Mexico Deports Cubans after Beating and Requesting Extortion Money from them

Posted by FactReal on June 1, 2011

THIS IS HOW MEXICO TREATS THEIR IMMIGRANTS
MEXICO DEPORTS CUBAN GIRL DESPITE RISK OF TORTURE
On May 25, 2011, the Miami Herald[1] reported on their Spanish edition how Mexico deported a Cuban girl even though she could face retaliation from the Cuban government for daring to escape the island without permission from her masters. Communist regimes think they own you. If you challenge them or escape from their grip, these Marxist goons think they can punish you whichever way they choose. Here is a rush translation:

Yanisleidys Pineda Nápoles

MEXICO CITY – After a year and a month of being detained in the Mexican immigration prisons, after obtaining three injunctions of justice against officials of the National Migration Institute (INM) and after receiving a statement certifying that she could not be returned to Cuba, Yanisleidys Pineda Nápoles was deported to Havana.

At 4 a.m. on Tuesday, Mexican immigration agents bursted into her room at the detention facility Iztapalapa, in the east of the capital. They took her out without any explanation, said her sister, Yanicel Dolphie Nápoles, who lives in New Jersey. They later returned to collect her belongings and six hours later they put her on a flight to her Cuban hometown. […]

Pineda had won in Mexico a case proving she had been the victim of extortion in the immigration station in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas. […]

Based on previous cases, Pineda’s attorney, Lopez Ferrer, said she could be detained by the Cuban State Security. She might also be left at liberty on condition that she’d report weekly to the authorities or she could be sent back to Mexico.

On Tuesday, the relatives in Cuba did not know of his whereabouts.

López Ferrer said she could have been deported in order to punish the Cubans who have not accepted to give extortion payments to Mexican authorities.

MEXICO ABUSES CUBAN MIGRANTS
On Nov. 15, 2010, El Nuevo Herald reported how Mexico abused Pineda and other Cubans:[2]
On Oct. 26, Yanisleidys Pineda Nápoles turned 20 years old. Her birthday gifts — the only items allowed to enter Iztapalapa’s Migratory Station — were a towel, a tube of toothpaste, a brush and a roll of sanitary paper.

She has spent six months in Mexican migratory prisons and, even though she is no longer deportable since she left Cuba more than a year ago, she doesn’t know how long the Mexican authorities will keep her in detention.

Hers is not an isolated case. In the past two years, after the Memorandum of Understanding between Cuba and Mexico was signed on Oct. 28, 2008, the passing of Cubans through this country en route to the United States has turned into a riskier and more expensive adventure.

Non-government organizations, such as Amnesty International, Without Borders and the Cuban-Mexican Civic Association, keep records of abuse, torture and extortion of Cubans by the Mexican authorities of the National Institute of Migration, the Navy, the Federal Patrol Police, the District Attorney’s Office and even the federal, state and city police, not to mention kidnappings by organized crime. […]

PERILOUS JOURNEY
The methods keep getting more sophisticated and they go from mental and physical torture to bribe demands or “passing fees” in cash, money orders or bank transfers.

Yanisleidys and her partner, Alexander Castillo Valdés, left Cuba at the end of 2009 with a letter of invitation to Ecuador. From there they went to Sanzurro, Colombia. Then they paid $4,000 to two Dominicans who owned a fishing boat to take them to the shores of Cancún on April 29 of this year. That is where their five-day ordeal through Mexico led by a Guatemalan coyote began.

Yanisleidys is following the steps of her sister, Yanicel Dolphie Nápoles, who lives in New Jersey and traveled the same journey five years ago. Yanicel sent $2,500 to the couple to leave Cancún and the same amount to go through Mexico City.

“Everything was going well until the taxi in which we were traveling crashed on its way to the New Laredo [Tamaulipas] border and the Mexican authorities turned us over to migration,” Yanisleidys said.

They were victims of extortion at the station. First, the local migration deputy officer asked them for $8,000 to give them an exit permit, a document that would allow them to travel 30 days through Mexican territory until they reached the United States.

Since they could not come up with the money, the officer tried to make them sign a deportation order with the approval of the Cuban consulate and threatened to turn them over to organized crime.

Through their lawyer, Eduardo Matías López Ferrer, who has been helping Cubans in Mexico for more than a decade, they were granted a permit. Nonetheless, they were taken out of their cells every morning to talk on the phone to an officer, who presented himself as an employee of the Migration headquarters in Mexico City and who asked them for money for their release.

HAUNTING SCREAMS
According to Castillo, this person said that he “had their files and could decide whether to release them or deport them.”
Castillo said he had seen and heard employees in civil clothes beating Cubans on the soccer field of the Iztapalapa Migratory Station after receiving their order of deportation.

That was the case of Leonel, a Cuban athlete who was deported to Cuba after being taken out at 5 a.m. and beaten at the Iztapalapa station.

“I cried that night,” Castillo said. “I couldn’t sleep hearing the screaming and the beating.”

Mora, the social communication director of the Institute of Migration, responded to these accusations through the Mexican newsweekly, Proceso.

“All foreigners, Cubans or otherwise, who are undocumented in national territory, are immediately secured and their return to their countries of legal residence is expedited,” he said. “The Institute has established security measures to give special follow-up to each case in order to guarantee their rights during their stay and repatriation.” […]

Diana Martínez, an official with the organization Without Borders, based in Mexico City, reiterates that Migration has not behaved according to the norms they themselves established.

She made reference to the case of a Cuban named Mario, who was detained in Mexico City and transferred to Chihuahua, where he was persuaded to stop a hunger strike he had launched to protest his situation.

After being beaten, Mario was deported to Cuba in the back of a plane covered by a blanket “to hide the blood, as if he had been kidnapped,” Martínez said.

OBAMA SAYS TEA PARTIERS ARE RACISTS…He Hasn’t Seen the Miami Tea Parties (Videos, Photos)

Posted by FactReal on March 3, 2011

THE LEFT’S OBSESSION WITH RACE
Obama said Tea Partiers are racists:

In May 2010, he [Obama] told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country…

A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to “take back” their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a “subterranean agenda” in the anti-Obama movement—a racially biased one—that was unfortunate. But he sadly conceded that there was little he could do about it.

Obama and other leftists conveniently ignore the Miami Tea Parties. In Miami, people from different background, race, nationality, and age have come together to protests against Obama’s failed policies. (BTW, it’s time leftists stop referring to Hispanics as ‘browns.’ Hispanics may be of any race or ethnic group, i.e., White, Black, Asian, Mestizos, etc. Being Hispanic means the person comes from a Spanish-speaking nation. It does not refer to race.)

Following are some Tea Party videos and photos. Note that those images were taken to record the protests and not to prove that Tea Parties are diverse.

Ron Gochez, Marxist L.A. Teacher Advising Kids Against Police (video)

Posted by FactReal on May 14, 2010

Updated by FactReal on May 16, 2010

NEW: Check the new video I just uploaded of Ron Gochez using text messaging to alert aliens of any immigration raids.
———-
Remember Ron Gochez, the now infamous Marxist L.A. teacher for his rabid Anti-American speech at a 2007 La Raza/UCLA rally?
Well, here is another video of Ron Gochez telling kids not to trust police. He is actually giving a statement at a hearing investigating alleged police brutality at the 2007 May Day Protest in California. He doesn’t let the opportunity go to waste. Gochez regurgitates his delirious separatist and Marxist harangue while showing virulent disgust towards the American system. No wonder many of our kids have hate in their heart.

(Recorded on July 9, 2007)
The so-called teacher introduces himself:
“My name is Ron Gochez. I’m here on behalf of Union del Barrio, Mexican Revolutionary Organization in the occupied territories of Mexico.”

Mr. Gochez ends his diatribe with a message to the youth:
“And for the youth…The police will never listen to us. They will never be our friends. Never had. They never will. They are here to serve and protect the interest of the rich. They always had, they always will. We have to organize our communities and that’s the only way we will defend our human rights.”

L.A. Teacher Ron Gochez Called for Mexican Revolt in the U.S. (transcript, video)

Posted by FactReal on May 10, 2010

Updated by FactReal on May 15, 2010

Hate speech! Communist teacher poisoning the minds and souls of kids…and Hispanics.
Video shows teacher Ron Gochez at a 2007 rally of La Raza (The Race) at UCLA spewing his Marxist venom, fomenting revolution and advocating for socialist take over of the United States.

Via StandWithArizona, Doug Ross:


Another copy of the video: here
HIGHLIGHTS OF HIS SPEECH (keep in mind he is a high school teacher):

“It’s not just about Mexico”

“…where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico!”

“…these frail, racist white people want to keep us out of this country”

“At the forefront of this revolutionary movement is La Raza”

We have “example from our commandante Fidel Castro”

“…we see ourselves…as The Northern Front of a Latin American Revolutionary Movement!”

“There are more than 40 million of our people north of the Rio Grande…40 million potential revolutionaries north of the border inside the belly of the beast!”

“Our enemy is Capitalism and Imperialism”

TRANSCRIPT OF HIS SPEECH:


I want to start out by saying that the young man who spoke a little while ago is one of my students! And that man is so proud because he knows that our people are strong leaders for years and years to come. (applause)

As a militante of Union del Barrio (Neighborhood Union), a Revolutionary Mexican Organization here, we understand what the camarada is saying, you are right. It’s not just about Mexico; it’s about the global struggle against imperialism and capitalism! (applause)

We know that all of that is happening in the context of where we now stand is stolen, occupied Mexico! (applause)

And the message that we bring is that we want to bring more of a revolutionary context to this. Why is that these people, these frail, racist white people want to keep us out of this country? It’s not because simply the color of our skin, it’s not simply that they just want to exploit us, let me tell you why: because on this planet right now, 6 billion people…at the forefront of the revolutionary movement is La Raza (The Race)…(Applause)

When we go to Venezuela….(Applause)…when we go…

We have a long history of example from our commandante Fidel Castro Ruz, Viva Fidel! Viva Hugo Chavez! Evo Morales, Brazil, Ecuador, you name it, we have nine…nine…left of center governments in Latin America right now and they know something that a one young Argentine named Che Guevara said…it was called the domino theory…and he knew that every single country would go revolutionary one after the other after the other after the other! (Applause)

So what do they fear? They know that every single country… they know that we no longer will fall for these lies called borders… We know that the Salvadorans, the Guatemalans, Nicaragüenses, the Mexicanos, there’s no damn difference, we are all one people. So with that in mind, we see ourselves — all of us here — as The Northern Front of a Latin American Revolutionary Movement!

There are more than 40 million of our people north of the Rio Grande. That means to them that’s over 40 million potential revolutionaries north of the border inside the belly of the beast! So when you think why do they want to kick us, our people, out — that’s why! Because they know that we now know the truth, they know we are La Raza, we are professionals, we are educators, we are revolutionary students, what does that mean?

We are not just a regular culture any more! We are a culture of revolutionary spirit! And that’s the fear! (Applause)

So with that being said, I want to leave you with this… as a revolutionary context, let’s be clear about one thing…our enemy is not the Minutemen…our enemy is not the Minutemen… because the Minutemen are not the ones who have killed over 4,600 people at those borders…our enemy is the same enemy as Hugo Chavez, as Hugo Chavez has…our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Africa poor…our enemy is the same enemy that keeps Asia poor…our enemy is Capitalism and Imperialism! (Applause)

I’ll finish with this…if we are serious about making change…if you are serious about making change, let me tell you…the struggle will go on for many more years after we leave UCLA…reading a book, or writing a book, or teaching a class, that is not, that is not part of the movement. What you do 24 hours a day, as a professional revolutionary, that will lead our people to liberation! Qué viva la Raza! (Long live The Race!)

RON GOCHEZ & RADICAL SEPARATISTS

Ron Gochez was chairman of MEChA, a radical separatist group:
Mechista Ron Gochez
On Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor,” MEChA chair Ron Gochez detailed their scheme regarding what they call the “stolen land.” “This is indigenous land. This is native land, you know, Mexicano land,” Gochez asserted. Asked by O’Reilly “If I gave you Arizona would you be happy with that?” Gotchez replied “They took a lot more than Arizona.” (video, 2002)

What is MECha?
A Chicano radical group that sees part of USA belongs to Mexico: [MEChA is an acronym for El Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (the Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan)]

According to MEChA propaganda, the Southwestern United States — including California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, as well as parts of Nevada, Utah, and Colorado — sits on the territory of the ancient (and mythical) “Nation of Aztlan.” Supposedly the cradle of Aztec civilization, MEChA charges that Aztlan was unjustly seized by the United States following the Mexican-American War. Now MEChA wants this territory given back to its alleged rightful owners: the people and government of Mexico.

MEChA & Reconquista (Reconquest):
Their most chilling demand is the call for “La Reconquista” or the retaking of the Southwestern states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah) to form an independent nation called “Aztlan”.

Equating the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo which ended the two-year Mexican War and granted the United States control over Texas and other parts of the Southwest with the outright theft of their land, the MEChA members believe they are justified in demanding the territories be returned to them.

TREASON
Remember what our Constitution says about treason:

Treason according to the U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Remember, this Marxist agitator is a teacher.

CRONYISM: Obama Appoints his Marxist Friend and SEIU Union Boss, Andy Stern, to the Commission on Fiscal Responsibility

Posted by FactReal on March 6, 2010

Obama Loves Irony: He Appoints a Marxist to the Fiscal Responsibility Commission
Andy Stern loves redistributing wealth and global government…and Obama appoints him to the Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. Here is the record of Marxist and union boss, Andy Stern, President of the SEIU (Service Employees International Union).
Andy Stern on Global Regulation and Wealth Distribution:

STERN: “We forgot to create a global government…or a global regulator…I happened to be at Davos and I say they are going to rename this year’s Davos as the revenge of the countries over the companies…We need global regulation and today we began the process in London of actually putting in place those regulators.”

“We now have a new metric. You know, the president says he wants to judge the new economy, whether it increases the number of people in the middle-class. Whether we have shared prosperity, not just whether we have growth — which is a fundamental different philosophy than we’ve seen in the country up to date.”

“Clearly government has a major opportunity to distribute wealth…through tax policies…the government has a role in distributing wealth…”

Andy Stern, SEIU (labor union) President, Obama's Fiscal Responsibility Commissioner
video source: NakedEmperorNews
“…We are at the historic crossroad, I think, economically in my lifetime in terms of what a new president is trying to do and the different way we’re going to try to evaluate the economy.”

“So, all of a sudden, we are witnessing the first new American economy plan — led by the government; not necessarily led by the private sector.”

Andy Stern, a Communists Manifesto fan and Union Thug

Obama’s favorite visitor according to White House visitor log records
– His goal: global reach for his Marxist organization
Fan of Communists Manifesto: “Workers of the world, unite!”
(famous slogan found in The Communist Manifesto)
His thuggish tactics: “Stern is unapologetic about targeting private equity firms, shaming business leaders, and competing to build SEIU’s membership: ‘We like to say: We use the power of persuasion first. If it doesn’t work, we try the persuasion of power.'”
– His philosophy: Unions and government are part of the solution of sharing the wealth and rebalancing the power.

Obama & Andy Stern: Grow the Middle-Class by Reducing the Top:
“Obama fails to see America as a land of opportunity, rejects wealth creation, and intends to “grow the middle,” not by lifting the poor, but by shrinking the top. This explains his obsession with health care-the “keystone” is in reach.

And should he grab it, we will all be less free.”

RUSH LIMBAUGH HAITI COMMENTS…facts, video, transcripts

Posted by FactReal on January 15, 2010

Rush Limbaugh said Americans help Haiti (via taxes, churches) as a response to Democrats already blaming the U.S. for the Haitian plight.
Rush said donating to Haiti via cell phone will be easy.

Why did Rush Limbaugh say that?
Rush was suspicious of why Obama wanted donations via his White House website.
Many people ignore the U.S. sends millions in foreign aid to Haiti and other countries (Census)

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

OBAMA WANTS DONATIONS VIA WHITEHOUSE WEBSITE:
Despite the fact that we are experiencing tough times here at home, I would encourage those Americans who want to support the urgent humanitarian efforts to go to WhiteHouse.gov where you can learn how to contribute. We’ll be resolute in our response, and I pledge to the people of Haiti that you will have a friend and partner in the United States of America today and going forward. May God bless the people of Haiti and those working on their behalf.

SUMMARY: WHAT DID RUSH LIMBAUGH SAY? (transcript )
1. A caller questions why Obama wants people to donate via the White House website, instead via the Red Cross.
2. Rush Limbaugh is also suspicious of why Obama wants donations via the White House.
3. Rush says Americans help Haiti (via taxes, churches) as a response to Democrats already blaming the U.S. for the Haitian plight:

Summary of what Rush said:
– Caller Justin asks Rush: “…why did Obama…[say] to donate some money, you can go to WhiteHouse.gov…If I want to donate money to the Red Cross, why do I need to go to the WhiteHouse.gov page”
– Rush asks: “Would you trust that the money is going to go to Haiti?”
– Rush continues: “Would you trust that your name is going to end up on a mailing list for the Obama people to start asking you for campaign donations for him and other causes.”
[Rush refers to the White House unsolicited email scandal pushing for Obama’s policies]
– Rush: “Besides, we’ve already donated to Haiti. It’s called the US income tax.”
– The caller mentions missionaries go to help Haiti.
– Rush: “That’s another point, too. Churches”
– Caller summarizes their points: “No government money, Rush.”
– Rush explains the reality in Haiti and responds to Democrats: “Look, there are people that do charitable work every day in Haiti. It’s not as though — like [Democrat] Debbie Wasserman Schultz, it’s our fault. Reverend Wright, it’s our fault, there’s no excuse for such poverty when there’s a nation as rich as we are so close. There are people that have been trying to save Haiti just as we’re trying to save Africa. You just can’t keep throwing money at it because the dictatorships there just take it all. They don’t spread it around, and even if they did they’re not creating a permanent system where people can provide for themselves. It’s a simple matter of self-reliance. Nobody takes that approach down there because this has always been a country run by dictators and incompetent ones at that.

4. Rush concludes by reading the Whitehouse.gov guide to donate to Haiti and affirms that donating via cell phone is easy:

Rush: “Now, that’s pretty easy, text Haiti and you’re gonna get billed for ten bucks and that money ostensibly is going to go to Haiti.”

CONTEXT OF WHAT RUSH LIMBAUGH SAID (transcript )
– Rush starts by pointing out that Obama responded faster to the Haiti crisis than to the Christmas terrorist attack:
“…it took [Obama] three days to respond to the Christmas Day Fruit of Kaboom Bomber, three days…He comes out here in less than 24 hours to speak about Haiti.”

– Since Obama has been going around the world apologizing and blaming America for almost everything, Rush teased with “…I wonder did he apologize for America before acknowledging we are the only people on earth that can possibly help ’em out down there in any significant way?”

– Rush reminds people how the U.S. leads in donations and foreign aid: “We are the most charitable and the most generous people on the face of the earth. Each and every time a natural disaster like this happens, we step up. We are there.”

– Rush describes how poor Haiti is: “[Haiti] is a devastatingly poor place and nothing has ever changed. And right across a mountain ridge in the middle you’ve got the Dominican Republic, which is like night and day. It’s like night and day. And what’s the one common factor?

That place, Haiti, has been run by dictators and communists, and how long is it going to be before we hear Obama and the left in this country say that what we really need to do is reinstate the communist Aristide to the leadership position down there to coordinate putting the country back together? The Haitian economy is entirely dependent on foreign aid. They produce nothing. Zilch, zero, nada. And it’s been that way for the longest time.”

– Rush knew a Democrat would blame the U.S. for Haiti’s situation:
“…[Democrat Wasserman Schultz] essentially says that Haiti and its current plight is our fault.”

– To prove Wasserman Schultz wrong, Rush provides history and facts of Haiti that have led it to be one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere: dictator Duvalier, secret police Tontons Macoutes, the communist Aristide, military coups, the Organization of American States and United Nations led trade boycotts to try to force Aristide’s return to power, etc.

– At the end, Rush reads the Whitehouse.gov guide to donate to Haiti and
says that donating via cell phone is easy:

Rush: “I had somebody go to WhiteHouse.gov to see what the donation process is. And this is all the guidance you get on donating to Haiti at the White House site. What I’m going to read to you is buried in a very long blog post about what Obama said about the earthquake. You get that first, you gotta read what Obama said, the maximum leader, you gotta read what he says and then you get to the bottom and here’s what it says. “You can also help, immediately, by donating to the Red Cross to assist the relief effort. Contribute online here, or donate $10 to be charged to your cell phone bill by texting Haiti. Find more ways to help through the Center for International Disaster Information.” So that’s all the guidance you get. Now, that’s pretty easy, text Haiti and you’re gonna get billed for ten bucks and that money ostensibly is going to go to Haiti.
