A Detroit-based group of racially-focused socialists named “By Any Means Necessary” is encouraging migrants in Mexico to march on the border and try to “remove” President Donald Trump.
They dispatched organizers to Tijuana, Mexico and distributed literature to migrants blaming the U.S. for conditions in their country and saying of the border “Open It Up Or We’ll Shut It Down!”

A Detroit-based faction operating in Tijuana that’s encouraging the migrant caravan to march to the U.S. border has a history of violence and has been disavowed by Communist and progressive organizations.
BAMN, a Detroit-based group whose motto is “Trump must go or be removed BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY,” is inciting the migrants to march to the border. Its flier, titled “Open It Up Or We’ll Shut It Down! Everyone Must Be Let In!” was distributed to the migrants and its banner hung in the Benito Juarez sports complex that housed the caravan.
The faction, originally dedicated to affirmative action and affiliated with the Revolutionary Workers League, has been repeatedly condemned by groups it has crossed paths with, dating back two decades.
In 1995, the Socialist Party USA, Democratic Socialists of America, the Solidarity National Political Committee, and a long list of similar groups wrote: “As socialists, we condemn the actions of the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action By Any Means Necessary and the Revolutionary Workers League.”
In 2003, progressive populist and former Berkeley organizer Nathan Newman described his encounter with the group when trying to rally for affirmative action.
When the University of California Regents voted to end affirmative action in the university system, an incredibly vibrant, multiracial student-led group emerged called Diversity in Action. For the first time in a number of years, Berkeley would see mass political mobilization from across the campus, including eventually a 5,000-person rally on Sproul plaza. More
Open it up or we’ll shut it down? Here’s some moronic Leftist reasoning for you. A madness has taken hold of the leftist mob that is turning into an uncontrollable anarchistic destructive force.
I wish the people that want socialism would move to a country that supports their thinking. What makes them think that our resources are limitless?
