Reconquista

Ya haber llegado: pobre, analfabeto, e no especializado

They have already arrived: poor, illiterate, and unskilled.

H. A. Scott Trask, an independent historian, wrote in the June 2016 issue of Chronicles (A magazine of American culture), “The United States has begun to fit the social and political profile of a Latin-American banana republic.”

Mr. Trask lists the evidence: a multicultural society; fierce racial antagonisms; weak sense of national identity; a class of super rich “who live mostly apart from the rest of the people”; a ruling oligarchy (the political class); imperial presidents with dictatorial powers; a corrupt congress in collusion with big corporate interests; a police surveillance state.

We are becoming an extension of Mexico because its people come here unrestricted. Trask titles his essay The Mexicanization of North America.

A virtual “open border” policy demonstrates that federal failure to secure our Southern border from invasions of illegal aliens is destroying our economy and culture. The “Latino” invasion (from Mexico and Central American countries) has spread throughout the States, and is now “the largest ethnic minority in the country.”

Mexican drug cartels have a highly organized system established here to distribute hard drugs throughout the U. S. Illegals operate marijuana plantations on our national forests in Western States. Cheap labor in agriculture, horticultural businesses and in meat processing plants in California, the Midwest and North Carolina has driven down wages in America. Billions of dollars of resources are spent from American taxpayer’s money on additional crime control, incarceration, schooling, welfare payments and healthcare for illegal invaders.

Why is this happening? Simple—because our federal political class want it to. Mr. Trask explains the hard truth: they expect us to buy into “the conflicting myths of assimilation and mosaic.” The myth of assimilation is that the invaders will become like us; the myth of mosaic is that “they will enrich us because they are different.”

Assimilation once worked to the benefit of American society—when limited, legal and selected immigrants came from developed Western civilizations with similar cultural characteristics. Now that cohesiveness has been destroyed because of cultural differences.

Trask writes: Yet America’s overly generous and undiscriminating immigration policy is driven also by ethnic resentments and politico-economic calculations. As Americans have turned against the policy, naked power has stepped forward to tell them that the policy will remain the same, whether they like it or not. And this is another way that we have become like Mexico: We have awakened to realize that our government is not our own, that we are ruled, essentially, by our enemies.

For many years establishment politicians promised “peace and prosperity if trade is free, borders are open, and labor is abundant. Yet the fruits of NAFTA have been lower wages, a drug war, a flood of illegals, and the spread of organized crime.” Presidents’ George Bush and Vicente Fox deceived us fifteen years ago.

Fox, speaking to La Raza (The Race) praised Mexican emigrants as “national heroes.” Trask notes the strange irony that fleeing one’s country is heroic, but Fox clearly was glad that these people (mestizos, indios, paisanos) were no longer in his country. They have been ticking bombs ready to explode with anger toward his “largely ethnic European ruling class.” Encouraging them to cross over the border relieves his class from the pressure of revolution—of course, it passes that potential problem on to the United States—witness the angry mobs threatening violence at Donald Trump rallies.

Trump, has identified the problems associated with invasion of our country by Mexican illegals: drugs, violent crime and “being sent here.” That was one of his original political positions that resonated powerfully with American voters: Stop illegal immigrants; secure the borders. No other presidential candidate had the courage to bluntly express these needs; in fact, some Republicans such as Jeb Bush and John Kasich denounced Mr. Trump, as did radical illegal immigration activists and media pundits.

Mr. Trask, citing another reference, writes: “The concept of revenge is part of the Mexican political system.” Re-conquest (reconquista) is “a kind of collective revenge.” Mexican children are taught that North Americans “stole half their country from them.” A one-way open border presumably relieves the pressure on the “power, privilege, and wealth” of the Mexican political elite.

Twenty years ago Jorge Castaneda, a Mexican official, wrote in The Atlantic magazine that we Americans “had to choose between Mexican immigration and Mexican chaos. Today we have been inundated (with illegals), but Mexico is more violent and unstable” than when he made that statement. Corruption is rampant. Worse, “U.S. aid and assistance to the Mexican government in its phony war on drugs strengthens the Mexican state by eradicating all criminal organizations that are not in alliance with it.”

Vicente Fox accepted a $40 million bribe “to facilitate the escape of Chapo Guzman from the Puente Grande maximum-security prison, and thereafter to provide political protection and military support for his Sinaloa Cartel.”

Mr. Trask reveals much more disturbing information such as the “$1.6 billion Merida Initiative in 2006” given by our government for “unprecedented levels of aid, assistance, and training to Mexican law-enforcement and security forces” and tens of millions of dollars for “judicial reform, institution building, human rights and rule-of-law issues.”

That we must pay to subsidize illegal aliens threatening our culture is bad enough, but it’s a further outrage that the American taxpayers are propping up a corrupt Mexican state that “is essentially the public face of Mexican organized crime.”

In addition to cutting off aid to the corrupt Mexican government, I support the suggested plan of others to deploy our military from the hopeless ventures with corrupt Middle Eastern regimes to our Southern border. They are needed here to protect our country from further invasions by Mexican and Central American people who are damaging our economy and destroying our culture.

Although I have supported Sen. Ted Cruz for president, Donald Trump may be our only hope to implement federal policies that will protect our country from the destructive foreign invasion from Mexico.
