Obama made a partisan move to shore up the Latino vote by making timely move to honor Caser Chavez. What a political hack, he would sell his white grandmother into slavery for votes, but I digress!

Chavez is applauded for his work for the worker and esp the farm worker (who were and still are exploited), yet what pro-illegal immigration liberal doesn't know was that Chavez was a STRONGLY anti-illegal immigrant and actively fought it and protested against it!

Illegal immigration destroyed his efforts to help the American worker, because employers could nab 1000s of illegals who had no recourse for worker compliants!

Cesar Chavez: Longtime foe of illegal immigration
Chavez himself was a third generation American citizen and a Navy veteran...in his prime he was an ardent opponent of illegal immigration and actively fought against the importation of strikebreakers from Mexico.

Chavez understood the basic laws of supply and demand — the greater the supply (of labor), the less the demand (and hence the lower the wages). Just as the founder of the American Federation of Labor Samuel Gompers was an influential voice calling for the immigration-restricting law of 1924, so Chavez openly and actively opposed illegal immigration because it crippled his ability to unionize farm workers and increase their wages.

In 1979 testimony to Congress, Chavez complained, "... when the farm workers strike and their strike is successful, the employers go to Mexico and have unlimited, unrestricted use of illegal alien strikebreakers to break the strike. And, for over 30 years, the Immigration and Naturalization Service has looked the other way and assisted in the strikebreaking. I do not remember one single instance in 30 years where the Immigration service has removed strikebreakers. ... The employers use professional smugglers to recruit and transport human contraband across the Mexican border for the specific act of strikebreaking..."

In 1969, Chavez actually led a march to the Mexican border to protest illegal immigration, accompanied by Sen. Walter Mondale and Ralph Abernathy, whom alert readers will recognize as Martin Luther King's successor as head of the Southern Leadership Conference.

Chavez demanded that the federal government close the border, routinely reported suspected illegal immigrants to immigration officials, and put his brother in charge of Minutemen-like border patrols which on more than one occasion resulted in the beatings of intruders.
