MINNEAPOLIS – U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) wore a shirt advocating for the elimination of national borders while participating in a May Day parade this weekend in Minneapolis.
A video of Ellison walking the parade route was posted to social media, showing the congressman taking pictures with supporters while sporting a shirt that reads “yo no creo en fronteras.”
In English, the shirt translates to “I do not believe in borders.”
The shirt is designed by the Los Angeles-based urban folk band Las Cafeteras. The music group uses their platform to advocate for open borders, with their Facebook page promoting illegal immigration saying “I’ll cross” in Spanish.
Las Cafeteras’ music reflects the same message, with the lyrics of one of their songs defiantly rejecting immigration laws:
I don’t believe in borders, I don’t believe in borders,
I shall cross, I shall cross, I shall cross
Ellison has made headlines recently for championing far left positions including greater redistribution of wealth in the United States. In an interview earlier this year, Ellison called for a maximum wage, saying executives making far more than their employees should be taxed more to make up for the inequality.
Following the controversial interview, Ellison praised the idea of a universal basic income as a solution, saying the concept “has a lot of merit.”
Ellison also raised eyebrows last month when he told Democrats “women are dying because we are losing elections” and they “don’t have the right to lose a damn election.”
