Mexican Imperialism Comes Out Of The Closet

By Patrick J. Buchanan 

"Mexico does not end at its borders. ... Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico."

That astonishing claim, by Mexican President Felipe Calderon, in his state of the nation address at the National Palace Sunday, brought his audience wildly cheering to its feet. [Message to the Nation from the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, on the occasion of his first State of the Nation Report]

Were the United States a serious nation, Calderon's claim that Mexico extends into the United States would have produced an instant demand from the U.S. ambassador for clarification.

Failing to receive it, he would have packed his bags, and the United States would be on the verge of severing diplomatic relations.

In an earlier time, U.S. troops would be rolling to the border.

For this is not the first time an arrogant Mexican ruler has made a claim to extra-territorial rights inside the United States and, indeed, to U.S. territory. Mexico's presidents have gotten into a habit of suborning treason against the United States

In 1995, President Ernesto Zedillo told a Dallas audience of U.S. citizens of Mexican descent, "You are Mexicans, Mexicans who live north of the border." I.e., you owe loyalty to Mexico, not Uncle Sam.

In 1997, Zedillo brought a Chicago gathering of La Raza to its feet by exclaiming, "I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders." [He afirmado con orgullo que la Nación Mexicana se extiende más allá de sus fronteras y que los migrantes mexicanos son una parte importante de ella. July 23, 1997]

In 1998, Mexico changed its constitution to restore citizenship to Mexican-Americans who have taken an oath of allegiance to the United States and renounced loyalty to any other country.

Purpose: loosen their ties of loyalty to the United States, re-knit their ties of loyalty to Mexico, and persuade Mexican-Americans to vote Mexico's interests in the U.S.A. Put Mexico first, even if you have taken an oath of allegiance to the United States.

In June 2004, President Vicente Fox took the Zedillo road to the Mexican-American community in Chicago. There, he, too, declared: "We are Mexicans that live in our territories, and we are Mexicans that live in other territories. In reality, there are 120 million that live together and are working together to construct a nation."

President Fox was saying that the construction of his nation is taking place—inside our nation. Is that not sedition?

In 2005, the head of the Institute of Mexicans Abroad, Carlos Gutierrez, asserted, "The Mexican nation goes beyond the borders that contain Mexico."

What these Mexican politicians are saying is that Mexico extends into the United States, and the first loyalty of all men and women of Mexican ancestry is, no matter where they live, to Mexico.

Mexico's rulers believe in a nation of history, blood and soil that pre-existed, and supersedes, any pledge of allegiance any Mexican may make to another country, especially to the United States.

Is George W. Bush vaguely aware of any of this?

At the Quebec summit, Bush mocked the idea of a merger of a North American Union as a fantasy of conspiracy theorists. "It's quite comical actually, to realize the difference between reality and what some people on TV are talking about." [Bush denies superstate rumors, By Jon Ward, Washington Times, August 22, 2007]

Calderon laughed it off, too. "I'd be happy with one foot in Mexicali and one in Tijuana." But in his state of the nation, Felipe is talking about one foot in Mexico and one in Los Angeles.

Is Bush oblivious to what his friend Vicente Fox laid down in Madrid in 2002 as the long-term strategy of Mexico?

"Eventually, our long-range objective is to establish with the United States ... an ensemble of connections and institutions similar to those created by the European Union, with the goal of attending to future themes as important as ... the freedom of movement of capital, goods, services and persons. The new framework we wish to construct is inspired in the example of the European Union." [Translation by Allan Wall: Does Dubya Know About Fox’s Madrid Speech?, Vdare.com, May 29, 2002, Original in Spanish here.]

Fox is talking about the erasure of borders.

Whether Bush is aware of this really makes no difference. For the real issue is not what the Mexican regime has in mind, but whether we can stop it, or whether we have passed a point of no return.

Today, already, there are 45 million Hispanics in the United States, perhaps half from Mexico, and 37 million immigrants.

Now, Steve Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies projects—using official Census Bureau figures of 1.25 million legal and illegal immigrants entering and staying in the United States every year—a U.S. population of 468 million by 2060.

We will add as many people—167 million—in the next half-century as the entire population of the United States when JFK was elected.

Some 105 million of these folks will be immigrants and their children. That 105 million is equal to the entire population of Mexico, whence most of these folks will be coming.

No wonder Mexican presidents are coming out of the closet about what is up. They know the gringos can't stop it, for they have the American establishment on their side.

Buenas noches, America.

Oh dear gosh and a half.
I have just pressed the "submit" button on my first completed college application. I feel so vulnerable. However, I guess I'm relieved a little bit. It's one less thing to do this weekend, one more thing checked off of my list. But it's strange to know that a chunk of my future life is now totally out of my hands...Makes me feel very empty and small, very scrutinized and voiceless.
Argh. And now the grammatical terrors have set in...I'm never reading that essay again, for fear of finding a misplaced comma or a "their" instead of "there" that can never be replaced.
For the record, it was Loyola Chicago's fasttrack that I just sent in, not the terrifying UChicago application. I'm going to cry over that one for a while tonight, methinks.

So, I've been slowly crossing people off of this list that I have (I'm quite a fan of lists). This particular list is a "List of People to Talk to About the College Search and Application Process." People have a very frustrating tendency to get themselves crossed off this list by racking up a list of twelve and a half institutions of higher education and managing to apply to all of them.
It really perplexes me to no end. I barely manage to stay on top of all of my homework. I've made some progress on the common app and on individual applications, I've actually given some teachers a few recommendations to write, but I haven't actually submitted anything. I think I have some sort of mental block against it. It's a finality thing. I don't ever like totally closing the book on anything. I like keeping that window wedged just slightly short of fully closed, having that doorstop propping things open. I don't like the fact that once I click a link, the future of my college decision with that particular institution has forever gone out of my hands. I think that, after I finish my first essay and send it off for good, I will spend a sleepless night terrified that I have misplaced a too with a to or a there with a their.
Oh gosh. The thought seriously freaks me out. What if that happened?! not even kidding. I guess that's what editing and revision are for, but seriously. Something could still slip through.
Oh, and is it bad that I haven't actually taken the ACT yet? I'm signed up to take it in two weeks though. Has anyone out there in the ether taken it or taken a prep course and have any tips for me?
Urg. College. It better be worth it. I'm expecting Animal House with cuter guys. Preferably British-accented international student ones.
