César Chávez would be ashamed of the demonstrations that are spread across the United States today because these protest are the antithesis of what his life work was all about.
Today’s rallies are meant to support illegal aliens who crossed into this country breaking the laws of this country and now are demanding that American laws be disregarded or changed to make their lives more comfortable. Yet many Americans are opposed to illegal entry into the United States.
However according to Steve Sailor, Chávez, for many years, was a ferocious opponent of illegal immigration.
In 1979, Chávez bitterly testified to Congress:
… when the farm workers strike and their strike is successful, the employers go to Mexico and have unlimited, unrestricted use of illegal alien strikebreakers to break the strike. And, for over 30 years, the Immigration and Naturalization Service has looked the other way and assisted in the strikebreaking. I do not remember one single instance in 30 years where the Immigration service has removed strikebreakers [illegal aliens]. … The employers use professional smugglers to recruit and transport human contraband across the Mexican border for the specific act of strikebreaking…
One wonders when the schools lovingly teach about César Chávez do they include that César fought against illegally entering the United States of America?
Steve Sailor further reports that, in 1969, Chávez led a march to the Mexican border to protest illegal immigration. Joining him were Sen. Walter Mondale and Martin Luther King’s successor as head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Ralph Abernathy.
Or again one wonders if the tales are ever told of Chávez’s organization The United Farm Workers that picketed INS offices to demand closure of the border. Chávez also [reported] on illegal alien scabs to la migra.
Columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr. reported in the Arizona Republic, “César Chávez, a labor leader intent on protecting union membership, was as effective a surrogate for the INS as ever existed. Indeed, Chávez and the United Farm Workers Union (UFW) he headed routinely reported, to the INS, for deportation, suspected illegal immigrants who served as strikebreakers or refused to unionize.”
According to Sailor, like today’s Minutemen, UFW staffers under the command of Chávez’s brother Manuel patrolled the Arizona-Mexico border to keep out illegal aliens. Unlike the well-behaved Minutemen, however, Chávez’s boys sometimes beat up intruders.
Today’s protest stands in complete opposition of what it is to be a freedom loving and law abiding American and only ignorance of the past and ignorance of American traditions would allow so many to openly lend support to the continuing criminal enterprise of smuggling people into the United States and those people setting up squatter rights as they claim this land for their home country by using our laws and our rights to help facilitate their invasion of this once sovereign nation.
For Americans that believe that it is too late to do anything to save America do not lose heart this issue was effectively dealt with before by President Dwight Eisenhower and it can be done again if you show your willingliness to fight for your country by voting for leadership that will protect America’s sovereignty.
Unlike the current sentiment everything is not free in America. There is a heavy cost being paid for this present illegal alien invasion, César Chávez knew it as all working Americans know it.
As illegal aliens and their supporters wave their flags of Mexico and America proudly this day, the irony is César Chávez would be ashamed of this day as he would be ashamed of the people who celebrate it!
