WOW! And illegal aliens and those who promote illegality call Americans who oppose illegal migration and the presence of illegal aliens in the US, "racist," "bigot," "xenophobe," and a variety of other undeserved insults! I think those labels can justly be applied to Gustavo Arellano,among others, on the basis of the content of this page. What would happen if an American wrote an article in which he called LaRaza a rotten, whorish, stupid, slimy, organization? More demonstrating in the streets, complete with screeching, wailing and children removed from school to participate in an event they do not understand? More demands by foreign nationals and agents of foreign powers to change our laws to accommodate their illegal preferences? Gutierrez, Grijalvo and their cohorts demanding a formal apology and a public whipping?
Next time I see an American called one of those insults merely on the strength of his opposition to illegal acts and the violation of the national sovereignty and security, economic and environmental well-being of the US, I'll refer the name-caller to this article. Yes, there are bigots of all kinds, on all sides. Arellano has identified himself as one of them. They should ALL be condemned.
Oh, and BTW, Americans don't want Mexican land - only the land that is legally and rightfully ours. And grassroots Americans don't recruit Mexicans, well-educated or otherwise, to come here. We resent the profiteers who do, and want to see them punished. But no one is coerced into coming here. Legally or illegally, Mexicans in this country come here voluntarily. Why don't you detail all the things about the Mexican government and living in Mexico that causes that?
