Like reporting on the research of an obvious survey question, the Pew Research Center said that a majority of respondents in Latin Americans countries oppose or disapprove of the border wall. However, it's interesting that the Pew Research Center doesn't understand the will of Americans to protect and secure their country.
Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has announced Texas will not accept any more refugees through the federal resettlement program. The announcement has caused a meltdown among liberals, leftists, and the immigrant/poverty industry supporters. Still, a careful review of Texas’ immigrant and refugee history gives an understanding of how much the State has done for newcomers.
Between 1910 and 1920, during the chaos of the Mexican Revolution, nearly a million Mexicans fled from the conflict in the first massive wave of Mexican immigration into the United States. The majority of these “refugees” settled in Texas and California.
Again, beginning in 1975 through 1982, over 60,000 Vietnamese settled in Texas, mostly in the Houston area. The majority of these Vietnamese refugees were educated persons who fled the communists after the fall of South Viet Nam.
"Mexico News Daily" is reporting that a feud over water caused the recent attack on the Mormon women and children. However, the massacre was carried with weapons that are not generally used by farmers, especially since private gun-ownership is against the law in Mexico.
This news report appears to be “spin” by the Mexican news media who are reacting to the international interest but fear to report the facts because of cartel threats. Many Mexican reporters have been killed, and news editors fear for their lives. However, the massacre is too big of a news story to ignore, so Mexican news has had to write an alternative narrative.
Opinion writer Ruben Navarrette views Hispanics who assimilation and who support for Trump in negative terms. He compares "Latinos for Trump" to “chickens for Colonel Sanders,” and call President Trump “the most anti-Latino chief executive in U.S. history.”
If Navarrette is going to analyze and criticize pro-Trump Latinos (like me), let me do likewise with him.
The U.S./Canada border is the longest international border in the world, and it may soon present problems as significant as the Mexican border. The Champlain, NY Border Patrol station is witnessing an increase of Mexicans arrested for illegally entering the United States from Canada.
This increase in illegal immigration from Canada is due to some progressive changes in Canadian immigration laws that allow certain nationalities to enter with minimum requirements. Canada’s Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) program enables citizens from Mexico and Romania to enter without first obtaining a visa. Those aliens arrive legally in Canada but cross illegally into the U.S.
In November 2016, Canada ended its visa requirements for Mexicans who fly into the country and only required an online precheck be completed to land in Canada. Since then, the ETA program has expanded to included Romania and more than 50 countries.
