Immigration Motivates March, Not Statues

Robert E. Lee Just weeks ago, a march took place in Charlottesville that made national headlines. It quickly became apparent that people, mostly Caucasians, were angry over the removal of a statue of General Robert E. Lee. News outlets reported that protesters were upset about the removal of a piece of the city’s history, and showed counter-protestors clashing with those who held the belief that history should be preserved. But that wasn’t the whole story.

The organizer of the march, Jason Kessler, is an activist and known anti-immigration writer. He most recently fought against the city’s status as a sanctuary city. Immigration has emerged as the real motivation for the march and protest — not the removal of a statue.

Kessler is the organizer of a group called Unity and Security for America. The goal of the group is to determine and fight the effects of immigration on white United States citizens. The group’s focus is lobbying for laws restricting legal and illegal immigration. In an article, Kessler was reported as stating that white people are becoming a minority and that they need to advocate for themselves before they go extinct.

While many are certainly angered over the removal of what they consider to be the history of this nation, the real reason for the recent march may not be so cut and dry. Many, including the organizer of the march, want to ban immigrants from the country and are eager to make their opinion heard.

Client Reviews
I applied for citizenship the first time, but my husband was previously denied citizenship. We hired Elliott Law Group and both Lana and Kate really exceeded our expectations. My husband and I just got sworn in as U.S. citizens! T.S.
I first hired Lana to help me obtain legal residency for my parents in 2006, then for my wife in 2007. She did a great job and my parents and wife got their green cards. Although Lana is not in California anymore, she still assists with immigration processes for other members of my family. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs the help of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. S.P.
Good day, Atty. Lana. I would like to thank you for all the support and assistance. We appreciated and indeed, me and my wife very happy with how you handled my daughter’s case. We can personally say that we made the right decision for having your law office as our choice. tks a lot. V.N.
