    In September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin construction on President Trump’s infamous 130-mile wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. At times like these, the symbolism of barriers hits hard. It’s no surprise that on Saturday, attendees at Chicago’s Ruido Fest – a rock en espańol festival in the city’s Pilsen neighborhood – decided to stage a protest against a Home Depot branded booth that featured a mock wall installation. The activity invited festivalgoers to decorate tiles and glue them onto the wall as artists played sets across the grounds. In addition to the symbolism of the installation, protesters expressed...

    The National Council of La Raza announced that it will change its name to UnidosUs, AP reports. President Janet Murguia described “La Raza” as an outdated term that did not resonate with its members. AP exclusively translates “Raza” as “the people” in its report. However, the term can also be interpreted as “the race,” which carries a suggestion of zero-sum ethnic conflict. According to the AP: The National Council of La Rafa announced that it will change its name to UnidosUs, AP reports.

    The College Fix ^ | May 10, 2017 | by Greg Piper
    It wasn’t a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicago’s Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the “bias incident” of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been “under renovation and construction for two years.” But activists don’t care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJI’s members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - at 12:15pm today President Trump disclosed that he has reached an agreement with Enrique Pena Nieto, President of Mexico, which provides for the sale of substantially all of the State of California to the country of Mexico. President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims "is his largest real estate deal ever" is a win-win for everyone involved. One of the benefits he says he will highlight during a prime time address from the oval office later this evening, will include using the proceeds received by the US from Mexico to 1) pay for the Wall...

    In a previous installment I mentioned France's recent war on blogs and the internet. France along with Germany are demanding that American based ISP and Blog services censor content that might be deemed offensive to Muslims. They threatened crackdowns if it was not complied. Since last summer we have received record viewership from France.  We did not know whether to attribute it to French Catholic viewership for our posts of videos and articles by Michael Voris Of Church Militant TV and other Catholic channels or if it was warning of an impending attack by the French Government and or perhaps...

Just before noon, Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos walked into the regional ICE office for a check-in, but instead of a regular check-in, she was issued an order of deportation. ~~clip~~ "She was convicted of...

    As I recall from Gibbon, the Western Roman Empire went out with more of a whimper than a bang. By the time of Alaric and his Visigoths in 410 AD, Rome was so corrupt and weak there was little to stand in his way. In broad strokes it is fair to say that Roman society declined simultaneously with government. Long before the fall, Roman republican citizenship was a precious possession, a jewel of unsurpassed value. As such it was held closely and kept in short supply, for among other privileges, the Roman citizen wasn’t taxed. He was exempt from the...
  • CANADA TO LIFT VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR MEXICO

    Ottawa, Ontario 28 June 2016 The Government of Canada has made it a top priority to re-establish and strengthen our relationship with one of our most important partners, Mexico. To this end, Prime Minister Trudeau today announced Canada’s intention to lift the visa requirement for Mexican visitors to Canada beginning December 1, 2016. Lifting the visa requirement will deepen ties between Canada and Mexico and will increase the flow of travellers, ideas, and businesses between both countries. Closer collaboration between Canada and Mexico on mobility issues will also help encourage travel between the two countries while preventing any increase in...

    Article from 2006: The nation’s television screens many days recently have been filled with scenes of huge crowds carrying the colorful green and red flag of Mexico viewers could well have thought it was a national holiday in Mexico City. It was instead, downtown Los Angeles, Calif., although the scene was recreated in numerous other cities around the country with substantial Mexican populations. Hordes of Mexican expatriates, many here illegally, were protesting the very U.S. immigration laws they were violating with impunity. They found it offensive and a violation of their rights that the U.S. dared to have immigration laws...

    While much of the country displayed their solidarity with Mexican people by wearing their biggest sombreros for Cinco de Drinko, a Chicano has made the best hat yet. A young Chicano from East L.A. decided to mix satire and a little bit of creativity by mocking Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan and creating red caps reading "Make America Mexico Again." His latest activist-wear didn't receive much backlash as expected, but hundreds of order requests.

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...

    Donald Trump, the orange spray-tanned Republican presidential candidate, kicked off his California primary campaign yesterday at the Orange County Fairgrounds. Costa Mesa's Pacific Amphitheater seemed like the perfect venue in a county that's right-wing as hell, no? The city, no stranger to anti-immigrant policy at the local level, had to be a good fit for Trump's "build that wall," Mexi-hating mantra, right? Wrong! Waves of protests rolled out the unwelcome mat for the Donald blocking freeway entrances, taking over an intersection, vandalizing property all while bumping YG and Nipsey Hussle's "FDT (F### Donald Trump)" throughout the day. At the onset,...

    Speaking outside a Donald Trump rally in Fort Worth, Texas on Friday, a Hispanic demonstrator warned the GOP candidate’s white supporters that there would be consequences if Trump manages to make it all the way to the White House. “If these people get what they want, Trump in there, I guarantee you — you think the Mexicans are going to lay down that easily? We don’t ever say nothing,” Ronald Gonzales, of Dallas, said. After explaining that he isn’t an advocate for open borders, he argued that many of the illegal immigrants living in the U.S. “already got families and...

    BOSTON (CBS) – In a predawn raid, 37 of 56 alleged members of the MS-13 gang were rounded up in Boston and surrounding communities, indicted on charges related to murder, conspiracy to commit murder and drug trafficking. The gang’s core mantra translated into English is “kill, rape, control.” Under the gang’s strict rules prospective members are required to engage in “significant violent criminal activity,” according to U.S. attorney Carmen Ortiz.
