Chavez didn’t want illegals here

Wetbacks…’cause that’s what they are.  You don’t like the term?  Tough shit.  It has nothing to do with Mexican-Americans. (God, I hate these hyphenated terms!) A wetback is here illegally, period.  And Cesar Chavez didn’t want them here.  He realized that without competing labor, wages would go up for hi s constituency.  Read to the end of the short article and you’ll see that even an economically illiterate institution like the NYT’s acknowledges the point.
