For the last few years, we have heard left-wing politicians and illegal alien advocacy groups refer to young illegal aliens as “Dreamers,” a reference to the often-failed DREAM Act which would provide amnesty to illegal aliens who wish to attend college in the United States.
We are often told by Democrats that it would not be fair to deport these illegal aliens because the U.S. is the only country they have ever really known and they are just as ‘American’ as anyone else.
During a 2010 debate, Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley even referred to the millions of illegal aliens now residing in the U.S. as “new Americans.”
In June 2011, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee once again held hearings on the supposed merits the failed DREAM Act.
Undoubtedly, under the direction of Sen. Durbin, the room was filled with young people identifying themselves as illegal aliens.
Playing to the cameras, Durbin stated: “When I look around this room, I see America's future. Our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our Congressman, our Senators and maybe our President.”
Of course, only a natural born citizen is eligible to become President (maybe).
However, one of the things preventing these so-called “new Americans” from actually assimilating and embracing this country is the often-virulently racist curriculum being taught in many public schools known as ‘Raza Studies.’
A large percentage of students enrolled in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD), just as in much of Arizona’s public school systems are the children of immigrants, both legal and illegal. One of the courses those children have been taught is so-called Raza studies or Mexican-American studies.
Raza studies (race studies) have been taught in the TUSD for about a dozen years.
One of the textbooks they use is titled “Occupied America,” which was written by Rodolfo Acuña and includes a speech given by activist and university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez in which he says: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).
The book also talks about the need for Mexico to re-take seven states in the Southwestern United States.
The following rather shocking quotes are taken directly from Occupied America (pg. 167):
“Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego).
“The Southwest would become a Chicano nation.”
In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce such polarizing beliefs in Latino children in traditional public schools, the organization known as La Raza operates 100 charter schools across the country. The following is a list of a few of those schools:
-La Academia Semillas del Pueblo (Los Angeles)
-Atzlan Academy (Tucson, AZ)
-Mexicayotl Academy (Nogales, AZ)
-The Dolores Huerta Prepatory High School (Pueblo, CO)
-Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School (St. Paul, MN)
In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given out to these charter schools in the form of U.S. Department of Education grants. These schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan, and even Aztec math.
Raza studies are now also being taught at many public universities across this country.
The United States is often referred to as the “Great Melting Pot.”
However, teaching children such ethno-centric values and even over-taking a portion of this country, through violence if necessary can only lead to those students’ further isolation and distrust of anyone who looks or sounds different from them.
There is no place for race studies in public classrooms.
Miguel Perez of Examiner.com recently reported that the Phoenix-based Nuestros Reconquistos says that a civil war will soon take place in this country led by radical Latino factions.
Perez quoted Nuestros Reconquistos President Manuel Longoria, as saying: “La Raza and MEChA have already talked to Latinos and Phoenix and explained that Latinos need to arm themselves for war.”
Cecilia Maldonado of Chicanos Unidos Arizona reportedly said: “For generations, our people have prepared us to take back the lands of the Southwest that were stolen from our Mexican ancestors. Because of the bad economy and many racist laws, Latinos will be forced to fight sooner than later.”
It is clear that our open-borders politicians either have no clue as to what they are inviting to take place in this country, or apparently want to usher-in our demise.
