Raymond Herrera of California's Crusader is outraged that illegal aliens are taking the prior accomplishments of Americans like himself and making it their own story. They are trumpeting the success of millions of Americans of Hispanic descent and using it as a tool to pass amnesty and to receive special services.
Herrera is a Vietnam veteran whose father served in World War II. His family has served our country with honor and dignity and I proudly stand by Americans like Raymond Herrera in this fight for our country.

After seeing this news story and video, I was outraged, too! How dare these brazen illegal foreign intruders attempt to HIJACK the GREAT achievements of Hispanic-descended American patriots like Raymond Herrera, who served in Vietnam and whose father served in World War II! Ray, my late maternal uncle, my mom's big brother, served in Korea. As children of LEGAL escapees from WORLD WAR I and COMMUNISM, my uncle and mom were raised to be ARDENT, APPRECIATIVE American patriots, and each one handed down this SAME priceless legacy to his OWN children! Ray, I am ALL FOR YOU in your fight to preserve the REAL truth about fellow patriots like yourself!

Thank you, Raymond for standing up and speaking up for so many of us Americans of Hispanic descent. I am disgusted with these illegal alien INVADERS and I want to see them stopped. America is OUR home, not theirs and by coming here illegally they are TRESPASSERS. We must secure and protect our borders and enforce our current laws to get rid of the ones who are already here. If we don't do it now we will have nobody to blame but ourselves when we see our country torn apart by them.

Pobrecito. Ignorant vendidos (sell-outs) like Raymond Herrera are confused about their racial identity. (And probably sexual orientation as well.) You can tell by his hatred filled rants and nonsense speeches against his own people. He craves attention because he has no other means and purpose in life. The problem is that, to the rest of the world, without his Vietnam Veteran cap, he is just another brown skinned Mexican like the rest of us.
Due to his insecurity, he has to constantly go around “reminding” others that he is not like the rest of us “lowly” Mexicans. That he is a patriotic American “hispanic.” Well, have I got news for him. He is only a token little puppet boy that bigots love to use to make their case against illegal immigration. Deep down, he knows that he has to watch his back from his white co-patriots because when push comes to shove, they will throw him under the truck just as fast as any other Mexican. Deep down he also knows that as a "hispanic," he has to constantly jump 3 feet higher than everyone else, just to be respected and appreciated at a white persons eye level. This truth is something that he cannot or will not admit to himself. It is obvious that he is frustrated for not being a tall, blue eyed, blond haired white guy. How do I know this? Because when I was younger I too craved white acceptance and was lost as he until one day I saw the light and became aware of what I am: A proud Mexican-American. One that does not turn his back on less fortunate immigrants who are doing the backbreaking work others will not do.
Over the years, I have met many unfortunate “lost souls” as Mr. Herrera, and I am proud to say that through a 10 step, detoxification program, I have successfully guided them back to reality and pride in their ethnic heritage. One day I would like to meet this Mr. Herrera and do the same for him. And as a bonus, I’d like to convince him that his anger and ridiculous rants are also not good for his blood pressure and health. If he doesn’t change his behavior soon, he is going to suffer a massive coronary.
Tell him to give me a call.

And above my friends is proof that there are racists other than whites. Mr. Cepeda puts his race and ethnicity above all else. Meanwhile the rest of us in this country are actually trying to work together and continue to build a great country for all
