National Mall Closed, Immigration Reform Rally Tuesday

Barricades were set up to keep World War II vets from their memorial in DC.

Sorry, Tea Party lunatics shut down the government.

The Amber Alert website was offline.

Sorry, Tea Party lunatics shut down the government.

People are being forced from their homes in Lake Mead.

Sorry, Tea Party lunatics shut down the government.

Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty -- all "closed" because of Right-wing radicals.

The National Mall is also closed because of Tea Party lunatics, but the Park Service isn't stopping an immigration reform rally from taking place there.

From the Washington Examiner:

A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.

Organizers for the "Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform" were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.

A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.

Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group's rights granted by the First Amendment.

...The event is hosted by several immigration activist groups, together with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO.
The Obama administration isn't harassing its allies.

The union and immigration activists won't be greeted with barricades. The National Mall is closed but, of course, that won't stop the immigration reform rally.


Not at all.

The way the Democrats are picking and choosing their targets from punishment is thoroughly disgusting.

It's the Obama way: Waivers for friends.
