The state of Oaxaca lies in southern Mexico, far from the US border, nevertheless a number of its residents depend on connections with the United States to survive, and some put on a brave face about their concerns regarding the new president, voiced in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times.
They make a familiar argument from yesteryear: “Who […]
The new sheriff isn’t even in town yet, and he is having a big impact already. Carlos Manuel Sada Solana, the Mexican ambassador to U.S. visited Phoenix recently to spread some propaganda around, like how Mexico is a friendly neighbor.
Funny, I have a different impression — along with millions of other Americans. Let’s review some […]
South of the border, there are big Mexican plans for defeating Donald Trump in his campaign to become President of the United States. In an “unprecedented effort” by Mexico, that government is meddling in our internal affairs by helping legal (!) resident Mexicans get US citizenship to vote against the Republican front-runner.
Our unfriendly neighbor claims […]
On Tuesday, the Assemblyman Donnelly rallied against the wrongful jailing of Marine Andrew Tahmooressi who took a wrong turn into Mexico with a few legal weapons in his vehicle. The arrest occurred on March 31 and Tahmooressi has been imprisoned in dirtbag Mexico ever since. Nevertheless, the United States continues to treat hostile Mexico as our […]
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 […]
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 […]
