RE: "It was reminiscent (in my mind)of old film footage of the american nazi party meeting at Madison Square Garden in the late 30's"

Excellent comparison.

I would suggest that rather than American Nazis these were almost all Germans living here. Many of them returned to Germany to fight for Germany.

Today we have IMO a similar form of "immigration;" foreigners coming here but leaving their hearts in the home country. Mexico is not the only nation involved but it is the most active.

Another disturbing similarity is the use of numerous home town associations (HTA) by citizens of Mexico here in the U.S. HTA's are not new and I believe that many Germans used them extensively to express loyalty to Germany prior to W.W.II.

I am not saying Mexico is like Nazi Germany. Nazi Germany was not totally corrupt. :)

One Internet source says, "HTA projects in communities of origin are intended to alleviate poverty and decades of neglect by local governments. HTAs depend entirely on voluntary contributions [remittances from their citizens living in the U.S.] and efforts by members who support social development projects. This work has been characterized by efficacy, honesty, and transparency.

"HTAs, along with other immigrant self-help groups, function as social networks and transmitters of culture and values to the American-born generation. One of their most important challenges is the incorporation of the second generation into HTA activities."

HTAs encourage remittances to fund projects in Mexicorruption (taxes?) and HTA's keep Mexicans Mexican. That's the plan. That's Mexicorruption's "nation beyond borders" and Mexicans living here are Mexicorruption's nonresident citizens.

Immigration ain't what it used to be when Mexicans came here to be citizens of the U.S. and how proud we all (also immigrants) were to have them.

Uh, HTA associations were HUGE among Italian Americans. When I lived in the Bronz, there was the Catania and Corleone social clubs founded by men from those two Sicillian villages. They were also big among German and Greek Americans, but were probably most popular among Italians. Just a little history.

Yes you are right, but there is no other country that is actively trying to steal part of our country like Mexico is doing by openly declaring that they are going to steal back the Southwest USA from us. They are capitalizing on the political correctness of Americans who they know that most will turn a blind eye to this for fear of being called racist. This is absolutely insanity at it's worst. If we are not willing to fight for our own country, then they will surely succed in this devious plot.
