Buyer re: Cesar Chavez and Illegal Immigration
You might want to do more research on this before continuing to sell this product. Many of the farmworkers on the fields were undocumented immigrants. Chavez was opposed to growers hiring workers as scabs during the boycott because this harmed the movement. This is very different from what you are saying. His purpose was not to control borders nor was he anti-immigrant. Your lesson is misleading and as you are a teacher, I feel you are responsible to teach this part of history correctly to children rather than manipulate facts in order to support your own political thinking.

Washington Post editorial writer Ruben Navarrette, Jr. just had an editorial in the paper this week. In it he describes the "good" Chavez and the "bad Chavez, his words not mine, but he backs up my facts with this, "The indefensible; Chavez, his cronies and the union itself were essentially surrogates for the INS. More concerned with maintaining leverage than protecting human rights, Chavez and Co. would CALL THE INS TO DEMAND THAT THEY COME AND ARREST ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO CROSSED THE PICKET LINES..." You can read the whole editorial in the March 24 Post. Obviously Navarrette was and still is sympathetic to the illegal immigrants, so you can be sure Chavez indeed turned them into the INS.
Navarrette has been researching and writing about Chavez, Delores Huerta and the UFW for over 25 years. The bottom line? American born Chavez knew that whether a continuous trickle or flood of illegal immigrants, their very presence depressed fair pay, decent hours, and safety for those United Farm Workers he represented. So if illegal immigrants, being taken advantage of as scabs and strikebreakers by their usurpation of jobs threatened the jobs of legal workers, Chavez felt no compunction to call the INS.
You should do a little more unbiased research yourself without eliminating inconvenient truths with which you don't politically or socially agree.
If you want a refund, you can have a refund, but I won't retract the VALIDATED and SUBSTANTIATED evidence, which I have just validated and substantiated to you from a primary source.
BTW, I was asked to present this documented activity to 200+ students who walked out of my high school one Cinco de Mayo b/c their walkout and demonstration was based on bad history and emotional hype induced by others with a definite political agenda. After I presented this very information, not one student walked out.
You can presume whatever you like about my politics, but the activity is based on provable facts, but both the good and the bad facts.

Hello, Elaine. I really like your handout on Colonial Grievances- but, after I purchased the handout and downloaded the file- the pictures were gone...:(

The pictures were the main reason I purchased the handout...any way you would send it to my e-mail directly, please?

Thank you.

Sure thing; look for it in your school email.
This is the first notification from any sales that pictures didn't go through, so you may want to turn off your pop-up blocker, temporarily, when making other purchases.
Thank you for your business and after you use I would appreciate a rating and feedback. Please recommend my store to your colleagues.
