LIBERTY MARCH LEAVES SAN DIEGO FOR SACRAMENTO ON APRIL 15TH, 2013

Roger Cotton has decided to undertake a march of "epic proportions." Starting in San Diego CA on April 15, 2013, Cotton will be leading the Liberty March and a series of events throughout parts of California which will culminate in a press conference and rally in Sacramento on June 14th. This march is a call-to-action to defend the Constitution and to stand up for the civil rights of all Americans.

 

"I'm enraged and engaged," says Cotton "Politicians are wreaking havoc on our country, destroying our economy with their reckless spending and insane policies, and now, not only do they expect us to pay more in taxes to supposedly fix what they have done, but they are trying to take away our civil rights as well. No! This will not continue!" Cotton, a fledgling activist, believes that the entire Bill of Rights is being violated, and that the Constitution itself is being subverted, if not ignored altogether. "We've let ourselves go, as citizens. As a result, we are in the position we are in now, where the public serves the public servant. Our freedom is in real danger of being lost."

 

During his march, Cotton will be carrying the American Flag and wearing a satchel holding a petition for redress of grievances he has drafted and will be collecting signed petitions as he goes. This petition is posted on his web site at: www.liberty-march.com, and is available on a PDF download for supporters to print out, gather signatures and add their names to the cause if they are unable to make it to a March rally event.  Cotton invites anyone who supports his cause to walk with him anywhere along his March routes for as far as they can. These signed petitions will be presented to the Office of the Secretary of State and Governor Brown’s office on Monday June 17th, 2013.

 

As a diabetic, Cotton suffers from neuropathy in his hands and feet. "Imagine your feet feeling numb from being in ice water for too long. But, at the same time, you also feel the burning of damaged nerves.  That is how it feels”. Despite his physical condition, Roger is preparing for this endeavor by walking seven to ten miles per day and exercising with a trainer in a gym. "I'm in terrible shape. I let myself go. But that, too, is going to change."

 

Ultimately, Cotton wants California to no longer infringe upon gun ownership by law-abiding citizens. He also demands that policies be put into place at both the State and Federal levels to ensure transparency and accountability. "Politicians are attacking the Second Amendment like never before. I've never owned a gun, but I believe in a citizen's right to keep and bear arms. Not only to protect themselves from others, but from a government that seeks to infringe upon and eliminate his or her rights. These rights are unalienable. Government does not have the power to take them away." Otherwise, he says, "the civil rights of Californians and all Americans will be violated and infringed upon once again."

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
