I am tired of being called a racist!

I have had about as much name calling as I can tolerate. Because of my views on illegal immigration, numerous times I have been called a racist, and it is starting to make me mad.

This country is called the United States of America for a reason. We are supposed to be a nation of united states, held together by the common bond of our laws, our heritage and, most importantly, our language. Is it too much to ask that we expect those who wish to immigrate to this country learn our language, respect our heritage, and obey our laws?

Yet whenever we have people who violate our immigration laws by entering this country illegally, we are expected to open our arms and just welcome them, give them benefits, and forgive their crimes against this country. When we, as citizens, speak out against this and demand that our laws be upheld and these illegal aliens deported and denied benefits, we are called racists, most of the time by Hispanic rights advocacy groups.

It has nothing at all to do with race. If every single illegal alien in this country, all 10-20 million of them, were of English, Italian, Dutch, Swiss, or German descent, I would still want them gone. I would want them gone because they chose to enter our country through other than legal means and therefore have absolutely no right to ask, let alone, demand any rights or privileges.

However, the fact of the matter is that a good percentage of these illegal aliens are from Hispanic countries south of the border, not all of them, but a good percentage. It is only logical that a good percentage of our focus on illegal aliens will be on our southern border and the Hispanics that chose to cross it illegally. It does not mean we are racist, especially when we give out more immigrant visas every year than any other country in the world. If we were racist and xenophobic, why would we be so willing to accept so many legal immigrants?

The same can not be said about a good percentage of those who chose to enter this country illegally, or those who support open borders and uninhibited immigration. So I would like to share some quotes by those who support the concept of open borders.

I would like to start with Jose Angel Gutierrez. He is a professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. Mr. Gutierrez stated,

"We have an aging white America...They are dying...They are shitting 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."

MECha, is the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán which promotes Chicano unity and political activism. The Spiritual Plan of Aztlan outlines their goals. It states,

"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. ... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. ... We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada." (For the race everything. For those outside the race nothing.)

MECha goes on to proclaim,

"Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we...should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot...Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas ... It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny."

Miguel Perez, of Cal State-Northridge's MECha chapter is quoted as saying,

"The ultimate ideology is the liberation of Aztlan. Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established, ethnic cleansing would commence: Non-Chicanos would have to be expelled -- opposition groups would be quashed because you have to keep power."

Then there is also the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, or MALDEF. Mario Obledo, the co-founder of MALDEF once stated,

“California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.”

Those are some of the organizations who support immigration reform and open borders. There are also some members of local and state governments here in California that are blatantly pro-Hispanic, anti-white.

Art Torres is a former state senator and the current chairman of the California Democratic Party. When California attempted to pass Proposition 187, Mr. Torres stated,

“Remember: 187 is the last gasp of white America in California. Understand that. And people say to me on the Senate floor when I was in the Senate, 'Why do you fight so hard for affirmative action programs?' And I tell my white colleagues, 'because you're going to need them.'"

Richard Alotorre is a former Los Angeles City councilman and he once said,

"Because our numbers are growing ... [some are] afraid that we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They are right, we will take them over, and we are not going to go away – we are here to stay, and we are saying 'ya basta' (enough!)."

Antonio Villagarosa is the current mayor of Los Angeles, and he is quoted as saying,

“It's not enough to elect Latino leadership if they're supporting legislation that denies the undocumented they don't belong in office friends.“

Fabian Nunez is the current speaker of the California State Assembly. He said,

“And those rednecks that are out there making decisions for the betterment of their communities will think twice before they push forward against our community...”

Lastly there are two final quotes, the first of which is by Armando Navarro a professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Riverside. He stated,

"Ladies and gentlemen, what [the displacement of whites, blacks, and Asians by Hispanics in California] means is a transfer of power, it means control, it means whose going to influence. And it is the young people, the people who are now moving to develop an agenda for the twenty first century. They are really going to be in a position to really make the promise of what the Chicano movement was all about in terms of self-determination, in terms of empowerment, and even in the terms of the idea of an Aztlan!"

The last is by Augustin Cebeda of the Brown Berets of Aztlan, a Chicano activist group. Mr. Cebada left little to the imagination when it comes to what the goals are of many of the illegal immigrants to this country,

"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."

After reading the quotes of these individuals, some of whom hold positions of authority, positions where they are teaching their ideals to our children, do you still feel that I am a racist when all I want is the enforcement of our laws? Am I asking too much when I want the immigrants to this country to assimilate and learn our language and respect our culture and history.

I am not asking that these people forget their own heritage, but as a courtesy of being allowed to live in these United States of America they should at least be expected to respect and honor the laws, the culture, and the history of ours as well. If that is too much to ask, then I have but one thing to say, and I quote Theodore Roosevelt,

"From the melting pot of life in this free land all men and woman of all nations who come hither emerge as Americans and nothing else. They must have renounced completely and without reserve all allegiance to the land from which they or their forefathers came. And it is a binding duty on every citizen of this country in every important crisis to act solidly with all his fellow Americans, having regard only to the honor and interest of America, treating every other nation purely on its conduct in that crisis, without reference to his ancestral predilections or antipathies. If he does not act, he is false to the teachings and lives of Washington and Lincoln; he is not entitled to any part or lot in our country and he should be sent out of it."
