Neo-Nazis declare - Report an Illegal Day

Copwatchers, Community Anti-racists, Anarchists and Immigrant Rights
advocates:
Spread the word and take action!

The Phoenix Arizona chapter of The National Socialist Movement (NSM), a white supremacist hate group, is calling for a "Report an Illegal Day" to all NSM chapters and members across the nation to coincide with Cinco de Mayo this year. They are asking people to call DHS, IRS and ICE to report suspected undocumented immigrants and to target businesses that may hire undocumented immigrants. NSM groups are planning on passing out anti-immigration and neo-Nazi propaganda as well.

Portland Oregon has both an NSM chapter and an NSM skinhead army chapter which has been nicknamed the Wotan's Wolves Northwest by some members.

More information on The National Socialist Movement (NSM):

"For nearly three decades after it was founded in 1974, the NSM was overshadowed by the National Alliance and Aryan Nations, American's longtime leading neo-Nazi organizations, and later by the World Church of the Creator. But while those groups have largely imploded in recent years following the deaths or imprisonment of their leaders, the NSM has thrived. From a forgotten bit player on the neo-Nazi scene, it has grown into the largest and most active neo-Nazi organization in the country. In addition to starting 26 new local chapters in just over six months, the NSM recently launched its own white power music label and distribution business, NSM88 Records and set up 88PAC ("88″ is movement shorthand for "Heil Hitler"), a political action committee that's registered with the Federal Election Commission to raise money for "pro-White" politicians, including NSM candidates for president and vice-president in 2008."
