Patriots Make Immigration Activism Fun Again: Operation Liberate Cudahy

Being an anti-illegal immigration activist can be a grind. You are constantly battling against an entrenched status quo in possession of structural advantages that can be extraordinarily difficult for grassroots boot-strappers to overcome.

It is a slog. And at times it can feel hopeless leaving you exhausted and ready to quit.

But then there are those glorious times where you are reminded that it is all worth it.​


Background on Cudahy

The ongoing battle to liberate the sanctuary city of Cudahy, CA and return her to her rightful place as an American city is one example of how patriots are making illegal immigration activism fun again.

Cudahy has a reputation along with many of the other neighboring cities with extremely high populations of foreign born residents for being rife with corruption. It sits along the 710 freeway in between the 10 and 91 freeways -- often referred to as the "Corridor of Corruption."

This area achieved national notoriety thanks to the City of Bell scandal.​

In early 2015, the city council declared Cudahy, the second smallest town in Los Angeles County, a sanctuary city. With a population of approximately 26,000 legal and illegal alien residents, it is one of the most densely populated areas in the region.

Hispanics make up 96% of the population and occupy all five seats on the council.

​We the People Rising

​Before illegal immigration activists discovered Cudahy, a die hard and fearless group of American patriots from "We the People Rising" were protesting the nearby city of Huntington Park.

Huntington Park decided, because this is how far California has gone off the rails, that they were going to appoint illegal aliens to various city commissions.

One of the most frustrating things about being an anti-illegal immigration activist is the tendency for people, especially those who live in other states, to roll their eyes and suggest that these crazy stunts will never happen.

For decades we fought the effort to give illegal aliens drivers licenses. We lost while millions of Americans said it would never happen.

For decades we have fought efforts to give illegal aliens the right to vote and hold public offices. ​Millions scoffed and said it would never happen.

Well, here we have an American city appointing illegals to be commissioners on official boards that make decisions and set policy directives.

You would think that after watching illegal aliens get free K-12 education, in-state tuition to college, drivers licenses, a myriad of government benefits, and appointed to government positions, that people would wake up.

Here is a video of an illegal alien stating that her goal is to run for elected office during a Los Angeles news interview. Wake up!​

​Let the Games Begin...

Enter Arthur Schaper!

Arthur Schaper is a member of "We the People Rising" and very active in Republican circles, leading the Beach Cities Republicans in the South Bay of Los Angeles County.

He is a prolific Facebook "livestreamer" of meetings and protests​ and you can check out his videos on his YouTube channel.

"There be no shelter here!"

He learned about Cudahy and began to also tackle their council meetings with a group of activists in January of 2016.

The council was blindsided and totally shook by their assertive advocacy and activism. Here is video from the first meeting these patriots crashed forcing Councilman Chris Garcia to flee. The council chamber erupted.

So unnerved by the fact that these activists had descended upon their meetings, the council passed an emergency ordinance to vacate their council chambers and move their meetings to a local park.


In order for city council members to arrive and exit the city council meetings, they must pass through the throng of anti-illegal immigration activists who shout them down and heckle them at every turn.

At the park, the council members can flee through side exits and avoid any interaction with the public.​

There is something deliciously yummy about the prospect of a sanctuary city supporting council abandoning ​the confines of its own chambers and evacuating to makeshift digs to avoid being harassed and harangued by pissed off American citizens.

They have not had a council meeting in their own chambers for nearly 18 months!​

There be no shelter here. The front lines are everywhere.​

​Patriots Shut Down Meeting

​Patriots attended these meetings for over a year and you could tell it was impacting the body.

Exasperated and frustrated by the irritants, Councilman Chris Garcia proceeded to call the persistent activists "white supremacists" from the dais at the February 27, 2017 meeting.

Our group of activists immediately erupted and shouted down the councilman. It was a relentless verbal assault that forced the council to adjourn the meeting early.

This is must watch video:

​Mounting Tensions

Following this display of American political muscle, the open borders advocates on the city council started recruiting radical leftists to start attending the meetings.

These leftists have begun getting belligerent and violent with our group of American patriots. 

While the public congregates outside before meetings, the radical leftists attempt to intimidate and shout down the patriots. Inside during the meetings they are harassed. And at the conclusion of meetings they are harassed on the way out.

Moreover, various members of the council have been ditching and dodging council meetings. Often, there are only three members present, the minimum number needed to have quorum.

It Takes Three to Tango...

Jack Guerrero is the only Republican elected to the city council and is constantly at odds with his vindictive colleagues who repeatedly insult and criticize him from the dais.

He has grown increasingly tired and fed up with the habitual absences of his colleagues. ​ At the most recent meeting on May 22, there was once again only three members present, the minimum needed to make quorum.

Guerrero publicly rebuked the absent members and the repeated absences. Shortly after the meeting began and before any business was conducted, Mr. Guerrero announced he was leaving.

This immediately forced the adjournment of the council meeting and resulted in no city business being conducted.

Let's Step Outside​

Patriots cheered and rejoiced in their role in preventing the city from conducting regular business. And the open borders opposition howled and screamed calling us outsiders, racists and white supremacists.

The tension was palpable as the audience proceeded to filter outside into the public commons area.

That was when a masked Antifa member decided to punch one of our patriots which was caught on video. Take a look:

The masked Antifa was arrested and subsequently unmasked. Antifa hasn't seemed to figure out that if you wear a mask, it doesn't protect you from being identified once you are arrested.

Immediately, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department summoned dozens of officers and a helicopter (see video below) to disperse the crowd after the meeting was declared an unlawful assembly.​

Unfortunately, the only news coverage was from Noticias 62. No other media, print or television covered the meeting.​

​Nationalism is Fun!

Activism can be very fun, extremely entertaining, highly amusing, and incredibly effective when done right and persistently.

These meetings started with one deputy in attendance. Last meeting there were at least four present at the beginning and about two dozen at the end.

On June 12, the next schedule meeting date, I am sure there will be more than four to start because myself and these fellow patriots will be back and we are going to keep coming back.

This is our land. This is our fight. And we must liberate the occupied territory of Cudahy.​
