Anti-illegal immigration activists threatened - Hispanic group suggests food workers might taint food at Vegas summit

Ron Strom:

A radical anti-American group working for the establishment of a separate Hispanic nation in the southwest U.S. has threatened attendees of an anti-illegal immigration conference in Las Vegas planned for this weekend, saying Mexican food workers might cause "Montezuma's Revenge" among those they serve.

A news release from La Voz de Aztlan – which sees its struggle for a separate state with Los Angeles as its capital as similar to that of the Palestinians in the Middle East – announces that leaders of the "USA Anti-Mexican Movement" – Aztlan's own term – will be meeting this weekend in Las Vegas.

States the group: "The 'Who's Who List of Xenophobes' will be at the Plaza Hotel on Friday May 27, Saturday May 28 and Sunday May 29 to coordinate the vigilante operations they plan to undertake along the California/Mexico border on June through August."

The mention of "vigilante operations" is a reference to the activities of the Minuteman Project, a successful citizen border patrol effort that effectively shut down the flow of illegal aliens from Mexico this spring over a 23-mile stretch in Arizona.

"Among the racists who will be attending is head bigot Tom Tancredo," says La Voz de Aztlan. "Tancredo is a congressman from Colorado who has aspirations to become USA president by utilizing Mexican immigrants as 'scapegoats' for the nation's economic and social problems. Among other bigots attending are felon Chris Simcox of the Minutemen vigilantes and his lackey Jim Gilchrist. The list of anti-Mexican xenophobes also includes Glenn Spencer [American Border Patrol], Barbara Coe [California Coalition for Immigration Reform], and the 'coconut' Andy Ramirez [Friends of the Border Patrol]. 'Vendido' Andy Ramirez is being utilized by the bigots as a 'Taco Tio.'"

The event is being sponsored by the Wake Up American Foundation. The true name of the conference, according to the event website, is "United to Fight Against Illegal Immigration Summit."

Though the Plaza Hotel will house some of the attendees, sessions will be held at the Cashman Center in Las Vegas.

The release from La Voz de Aztlan ends with the threat:

"What the bigots who will be meeting at the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas don't know may not harm them, but the fact is that most of the personnel who work in the hotel's kitchens are Mexican. We pray that they don't fall victims of 'Montezuma's Revenge' from eating the food."
