Could Illegal Alien Terror Hit the U.S.?
Maybe the young man sees his ethnic kin as the “bronze people” whose “time has come and who struggles against the foreigner ‘gabacho’ who exploits [his people’s] riches and destroys [his] culture,” as does the extremist group Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or “MEChA.”
His ethnic loyalties could have actually come from the very top of American Hispanic leadership. Ten-term Illinois congressman Luis Gutierrez has stated that he only has “one loyalty and that’s to the immigrant community.”
Maybe he found inspiration from Sonia Sotomayor, current Supreme Court justice and former board member of pro-amnesty legal advocate LatinoJustice, who’s stated that her “national origins may and will make a difference in [her] judging.”
What’s likely is that the adolescent’s hatred for el Norte came from both societies he grew up in. Mexican leadership treats immigration into the U.S. as if it’s a right. They’ve pushed the UN to declare any border fence erected by the U.S. to be illegal. They provide manuals to the poor on how to break in to the U.S., give free legal counsel to illegal aliens caught crossing the border, and teach Mexican students that our entire Southwest region actually belongs to Mexico (which had stolen it from Spain, which had stolen it from the Indians).
Whether the source of illegal-alien terrorism is from within or without, we’re likely to see more of it soon.
