    ROCHESTER — More than 25 protesters stood on an overpass off Exit 15 of the Spaulding Turnpike Friday morning to make a stand against illegal immigration.

    “The goal is to make the American people aware that there are people opposed to illegal immigration,” said event organizer Jerry DeLemus during the protest. “And also let our government know.”

    DeLemus is the Rochester area organizer for the 9/12 Project, which is a national group created by television and conservative radio personality Glenn Beck in 2009.

    Protesters stood on the overpass Friday with flags and signs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Some of the signs read: “Stop Illegal Immigration,” “Honk for no Amnesty,” and “Save your Country.”

    The protests will continue on the overpass tomorrow from 9 a.m. until the afternoon.

    DeLemus organized the protest after receiving an email in which organizers were being recruited to stage illegal immigration protests for July 18 and 19. About 250 similar protests are happening nationwide on the two days according to DeLemus.

    Illegal immigration has become an especially hot topic in recent weeks due to the flood of unescorted minors attempting to cross the southern border of the United States.

    Many of these minor are from Central America, which means they cannot be deported without a court hearing.

    This has lead to the large-scale — and often uncomfortable — housing of thousands of immigrant children, and, consequently, the large-scale outrage of many Americans on both sides of the issue.

    “The solution,” said DeLemus during the protest, “is that our federal government and our state government should follow the law.”

    DeLemus said many politicians are not motivated to solve the problem, and if they were, it would get fixed quickly.

    According to DeLemus, all America needs more patrolling of the nearly 2,000-mile-long border and stricter deportation of currently undocumented immigrants.

    William Baer, who was in the news after being charged with disorderly conduct at a Gilford School Board meeting in May, was at the protest with his daughter, Marina.

    Baer said the blame for the illegal immigration problem lies with the president.

    “The Obama administration has basically not enforced immigration law,” said Baer. “ ... We're becoming a lawless society functioning with a lawless government.”

    Drivers making their way across the overpass had a mostly positive reaction to the more than 25 protesters, said DeLemus.

    “I'd say there 85 percent of the people going by are honking,” said DeLemus.

    Hundreds Of Protests Planned This Weekend Across U.S. Over Border Crisis

    Hundreds of protests over the U.S. government’s handling of a staggering number of unaccompanied minors from Central America who have crossed the border illegally are taking place around the country Friday and Saturday.
    In Philadelphia, supporters of strict immigration enforcement held a demonstration outside the Mexican consulate, while another group that wants more lenient treatment for the kids held a counterprotest, according to a local CBS affiliate.

    “The people have been silent for too long,” Margaret Adelsburger, a member of Pennsylvanians for Immigration Control and Enforcement who was at the protest. “We’ve been invaded. It’s a war.”
    But on the other side, Carmen Guerro, a Mexican immigrant who supports the children, said: “We are not criminals, we are not bad people. We are just human beings.”


    Others protests took place during the day on Friday in various locations, including Florida and Washington State, while many more were scheduled for Saturday.
    Three organizations that favor strict immigration policies were spearheading the protests. Those groups are American Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC), Overpasses for America and Make Them Listen.
    The organizers argue that the Obama administration has turned a blind eye to securing the border, and that has helped fuel the current influx of people from Central America. Those who support the immigrants say it is the poverty and violence in their homelands that is driving them to flee.
    "Our goal is to unify Americans of every race, political party and walk of life against this Obama-inspired invasion of our American homeland," Paul Gheen, president of the South Carolina-based ALIPAC, told Mashable.

    "They make more money this way, they have more control of the government this way — there's a constellation of power groups working to support the invasion of illegal immigration," said Gheen.
    The protests come on the heels of demonstrations that have occurred in various communities in recent weeks as residents and town officials learn that local facilities may be used to temporarily hold some of the immigrants while they are being processed.


    In Iowa, a protest will be held in the name of Louise Sollowin, a 93-year-old woman who died after being raped and beaten by an undocumented immigrant, according to Mashable. Rep. Steve King, a Republican from that state, is expected to speak at the rally. King is one of Congress’ most vocal proponents for strict immigration enforcement.
    The government has been struggling to cope with a surge of Central Americans entering Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, where the Border Patrol has made more than 174,000 arrests since Oct. 1.
    The government has been actively looking for additional detention space — primarily for mothers with young children.


    More than 50,000 unaccompanied minors have crossed the border since October, with that number expected to reach 90,000 this year.

    (SALEM, Ore. ) - Oregonians for Immigration Reform are holding protest events in various locations throughout the mid-Willamette Valley on Friday and Saturday.
    Protesters are being cautioned by organizers to remain civil, and if you plan on attending to bring your own signs, flags, a folding chair, water, and sunscreen. "These protests are designed to raise public awareness and opposition to the Obama inspired illegal immigration surge on our Southern border." said Paul Arnold of Make them Listen.
    "Our goal is to unify Americans of every race, political party, and walk of life against this Obama inspired invasion of our American homeland." said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "We want to harness the grass roots backlash forming out there and channel it into the remaining GOP primaries and general elections of 2014 to throw as many immigration reform amnesty supporters out of office as possible this year."
    "This border crisis is a result of Obama's dereliction of duty and his refusal to honor his oath of office, our laws, our borders, and the US Constitution that guarantees that 'all states shall be protected from invasion'" said James Neighbors of Overpasses for America. "We need to protest and elect new members of Congress who will stop Obama's abuses of power and this invasion. Obama is making it clear that he cares more about illegal immigrants than the American citizens of all races who elected him."
