Amazing. What if the Klan asked him for a platform?
No one has the "human right" to enter a country illegally.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off this South Texas/Mexico ping list.
The "government" isn't doing squat.
Let the games begin.
Farmworkers = Farm Workers
Soooo, Pablo is the law in "them parts?" Or perhaps Pablo has decided that with so many illegals around American Citizens do not have the right to assemble?
What with the illegal activities of the folks with LULAC that assaulted the Minutemen in California and threats of violence from the brown beanies in south Texas, I believe Americans are now beginning to see the true nature of our "economic saviours from south of the border."
Not a single suprise in this report. And by the way Pablo, you are in fact "sending a message." Not the one you think but America is getting it LOUD AND CLEAR.
Obviously, the immediate and over-riding fear is that fundamentalist Muslim enemies of the U.S. will enter through our unguarded borders. It is true, however, that longer term, ethnic strife, including terrorist bombings, is a very real possibility given the current rate of third-world immigration and the lack of assimilation.
"It isnt in the scope of the private citizen to do the job of the government," Herrera said. "The Mexican government thinks the U.S. has the institution, the department in charge of protecting the border
. They (the Border Patrol) know the limits. They know that everybody, undocumented or not, has human rights. Its not something you leave behind when you cross the border.""
I don't really care what the Mexican government thinks. This isn't their country.
People do have intrinsic human rights. Calling the border patrol on them to have them sent back to their own country doesn't violate those.
Threatening US citizens who are volunteering to look for criminals and report them is violating their rights.
Are they going to start threatening neighborhood watch groups next?
"Hidalgo County Democratic Party chairman Juan Maldonado said the party does not condone the actions of the Brown Berets; however, because the group asked him for a platform, he agreed to let them speak at the press conference."
If you don't condone their actions, you don't give them a platform from which to recruit people to perform those actions.
Sounds like a threat to me. Another fascistic movement bent on subverting our borders.
Link to story about racial unrest in the late 60's and early 70's in the Rio Grande Valley area...
"...with physical force if necessary."
Uh, guys, Texas ain't exactly the place to try this.
The Mexican jihad has begun!
An earlier report somewhat contradicts this one:
That link makes it sound like Maldonado is on the BB's side, and the video does too. It would be good to find out when he decided he didn't support their position.
Note that the TV reporters also seem to be on the BB's side.
