In the apple- and grape-laden Yakima valley in southern Washington state, Latinos drawn here by fruit-picking jobs have become the fastest growing sector of the population over the last decade. Politically, however, the Hispanic families who make up the majority of this archipelago of 10 towns stretching 40 miles southeast from county seat in Yakima have virtually no voice.

Two neighboring counties are now majority Latino and both the city and County of Yakima are nearing 50% Latino – up from 33% in the 2000 census. Yakima County ranks first in the US in the number of all fruit trees that are handpicked yearly by farm laborers – and almost all the field hands are Latinos.

Unsurprisingly, the presence of this large immigrant group is affecting the way Hispanics think of themselves. One aspect of the report that is bound to provoke controversy — and, in some quarters, resentment — is how few Hispanics identify themselves first and foremost as Americans. Only 8 percent of immigrants, 35 percent of second-generation Hispanics and 48 percent of third-generation Hispanics do, according to the Pew study. The question is, why?

The Reconquista Movement: Mexico’s Plan for the American Southwest

Mexicans are still sore about the Mexican War (1846 – 1848). They can’t take back the Southwest, Texas and California, by force, therefore Mexican nationalists have restored to a stealth campaign of population growth called La Reconquista. Mexicans in Mexico consider chicanos living north of the border to be Mexican citizens, Aztecs. Assimilation therefore becomes a moot point. Me veo ilegal, “Do I look illegal?”, can pertain to any potential or actual law-breaker, but is intended to arouse sympathy for those who can not conceive or implement a Mexican Dream.

In order for Mexico to expand its middle class, domesic and foreign investment is required.

None of this can happen today, given the obstacles posed by the country’s laws and attitudes. And they are many: the absence of competition; the monopolistic practices of business, the regulatory agencies, lack of teeth, the overall crony nature of Mexican capitalism, and the overt protection enjoyed by, among others, the media, oil, and electric power. All this insures that only the brave or reckless will venture into Mexico…

These campesinos think their piece of the American Dream belongs to them by right of possession. Make no mistake, this movemiento is real; it has existed for decades.

Mexican Racist Prof Calls for Reconquista

By: Allan Wall
VDARE.com | Saturday, June 05, 2004

Jose Angel Gutierrez, political science professor and former head of the Mexican-American Studies Center at the University of Texas, Arlington, is a busy man.

Gutierrez was recently in Mexico City at the invitation of the Mexican government to participate in the binational Reconquista jamboree reported in my last column.

The very next day (April 30th, 2004), he was in Kansas City speaking at something called the “ Latino Civil Rights Summit .”

There he boasted that:

We are the future of America. Unlike any prior generation, we now have the critical mass. We’re going to Latinize this country.”

In a puff piece on the conference, Lewis W. Diuguid of the Kansas City Star reported that

“Gutierrez said people from Mexico, Central and South America are not immigrating to the United States. They are simply migrating because this land had been theirs…Hispanics should never put up with others telling them to go back where they came from.” [Hispanics will help build future of U.S., April 18th, 2004]

That argument, based on absurd historical claims, completely invalidates the existence of the U.S.A.

Gutierrez also discussed Hispanic demographics. He told the audience that half of the Hispanic population is under the age of 21 — and that for every Latino who dies, 5 white people die!

Gutierrez has been saying this sort of thing for some time. Speaking in California in 1995, he said:

The border remains a military zone. We remain a hunted people. Now you think you have a destiny to fulfill in the land that historically has been ours for forty thousand years. And we’re a new Mestizo nation. And they want us to discuss civil rights. Civil rights. What law made by white men to oppress all of us of color, female and male. This is our homeland. We cannot—we will not—and we must not be made illegal in our own homeland. We are not immigrants that came from another country to another country. We are migrants, free to travel the length and breadth of the Americas because we belong here. We are millions. We just have to survive. We have an aging white America. They are not making babies. They are dying. It’s a matter of time. The explosion is in our population.”

The same themes as Kansas City—a claim to U.S. territory, denial that the U.S. is a legitimate nation-state, exultation over Hispanic demographic growth.

If a white English-speaking American expresses displeasure over the prediction that his ethnic group (if present trends continue) is destined to lose its majority status, he will be called a racist.”

But Hispanic activists publicly gloat over the [population] increase of their ethnic group. Why isn’t that racist?

Who is Jose Angel Gutierrez ? He’s technically an American citizen, born in Crystal City, Texas in 1944—an example of the great National Question truth that, just because the cat has kittens in the oven, that doesn’t make them biscuits.

He is activist and lawyer, has served as county judge in Texas, and is an author who has penned such classics as A Chicano Manual On How To Handle Gringos. Since his youth, he has been active in the Chicano movement, and was one of the founders of MAYO, the Mexican American Youth Organization.

Texas Democratic Congressman Henry B. Gonzalez made some interesting comments about MAYO, entered in the Congressional Record, April 3rd, 1969:

MAYO styles itself the embodiment of good and the Anglo-American as the incarnation of evil. That is not merely ridiculous, it is drawing fire from the deepest wellsprings of hate. The San Antonio leader of MAYO, Jose Angel Gutierrez, may think himself something of a hero, but he is, in fact, only a benighted soul if he believes that in the espousal of hatred he will find love. He is simply deluded if he believes that the wearing of fatigues . . . makes his followers revolutionaries . . . One cannot fan the flames of bigotry one moment and expect them to disappear the next .” ( Nativist and Racist Movements in the U.S. and their Aftermath, Yale-New Haven Teachers Institute, Henry A. Rhodes)

Back then, Gutierrez said

“We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.”

Later, Gutierrez told The San Antonio Express and News (April 11th, 1969) that the term “Gringo ” referred to a bigoted and racist individual or institution. And “ kill ” just meant the elimination of the political, economic and social foundation of “ the Gringo .”

Oh, well—that’s OK then!

Bottom line – Gutierrez wants gringos out of Texas.

Here are excerpts from an interview in 2000:

Q: “If the main goal (of the old Chicano movement) then was to reclaim Aztlan and control all the institutions of civil society, what is the main goal now?”

GUTIERREZ’ answer: “I think it is still the same thing. You hear the Hispanic Republicans talk about the same thing. … this idea has even been co-opted by the Republicans. ….The Hispanic Democrats and Mexican-American Democrats and Tejano Democrats, synonymous in Texas, they are doing the same thing….. ”

Q: “How are Mexican immigrants of today different from Mexican immigrants of decades ago?”

GUTIERREZ:” They are different in one salient aspect…they are keeping their Mexicanness. ..The Mexicanos that are coming today, even though they are political refugees and migrants returning to their homeland, are keeping their Mexicanness … They are recreating Mexico here. I think they are doing it because of the sheer numbers. …”

(Fort Worth Star Telegram, October 18th, 2000)

Quite so. Isn’t that just what we’ve been saying here at VDARE.com? The interview continues:

Q: What is irredentism [ethnic nationalism], and what evidence do you see that it is happening?

Gutierrez:” The evidence is their display of their Mexicanness. …These folks now are engaged in active political activity in the U.S. which is unprecedented. They are truly binational citizens. It’s not uncommon to see undocumented Mexicans protesting in front of INS in downtown Dallas. ….They have also now gotten dual citizenship . … [The] Chicano generation…only wanted to carve out half of [19th-century Mexico]…. These folks want it all. They want to recreate all of Mexico and join all of Mexico into one. And they are going to do that, even if it’s just demographically… They are going to have political sovereignty over the Southwest and many parts of the Midwest . ”

Jose Angel Gutierrez is not a madman. Gutierrez is a man who has dedicated his life to a cause.

And he now senses triumph is at hand.

He’s been doing this in George W. Bush’s Texas, at a university for which Bush had ultimate responsibility. (UT is a state university, its Board of Regents is appointed by the Governor.)

We ask, not for the first time: What is Bush thinking?

For the uninformed, gringo means foreigner, when en realidad, por aquí, en este pais, los Mexicanos/Aztecas son los gringos malditos.

The Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan is a racist organization intent on implementing the reconquista. MEChA’s symbol is an eagle with a stick of dynamite in one claw and a macahuittle in the other. The macahuittle is a club studded with obsidian that was effective in tribal warfare but against a blade of Toledo steel it proved ineffective because a thrust is quicker that a swing.

One of America’s greatest strengths has always been taking in immigrants from cultures around the world, and assimilating them into our country as -Americans. By being citizens of the U.S. we are Americans first, and never in other national loyalties.

For hordes of illegal immigrants pouring across our borders, this is totally opposed by MEChA, to whom they say:

“Chicano is our identity; it defines who we are as people. It rejects the notion that we…should assimilate into the Anglo-American melting pot…Aztlan was the legendary homeland of the Aztecas … It became synonymous with the vast territories of the Southwest, brutally stolen from a Mexican people marginalized and betrayed by the hostile custodians of the Manifest Destiny.” (Statement on University of Oregon MEChA Website, Jan. 3, 2006)

MEChA isn’t at all shy about their goals, or their views of other races. Their founding principles are contained in these words in “El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan” (The Spiritual Plan for Aztlan):

“In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. … Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. … We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.”

If these morally sickening MEChA quotes were coming from some fringe website, Americans could at least console themselves that it was just a small group of nuts behind it. Nearly every racial and ethnic group has some shady characters and positions in its past and some unbalanced individuals today claiming racial superiority and demanding separatism. But this is coming straight from the official MEChA sites at Georgetown University, the University of Texas, UCLA, University of Michigan, University of Colorado, University of Oregon, and many other colleges and universities around the country.

These Aztec barbaroi believe: Por la Raza todo. Fuera de la Raza nada “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.” Well, isn’t that special. These mestizos are pure and simple racists. For them, mixed race indigenous peoples, borders mean nothing because according to their mythology, they originated in mythical Aztlan, roughly the four corners area of the American Southwest. Mexicans without distinction are Aztecs.

According to their own legends, they originated from a place called Aztlan, somewhere in north or northwest of Mexico. At that time the Aztecs (who referred to themselves as the Mexica or Tenochca) were a small, nomadic, Nahuatl-speaking aggregation of tribal peoples living on the margins of civilized Mesoamerica. Sometime in the 12th century they embarked on a period of wandering and in the 13th century settled in the central basin of México. Continually dislodged by the small city-states that fought one another in shifting alliances, the Aztecs finally found refuge on small islands in Lake Texcoco where, in 1325, they founded the town of TENOCHTITLAN (modern-day Mexico City). The term Aztec, originally associated with the migrant Mexica, is today a collective term, applied to all the peoples linked by trade, custom, religion, and language to these founders.

Uncommon common sense concerning illegal immigration from the New York Times.

Letter
Illegal Immigrants
Published: February 25, 2011

To the Editor:

“Dreaming of Having an American Life in Full,” by Michael Winerip (On Education column, Feb. 21), tells only one side of the story.

I am sympathetic to illegal immigrant children like Isabel Castillo who were brought here by their parents. Because their parents disregarded America’s immigration laws, they are in a difficult position. But by granting citizenship, the United States would actually reward their illegal immigrant parents, who knowingly violated our laws. It would perpetuate the problem the bill claims to solve.

It would also penalize the children of American citizens and those who immigrated here legally.

Once they become citizens, illegal immigrants could petition for their parents to be legalized; the parents could then bring in others in an endless chain.

If the United States grants amnesty to those who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents without first enforcing our immigration laws, we will undoubtedly have to deal with this problem again in the future.

The American people want Congress to focus on creating jobs and getting Americans back to work. Currently, an estimated eight million illegal immigrants hold American jobs. Amnesty will give illegal immigrants a legal right to those jobs and encourage more illegal immigrants who are hoping for yet another round of amnesty. That’s not fair to children of American citizens and legal residents, who have a right to those already scarce American jobs.

Man charged with 3 murder counts in N. Va. attacks
By MATTHEW BARAKAT Associated Press © 2011 The Associated Press

Feb. 11, 2011, 8:46PM

MANASSAS, Va. — A Salvadoran man who was ordered deported nearly a decade ago but never left has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder in a series of shootings and a knife attack in a Virginia suburb of Washington, authorities said Friday.

Jose Oswaldo Reyes Alfaro, an illegal immigrant, was charged in the pair of attacks blocks apart Thursday night that left three people dead and three others injured, Manassas Police Chief Doug Keen said.

Reyes Alfaro knew all of the victims, he said, but police were still sorting out the exact relationships. The county’s chief prosecutor said he’ll likely seek to upgrade the charges to capital murder, which could carry the death penalty.

The killings touched off further discussion of illegal immigration in Manassas and surrounding Prince William County, which was one of the early flashpoints in the national debate over whether local authorities should play a role in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws.

“It’s another abject failure of the federal government,” said state Delegate Jackson Miller, R-Manassas, a former city council member and police officer. “Now we have three innocent victims in my city — about a mile from my house there’s a murderous rampage. I am furious. … Yet it happens over and over and over again, and then we have to hear all of these apologetic excuses as to why we shouldn’t be addressing criminal illegal aliens on the state or local level. It’s just disgusting.”

A similar uproar ensued in August when an allegedly drunken driver struck a car carrying three nuns, killing Sister Denise Mosier, 66. The man charged in that crash, 23-year-old Carlos Martinelly Montano, had been turned over to immigration authorities but was released pending a deportation hearing.

Nancy Lyall of the immigrant advocacy group Mexicans Without Borders said it was misleading to link an isolated criminal case with the issue of illegal immigration. In Prince William County, she said, “the undocumented population is a very, very low percentage of those who are accused of violent crimes.”

Illegal alien in nun’s traffic death had offenses handled inconsistently

By Bill McKelway
Published: March 04, 2011
Updated: March 04, 2011 – 6:21 PM

A long-awaited report on the deportation status of a Prince William illegal alien whose alcohol-related head-on collision killed a Richmond-based nun shows repeated instances of a failure to report his crimes to Homeland Security as well as a shift in emphasis by the Obama administration in dealing with illegal aliens.

Judicial Watch, a public disclosure group, said today that it has a received a copy of the report by the Department of Homeland Security that was kept secret after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had declared her office would thoroughly investigate the Prince William case and make it public.

The 35-page report deals with the criminal history and legal status of Carlos Martinelly-Montano, 23, whose Aug. 1 collision in Prince William seriously injured two Benedictine nuns and killed a third, Sister Denise Mosier, 66, all of Richmond.

Martinelly-Montano is scheduled to go to trial March 28 on six indictments, including felony murder, maiming resulting from driving under the influence and involuntary manslaughter.

Reading this report makes me very angry!
The president of Mexico lectures us about our efforts to curb illegal immigration and the Democrats give him a standing ovation. Obama stands united with him.
We strip search children at airports, yet Obama declares any states attempts to question the immigration status of anyone a violation of their “rights”.
This country is being destroyed from within.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.”

Please go top my website and consider what I have said.
We need to close the northern and southern border and we need to deny access to those from the middle east except those from Israel.
I also think that Americans that go to the middle east for an extended time, say more than 4 weeks should be denied return to the US.
There would be an exception for soldiers and those on legitimate business.

Why do we as AMERICAN, tolerate expecting ourselfs to OBEY all the laws the TRASH in DC came think up, and then allow people here ILLEGALLY to break our laws with absolutely NO consequences.

We figure about 100,000 illegal aliens left Arizona. The Maricopa County hopsital maternity ward, once filled to the brim with illegal aliens birthing their anchor babies for free, is not almost empty. They closed down much of the 120 bed ward. Home invasions have slowed down a little. Factory jobs are starting to open up for Americans. Cities and towns all around Arizona have had to close schools because of the drop in illegal alien enrollment. It goes on and on!!!!

Rift in Arizona as Latino Class Is Found Illegal

By MARC LACEY
Published: January 7, 2011

TUCSON — The class began with a Mayan-inspired chant and a vigorous round of coordinated hand clapping. The classroom walls featured protest signs, including one that said “United Together in La Lucha!” — the struggle. Although open to any student at Tucson High Magnet School, nearly all of those attending Curtis Acosta’s Latino literature class on a recent morning were Mexican-American

For all of that and more, Mr. Acosta’s class and others in the Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican-American program have been declared illegal by the State of Arizona — even while similar programs for black, Asian and American Indian students have been left untouched.

“It’s propagandizing and brainwashing that’s going on there,” Tom Horne, Arizona’s newly elected attorney general, said this week as he officially declared the program in violation of a state law that went into effect on Jan. 1.

Although Shakespeare’s “Tempest” was supposed to be the topic at hand, Mr. Acosta spent most of a recent class discussing the political storm in which he, his students and the entire district have become enmeshed. Mr. Horne’s name came up more than once, and not in a flattering light.

It was Mr. Horne, as the state’s superintendent of public instruction, who wrote a law aimed at challenging Tucson’s ethnic-studies program. The Legislature passed the measure last spring, and Gov. Jan Brewer signed it into law in May amid the fierce protests raging over the state’s immigration crackdown.

For the state, the issue is not so much “The Tempest” as some of the other texts used in the classes, among them, “The Pedagogy of the Oppressed” and “Occupied America,” which Mr. Horne said inappropriately teach Latino youths that they are being mistreated.

Teaching methods in the classes are sometimes unconventional, with instructors scrutinizing hip-hop lyrics and sprinkling their lessons with Spanish words.

The state, which includes some Mexican-American studies in its official curriculum, sees the classes as less about educating students than creating future activists.

In Mr. Acosta’s literature class, students were clearly concerned. They asked if their graduation was at risk. They asked if they were considered terrorists because Mr. Horne described them as wanting to topple the government. They asked how they could protest the decision.

Then, one young woman asked Mr. Acosta how he was holding up.

“They wrote a state law to snuff this program out, just us little Chicanitos,” he said, wiping away tears. “The idea of losing this is emotional.”

At a recent news conference, Mr. Horne took pains to describe his attack on Tucson’s Mexican-American studies program as one rooted in good faith. He said he had been studying Spanish for several years and had learned enough to read Mexican history books in Spanish and to give interviews on Univision and Telemundo, two Spanish-language broadcasters.

Asked whether he felt he was being likened to Bull Connor, the Alabama police commissioner who became a symbol of bigotry in the 1960s, Mr. Horne described how he had participated in the March on Washington in 1963 as a young high school graduate. He said of his critics: “They are the ‘Bull Connors.’ They are the ones resegregating.”

Mr. Horne’s battle with Tucson over ethnic studies dates to 2007, when Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers, told high school students there in a speech that Republicans hated Latinos. Mr. Horne, a Republican, sent a top aide, Margaret Garcia Dugan, to the school to present a different perspective. He was infuriated when some students turned their backs and raised their fists in the air.

The Arizona law warns school districts that they stand to lose 10 percent of their state education funds if their ethnic-studies programs are found not to comply with new state standards. Programs that promote the overthrow of the United States government are explicitly banned, and that includes the suggestion that portions of the Southwest that were once part of Mexico should be returned to that country.

Also prohibited is any promotion of resentment toward a race. Programs that are primarily for one race or that advocate ethnic solidarity instead of individuality are also outlawed.

On Monday, his final day as the state’s top education official, Mr. Horne declared that Tucson’s Mexican-American program violated all four provisions. The law gives the district 60 days to comply, although Mr. Horne offered only one remedy: the dissolution of the program.

He said the district’s other ethnic-studies programs, unlike the Mexican-American program, had not received complaints and could continue.

John Huppenthal, a former state senator who took over as Arizona’s schools chief, said he supported Mr. Horne’s 11th-hour ruling. Mr. Huppenthal sat in on one of the Tucson classes taught by Mr. Acosta, and said that Benjamin Franklin was vilified as a racist and a photo of Che Guevara was hanging on the wall. Besides that, he said, Tucson’s test scores are among the lowest in the state, indicating that the district needs to focus on the fundamentals.

Officials here say those enrolled in the program do better on state tests than those of the same ethnicity who are not enrolled.

The battle means that Tucson, a struggling urban district, stands to lose nearly $15 million in an already difficult budget environment. So far, the school board has stood by the program, declaring that it considers it to be in compliance with the law.

If financing were pulled, the district would have an opportunity to appeal, and school officials were already talking about the possibility of the matter ending up in court. Meanwhile, 11 teachers, including Mr. Acosta, have filed suit in federal court challenging the constitutionality of the state restrictions.

A discrimination suit against Tucson’s schools in the 1970s prompted a settlement in which an African-American studies program was created. Later, other ethnic-studies programs were added.

To buttress his critique of the Tucson program, Mr. Horne read from texts used in various classes, which in one instance referred to white people as “gringos” and described privilege as being related to the color of a person’s skin, hair and eyes. He also cited the testimony of five teachers who described the program as giving a skewed view of history and promoting racial discord.

“On the first day of school, they are no different than students in any other classes,” said John Ward, who briefly taught a Latino history class in Tucson. “But once they get told day after day that they are being victimized, they become angry and resentful.”

Augustine F. Romero, director of student equity in the Tucson schools, said the program was intended to make students proud of who they are and not hostile toward others. “All of our forefathers have contributed to this country, not just one set of forefathers,” he said. “We respect and admire and appreciate the traditional forefathers, but there are others.”

The debate over the program’s future, Mr. Romero said, proves more than ever the need for the program. “There’s a fierce anti-Latino sentiment in this state,” he said. “These courses are about justice and equity, and what is happening is that the Legislature is trying to narrow the reality of those things.

“Who are the true Americans here — those embracing our inalienable rights or those trying to diminish them?”

Programs that promote the overthrow of the United States government are explicitly banned, and that includes the suggestion that portions of the Southwest that were once part of Mexico should be returned to that country.
I believe it is part of their studies. They get away from Mexico saying how bad it is there and once they get here, all they can think about is Mexico.You have to admit a lot illegals from Mexico take this class and they are not interested in the U.S. history section -a-tall. Take a look at what SB 1070 has done.

My wife is from Mexico and hates this kind of nativist crap.
She became a citizen of the USA of her own volition, and even before she took her Citizenship exam knew more than most Americans about our history and system of government.
She finds the invasion of illegal aliens embarrassing and wants the illegals all rounded up and deported. She yells louder than I when the lawbreakers have the audacity to call press conferences to announce their criminality.She also suggests the USA adopt the Mexican Immigration laws, word for word. Among other provisions,
Mexican Constitution 4-5, 9: Article 33: “Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political affairs of the country.”If Nicaraguans and Columbians (for example) were to demonstrate and DEMAND self-inculcated “rights” in Mexico, they would be immediately arrested (vigorously!) and deported the very next day!

Earlier this evening was a post about an old gentleman who died defending his land from drug invaders in Mexico. I thought as I read how noble and how sad that the young people in Mexico are abandoning their own country for the “freebies” north of their border. How a young Mexican of honor and resolve would prefer to defend their land and country from lawlessness and corruption instead of taking money from gringos they despise and whining about their “rights” in a country not their own for land that was sold. In reading this story I am also reminded that in every part of the world there are noble people of honor and deserving of respect.

Don Alejo Garza Tamez: True Grit
The New American ^ | Tuesday, 30 November 2010 | Bob Adelmann
Posted on Friday, January 07, 2011 7:00:33 PM by Stonewall Jackson
Many still remember the movie True Grit, with John Wayne playing Rooster Cogburn, the irascible drunk who reluctantly agrees to help Mattie track down Tom Chaney who murdered Mattie’s father. The phrase “true grit” defines one who knows right from wrong and then does something about it.
When a Mexican drug cartel delivered an ultimatum to Don Alejo to give up his ranch or suffer the consequences, it was expected that within 24 hours the place would be vacant, and it would be just another asset captured by the cartel. But they didn’t know they were dealing with someone with true grit.

On Saturday, November 13, a group of toughs arrived at Don Alejo’s ranch about 10 miles outside of Ciudad Victoria, the capital city of the Mexican state of Tamaulipas. Victoria, as it is now called, is about 100 miles due south of Laredo, Texas, and about 80 miles southwest of Brownsville. The ranch sits on a pretty lake where Don Alejo had lived most of his life. He was informed that he had 24 hours to vacate the premises. He responded simply that he would be waiting for them.
The first thing Don Alejo did was to let his ranch hands leave and take the next day off. Next, he secured his home, spending most of the evening preparing for the coming assault. He placed weapons and ammunition at every door and window, thought through how he would defend the place, and went to bed.

At 4 a.m. Sunday morning, several motor vehicles pulled up in front of Don Alejo’s home, with the thugs announcing their arrival by firing rounds from their weapons into the air. What happened next caught them totally by surprise. The criminals had taken over other properties without resistance, often with the occupants running from the house, screaming for mercy.
Instead, Don Alejo began picking off one after another of the attackers. When they discovered that their return fire was proving ineffective, the thugs began throwing grenades into the house. The firefight, it is estimated, lasted no more than about 5 minutes. In the end, 4 attackers lay dead, two more mortally wounded, and Don Alejo himself lying dead in a pool of blood.

As the Mexican Marines later pieced together the story, Don Alejo, age 77, decided simply that he wasn’t going to be run off his property by outlaws. He had made many hard decisions in his life, taking over his father’s sawmill when he was a young man, travelling regularly to see his suppliers, opening several timber supply stores in the area, and dealing with difficulties that only a small business owner can appreciate. His final decision, however, was an easy one. He had all that was needed: he owned the property, he knew he would defend it even with his life if necessary, and he had the means.

As a hunter Don Alejo was intimately familiar with firearms, both long guns and small arms. He had collected guns from his childhood, and had developed a keen eye and a steady finger. He hunted deer, geese, and pigeons regularly with his friends. He co-founded the Dr. Maria Manuel Silva Hunting, Shooting and Fishing Club in Allende, Nuevo Leon.

When the Marines arrived at the scene shortly after the firefight, the smell of gun powder was still in the air. Weapons, spent brass, and empty magazines littered the house. Walls were peppered with bullet holes, and grenades had blown gaping holes in the front of the building. As Borderlandbeat.com reported,

In the last hunt of his life, Don Alejo surprised the group of assassins who wanted to impose the same law on his ranch that they had [elsewhere] in the State: the law of the jungle.

The marines who were present will never forget the scene: a 77-year old man, who before death, took out four gunmen, fighting them as the best of soldiers: with dignity, courage, and honor.

In a microcosm, Don Alejo was fighting the same fight that men of honor throughout the ages and in different lands have fought: freedom from aggression, defense against tyranny, light versus darkness.
In America, the freedom fight, at least on the surface, seems heavily to favor the armed citizen. At last count, more than 90 million Americans are armed with several hundred million weapons. They have lived in a land of freedom unknown in history, and are enjoying the fruits gained by fighters against totalitarianism since the founding of the Republic. But there are some who call the American people “sheeple,” too soft and ignorant of their own freedom and history even to know what it cost others. There are some who doubt that many will stand, in that final moment, if necessary, to defend their own lives, liberties, and property. Others look at the legacy of freedom left behind and wonder how Don Alejo came to decide that it was “this far and no farther.”

In this time of increasing uncertainty, chaos, and confusion, how many Don Alejos are there, really? There just might be a time when that question will be answered. As James Russell Lowell wrote:

Once to every man and nation, comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, some great decision, offering each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever, ’twixt that darkness and that light.

Well, if such “similar programs” are really similar, then maybe they should be banned for brainwashing, too.
It’s one thing to study, let’s say, American Indian history and customs. It’s another to make it into a typical liberal brainwashing course.

Equal rights (which everyone really has if they would just live it, instead of complaining) is for legal immigrants.

Hm, not ENTIRELY true. Consider that the in the armed services the oath one gives, whether Enlisted or Officer, is to the CONSTITUTION before anything else AND, in the case of the Enlisted, the promise to obey orders is qualified with “lawful.” {If the Constitution is the highest law of the land then, obviously, any order contrary it MUST be illegal.}
Furthermore, the Declaration of Independence (which was ratified by Congress) specifically states that when a government becomes destructive to the rights and liberties of the people that it is both their duty and their right to throw off that government.

That is illegal, just like the notion that illegal immigrants have legal rights in this country.

Ramos and Compeon redux:
Mexico says US border agent killed Mexican teenager
Snips: NOGALES, Mexico, Jan 5 – A U.S. Border Patrol agent was involved in a shooting on the Arizona border with Mexico on Wednesday that resulted in the death of a teenage boy trying to cross illegally into the United States, Mexican police said.
Ramses Barron, 17, was found dead outside a hospital in Nogales, Sonora, in the early hours of Wednesday with a wound from a bullet fired by the Border Patrol agent, Sonora state police said citing
Frustrated by tighter security on the U.S.-Mexico border, illegal immigrants and drug traffickers regularly pelt U.S. agents with rocks, take shots and even throw gasoline bombs.
Border Patrol agents are wary of using their weapons as shootings of illegal immigrants have raised tensions between the United States and Mexico in the past.
In June, the fatal shooting of a Mexican teenager by a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, Texas, provoked anger in Mexico and the Mexican government sent a formal complaint to Washington, demanding answers.

I do believe that even illegal immigrants could, and should, have legal rights in America. If, for example, some employer decides to not-pay his illegal-immigrant employees they SHOULD be able to present their case in court and have a fair and just hearing. Now, note that this hypothetical wronging done them does NOT entitle them to any sort of legal residency or citizenship.
In fact, it is an injustice that so many illegal immigrants are NOT severely punished and instead granted the rights lawfully acquired by their legal counterparts.

It is important to put a boot on the neck of anyone who suggests that U.S. land should be returned to Mexico. People think it would never happen here, that the U.S. government would never force its citizens to leave their homes and give up their lands. Israel was “forced” to cede land to the Palestinians in the name of peace. Under the right circumstances and with enough political pressure from the right countries, the pinheads in D.C. could be forced to cede parts of Southern CA, AZ, NM, and TX to Mexico.

I disagree…..if said “hypothetical” scenario occurs, deport the illegal alien and prosecute the legal citizen for his crime. If it is determined that the illegal alien is required for said prosecution, then retain him for a witness (if he chooses to) until the trial is over and then deport him.

Now, I NEVER said that the illegal shouldn’t be deported… in fact if you read what I posted it strongly implies the opposite; nor did I ever say that the Citizen shouldn’t be punished for his crime, deportation is, IMO, not really enough given hoe many “repeat offenders” we have.

You got it! The contradictions are quite evident. Where is US government support for Border Patrol agents who are attacked on a daily basis by “escapees” from Mexico. If Mexican authorities had their act together, the country would be a paradise and Americans would be flocking there to spend their hard-earned dollars and Mexicans wouldn’t dream of leaving their homeland. Instead Mexico expects the USA to do a partial bailout called “the dream act” and leave the borders wide open so their drug cartels can invade us and cause us the same problems as they are having. Napolitano should be spending time with our border state sheriffs (on actual border patrol details). She seems to not have a clue how dangerous those jobs are!How much more have we heard about the guy who was killed and his body disappeared while boating in Mexico (whose wife survived the attack)? Did Mexico investigate that?

“Kill the Gringo”; Arizona Reconquista Ethnic Studies = Racist Violence 101
[Nicholas Stix] @ 1:34 pm

The back story to HB 2281, the law passed by Arizona state legislators banning Reconquista “ethnic studies”, is that the inquiry into “ethnic studies” was provoked by pervasive racist violence that Hispanic kids were committing against white and black kids, and that parents discovered that the “expert,” “Raza [The Race] Studies” educators were teaching Hispanic students to kill whites, except that the educators used a term that is the equivalent to “nigger” or “honkey” to describe whites: “gringo.” As in, “Kill the gringo.”

“[Pedagogy of the Oppressed, by communist Paulo Freire] is required reading in ‘Raza Studies’ or Mexican-American courses in the high schools in Tucson, Arizona, where students have been protesting Arizona’s new immigration law. Other required books are Occupied America by Rodolfo Acuña, a professor emeritus of Chicano studies at California State University in Northridge (CSUN), and Prison Notebooks by Antonio Gramsci, the Italian Communist.

Occupied America, the fifth edition, includes an image of Fidel Castro on the front cover, and Castro and Che Guevara on the back cover. It refers to white people as “gringos” and actually includes a quotation on page 323 from Jose Angel Gutierrez of the Mexican American Youth Organization (MAYO), who was angry over the cancellation of a government program. He declared:

“We are fed up. We are going to move to do away with the injustice to the Chicano and if the ‘gringo’ doesn’t get out of our way, we will stampede over him.”

The book goes on:

“Gutierrez attacked the gringo establishment angrily at a press conference and called upon Chicanos to ‘Kill the gringo,’ which meant to end white control over Mexicans.”

Reviewing this material for the National Association of Scholars, Ashley Thorne commented that, “Actually, ‘kill the gringo’ meant ‘kill the gringo.’ But admitting that makes Mexicans look radical, infuriated, revolutionary, Acuña sidestepped that image and substituted it with one of browbeaten Latinos rising to overthrow injustice.”

The Arizona citizens upset about this kind of material said that they initiated an investigation into the problem back in 2007 and found it difficult to get access to the books. One activist said the concern began when parents came to be aware of violence in the schools directed against white and black children. “This investigation was undertaken to find the roots of this hate,” she told me. Another person, in turn, “told me the books in their Mexican-American classes are kept under ‘lock and key’ and the kids can’t even take them home. She said she asked to see them but they were very secretive about them and she was prohibited.”

However, the citizen activists persisted, demanding access to the books under a state open records law. The courses, after all, are taxpayer-funded. Eventually, a list of books was produced, and a controversy ensued.”

“Arizona Ethnic Studies Exposed,” by Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media, May 24, 2010.

Ashley Thorne writes of La Raza [The Race] studies.

“This revolutionary fervor is even more pronounced in Occupied America, which tells the story of the Southwestern United States from the perspective of Mexican Americans and has been called ‘the Chicano bible.’ The book is sympathetic to Mexico in a reference to the battle at the Alamo….

In another place, Acuña wrote:

Gutiérrez attacked the gringo establishment angrily at a press conference and called upon Chicanos to ‘kill the gringo,’ which meant to end white control over Mexicans.

Actually, “kill the gringo” means “kill the gringo.” Jose Angel Gutiérrez, who is referenced here, is the co-founder of the Raza Unida Party, a U.S. political third party. At a 1995 conference Gutiérrez declared, “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.” Today Gutiérrez is a professor of political science at the University of Texas at Arlington.

The Raza studies program housed its revolutionary aims in terms of “transformation” and social justice.” Among its goals were to “Advocate for and provide curriculum that is centered within the pursuit of social justice,” “Work towards the invoking of a critical consciousness within each and every student,” and “Promote and advocate for social and educational transformation.”

While such aims and books do not explicitly call for the overthrow of the U.S. government, they do seek to stir up in students a racial consciousness that perceives white Americans as the enemy and oppressor. Freire invites minority students to identify themselves as victims and to fight back [read: violently assault whites]. Acuña invokes an America where ‘gringos’ are power-thirsty imperialists whom Chicanos must overthrow.”

“Arizona Ends Divisive Chicano Studies in Schools” by Ashley Thorne, The National Association of Scholars, May 13, 2010.

“Transformation”=“Kill the gringo.”

“Social justice”=“Kill the gringo.”
Any questions?

The MSM routinely refuse to report on the pervasive racist violence in “diverse” schools. And when they do, they refuse to report on the role of “diverse,” diversity-promoting “educators,” for whom promoting diversity is inseparable from promoting anti-white violence.

Minorities are majority population in Montgomery County

By Carol Morello and Dan Keating
Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, February 10, 2011; 12:00 AM

Minorities have become a majority over the past decade in affluent Montgomery County as the number of whites has plummeted, according to census figures released Wednesday.

In Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, whites were largely replaced by Hispanics, a Washington Post analysis of the detailed census statistics shows. Hispanics outnumber blacks in Montgomery and just edge past whites in Prince George’s County.

Barely 49 percent of Montgomery’s 972,000 residents are non-Hispanic whites, down from almost 60 percent in 2000 and 72 percent a decade before that. Hispanics rose by two-thirds and make up about 17 percent of the county’s population.

The census figures surprised some residents but reinforced what’s readily evident.

“Wow. That’s incredible,” said Montgomery County Council member Nancy Navarro (D-Eastern County), who immigrated to the United States from Venezuela when she was in the fifth grade. “This changes the image of Montgomery County as just a wealthy, mostly Caucasian county.

“A lot of us know intuitively what happened, but it’s different when you have it in real numbers,” she added. “We have to recognize what the Montgomery County of today looks like.”

The major demographic shifts mirror changes underway throughout much of the region and state.
As recently as 1990, seven out of 10 Maryland residents were white. Now, they are barely a majority, at 55 percent of the population. For the first time, a majority of the state’s children younger than 18 are minorities, an important harbinger of growth as those children come of age.

From the Washington Post:

Its white folks fault. This is what happens when White + Black = Black. Its ok for them to father children by other races, so long as the result is never a white offspring. The solution is simple, white men need to start using what god gave them on white women more often, instead of asking leaving it to the rest of us.
If you think this is the only place this is happening you are fooling your selves. By the next census, this will be the norm across the country. Stop crying, you took the country by force, it time to give it up.

I could go on. The County is terrified of being perceived as being judgmental so it turns a blind eye. Montgomery County used to be considered a nicer suburb of the D.C. area. But it is trending like a jetliner that has run out of fuel.

And let’s face it, the explosive growth of the demographics described in this article is hugely due to the massive influx if illegal immigration we’ve seen in recent years. But hey, all they need to do is pop out some wee-ones while their here and they’ve managed to circumvent our immigration laws (another phenomenon mentioned in the piece, but not in this context).

And liberal-minded folks, not yet experiencing this first-hand dismissively wave off such observations to intolerance. Then, when it begins happening around them, they slowly put 2 and 2 together. But it’s of course too late then.

The clean, quiet streets of Montgomery County are dying fast. Sad.

Coming soon to a Montgomery County neighborhood near you.

We look at the history from the day of the American Independence to today’s economic disarray era. We already passed the golden age of a homogeneous society of American civilization that was in late 1960s and early 1970s – the first men on the Moon and the robust economy with its self-sufficiency, which nearly everything was made here in USA.

We are already facing toward a bleak and dark future for our American civilization. When the economic collapse in a near future (sooner than you think), it will certainly stir-up and intimidate multi-ethnic American people to embroil into a racial tension and eventually, a racial civil war. This tragedy result will end up huge divisions of tribalism across the country – Balkanization of the USA.
Heterogeneous society never achieve successfully for every civilization through the human history because of the mentality of cultural and racial differences, and intense competitions among multi-ethnic populations that never meld together effectively. Egyptian Empire, Roman Empire, Spanish Empire, British Empire, Ottoman Empire and Soviet Union collapsed because of huge heterogeneous society and moribund economy that led them to fall. American civilization will be the next fall.
Therefore, diversity never works!

Hispanics guide huge growth in Texas

RICK JERVIS USA RODAY

PASADENA, Texas — Meet the face of the new Texas: Jose Villagran, 39, first-generation Mexican American, four kids, suburbanite.

Along with thousands of others like him, Villagran was born in Houston to Mexican parents and still works in the city, but he moved his family to this safer, cheaper suburb 14 miles south of Houston.

Census data released Thursday show a robust statewide population spurt the past decade — adding more than 4.2 million residents, or 20.6% — attributed primarily to Hispanics such as Villagran, minorities born in urban centers but quickly spreading to suburbs and rural areas across the state.

TEXAS: County, city population and change
CENSUS NUMBERS: Interactive map shows your state, county, locality

“There are more Mexicans here than ever before,” Villagran, a buyer for a scrap metal company, says of Pasadena. “We’ve kind of taken over.”

And then some. Overall, Texas’ population grew to more than 25 million, awarding the nation’s second most populous state four more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. Hispanics accounted for 65% of the state’s growth since 2000, while non-Hispanic whites experienced the smallest increase of any group, just 4.2%. The black population grew by 22%.

“We’re seeing the development of two populations groups in Texas: aging Anglos and young minorities,” says Steve Murdock, a former Census Bureau director and now a Rice University sociology professor. “We’re seeing Hispanic growth not just deepen but become pervasive throughout the state.”

A healthy state economy during the recent recession and Mexican nationals fleeing drug cartel violence in Mexico also contributed to Texas’ population boom, he says. Border towns saw sharp increases: Brownsville’s population rose 25% and Laredo’s by 33%.

But natural Latino population increases — more Latinos born in the state than dying — were the main engine, he says. For the first time in recent history, Texas is less than half non-Hispanic white, dipping to 45%, the data shows. Hispanics make up about 38% of the total population.

The state’s burgeoning Hispanic population mirrors what’s happening across the USA, Murdock says. “The Texas of today is the U.S. of tomorrow,” he says.

Another telling statistic: Texas added nearly 1 million children under 18 — 95% of them Hispanic, says William Frey, a demographer for the Brookings Institution. “That’s the future of the state,” he says. “It’s a diverse one.”

The increased Hispanic numbers are expected to spark heated debate in the months ahead over how to redraw districts to accommodate the four new congressional seats and include more minority voters, says Ross Ramsey, managing editor of the Texas Tribune, an online political site. “That’s the beginning of a political dogfight,” he says.

Texas’ population surge came in four main areas: Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston-Galveston, San Antonio-Austin and the Rio Grande Valley, all areas with high numbers of Latinos. Those four areas account for 84% of the statewide gain.

Houston remains Texas’ largest city with 2.1 million residents. San Antonio moved up during the decade to the second slot with 1.3 million, trailed by Dallas with 1.2 million, the data show.

In the Houston area, Latinos no longer are confined to the East End neighborhood, their historical enclave, says Deacon Joe Rubio, an administrator for Catholic Charities Houston. Historically white suburbs such as Katy, Dickinson and Pasadena are swelling with Latinos, he says.

In Harris County, where Houston is located, the Latino population grew nearly 50% to 1.7 million and Asian Texans grew by 44% to 250,000, while the number of whites dropped from 1.4 million to 1.35 million — a 6% decline.

“There is a significant spread from traditional barrios or neighborhoods to suburban areas and other areas where you wouldn’t find them before,” Rubio says.

Once home to the Ku Klux Klan and the setting for the 1980 hit movie Urban Cowboy, Pasadena today is dotted with carnicerias (meat markets), washaterias (laundromats) and taquerias. The former Elks Lodge is now the El Palacio Real, hosting quinceañeras and other traditional Hispanic galas.

Resident Raul Silva, 41, has seen the city transform since he moved his wife and two children here from Houston 12 years ago. He says he hopes the new Census figures give Hispanic Texans more political muscle and the ability to self-improve.

“We need better representation,” says Silva, stopping Thursday for a breakfast taco at Taqueria de Jalisco with his wife, Diana Selestino, 38. “I’d like to see it happen soon.”

Texas demographer: ‘It’s basically over for Anglos’

Looking at population projections for Texas, demographer Steve Murdock concludes: “It’s basically over for Anglos.”

Two of every three Texas children are now non-Anglo and the trend line will become even more pronounced in the future, said Murdock, former U.S. Census Bureau director and now director of the Hobby Center for the Study of Texas at Rice University.

Today’s Texas population can be divided into two groups, he said. One is an old and aging Anglo and the other is young and minority. Between 2000 and 2040, the state’s public school enrollment will see a 15 percent decline in Anglo children while Hispanic children will make up a 213 percent increase, he said.

The state’s largest county – Harris – will shed Anglos throughout the coming decades. By 2040, Harris County will have about 516, 000 fewer Anglos than lived in the Houston area in 2000, while the number of Hispanics will increase by 2.5 million during the same period, Murdock said. The projection assumes a net migration rate equal to one-half of 1990-2000.

Most of the state’s population growth is natural, Murdock told the House Mexican American Legislative Caucus today. About 22 percent of the growth comes from people moving to Texas from other states.

About 6 percent of the state’s population is not documented, he said.

By 2040, only 20 percent of the state’s public school enrollment will be Anglo, he said. Last year, non-Hispanic white children made up 33.3 percent of the state’s 4.8 million public school enrollment.

Of the state’s 254 counties, 79 recorded declining population during the past 20 years. All are rural. An additional 30 Texas counties, he said, would have also lost population had they not experienced Hispanic growth.

The state’s future looks bleak assuming the current trend line does not change because education and income levels for Hispanics lag considerably behind Anglos, he said.

Unless the trend line changes, 30 percent of the state’s labor force will not have even a high school diploma by 2040, he said. And the average household income will be about $6,500 lower than it was in 2000. That figure is not inflation adjusted so it will be worse than what it sounds.

“It’s a terrible situation that you are in. I am worried,” Murdock said.

Oregon growth rate slows;
its Hispanic population booms

Updated 2/23/2011 10:58 PM ET

By Christopher Hagan (Salem, Ore.) Statesman Journal

Oregon’s Hispanic population grew five times as fast as the state’s total population in the past decade, 2010 Census data released Wednesday show.

The overall Hispanic population grew 64% since 2000, adding 174,748 for a total of 450,062.

“It is significant growth,” said Frank Garcia, director of the Governor’s Affirmative Action Office. “A mentor told me one time that the Hispanic community was considered to be a nuance and then an exotic, and now it’s an in-your-face.”

OREGON: Data from your county, city CENSUS NUMBERS: map shows your state, county, locality

Hispanics now make up 12% of Oregon’s population, up from 8% in 2000. Garcia expected the number to be higher based on early projections, but was pleased with the growth in the community.

“Obviously Oregon is becoming more and more diverse everyday,” he said.

Oregon’s Hispanic growth is in line with increases elsewhere.

Census numbers where you live

“This is really a national trend,” said Charles Rynerson, a research faculty member of the Population Research Center at Portland State University. “Oregon ranks relatively high as a destination for people from Mexico … but the Latino population is really growing everywhere.”

Oregon’s total population grew 12% to 3,831,074 — the state’s second-lowest growth rate since the 1910 Census. Oregon’s non-Hispanic white population grew by 5%, but the percentage of the state’s population that group represents declined from 84% in 2000 to 79%.

Portland’s population grew 10.3% to 583,776. Eugene continued to barely outpace Salem as the state’s second-largest city. “Salem’s population is a little more diverse than Eugene’s, so they’ve had more growth in the Latino population, and Salem’s public sector employment hasn’t been hurt as bad,” Rynerson said.

Eight of Oregon’s 36 counties lost population, but only eight counties grew at or above the state’s 12% pace.

Minorities push Washington’s growth

Updated 2/23/2011 11:00 PM ET

By Haya El Nasser, USA TODAY

The surge in the Hispanic population is playing out in the Pacific Northwest much as it is in other parts of the USA: Their numbers in Washington jumped 71% to almost 756,000 since 2000, according to 2010 Census data released Wednesday.

The Asian population also soared, up 49% to almost 476,000. The non-Hispanic white population dropped from 79% to 73%, state demographer Yi Zhao says. It was more than 86% white 20 years ago. Almost three in 10 residents and almost four in 10 children are minorities.

Growth in King County — the state’s most populous and home to Seattle, the largest city — slowed to 11.2%, compared with almost 30% in the 1990s. The county has 1.9 million people.

Seattle gained 8% to 608,660, compared with 9% the previous decade. The region was hit hard, first by the dot-com bust, then the nationwide recession.

Especially since mandating, and enforcing, E-Verify, along with

enforcing our existing laws against illegals being in our country,

would soon, with rare exception, eliminate the invasion.

NOW COMES THE BAD NEWS:

far less than half of illegals are apprehended at the border.

Before the recent addition (over the last two years) of:

10,000 Border Patrol agents,

313.9 miles of Pedestrian Fence,

34 miles of the legislated double-layered fence,

and 298.5 miles of Vehicle Barriers,

it was estimated, by the border patrol agents,

that less than 1, out of 7, illegals, were apprehended at the border.

Some agents even said less than 1, out of 10, were apprehended.

Now, they say they catch about 1, out of 3

The reported 11.2 million illegals in our United States

is a lie being told, over, and over, again, to all Americans

30 million illegals, in our United States, is much more likely

6 million illegals are Visa overstays

8 million illegals, are working at known employers

twice that many are working under the table for cash.

IT’S ONE HELL OF A WAY TO RUN A GREAT COUNTRY

30 million illegals are undermining our economy

One Response to La reConquista giving Our Country back to the Indians

  1. Dam BA says:

    I tried living in a Mexican National neighborhood (95% illegal), and I swore there would be no ‘reconquista’ here, not under my watch, but the Mexicans were just relentless with all the complaints you hear so much about them. Finally, I had to move; I just could not get a good night’s sleep on a weekend from all the drunken parties, and I could not get any cooperation from the Riverside County Sheriffs.
