Border Action Network
aka Border Alliance Group
Fanatical Mexican Invasion Boosters, Fifth Columnists,
Hardcore Traitors and Radical Open-borders Nuts
This group is suspected of being closely tied to left-wing radical Morris Dees and his Southern Poverty Law Center, 'Mexican government agent' - vehement reconquista Isabel Garcia and her Aztlan gang, 'Derechos Humanos', and other anti-American groups.
According to this Indymedia website, The Border Action Network formed in 1999 under the name South West Alliance to Resist Militarization to fight the human and environmental injustices caused by the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border. In recognition of the broad and complex impacts of militarization, we are an alliance of border rights, environmental, social justice, human rights, and labor activists. Border Action Network is dedicated to exposing and ending the militarization of our borders and cities. We also understand that this group is big in anti-war and anti-WTO protests, etc., which may have involved violence or terrorism in the past.
