Keith Ellison caught pushing a radical message in Spanish - here's what it means

Democratic National Committee deputy chair Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) was caught wearing what many would consider a very radical immigration message on his t-shirt in Spanish.

Here's what the message read

Ellison was greeting supporters in a Cinco de Mayo celebration in Minnesota while sporting a shirt with the Spanish slogan, “yo no creo en fronteras.” The statement translates to “I don’t believe in borders.”

The graphic design also highlighted two words in red reading "no fronteras," which translates to "no borders."

President Trump had often proclaimed on the 2016 campaign trail that a nation without borders is not a nation at all, a message clearly contrary to that of Ellison's shirt.

A pattern of extremism

Ellison has himself been a controversial figure in the Democratic party - in January he advocated in favor of the extremist and often violent left-wing group "Antifa" because he liked that it struck "fear in the heart" of Trump. In April he said in a speech that if Democrats don't win more elections, more women would die as a result.

"Women are dying because we are losing elections," he exclaimed to loud applause. "We don’t have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win! We have to win!”

Ellison also compared illegal aliens to Jews escaping persecution in Nazi Germany, causing a quick backlash against the comparison.

Here's video of Ellison wearing the controversial message:
