    All of this has so enriched my Christmas season. I am sure many many Americans are thrilled too.
    Been strange but if you read a yahoo article on Trump the liberals are outright nasty to him.
    Yet on the other hand the same commenters blast the Illegals and want them gone.
    Do believe that if an honest vote was taken, Legal Americans would over overwhelmingly vote to deport Illegals, even DACAers right after we have border security.
    There truly is a very small group of Legal Americans who like the idea of being used and abused by Illegals.

        According to census numbers 13% of the US is foreign-born (27% of CA). I would argue that being “American” involves a set up beliefs that you imbibe with your mother’s milk.

        Foreigners (not being American) in general grow up with “un-American” beliefs (I call it a “serf mentality” that thinks it must fight the privileged rulers.)

        Dems either do not believe this (“we are all people”), or do not think it matters.

          As a “foreigner” grown and educated in Switzerland I take exception to your comment. When I came to the US I knew as much about US history and customs as my American friends and co-workers. When I took my citizenship exam I was praised by the immigration official for a flawless result. I also speak four languages which is three more than most Americans.

            That’s great about you, and understandable being Swiss, (every one of the approximately half dozen Swiss imigrants I have met is very intelligent and respectful of the opportunities and values of our country) but you are in a significant minority among USA immigrants as a whole.

            Far too many come here with the sole intention of milking the country for whatever they can get from it. They do not learn our language beyond the absolute minimum to get by, our customs or traditions, our patriotic spirit or our American values.

              Here’s the problem: 60-70% of our “legal” immigrants are coming here via chain migration, not going thru the same rigorous standards that swigi went thru, especially having to learn English, including work skills or education. Wanting to assimilate is not a standard for them. And then these chain immigrants bring in their families. This is why the “merit” system, rigorously enforced, is so important to our country’s survival. Otherwise, we just have legalized migrants getting on our welfare system, which is also supposed to be a no-no for legal immigrants.

            + moving illegals into Red States

        Not true, JoAnn. One has to apply for asylum IN the US, it is not done by going to a US Embassy in a foreign country. What they’re going to apparently do now is let people apply at points of entry and then wait in Mexico, which is a huge improvement because it removes a magnet for fake claims.

    Consider this AMLO – Trump agreement a concrete Paper Wall. Meantime, impression is that AMLO for all his collectivist bent is a patriotic Mexican nationalist in his own right, concerned for the overall –not just economic– well-being of his people.

    The historic problem with virtually all South-Central Latin-American/Hispanic countries is their formative Hidalgo culture, a Portugese/Spanish colonial residue wherein race-based caste-and-class decisively preempt aboriginal figures of Aztec, Inca, or primitive Mato Grosso/pampas origin from meaningful socio-political participation.

    Alas for Southern Continentals, Hispanic culture is fundamentally at odds with Protestant Ethic gringo-Yankeedom: Over three centuries in California, ambling latifundista never so much as looked down at their feet to spot fist-sized nuggets in the richest goldfields of the world. Came Polk’s Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo ratified late in 1848, Yankee settlers took six weeks to reach Sutter’s Mill, and the ’49er Rush was on.

      The problem is not “Hildalgo” culture. The problem is Marxism. Pope John Paul II tried to fight the infiltration of Marxism in South America, but in the end he didn’t have the stomach to do what it would have taken against the Jesuits who were pushing “liberation theology.” Class and racial tensions are used by Marxists to create revolution, that is what we have seen the last 100 years in Mexico and Central and S. America, and the results have been devastating. They are using the exact same playbook here in the USA, and anyone who stands up against it gets labeled a “deplorable/Nazi/racist/white supremecist.” It’s diabolical.

          That has been my experience also. The few Mexicans I have had the pleasure of meeting were very steady workers who did not fiddle around. They got the jobs done very well and very expeditiously. I have hired several home improvement contractors and at least 3 of them had Mexican contractors. I knew they were Mexican because I asked them (Si, yo hablo un poco..).

          Even my house was constructed with a crew half of whom were Mexicans on green cards (I asked my builder), and the grading in our small development was done by a Mexican from Oaxaca on a bobcat who was very skilled. He could shape the grounds any way he was asked – swales, compound grades, whatever the builder directed him to do he could do it with the bobcat. No one has ever had drainage problems around their homes thanks to his skills.

          This same individual also installed a 110 ft. long by 3 foot high gently curved retaining wall out of 6×6 treated lumber along the front of my property which is still standing today, 22 years later without any signs of deterioration or movement. A few years ago he decided to return home to Oaxaca to his family; I think his visa expired.

It happened before and they are trying to make it happened again,this time they hope to create a permanent underclass that will be in their debt . with in a few years of whatever massive amnesty they come up with they will be ramming through full voting rights (probably under the guise of as a human right) and then they will have the upper hand for a very long time to come. Or at least till they finish destroying the United States of America. By the time their new underclass wises up and realizes who these people really are it will be too late,and the America they struggled so hard to get to will disintegrate into something similar than what they left.

Its tragic that this girl died, but she never should have been here in the first place. Her parents never should have put her in the danger to come here. Its also tragic that American citizens die at the hands of illegal alien drunk drivers, gang members, etc….none of which should have been here either. The lack of border security enabled by all the Democrats and at least 50% of the Republicans is what perpetuates this humanitarian crisis and it is they who are to blame.

    This is a video of a US citizen living in Mexico as a permanent resident (can’t vote but does not have to go back to the US boarder every year to re-apply to remain – as a work visa does).
    This is interesting because he’s driving through Zihuatanejo & Ixtapa on his way to Troncones Mexico – 20 miles north. He talks about the cost of health insurance ( really generous & relatively cheap) and how he likes to live there.

    Note: Troncones is where my son lives and works. Anyone remember I posted before about my son. He married his girlfriend in September; they both live and work in Troncones employing many local people and other US citizens that come to work there too.

    Let’s go back to the Obama regime when the push to make the minimum wage for fast food folk some $15 an hour even though the jobs were never meant to be ‘living wage’ jobs.

    I was looking at a hi-tech expo on the web and, as some of us predicted early on, the fast food industry has funded research into automated facilities that replace humans. One pizza chain has already announced largely automated stores are ready to come on line while one major burger chain’s said it will be rolling out heavily automated stores on upcoming remodelings. This techie expo was highlighting a good number of automated food prep machines including an automated burger maker that can not only flip them but cook them with mechanical correctness. The machines will eventually replace just about every breathing body in the mass consumption food prep business, dumping many thousands of low-skill workers on a dead market and blocking possible employment for low-skilled workers coming into the flow.

    Now onto the topic: what are we going to do with this continuing influx of illegals who are even more skills-disabled than our native ones? As these lowest level service jobs disappear we’;re going to have a flood of native low-skilled we’re going to have to deal with and that’s going to be expensive. Now we’re going to open the gates to waves of imported dross with few 1st world skills and only a passing familiarity with English. OK, so many of our native no-skillers have that same problem, but still…
