Mexico has de facto colonized much of the United States, and with the growth of its population has come its culture: some good, much not so good.
Of course, Mexicans themselves know this difference; that’s why they come here. They know America is orderly, clean, mostly law abiding, prosperous, devoid of petty corruption, organized, built up, and more free. Mexico, by tradition and by the metastatic spread of violence and corruption from its drug cartels, is the opposite: violent, dirty, lawless, poor, corrupt, disorganized, shoddy, and somewhat authoritarian. Its refugees carry with them the very plague from which they are escaping. And, if they do not in large part share these characteristics, the porous border through which they enter allows every unsavory element from that society to enter alongside those who are merely poor and seeking work.
Should it be any great surprise that the hallmark of Latin American crime, the assassination and intimidation of public officials, has now migrated to Texas, a state immediately adjacent to some of the most violent quarters of Mexico: Juarez, Nuevo Laredo, and the entire state of Tamaulipas?
Two prosecutors and one of their wives are down. More are sure to come. Even the mainstream media is suggesting it is some combination of Mexican cartels and their allied American gangs, such as the Aryan Nations.
Americans are proud people. I don’t think they’ll back down in the fact of this, especially down in Texas. But then again relatively few people find their ordinary jobs life and death affairs.
This immigration problem is not merely a question of language, or culture, or jobs, or the stress on schools and infrastructure. All of these things and more make up a way of life. And the mass introduction of very different people with a very different way of life threatens to undo what has taken several centuries to build and that was based entirely on inherited Anglo-Saxon customs, a largely Anglo-Saxon people, and the deliberate assimilation and forced conformity of newcomers.
