The Zapatistas Engage On Behalf Of Illegal Aliens

By Greg L | 14 June 2008 | Zapatistas | 15 Comments

Mexicans Without Borders is a decidedly Zapatista organization that was originally formed as the “Zapatista Committee of the Knitted Cap”.  They’re also a signatory to the “Other Campaign” of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation in Mexico as their website attests.  So when the EZLN starts re-engaging in their armed struggle on behalf of illegal aliens in Mexico, you’ve just got to wonder what Mexicans Without Borders’ next step in Virginia might look like.  The Washington Post reports that last week in Mexico’s southern Chiapas province, in the heartland of the EZLN, a group of masked men carrying “heavy caliber weapons” hijacked a bus containing thirty-seven illegal aliens previously detained by the Mexican police, and freed them.  Although the EZLN was not identified by Mexican authorities as being behind this, there just aren’t a whole lot of other armed groups that wear masks and run around in Chiapas province causing trouble.

Armed men hijacked a bus carrying 33 Cubans and four Central American migrants detained in southern Mexico after forcing immigration agents away at gunpoint, officials said on Thursday.

A half-dozen assailants wearing masks and carrying guns blocked the road, stopped the bus and forced the seven unarmed agents and two bus drivers to get off, Mexico’s National Immigration Institute said.

The hijacking occurred late Wednesday in the southern state of Chiapas. None of the immigration agents or bus drivers were harmed.

“The armed men took off with the foreigners to an unknown destination,” the Immigration Institute said in a press statement.

An immigration official who was not authorized to be quoted by name said the assailants threatened the agents with “heavy caliber weapons.” He initially said 34 Cubans had been involved. The bus was later discovered, empty near the jungle city of Ocosingo.

Between the money to be made in human smuggling and running drugs, the cash-strapped EZLN and their domestic allies in the United States might at some point find it rather worthwhile to get in on the action.  If EZLN military activity in Mexico starts heating up in support of smuggling operations, you can bet that local affiliates such as Mexicans Without Borders might also start demonstrating some different behavior here locally. If the Zapatista movement turns to nacrotrafficking and human smuggling in order to raise cash, it is not going to be limited strictly to Chiapas Provide in Mexico.

    The whole damn country is an armed camp of one sort or another between the drug cartels, coyotes and the Zapatistas.

    A “knitted cap”? A euphemism for a ski mask?

    Precisely. The Spanish term is “pasamontana”, which is what they call their ski masks, but since you don’t do a whole lot of skiing in Chiapas, they describe them by how they are made, not by how they were intended to be used.

    It ‘passes the mountain’, or somesuch. Makes sense.

    Would be interesting if they appeared here with ‘knitted caps’, camouflage attire and assorted accessories. :)

    The Chiapas peasants are the very ones the Mexican gov’t is sending here. They riot and cause problems. Mexico would rather they wreak havoc in the US with the added bonus of remittances home.

    I believe that anyone dressed in cammies, wearing a ski mask and NOT SPEAKING ENGLISH is referred to as “enemy combatant”, and should be treated as such.

    Now they admit that this is a problem between “developed” vs. “non developed” nations. Nothing like admitting that Mexico is a mud hole. Would this be the same as “haves” and “have nots”? Shouldn’t they have the guts to create a nation of “haves”?

    Well, well, well… John McCain has challanged Barack Obama to meet him for a town hall meeting with La Raza. Isn’t that a terrorist group?

    No Old Soldier, they are most likely to be the Presidential advisers on Mexican-American affairs (aka How to screw the Gringo taxpayers out of the maximum amount possible)…regardless of which one of them wins!
