[Ed. – Voters not amused.]
The Huntington Park City Council in southeast Los Angeles faced a massive public backlash Monday night against the August 3 appointment of two illegal aliens to city commissions. Outraged local residents filled a packed council meeting to overflowing in protest at the council’s move.
As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, Julian Zatarain, 21, was appointed to the Huntington Park parks and recreation commission, while Francisco Medina, 29, received appointment to the health and education commission. …
Francisco Rivera, who has lived in the Huntington Park area for 35 years, told the council that he opposes the appointments of the illegal aliens.
“How can we be a great nation when we reward people that come to this nation illegally?” Rivera said. “There’s a difference between a legal immigrant and an illegal immigrant.” …
Chanell Temple, from a group called Blacks for Equal Rights, also opposed the appointments and rejected a comparison that had been made between black slaves and illegal aliens.
“Immigrants are people with a choice, they come here by choice. Black slaves didn’t’ have choice. That’s offensive to me because I’m a descendant of a black slave.”
