Another immigration legalization rally held in Atlanta - 01/06/10

Associated Press/Harry Weber/[[October 7, 2006]]/ link

...Six months after 50,000 immigrants and their supporters marched in downtown Atlanta to protest legislation that cracks down on illegal immigrants, the same organizers rallied with a much smaller but similarly vocal crowd...."We want to open the door," said one of the pro immigration rally organizers, Teodoro Maus, 'former Mexican consul in Atlanta. "How they do it is a matter of negotiation."

Maus had harsh words for the small group of protesters with their bullhorns telling them to get out of the U.S.' "I think they are xenophobic," he said. "They are racists and they are hiding their racism in 'legal or not legal.'"

Also quotes a protester as denying that he's a racist and saying in effect that some of his best friends are Mexicans. Obviously, some people need to learn how to respond to MSM setups designed to make them look bad:

One of the protesters, hot sauce company owner Jerry Gualtieri, insisted he is not a racist. "I have very good Mexican friends," Gualtieri, wearing a belt buckle emblazoned with a Confederate flag, said. Just as he spoke, a fellow protester walked by with a sign that read, "Mexico is not our friend."

Obviously, there's a difference between "Mexico" and "Mexicans" (and, "Mexican-Americans".)

Asked about the sign, Gualtieri said there's nothing contradictory about his position."It's because 85 percent of the illegals happen to be Mexican," he said. "We're a nation of laws."

A better response would have been pointing out Mexico's aggressive attempts to send us people and their aggressive attempts to influence U.S. policy. Maybe Weber could have learned something.Note that in past articles the AP has failed to note Maus' previous affiliation, but that's changed for at least this and one other recent article.

Immigration march organizers have foreign links - 08/15/08

March 24 Georgia boycott - 09/03/06

One of the organizers was Teodoro Maus, a former Mexican consul general.

From Immigration rallies draw thousands nationwide 3/14/06, Associated Press:

Immigration march organizers have foreign links - 09/01/06

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.

Links between the Democratic Party and the Mexican government - 04/22/06

Many Democratic politicians and pundits supported the recent illegal immigration marches, and some Democratic politicians appeared at some of the rallies or even helped organize some of them.

And, some other organizers of the rallies have various kinds of links to the government of Mexico.

While that's not enough to claim that the Democratic Party has direct links to the Mexican government, they are clearly part of the same network. And, that should be disturbing to the millions of more moderate members of that party.

Here are the current known links:

Former Mexican consul organized the Georgia boycott - 04/03/06

Welcome readers of the Washington Post's "Town's-Eye View of Immigration Debate" (link). There are a few things missing from that report, the most important being that the boycott the WaPo mentions was organized by a former Mexican Consul General. The WaPo's Peter Slevin says:

Proponents of more generous accommodations for illegal immigrants staged a one-day economic boycott on March 24 that shuttered businesses and boosted morale.

Did Slevin know who was involved in that boycott? Shouldn't he had mentioned it if he knows?

Georgia illegal aliens protest organized by former Mexican consul - 03/24/06

[See the first update for more]

Tim Molloy of the AP offers a roundup of the recent protest by illegal aliens who are demanding rights to which they aren't entitled in the falsely-titled "Immigration Rallies Draw Thousands Nationwide". It contains the following:
Teodoro Maus, an organizer of the Georgia protest, estimated as many as 80,000 Hispanics did not show up for work.
Molloy or his editors are apparently too shy to tell us that Maus isn't just a member of the "Coordinating Committee of Community Leaders". He's also a former Mexican consul. As with other professions, whether anyone is truly ever a "former" consul is unclear.

Here's an earlier AP article that doesn't disclose his former job. And, here's more on some recent statements he made here.

However, for much more on Maus, see this:
In 1996, Maus joined with local Hispanic activists and turned his guns on Norman Bingham, Cobb County Board of Education Chairman. Bingham, you see, had the temerity to exercise his First Amendment free speech rights in Maus' fiefdom, by stating that Latino construction workers were "uneducated" and "probably illegal aliens". After demanding Bingham's ouster, Maus allowed the chairman to retain his position, after of course recanting and issuing a two-page apology. That same year Maus attacked a Smyrna, Georgia law requiring all commercial signs be in English.

In 1999, Maus agitated for the issuance of drivers' licenses to illegal aliens, but in this case the Georgia legislature failed to carry out the consul's edict. That same year, on a Spanish-language radio station, Consul Maus ordered local Hispanics to punish Georgia companies which, in Maus' view, "mistreat or ignore Hispanic customers".

After stepping down as Consul General, Maus stayed in the U.S. as a private consultant and then president of the Mexican-American Business Chamber. Now [2002] Maus is slated to move to Washington as the Mexican government's liaison on environmental affairs...
Will anyone in the Bush administration object to a foreign government possibly agitating their citizens who are in our country illegally? Or, will Bush congratulate Fox when they meet next week?

UPDATE: Here's much more on Teodoro Maus. And, here are additional links between the organizers of other immigration marches and foreign forces, including the Mexican government, Mexico's PRD Party (the one to which AMLO belongs), and the Irish government. In fact, all three major Mexican political parties were involved in various of the Chicago illegal immigration marches. The ACLU, MALDEF, SPLC, and AFSC have indirect links to the Mexican government. And, here are more links between the Democratic Party and the Mexican government.
