Marxist Group a Force Behind Illegal Immigrant Protests

Lou Dobbs writes a commentary today in which he points out the relationship between illegal immigration protests and the radical leftist organization A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism)

...only one newspaper, to its credit, reported that illegal aliens and their supporters' boycott of the national economy on the First of May is clear evidence that radical elements have seized control of the movement. The Washington Post, alone among national papers, reported that ANSWER has become an active promoter of the national boycott.

Some illegal immigration and open borders activists in the Hispanic community are deeply concerned about the involvement of the left-wing radical group. But others, like Juan Jose Gutierrez, whom I've interviewed a number of times over the past several months, manages to be both director of Latino Movement USA and a representative of ANSWER.
...
Just how significant is the impact of leftists within the illegal immigration movement? It is no accident that they chose May 1 as their day of demonstration and boycott. It is the worldwide day of commemorative demonstrations by various socialist, communist, and even anarchic organizations.

Lest you think Dobbs is exaggerating, consider the following:

International A.N.S.W.E.R.'s website today displayed this headline:

May 1 / National Boycott / No Work, School, Selling, or Buying/ A Day Without An Immigrant, and featured this statement:

The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism) fully supports the struggle of the immigrant community to win the rights that all people should enjoy, and we denounce the racist attempts to criminalize undocumented and all immigrant people.

A.N.S.W.E.R. LA's website ran this headline:

May 1 Boycott & LA Marches for Immigrant Rights
No Work! No School! Take To the Streets!


So just who is A.N.S.W.E.R.? A look at its leaders provides a pretty good insight. According to Wikipedia

...its steering committee consists of socialists, Marxists, civil rights advocates, and progressive organizations from the Muslim, Arab, Palestinian, Filipino, Haitian, and Latin American communities.
...
Many of ANSWER's leaders were members of Workers World Party (WWP) at the time of ANSWER's founding, and are current members of the Party for Socialism and Liberation...

The Workers World Party is a "communist party in the United States founded in 1959..."

The Party for Socialism and Liberation is "a Marxist-Leninist party in the United States founded (in 2004) to promote revolutionary change.

A.N.S.W.E.R. is an anti-United States, Marxist organization. While most illegal immigrants have nothing to do with the organization and are probably even unaware of its existence, there is no doubt that A.N.S.W.E.R. is behind many of the organized protests. The question is why. The answer is that A.N.S.W.E.R. leaders understand what many of our Senators and Representatives do not: that illegal immigration is a threat to the sovereignty of the United States of America. A.N.S.W.E.R. is using the illegal immigration issue to further its own anti-American agenda, and our elected officials are letting it happen.

This post illustrates just how important it is to educate ourselves.

Many Americans don't really understand the underlying issues behind many proposed policies, and in this way, the politicians are able to further their agendas.

The illegals are also being used by dangerous political groups who have a very real agenda. Their lack of education and their willingness to get their own message out in any way possible is blinding them to how they are being used.

We have got to keep our eyes and ears open and try to keep ourselves aware of what is really happening.
