The Great Deceit: The Mexican Drive to Re-colonize the United States ^ | July 6, 2005 | James H. Walsh

The Great Deceit: The Mexican Drive to Re-colonize the United States James H. Walsh Wednesday, July 6, 2005 Qui vult decipi, decipiatur – Let him who wishes to be deceived, be deceived.

Who controls the border between Mexico and the United States of America? Mexico! What is behind the constant stream of statements issued by Mexican officials, especially President Vicente Fox, that are influencing U.S. legislation – national, state, and local? Why does Mexico stridently object to every action by U.S. citizens to protect U.S. borders from illegal entries by undocumented aliens? Does Mexico seek to reclaim lands ceded to the United States in 1848 at the close of the Mexican-American War by re-colonizing the region? Official and unofficial Mexican interference with U.S. sovereignty and internal affairs is unprecedented in history – to the point that the United States of America verges on becoming the vassal of Los Estados Unidos de Mexico.

The Mexican government and Mexican criminal gangs (some say they are one and the same) have dropped all pretense of recognizing the legality of the Mexican-US border, let alone the U.S. government's feeble attempt at border enforcement. Mexico acts as though the United States of America is its unruly colony.

The Mexican government publicly berates and threatens U.S. officials and private individuals, who object to treating Mexican nationals as if they are U.S. citizens, especially those in the United States illegally.

President Vicente Fox ranks among the most strident of Mexican presidents on U.S. relations, with his demands that the United States consult Mexico on all decisions concerning the Mexican-US border and the treatment of illegal aliens. Fox knows well that most U.S. citizens, by choosing to ignore border problems, fail to comprehend the impact of the nearly 30 million illegal aliens – most of them Mexican citizens – now in the United States.

Their impact is felt not only on national security but also on natural ecosystems, health care costs, welfare costs, and the costs of crime and incarceration.

Fox was elected to the presidency of Mexico on July 2, 2000, as the first National Action Party (PAN) candidate, breaking the 70-year reign of the PRI (Party of Institutional Revolution).

Upon his election, Fox began an immediate dialogue with President-elect George W. Bush. They had become acquainted as governors of adjacent states divided by the Rio Grande. Mexican immigration into the United States is Fox's central concern. Mexico depends on emigration – legal and illegal – to relieve the pressures of over-population, under-education, lack of employment opportunities, and the desire to reclaim lost lands.

A number of Hispanic politicians admit to being members in their youth of Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA). Aztlan is the group's name for the U.S. lands they seek to re-colonize. Their goal is to do away with European-American heritage, culture, and language by sheer numbers, and they are succeeding. They support illegal immigration to provide foot soldiers in the battle against the gringos.

In 2000, Mexican consular offices in the United States began redefining the "matricula consular" cards that have been issued to Mexicans living abroad since 1870. Originally the cards were limited to obtaining consular assistance, but the new millennial version was issued to serve as a valid form of identification. Illegal aliens began using the cards to obtain bank accounts, drivers' licenses, social security benefits, worker permits, and even for identification at airports.

Redefining matricula consular cards constituted a deliberate act to undermine U.S. immigration laws. In short order, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Poland adopted the practice and quietly began issuing their own form of matricula consular cards. At first, the U.S. government was unable to agree on whether to accept these cards as valid identification. The Social Security Administration and the Internal Revenue Service accepted them, but the FBI did not.

In 2005, the U.S. Congress passed legislation effectively banning the use of these cards as valid identification (REAL ID Act 2005). President George Bush signed the bill into law, triggering a protest by Mexico and immigrant special interest groups.

An earlier protest by Mexican officials had been more effective. In 2003, Mexico protested against the U.S. Border Patrol's pilot program to test the efficacy of flying deported Mexicans to places on the Mexican-U.S. border far from where they were apprehended. The idea was to make illegal reentry into the United States more difficult. Mexican officials complained that the program was disruptive to their border communities, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security cancelled it after a month.

Fox, assisted by U.S. immigration special interest groups, began a public campaign to desensitize U.S. politicians and their constituents regarding unbridled illegal immigration and a de-facto open border. In November 2003, he visited New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. In each state, he advocated amnesty for illegal aliens – ignoring the prohibition by the U.S. Constitution of any state entering into a treaty, alliance, or confederation with another nation.

In declaring that the United States and Mexico "were united by nation and language," he referred to those lands in the western states ceded to the United States in 1848. Speaking as though the people of New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas were his constituents – and large numbers of Mexicans in the United States illegally continue to vote in Mexican elections by absentee ballots – Fox called for dual citizenship and voting rights for all Mexicans in the United States despite their immigration status. Increasingly, absentee ballots are crossing the border in both directions.

The Mexican government recently distributed a free comic book, entitled, "Guide for Mexican Migrants," which tells Mexican nationals how to successfully enter the United States illegally and how to avoid detection once there. The comic book states that illegal aliens have the same "rights" as U.S. citizens and to insist on those "rights".

In late 2004, Mexico's Border Czar, Arturo Gonzalez Cruz, proposed migration policies that transcend borders, make it easier for Mexican nationals to enter the United States, and eliminate the concept of illegal entry. In January 2005, the Mexican government prepared a second printing of the "Migrant Guide" despite U.S. objections. Congressman Tom Tancrado (R-CO) opined, "What would the Mexican government do, if we encourage our citizens to violate Mexican law?"

About this same time, the U.S. State Department issued a travel alert to U.S. citizens visiting northern Mexico because of drug-related violence and security and safety concerns. The Mexican government protested the U.S. action. The Fox administration implied that the U.S. travel warning was an attack on Mexican sovereignty and that the U.S. State Department "exaggerated" the level of violence on the Mexican-U.S. border.

He stated that crime was minimal – a conclusion contradicted in June 2005 by the assassination of the police chief of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, who was gunned down within hours of his appointment. Fox responded by sending 1000 federal police to Nuevo Laredo following the assassination––hardly a minimal crime.

The crime wave on the Mexican-U.S. border, whether on the interstate in Arizona or the U.S. Border Patrol's Laredo sector, is intertwined with drug smuggling and people smuggling, with U.S. citizens caught in the middle. This violence is being spread throughout the United States by Mexican, Salvadorian, Brazilian, Chinese, and Caribbean crime cartels.

Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez has threatened the U.S. government and individual U.S. citizens with various lawsuits. When Arizona citizens approved Proposition 200 in November 2004, restricting access to state benefits for illegal aliens, Derbez threatened to sue the State of Arizona in U.S. District Court, disregarding the necessary legal standing.

Later in April 2005, Derbez threatened to bring criminal charges in the World Court against the Minutemen, a grassroots effort by U.S. citizens concerned about unbridled illegal immigration and their government's inability to control the borders. Minutemen, who volunteer in this border-watch campaign, make no apprehensions but inform the U.S. Border Patrol of illegal entries that they observe.

In March 2005, President Fox stated that the Minutemen project showed a disdain for the rule of law north of the border. Senator John Kyl (R-AZ) suggested that President Fox respect the right of the United States to defend its borders and refrain from interfering with U.S. sovereignty.

Mexican officials and immigration special-interest groups rallied money and people to "monitor" the Minutemen and assure that illegal aliens had their "rights" protected. Not one incident of improper activity or "racism" occurred, contrary to President Fox's assertions.

Mexican radicals are telling those crossing the border illegally that the southwestern United States is actually Mexican land. Armed with this propaganda, illegal aliens have become violent and confrontational when stopped or questioned. The result is more assaults on U.S. Border Patrol agents and on U.S. citizens.

In the first part of 2005, the U.S. Border Patrol recorded 163 acts of violence in the Tucson sector compared with 118 for all of the previous year. At the same time, U.S. Border Patrol agents are being told by their supervisors to stand down and not pursue offenders. Alien smugglers know every nuance of U.S. Border Patrol orders. Such knowledge emboldens illegal border crossers, related criminals, and unfortunately terrorists.

The REAL ID legislation of May 2005 that will formally end acceptance by the U.S. government of matricula consular cards as valid identification also authorizes construction of more walls along the Mexican-US border. The first reaction by Mexican officials was that a firm and formal complaint would be made.

The Fox administration spokesman Ruben Aguilar said that Mexico might challenge the law before international organizations, such as the United Nations. President Fox was enraged. In a speech shortly thereafter, he said that although he respected U.S. sovereignty, the legislation was not the right approach.

In opposition to the legislation and in defense of Mexican migrant laborers, Fox said that Mexicans are doing jobs in the United States that not even blacks want to do. African-American civil rights activists demanded an apology.

The Governor of Zacatecas State of Mexico, which has one of the highest emigration rates in Mexico, criticized the U.S. Congressional action for not solving problems. U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) criticized the legislation, as did Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA). At least one California historian suggests that the senators actually represent Mexifornia, an evolving re-colonized land mass.

Congress must accept its responsibility for the chaos on the border, Republicans as well as Democrats. The Democrats led by Senators Kennedy, Durbin, Leahy, and Schumer consistently vote to restrict border enforcement, support the "rights" of illegal aliens, and oppose deportation.

Senator Kennedy's culpability dates back to his days as floor manager for the Immigration Act of 1965 (known as the Hart-Celler Act) that opened the flood gates of immigration – legal and especially illegal.

At the time, Senator Kennedy assured the American people, "The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs" (U.S. Senate, Feb. 10, 1965).

Senator Kennedy never wavers in his support of unlimited immigration to appeal to his one-world constituency. History has shown him to be on the wrong side of immigration legislation in 1965, and he remains on the wrong side today.

What is the motivation of the strident and unrelenting advocates of immigration? Could it be that the chaos of a Mexican-style governance is what the special-interest groups desire? Why are U.S. citizens oblivious to the ongoing re-colonization of the United States by Mexico? Are we desensitized by the propaganda of the immigrant special-interest groups to the point that the reality of the demographics evades us?

In Los Angeles, the KRCA-TV cable station, Noticias 62, advertises with a billboard that touts "Los Angeles, CA" but with the CA crossed out, and MEXICO stamped in bright red letters, accompanied by the motto, "Tu ciudad. Tu equipo" (Your city. Your team). The station's executive vice president, Lenard Liberman, responds, "But you just have to drive around L.A. to know that this is a Hispanic city." The billboard in L.A. is evidence of a Mexican drive well underway to re-colonize the United States.

James H. Walsh is a former Associate General Counsel of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, former federal prosecutor, and a U.S. German Marshall Fund Scholar on immigration.

Thankfully, we'll never end up like France with its unassimilated immigrant population achieving majority status by high birthrates.

Don't be too sure. Though, at least the Latinos are assimilating pretty well for the most part.

The sad part of Mexico's desire to become parasites upon the U.S., is that our government is supporting it. Fox runs a totally corrupt government, hell bent on influencing the political agenda of the U.S. which so far, they have been very sucsessful at doing. To the full detrement of the U.S., its citizens, its tax dollars, its soverignty, its Constitution and its system of laws.

Looks like the Mexicans have sucsessfully invaded the U.S. and have taken over the White House...can anyone prove me wrong???

Fox knows well that most U.S. citizens, by choosing to ignore border problems, fail to comprehend the impact of the nearly 30 million illegal aliens – most of them Mexican citizens – now in the United States.

Finally someone reporting the numbers accurately.

Its not that Mexico wants to take back land from the US.

It is that there are people who believe the borders between nations were written up too long ago and they want to form new nations that are not restrained by those old borders.

America... A multi-cultural coalition of free trading partners from the tip of Alaska, to Chile, is their goal much like Europe is trying to create the EU.

They know that the USA won't support it, so they don't make a big deal about the public aspect of it.

Huh? Are you aware that the current mayor of our second largest city was the founder of UCLA's MEChA chapter, which is dedicated to the creation of "Aztlan," the American Southwest, after it is torn from the USA?

The official symbol of MEChA is an eagle with a lit dynamite bomb in one talon (mecha means fuse) and an Aztex head chopper in the other talon. (The A in MEChA is for AZTLAN.)

Let's get something straight. There was no "Mexico" prior to Spanish colonization. There were Indian empires in southern and mid-Mexico, but those empires did not range in to what is now the U.S.

The Spanish occupied these Indian empires plus what is now the western U.S. from ~1500 til Mexican independence (declared 16 Sep 1810 and won several years later).

Therefore, the nation of Mexico occupied those lands that are now part of the U.S. for a maximum of 38 years before they were ceded to the U.S. in the aftermath of the Mexican War.

To claim that 38 years of occupation (and there was virtually no Mexican presence in these lands) trumps the U.S. occupation of almost 160 years is absurd.

And, if length of occupation is the benchmark, then the flag of Spain should be flying there.

Lest we not forget history, we'll be doomed to repeat it. Substitute "War on Terror" for "WWI", "Islam" for "Germany" and "2001" for "1914" and "2005" for "1917" below, and tell me what it sounds like.

Teaching With Documents Lesson Plan: The Zimmermann Telegram

Lesson Resources:   Standards Correlations, Teaching Activities, Worksheets

Zimmerman nTelegramBetween 1914 and the spring of 1917, the European nations engaged in a conflict that became known as World War I. While armies moved across the face of Europe, the United States remained neutral. In 1916 Woodrow Wilson was elected President for a second term, largely because of the slogan "He kept us out of war." Events in early 1917 would change that hope. In frustration over the effective British naval blockade, in February Germany broke its pledge to limit submarine warfare. In response to the breaking of the Sussex pledge, the United States severed diplomatic relations with Germany.

In January of 1917, British cryptographers deciphered a telegram from German Foreign Minister Arthur Zimmermann to the German Minister to Mexico, von Eckhardt, offering United States territory to Mexico in return for joining the German cause. This message helped draw the United States into the war and thus changed the course of history. The telegram had such an impact on American opinion that, according to David Kahn, author of The Codebreakers, "No other single cryptanalysis has had such enormous consequences." It is his opinion that "never before or since has so much turned upon the solution of a secret message." In an effort to protect their intelligence from detection and to capitalize on growing anti-German sentiment in the United States, the British waited until February 24 to present the telegram to Woodrow Wilson. The American press published news of the telegram on March 1. On April 6, 1917, the United States Congress formally declared war on Germany and its allies.

The story of British intelligence efforts to decipher the German code is fascinating and complicated. The Zimmermann Telegram by Barbara Tuchman recounts that story in all of its exciting detail. It is an excellent historical account for high school students.

The coded telegram is from Decimal File 862.20212/82A (1910-1929), and the decoded telegram below is from Decimal File 862.20212/69 (1910-1929), General Records of the Department of State, Record Group 59.

Mexico acts as though the United States of America is its unruly colony.

What is worse, the slugs running our government also act as if we are Mexico's unruly colony.

"Mayor MEChA"

Read about how a pro-communist, ultra-radical "MEChista" named Tony Villar cut his hair, changed his name, put on a tie, and became the mayor of America's second largest city.
