    ....... it turns out the Mexicans have quite a few racism problems of their own. Fresh off Vatican Radio, which takes this sort of news from the United Nations seriously, the Mexicans have been told to clean up their act on all the rampant racism against their indigenous peoples, something that has been going on as long as there's been a Mexico.

    Mexico's government rebuked Israel on Saturday for a tweet by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that appeared to applaud U.S. President Donald Trump's plan to build a border wall with Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants. Netanyahu said on Twitter earlier on Saturday: "President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea." The comment was swiftly rejected by leaders of the Jewish community in Mexico, and prompted an unusually blunt statement from Mexico's foreign ministry. "The Foreign Ministry expressed to the government of Israel, via its ambassador in Mexico,...

    Evidently, Donald Trump had a huge impact on Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto during his visit to Mexico City in August. Mexican officialss are talking about building a great wall on its southern border with Central America. The Daily Mail reported: It seems Mexico agrees with Donald Trump’s plans to build a wall to keep out illegal immigrants – but only on its southern border with Central America. Mexicans are calling for the border wall to keep out Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans fleeing violence in their own countries. They complain ‘hordes’ of immigrants pass through on their way to the...

    There is no way Mexico would fund Donald Trump's "terrible" plan to build a wall along its border with the United States if the Republican front-runner wins the U.S. presidential election, the Mexican finance minister said. Trump, the New York billionaire developer and former reality television star, sparked outrage in Mexico when he vowed to force Latin America's second largest economy to pay for a wall along the southern U.S. border to stem the flow of illegal immigration and drugs. In a televised interview late on Wednesday, Finance Minister Luis Videgaray categorically rejected the proposal. "Under no circumstance will Mexico...

    While Mexican leaders have emphatically denounced Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s call to build a wall along the United States’ southern border, Guatemala's President Jimmy Morales is offering a helping hand. In a Spanish-language interview with the New York Times en Español, Morales – a TV comedian before getting elected to the country's highest office – said that he is offering the billionaire businessman bargain workers to build his proposed wall. "To the gentleman who wants to build a wall, I offer cheap labor," Morales said during the interview, according to the Hill. "We have high-quality labor, and we'll gladly build...

"Tell us the dimensions, and we know how to do it," said Morales.
  • “Border Security” Is NOT “Border Security” Without A Long, Strong, High, Double-Sided Fence

    Today I read Bill Kristol’s assessment and realize that the House GOP leadership has no idea what they are doing on the topic of border security, which absolutely requires a long, strong, high, double-sided fence with a road running between the two fences. This “fence project” is a necessary though not sufficient condition to border security, emphasis on “necessary.” Other things, like visa reform, are also key, but the double-sided fence is what voters want to see built. Consultants and pollsters have told the House GOP leadership that they must be for “border security,” but that they cannot be for...

    House Republicans were sprinting to the finish line Thursday to secure every last vote to pass an emergency funding measure to address the humanitarian crisis on the southern border in a dramatic and chaotic final day of the summer session. Though a few House Democrats will join the GOP majority to back a $659 million emergency funding package, Republicans don’t want to rely on them to get the necessary votes to secure final passage. Still, some conservatives were reticent ahead of votes expected Thursday afternoon, even after House Republican leaders threw some red meat to the right by adding a...

    ...The Immigration Bill could have succeeded if the political class in Congress and the president had listened to the public and addressed the four distinct problems. Namely, secure the borders convincingly, expand the temporary worker program for skilled legal immigrants, establish a reliable legal immigrant identification program and then propose a reasonable program for the 12 million (and counting) illegal persons who broke our laws to get here, but not amnesty...

    PHOENIX - After first apologizing for suggesting an electric fence along the border, Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain told reporters here Monday that he still thinks it's a good idea for controlling illegal immigration. "I'm not walking away from that," he said. Cain has spent the last several days explaining a controversial comment about building an electrified fence along the U.S. - Mexico border that he said could kill people trying to enter the country illegally. On Sunday, he said his comments were "a joke." But talking to reporters here after a meeting here with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio,...

    The Inter-Press Sevice (IPS) is reporting that the head administrator of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, has confirmed that his government is building a wall in the state of Chiapas, along the Mexican/Guatemalan border. The official reason is to stop contraband from coming into Mexico, but as Diaz admitted: “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.” According to Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights, 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year. Just as Mexican authorities have opposed the construction of a fence by the U.S., along our border with their...

    Angry that six years of lobbying effort aimed at an immigration reform that would allow millions to cross into the United States legally, the Mexican government sent a diplomatic note to Washington criticizing the plan for 700 miles of new fencing along the border. Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez called it an “offense” and said his office was considering suing the United States. “We have an easement right to enter the United States,” Derbez said. “We will sue!” An easement is the right of use over the real property of another. Another term for easement is equitable servitude. The right...
  • Mexico Criticizes Plan for Border Fence

    MEXICO CITY — Mexico sent a diplomatic note to the U.S. government on Monday saying a plan to build hundreds of miles of fencing on their common border would damage relations. President-elect Felipe Calderon urged U.S. officials to reconsider the plan, saying one "could stop more migrants with a kilometer of new roads and development (in Mexico) than with a wall." In the letter to the U.S. State Department, Mexico's Foreign Relations Department said only comprehensive reform could stem the tide of illegal immigrants heading north in search of work. "The diplomatic note explains that the construction of this barrier...

    Mexico seeks allies against border wall Wire services El Universal December 29, 2005 Top officials from Mexico and Central America are planning to meet on Jan. 9 to formulate a plan in response to an anti-immigrant bill approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. The U.S. congressional initiative, which still must be approved by the Senate, proposes walling off the U.S.-Mexico border in its entirety to curb illegal immigration. Mexico has since been looking for Latin American allies for support against the measure. "We are coordinating a meeting for Jan. 9, which was originally planned before the end of the...

    Researchers have confirmed that the Mayan pyramid excavated at the Acropolis of Toniná, Chiapas is one the largest pyramids ever discovered. Discovered in 2010, Emiliano Gallaga and his team began their excavation under the impression that the pyramid was built on the top of a hill. It was not until recently that they’ve managed to fully assess it and truly see what they’re working with. Wighing in at 75-meters tall with seven distinct districts all with their own purpose – such as Temples, palaces, markets, housing, administration – the magnitude of the Toniná pyramid compares even to that of the...

    The ruins of a 16th century colonial church have re-emerged from a reservoir due to the lack of rain in the southern Mexican state of Chiapas. This year's drought has gripped the Grijalba river, which feeds the Nezahualcoyotl reservoir, dropping the water level by 75 feet. It is the second time the church has emerged from underwater. In 2002, the water was so low visitors could walk inside the church. The church, in the Quechula locality, is the work of a group of monks headed by Friar Bartolome de la Casas, who arrived in the region inhabited by the Zoque...
  • Mexican Narcoterrorist Region May Abandon Catholicism for Islam

    Mexican Narcoterrorist Region May Abandon Catholicism for Islam It would seem as if Bishop Ruiz’s brand of Liberation Theology has had the same effect on Chiapas as on Europe. Chiapas is poor, but it’s now also appearing to trend Islamic as any region under the influence of the left eventually does. When you kill the local religion and replace it with social justice, foreign religions eventually take its place. In the mid-1990s, a leftist resistance group which calls itself The Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) made Chiapas its home. Its attempts to fight the Mexican Army repeatedly failed, but...

"In an age where it sometimes seems like there's nothing left to discover, our site is for people who still believe in exploration," says cofounder Joshua Foer. Our definition of mysterious is broad and varied. Some buildings on our list are being eaten alive by the earth, such as a lava-buried church in the...
