What Part of Illegal Don't Mexicans Understand?

Dear Readers: The Mexican doesn't want to take this week off, but has to because it's his mother periódico's Best Of issue and the Mexican is tasked with eating a thousand tacos in the search for the best one in Orange County. I'll return next week, more panzón than ever — in the meanwhile, enjoy these oldies-but-goodies. And remember: ¡A LA CHINGADA CON ALABAMA!

Dear Mexican: What's up with all the elaborate wrought-iron fences in the Mexican parts of town? It almost seems like everyone is trying to outdo each other with these amazing displays of metallurgy. Is it just another way to try to protect the cars parked on the lawn and keep the livestock from wandering off, or is it a pathway to instant respect and envy among the neighbors?

—WHrought Iron To Envy (WHITE) Guy

Dear Gabacho: This is a question that fascinates even sociologists. At a 2005 seminar called "The Latinization of American Culture," UCLA professor David Hayes-Bautista showed pictures of wrought-iron fences to describe what gabachos expect when Mexicans move into their neighborhoods. But you can find the answer on the United States-Mexico border, WHITE: fences. Miles and miles of American-made fences. Triple-layered. Jagged. Deadly. That's our introduction to American society when we illegally enter los Estados Unidos. Mexicans want to assimilate, so fences are usually the first thing we erect once we buy a casa: pointy, menacing bars wrapped with organic barbed wire like bougainvilleas or roses to keep the damn Mexicans at bay. And still — as evidenced by the lemons stolen from my front lawn every night — Mexicans jump them.

What is it about the word "illegal" that Mexicans don't understand?

—D.G.

Dear Gabacho: Take your pick, D.G. Mexicans don't understand the word "illegal" because: A) when paying their gardeners, nannies, busboys and factory workers in cash (and forgetting to withhold payroll taxes), U.S. employers don't seem to understand the word "illegal," so why should Mexicans? B) The Anglo-American trappers and traders whom you and I were taught to admire as tough, self-sufficient frontiersmen and pioneers were among the American Southwest's first illegals. Who are you calling illegal, gabacho? C) Presidente Bush's proposal to offer amnesty and a guest-worker program to all illegal immigrants during his administration — a move designed to appease his supporters in the business community — means even Republicans don't understand the word. D) Whether they buy a fake passport or take a citizenship oath, Mexicans will never be more than wetbacks in the eyes of many Americans, so why bother applying for residency? E) The Society of Professional Journalists just passed a resolution asking newspapers to require its reporters to describe as "undocumented workers" the men and women you call "illegal." F) Little-known fact: The fragment of poetry on the Statue of Liberty ("Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free," etc.) does not, because of a French engraver's error, include Emma Lazarus' rarely cited footnote: "No Mexicans, please." Fucking French. But the real answer is the word itself. "Illegal" is an English word; Mexicans speak Spanish — yet you never hear Mexicans whine that their bosses don't understand such easy Spanish phrases as "pinche puto pendejo baboso," do you?

Dear Mexican,I love Mexicans and Mexican culture. I show as much respect to whomever crosses my path, no matter class, race, gender, orientation, or status. But one thing is for sure...by and large, Mexicans are NOT trying to assimilate. There are enough Mexicans in this country to sustain themselves as an independent nation and economy within the confines of these borders. Mexicans are just as racist, protectionist, and insular as any other group could possibly be, including Asians and White people. I myself have gone out of my way to befriend Mexicans and I accept them as brothers and sisters, but let's be honest. Mexicans are comfortable being insulated within their culture. You guys are not falling over each other trying to be assimilated. I know this man.

obama is another idiot whos a loser at compromising with congress. on the other hand, congress doesnt want the good of the nation. they overlook big items such as defense and maintainance, corruption that involves tax dollar oversees etc.. it has double standards when it comes to illegal immigration. its a fact that they come into this nation and are well integrated because they have pop. base. the problem is, they are a burden to state programs, alot of which are funded by feds. problem starts when they obtain social ILLEGALLY, they pay no taxes because of their status, intentionally have lot of children for their benefit; and theres alot of those. its apparent that this nation keeps govt. separate from business. we see illegals that have homes, cars, bank acct. the list goes on. if its that easy then i should forfeit my passport and social and live like them. i spent alot of money andwent through bottlenecks to obtain my citizenships only to be told that social sec may not exist; subsidies for programs cut , and ultimately my living standard degraded to substandard. its better not to give taxes if its going to be abused in ways that hurt CITIZENS. it may seem as an offshoot, we should teach kids trades and things that are done by illegals and get rid of them.

This country has always been made of immigrants, invited and uninvited.

This answer to the "illegal" question is so full of errors I am stressed to know where to begin. Employers DO understand "illegal" and are exploiting it. Shame on them. I am all for punishment of these employers. Frontiersman and pioneers were "illegal"? Give me a break. It was a wide open country..there were no LEGAL residents so there could not be an ILLEGAL resident...what spinmaster with an agenda taught you history? Re: Bush's proposal to offer amnesty...your statement does not compute. Explain how an offer of amnesty means they don't understand you are illegal. On point D, you demonstrate you have been so filled with twisted hate you can't see the forest for the trees. WE ALL support legal immigrants and applaud those that become citizens. Those that don't are criminals plain and simple. There is a huge differance in how they are viewed and treatedd. Someone is really making a lot of money out of teaching you their racism. The Society of Professional Journalists are aiding and abetting those that would exploit illegals by misprotraying them to employers as simply "undocumented" and thus OK to financially abuse. They should also be charged with some sort of crime. And your very crude obscenity at the end, shows you do not have the ability to make a coherent argument.

You only have to look at the coal miners up north to realize that there is NO job a real American won't do. What kind of American would rather hire an illegal alien than give a decent wage to an American? ans: A cheap ass traitor! When I was a child, I saw American workers on road construction, housing construction, even painters and carpet layers. Now in Texas, I never see that. If illegal aliens want to say this used to be their land, get a grip. All the land in the world USED TO BE someone elses. The key phrase here is: "used to be" When this was 'their land' were there free schools, emergency medical care or any other benies? There was nothing here worth having and nothing is what we owe Mexico. Every country has borders and a right (and a government duty) to protect that border for the tax paying citizens that live within that border. While I scrimp and save to pay my property taxes, I would like the fat cat politicians to explain to me WHY I have to pay to educate children who are here illegally!! Why did I have to bring my son's birth certificate to school when I enrolled him to prove he was a citizen!?

Mexican citizens have a country that is not worth living in and was corrupted long before it became a narco state. We have had organized crime in the U.S. but NEVER anything like the brutality that goes on in Mexico now. Do the members of these cartels in a Catholic society even have mothers? What kind of women have raised this new generation? Mexico's criminals make our worst look like kindergarteners. I used to vacation in Mexico, I wouldn't set foot in that country now. American's didn't raise those criminals, Mexico did. We need razor wire coils stacked between TWO fences the length of the border and 20 feet tall. Plant flowers on it, I don't care. Are burglar bars an insult to my neighbor? ...not unless he was planning a break in! We have plenty of Mexican gangs now in this country too, and more coming. Don't worry, your government officials can afford to protect their property and pay their illegal help while they are at it.

I feel sorry for the illegal aliens who want to escape Mexico, I feel sorry for most of the citizens in third world countries. Can we now accommodate all of them here!!?? Do we not have a right to set limits on immigration? We should calculate how many illegals are here from each country and reduce the limit on Mexico to zero if need be for the next 30 years or so and close that border. Let the people who are for making the illegal legal pay for it. This is not about human rights. There is no God given right to live in someone elses country. Politically 'correct' terms and thinking have gone to obscene new levels. There is no such thing as 'undocumented workers' ~ get over it, they are illegal aliens trespassing on someone elses land. And I am tired of paying the cost.

I just can't believe some things people have to say about Mexicans we are all humans for that being said we are all the same no matter where you are from or what color you are. This is a free country or at least it use to be before all the red necks tried to take over . If we don't put a stop to it now who knows what can of future our children are going to have, stop and think what we are teaching this children. I thought the KKK didn't exist anymore but it seems like they still do trying to run everything. Shit if Mexicans ain't aloud I think everyone that wasn't born here should all go back from where they came from not only the Mexicans.... Thank You !!!!!!!!For all y'all stupid people this is Mexico but it got taken away.

The position that pro-illegal immigration hacks take about, "illegals do the work LAZY Americans wont do" is a total red herring. I am a white American and myself and my friends growing up, 20 years ago, did all of the jobs the writer states that lazy Americans wont do. Working fields, roofing, mowing lawns, painting houses, etc.The difference now is, American kids can't get those types of jobs because of illegals. An industry that is reversing that trend is the petro-chemical industry. Plants now require workers to be able to read, speak and often write English, a novel concept I know, and now you are seeing a resurgence of white and black Americans doing the majority of jobs inside of the plants. The other point you often see, not in this article, is that the labor provided by illegals is skilled labor instead of simply cheap labor; as if all of these people are trained craftsmen arriving ready to blow away their American competitors. It simply isn't true. A guy shows up at a job site and he is simply put to work, if he can't grasp the position he is just sent to another till his mistakes drop enough to be passable. Of course anyone who has bought a home, usually built in under three months, in the last 10 years knows this by how frequently they have to call the builder out to constantly mend and repair their new home.

My sad friend, your lack of comprehension of economic reality shows so transparently.

In this last 1/2 century, almost exclusively brown skinned, Spanish specking Hispanic Catholics, but once were equally in history Chinese, Irish & Italian, among others, is what one could call a “Illegal Immigrant Slave economy,” where a wiling 3rd world illegal immigrant, is willing to take much less and a willing enterprise is willing to pay far less, met, in a mutual aid society, while a see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil governance willfully ignores how easily it could, if willing, dismantle this Tax payer Bailout Mutual aid society, by merely allowing ALL of societies authorized legal authorities to enforce current and existing law to monetarily affect this taxpayer subsidized mutual aid Economic slavery Industry .

If they would act you would see those economic slaves’ appearance and demographics change dramatically and quickly.

Though at a higher costs of labor to this hypocritical society which allows illegal’s to work while citizens go unemployed, allows illegal’s access to taxpayer’s money citizens should be getting while most illegal’s pay little back in return for the far larger amounts they get from society for just being here.

No country gains or survives when its citizens and immigrants take more than they give back.

In this era, unlike all of America’s other era’s of great immigrations, today’s illegal’s take far more than they give back, and, still greedily demand and want more.

Deport all illegals now! Obama should be brought before Congress to explain his Support of Sanctuary cities, while he releases the hounds on any state attempting to protect itself from illegals. He needs to explain the release of 10s of thousands of illegals from ICE detention facilities, as well as the issuance of work permits for the same, Obama is in violation of Article1, Section 2 of the constitution, saying the President will faithfully enforce Federal Law, He is in violation of his oath of office for failing to defend, and protect the Constitution. He is guilty of suborning the violation of Federal Law.,

Obviously a DISD graduate who clearly does not know factual history and likes to show he is as racists as there are by using the pejorative racial insult intended name "gabacho," meaning, in street lingo white person, but formally meaning White Americans.

Historical factual evidence shows the first non-Native Americans to enter the "America's were Hispanic Europeans and in the SW US particularly, they were Spaniards who came as conquistadors.

That is precisely why that "Spanish" is the mother tongue,,with the exception of Brazilian Portuguese, and Catholicism is the majority religion among ALL people from Mexico to the most southern tip of South America.

So if you speak Spanish and or are Catholic you are as "Gabacho" as they were when they came here.

In history no land has not been taken from someone or lost to someone at one time or another, perhaps many times to same peoples too. This is even so among Native Americans too. To think in terms of "We were here first" is a fool of ignorance's errand, leaving vacant that they who claim to be first, in actuality, took it from some else to get it...

Being a racists is acceptable and par for the course for those who pretend racism is a one way street painted white.

Stopping white racism and denying others equal prevailing racism does nothing to solve racism comrade ,it just perpetuates it.

But being ignorant, while speaking as if one knows what their talking about is not acceptable and needs to be shown for what it is, a perpetrator of myths, lies and distortions as to this topic. Comrade.

What's more funny is how Americans always claim that Texas wasn't stolen because Texas "won" independence. Oh yea? Then why do all Texas independence heroes have English last names? Sam Houston? Why isn't that a Spanish name? I thought Texas was part of Mexico and the rebels were Mexicans living in Mexico tired of Mexican government. Not!

The only Mexican hero from Texas with a Spanish last name is Ignacio Zaragoza, and he was fighting on the 5 de Mayo battle in Puebla against the French invasion.

So, was it really independence? Not. It was Americans that settled in Mexican territory and then they fought with weapons and violence to steal the land.

It is as if all the current illegals in Texas now fought independence once more and then annex to Mexico. Wouldn't that be called stealing? or would that be a legit independence?

Think about it.

seriusly?? sooo the majority of these "illegal' immigrants,do the HARD work that WE as LAZY americans refuse to do, roofing, lawn work, cleaning your house...etc!!! so Who gives a fuck if they are "illegal" or not? dont get me wrong I dont like paying taxes to support their free health benefits, college educations, and deportation, but then again if they didnt get underpaid, maybe they would pay these taxes...Im white, in Texas and have many hispanic friends, dont get it twisted "Americans", I myself was not partial to Illegal immigrants at one point, but then you take a step back and say hmmmm....if they were not here...damn, life would get pretty tough for all of us LAZY AMERICANS...myself included :) so just remember this country was founded by people who came here and Raped, Pilliaged and stole land from the REAL Americans, the NATIVE AMERICANS...so before you run out and forget our own immigration history, look into your past and see where you actually came from...chances are your ancestors were illegal immigrants at one point too...so get off your high horse and get back to ground level and realize that there is far more problems in this country then illegal immigration, like our fucked off government and politicians that are making salaries of 100k or more and supporting the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer...not to mention the under the table money that they recieve and DO NOT PAY TAXES ON from all of the lobbyists such as the Oil, Tobacco, Alcohol and pharmaceutical industries...just my opinion, if you dont like it, immigrate illegally to mexico and see if you want to stay there and maybe you will realize how good we have it here, and maybe you will understand why they all want to move here..just saying.

Every nation in the world was founded in blood and conquest at some point, so go ahead and get over that drivel. Nations now have laws and defined (somewhat) borders and have evolved into what they are now. No one, from any country, has a right to emigrate to this or any other country; Mexico proves that given the measures the country goes to protect its own southern border. Americans not wanting the uneducated hordes from Mexico to come unchecked and freely to this country are doing the most basic act of self-preservation.

Mexicans bring crime. Period. There is a higher incidence of violent crime, child abuse, and sexual abuse in the Mexican culture than any other in this country. What is wrong with people wanting to halt the immigration of all of that? What is wrong with people not wanting to see their neighborhoods and cities taken over? When actual Americans have to pack up and move and leave an area because it has been taken over, that area will never be prosperous again. It happens all over the state and country.

I agree with some of your points and respectfully disagree with others.

We should abolish our random 50k a year lottery for anyone and anybody who applies to get in to the US. Majority of those winners have zero education but they do have a thirst for American jobs, but it would be better to give those to our neighbors down south. That's a start.

Offer American by blood, like the French foreign legion.....it's already allowed at this time but not official. I say allow anyone who does serve an 8 year obiligation, should enjoy a higher education or lifetime of healthcare benefits from Tricare as a veteran.

Being second generation American, with parents who were never taught of their previous culture but assimilated readily to America, I cannot unfortunately carry or feel too much guilt about any previous land grabs.

I will say that being in Texas, you meet some of the hottest hispanic/tan skinned ladies with German last names. And then some blonde guys with Spanish last names, a testament to those who have been here all along before any of those wars/annexations/or large land purchases, a true Texican culture.

Most illegals are Central American and not Mexican and their immigration treatment in Mexico is much more brutal than the US, can I blame them for coming here, no. Can I blame us for removing them in the most gentle yet firm measures, no.

Politicians do suck, I am always active and have voted in every election........I voted for Bush and can readily accept blame that he grew the government oversight and spending was out of control...so yes it's true Obama inheirited a mess but its simple, veto anything not in the budget and cut costs across the board.......Democrats fundamentally are just as bad with social policy and would continue to grow expenditures and government, and there is no "Change" after Obama either, just a difference in where the money goes and where government grows.

So both sides have failed me historcally, there fore I am independent/more pro former Governor Gary Johnson, and maybe 2nd with Ron Paul. I know they wont change their tune in office.

There are too many issues at a federal level to not be decided by states themselves. let California legalize pot or Maryland have gay marriage. I may not agree in these points but it's NOT my business what adults do behind closed doors.

The Statue of Liberty welcomes LEGAL immigrants as they enter the country legally, just before they are processed. She is NOT an invitation to the hordes of uneducated all over the world. If she were, we would move her to the Mexican border. In her current location, Mexicans don't have an excuse to once again misinterpret a woman's signals... The world does not belong to all of us. Ever hear of property rights? Nations have them, just as individuals have them. There was a time when countries were just forming and land was all there was. People went where they wanted and helped build and defend a country, and either won or lost territory. Now we have borders and laws. Guess what? People from other places are invited, kind of like you must do at your house. Get it?

When we first bought our house, (oddly it was Mexicans), youth from a nearby apartment complex used to cross into another neighborhood through our yard (and IN FRONT OF ME!) We fixed the old fence daily. They kicked it in, tore a door off our empty but locked storage shed. Well, A brand new tall strong fence was erected, and there is often our 100 pound dog out there. Funny, no one risks crossing now. Seems they can't jump the fence and cross before the hound can tear them a 'new one.'

Borders can and should be defended. Just because people trespass for great lengths of time doesn't mean it can't be stopped. Anyone notice this isn't an empty prairie anymore? The things that are here were paid for by the the legal citizens of this country. This includes schools, roads, bridges, buildings, hospitals, etc. etc. WE built these things, and created programs to help OUR citizens with OUR money! Want to join? Secure an invitation. And if some of Mexico’s aliens helped, then they were paid at a wage that was agreed upon, and the $$ went very far when they took it home to spend in Mexico.

BTW, I guess all that Cocaine money must go REALLY far in Mexico.

I have read your screaming 150+ word sentence... When I was young, an extremely long time ago, I traveled extensively and deeply into the interior of Mexico. When Mexicans talk about coming home (to Texas), they conveniently fail to mention that their Spaniard ancestors were invaders! I met the original descendants, of the land called Mexico, indians living in grass huts. Children who had never seen whites gathered and stared into my blue eyes. Now, talk about poor!!! To be Mexican, is to be part native indian and part Spaniard (just so you know). They spoke an entirely different language, not Spanish. I know, I tried to communicate in Spanish.

Mexican ancestors did just what we did here, took the land from natives long, long ago. As for Americans coming over (from Europe) illegally, no, they did not. They came on ships before immigration limits and the laws we have now. I have done my genealogy, and my ancestors came here in the very beginning fought to stay alive, built churches. fought for the North to free the slaves and in subsequent world wars, for this nation (NOT for Mexico...)

You brought up drugs :) Do you know who Griselda Blanco was? Do your homework. This was a Columbian woman, known as the Godmother. She also, an illegal alien is the reason cocaine was brought into American's slums, research her sometime. Now Columbia feeds the Cocaine to Mexico instead of directly into the United States. Mexico brings those drugs here. Who is more to blame, the pusher or the user? A huge amount of the Cocaine is brought across ranches on our loose borders. American $$$ of the addicted go back to Mexico's economy (in the billions) not our economy. The responsibility is both the addicted and the suppliers. But, if jail sentences are any indication, the suppliers are more responsible.

Do I feel sorry for Mexican children who didn't asked to be brought here? Sure. But, children all over the world suffer because of their parents choices. It is still not my job to support their education or medical costs, anymore than it is my job to feed all of Africa or India because their parents chose to have a dozen or more children.

No other country is invading our borders at the massive level Mexico is. Notice any Canadians flooding our country? Others would have to come by ship or air.

Get rid of the guilt America, Mexicans aren't coming home, any more than the Spaniards did when they took all that gold!

Do some research, stop using ALL CAPS, perhaps just don't post...

"Like you said. This is your land now but not for long."

If so, it will only be due to the fools who have the doors open to the invasion.

I'm sorry crime has been here for a long time. It's just didn't began the hightest crime rate has been around for years. You need to start looking at he news, the rappest, serial killers, sex offerders are white people sorry to say that but those are the facts. If a white person loose's ther job they think it is the end of the world and kill there family when have you heard of a Mexican doing that.My agreement is that people from all over the world come here for the same reason the Mexicans do for a better life and for jobs, so why do they just talk about Mexicans... Everyone that doesn't belong here should be sent back from where they came from not only the Mexicans, shit if we sending them back we need to start sending everyone back... that's the end

I would bet my last dollar that little Jasmen Gonzalez, the 10 year old girl from Oklahoma who was murdered last week in Carrollton, would still be alive today had Jose Sifuentes not been here ILLEGALLY after being previously deported..
