While most pro-immigrant activists are focusing on educating people about President Obama's new immigration policy regarding DREAM Act students, which promises to stop the deportations of some undocumented youth, the local human-rights group Puente is advocating a halt to all immigration deportations.

And to convey that defiant message, Puente is planning to gather about 40 undocumented immigrants and travel via bus across the country, visiting cities in the Southwest along the way. 

The trip will begin July 29 in Phoenix and end at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina, which is scheduled to begin September 4.

"[We're] challenging either places that have passed similar legislation [as Arizona's Senate Bill 1070] or [have anti-immigrant] sheriffs, or places that there is current [immigrant-community] struggle," says Puente organizer Carlos Garcia.

The "undocubus," as Garcia calls it, will include undocumented aliens who live in Arizona, Texas, Colorado and New Mexico. 

The irony of a bus trip for aliens already at risk for being bussed to the the border if deported is intentional, according to Garcia.

The point? To show the Democratic Party that President Obama is as bad as Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio when it comes to immigration enforcement.

How many want to wager that the bus has only illegal latinos? I wonder why that is. Oh, probably because the other minority of illegals are smart and lay low. Keep shining the light on yourselves. You're not winning any fans for your "cause" pulling this stunt. Drop the race card-show the green card. Stop the hate-respect our States.

Okay, I've been saying for years that no organization is operating in the US which is in favor of allowing workers, criminals, and drug addicts to immigrate to this country without the proper documentation.  Well, here it is - what a bunch of morons!  Puente is the WORST thing that could happen to the migrant workers ever.  Rather than make a rational point Mr. Garcia and crew keep doing things which will only make the uproar against illegal immigration louder.  Really, not one person here without proper immigration status should be deported? Hey Carlos - how about  that illegal Guatamalen who's going to rape your sister next week?  Not even him? How about that White guy from South Africa who shoots people coming across the border because he hates "mud people" - want to leave him here too?  You sir, are a pinche puto pendejo baboso,
