“[Y]our ignorant anti-immigrant opinions, your border wall rhetoric, and your recent bigoted attack on an American jurist are just plain despicable,” Vela wrote.
“Your position with respect to the millions of undocumented Mexican workers who now live in this country is hateful, dehumanizing, and frankly shameful.”
As for the claims that the Judge isn’t a “Mexican” because he was born here (to parents born in Mexico):
“Before you dismiss me as just another ‘Mexican,’ let me point out that my great-great grandfather came to this country in 1857, well before your own grandfather. His grandchildren (my grandfather and his brothers) all served our country in World War I and World War II. His great-grandson, my father, served in the U.S. Army and, coincidentally, was one of the first ‘Mexican’ federal judges ever appointed to the federal bench,” Vela wrote.
I dismiss you as “just another ‘Mexican'” because you obviously self-identify as just another ‘Mexican’. Your loyalty to America is divided. Your loyalty is divided, despite your family having been here longer than Judge Curiel — which means that you are proof that this “defense” is bullshit.
More than Jews have split allegiances to America and Israel, more than Irish-Americans had split loyalties between the US and the IRA, more than any other ethnic group, Mexican-Americans have shown that they are not 100% loyal to the USA, but in fact split that allegiance with Mexico (if they have any allegiance to the US at all, which many illegals do not.)
You want us to treat you like full blown Americans? Start acting like it. Put down the Mexican flags, stop the la Raza shit, and stop acting like you share interests with Mexican nationals — because that is the definition of divided loyalties.
