Mexico is No Friend of Ours

Do you remember that trip to Cancun or Acapulco where you had so much fun? The Mexican people were so nice to you. I remember a scientific collection trip deep into the heart of Mexico. The people in the little villages were hospitable and friendly. What a nice bunch of people with our basic Judeo-Christian values. Hard working folks interested in doing the best that they can for their families, and interested in improving their economic lot.

Why are they leaving their own country and coming to the U.S. in a virtual tsunami wave? Because, Mexico, with huge natural resources, is a third world nation corrupt to the core. Mexico can not exist without the cash received from the U.S., and the money sent back by their citizens is the number one cash crop. The Mexican citizens are literally farming the U.S. economy to fund Mexico.

OK, I can buy the motivation of the people argument. But, is Mexico, the country, a friend of the U.S. like President George W. Bush is so fond of stating? Retired U.S. Border Patrol Agent David J Stoddard says they are not our friend:

Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican school children are taught that the U.S. stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their schoolchildren.
Stoddard wrote an open letter to Sen. Frist on the subject of “…propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens.” Go here to read his posting of the letter.

Stoddard’s revelation about Mexican textbooks puts a new slant on the entire “Reconquista” issue. I’ve taken pot shots at the Reconquista crowd on these pages, but until now I’ve never taken them very seriously, even though they are a leftist organ. I’ve looked at them as a vile minority without much significance. That might not be the case. They could be the activists representing the tip of the iceberg of what is fomenting in Mexico.

Michelle Malkin posted that Los Angeles KTTV-LA television reporter Tony Valdez was interviewed on a LA local radio show and that:

Valdez rants about 1846, invokes “manifest destiny” as a rationale for supporting the sabotage of our immigration laws, recycles the “We didn’t cross the borders” nonsense…
Michelle posted that he said, “You took this country. You killed people in order to take this country for yourselves.”

There are tremendous leftist pressures in Mexico. Couple that with immense governmental corruption and crushing poverty and you have a recipe for revolution. With an immense Mexican population in the U.S., it is alarming to think of the potential consequences of a Mexican revolution with people dedicated to the Reconquista agenda. The Reconquista crowd is already in this country, and the movement could become a National Security issue in the future.

We do have a need for imported agricultural labor, and I support a guest worker program. We do not need imported labor in the trades, where they take the jobs of Americans and depress wages and benefits. We do not need illegal alien families living in poverty, and we don’t need them sucking up our social services. Guest worker does not mean prospective citizen, and it does not mean bringing your family or having a family in this country.

I say build the wall, militarize the border, prosecute U.S. employers who hire illegal aliens, create a guest worker program, start the deportation of illegal aliens, and seriously examine the value to this country for each alien applying for citizenship.

Mexico is showing its true colors by: a need to parasitize the U.S. economy by exporting its poverty; corruption, which facilitates drug trafficking; its flirtation with leftist policies; and an obsession with historical conflict, which resulted in the loss of territory. Mexico is no friend of the U.S.!
