Looking at the history of North America we see that large-scale
immigration has always had negative effects on the regionís native
population. 13,000 years ago Americaís first immigrants came from
Northeast Asia to become the ancestors of todayís Indians. They hunted
the large mammals into extinction and seriously reduced the life
expectancy of others.
Next the mass immigration from Western Europe came and had catastrophic
effects on the Indians. In 1492 the Indian population was estimated at
six million. By 1910, when the U.S. Bureau of the Census made its first
effort to count the Indians, they only found 266,000. European settlers
kept coming and in less than 300 years the Indiansí way of life was
When Southern and Eastern Europeans began migrating in large numbers, the
Western Europeans felt threatened. This time the natives were more
numerous, better organized, and better educated than the immigrants. The
natives were worried that the new immigrants would undermine the
institutions and traditions that had made America successful. Also,
American workers worried about losing their jobs.
After the depression of the 1890s, Congress made serious attempts to
restrict immigration. First they voted to exclude immigrants who were
illiterate. Then, in 1921, they passed quotas based on the national
origin of the immigrant.
At this time immigration did not cause unemployment but it did impede the
growth of blue-collar workersí wages and led to ethnic conflict making
union organizing more difficult. However, the new immigrants blended with
their Western European cousins and the country as a whole became richer,
better educated, and more democratic.
Through ethnic assimilation, these second generation immigrants always
became fluent in English and adopted the American way of life as their
own. No linguistic minority dominated any large American city the way
Spanish speakers now dominate Miami and most U.S.-Mexican border towns.
Mexican immigration poses challenges, to our policies and our identity,
in a way nothing else has in the past. In the first 200 years of the U.S.
about 240,000 people immigrated each year. In 2002, immigration increased
our population by nearly 3 million.
Hispanics are the largest group of first generation Americans. In 2002,
72 percent of Hispanic births were to Mexican women, up 66 percent from
1990. One in every ten babies born in the U.S. has a mother who
immigrated to this country. Six in ten of these babies are Mexican.
The Mexican population growth rate is exponential. In January 2004 the
Census Bureau says the U.S. will be recording a birth every 8 seconds, a
death every 13 seconds, and adding an immigrant every 25 seconds. The
result is an increase of 1 person every 12 seconds. CNN reported an
estimated 91 illegal Mexicans come to Georgia each day.
Three million new Mexicans will be added to our population this year. One
million are legal, another one million will be illegal, and nearly
another million will be born in the U.S. Mexicans make up 62 percent of
the illegal immigrants entering our country. Illegal Mexican immigrants
were nine times as numerous as the next largest contingent, from El
Hispanics in America, now numbered at 35 million, have outgrown the
Afro-Americans, numbered at 33 million, to become the largest minority in
the U.S. The Immigration and Naturalization Service reported that roughly
12 million immigrants, mostly Mexicans, were currently living illegally
in the U.S.
The 2000 Census report showed that as the Mexicans moved into urban
centers, the white and black natives moved out. Most of these Mexicans
have no education and seek underground employment in agriculture,
landscaping, or construction. As they dominate an area, educated Mexicans
move in to assume positions in the local government. They then organize
legal and illegal immigrants through cell phones, radio, and computer
blogs as witnessed by the recent public demonstrations and raising of
Mexican flags. Their first big demonstration showed much anti-American
sentiment. The American flag hung upside-down under the Mexican flag,
posters wishing the rapid demise of Americans, obscene gestures, and
flagrant comments to reporters were all documented on videotape. Their
leaders realized the negative impression would not sway Congress to grant
amnesty or a worker program for the 12 million illegals. They swiftly
arranged for the second nationwide demonstrations to show a different
motive. The demonstrators wore all white, carried hundreds of American
flags, and said positive things like they came here to work and do jobs
Americans did not want. It was a great counter-measure as the spiritual
side of a large number of Americans had blinded them to the realities of
In California no school system has ever experienced such a large influx
of students from a single foreign country. Instead of assimilating our
language and culture, they are changing the American system to a Mexican
As more immigrants pour into these Mexican communities, they can work and
live without ever learning English. Many border states are approaching a
50% Mexican population. In the next few decades, the Mexicans will be the
majority race in California and most southwestern states. According to
anthropological research, by the end of this century, Mexicans will be
the dominant race in the U.S.
Mexican President Vincente Fox wants to remove all restrictions on the
movement of Mexicans into the U.S. And why not when in the last decade
Mexican immigrants sent more than 45 billion dollars to relatives south
of the border. Citi Bank reported 960 million dollars was sent from the
state of Georgia to Mexico in 2003. The Mexican migrant workers used to
return to Mexico for the winter months, but with heightened security at
the borders, most of them stay here increasing the demographic for
Mexican communities retaining their national identity. The battles fought
include American schools adding Spanish to the core curriculum, local
bank ATMís asking if you want to conduct your transaction in Spanish,
electronic answer machines asking you to press 2 for Spanish, duplicate
instructions in Spanish and English on most products, road signs in
Spanish, more Spanish speaking radio and television stations, and the
high rate of newly owned Mexican businesses across America are all
victories for the Mexicans. They will control America by simply out
-numbering us and use our own democracy to dominate us. The strategy of
warfare without conventional weapons has the American people as duped as
the Trojan horse. Americans are rushing to aid their conquerors in the
name of human dignity and Political Correctness without even considering
the veracity of scientific data from their own anthropologists. If
President Bush and some Congressmen think they will get the Hispanic vote
by granting the illegal immigrants amnesty, the consequence is tantamount
to surrender by the American people. Those 12 million plus the 35 million
already here will elect their own officials and get an insurmountable
grip on America.
A study by Mexicoís National Population Council concluded: "the migratory
phenomenon between Mexico and the U.S.A. is structural and permanent. The
steady, massive flow of legal and illegal Mexican immigrants into the
U.S.A. cannot be stopped and will not decrease."
The long-term consequences of Mexican immigration are devastating to the
environment and to the wellbeing of the United States.
World population has more than doubled in just 30 years. Human numbers
are adversely impacting water quality, wildlife habitat, and contributing
to global climate change.
On the local level, we are faced with traffic gridlock, loss of green
space, and air quality problems. Depressed wages, due to cheap labor, and
social disparity, a growing gap between those who have and the have-nots,
are just a few of the storms brewing the U.S. is now facing.
In almost every recent year, the Border Patrol has stopped about one
million people attempting to enter the U.S. illegally from Mexico. It is
estimated that nearly one million make it across illegally.
If over one million Mexican soldiers crossed the border with weapons,
Americans would treat it as a major threat to their national security and
react accordingly. The invasion of over three million Mexicans a year is
a comparable threat to American societal security and Americans should
react against it with comparable vigor.
Mexican immigration looms as a unique and disturbing challenge to our
cultural integrity, our national identity, and potentially to our future
as a country.
Important and Forgotten Words:
Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here
in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall
be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage
to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or
origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an
American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided
allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else
also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the
American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars
against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign
flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one
language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for
but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
