I have done my best here to transcribe John Rucki's speech from the Morristown ProAmerica rally held on Saturday 28, 2007.
I will continue to transcribe the other speeches as well because I feel this is an important issue and I think we have to fully understand the intentions of these groups.
John Ruck is from a group called New Jersey Citizens for Immigration Control. The homepage of his website shows Hispanics crossing through a desert. You can find things in his speech that are suspect as well.

They swore to uphold all of the laws of this country and they failed to do it. They have not upheld the fine traditions of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives. We deserve better. I would remind our elected officials, at all levels – enforce the law! Selective enforcement of the law is a form of tyranny and we will not tolerate it. More and more local government municipalities, country government, were taking on the tasks that our Federal government has failed to do. They have failed to protect our borders, they have failed to manage an effective and efficient immigration system. They can’t even process passports in a timely manner. They cannot even keep contaminated food stuff substances from entering this country and making us sick. More and more municipalities’ counties are picking up the slack and doing what they vowed to do, correct the quality of life problems that the federal government is not providing for us.
