Buenas Noches, America
Human Events ^ | September 6, 2007 | Patrick J. Buchanan

Posted on 09/06/2007 12:22:51 PM PDT by Travis McGee

"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. 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."

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 Mexicans 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."

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."

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.

The current population of Mexico is about 100 million. It would be easy to see between five and ten million births per year. That means that the population could be replenished, plus send five million more illegals across our borders every year without it’s own population going down.

Five million, twenty years... 100 million people. And Mexico could keep it up for decades.

How about as an ‘exchage’ of sorts we send unemployed groups of people from the US to live in Acapulco, Cancun, and Mazatlan etc. They can just live on the beach and do odd jobs at local hotels and restaurants. Of course, they should then send their money back to the US. And, we will offer them dual citizenship if they decide to apply for Mexican citizenship. We can also periodically send US officials down there to speak to them about how they are extending the borders of the US.

North Carolina is "with the program." Look at what's on the back of their new drivers licenses. They are proudly, "North American Union ready."

I guess one state had to be the first to officially go Quisling.

Bush applauds the Mexicans who stayed in the United States after the Texas territory was acquired from Mexico:

"Many of them were treated as foreigners in their own land. Yet they didn't choose to run. They stayed. This was their home. They worked, raised families, and built communities. Their sweat, tenacity, and heart helped build this country."

Yea, if mexico does not get severely punk-slapped (mass immediate deportation upon detection) and a coast to coast wall-fencing system shoved in their face there will be a full blown shooting war and it will be right here in the good old USA.

Yea, they will of course snivel, whine and screech “racism.”

Mexico's total fertility rate, 2.39, is well above replacement level. It's annual population growth rate [including those who leave] is 1.153% [compared to our .89%], which means that with a current total population of 108,700,000, Mexico's population is increasing about 1.3 million a year.

So even with a net migration rate of minus 4.08 migrant(s)/1,000 population (2007 est.), Mexico is still increasing its population. So they should have no problem supplying us with plenty of illegals. The median age of Mexico is 25.6 compared to our 36.6.

One has only to look at Mexico to realize just what percentage of our nation was built by the Mexicans who stayed here.

I appreciate everyone who contributed, but we should keep a realistic perspective.

Yes, we’re in general agreement with your premise. I have suggested a higher birth rate, but then what you documented could be increased with incentives from the government. Frankly, that’s what we should be doing also.

The Mexican Nationality Law became effective March 20th, 1998.

"* It will strengthen links among Mexicans at home and abroad.

"* It will allow Mexicans to keep their nationality after adopting another one from a foreign country.

"* It will give individuals who may have lost their Mexican nationality, an opportunity to recover it . . .

"Mexicans living abroad will not be required to serve in the Mexican armed forces. They will only be required to register at the age of 18, either in Mexico or at its consulates or embassies."

Interesting. Because even ILLEGAL aliens living here are required to register with our selective service. They do not need a SSN to register and they will not have to provide any information that will ID them as ILLEGAL.

Let me guess. Washington worked out deal with Mexicorruption that excuses ILLEGAL aliens from Mexicorruption if they register with Mexicorruption? They will of course still be eligible for all our goodies (college tuition for example) that U.S. citizens and legal residents are denied if they fail to register. I bet.

Virtually every United States Senator, and the current President, are millionaires at minimum. They live in an, elitist, privileged atmosphere, both at their so-called home venue, and Washington DC, where there are NO illegal immigrants in their neighborhood. And there never will be except for servants

Every US Senator, everyday, has their a** kissed by lobbyists, and special interests.

Every US Senator, and the shadow collusions who back them, discuss behind closed doors what they decide for "America."

Every US Senator gets a life pension, re-elected or not, of about 200 grand a year.

And there ain't an engineer, electrician, or creative mind among them.

Yet there are people who will willfully elect one for President.

Think Arlen Specter, Robert Byrd, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, John Warner, Charles Schumer, Diane Feinstein, etc. etc.

And some deny we live in an Oligarchy!

About 10 BC Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon with a number of legions for:

Every Roman Senator was a multimillionaire.

Every Roman Senator lived in a privileged, elitist atmosphere, with no barbarians in their neighborhood except for servants.

Every Roman Senator had their a** kissed everyday by, etc. etc.

"Finally, I have said that Mexico does not end at the border, that wherever there is a Mexican Mexico is there; this is why the actions of the Government in favor of our migrating countrymen is guided by principles, by the defense and protection of their rights, by prevention for detecting measures that may affect our people and by the professionalism we must offer our co-nationals.

For this reason, we are already using all the resources of our consular network for the benefit of Mexicans abroad. On behalf of the Mexican Government, I again strongly protest the unilateral measures taken by the United States Congress and Government, measures that are making the persecution and humiliating treatment of undocumented Mexican workers worse.

The insensitivity shown toward those who contribute a great deal to the economy and to society in the United States has been incentive to redouble our battle to gain recognition of their enormous contribution to the economies of both nations and to defend their rights.

Therefore, the Government of Mexico will continue to firmly insist to both countries’ societies and Governments on the necessity of comprehensive immigration reform and of categorically rejecting construction of a wall on our common border."

Message to the Nation from the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, on the occasion of his first State of the Union Address. - Sunday, September 2 | Special Events/Communications National Palace, Mexico City.
