Ask a Mexican: Who's the most pro-Mexican GOP candidate?

Ask a Mexican: Who's the most pro-Mexican GOP candidate?

Dear Mexican: My family for six generations have been born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. Everyone speaks Spanish most of the time. Right now, almost every Republican in the state is trying to get redistricting to the finish line to cut out the bumper crop of Mexican American candidates from coming up.  They passed voter ID laws recently, and you begin to get the idea after a few citizen deportations to Mexico that the Texan Republican legislature doesn't really like us.

Ron Paul has gotten some trace traction with Puerto Ricans and Florida Hispanics recently. That doesn't fix the fact that all of his homies in Texas who have voted for him every year HATE LOCAL HISPANICS. His rhetoric sounds good sometimes because it seems so constitutional.  Can you take a quick look at his immigration and border policies and tell me what kind of mess it would make (or not) for a Mexican American to pick Ron Paul, much less ANYONE, in the GOP?

Dear Wab: I actually know more than a few Mexicans who are Ron Paul supporters (shout-out to P. Sergio!) because — as I've noted many times before — Mexicans are natural libertarians: want the government out of their lives, hate the drug war, and love money. But when it comes to the issue of immigration, Paul is two tacos short of a combo plate. For a man who believes in open commerce, he wants to severely regulate immigration. For someone who believes in people being able to determine their own lives free of governmental diktat, he doesn't support the DREAM Act and wants to repeal birthright citizenship. For someone so right-on about America's imperial wars, he'd have America's military patrol the U.S-Mexico border. That Ron Paul's immigration policy is basically no different than that of his Republican colleagues in the face of an otherwise-impressive policy platform is costing him millions of Mexi votes and is the biggest disappointment a liberty-loving Mexican has faced since the Mexican national soccer team.

Dear Mexican: Unlike many gabachas living in Tucson, I love living in a bilingual city and am trying to learn to speak better Spanish. Because of this, I am watching a lot of Spanish-language television. My problem? I am a science fiction nerd. Although I enjoy the novelas, horror movies, and gameshows, I haven't found any good science fiction shows to watch. I see lots of Mexicans at comic book/sci-fi cons/movies, and superhero and Star Wars cosplay seems popular with the kids, so the genre must have enough fans to support some programs. So where can I look for Spanish shows with spaceships and lots of pew-pew-pew?
Where No Gabacha Has Gone Before

Dear Gabacha: Gracias for reminding us that normal gabachos live in Tucson and the city's isn't composed of spree killers and Know Nothings who ban Mexican-American studies and books by Sherman Alexie from schoolchildren lest Mexi kids learn and shit. As for your query: I take it you haven't mined the canon of Santo, the legendary silver-masked wrestler? He fought diabolical brains, evil brains, and plain ol' invading Martians when not fending off vampire women and other horror tropes. There was a chingón 2008 indie movie, Sleep Dealer, that was like Blade Runner meets Born in East LA, and UCLA had a film retrospective of Mexican sci-fi from the 1950s a couple of years ago. But the greatest example of Mexican sci-fi, as you noted, is the Star Wars galaxy — I'll leave people with the examples of Chuy Baca and Arturito and leave ustedes to divine the rest!

JUST COMPLAINING DOES NOTHING?

In a new study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), The State of Arizona has efficiently reversed the influx of illegal aliens by instituting state laws intended to depress mass illegal migrants and immigrants from residing or remaining in the state. So the question is, where are they going? Is it not ‘poetic justice’ for want of a better word that unknown numbers of illegal aliens are heading for the so-called Sanctuary States of California or Nevada? Already these Border States are under the massive burden of the illegal alien invasion from South of the border. My guess is they will flee to the Liberal fortresses, mainly the bastions of Los Angeles county and San Francisco with ordinances such as "special Order 40". An Ordinance concocted by a previous Chief of Police Daryl Gates, saying in summary that local police cannot ask anybody that is under suspicion, their immigration status? Even though what the LAPD is doing is illegal, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano, both egomaniacs have ignored immigration laws. So Californians with have to grin and bear it, unlike other states as Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana, South Carolina as leaders of the anti-illegal immigration campaign to stop welfare predators and the advancement of fiscal unfunded mandates.

California populace seems completely oblivious to the billions of dollars going out the door, forced on them by the courts, as they have in 44 other states. The Liberal politician in Sacramento need to be shown the exit door as their misguidance has brought upon Californian taxpayers a 13 billion dollar deficit. These lawmakers are being charitable with taxpayer’s money and pandering to the millions of illegal aliens squatting in the state, leaving hardly anything left for lawful residents. Can Americans be so predictably gullible, that with our own wallets strained, we must care for anybody who creeps into this country in the dead of night? Which new candidate for President is going to halt this fiasco of taking away from our own poor, our elderly, homeless, sick and appropriating it for people that should be removed forthwith? In California programs that aided our own low income, has been diverted to illegal alien families?

THIS IS NOT ABOUT A PERSONS RACE, NATIONALITY OR IMMIGRATION STATUS THIS IS ABOUT ECONOMICS--MONEY. BUT POWER, CORRUPTION AND GREED! VOTES FOR DEMOCRATS--LEGAL OR ILLEGAL VOTES AND DISCOUNT FOREIGN LABOR. THIS IS STRICTLY ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF U.S. BORN CITIZENS, NATURALIZED CITIZENS AND GREEN CARD HOLDERS. AMERICANS WHO HAVE BEEN VIOLATED BY THE POLITICIANS, SPECIAL INTEREST LOBBYISTS, UNIONS, THE CHURCH AND RADICAL GROUPS THAT ARE HIGHJACKING ENTITLEMENTS NEEDED BY OUR OWN IMPOVERISHED. THESE ARE TWO IMMIGRATION LAWS THAT CAN BRING ADDED SANENESS TO ENFORCEMENT.

THE STATE OF ARIZONA, ALABAMA, GEORGIA, UTAH, SOUTH CAROLINA OR ANYBODY ELSE WOULD NEED TO CUT DIFFERENT PROGRAMS FOR THEIR LEGAL RESIDENTS, IF THEY WERE NOT FORCED BY ACTIVIST FEDERAL JUDGES TO SUBSIDIZE ANY FOREIGN NATIONAL WHO BREECHES IMMIGRATION LAWS.

1. DEMAND “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE” BILL, (H.R. 2885) BE PLACED BEFORE CONGRESS. Mandatory E-Verify will inflict fear into every business that hires illegal labor. Simple and straightforward that anybody business owner caught after the nationwide implementation will face strict penalties, that includes huge fines, asset confiscation and prison. Whereas President Obama has been shown currently of weakening ICE raids on companies, who use elicit workers. Mitt Romney is right—that once the job market for illegal job seekers, dries up thousands will leave. This is ATTRITION through Enforcement, with little or no dollars spent, with the deciding factor that has a right to work. The electronic Social Security program hooked onto Homeland Security data bases will reject unauthorized labor. As an addition a special monetary reward fund for informants or “Whistle Blowers” who report suspicious activity on company payrolls. Use hundreds of millions of dollars in fines, to recruit more agents for our undermanned border and begin the construction of former President Bush’s “2006 Secure Fence Act” that was dropped by the elites in the Republican Party, with assistance of the Democrats. We need the double parallel fencing from San Diego, California to Brownsville, Texas.

2. An Amendment to the 14th Amendment will discard this irrational law, that every baby born in America has a right to citizenship. The amendment will rescind this law, instituting that only a baby born of a legal parent(S), has the status to become a citizen. With an estimated 340.000 annual illegal alien Mothers, surging into this nation by misleading the immigration authorities, this must be brought to an abrupt stop. Unfortunately the word has spread throughout the world, that if a Mother of an unborn child can pass agents at entry points, then they can claim the misguided law that says they can award their baby with all the free benefits associated with citizenship. Billions of dollars are appropriated in this way for the whole family. They are very well versed that for every child they can birth, there is a cornucopia of cash payments and public assistance programs. Under The Birthright Citizenship Bill” ( H.R.140) we can finally bring an end to these expensive deficits, laid upon every state taxpayer.

Now with Arizona's positive draconian enforcement policing laws, illegal aliens are fleeing to the Liberal welcoming arms of California and states that have disregarded the pleading message from their populations. Two main laws must find passage by the “THE PEOPLE’S PARTY, the growing Tea Party, and all Constitutional Conservative Americans are sick and tired of supporting people who broke into this country, from every corner of the world. It is an unrelenting bombardment of dire poverty, which the courts have coerced all of us into paying for other countries desperate and poor. School fees, health care, prison cells and growing list including President Obama's agenda of food stamps for all. They slip past immigration agents at entry points as disguised tourist with hidden fetuses and immediately apply for their baby’s citizenship. That then allows them to collect all the public assistance programs and get free treatments in delivery rooms, leaving the taxpayers to carry the fees. They steal our Social Security numbers, which in itself is a felony, but under USICS (Immigration & Citizenship Services) thousands have been allowed to stay, even though they have used other people's ID. This is not a victimless crime, as unknown numbers of ordinary Americans have had their credit crippled, by this serious violation. Remember we are not only importing the poor of other countries, but the criminals as well. The drug cartels are spillling over into America and impregnating our children with filthy drugs. In our prisons are the murderers, child pedifiles, the hit and run drunken drivers, theives and a whole host of individuals. Frontier states have the larger share of home invasion robberies, kidnappings and many other crimes that was less know until this invasion.

I hope that California residents realize there being cheated out of billions of dollars annually? Just ask Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Andronovich of not just millions, but billions of dollars annually being collected by foreign nationals. No wonder Los Angeles County has to folk out $48.000.000 dollars in just the month of June 2009. Is there any record of what the cost would be currently, with the deluge already here and the 500.000 estimate that appear each year looking for their free handouts? Risk a few minutes of your time and find the Website “American Patrol”, and investigate the news that is suppressed by the majority Liberal Press. Also scan through NUMBERSUSA website and see the grading system for Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and Paul and their stance on enforcement of immigration laws? Call your US Senator or House Representative today or even contact your State equivalent, and insist they sponsor E-Verify and the Birthright citizenship bills and be prepared for indifference.States like California are pampering illegal aliens, have numerous times pro-illegal immigrant advocacy groups has tried to pass a law to allow these people to apply for drivers licenses, but the previous governors have veto'ed any passage. Texas should not entertain giving licenses or any priviledges, to anybody as the state of New Mexico or Washington state, because it just attracts even more violations of the law?

Keep harassing them by calling 202-224-3121 the Washington central board at or otherwise, we will keep hemorrhaging billions of dollars. The future of a Constitutional America is in your hands, not the route of Socialized medicine and the different agenda of President Obama and his Liberal progressive Czars in Washington? If Obama is returned to office, he has promised to enact a blanket Amnesty. The cost according to “The heritage foundation” website $2.6 Trillion dollars, adding to what taxpayers have extorted from them each year; $113 Billion dollars in welfare packages for illegal aliens. Join a local TEA PARTY membership as this is likely to be the only way to save ourselves from these crazy spending culprits. Remember also the Democrats will use any means to re-appoint President Obama, including overlooking non-citizens voting in all elections.
