Not in Kansas Anymore: Immigration Protestors Target Obama Outside Hancock Park Fundraiser
President Obama's arrival may have gridlocked traffic on the Westside, but a protest outside the fundraiser he's attending in Hancock Park tonight has a different purpose: immigration.
And it's coming with a whimsical twist. Of the few hundred expected to protest some will be wearing Wizard of Oz costumes. According to organizers, this is the meaning behind them:
- "Dorothy" will represent President Obama's hopeful vision for a fair and just society but lost in the land of bickering and political ploys.
- "Tin Man" will represent Senator Graham and the Republican Party for the absence of heart and conscience.
- "Cowardly Lion" will represent House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Leader Reid.
- "Scarecrow" will represent Senator McCain and those pitting immigrants against the rest of America.
