Here is a little video from the 8/27/06 Save Our State protest in the illegal alien sanctuary city of Maywood.

[read Something is Wrong with Immigration Protests]

The first clip features the brown supremacist Augustin Cebada and his cowardly sidekick Naui [old video], hiding behind a cardboard sign. Augustin is the Brown Beret idiot in the Aztec Al-Qeada video telling white people to go back to Plymouth Rock.

Of course this racist scumbag tries to have me arrested.

Then, FOX news 11 interviews a Mexica-Movement goon. I see this guy around a lot and he’s always saying that he’s going to kill me. It’s funny when he tells the reporter that he’s the Mexican Revolutionary Emiliano Zapata and then spells Emiliano incorrectly and can barely spell Zapata.

Augustin Cebada has a radio show on KPFK 90.7 called “La Causa.” Here’s a Windows media audio file (Courtesy of Lone Wolf) where he talks about the protest in Maywood.

Presented below is a speech given in Washington D.C, in 2004 by Richard D. Lamm, a Democrat who served as governor of Colorado from 75-87. The controversial speech was satirical but ominous and inteneded to spark debate. It has resonated with many who are troubled by the effects of out of control “multiculturalism” in our society. It’s been a popular post on many Internet sights. Our country isn’t a melting pot anymore. It’s a pressure cooker that in time will explode unless action is taken to vent the steam.

I Have A Plan To Destroy America

snopes.com

I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that America is too smug, too “white bread,” too self-satisfied, too rich, let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that “An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.” Here is my plan:

I. We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour Martin Lipset, put it this way:

The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malasia, Lebanon - all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with its Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.

II. I would then invent “multiculturalism” and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal: That there are no cultural differences that are important. I would declare it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rate is only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out-of-bounds.

III. We can make the United States a “Hispanic Quebec” without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly:

The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentrically, and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.

I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences rather than Americans, emphasizing their similarities……

BALTIMORE - It has been about 10 years since Ricardo Espinoza Perez paid $450 to smugglers to help guide him from Mexico to a new life in the United States, where he worked to raise money to bring his wife and two small children across the border. But his hope turned to horror in May 2004, when his son and daughter were gruesomely murdered, along with their young cousin. Perez’s brother, Policarpio Espinoza, 24, and nephew, Adan Canela, 19, were charged with the crimes.

The men were convicted last month of murdering them, and police believe other family members may have played a role in the murders. But Perez insists they wouldn’t have done it.

“I never got in conflict with my brother and my nephew,” Perez said in a recent interview with The Associated Press.

Now, with two relatives facing life in prison, two others facing deportation and his own immigration status in limbo, Perez said he is scared the killers remain at large.

Detective Irvin Bradley said police are still asking questions, and hope relatives will resist intimidation within the family.

“This is a family with secrets, and they know and they keep it amongst themselves,” Bradley said.

Perez said he would like to remain in the U.S. with his wife and their new baby daughter until he knows was really happened to his two older children, 8-year-old Lucero and 9-year-old Ricardo Jr.

Ernestine Fobbs, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the family’s status is pending but declined to comment further.

Two other relatives were ordered to return to Mexico after their immigration status came out amid publicity over the murders.

The fact that the family was brought into the country by smugglers has fueled speculation that they could have been connected to the killings. But Perez, 35, maintains they had no motive because he didn’t owe them money and the crimes happened about seven years after he and his family entered the country.

“I paid for everybody,” he said.

Sound familiar? Well sort of but in reverse. More drama courtesy of open borders and unenforced laws.

LA mom is legal, child isn’t so he is living in legal limbo

San Jose Mercury News

LOS ANGELES - In search of his mother, 8-year-old Jonathan Martinez journeyed with his teenage cousin from El Salvador to the Arizona-Mexico border in late 2004.

U.S. Border Patrol agents caught Jonathan trying to cross the desert and detained him for several days before turning him over to his mother, whom he hadn’t seen for four years.

Since then, he’s learned English, joined a soccer team and generally embraced life as an American fifth grader. Except Jonathan isn’t here legally - and on Monday a judge may order him deported back to El Salvador.

Though his mother has been living and working legally near Los Angeles, a wrinkle in immigration law doesn’t let her apply to keep him here.

“I don’t want to go back because I’ll be alone,” said Jonathan, now a busybody 10 year old.

His case illustrates a growing problem with the federal program known as “temporary protective status” under which Jonathan’s mother is staying in the United States: what to do with thousands of kids from Central America who come to the United States illegally to be reunited with their parents…….

El Paso Times

Juarez — Two Juárez men living in the United States as undocumented immigrants are now accused of the rape and murder of a 17-year-old high-school student kidnapped in 2001, and are suspected in 16 other sexual murders of Juárez women in the past six years, the Chihuahua state attorney general said Thursday in Juárez.

During the years, various theories have attributed many of the murders to the drug cartels, large gangs of men and even international organ traffickers.

Now, Mexican officials allege that Edgar Alvarez Cruz and Jose Francisco Granados de la Paz acted alone.

Alvarez Cruz, who was captured in Denver last month and deported to Juárez on Wednesday, and Granados de la Paz, who is being held in a federal prison in the United States on immigration charges, are accused of killing Mayra Juliana Reyes Solis, whose body was found along with seven others in an abandoned cotton field in Juárez in 2001.

Alvarez Cruz was charged by a Juárez judge on Thursday. Officials are still working on connecting the men to the other murders and on extraditing Granados de la Paz.

A third man, Alejandro Delgado Valles, went along on the kidnapping sprees but apparently did not participate and is collaborating with the police as a ‘protected witness,’ Chihuahua Attorney General Patricia Gonzalez said.

Alvarez Cruz and Granados de la Paz are suspects in the eight cotton field murders, in two cases where women’s bodies were found at the Cristo Negro mountain, and in several other cases.

Alvarez Cruz’s family has claimed that the 30-year-old father and undocumented construction worker is innocent.

Washington Times

A congressional mandate for new identification at the Canadian and Mexican borders amounts to an ‘honor system’ that will give terrorists speedy access into the United States, conservatives and liberals said yesterday.

The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative that goes into effect next year requires a passport or a new identification card for Americans traveling across the border.

Homeland Security officials are pushing for a People Access Security Service or PASS card with a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip that can be read at the border as the driver speeds by a reader. New passports also will contain RFID chips.

Critics of the program say information from the RFID chips can be stolen easily and will lead to a spike in identity thefts, and that cloned or stolen cards can be obtained easily by terrorists and illegal aliens.

‘When you’re going through the border at 30 miles per hour, all they know is that your card went through; they don’t know if you were driving,’ said Jim Harper, director of information policy studies at the Cato Institute. ‘Whoever heard of a security system run on the honor system?’

Mexico City — Mexican President-elect Felipe Calderón said Thursday that he is committed to winning broad immigration reform in the U.S. Congress before President Bush leaves office in January 2009.

Calderón, who spoke with Bush by telephone on Wednesday, said he believes the White House is ready for action. ‘We will work intensely over the next two years to arrive at a concrete agreement,’ he told foreign journalists.

EL ALBERTO, MEXICO â?? “Run! They’re on our tails!” shouted a man in a ski mask as he led 15 people down a steep ravine and into a thorn-infested thicket.

Gunshots pierced the night air. Sirens wailed. Then came a voice, sounding like the Border Patrol. “Don’t cross the river!” someone yelled in a heavy accent. “Go back to Mexico where you belong!”

Welcome to one of Mexico’s strangest tourist attractions:

A park where visitors pay $15 to hike across fields and through treacherous ravines, a grueling experience aimed at simulating an illegal journey across the U.S.-Mexico border.

“We want this to be an exercise in awareness,” said Alfonso Martinez, who acts as the chief smuggler at EcoAlberto Park in central Mexico. “It’s in honor of all the people who have gone in search of the American Dream.”

The park, funded in part by the Mexican government, compares crossing the border to an “extreme sport” and tells participants that they, too, can “trick the Migra,” slang for the Border Patrol.

Real-life agents are not amused.

“If this is about training, obviously that’s not anything like what they will experience when they cross the border,” said Xavier Rios, a Border Patrol spokesman in Washington, D.C., pointing out that most migrant journeys last for many days, not hours.

He also criticized the organizers for re-enacting an illegal and dangerous activity â?? and profiting off that.

“This doesn’t seem that it’s conducted in an appropriate manner,” he said.

Martinez and others are undaunted, saying that the experience gives people a better understanding of the risks migrants take.

Every year, some 500,000 Mexicans cross illegally into the U.S., a perilous journey that has claimed more than 2,000 lives over the past decade. Many die of heat exhaustion, while others drown in the Rio Grande.

You’re Despicable

The American Daily

On Wednesday, August 30, 2006, at an immigration conference chaired by Senator Wayne Allard in Denver, Colorado, a high profile pro-illegal alien advocate looked up at me with seething anger in her swollen eyes, “You’re despicable!” She ripped the sign out of my hands, “STOP THE INVASION: DEPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS.”

She sobbed to the press about her illegal aliens being outlawed with Coloradoâ??s new immigration laws, â??This system is a tragedy, and people are suffering.â?

What caused her outburst of yelling and violence? While she and others for â??Immigrant Rightsâ? presented a news conference to counter Senator Allardâ??s, I took a lesson out of her playbook from my experiences on the 21st Century Paul Revere Ride this past summer. While my group toured 48 states, busting our rear ends for 20,000 miles on motorcycles (my butt still aches), we always presented a permit to speak, but illegal alien advocates shouted us down from Los Angeles to Boston.

Her vitriolic words caught me by surprise, â??Youâ??re despicable!â?

Iâ??m going to tell you whatâ??s â??despicableâ?. Itâ??s despicable that Mexico, China, Cuba, Africa, India, Central and South America and other countries ship millions of their poorest, most illiterate, dispossessed citizens along with MS-13 gangs, drugs and diseases into our successful country…..

Hilton Head, SC is offering a salary incentive to employees who learn Spanish and become bilingual. Even though the official language of the state has been designated English since 1987. HELLO, is anybody home upstairs??

Language law sends clear signal
20-year-old edict makes English official tongue

The Island Packet

Stuck in what is likely a very uncomfortable position between the official state spider (the Carolina wolf spider) and the fumes of the official state tobacco museum (that’s the South Carolina Tobacco Museum in Mullins) sits the English language.

Or, at least, a 20-year-old provision that makes English the official language of South Carolina, a supreme title the language has yet to earn on the national level.

It’s a symbolic designation, with no legal requirements or penalties attached to it to punish non-English speakers, no more than a resident can be fined for improperly performing a square dance (the official American folk dance) or for trampling a lettered olive (South Carolina’s official shell).

But what it does represent — lawmakers and a political expert say — is a desire to send a clear message to foreigners coming into the state: We speak English in the Palmetto State, and you should too if you want to get along.

Though English became the state’s official language in 1987, the issue echoes in a debate that has emerged on Hilton Head Island in recent weeks over a new salary incentive the town soon will offer to employees who learn to speak Spanish.

The main impetus for the $1,200 annual salary bonus, town officials say, is to help handle the area’s growing Hispanic population, especially for emergency crews who need to be able to communicate quickly with people in distress. But employees in other town offices, such as building permits, could take advantage of the incentive.

The program, which won’t go into effect until late fall or early winter, agitated a hornet’s nest of criticism from many residents, some who extrapolated the idea so far as to suggest the town is catering to an illegal-immigrant population instead of facing the problem head on……

Seven year old Saul Arellano is headed to LA “where he planned to talk about his family’s experiences” at the National Latino Congress. This poor child is slowly being psycologicaly scarred for life. Used as a sympathy card in a loser take all poker game by his desperate illegal alien mother. The camaras will be rolling and the tears will be flowing at this massive photo op meant to tug at the heart strings of America. Kleenex will be offered at the door.

Mexican immigration activist living at US church sends son to Latino conference

International Herald Tribune

The 7-year-old son of an immigration activist who has sought refuge in a church to avoid deportation to Mexico left Friday evening for the National Latino Congress in Los Angeles, where he planned to talk about his family’s experiences.

Saul Arellano is an American citizen, but his mother, Elvira, crossed into the United States illegally in 1997. They have lived in an approximately 10-foot by 10-foot (3-meter by 3-meter) room at the Adalberto United Methodist Church since mid-August.

Mexican immigrant Elvira Arellano, 31, was to surrender to federal authorities for deportation Aug. 15, but instead came to the small storefront church sandwiched between a beauty salon and bank in Chicago’s heavily Puerto Rican Humboldt Park neighborhood.

Saul is being accompanied to Los Angeles by his “adopted grandmother” Emma Lozano, the executive director of the Chicago immigration-rights group Centro Sin Fronteras, and is to return Sunday. Lozano said she hopes to garner more legal support and media attention on the trip.

“This country has benefited from the sweat and labor of the undocumented,” Lozano said Friday…….

Whether everybody is comfortable with this massive culture change or not, it is happening at warp speed. America is changing and the end result will be something very different then what we know. Discussing and yes even debating the topic is healthy and needed for Americans of all ethnic backgrounds to absorb and understand the transformation that is taking place before our eyes.

A nueva generation poised to shape pop culture

www.miami.com

In the 1960s and ’70s, it was baby boomers with rock and disco, sexual liberation and political activism. In the ’80s and ’90s, it was African Americans and hip-hop that transformed the way we sang, danced, talked and dressed.

And now, at the start of the 21st century, it’s a new generation of Hispanics who are poised to become the next major cultural drivers.

While the political spotlight has been on Hispanic immigrants, social scholars and purveyors of media and entertainment are already focusing on their children, an exploding generation of bilingual, bicultural Hispanics who are rapidly emerging as a force that will affect music, television, movies, fashion, advertising, slang, and just about everything else in American pop culture.

Because they grew up in the United States fluent in two languages and two cultures, young American-born Hispanics — who often call themselves Latinos, rather than Hispanics — form a kind of bridge. Not only are they Latinizing the American mainstream, they are Americanizing what it means to be Hispanic in the United States.

”What Americans and even Latinos need to understand is that there’s a movement, and that movement is todos los Latinos that practice the traditions of where they’re from, but at the same time they have that American influence,” says Isis Velasquez, a 21-year-old student at the University of Florida.

DEMOGRAPHIC SHIFT

The movement is driven by numbers.

Second-generation Hispanics are the fastest-growing portion of this country’s largest minority, and by 2020 they will outnumber their immigrant parents. Their numbers are increasing more quickly than those of their white or black counterparts in the younger age groups that shape culture.

One in five people in the United States younger than 18 — the age group over which marketers salivate — are Hispanic.

”Our influence is going to be felt,” says film director Franc Reyes, whose movie Illegal Tender, a thriller with a Hispanic cast, will be released by Universal this fall. “You can’t put that many people under a rug and say they don’t exist before some of us start screaming — artistically or whatever way.”

But it’s not just about numbers.

Whether it’s the beat of reggaeton booming across America or the dark-haired, dark-eyed Mexican-American actress Eva Longoria becoming the hottest thing on Desperate Housewives, Hispanics are happening.

Forget the deportation, Elvira belongs in prison and her son belongs in Mexico with their relatives.

Little Saul does as he’s told and tries desperately to create tears for the cameras. The flag they gave him to hold is the icing on the cake.

Chicago Tribune

The U.S. government and Elvira Arellano’s legal team escalated their skirmish Thursday over an unusual federal lawsuit contending that to deport the undocumented immigrant would violate her young son’s rights.

Attorneys for 7-year-old Saul Arellano say his constitutional rights would be violated if he is forced to return to Mexico with his mother even though he is a U.S. citizen by birth.

Prosecutors detailed their counterarguments in a motion filed Thursday to dismiss the case, insisting that Saul would not lose legal rights by his mother’s deportation.

Arellano has taken refuge in a Humboldt Park church since defying a government deportation order Aug. 15, creating a standoff that has generated international notoriety.

U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve said Saul Arellano’s lawsuit raises “novel issues.” Normally, illegal immigrants contest their own deportation orders instead of having their U.S. citizen children become plaintiffs, experts say.

Legal observers and advocates on both sides of the immigration debate are closely watching the lawsuit, which could affect the 3.1 million U.S. citizen children with at least one parent living here illegally. Some say the lawsuit is a long shot but could have political benefits.

Arellano said she does not want to take Saul to Mexico because she fears that he will return to the United States as she did: with no knowledge of English and little formal education. Arellano said she has never seriously considered leaving her son behind either.

Federal prosecutors, in their court filings Thursday, said allowing Arellano to stay in the U.S. because of her son would grant her a benefit that Congress never intended. They implied that Arellano was hypocritical in turning to the court after ignoring the government’s orders.

“Ms. Arellano should not be permitted to ignore the law and yet use the law through the means of a legal fiction by challenging the order through her son,” prosecutors argued.
