Despite being outnumbered by the marchers 50 to 1 they were able to equal space in the Aggie for their event. So, in this respect they have won in the short run. Their main problem is going to be to try to convince the campus in the long run of their policy ideals. So perhaps this little game can spawn debates and forums. —SteveOstrowski

The media sources above our comments would seem to suggest that they received disproportional press on their side due to these kinds of events. When you are a minority perspective there is a greater tendency to use unorthodoxed ways of expression. Personally, I saw more disturbing things inside the march then anything DCR did. —SteveOstrowski

They changed their name to US Citizen and Immigration Service when they moved from the Department of Justice to the Department of Homeland Security. I think their motto now, "Securing America's Promise", is a bad sign for the future of this country. Whatever "promise" the USA may have (not America, which is mostly not under the control of this organization, being separate countries), it will not be helped by "security". —NickSchmalenberger
