Fox News -- Mexican born American citizen making anti-American statements

Update: HotAir has the video. The illegal alien strike advocate's name is Javier Rodriguez.

Update 2: Read T. Otamendi comments, "This guy also was today with Lou Dobbs and called President Bush an immoral. Agree with you; this people are damaging our heritage."


You watching Fox news? Dayside just had a spokesperson for the pro-illegal immigration rallies on the air--I didn't write down his name (wasn't in a journalistic mode there). This guy was insane. I just don't know what else to call what I heard. As soon as I find someone who has the video, I'll link to it.

They guy came across really bad. I keep saying it--the unions are using common desperate latinos, both legal immigrants and illegal. The guy brought out Iraq, and said some real anti-American statements. A lady in the audience, with a son in Iraq, got REAL angry. It was very evident that he had no love for America, regardless of what he said, and that his loyalties are not with the United States of America.

The funny thing is, one minute he is saying he is American, but the next, he is saying "you guys bombed Iraqi" and "you guys are killing children." Julliet kept trying to ask him about this--asking about whether he was, as an American, a part of that statement. It was freaky in a way--these guys are just off the edge. He also commented about the Spanish national anthem remake, saying he thought it was a great thing. You should have heard the audience--very vocal about their displeasure with the guy's words.

I personally don't appreciate these sort of people. They make the rest of us legal immigrants or political refugees look bad.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
