The news story of Wednesday’s crazy-violent bank robbery in Stockton has gotten a lot of play here in the Bay Area. Hundreds of shots were fired in a chase and shoot-out with 20 cop cars pursuing the robbers at a high speed through three communities. Two of the three criminals were killed, and one hostage, [...]
US Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi (shown below) has been wrongly jailed in Mexico since March 31 for having legal firearms in his vehicle after making a wrong turn into the dirtbag country.
The case is a perfect example of how Mexico plays America for a fool repeatedly, yet Washington continues to submit to the Mexes’ two-bit [...]
A big story in San Antonio is that a US-born Mexican cartel hit-kid has been deported from a Mexico prison to live in that city. Arrested when he was 14, little Edgar Jimenez Lugo is now 17 and has served his paltry three-year sentence in permissive Mexico for murdering at least four.
What could possibly go [...]
LA’s most diverse sport is already pretty espanol, but now the owner of the team is accused of harassing non-Mexicans into quitting their jobs, and not just the players in the public eye, but office staff.
The case has taken the form of a lawsuit by the aggrieved American employee, since the Mexican billionaire owner of [...]
Word is getting around that Mexico is becoming more middle class (with 39 percent of Mexicans now so estimated), despite the grifter nation’s attempts to keep that information secret from the United States. Mexican elites would prefer that clueless Washington think of the crackhouse next door as poor relations, needing a continuing handout of free [...]
There are a lot of polls around these days that refer to illegal immigration and mass amnesty, but the Rasmussen survey suggests that the less than a third of Americans believe Mexico is a friend. An earlier poll showed Americans don’t think Mexico wants the immigration problem fixed.
Mexico is by far the biggest sender of [...]
For some reason, the pollsters over at Pew Hispanic thought Mexican public opinion regarding America would be worth measuring. Perhaps it was published to reflect Obama’s Thursday taco junket to visit the new Mexican president on his home turf (n.b. Key issues on Obama’s Mexico trip: Trade, immigration and drug war).
Anyway, wouldn’t it be better [...]
December’s end brings lists of the year’s best, worst, most memorable and other supposedly reflective products of the dinosaur media. Such inventories are easy to concoct, and can be assembled weeks in advance, so the journalist can jet off for a deluxe ski vacation while his name appears in print. Hey, a refrigerator full of [...]
If demanding DREAMer kids knew how deluxe and inexpensive Mexico’s higher education system is, many might chose a full-tilt raza education with 24/7 Spanish and Mexican culture. (See my 2009 blog, Mexico’s National University Wins Prestigious Award.) For example, at the National Polytechnic Institute, 60 percent of students pay only $12 per semester.
Now we learn [...]
Talk about putting out the unwelcome mat — Mexico is being downright snotty to its returning citizens and their US-born jackpot kiddies by not providing basic paperwork to get them plugged into school and healthcare.
Wait, weren’t the remittance checks from Mexo-expats an important part of the country’s economy, amounting to tens of billions of dollars [...]
One assumes that news articles of happy Mexicans remaining in Mexico to pursue improved circumstances in pesos rather than dollars are at least partially aimed at promoting Obama’s image of an effective border enforcer.
But there is another message tucked into Alfredo Corchado’s story (linked below) focused on the booming Mayan Riviera on the eastern Yucatan [...]
I’ve been saying for years that Mexico is a wealthy country, with its consistent #14 score in national GDP rankings and assortment of billionaires like numero uno Carlos Slim.
Now a new study is out from the Wilson Center (Mexico: A Middle Class Society, Poor No More, Developed Not Yet), arguing that Mexico is becoming a [...]
