VDARE Suing Mayor of Colorado Springs After Police Protection Pulled from Event

VDARE, a non-profit organization fighting illegal immigration and abuse of the legal immigration system in the United States, is suing the mayor of Colorado Springs, Colorado after he pulled city services for VDARE’s private event.

“Mayor [John] Suthers’s statement made clear that Colorado Springs would not provide police protection to a lawful private gathering.  He made plain that his reason for this blatant discrimination was VDARE’s exercise of its First Amendment right to advocate for changes to America’s immigration policies,” VDARE’s attorney Randy Corporon told Big League Politics. 

After Suthers pulled fire and police, the venue was forced to cancel the event, and VDARE was effectively de-platformed.

“This was a flagrant violation of VDARE’s First Amendment rights. And it is especially troubling for those of us who support the constitutionally protected rights of all groups, whether controversial, favored or disfavored in the eyes of governmental authorities or the public, to peacefully assemble and share ideas,” Corporon said.

Corporon drew comparisons between VDARE’s treatment and the treatment of violent, disruptive, and often criminal groups like Antifa, who receive public accommodations every day, despite their penchant for causing chaos.

“Indeed, we see government officials in other jurisdictions, such as Portland, Oregon in October of 2018, aggressively and at significant taxpayer expense, providing government services to support and protect radical, violent, disruptive groups like Antifa as they literally take over city streets,” he said.

Suthers’s office became flustered when BLP called for comment. They directed us to a spokesperson who never returned our comment request.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato

America must bolster its border security.

Published

The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.

Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior. 

According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang. 

“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.

Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.

With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue. 

As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
