Mexico’s Efforts To Influence America’s Political Future

Sounds to me like Mexico has all but declared war on us – complete with threats and subterfuge from Mexico’s Government itself in interfering with American law and policy in regards to enabling millions of lawbreaking squatters enclaving in this country.

One of the factors that contributed to our entry into WWI was a letter from Germany to Mexico, asking them to infilitrate the United States and retake Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California if we entered WWI on the side of Great Britain.

At one time that was considered a contributing factor towards war.

Now we call it “humanity” and “Doing jobs Americans won’t do”

Government, advocates are calling for measures to influence U.S. public opinion.

MEXICO CITY — Anger in Mexico is growing in the wake of a number of new state laws in the United States considered by critics to be anti-Mexican, a shift probably reflected in President Felipe Calderón’s verbal lashing this week of U.S. presidential candidates.

In tougher rhetoric toward U.S. immigration policies, Calderón scolded presidential candidates for using migrants as thematic hostages and announced a media campaign aimed at influencing American public opinion.

The Calderón administration this week also blasted the U.S.-backed border wall, releasing a study labeling it medieval and an environmental risk, and calling on the U.S. Congress to reconsider the idea.

Mexico, which often reacts with anger to even a hint of U.S. meddling in its internal affairs, has been loath to comment so directly on internal U.S. politics in recent years.

“Every day, there is more demand for the Mexican government to take a stronger position,” said Manuel Angel Castillo, coordinator of the Migration Seminary at the College of Mexico. “The immigration reform generated a lot of expectation, but as we all know, that didn’t happen. Instead they approved a series of undesirable actions, and all these things are now creating a lot of irritation.”

At an immigrant advocates’ conference this week in Mexico City, attendees cited some 170 anti-immigrant measures adopted by local and state governments in the U.S. Many said the time had come to confront what is increasingly seen as a rising tide of xenophobia.

“Just the idea that our children will live in … humiliation is something we cannot allow,” said Alonso Flores, member of the Institute of Mexicans in the Exterior, a Mexican government agency that fosters ties with Mexicans living abroad.

Hey I got an idea – why don’t you third world Socialists worry about the cesspool of corruption and humiliation you force upon your own citizens instead of worrying about demanding rights for your Insurgency here in OUR country?????

Calderón, in a speech to the conference, said a new media campaign would change the distorted perceptions Americans have about Mexican workers and build consciousness of the “many contributions they make for the society in which they work and live.”

Experts in Mexico say it’s too early to tell whether Calderón’s comments signal a change in how the Mexican government deals with American politics.

“In the coming weeks and months, we will see if (Calderón’s) declarations form part of a new strategy,” said Luis Escala, a researcher at the Tijuana-based College of the Northern Border.

But Calderón does appear to be taking a more active role in the fate of immigrants than past presidents, analysts say.

He favors the creation of a kind of anti-defamation league for Mexican immigrants in the United States and has supported the idea of building support centers along the border for deported Mexicans. Such centers would offer food, clothing and shelter for deportees.

Advocates also are pushing for a program to help deportees transition back to life in their homeland.

Escala said the timing of Calderón’s remarks and the struggle to fight back against perceived anti-immigration attacks is not by chance.

“The engines of the presidential campaign are starting,” he said. “And they are wanting to have an influence.”

I think we need to help influence Illegal Mexicans to influence their own native country and return there to fix their own corrupt politics and cesspool.

Just one more reason to seal the border and declare a moratorium on ALL IMMIGRATION until a new and thorough system can be devised and instituted.

But that cannot happen when Americans have bought into the moral relativism and multicultural crap that helps create the notion that borders and national sovereignty are racist and that we are no better or worse than the third world.

As a result, America is on the road to becomming a third world nation.

Banning Roadside Memorials – Can Arlington National Cemetery Be Far Behind?


The Secularists never stop, and it’s a battle they will wage until all public view of God is removed from society.

The question remains, will Christians just let them without a fight?

Well, not in Utah, thank the Lord.

Families of Fallen Utah Highway Patrol Troopers Fight Atheist Group Over Roadside Cross Memorials

If a national atheist organization has its way, a series of 12-foot-tall memorial crosses that adorn Utah’s highways will be taken down.

But not if the families of the people those crosses honor — state Highway Patrol troopers killed in the line of duty — have anything to say about it.

American Atheists Inc. has filed a federal lawsuit, arguing that the 13 white, steel crosses represent the death of Jesus Christ and therefore violate the First Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibits government establishment of religion.

But the families of the fallen heroes say otherwise. They say the crosses, which bear the names and badge numbers of the troopers, were built strictly as memorials.

…”I think it’s ridiculous that a small group of offended atheists would seek to stop the family of slain troopers from honoring their loved ones as they see fit,” said Byron Babione, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, which represents the Utah Highway Patrol Association.

The New Jersey-based American Atheists filed suit in 2005, arguing that the crosses symbolize Christianity and break state and federal laws against roadside memorials.

Isn’t it amazing how an Atheist Org out of New Jersey thinks it needs to meddle in the affairs of those citizens in Utah??

I’m sure that scouring the land there in Utah – they were able to find ONE SHMOE who was willing to complain so the full weight of Northeastern Scularists can be brought to bear on memorials in Utah.

“They know very well that the cross is a Christian symbol,” said Dave Silverman, spokesman for the group. “They are breaking the law by putting up memorials for fallen heroes.”

The Utah Highway Patrol Association, a private organization, designed and constructed the memorials with private funding in 1998. Private citizens can memorialize troopers who died in the line of duty, under Utah state law, Babione said.

“There’s nothing unconstitutional here because the memorials cost taxpayers nothing,” he said.

But Brian Barnard, a lawyer representing American Atheists, said the memorial is a Roman cross, which symbolizes Christianity.

“The use of those crosses constitutes and endorses Christianity,” Barnard said. “Although it’s an acknowledgement of the death of these troopers, it is also an endorsement of Christianity.”

Barnard said the highway association downplays the significance of the cross, claiming it is a secular symbol.

I think it does not help to give the Secularists ammo and make statements like that which will turn the argument into whether a cross is a Christian symbol or not. Everyone is aware that the cross symbolizes both faith and death as a marker. I think it would serve their interests better to simply say that it is indeed a cross – that is universally recognized as a memorial symbol that has both religious and cultural significance. Argue the point over whether having a memorial to fallen officers is an establishment of a state-run church rather than arguing over whether the cross is religious or not.

“There’s no question at all that these highway patrol troopers should be honored,” Barnard said. “We should all pause and thank them. But that can be done in a way that does not emphasize religion.”

The group is seeking the removal of the crosses and one dollar in monetary damages.

U.S. District Judge David Sam recently heard arguments in the case and will rule soon on the legality of the crosses.

If the secularists succeed in getting the Courts to ban these memorials, it will be a giant step in the high prize of getting rid of all the white cross memorials in our National Cemeteries.
