The below was received as a statement from Sin Fronteras of Portland. (and yes I have categorized this as Terrorism and yes this seems to be a division of the group involved in illegal alien Elvira Arellano's case, the fugitive hiding out in a church in Chicago. The Chicago Sin Fronteras group is headed up by Emma Lozano, the wife of Rev. Slim Coleman who runs the church Arellano is hiding out in.) Sin Fronteras translates to "Without Borders".
Sin Fronteras Portland is building a network of autonomous working groups in the Portland area with the goal of bringing the anticapitalist and antiauthoritarian struggles of Latin America to the USA. We see groups like the Zapatistas, the Magonistas in Oaxaca, and many others as examples of revolution in action.
We recognize that until we overcome white supremacy, capitalism, the state, and other forms of domination, there will not be real justice for migrants, for the poor and oppressed here and elsewhere. We live in the heart of a global empire of misery and it is our responsibility to destroy the imperialism that starves and devastates the world, for the benefit of its rulers and at the expense of everyone else.
We support the demands for just immigration reform brought forth by the Coalition for Immigrant Rights but it is obvious that we need much more than 'reform'; we need radical social change.
We support a diversity of tactics in the struggle for revolutionary change. That said, we sincerely doubt that wearing red, white, and blue; lobbying the political parties; and pandering to the bourgeois press will bring us any closer to obtaining justice for migrants and their families, or any of the demands advanced by the Coalition. These strategies emphasize assimilation to the "American Way;" we don't believe that assimilation to this racist and classist system is the basis for immigrants' right to live and work here. Migration and freedom of movement are human rights.
Virtually the same May Day march was organized last year, with the same tactics and on a larger scale, all over the country, yet since then we've only seen the border increasingly more militarized, ICE raids and deportations increase drastically, more and more families broken and people living in fear!
We say that there are NO 'ilegal' men, women, or children; there are illegitimate states, unjust laws, and national orders based in imperialist violence.
As a collective Sin Fronteras Portland recognizes that May Day means more than the history of the Haymarket martyrs, or the current struggle for immigrant rights in this country as framed by mainstream political organizations; it means solidarity among all workers, globalized resistance to all forms of oppression. This May Day we're bringing the message that in order for migrant rights to exist and be respected, and in order to have social justice, forget about 'reform' - this white supremacist social system can't be reformed: we need revolutionary strategy, tactics, and outcomes NOW.
Down with the border!
Down with the racist state!
Freedom for all!
Organize the revolution!

Any questions about the intent of these racial hate groups yet?
