Minuteman Wins GOP Primary for House Seat

By
Wednesday, March 04, 2009 at 9:34 am

Last night voters in Illinois’ heavily Democratic 5th congressional district voted in a primary for candidates to replace former Rep. Rahm Emanuel, now the White House chief of staff.

Mike Quigley won the Democratic primary, while Rosanna Pulido won the GOP primary.

Who’s Rosanna Pulido? She was a founder of the Illinois Minutemen, a wing of the immigration restriction group that patrolled the U.S.-Mexico border in 2006 and 2007. In this CNN interview, she called then-GOP presidential nominee Sen. John McCain “just another politician that acts as if he was elected to represent the Mexican government.”

Pulido will likely lose in this district that gave President Obama a 73-26 win over McCain.

Even if she wins, she will lose. It's not how many votes you get, it's how many votes get counted. And you can “count” on Illinois to count creativly as they have for decades. When a state like my Mexifornia becomes a one party state, corruption is institutionalized and cannot be changed.
You can then only vote with your feet.

David Weigel is completely wrong on his dates. The MInutemen were first on the Border in AZ in early April, 2005–not “2006-2007″.

Republicans need to attract underrepresented minorities in order to expand their base.

What is a more underrepresented minority than female Latino minutemen?

Go Rosanna. She won't win, but she does send a message to the Republican Party: The era of old bald white male politicians who believe in open borders and the sweatshop agenda- well that era is over.

The other thing is:

Rosanna is extremely intelligent, articulate, and outspoken.

Her day in the sun politically probably hasn't arrived yet, but that day will come.

But she probably can forget about ever becoming a US Senator, because the “house of derelicts” doesn't look kindly on anyone with intelligence or leadership skills.

Major Amendment dropped from the STIMULUS! YOUR JOBS!

It is the Last chance to save American jobs and to demand our lawmakers reinstate E-Verify as a MANDATORY law. These pariah lawmakers already killed it in Stimulus. Only the US legal population have the power to force reluctant politicians to vote for this law. The usual anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal immigrant critics are trying to sabotage it. Along with corrupt politicians who receive campaign contribution from the lobbyists, to weaken our immigration laws.

Sen. Harry Reid leads the wolf pack with the only efficient tool we have in our arsenal to stop the escalation of illegal labor. March 6 is the deadline to revitalize E-Verify for another 5 years or let it die. Without its power American Workers are at the mercy of the pariah business industry who can then employ illegal foreigners at minimum wage. If you value your job, within any trade or profession it is not safe. Even the high professional jobs have been stolen by visa over-stayers. Not every illegal alien comes from South of the border. Make your demands known at the Washington Switchboard (202) 224-3121. If the lines are busy, keep trying?

Extremely articulate and outspoken, indeed: “If the Church succeeds in their mission, they will destroy the United States of America!” – Rosanna Pulido, testimony before Illinois House of Representatives Executive Committee, April 16, 2008

According to a Zogby poll released last week.The Zogby poll was commissioned by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization that seeks to reform immigration policies. 87 percent of Legal American citizens said they “favor legalization or amnesty for illegal immigrants”

If, for no other reason than the long history of Democratic political corruption in Chicago, voters in the 5th District should realize that this upcoming election represents the opportunity for them to take back control by NOT voting for one of the hand-picked Party-owned Democratic candidates. Pulido may have run as a Republican, but it is obvious she is not owned -bought and paid for – by any Party. This country desperately needs these types of people in D.C. Before the results were final, the Chicago Sun Times reported that Quigley would win the April election. This is not reporting; rather, it is a DNC-sponsored message from a newspaper that more resembles a DNC Newsletter.

Congratulations, Rosanna! We conservatives are very proud of you and wish you the best of luck in your quest for public office. We so desperately need public servants like you to restore honesty and credibility to our government on all levels. Thank you and good luck!

Rosanna's work is based out of an extremist mode, that i have seen personally. I have heard her use the ” N” word. with family…. i have known her for years-she is rooted in some ' shallow' philosophies, from some right wing group on Yahoo -period. Two years ago, she had no interests.. she just got on the internet.. with some fringe right wings.. she lived in a basement, up to a year ago. Where did she get the money to get here? Funded by many KKK type… that is all.

Money? Did she start a nonprofit? And get it?
Latinas say that she does not represent them in Chicago,so whoever is so excited ? big deal.
She has a high school degree.. that is pretty powerful stuff..

The Illinois Minutemen are NOT an “immigration restriction group”!
But, they are STRONGLY against the illegal alien invasion, the fleecing of the US taxpayer, and the treacherous US politicians, who have allowed this to happen, for decades!
I am 4th generation, US born, US citizen of Hispanic origin. I am American, and NOTHING ELSE!
There is no hyphen there, and there is ONE flag flying above my house: the US flag.
Obama, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, MALDEF, the NCLR, the SPCL and other race baiters DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME!
Rosanna Pulido speaks for me!
Go, Rosanna, there are MILLIONS behind you!

Pathetic. That's what your comments are. Anyone with a slight inclination towards conservative politics has been lambasted by progressive liberals for the past 8 years. But now that there is a progressive liberal (aka socialist) in the White House all of you people that mumbled your hate towards people that disagreed with you over the past 8 years feel that you can finally shout your mind and attempt to slander and bully anyone that disagrees with you. That's your right. Bring it on. I am not afraid of your banshee screaming and misguiding lies. The biggest problem people like you have is that you have been breeding hate and false accusations for so long that you don't know how to stop it even when you have a two branch control of the government. It makes me wonder if you are that insecure about yourself, or you just don't have any idea what to do next. Any insight would be appreciated.
Since you just had a bunch of gibberish to say about Rosanna, who I do not know personally, I tend not to believe you. Accusations of the type you made are ridiculous since you cannot even back them up in an intelligent manner.
Also, unlike you, I am proud to post my name with this comment. I don't need to hide from what I say.

Open borders and amnesties foster mass importation of cheap labor and boost welfare receipients to all time highs. If open border advocates truly want unlimited and loosely regulated immigration and receive support from legislators, they may well get what they wish for. Merciless fighting over jobs, 3rd world pay scales, and poverty as seen in National Geographic. Greed of corporations and the individual that could care less about national heritage and being their brothers keeper may win the day if we do not uphold our laws.

Republicans again blew it. They have lost election after election with this death horse. If they had passed immigration reform in 2005, they would had win. No only last election, but future onces. They acted like a bunch of mad dogs that scare and disgust most American. They also blew the good perception that the world used to have about American fairness, freedom, humanitarian, benevolent, good people. The same way that Americans feel when one of their own get hurts, that the same way people around the world feel when any immigrant legal or illegal get hurts. Why buy American product, if immigrant are treated like animals. Just remember also that God is watching and he can give but he can take to. Look the disaster the American economic is now. If it is not for cheap labor, just think about much you will pay for product. Why people want to come here to clean toilers, break their backs working 12 hours in places were the temperature can take their life, take garbage from anybody, among other things, it is very puzzle. Some people said legals have to wait in their countries before they are allow to get it. Yes, but they are with their family, partying, eating, enjoying their country, unless they are refuges. So what is there sacrify. At least mexicans take a big chance with their life to come over, They can be rape, kill by the nasty environment or cojote. The legals just take planes to come over. So what is the sacrify. So GOP stops your racist. Now that you cannot discriminate against black (because it is against the law), now you want to take the foreigners. Eat a peach.

I THINK IT'S WONDERFUL THAT A REAL IMMIGRANT HAS GOTTEN THE NOMINATION. AND SHE'S SO RIGHT ABOUT MCCAIN. HE WAS SO UNPOPULAR HERE IN AZ BEFORE THEY SET HIM UP FOR BEING A CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT (OF ALL THINGS – IF PEOPLE ONLY KNEW WHAT ARIZONANS THINK OF HIM) THAT HE HAD TROUBLE GETTING PEOPLE TO WORK FOR HIM!

AMERICANS WANT THE MILITARY ON THE BORDER AND WE WANT E-VERIFY TO BE MANDATED FOR ALL EMPLOYERS. AMERICANS'S JOBS SHOULD NOT BE STOLEN BY ILLEGAL ALIENS. WE NOW HAVE 10-15 MILLION AMERICANS OUT OF A JOB AND THAT MANY ILLEGALS AT LEAST (& PROBABLY MUCH MORE) ARE WORKING AT THEM! MCCAIN HAS DONE NOTHING TO SECURE OUR BORDERS – HE IS A RINO AND NOT REALLY A REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVE. HE IS ONE OF THE BIG BOYS WHO WANT THE DEMISE OF THIS NATION SO THEY CAN MAKE A NORTH AMERICAN UNION (TO GET RID OF AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY SO THEY CAN MAKE A ONE WORLD ORDER DICTATORSHIP!). IT'S ALL ABOUT GREED AND POWER AND THEY DON'T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO AMERICANS OR THE USA.

All Latinos! Beware! Do NOT Vote for Rosanna Pulido!
She is a Traitor to her Race! Remember that when you go to the polls!
She stands with the Evil Racists who promote Racial Profiling and Racial Hatred!
She is an advocate of Racist groups like the Minutemen and the racist group F.A.I.R.

Vote Democrat!
