USNS Cesar Chavez Christening Ceremony, May 5, 2012
The recent decision by the Secretary of the Navy to name a new cargo ship after farm labor leader Cesar Chavez apparently has rankled conservatives in Congress. The ship, a dry cargo and ammunition ship under construction in San Diego, is due to be launched May 5.
Conservatives decry the ship naming process as becoming politicized; proponents claim the process has always been political, and support the name as an honor “to not just him but all Latinos who have built and defended this country.”
Ships have traditionally been named for historical figures that have played important roles in U.S. history. Chavez served in the Navy from 1946 to 1948. He founded the National Farm Workers Association in 1962, which later became the United Farm Workers. By using non-violent tactics, reminiscent of Martin Luther King Jr’s tactics for civil rights, he made people aware of the poor working conditions of farm workers. He fought for safer conditions, better wages, and recognition of the importance and dignity of all farm workers. He truly was an American hero to thousands of Latino immigrants, farm worker or not.

The violent César Chávez legacy towards illegal aliens
October 10, 2012
By: Timothy Whiteman
To many on the political left, community organizer César Chávez, founder of the United Farm Workers Union (UFW), is venerated and looked upon almost as the Patron Saint of the Downtrodden and Abused, especially among the Latino community.
Despite Barack Obama recently designating the home of Chávez as America's newest national monument, the labor leader has a past history with illegal immigrants that most Obamanistas would rather not be known.
As reported by Fox News, while speaking at the dedication ceremony of Chávez's sprawling 187-acre hacienda grande named La Paz (The Peace), Obama proclaimed Chávez as;
"a hero who brought hope to millions of poor, disenfranchised farm workers who otherwise might have remained 'invisible' to much of the nation."
The Chief Executive went on to state;
"Our world is a better place because Cesar Chavez decided to change it."
But Not So Good For Illegal Immigrants...
