    Gresch: We already did most of it.

    Alcarez won’t be happy until Mexico annexes us and the continent becomes a giant Tijuana.

    Works for me. If only he’d actually do that!

    Obama has deported more than Bush, hmm. Mexico used to be most of the area now the U.S. southwest, and Spain was earliest to settle most of the south as well. War, theft, and purchases made the land the U.S..

    We need immigration reform, and bring back a viable “guest worker” program. Interesting how many HIGH PAYING jobs in the U.S. are now going to Chinese, Vietnamese, and other foreign workers, but farm workers, who make a lot less, and do jobs most Americans don’t want, and won’t take, from Mexico and Central/South America, are the targets every time.

    Arizona’s “driving while brown” law led to a number of folks whose families had lived on that land for over 200 years, got stopped as “suspicious”, while “invaders” from Michigan never got bothered.

    Lalo is just well aware of the hidden, or open, bigotry that is getting worse in America. “Give me your poor”, has morphed to some of the worst xenophobia in our history. That’s not a “liberal” observation, it’s history that even the Irish, Germans, Jews, and Italians,while subjected to discrimination at times, never endured the persistence that applies to those often just THOUGHT TO BE, from “south of the border”.

    dtroutma, you do realize that Mexico’s claim to most of what today is the US Southwest was tenious at best. In 1846 at the time of the Mexican-American war the Mexican presence in what became the Arizona territory was a mere 11 men and an officer occuplying two adobe huts at the “Precidio” of Tucson. Outside that government presence there were a half dozen or so Catholic missions between Tucson and Nogales.
    The portion of that state (Gila River and north there of) aquired by the US as result of that war had no official Mexican presence. The portion south of that river was purchased in the Gadsen Purchase… a straight up real estate deal.
    So, the claim all that land “belonged” to Mexico prior to 1846 is very tenious at best.
    Of course, things like Raza and Hispanic studies programs like that of the U of A or the one in the TUSD that are run and heavily populated with the far Left have invented revisionist histories that attempt to pervert the facts to no end.
    One last thing; Why on earth would the US or its population want to emulate Mexico in any way? Mexico has for most of its history been ruled by a dictatorship, been rife with graft and corruption, mired in the Third World, and could even be characterized at times as a failed state?

    Then they must be illegal. They only work a few days a month, in any case, and do nothing of value, so, no loss.

    Might also be worth looking into some of those Spanish land grants in New Mexico that are still legally binding. Or, check out Pio Pico in California. Or, the Hispanic history of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, etc.

    To qualify, I should have said “Hispanics”, but I don’t like that term, as many of my “Mexican” friends who are fifth and sixth generation born in the U.S. also prefer.

    But of course all those Birchers and birthers know that John Wayne won the battle of the Alamo, and also led the first REAL European settlers into California.

    The turkey is here LEGALLY! Actually simple. Years of breaking the laws of the land does not make them legal.
