||Elected to Congress in November,
Arizona, meet your new Mechista Congressman
Arizona congressman-elect Raul Grijalva is a former member of MEChA, according to a 1997 article in the Arizona Daily Wildcat. Did voters know that Grijalva is or was involved with an anti-American seditionist organization? Will he denounce MEChA now that he's headed to Washington? Will he represent MEChA viewpoints (rabidly anti-American) or the interests of the American people when he gets there? -- Grijalva also isn't happy about "civilian patrols" whose members are seeking to deter illegal immigration, and is in agreement with meddlesome Mexicans that an investigation is needed into activities of Americans (not illegal aliens and their cheerleaders).
