Undocumented Actors Sue Screen Actors Guild

HOLLYWOOD — Members of the migrant caravan who marched thousands of miles from Central America through Mexico to the U.S. Border at Tijuana, have filed a law suit against the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists for discrimination.

“We are willing to play the roles and do the stunts that American actors will not do,” said Monte Ricardobaum from Honduras. “We have come here to seek a better life for our families and now the Oscar people want to keep us out, just like Trump.”

Ricardobaum and others applied for membership in SAG-AFTRA, citing their performances on Mainstream Media television news outlets and submitting paystubs from the Congress of Latin American Progressives, a George Soros funded organization, which financed and produced the epic saga of their journey to freedom.

“Unfortunately, these people violated Global Rule One, which is never work on a non-SAG project. And this CLAP thing was definitely a non-union deal,” said Clinton Svinktaogle, SAG-AFTRA legal counsel. “If you don’t follow the rules, you don’t get in. It’s as simple as that.”

SAG-AFTRA represents approximately 160,000 actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other media professionals. Their members are the faces and voices that entertain and inform America and the world.

Julianne Moore has been nominated five times for an Academy Award and won the Oscar for “Best Actress” in 2015 for her performance in Still Alice.
