It's like saying "Mars Attacks" was a rallying cry against the shapeshifting lizard aliens.
The Mexican Repatriation refers to a forced migration that took place between 1929 and 1939, when as many as one million people of Mexican descent were forced or pressured to leave the US. (The term "Repatriation," though commonly used, is inaccurate, since approximately 60% of those driven out were U.S. citizens.) The event, carried out by American authorities, took place without due process. The Immigration and Naturalization Service targeted Mexicans because of "the proximity of the Mexican border, the physical distinctiveness of mestizos, and easily identifiable barrios."
The Repatriation is not widely discussed in American history textbooks; in a 2006 survey of the nine most commonly used American history textbooks in the United States, four did not mention the Repatriation, and only one devoted more than half a page to the topic. In total, they devoted four pages to the Repatriation, compared with eighteen pages for the Japanese American internment.
These actions were authorized by President Herbert Hoover and targeted areas with large Hispanic populations, mostly in California, Texas, Colorado, Illinois and Michigan en.wikipedia.org...

the director, production company, and every actor/actress in this film is now on my # list.
you can kiss any potential cent i would have spent on any future productions goodbye.
matter of fact it would be unfortunate if there were a mass pirating campaign on this movie to ensure it makes no money.
it would be interesting if there were folks walking around with stacks of copied versions of this movie passing them out for free.
i wonder how they would react to that.

Rodriguez also made Hostel and From Dusk Till Dawn...both provocative, but just movies.

I'd laugh if some people who did infact work for Rodriguez did actually call Mr. Jones and just try to get a rise out of him and stir the pot
It might also be just Jones working for Rodriguez as some kinda of Viral Advertisement.
