President Barack Obama has set aside 30 minutes Wednesday to showcase a new movie about Cesar Chavez, who is being portrayed by Democrats as an advocate for immigrants, even though he successfully minimized the employment of foreign migrant laborers.
Chavez campaigned against the hiring of Mexican migrant workers. He described them as strikebreakers who would cross a union picket line, and he eventually boosted farmworkers’ salaries in the 1960s and 1970s by minimizing the use of migrant labor.
Chavez died in 1993, just the Democratic Party began to gain votes in California and Texas from millions of illegal immigrants who were amnestied in 1986.
