We have identified DreamActivist.org / National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA) as extreme and radical groups who are on the record for wanting to kill Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) efforts.
On August 2, 2013, we wrote about how the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) ought to rebuke Mohammad Abdollahi’s anti-American rhetoric.
But we see NIAC turning a blind eye.
As a Mexican American veteran of the United States Air Force, I personally take issue with Mohammad referring to our Nation as Amerikkka, and for wanting to derail immigration reform that affects millions of my people within the Mexican community. Mohammad certainly does NOT reflect the attitude of Mexican-American voters and he is a nuisance to real legal immigration reform. If Mohammad views our Nation so poorly — why does he want to remain in our Nation? If he supports Mexicans self-deporting …. why doesn’t he self-deport?
Two years ago, NIAC was supporting Mohammad Abdollahi and assisting to help prevent his deportation.
As such, I believe it is time for NIAC to rebuke Mohammad’s extremism and anti-American rhetoric.
Mohammad’s extremism includes but is not limited to:
- Referring to our Nation as Amerikkka
- Wanting to “creatively kill” comprehensive legal immigration reform
- Making references to and soliciting thousands of dollars for “legal coyote” work [when the FBI says there is no such thing]
- Making disparaging racist remarks about “whitey” particularly when he is currently living in our Nation and using it as a safe haven
- Telling Mexican immigrants to self-deport when he will not take his own advice
- Being disrespectful to MALDEF
- Protesting Mexican American Democratic legislators who are already in favor of passing immigration reform
- Being disrespectful to Mexican American Immigration Rights’ activists
The National Iranian American Council prides itself to encourage healthy and productive ideas and good positive images within the Iranian-American community, so why aren’t they stepping in and telling Americans that Mohammad’s actions are not endorsed by NIAC?
If NIAC does not rebuke the extreme and radical actions by Mohammad — the Mexican American community will this organization as one who chooses to look the other way and not assisting in real immigration reform efforts.
The choice is theirs.
It is already bad enough for Chicanos in Arizona to hear the restrictionist Republicans with their rhetoric when they have tried to connect terrorism to the Mexican border and Mexican wall. We are sick of far right winger politicians in Arizona equating the Mexican Border to terrorism. The “Amerikkka” rhetoric ought to be DAMNED. Enough is enough. Mexican immigrants are not the ones strapping bombs on their person at our border as some far right wingers would have you believe. J.D. Hayworth, the ousted Senator Russell Pearce of Arizona have tried to equate terrorism to what is going on at the Mexican border.
