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 […]
Immigrant-sending nations have a problem with Donald Trump and the possibility that pushing their unskilled persons and criminals into stupid-generous America may shrink. They are miffed that Obasma’s open borders could shut to a degree, leaving some with a decreased remittance haul of fewer billions of dollars. (The United States is the major remittance-sending country, […]
Never forget that illegal immigration is all about the money — not freedom or opportunity — just money. When illegals whine that they want a “better life” what they really mean is “more money” which can also take the form of “vanloads” of food stamps, free-to-them deluxe healthcare and subsidized college tuition for the young […]
Follow the money: it’s an admonition that is doubly true in the illegal alien scramble. Unlike wealthy Mexico (which pretends to be poor to mooch off the US even though it is #14 in national GDP), the Central American countries really are poor.
As a result, Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras love getting checks from their emigres […]
A new report from Pew Hispanic provides a reminder of how much money is strip-mined from the United States by foreign workers and sent to their homelands. In 2013, U.S. remittances accounted for three-quarters of the total in 2012 — $41 billion out of $52.9 billion sent to Latin American nations, according to World Bank […]
According to the Opravda media, Mexicans have quit breaking in to the US, so problem over, let’s just forget about the disagreeable subject of defending American sovereignty. (Although Central Americans keep coming as before.)
But whatever the media says about the border being secure, another measure, that of remittances, shows that Mexicans are now strip-mining America […]
According to the elite liberal media, illegal immigration has “sputtered to a trickle” and therefore the time is ripe for a massive amnesty, in the minds of the ever-hopeful Raza gang. (If illegal immigration were exploding to record levels, that would be time for amnesty also.)
However, it’s interesting to note that remittances to Mexico are […]
According to the New York Times, illegal immigration from Mexico has “sputtered to a trickle,” so we little citizens needn’t worry our heads about it any more. Yep, life is much improved in dear Mexico (except for the drug war in which 40,000 have been killed); therefore breaking in to the USA just doesn’t have […]
While mousing around earlier, I came across this bizarre pro-invasion item in Foreign Policy, celebrating the “contributions” that “migrants” make. The piece consists of 14 photos of foreigners dressed up in super-hero outfits, with the name of each and how much they regularly send home in remittances. Obviously the “contribution” is not to America, except […]
The Mexican government’s financial backing of a New York college program must be seen as increased meddling into American affairs. Mexico is alway complaining of poverty and looking for handouts from Washington (like the Merida Initiative for internal policing), but it has spare money for its auslanders thousands of miles away.
Of course, “poor Mexico” is […]
If there is one thing that annoys Mexicans, it is America standing up for its own sovereignty. Mexico, after all, has largely turned itself into a parasite state, mooching off the wealthy Uncle Sucker next door with Washington’s help.
In particular, Mexico depends on receiving billions of dollars from remittances sent by its exported people. Even […]
