After reading your piece and going to look at the websites, I can say that on the surface your organization has very nobel goals, however, here is the problems I have.
I am all for civil rights and equal justice for all citizens of the United States. I too know of the sting of discrimination on the part of the state and the public. But I do not carry or admire mass murders or the violation of any law of the country. I still believe in this country and will never support an open boarder that is just one sided. I have seen first hand what happens to citizens of the United States of America when they go down to Mexico to live and it was not pretty, in short they were kicked out of their homes, and sent back to the United States of America with no compensation on the part of the Mexican government, then they changed the laws to prevent such from happening again.
When I see that in a protest something being thrown at law enforcement officers or violence, or flags of Che, or the words of Castro being used as justification, or the flag of another nation, it does not garner my support or any who I know, rather it fills us with disgust and contempt. It states that you are not here for the country, have no loyalty and thus why should we even consider giving you any support on any level?
If the protests were peaceful, the American Flags were flown, and the ideas that you espoused were support for the country and want to follow the laws, then I would be more inclined to give support as would others, cause then it is a matter of equal justice. Your group, as nobel as it may seem, is only seeking social justice, and have too close ties to those who would endanger other people who are not hispanic. It may seem peaceful on the surface, but it reeks of racism and violence on the underside.
The boarders exist to protect both countries, and to prevent social faux pas from occuring, it marks where the laws of one country starts and another ends. Tell me, as you are for open boarders, would it matter if one of your immediate realitives, mother, father, brother, sisiter, spouse, child, got sick from catching something commicable like tb, or the flu? Would it be alright if they got killed cause the surprised someone who came in the middle of the night, or raped, or kidnapped? Would it matter if your idenity and credit were destroyed cause someone who violated the laws of the country stole it to get a better job while you are working for minimum wage or you were out of work and could not get a job?
The issues and problems that face ilegale immigration are great, but what the group La Raza Unida and their affiliates are something the country can not afford at this time, nor should it be considered. Tell me if you get your way, what is to stop every other nationality
