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 [...]
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 [...]
Mexico’s idea of utopia would be an open border to the United States, with Mexican moochers having unlimited access to the wealth American citizens have generated.
But when Central Americans move to Mexico, one of the richest Latin nations, Mexicans suddenly remember the importance of national sovereignty. Mexico also doesn’t like other nation’s citizens passing through [...]
Mexico’s Presidente Calderon (pictured below in the South Park style) has complained that Mexican citizens given a free trip home (courtesy of the American taxpayer) are committing crimes upon their return.
You would think he believes Mexicans have a right to be in the United States and should be allowed to stay no matter what. Such [...]
Finally, we see some reporting in the American press about the reaction in Mexico to the shocking Gunrunner scandal, in which the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agency allowed thousands of firearms to be bought in US gun stores by straw buyers to be funneled to Mexican organized crime, supposedly so the guns could be “traced” [...]
Mexico’s Presidente Calderon never misses an opportunity to backstab the United States in the ongoing aggression by our non-friend to the south.
The latest effort is Mexico’s new law supposedly to protect OTMs as they pass through to the United States. There has been a lot of bad press over massacres like the Zeta gang mass [...]
When Mexico’s Presidente Calderon visits Washington, he not only hopes for a handout, his to-do list also includes complaining at length about America’s immigration laws. He thinks that the USA should stop border enforcement and admit Mexican workers to do any American job they can weasel, hypocritically overlooking that Mexico has very tough immigration enforcement [...]
Here in the first world, internet technology has had huge effects on popular culture, with nifty music aps and do-it-yourself Youtubes opening up whole new areas of entertainment and creativity.
Backwater Mexico has been affected by the same advances, albeit in its own unique way. Mexicans already have a well developed fondness for criminal activities, [...]
