Audio clips of the true agenda of Illegal Alien Lobby
Agendas of MEChA, La Raza, MALDEF, and Southwest Voter Registration Projects
This is a compilation of live, recorded statements by elected U.S. politicians, college professors, and pro-illegal alien activists whose objective is to take control of our country "by vote if possible and violence if necessary!"
The speakers listed below are not the "lunatic fringe". They are some of the most powerful Latino leaders and politicians in America, whose allegiance is to foreigners of their ethnic group, not to the United States. They seek political power and realize the way to get it is to flood America with legal and illegal immigrants from their ethnic "tribe". Simply by demographics, they will dilute the vote of American citizens and replace our American culture. "The Third World" is at your doorstep and anxious to present you with the bill as they jump on "the entitlement bandwagon." If you think this is an exaggeration, you have only to witness California as a forewarning of where our entire country is headed.
A very sinister message being taught in many Ethnic Studies programs across this country. While MEChA and LA Raza, the two largest Latino organizations on college and high school campuses preach hatred for America, the liberal media ignores them, as the Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie and other Foundations contribute millions to promote their anarchy. Pro-illegal immigration activists would have you believe "illegals" are coming here only to seek work and a better life. MEChA, LA Raza, MALDEF and the Southwest Voter Registration Project have much darker agendas. Listen to the following audio clips to understand their message.
"We call things racism just to get attention. We reduce complicated problems to racism, not because it is racism, but because it works."
--- Alfredo Gutierrez, political consultant, as quoted by Richard de Uriarte, The Phoenix Gazette, March 14, 1992 (quoted in The ProEnglish Advocate, 1st quarter, 2002).

The first 15 audio clips above demonstrate the "Pro-Mexico, Anti-America" agenda of "Pro-Immigration" activists and politicians. Rather than encouraging new immigrants and illegal aliens to assimilate into the American culture, they instead seek to "set up a nation within a nation"; one that they can control by keeping immigrants out of the mainstream. They seek "raw political power" with the goal of open borders. Many helped to found and still support such openly racist, anti-American organizations like MEChA, LA RAZA, MALDEF and the Southwest Voter Registration Project. Their goals are to re-take the American Southwest, not by war, but rather by uncontrolled migration. If you think it's not a problem in your state, it will be eventually, as you become a citizen of "MEXAMERICA".
"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 it." -- Former Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo at the National Council of La Raza (The Race) Soiree, Chicago on July 23, 1997
The true agenda of The Race Industry
Harvard Professor Samuel P. Huntington, Chairman of the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies - a self-described "old-fashioned Democrat" - warned in his April 2004 article, "The Hispanic Challenge":
"Demographically, socially, and culturally, the reconquista (re-conquest) of the Southwest United States by Mexican immigrants is well underway... No other immigrant group in U.S. history has asserted or could assert a historical claim to U.S. territory. Mexicans and Mexican Americans can and do make that claim."
In December 2004, the Mexican government published a guide advising illegal Mexican nationals on how to safely cross the U.S. border. In 2001, Ernesto Ruffo Appel, Mexico’s Commissioner for Northern Border Affairs, reportedly told potential illegal Mexican migrants:
"If the border patrol agent finds you, try again."
Other Mexican government officials have said:
"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 it."
--1997, Ernest Zedillo, former President of Mexico, in Chicago.
"We are practicing La Reconquista in California."
--1998, Jose Pescador Osuna, then-Consul General of Mexico, in California.
"We are Mexicans that live in our territories and we are Mexicans that live in other territories. In reality, we are 120 million people that live together and are working together to construct a nation."
--2004, Vicente Fox, President of Mexico, in Chicago.
Leaders of Mexican ancestry in the United States have made similar statements:
"As goes the Latino population will go the state of California, and as goes the state of California will go the United States of America. My friends, the stakes are big. This is a fight worth making."
--1995, Henry Cisneros, former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary, at a Hispanic conference at UC Riverside.
"Eventually, we are going to take over all the political institutions of California."
--1998, Mario Obledo, co-founder of MALDEF and California Secretary of Health & Welfare under Gov. Jerry Brown. (He added that California will soon become an "Hispanic state" and that anyone who does not like Mexicans "should go back to Europe.")
"Mexico is recovering the territories yielded to the United States by means of migratory tactics."
-- 2001, Elena Poniatowska, a prize-winning Mexican novelist who has taught at Harvard, Yale and Princeton.
"A secessionist movement is not something that you can put away and say it is never going to happen in the United States. Time and history change."
--2002, Armando Navarro, professor at the University of California-Riverside.
"The U.S. Southwest will secede and may rejoin Mexico... No nation's borders have been permanent. Throughout history, nations and empires rise and fall."
--2002, Charles Truxillo. professor at the University of New Mexico. (Who also said secession of the U.S. Southwest is an "inevitability" because of continued high Hispanic immigration.)
"We don't need no stinking green cards."
--Benicio Silva of UC Berkeley declared that having to show them at the border was a "violation of our human rights" because "Aztlan is ours and the white man is the invader."
"They say we're 'Latinizing' Los Angeles! Don't you love it? We are fighting to build a new Mestizo nation." "We are here again, we are millions and millions, and the aging white Americans are not making babies, we've got to get ready to govern!"
--Jose Angel Gutierrez, long-time University of Texas faculty member
Rudy Acuña warns that Chicano youth "bring the possibility of violence" to the Chicano movement, and the "Brown Berets" tell "gringos" that "the streets will run red with the blood of tyrants, who have murdered us for so long."
Amnestied and naturalized illegal aliens would be able to vote in U.S. elections. Their extended family members who migrate here also could become future voters in the U.S. "Anchor baby" children born in the U.S. to illegal alien parents also are able to vote.
Many Mexican-Americans are patriotic and have no political agenda, but they and their U.S.-born children indeed can be mobilized by Mexico to vote according to Mexico’s interests. Juan Hernandez, U.S.-born member of Vicente Fox’s cabinet, has remarked:
"We are betting that the Mexican American population in the United States... will think Mexico first."

Lies that the illegal alien lobby perpetuates:
Lie #1: Illegal aliens take jobs Americans won't do.
Truth: Americans are willing to do most jobs at a fair wage, but they won't do those jobs at "slave wages" or minimum wage. Thus, American workers are constantly replaced by illegal aliens willing to work for half or a third of what American workers once received. These jobs that once afforded a middle class life style now only offer illegal alien workers poverty level wages, resulting in the shrinkage of the "American Middle Class" and the enormous growth of an ever-increasing "underclass" dependent on government entitlements.
Lie #2: Illegal aliens contribute more to the economy and tax base than they take.
Truth: A large portion of illegal aliens work for cash "under the table" paying no taxes. The great majority of illegals make $6-$8 per hour, ($12,480 - $16,640 per year). At such income levels, not only is there no tax due, but they also qualify for the "earned income tax credit". In California, public education alone costs over $7,500 per pupil. Multiply that times 2-4 children, add the costs of free school breakfast and lunch, free medical care, food stamps, housing subsidies, and other entitlement "give-aways". Harvard Professor George Borjas estimates illegal immigration costs the U.S. 70 billion dollars per year and Californians $1,300 per household annually in additional taxes. The Center for Immigration Studies estimate that the average Mexican illegal alien will use $55,200 more in public services during his lifetime than he pays in taxes.
Lie #3: Without illegal alien farm labor, a head of lettuce would cost $3.00.
Truth: It already costs $3.00. You just make a $1.00 down payment at the grocery store. The government finances the other two dollars until tax time, when the additional $2.00 balance is extracted from your wallet in the form of higher taxes. The Agriculture industry gets cheap labor and higher profits, while shifting all the social costs of illegal immigrant labor to the American tax payer.
Lie #4: Most illegal aliens come here only to seek work and are law-abiding "citizens".
Truth: In Los Angeles, as of January, 2004, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide (which total 1,200 to 1,500) target illegal aliens. Up to two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants (17,000) are for illegal aliens. A confidential California Department of Justice study reported in 1995 that 60 percent of the 20,000-strong 18th Street Gang in southern California is illegal; police officers say the proportion is actually much greater. The bloody gang collaborates with the Mexican Mafia, the dominant force in California prisons, on complex drug-distribution schemes, extortion, and drive-by assassinations, and commits an assault or robbery every day in L.A. County. The gang has grown dramatically over the last two decades by recruiting recently arrived youngsters, most of them illegal, from Central America and Mexico.
