There was a lot of noise going on in Las Vegas on Sunday--and it wasn't happenin' inside the casinos.
The Minuteman Project and other activists met at the Las Vegas convention center for a two-day summit called "Unite to Fight Against Illegal Immigration." And that upset quite a few people.
More than 150 demonstrators waved Mexican flags and screamed "racists, go home!"
Miguel Marrientos, president of the Las Vegas Mexican-American Political Association, said that the Minuteman Project and its followers are "creating division among Americans. We don't need it."
According to a May 29 AP report, Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist said that a declaration of war is committed every time a Mexican flag is planted on American soil. "If this isn't a declaration of war, I don't know what is," he said.
Gilchrist--Why don't you do us all a favor and bury your head in the soil. And I'll be the first one there to plant a Mexican flag.
