    Illegal-alien 'solidarity caravan' led by professional radicals

    Seeking to end deportations, detentions, 'militarization' of U.S. border

    A “Solidarity Caravan” traveling the country to protest what its leaders claim is the militarization of the U.S. border is led by far-left professional agitators and union organizers.

    Workers World, the official newspaper of the Workers World Party, a Marxist-Leninist organization in the United States, has been documenting the movements of the “National Caravan in Solidarity with the Children and Families on the Mexico and Texas Borders.”

    Launched Oct. 10 in New York City, the purportedly grassroots school-bus caravan has made stops in Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Durham, North Carolina.; Atlanta; Jackson, Mississippi; and several Texas cities, including Houston, San Antonio, Laredo and Brownsville.

    The self-described “caravanistas” met in each city with “immigrant rights, civil rights, faith-based, community and social justice activists” to draw attention to the “militarization at the U.S./Mexican border,” reported Workers World.

    The caravan aims to “redefine the upsurge of Mexican and Central American migrants – tens of thousands of children and families detained at the border – from a border crisis to a major refugee crisis,” the communist newspaper continued.

    Despite the tens of thousands of illegal alien minors streaming across the border and being granted entry into the U.S., the “caravanistas” are complaining about what they see as “federal and state governments’ abusive and inhumane measures against migrants, including deportations and detentions.”

    The Solidarity Caravan ended its cross-country trip Monday in McAllen, Texas.

    Like so many other instances of purported grassroots activism, the caravan leaders are actually far-left professional organizers.

    The two caravan coordinators are Bill Chandler, executive director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, and Teresa Gutierrez, a member of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party.

    Gutierrez, a member of numerous pro-illegal alien groups, has her own activist experience with agitating law enforcement.

    In 2007, she was a leader in a “Pastors for Peace” caravan, which wanted to cross into Mexico to ultimately challenge what it described as the “immoral” U.S. blockade of Cuba. That caravan was stopped by border agents and police.

    Meanwhile, according to a press release from the new Caravan Solidarity coordinators, the cross-country journey also aimed at raising money for the South Texas Human Rights Center.

    The center’s founder is Eddie Canales, who is also a director of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, or NNIRR.

    The NNIRR draws no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants and calls on the U.S. government to “affirm the right of workers to cross international borders” and “demilitarize the U.S.-Mexico border to end law enforcement and human rights abuses.”

    Canales works for the SEIU union’s Justice for Janitors campaign in Denver, which many in the progressive movement view as the precursor to the Occupy movement. He was also an organizer of the third party movement, La Raza Unida, in Texas in the 1970s.

    The Solidarity Caravan is just the latest example of an apparently grassroots pro-illegal alien movement actually being led by leftist professional activists.

    WND reported last year billionaire George Soros is a primary donor to the so-called immigrant-rights organization that has been blocking buses and carrying out other civil disobedience to prevent the deportation of illegal aliens.

    WND documented the bus-blocking movement was led by numerous radical Soros-funded activist groups.

    Solidarity caravan heads to U.S./Mexico border

    Historic Riverside Church in New York City was the location for the send-off on Oct. 10 of the “National Caravan in Solidarity with the Children and Families at the Mexico and Texas Borders.” The enthusiastic crowd of nearly 100 supporters cheered on caravan organizers and participants, jumping to their feet several times during the program.

    The Solidarity Caravan is being organized by immigrant rights, faith-based and other community, social justice and progressive activists, and labor unionists. Their school bus is traveling to 12 cities on its way to the militarized border town of McAllen, Texas. As of Oct. 13, the caravan had stopped in Philadelphia; Baltimore; Washington; Durham, N.C.; and Atlanta.

    The caravan received a warm welcome at its first stop in south Philadelphia on Saturday, Oct. 11, at a breakfast and discussion organized by Juntos, a Latino/a immigrant rights community organization. Relatives of undocumented immigrants currently facing deportation were among the speakers. Philadelphia area activists hopped aboard the caravan bus for a brief solidarity action prior to its departure.

    A press release issued on Oct. 13 by caravan coordinator Teresa Gutierrez and Bill Chandler, executive director of the Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance, announced that on Oct. 14 there will be a meeting in Jackson, Miss., with civil rights activists to discuss the shared struggle for human rights for migrants, immigrants and all oppressed people in the U.S. There will also be a memorial service dedicated to the city’s late mayor, Chokwe Lumumba, an internationally known human rights leader.

    On Oct. 15, the caravan will leave for Houston, and then continue on to San Antonio the next day. Stops are also planned for other cities in the state: Laredo, Brownsville, and finally, McAllen. There, the caravan will join with U.S., Mexican and Central American activists from human rights, faith-based and social justice organizations to protest the increasing militarization of the border and the enormous human cost of migration.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry has called in the National Guard, so there are now military personnel staffing checkpoints 100 miles from the border.

    A major goal of the caravan is to redefine the upsurge of Mexican and Central American migrants from being simply a humanitarian crisis to its reality as an unprecedented Central American refugee crisis, which this year alone has led to the detention at the border of more than 65,000 unaccompanied children and 60,000 families. It will raise awareness of and mobilize against federal and local governments’ inhumane measures in dealing with the refugee crisis and the broken immigration system.

    This is the worst refugee crisis in the U.S. in more than 30 years, say caravan organizers, with the forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of children and families from their homes. They are fleeing organized crime, paramilitary violence and destruction of their local economies due to the imposition of free trade agreements under the auspices of the U.S. government.

    That's what it's really about, isn't it. Destroying the border, so that Americans can no longer exercise sovereignty over their own country.

    Taking American jobs away from Americans is the key element. If people can't earn a living, they will do whatever the government tells them to do. If 'Bamacrats and sellout Repubs have their way, Americans will be told that they are lucky if they have a job at all, so don't make waves. Yikes.
