Anti-illegal-immigrant leader goes to Washington

Marietta anti-illegal-immigrant activist D.A. King has taken his spiel to the top.

According to the Washington Post, King coordinated a rally on Sunday that brought 400 people to protest illegal immigration on the eve of another congressional attempt to try to hammer out immigration reform. The event took place at a park directly across from the White House. King told the crowd, "Anyone with a different agenda against skin color or national origin, you are not welcome ... and you will not be tolerated."

King made headlines in 2005 when he paid homeless individuals $10 to hold anti-illegal-immigration posters and signs outside the Georgia Capitol. Since then, King has hooked up with Roger Hedgecock, a radio talk-show host from San Diego and frequent guest on Rush Limbaugh's show, to organize national protests such as the one that occurred earlier this week.
