"We are slowly losing the informal, special status that we have enjoyed at the U.S. - Mexico border prior to 9/11 tragedy. The U.S. Government officials are preparing to implement a new immigration and border enforcement policies that does not include or resolve Indigenous immigration and border rights issues and concerns.

The Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras, calls together all Indigenous people of conscience, relatives, friends, elders, youth and people interested in promoting Indigenous Rights, preservation of Indigenous ways/traditions and language and environmental protection of Mother Earth.

In the Spirit of Our Grandfather, Our Elders, Keepers of Our Traditional Ways, Warriors for Social Justice and Change and all Indigenous Pueblos must come together to protect, promote Indigenous rights and continue the fight for what we've got!

Our Elders started the fight many, many moons ago that is why we have what we've got. 'THINK INDIGENOUS - We are HUMAN BEINGs with RIGHTS!'"
