Skip to comments.Invasion! U.S. 'sanctuary city' succumbs to illegals

A California "sanctuary city" has fallen victim to illegal immigration going bankrupt and firing all of its public employees, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.
The city of Maywood, Calif., hit the budget wall after it decided not only to be a sanctuary city, but to be a completely "safe haven" for illegal aliens seeking protection from deportation.
"Predictably, mainstream media newspapers, including the Financial Times in London, chose to present Maywood as a victim to the recession, rather than to tell the whole story that Maywood fell victim to illegal immigration," Corsi wrote.
"Crushed by the recession and falling tax revenues, the city is disbanding the police force and firing all public sector employees," Matthew Garrahan wrote in the Financial Times, never mentioning that illegal immigration was the problem.
Maywood is a small town comprising only about 1.2 square miles on the southern border of Los Angeles. More than 96 percent of its residents are Hispanic. The town's official population is listed at 29,000 but may be nearly 45,000 when illegal aliens living in Maywood are counted.

I visited Tijuana on business some few years ago, and I quickly came to understand from various chit-chat that Mexicans do not see themselves as "Hispanic". Somehow, the common people identify with the indigenous Indians, whatever their exact heritage might be. In fact, there is a Mexican elite, if I understand correctly, with Spanish roots, and the commoners see themeselves in opposition to them. I'm kind of vague on the whole thing, but there's a lot going on there.

In his books about Mexico and Texas, James Michener spoke of this distinction, from the earliest Spanish colonial times in Mexico.
The highest caste were those born in Spain.
Next were pureblooded Spaniards, born in Mexico.
Next were those of mixed Spanish and Indian blood.
Lowest caste were native Indians.
You are refering to the present day remnant of that hierarchy.
Throughout Latin America are others with fairly pure European origins; Italians, Portugese (Brazil), Germans, English, etc.
Here and there will be found “Jorge Schmidts” and “Hans Ramirez.” Lotsa Italians in Argentina.
In Mexico the pure Indians remain at the bottom, for the most part.
I demand all those fools go back to Siberia!! After all, they are the original invaders.
Will they still defend the illegal invasion even after this?
“Will they still defend the illegal invasion even after this?”
You betcha they will. This encourages them all the more.
Ones that go bankrupt and stop giving free stuff might actually see the illegals search for greener pastures.
But were is all the economic wealth these new “workers” are suppose to generate? Bwaaahhhh, lol
But (where) is all the economic wealth these new workers are suppose to generate? Bwaaahhhh, lol
Well, they should turn their attention to Mexico City and try to take the government away from the white elite that has misruled them since 1820.
And that, ladies and gents, is how it is done and will continue to be done.
Look for Maywoods in the future. A bloodless, relatively speaking, invasion and conquista.
From what I can gather by talking to one of the Spanish “elite” of Mexico’s ruling class, those of pure Spanish blood(no Indian blood) see themselves as far and above the ordinary Mexicans and even get pissed if you call them Mexican. This was from a woman I dated briefly a few years ago.
Ahh well; stupid is as stupid does, I suppose.
Austin is a sanctuary city ping.
Sounds to me as if they are running away from a racist society, coming to the US, and calling us racist. Maybe they need to fix their own Country.
Today, I try to avoid going into Austin if at all possible--and I try not to spend any more money than I have to there. T hat's not easy to avoid as it's hard to know where Lakeway stops and Oak Hill or some other little suburb starts, and then you're in Austin and don't know it---LOL!
We spend most of our money in Cedar Park and Leander. Gas is usually $.10 - .15 cheaper in those cities than Austin. I hate Austin traffic anyway, but have to deal with it four days a week.
