Idaho Protesters Want Stricter Rules For Immigrants But Fewer Regulations For Themselves


Holding signs that read, "Honk for America" and "No Amnesty" and waving American flags, protesters stood north of the Perrine Memorial Bridge in Twin Falls Saturday to deride undocumented workers and their families.

"It's about patriotism and the Constitution," protester B.J. Tomberlin told the Twin Falls Times-News while holding another sign that read "Secure Our Borders."

The protesters, part of something called "Overpasses for America," said they reject immigration amnesty, but would also like to impeach President Barack Obama.

"It's not that we don't want people to move here," said another protester Debra McCreery. "We just want them to respect our laws when they do."

The group's Facebook page calls for lower taxes and "fewer regulations."
