Anti-immigration convoy cancels Texas event over 'death threats'

Anti immigrant convoyA convoy of anti-immigration activists touring the border with Mexico to defend the US from “invasion” has cancelled an event in Texas because of alleged death threats.

The 30-vehicle convoy aborted a planned rally in El Paso on Sunday over safety concerns, said the convoy organiser, Eric Odom.

“We had to cancel that because of death threats against our crew and convoy,” he told the Guardian, speaking by phone from a New Mexico highway. “We’re not into that. We are a very peaceful convoy and we want to show that the border is very dangerous and open.”

Odom said the threats were made via social media. He declined to give details but said the warnings had been saved with screen grabs.

The convoy started on Friday in Murrieta, the California town where protesters last month blocked buses filled with undocumented children and women from Central America. It hopes to inspire other citizen border patrols with the “spirit of Murrieta”.

TVNL Comment:  "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."  Yeah, right.
