Mexico’s ex-president advocates law reform

Don Mecoy

Oklahoma and other states have launched immigration legislation because Congress has failed to act, former Mexico President Vicente Fox said Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

Fox, speaking at the Civic Center Music Hall, said the United States must develop a sensible national immigration policy.

“At the very end, it’s a federal issue so in the end it should be satisfied by the federal government, by the U.S. Congress,” Fox said. “Immigration is an asset to every nation. It’s an asset to the United States, no doubt. What we need to do is take advantage of that asset by bringing order to it, and by bringing legality to it.”

Oklahoma lawmakers last year adopted HB 1804, which has been called the toughest immigration statute in the nation.

Fox, 65, president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, spoke at an Executive Management Briefing sponsored by Oklahoma State University’s William S. Spears School of Business. Fox, before his political career, was head of Coca-Cola Latin America.

Fox said he favors a plan similar to a bill authored by Sens. John McCain and Ted Kennedy in 2005 that would have provided a path to legal citizenship for many of the millions of illegal immigrants in the United States. The bill, which never came to a floor vote, also would have provided funding for increased border security.

A reasonable temporary guest worker program would solve many problems by providing documented foreign workers who need good wages for the American economy, Fox said. Fox said most Mexican immigrants don’t want to become American citizens; they want to help their family and then return to their homeland.

“They like better tacos, tortillas and chilies than hot dogs or hamburgers,” he said.

The United States should join its economic might with its neighbors, Mexico and Canada, to meet the challenges of the world marketplace, Fox said.

“This century will be the century of Latin America,” said Fox, who noted that Mexico’s economy is forecast to be the world’s fifth-largest by 2040.

About a dozen protesters from Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise demonstrated outside the Civic Center to voice their opposition to a closer economic relationship between the United States and Mexico.

“I don’t want a North American union established,” protester Robert Forrester said. “That’s why I’m here.”

Fox, whose American-born grandfather emigrated from Ohio to Mexico to find his “American dream,” said only dictatorial governments build structures to keep people in or out such as the wall that has been proposed to control illegal immigration along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I’m totally opposed to building a wall. That’s the worst of the answers to a problem that has to be dealt with among different nations,” Fox said. “The threat to the United States is not immigration. … The threat to the United States is isolation by building a wall.”

Fox suggested support for building a wall to stop illegal immigration might arise from “understandable” fears born in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“I am not for disorder. I am not for walls,” he said. “I am for wisdom.”

In response to questions from the audience of about 500, Fox prompted applause when he said that the United States should withdraw its troops from Iraq “as soon as possible.” Fox opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

Fox, an admitted fan of President Bush, said the next U.S. president will have to rebuild relationships among nations.

“The United States has lost, I’m sorry to say, a lot of respect,” he said.

He also drew laughter and applause when, responding to a hypothetical question about northern Mexico states possibly joining the United States, he suggested that his country instead might re-annex Texas.

By Sam Logan and M Casey McCarty

· Due to increased pressure from the Calderón administration, some members of Mexican organized crime may begin crossing the border in significant numbers to set up US-based operations.

Dozens of murders have resulted from battles between the Mexican security forces and armed criminals along the US-Mexico border since the beginning of this year. It is a spike in violence that has many in the US worried that gunfights may spill across the border, carrying all the reprisals that left a string of Mexican border towns without journalists, mayors, police chiefs and musicians in 2007.

In another bloody encounter for what has already been a violent year, on 7 January a van full of gunmen ran a roadblock outside the border town of Reynosa, Mexico. Mexican soldiers and federal police chased the van to a small house across the street from the Reynosa police station. The gun battle began soon after. In the aftermath, ten suspects were arrested and five policemen were dead. Along with the suspects, Mexican police seized three automatic rifles, an Uzi submachine gun, grenades and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

The US Border Patrol has not taken any extra precautions, but is keeping its agents in the field “abreast of the situation,” according to Border Patrol spokesman Oscar Saldana, who recently spoke with ISN Security Watch.

“We’re advising everyone to be on the alert and be extra cautious because of the situation on the Mexican side,” he said.

Others, however, argue that more action must be taken to prevent the establishment of a significant presence of Mexican organized criminals inside the US. However, preparations on the US side of the border are directly linked to a lack of resources from the federal and state levels.

“What has been appropriated is likely spent,” Kent Lundgren, chairman of the National Former Border Patrol Organization, told ISN Security Watch in a recent telephone interview.

And what may come from the federal government in the future will almost certainly be delayed by the US presidential elections.

When the lives of officers are at stake, Lundgren said, law enforcement must prepare for the worst case scenario, which could be the possibility that a small group of armed men could cross the border and encounter a patrol cruiser. The resulting firefight would be no contest. The heavily armed Mexican criminals would easily overcome one or two Border Patrol agents most likely armed with only pistols.

“We have seen no indication that law enforcement in South Texas is prepared for the worse case in this matter,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Mexican government has shifted its posture from reactive to proactive. No longer interested in waiting for Mexican organized crime to strike before responding, Mexican President Felipe Calderón wants to hunt them down, starting with Los Zetas in the northeastern Mexican border state of Tamaulipas.

Los Zetas

Commonly known as the enforcement branch of a top tier Mexican drug trafficking organization (DTO) known as the Gulf Cartel, the founding members of this elite group of hit men are former Mexican soldiers who, once trained, left the rank and file to earn money protecting the black market economy.

During their tenure as a paramilitary force overseeing the transshipment of multiple tons of cocaine across the border into the US, Los Zetas was then given orders and controlled by Osiel Cardenas-Guillen, the former head of the Gulf Cartel now awaiting trial in the US.

The extradition of Cardenas in January 2007 caused a rift in his organization’s structure, removing the one power that had been able to contain Los Zetas and solidifying its status as the real power at the border.

Both before and after this change in leadership, the brazen nature of their attacks could be easily discerned from the day-to-day violence in Mexico. Some corpses left in the wake of a hit had the letter “Z” carved into their backs; standoffs in broad daylight against rival DTOs, police and/or military included hi-tech weaponry such as machine guns and RPGs. Newspapers refer to them as narco-soldiers due to their past military training. Their tactics are smooth and confident and their movements organized.

Los Zetas has seen their status exalted from that of hired goons to full-fledged gatekeepers. And the group is now likely a drug trafficking organization itself, having taken over the Gulf Cartel in a slow but steady process during 2007.

Formerly reserved for members of an elite enforcement unit, the term Zeta has begun to encompass members of the antiquated Gulf DTO, rendering the Gulf Cartel to little more than a name, with Los Zetas running the day-to-day operations from a ground-based standpoint.

Their numbers have been reported in the hundreds, but for Calderón there are now only two that matter. The reputed second in command of Los Zetas, Miguel Treviño Morales, is said to be running Nuevo Laredo’s daily operations, while Heriberto “El Verdugo” Lazcano (The Executioner) is said to be moving between Gulf-controlled cities in Tamaulipas to remain out of site.

It was reported that Lazcano was shot to death in October 2007, but he is now believed to be in the Gulf-controlled state of Tamaulipas, possibly the city of Tampico, the same seaside city where authorities seized 11 tons of cocaine in October 2007.

Manhunt

Rather than back off and acquiesce to the din of cries over human rights and increased violence in the wake of a bloody year, Calderón has stepped up the pressure on Los Zetas. He has focused on the state of Tamaulipas on the US-Mexico border where the group has the strongest presence, and where he can apply high pressure.

Considering that the Gulf Cartel’s headquarters is likely in the town of Rio Bravo, between McAllen and Brownsville, Texas, and that many of Los Zetas’ members are still in the state, the first step of Calderón’s operation was to use soldiers to make a literal cordon around the state.

With the Gulf of Mexico to the east and the US-Mexico border to the north, Calderón has focused on blocking the main roads in Tamaulipas that lead from the neighboring state of Nuevo Leon into the state of Coahuila with the help of some 2,300 Mexican soldiers, according to Patricio Patiño Arias, the deputy minister for intelligence and strategy at Mexico’s Ministry of Public Security.

The deputy minister acknowledges that their fight with Los Zetas has reached a new level of importance since the start of the New Year. Now it is a manhunt, and they are after Lazcano and Treviño, the latter believed to control the lucrative route from Monterrey to Nuevo Laredo, across the border from Laredo, Texas: one of the most hotly contested border crossings in all of Mexico.

Patiño Arias told reporters days after the 7 January shootout in Reynosa that the new strategy was “no longer just patrolling” but was now a direct fight “against specific objects, against specific targets that has grown out of important intelligence work.”

Holding the border

But will the border hold? This is a question not so much asked in Washington as in small towns and cities in southern Texas where locals read every day about violent shootouts occurring less than 16 kilometers away across a border that anyone can simply traverse on foot in many areas.

Blocked from escape in any direction but north, leaders and other members of Los Zetas could cross the border into the US as Calderón turns up the pressure in Tamaulipas. If Los Zetas begins running its smuggling operations from inside the US, law enforcement in small Texas towns across the border could be saddled with a serious security threat. But beyond the border, in cities such as Dallas and Houston, law enforcement will also likely feel the brunt of organized crime.

The ten gunmen arrested after the recent Reynosa shootout are all suspected members of Los Zetas, men who report to Treviño. Three of them have US citizenship, suggesting closer ties to the US, specifically Texas, than some may be willing to admit.

Limited resources

Sheriffs of border counties from El Paso to Brownsville, as well as members of the Texas Border Sheriffs Association, have come together to help one another along the Texas-Mexico border in an atmosphere where funds from the federal level are lacking.

“I could use another 50 officers,” Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio told ISN Security Watch, adding, “I have 1,267 square miles to cover. It’s an area larger than the state of Rhode Island.”

Lundgren, of the National Former Border Patrol Organization, believes that no local sheriff or lawman in Texas has the resources or the training necessary for the task. “We believe that in a limited set of circumstances there ought to be military resources on the border that can respond immediately when somebody is in over his head in what is essentially a large-scale firefight,” he said.

“There’s no reason why two border patrolmen or a sheriff’s deputy or anybody else should have to stand there and die just because we’re not prepared to send the troops over to take care of the bad guys in the way it should be done.”

My Teachers’ Lies

A Mexican describes the Mexican mind.

It is very unusual to find a Latin American author who does not blame his country’s ills squarely on the United States. This is especially true of Mexicans, who are all taught in school that the United States invaded and dismembered their country in 1846-1848 and has ruthlessly exploited Mexico ever since. Most Mexicans cannot conceive of the wealth and power of the United States — and their own poverty and weakness — as anything but proof of American wickedness.

Monument to the revolution, Mexico City.

Luis Gonzalez de Alba is that rare Mexican who is able to see his country as it really is. In this short 1997 essay, My Teachers’ Lies, he brilliantly captures the delusions and contra-dictions of the Mexican national character.

Don Luis was born on March 6, 1944, in Char-cas, a small desert village in the state of San Luis Potosi. He came to Mexico City in the 1960s to study psychology at Mexico’s leading university, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, and was a leader in the student movement. The government arrested him in the wake of the Oct. 2, 1968, massacre of students and workers, and he spent two years and eight months in prison.

Don Luis has written novels and plays, but has achieved greatest success as a science writer. Needless to say, his political writing is controversial; this essay originally appeared in a now-defunct magazine called Tendencias, which was published in El Salvador. In 2002, he expanded on the ideas in this essay, and published a book of the same title, My Teachers’ Lies. Neither the essay nor the book was translated into English.

The true history of Mexico is a long series of glorious defeats and a weighty directory of fallen heroes.

Don Luis’s refusal to accept the distortions of the political, academic, and media elites is grounded in a thorough understanding of Mexican history, and he refers to people and events with which Americans are not familiar. It may seem distracting to go back and forth between the footnotes (page 4) and the essay, but most Americans will find the notes necessary. In any case, Americans would be well advised to learn the history of a country that is clearly determined to play an ever-larger role in our affairs.

My Teachers’ Lies

The Demolition of Myths

The Vision of the Vanquished

The true history of Mexico is a long series of glorious defeats and a weighty directory of fallen heroes. Cuauhtemoc1 is our purest hero, but not for his deeds, nor his nation-building, nor his victories, since he did not have time for such things, but only because he is the great loser. Hidalgo2 is the Pater Patriae [father of his country] by decree, not for his achievements. Morelos3 headed another uprising that was scarcely noted in our immense expanse of territory, and his defeat was absolute. Guerrero4 turned into a simple fugitive lost in the mountains of the south, where he could have stayed to die a natural death from old age, since in no way did he affect the course of the Spanish Empire. Madero5 never governed, and we continue to wait for a workable government. Zapata6 was shot down, and land reform had to wait until Cardenas7 and even longer — enough time for the growth of the population to make it impossible to give land to each peasant, and distribution created more problems than benefits.

The Perfidious Victors

The accursed victors are deep within our official hell. The greatest villain is the absolute victor, the man who made possible the Mexico of today, a country that was possible only upon the ruins of the indigenous nations, not one of them remotely Mexican. Hernan Cortes is the Father of Mexico8 because without his victory, the present population of Mexico would not exist. However, we choose to define ourselves as the conquered — the vanquished — in absolute denial of the father, the Spaniard and conqueror who triumphed because of so much evil.

The Process of Identification

Mexican social psychology has an unusual research theme in our identification with the vanquished and not the victorious, although we are sons of both. We say that “they,” the Spaniards, defeated “us.” But do we not have eyes of all colors and complexions of all shades? Do we not name ourselves Carlos, Miguel, Antonio, Maria, Carmen? Our surnames are Gonzalez, Lopez, Aguilar, Toledo, Segovia. The idyllic and silly image we have of the Aztec Empire we imagine to ourselves in Spanish, and when we insult Spain, we do it in Spanish. This is a country greatly in need of psychoanalysis, where in spite of so much nativism, the Indians cannot stage an uprising without some White Man brandishing a camera at them.

A Tale Told Backwards

If this country had been conquered by the 300 Spaniards of Cortes with ten starving horses and some ancient blunderbusses, it ought to make us ashamed just to talk about it. The “Conquest” was the result of indigenous hatred of the barbaric savagery of the Aztecs. The fall of Tenochtitlan9 was the result of a massive popular revolt. Independent for just a hundred years in 1521, the Aztecs had oppressed their subject nations with extremes of savagery never reached by the Nazis. The schoolboy version that “Mexico was conquered by a foreign power” is childish, ridiculous, and damaging in the first place to the Indian Nations. If 300 Spaniards really had conquered a city that had a population of half a million in the midst of a territory with a population of 20 million, truly they would have been Gods. However, 1) Mexico could not be conquered because it did not exist. 2) Spain was nothing more than a small country recently freed from a thousand years of Arab domination. 3) It was not only Spaniards, but also thousands of Native warriors who, oppressed by the reign of Aztec terror, took Tenochitlan and razed it with all the hatred and fury imaginable.

The Childish Sickness of the Mexican

We are a childish nation that always tries to blame outsiders: “The Spaniards conquered us,” say the children of blue, green, and chestnut eyes, whose names are Fernando and surnamed Cortes. We learn to degrade ourselves, and self-pity sickens us with sympathy for ourselves. We are full of willfulness, a quality that entitles us to everything, and if we do not get it, it is because of foreign evildoers: the Americans robbed us of the Northern Territories, the bad Mestizos get the good Indians drunk, and the Indians forget their values. We explain our poverty as the result of the imperialism of the United States, which has opened the veins of Latin America.10 But we never ask ourselves why we are not the imperialistic country and the United States a poor country with open veins. Or we claim we are poor because our politicians are swindlers and sluggards, but we do not observe that our governments spring from ourselves.

When We Grow Up

The Virgin of Guadalupe: not a
patroness of soccer champions.

To become adults we need two treatments for two failings that are, in themselves, a paradox: excessive humility and overbearing arrogance. First, we must not picture ourselves as the humbled product of a defeat. Second, we must not believe ourselves to be the favorite son of a heavenly mother who solves all. We are poor because of our mistakes, our history of violence and destruction, and because of our Catholic disdain of science, which is the basis of industry.11 Likewise, we do not win Olympic medals or soccer championships,12 first of all, because of the Virgin. If she wanted us to win we would emerge winners in everything, wouldn’t we? The second reason we are not winners is because we are a nation of potbellies for whom sport is a Sunday television program watched between beers and rich slices of barbecued pork. However, no taxi-driver would ever explain it this way. We lose because of bad luck or the bad faith of others.

Will God Speak Through the Aryan Race?

Cuauhtemoc, the unsullied hero.

The feminists have taught us to change the gender of a phrase to discover the masculine sexism hidden in everyday matters. Let us try the same thing with our vociferous racialism: “Will God speak through the Aryan race?”13 Let us suppose that was the motto of Heidelberg University. Would demonstrators not be applauded if they splashed paint on it? Or the mountain-climber who scaled the rectory tower to obliterate that declaration with a hammer? A monument to the German race, to the Aryan essence of Germany, would it not suffer every conceivable attempt to wipe it out? But what is dignity in the poor is abusive arrogance in the rich. Deutschland Uber Alles seems racialist to us, but “There are not two like Mexico”14 is only simple national pride. It is true, certainly, but a platitude, because the same applies to Guatemala or Nigeria, and it lends itself also to the type of joke that backfires: there are not two — fortunately.

Notes

1 Cuauthemoc (1495–1525) was the last of the Aztec emperors. He defended the Aztec capital against the conquistadors in 1521, and after his defeat and capture, he reluctantly went into Spanish service. In 1525, Cortes tried him for treason and had him executed, even though many Spaniards considered him innocent. He is said to have died defiantly, and is considered Mexico’s greatest hero.

2 Miguel Hidalgo (1753–1811) was a priest whose campaigns against Spain launched the independence movement. In 1810, he started a revolt in the hope of improving conditions for Indians, and marched on Mexico City with an army of 80,000. After winning an initial battle he was defeated by the Spanish, fled north, was captured and shot. Sept. 16, the day on which Hidalgo called for insurrection, is a national holiday, Mexican Independence Day. It is in this sense that Hidalgo is the father of his country by decree, and not by achievement.

3 Jose Maria Morelos (1765-1815), also a priest, joined Hidalgo’s insurrection and succeeded him as leader of the rebels. He was initially successful, and issued a declaration of independence from Spain in 1813. Two years later, royalists defeated and shot him. Like Hidalgo, he is a hero of the early struggle for independence.

4 Vicente Guerrero (1783? — 1831) was a Mexican soldier who joined the war for independence in 1810 under Morelos, and became leader of guerrilla forces. He served briefly as president of Mexico in 1829 but was overthrown in a revolt, and was shot in 1831.

5 Francisco Madero (1873-1913) was the original leader of the Mexican Revolution of 1910 to 1920. The revolution against seven-term president and dictator, Porfirio Diaz, was ostensibly for land redistribution. It led to a confused and violent period during which local power was in the hands of warlords and guerilla bands. Madero managed to make himself president from 1911 to 1913, but was overthrown and shot. He is nevertheless a great hero, and Mexico celebrates Revolution Day every Nov. 20, the day in 1910 on which Madero denounced President Diaz, declared himself president of Mexico, and called for insurrection.

6 Emiliano Zapata (1877? — 1919) was another hero of the Mexican Revolution, but was an enemy of Madero, whom he thought not radical enough. Of peasant origin, he controlled the state of Morales, where he drove the wealthy off their estates, and divided the land among peasants. Another great hero, he was assassinated in 1919.

Although Don Luis does not mention him, Pancho Villa (1878–1923) is a somewhat more ambiguous “hero” of the revolution. Born Doroteo Arangol to a peasant family, he joined a bandit gang as a teenager, and adopted the name of the gang chieftain after police killed him in a shootout. In 1910, he joined Madero’s rebellion and operated in the north. After Madero was shot, he quarreled with other revolutionaries, and fled north, where he continued as a bandit and guerilla fighter. In 1916, he and his men attacked Columbus, New Mexico, murdering townspeople and burning most of the town. General John Pershing led an expeditionary force into Mexico and pursued him for 11 months, but could not catch him. Villa knew the terrain and was popular with the Mexicans, who refused to help Pershing despite a $5,000 reward on Villa’s head. This greatly adds to his sheen in Mexico today, but his popularity could not protect him from other Mexicans. He was assassinated in 1923, and some peasants pray to him as if he were a saint.

7 Lazaro Cardenas (1895-1970) was another anti-Diaz revolutionary, who managed to avoid being shot, and served as president from 1934-1940. He initiated serious land reform and nationalized the oil industry. His was perhaps the first honest, reasonably successful attempt to uplift the whole country. He did not loot the treasury, and lived a notably austere life.

8 Hernan Cortes (1485–1547) conquered Mexico during the famous campaign of 1519–1521. He is “the father of Mexico” because of his affair with La Malinche, an Aztec noblewoman who was his interpreter and consort. Cortes could have had many women, but was faithful to La Malinche during the campaign, and had a son, who is celebrated as the first “Mexican.” Although, as Don Luis points out, Cortes is not a hero to the Mexicans, Columbus is. Mexico celebrates October 12 — the origins of the mestizo — as Dia de la Raza or “day of the race.”

9 Tenochtitlan was the name of the Aztec capital conquered by Cortes, and was the precursor of today’s Mexico City.

11 One Mexican won a Nobel prize for literature, and another shared a peace prize. No Mexican has won a prize in science. Neighboring Guatemala, with only one ninth the population, has won one Nobel prize for literature and one for peace, both unshared.

12 Mexico has a population of 100 million, which is more than reunited Germany (82 million), France, or England (both 60 million), but it won only one silver and three bronze medals at the 2004 Olympics. Soccer is the national pastime, but Mexico has never won the World Cup.

13 Don Luis has taken the motto of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, “Will God Speak Through My Race?” and changed it to “Will God Speak Through the Aryan Race?” He credits this type of analysis to feminists, who claim that language is riddled with “sexism.” An example would be to point out that the masculine often stands for both sexes, as in “Every student should raise his hand.”

14 “There are not two like Mexico” (Como Mexico no hay dos) is a slogan the government used to promote tourism. It did not work very well, and instead became the butt of jokes of the kind Don Luis cites.

Mexico could teach the U.S. a few things about border enforcement

By Guy W. Farmer

National Geographic is just about the last place I’d look for information about the illegal immigration crisis in our country. But the February issue of that prestigious magazine publishes a fascinating article about life along Mexico’s southern border, and the callous methods the Mexican government employs to deal with illegal immigrants.

Every time I hear Mexican officials complain about how we allegedly mistreat illegals, I think of how they deal with “undocumented” people who sneak into their country from neighboring Guatemala and the rest of Central America. When I visited Mexico about two years ago their immigration officials were boasting about how many illegal aliens they had deported. Good for them, I thought, that’s how all countries should handle the worldwide problem of illegal immigration.

National Geographic describes Mexico’s problem this way: “For many immigrants heading north, the first dangerous crossing is not the one into the U.S. It’s Southern Mexico, where the peril begins,” writes magazine journalist Cynthia Gorney. “Sneaking into Mexico is as easy as rafting across the Suchiate River … to Ciudad Hidalgo (Mexico). But on the other side migrants face ruthless bandits and officials demanding bribes.”

Ms. Gorney reveals that more than 400,000 Central Americans attempt the illegal crossing into southern Mexico each year, and that at least 150,000 of them are bound for the U.S. “It’s at the Southern Mexico border where the perils begin – the thugs, the drug runners, the extortionists in official uniforms, the police and migration agents who pack undocumented migrants into detention facilities before forcing them onto buses to be deported,” writes Ms. Gorney. And Mexico complains about U.S. border enforcement.

Tapachula, a border city of 270,000, is a gateway for Central Americans bound for Mexico and/or the U.S., but illegal immigrants bring many problems with them. Ms. Gorney interviews a Mexican shop owner in Tapachula who opposes illegal immigration on grounds that Guatemalans are “too servile,” Hondurans too “gang-inclined” and Salvadorans “too hotheaded.”

“When Mexicans talk about undocumented migrants in their midst, they sound like Americans: Resentful, sympathetic, patronizing (and) perplexed,” Ms. Gorney observes. Simply put, a double standard urges us to ignore illegal immigration while Mexico continues to dump illegals back across its southern border with Guatemala. While politicians and journalists use politically correct words like “undocumented workers” to describe illegals, Mexican officials don’t worry about PC niceties or legal technicalities when they round up illegals and summarily deport them.

Double standard

Here in the U.S. an illegal immigrant gets a hearing in federal court. In Mexico, an illegal often gets whacked upside the head before he or she is thrown into the river that marks the border between Mexico and Guatemala. If an American border patrol agent threw an illegal immigrant into the Rio Grande we’d never hear the end of it from Mexican officials and the ACLU, who’d be hollering about the alleged constitutional “rights” of immigrants. Again, a double standard prevails.

“Look, this (illegal border crossing) is a business,” a Mexican university professor told National Geographic. He meant not only the daily business along the riverbank, but also the broader interactions between desperately poor immigrants “and the fierce economic pull from the north.” That’s why illicit border-crossers are willing to pay “coyotes” (human smugglers) between $5,000 and $7,000 to sneak them into Mexico, and on into the U.S.

“More sophisticated international operations charge several times that amount to smuggle migrants who have reached Central America by sea or by air,” the magazine added, leaving open the possibility that some of those illegal immigrants come from the war-torn Middle East, where terrorism is a way of life. Consider that ominous possibility the next time a presidential candidate advocates amnesty disguised as “comprehensive immigration reform.” No thanks!

As I’ve noted many times, thousands of illegal immigrants are involved in the drug trade as the tentacles of Mexican drug cartels reach all the way into Northern Nevada. My guess is that most of the suspects arrested in a huge Tri-Net drug bust in Carson last month were illegals, as were those gang bangers who took a shot at a local sheriff’s deputy a couple of weeks ago. Our state prison system is already overburdened with illegal immigrant criminals, with more on the way.

The admirable efforts of the Carson City anti-meth coalition should include an immediate crackdown on illegals and gang activity. We should treat them the same way that Mexican authorities treat theirs – by deporting them right back to where they came from.

Why Is John McCain’s “Hispanic Outreach Director” Still Involved in Mexican Politics?

Because That’s How McCain Likes It.

By Allan Wall

John McCain is now the front-runner for the Republican nomination. He has the momentum, the media like him, and he’s got some big name endorsements (from Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nancy Reagan, and drop-out candidates Giuliani and Thompson, among others). Will McCain and his so-called “Straight Talk Express” take the nomination?

Here in Mexico, I haven’t thus far seen much interest in the McCain candidacy. The media has been reporting his success in the Republican primary, though he’s not yet well-known among the populace. As a rule, the Democratic candidates Hillary and Obama are better known than the Republican candidates.

And I predict that when general election time rolls around, the Democratic candidate will be the favorite here as usual, and not the GOP standard bearer, whoever he may be. McCain will turn out like President Bush, who despite his pandering to Mexico, is not well-liked here. For that matter, McCain won’t achieve a breakthrough with U.S. Hispanics either, any more than Bush did.

At VDARE.COM, we cannot endorse candidates. But we can and do evaluate them and their platforms, to see how they measure up on the National Question. Then you can vote for whom you like.

In other words, “We Report, You Decide”.

The consensus here at VDARE.COM is, and has been for years, that John McCain, when it comes to the National Question, is not on our side. If you want the border secured, if you want immigration reduced, and if you want the immigrants already here to assimilate, then John McCain is NOT your man.

That’s not an endorsement or an anti-endorsement, it’s just a fact.

And veterans, don’t forget, just because a candidate is a veteran, or even a former prisoner of war, doesn’t mean he’s doing what is right for America today. Benedict Arnold was a war hero.

For years McCain has done his best to thwart border control and to discourage assimilation. Just click this link and see the many articles written about McCain at VDARE.COM. None of them positive. They started with Señor McCain, by Peter Brimelow, February 15, 2000, just after VDARE.com was founded, and continue up to McCain Means: Amnesty, Taxes, Liberal Judges, First Amendment Erosion, Free Trade Dogma, War, By Pat Buchanan, January 24, 2008, with lots of detail in between.

McCain has a horrible record on immigration. Americans for Better Immigration give him a grade of D (for both his Career grade and Recent grade).

For years McCain has supported bilingual education. He opposed Proposition 200 in Arizona.

But it’s not just McCain’s bad voting record, and his negative leadership in promoting McCain-Kennedy and other horrible amnesty bills in recent years (which were all thankfully defeated). It’s not just the man’s rude intolerance to those who don’t agree with him. It’s McCain’s attitude, his outlook, his eagerness to put foreigners ahead of Americans.

A little exchange on the O’Reilly show in 2001 sums up this attitude:

O’REILLY: In Arizona you have the highest dropout rate in the country, all right? — You have an educational system in dire trouble. You have about a million arrests on the border, the jails are overflowing. Now, you’ve got to put the American people ahead of the Mexican people because this is the USA, am I wrong? (Loud applause, cheers and whistles from audience)

MCCAIN: Well, Bill there are many Hispanic citizens of my state of Arizona who are proud of their culture and their heritage, and I’m not sure they would exactly agree with you.

So in answer to O’Reilly’s question: McCain doesn’t think U.S. citizens should have the preference over foreigners in U.S. territory.

Remember those massive illegal alien marches in 2006? John McCain supported them. In a visit to Little Rock, Arkansas, Mike Huckabee’s stomping ground, McCain visited the folks at ¡Hola! Arkansas, a Hispanic newspaper, and told them

“I hope that the marches motivate us to move ahead with the legislation… I believe that these demonstrations—that any citizen [sic] has a right to demonstrate peacefully—is one of our fundamental rights in America that has a beneficial effect and that gives us a sense of urgency to approve the final legislation.”

Well thanks for standing up for the rule of law there John.

Recently, McCain has altered his tune a little. He’s trying to convince voters he will secure the border. But it’s not convincing to anybody who knows John McCain’s record.

On his campaign website McCain has the gall to claim that

“I have always believed that our border must be secure and that the federal government has utterly failed in its responsibility to ensure that it is secure. If we have learned anything from the recent immigration debate, it is that Americans have little trust that their government will honor a pledge to do the things necessary to make the border secure.”


Well, that’s either a big lie or a major lapse of memory (you decide). Back in 2003 John McCain told Tim Russert that “…we cannot protect our own borders”.

James Fulford has put together several contradictory McCain quotes, you can see them here .

For more evidence of where McCain’s heart is: the candidate selected Juan Hernandez (of whom I did a profile on VDARE.COM in 2002) as his campaign’s Hispanic Outreach Director.

Who is Juan Hernandez and why is it significant that John McCain picked him to be his “Hispanic Outreach Director”?

Juan Hernandez is more than your average garden variety Open Borders booster. Hernandez is a dual (U.S.-Mexican) citizen, born in Fort Worth, Texas. It was Hernandez who, in 1996, introduced George W. Bush and Vicente Fox. (See photo of the threesome here).

In the Mexican administration of Vicente Fox, Hernandez served as head of Fox’s Presidential Office for Mexicans Abroad. In the capacity, Hernandez was a tireless advocate for amnesty, driver’s licenses for illegal aliens, and most importantly, the non-assimilation of Mexican immigrants and the Mexicanization of the U.S.

This was not any sort of secret conspiracy, Hernandez spoke openly on U.S. television about wanting Mexican-Americans up to the 7th generation to “think Mexico first”, He told Tom Tancredo that the U.S. and Mexico are not two countries but “just a region”. (For a greatest hits anthology of Juan Hernandez soundbites, click here .)

Hernandez is no longer in the Mexican government. He now lives in the U.S.—where he can do more even damage. Hernandez continues to agitate for amnesty, as a senior fellow in the Reform Institute, in his own HispanA organization, and as a Hispanic Evangelical activist for amnesty .

Juan Hernandez now presents himself as an American. In a recent article on his own website he wrote “Most Americans, including myself…” And he joined forces with Dick Morris to write a book called The New American Pioneers: Why Are We Afraid of Mexican Immigrants?

But notwithstanding all that, with a little research I easily discovered that Hernandez is still active in Mexican politics. He serves on the U.S. Council of the PAN (National Action Party) (National Action Party, which recently held its convention in Los Angeles.

As for Hernandez’ blatant politicized exploitation of dual citizenship, Mark Krikorian pointed out that

“Before Earl Warren started making up emanations and penumbras of the Constitution (in this instance, the case of Afroyim v. Rusk in 1967), Hernandez would have been stripped of his American citizenship for having committed an ‘expatriating act,’ specifically ‘accepting, serving in, or performing the duties of any office, post, or employment under the government of a foreign state or a political subdivision thereof’.”

But nowadays, it’s almost impossible to “expatriate” yourself. Obviously, Hernandez isn’t worried about it

The Reform Institute, of which Hernandez is a senior Fellow, was founded by John McCain along with Bob Kerrey. It receives funding from George Soros. Officially, McCain left the Institute in 2005, so maybe that’s his excuse (though not a very good one) for supposedly not knowing about Hernandez’ more objectionable ideas and activities.

The good news is the word is out. Lately the Internet has been buzzing with the facts about Hernandez’s past activities. Now if we could just get McCain’s opponents to start hammering him on the issue…

At a campaign appearance, a lady in the audience asked McCain about Hernandez (watch here ). McCain claimed to have “no idea” about Hernandez’ controversial views.

But the truth is Juan Hernandez’ views are a perfect fit for McCain.

The plain fact is that John McCain has an unmistakable deep-seated animus against the traditional American nation. Listen to what he said in 2005 in a speech at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner:

“We are a nation of many races, many religious faiths, many points of origin. But our one shared faith is the belief that a nation conceived in an idea, in liberty, will prove stronger, more enduring, and better than any nation ordered to exalt the few at the expense of the many or made from a common race or culture or to preserve traditions that have no greater attribute than longevity.”

McCain is saying that the U.S. has no common culture, it’s a good thing it doesn’t, that a nation without a culture is stronger and more enduring.

So McCain doesn’t think that culture, ethnicity or race are in any way relevant?

Well, that depends on what race or culture he’s talking about. In 2006, in a speech to the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute, John McCain, speaking of the Hispanic Culture, put a very different spin on things:

“This [is] one of the defining moments in American history that really does define what kind of nation we are. If there was ever such a thing as a noble cause, it is the one we are embarked on now. Anyone who is afraid that somehow our culture will be anything but enriched by fresh blood and culture, in my view, has a distorted view of history and has a pessimistic view of our future.”

So, John McCain doesn’t think the U.S. has a culture, or needs a culture. But he does praise Hispanic “blood and culture” which is enriching “our culture” (the American culture he doesn’t care about).

And McCain says the Hispanicization or Mexicanization of the U.S.A. is “a noble cause” which makes this is a “defining moment in American history”.

So there you have it. John McCain wants the U.S. to be Mexicanized. In that light, all his past actions, and his current associations, make perfect sense.

Why is McCain like this? Why is he so alienated from the historic American nation?

Is it because he’s from a full-time military family, in which they moved around so much they were in effect, rootless, and the military was their culture?

Is it a bad result of his POW experience?

Is it because he lived in Arizona and thought open borders was the way to win the Hispanic Vote?

Is it because he’s considered a maverick and mistakenly believes that mavericks support open borders? (Nowadays, real mavericks oppose open borders!)

Is it just because he thought it was the cool thing to do?

Or is he on somebody’s payroll? (By the way, a major financial supporter of the McCain campaign is Republican billionaire Jerry Perenchio, former CEO of Univision, the Spanish-language television network in the U.S.)

Is it something else, or some kind of combination of all or some of the above?

I don’t know. You could psychoanalyze these guys all day and not get anywhere.

I just know that he is the way he is, and that’s what we’ve got to deal with.

Given John McCain’s record, his associations, and his anti-American attitude, I don’t see how any informed citizen could vote for the guy. That’s not an (un)endorsement, it’s just my analysis.

But what American patriot could vote for such a man?
