Ted Hayes Update

A slight change in's the new & improved info for this weekend:

Choose Black America to Hold Chicago Workshop and Press Conference:Defending the Legacy of the American Civil Rights Movement Against Illegal Alien Advocacy Networks


Choose Black America (CBA), a coalition of black American leaders and veterans of the American civil rights movement will hold a press conference and workshop aimed at defending the true legacy of the struggle for civil rights in America.


Among the press conference participants will be:

Frank Morris - chairman, CBA and former dean at Morgan State University
Ted Hayes - national advocate for the homeless and founder of Dome Village in Los Angeles
James Clingman - former editor of the Cincinnati Herald and founder of the Cincinnati African American Chamber of Commerce
Kevin Fobbs - president, National Urban Action Council and radio talk show host
James Spencer - Los Angeles-based entrepreneur
Terrence Lang - [details to be added].


Saturday October 21, 2006

Press Conference 11AM at Adalberto United Methodist Church is 2716 W. Division Street, Chicago, Il 60622.

Workshop 3PM at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, 9300 West Bryn Mawr Ave. Rosemont, IL in the Pan American Room, Lobby Level


The legacy and the symbols of the struggle of black American to achieve equal treatment under the law is under attack by a network of illegal alien advocacy organizations. Equating the demands of illegal aliens for amnesty and other benefits, to the black civil rights movement trivializes the historic injustices to Americans of African descent and the heroism of those who fought to overcome racial discrimination.

Chicago is the epicenter of the illegal alien advocacy network's attempt to co-opt the moral legacy of the civil rights struggle. Illegal alien advocates are shamelessly exploiting the memory of Rosa Parks, by comparing her stand against racial injustice with that of Elvira Arellano, an illegal alien seeking to claim the mantle of civil rights in her effort to evade deportation.

Ted Hayes Returns to Chicago!


Los Angeles activist Ted Hayes returns to Chicago to speak out for the civil rights of U.S. citizens and against foreign nationals who try to usurp them. Accompanying Ted is Dr. Frank Morris, chair of Choose Black America.

"By the way, notice that while we are demanding that the federal authorities do their duty and arrest Ms. Arellano, we are also extending our hand of brotherhood and fellowship to assist her and other campañeros fleeing from the cultures of oppression in Mesoamerica, especially Mexico, to ignite and launch a true Civil Rights movement in their own countries, even as Blacks did so in the USA."

Columbia Protesters Rush Stage as Gilchrist Speaks

***Cross-posted from Freedom Folks Blog***

Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist was attacked by angry, violent protesters last night who stormed the stage during his speech at Columbia University in New York City, forcing an abrupt end to the event.


Gilchrist told WND the "violent outburst is yet another indication that those who support illegal immigration are happy to use communist tactics in their intolerant determination to prevent the Minutemen from exercising their First Amendment rights."

An outright battle broke out Wednesday on stage at Columbia University with Minutemen leader Jim Gilchrist caught in the middle. His message against illegal immigrants was too radical for students and protesters who took over the stage, cutting his speech short.


“He has a history of being aligned with white power forces and racist forces throughout the U.S.,” said one protester.

“Minutemen are not a legitimate voice in the debate over immigration,” added another. “The Minutemen are a group of racist vigilantes who stand on the border with their rifles and call it open hunting season on anyone with brown skin.”

Mexican Flag Flown Higher Than American Flag

***Cross-posted from Freedom Folks Blog***

Source: lcsunnews

SANTA TERESA — Just across from the Santa Teresa Port of Entry, within sight of the U.S. Border Patrol building, the sand dunes and mesquite don't pay much attention to international borders.

But some of those who work in the area of the Verde Santa Teresa Bi-National industrial park are very aware of the border, and what it means to be on the northern side.

The park, which houses several facilities built to accommodate suppliers, custom brokers and logistics companies that serve manufacturing facilities in Juárez, flies three flags at the entryway — those of the United States, Mexico and the state of New Mexico.

The rub lies in the fact the American flag is flown slightly lower than that of Mexico, Hildegard Reisencheid said.

"I don't think the Mexican flag should be flown higher than the American flag," said the 48-year-old naturalized American. "This is the American side and I just don't think that's right."

You tell'em Hildy!

Also, if you'll note the pic above, shouldn't the US flag be in the center? I'm unsure if there's any rule on that or if it's just what I'm used to seeing.

The Congressional Research Service on the U.S. Flag Code, Section 7, in part states: "No other flag should be placed above the United States of America" when flags of multiple countries are flown together. Later, the code states "When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace."

"I don't go flying my German flag above the American flag," Reisencheid said. "I've been in the United States for 30 years. It's a lack of respect. I think it's just because it is in a remote location, a lot of people have not noticed it."

Ernie Vasquez, an Army veteran, agreed.

"As a citizen, I see it as an insult to our country," he said. "There is some disrespect to the flag."

Vasquez, a member of the American Legion Post 36 in El Paso, said he would prefer to see the American flag flown on an equal level as the Mexican flag.

"I don't see why they should be flying another country's flag higher than ours," he said. "I was born here in the U.S. I'm an American first, then later on I am what I am — a human and an ethnic group. That's what I feel."

I think Ernie should win a kewpie doll! That's exactly right, and if more people took that attitude these days we wouldn't be having a lot of the problems we currently enjoy.

2 Mexican customs inspectors arrested in cross-border tunnel dig

SAN DIEGO (AP) Mexican federal police arrested two customs officials and three others on charges of digging a secret tunnel that was presumably to be used for funneling drugs to the United States, authorities said Wednesday.

The tunnel, which stretched about 25 yards on land owned by the Mexican customs authority, did not cross the U.S.-Mexico border. It was about 100 yards from the San Ysidro border crossing, which connects Tijuana and San Diego.

Federal police captured a customs inspector, identified as Ruben Contreras, 32, and three other men Tuesday morning ``in flagrante'' as they were working on the tunnel, said Luis Cabrera, Mexico's consul general in San Diego.

One of the three men, Carlos Lopez, 27, oversaw the construction, while the two other men were paid $20 a night to dig, according to Mexican Department of Public Safety.

A customs supervisor, Jesus Roberto Giron Rodriguez, was later arrested on suspicion of involvement in the plot, Cabrera said.

Contreras allegedly told authorities that Giron directed him to stand watch at the tunnel's mouth while the other men dug overnight.

Authorities have discovered about 40 secret tunnels on the U.S.-Mexico border since they began keeping track after Sept. 11, 2001, the vast majority in and around San Diego and Nogales, Ariz.
When president Bush talks about "our good friend and neighbor Mexico," is this part of that deal?

Illegal Freeloaders Steal Healthcare

***Cross-posted from Freedom Folks Blog***

Source: KGBT4 News (H/T Immigration News Daily)

They just walk into the E-R and deliver a baby.

No questions asked because by law physicians like those at Starr County Memorial Hospital have to accept someone who is an emergency and labor in this case is an emergency.

But the problem is the number of undocumented immigrants they see has doubled to more than 25 a month.

"That's an issue that ties up resources, time and alot of effort and it is also not good for the patient that does that," Dr. Antonio Falcon said.

Dr. Falcon is a member of the U.S.-Mexican Border Health Commission and says that if immigrants can't pay for the services, they can apply for Emergency Medicaid or just leave and not pay a thing.
Let me get this straight. I work a full-time job. I pay my taxes. I have a pretty standard PPO healthcare plan. Right now I'm paying for my healthcare AND the healthcare of illegal aliens who aren't even supposed to be here in the first place.

Maybe I should quit my job and renounce my citizenship. Then I could get free healthcare myself. Well -- free for me. You law-abiding American citizens out there wouldn't mind paying my way, right?

"You need to get policy makers that can understand that we have an open border where - a dynamic border where people basically come and go and so some how or another we need to address the issue," Dr. Falcon said.

He says if this had an easy solution, it would have already happened, but citizens and physicians must get involved.

Something this hospital hopes happens soon before it's too late.

"It could turn into a really big problem if we continue to see what we're seeing now." Thalia said.
Problem, schmoblem! Everyone knows that the American people are a bottomless supply of money for the rest of the world. And, lest we forget, we have a government full of treasonous elected officials who are desperately trying to give this great country away to remind us.
