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

    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?

    Just because the official government statistics make it clear that Obama deported more Hispanics than any other president, that’s just because he had all the official government statistics fabricated. I foolishly looked at those official statistics and posted them here an election or so ago, but was corrected by one of our fine, upstanding Tea types.


    And if Obama is deporting more Hispanics than any other president, why did Hispanics overwhelmingly vote for him in the ‘12 election? Just because he campaigned in Spanish, and reliable Spanish spokespersons all told the Hispanics that Obama had only deported criminals, not law abiding Hispanics, even if they didn’t have papers. (Of course, if they didn’t have papers, they were deported as the heinous criminals they were, but still, Obama only deported criminals.) But Obama deported quietly, while previous presidents staged a very few, very public raids to convince the voters they were tough on immigration (while trying to reassure Hispanics). Obama did the opposite, and it seems to have worked, at least as far as re-election was concerned.


    But Obama’s fabrications have caught up with him, and he’ll NEVER be re-elected again!

    If they’re here illegally they get deported.

    Southern Arizona was part of a state of Mexico, and not in same territory as northern Arizona. That was why the Gasden Purchase was necessary later (so railroads could go through the southern route).

    Your claim that Mexico’s claims were tenuous are silly. The United States recognized those claims.
    From Wikipedia:
    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo specified the major consequence of the war: the forced Mexican Cession of the territories of Alta California and New Mexico to the U.S. in exchange for $15 million.

    You don’t pay that kind of money for something you argue is tenuous. That amount was about the same as the US paid for the Louisiana Purchase. (and if you want tenuous claims, just look at the history of French Louisiana.)

    And of course you ignored New Mexico and California which were well settled.

    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.

    If you look at the history, the founding of the Mexica people, you will see that they are the remnants of the Mayan royalty that were run out of town… They ended up near Mexico City and started “doing things” to support the ruler… Eventually, they started asking for “favors” in return for their menial labors, until there were too many of them to refuse the favors… It is their genetic M.O. At this point.

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