Houston Rallies Against Minutemen

By Paul Hill

HOUSTON - On 10/09/05 a coalition of Houston progressives called "Coalition against intolerance and for respect" gathered in a local park to express their opposition to the minutemen. The minutemen have been stepping up their assault on immigrants in Houston recently. About 250 people attended the rally. There were a number of culturally diverse speakers who aroused the crowd with fiery speeches and slogans such as "The people united will never be defeated!"

Lorenzo Cano of the Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education told the World "There is no undocumented worker problem...that is a myth. Any way you look at this issue of undocumented workers in the U.S. being a problem cannot hold up under most reasonable analysis. Even conservative economists agree that the presence of undocumented workers improves our country more than if they were not here."
