    Undocumented Migrants Will Remake U.S., Mexican Activists Says

    March 10,2012

    GUADALAJARA, Mexico – Undocumented immigrants will remake U.S. society and politics in the coming years, a Mexican priest who advocates on behalf of Central American migrants said.

    “They are becoming a hidden, silent revolution that will re-found the United States and transform it into a true democracy,” the Rev. Alejandro Solalinde told Efe at the Guadalajara International Film Festival, which is screening a documentary about the priest’s migrant shelter in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

    U.S. authorities estimate the number of undocumented immigrants in the country at around 12 million.

    The growing northbound flow of Central Americans fleeing poor economic prospects in their homelands “has demonstrated the failures” of public institutions in both Mexico and the United States, he said.

    He also criticized the Catholic Church for what he described as indifference to the plight of the migrants.

    Despite death threats from gangsters and harassment by authorities who would like to close the priest’s Casa del Migrante shelter in Ixtepec, Oaxaca, Solalinde said he has no fear of dying and that he has taken the legal steps “to leave everything in order” if he should be killed.

    The documentary “El albergue” (The Shelter) shows Solalinde providing food, lodging and advice to Central American migrants who undertake the arduous journey across Mexico in hopes of reaching the United States and realizing the “American Dream.”

    Casa del Migrante lies on key smuggling routes used by traffickers of drugs, guns and human beings, Solalinde told Efe, and the film illustrates the abuses migrants suffer at the hands of organized crime, often with the complicity of Mexican authorities.

    The documentary also highlights the “double standards” of Mexico’s government, according to the film’s director, Alejandra Islas.

    While Mexico demands respect for its citizens in the United States, it allows Central American migrants to be brutalized on its territory, she said.

    At least 11,333 migrants, the majority of them from Central America, were kidnapped in Mexico between April and September 2010, the Mexican National Human Rights Commission said in a report released about a year ago.

    An estimated 300,000 Central Americans and 400,000 Mexicans undertake the dangerous trek across Mexico each year on their way to the United States. EFE

    "We have an aging white America. . . . They are dying. . . . They are ******** in their pants with fear! I love it!" "We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him."

    "While I am saying this half serious and half joking, I think we are practicing la reconquista in California."
    ~ Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General, Feb 2002.

    "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders and that Mexican migrants are an important - a very important - part of this."
    ~ Ernesto Zedillo, Former President of Mexico, speaking in Chicago, July 23, 1997.

    "Mexico extends beyond its borders."
    ~ Vicente Fox, Current President of Mexico, speaking to a gathering in Milwaukee in July of 2001

    "California is going to be a Hispanic State and anyone who doesn't like it should leave. They should go back to Europe."
    ~ Mario Obledo, President of the Californian Coalition of Hispanic Organisations, June 1998

    "Our devil has pale skin and blue eyes..." "To the gringos in the audience, I have one final message to convey, 'Up yours, baby. You've had it, from now on.' "
    ~ Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas.

    "We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population... I love it. They are sh!tting in their pants with fear. I love it.... We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him."
    ~ Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor, University of Texas.

    "We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos... non-Latinos aren't watching, they aren't raising questions"
    ~ Fernando Guerra, professor, Loyola Marymount

    "Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. .. Through love of having children, we are going to take over."
    ~ Augustin Cebeda, of the 'Brown Berets', a militant Aztlan group at a violent rally in Los Angeles on July 4, 2000.

    "Fair housing agencies report a surge in discrimination by immigrant landlords from many nations who refuse to rent outside their ethnic group."
    ~ Reported in Los Angeles Times, Nov. 21 2001.

    "In an extraordinary political move, President Vicente Fox has announced the formation of a cabinet level agency to govern, protect and provide services to over 20 million Mexicans now living in Aztlan, a territory encompassing most of the southwest part of the USA. President Fox declared yesterday that he will personally lead the new agency he named "Consejo Nacional para las Comunidades Mexicanas en el Exterior" (National Council for Mexican Communities Abroad). The "Council" will consist of the president, most of the cabinet secretaries and a, as of yet unnamed, representative from Aztlan. This is a bold move that essentially extends the arm of the Mexican government into the territories it previously lost during the Mexican-American War of 1848."
    ~ Reported in "La Voz de Aztlan", August 7, 2002.

    "We have Nicaragua, soon we will have El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Costa Rica, and Mexico. One day, tomorrow or five years or fifteen years from now, we're going to take 5 to 10 million Mexicans and they are going into Dallas, into El Paso, into Houston, into New Mexico, into San Diego, and each one will have embedded in his mind the idea of killing ten Americans."
    ~Thomas Borge, Nicaragua Interior Minister as quoted in the Washington Times, March 27, 1985

    Illegal Immigrant on CBS: In 20 Years, We'll Run America

    "Lesson one in the how to manual goes like this: ‘Today we march, tomorrow we vote.’"
    By Michael Rule | July 31, 2006 | 14:29

    Yesterday, on CBS’s "Sunday Morning" reporter Martha Teichner narrated a piece sympathetic to Hispanic immigrants, and in particular, illegal immigrants. She profiled three Hispanic people, two of whom initially came to the country illegally. One illegal immigrant she profiled was defiant of his status, and sounded almost threatening when he said:
    Alex Vega, Illegal Immigrant. (Pictured):

    "In 20 years, we are going to run the country. Right now we're running the cities. So little by little, we're running the show. Little by little. So this sleeping giant is already awakened."
    And, as noted by Ms. Teichner, the strategy for illegal immigrants is:
    Martha Teichner: "Lesson one in the how to manual goes like this: ‘Today we march, tomorrow we vote.’"
    The piece omitted some crucial elements, first there was no mention of societal costs of illegal immigration, such as health care and education costs, crime, particularly gang crime like MS-13, and second, Teichner ignored the overall question of the appropriateness of people illegally crossing into America to influence the democratic process. How many nations would allow non citizens, much less people with no legal authority to be in the country, to influence the outcomes of elections and policy debates?

    The answer is not many, so why, then, should the United States allow this? In fact the only anti illegal immigration voice in the piece was a sound bite from Congressman Virgil Goode:
    Virgil Goode, Virginia Representative: "The position of the Senate needs to be there will be no amnesty period. If we took that position, many of those here illegally now would march on back to Mexico."
    The highpoint of Teichner’s piece was the fact that she mentioned an actual poll that finds that almost 90% of Americans feel that illegal immigration is a problem:

    Martha Teichner: "Today, an estimated 12 million are here illegally. A CBS/News New York Times poll found that nearly nine out of 10 Americans consider illegal immigration either a serious or very serious problem..."
    Illegal immigration is a serious issue, and reporters ought to be reporting all the facts, benefits and costs on the subject, not just choosing to highlight illegal immigrants, who invoke our sympathy while failing to report the societal consequences of illegal immigration.
