Bert Corona: Father of the Illegal Immigration Movement… via @epochtimes
Corona dedicated much of his life to turning illegal immigrants into a political movement. His work transformed California and is now rippling across the whole nation
If the United States ever falls to socialism after being deluged by illegal alien voters, Corona will go down in history as one of this country’s great communist revolutionary heroes.
Corona was born in 1918 in El Paso, Texas, at the height of the Mexican Revolution.
His father, Noé, was a member of the Partido Liberal Mexicano, an anarcho-syndicalist group, and served as a comandante in one of the two main insurgent armies of the Mexican Revolution
In the late 1930s, Corona moved to Los Angeles to attend USC. Soon, Corona was drawn into labor organizing with the communist-controlled International Longshore and Warehouse Union , and later the equally Marxist–Leninist-dominated Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO).
Corona was a protégé of the legendary ILWU leader Harry Bridges, who was later identified as a secret leader of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA).
In addition to labor organizing, Corona helped build the leftist League of Spanish-Speaking People and helped form chapters of Saul Alinsky’s Community Service Organization in Los Angeles.
In the 1970s, Corona was co-chair, with open communist Angela Davis, of the CPUSA-controlled National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression.
Corona was one of the founders of the still-influential Mexican American Political Association, which has launched the careers of many Latino politicians within the Democratic Party.
Corona broke with then-too-conservative Democrats. He allied with the Raza Unida Party (RUP), which preached that an “occupied Chicano nation” in the southwestern United States needed to be wrested from the “Anglo” conquerors and returned to Mexico.
Chavez actively worked to deport illegal alien farm workers lest they compete with his own members. The more politically sophisticated (and communist-trained) Corona instead wanted to organize illegal workers into a political force.
Most U.S. presidential elections are won or lost by under 3,000,000 votes. With an estimated 22 million Democrat-leaning illegal aliens currently living in the United States, it’s not hard to see where Corona’s ideas could take America.
Still wondering why the Democrats refuse to build that wall?
