An Arizona Antifa chapter burned a poster Sunday that honored a cop killed by an illegal alien.
Antifascist Action Phoenix claimed to remove “hundreds” of posters at Arizona State University depicting individuals killed by illegal aliens. The group burned at least one of the posters featuring Brandon Mendoza, a Mesa police officer killed by an illegal alien driving the wrong way down a road, according to AZCentral.
“We successfully removed hundreds of racist posters and symbols and then had a nice barbecue,” said Antifascist Action Phoenix on Facebook, remarking that it had removed pictures of individuals “who had been killed by someone ‘illegal.’ No person is illegal and cherry picking 3 cases out of millions to boost your racist agenda is bullshit, we expected more.”
The Antifa group posted images on Twitter, in which Mendoza’s name, his May 12, 2014 date of death, and #NeverForget can be seen.

Unite America First, a group advocating for American patriotism, hung the fliers of Mendoza. They also hung posters of ones depicting convenience store employee Grant Ronnebeck, who was shot by an illegal alien robber, as well as Kate Steinle, shot by an illegal alien previously deported five times from the United States. The patriot group live streamed a video depicting the removal of the fliers by the Antifa members, as well as the arrest of one of the antifascists (around 24:30 in the video below).
“They changed their hoods from white hoods to black hoods!” yelled one of the individuals associated with Unite America First, comparing Antifa to the Ku Klux Klan.
“If you’re here illegally, you can go back with your family. You don’t have to be split up,” said one of the patriot group’s organizers. He then addressed the parents of Americans slain by illegal aliens, saying “the only place they can visit their children anymore is at the graveside.”
“Why do we hear about illegal alien dreams, but we don’t hear about [the victims’] dreams?” he asked.
