    To protect strong unions and better pay for legal immigrants and citizens.


    http://spectator.org/articles/59956/cesar-chavez-anti-immigration-his-union-core


    Cesar Chavez wanted desperately to protect his union from illegal border crossings by Mexican “strikebreakers.” At core, Chavez was demanding — like property owners along the border today — that the sovereignty of the United States be respected. Those who remember Chavez recall him vividly as a committed Chicano activist who neither minced words nor shield away from acting on his beliefs. And in doing so, he put himself firmly on record against illegal immigration.


    Another Article. Huffington post, to add to these claims.

    http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/5065654


    Chavez brought up good points and his worries seem to be coming to fruition. Good decent paying jobs and strong unions are going away as more and more companies outsource to undocumented workers or as Chavez called them "Scabs and Strike Breakers."

    Cesar Chavez was, obviously, a despicable racist...NEXT!

    “Chavez ordered union members to call the Immigration and Naturalization Service and report illegal immigrants who were working in the fields so that they could be deported.”

    Im confused, was someone claiming he wasn't? Or is this just another douchebag Republican insult/call out thread pretending that this was something the "libs" were claiming so the Low IQ Republicans can try and claim some kind of victory in a non existent battle to feel better about themselves?

    If there's another thread somewhere where people here are doing it I haven't seen it so please disregard this.

    But if their isn't then its just stupid.

    Its like this guy on Facebook that I used to work with who's always posting things like a picture of the flag with that caption "I refuse to apologize for saying God Bless America" and when I ask him who was asking him too he can't seem to come up with an answer.

    The other one is where he claims that he's not embarrassed to be a Christian and won't bow to the persecution Christians are facing. When I ask him who is persecuting him he again has no answer.

    Republicans love to claim some kind of victory in fights that are only going on in their imaginations.

    I merely pointed out that even an Immigration activist like Cesar Chavez knew it was vital to keep a string border and strong immigration laws. :dontknow:

    So that would be a no then?

    Because when noone took the bait you then went out of your way to call out certain people as if they had claimed something different and you were disputing it

    I think with the current atmosphere of Immigration topics on this forum, I'd add this little golden nugget. Problem?

    No no no, what they'll do is say the stuff that @Willowglen is saying. That this is unrelated to the other immigration topics. Which it obviously isn't.

    "While Chavez was with the UFW, “UFW officials were also known to picket INS offices to demand a crackdown on illegal immigrants,” and the UFW even “set up what union officials called a ‘wet line’ to stop Mexican immigrants from entering the United States."

    "Chavez also wanted stiffer sanctions against employers who hired illegal immigrants."

    It's almost like, if you support illegal immigration, you support greedy big business.

    All I know is Avocado farming is to California what pig farming is to North Carolina.
    You used to see bacon on everything from ice cream to hamburgers, now Wendy's is actually adding bacon to fries. Such a demand. Big corporations have eliminated entrepreneurial family farmers with intensive piggeries making waterways that were once economic tourist boons for all now flesh eating disease breeding grounds.
    Avocados the new low cost protein to be put on every fast to casual entree at all restaurants, is about to sick all the water out of California like it has done in Chile.

    Instead of talking about immigration, we need to talk about the real thing that's ruining this country unregulated greed and the systematic elimination on manufacturing blue collar jobs, family owned businesses and farms.

    I'll take 10 immigrants with work ethic and hope for a better more independent life and are providing cheap labor to small businesses than
    a Chinese government company like Smithfield Farms putting American pig farmers out of business and pulloting our water or American chicken farmers not owning their chickens or Dupont saying family farmers can't own their seeds.

    Has Frank would say: Fuckin avacodo trees!

    Cesar Chavez was a self centered bigot. What more do you want us to say?
