Immigration march organizers have foreign links

Many of those who attended the recent immigration marches are foreign citizens who are here illegally. But, it doesn't stop there. For instance, one rally organizer is a former Mexican consul general and another is an official with a Mexican political party.

Not surprisingly, the MSM has barely mentioned such links. The reader is strongly encouraged to contact media sources and suggest that instead of simply reporting what goes on at future marches they do some journalism and look into any links between organizers and foreign governments or institutions.

If you see any MSM reports that fail to report such links, please contact the reporter and suggest that they tell the whole truth next time. And, if you have a blog, publicize that reporter's omission of such a key fact.

Here are some of the links, there are probably more:

1. One of the organizers of the March boycott/rally in Georgia [1] was Teodoro Maus, a former Mexican consul general.

2. Jorge Mujica is a spokesman for the March 10 Committee [2], which organized the Chicago rally on that date. He's also an official with Mexico's PRD Party ("Party for Democratic Revolution"). [3] [4]. He has some involvement either as a leader or a spokesman of the newly-formed umbrella group called the "National Alliance for Immigrant Rights". [5] [6] [7]

3. The group that organized the March 10 rally in Chicago first met on Feb. 15. The two who convened the meeting were an organizer in a Service Employees International Union local and Omar Lopez, who "serves on the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, an advisory council to Mexican President Vicente Fox". [8] In April, Lopez spoke out about the ICE show raids of IFCO Systems. [9]

4. One of the sponsors [10] of one of the May 1 Los Angeles marches was CHIRLA ("Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles") [11], a group that has allegedly collaborated with the Mexican government. They're also a member of the We Are America alliance with several other groups. [12] [13] [14]. They are also in the National Capital Immigration Coalition with the ICIRR, also a member of the WAAA.

5. The Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform (ILIR) is partly funded by the Irish government. It's unknown whether they've helped organize any of the larger immigration marches, but in addition to minor things such as taking part in St. Patrick's Day parades wearing t-shirts supporting legalization [15], and at least providing t-shirts to two participants in a March Los Angeles rally [16], they've organized trips to Washington which were greeted by major politicians. [17] Other activities are listed on their press page. [18]

Please contact news sources that might cover the upcoming marches and suggest that they do a little journalism instead of simply acting as transcription service for groups that might be linked to foreign governments or foreign political parties.

[17] The 3/10/06 article "McCain and Hillary Rally Illegals" has more on their funding by the Irish government and includes the following: "More than 2,400 undocumented Irish immigrants and their supporters rallied in Washington yesterday in support of an immigration reform bill that would allow them to remain in the U.S. legally." This report further noted that "Senators Kennedy, John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer addressed the demonstrators, who wore white T-shirts with the slogan 'Legalize the Irish.'"

Mexico needs to be reminded that interference of this kind in our politics can be regarded as an act of war, and that they are hopelessly weak.
