans, black, white, Asian, etc., have to take a back seat to the illegal on most everything. And millions wait in their home countries around the world for the chance to immigrate to the US legally. Yet the Democratic Party backs giving illegals the farm with all the chickens for free -- no payment, just for being in our country illegally. There is no reward for being a law abiding citizens except for more taxes to pay for illegal non-citizens.....
