From Bloomberg:

Stop Trump Movement Gets Boost From Mexico’s Efforts in U.S.

By Eric Martin and Nacha Cattan
March 20, 2016, 2:10 PM PDT Updated on March 21, 2016, 2:02 PM PDT

Consulates in U.S. promote citizenship for immigrants
Charm offensive seeks to bolster image of Mexico in U.S.

Mexico is mounting an unprecedented effort to turn its permanent residents in the U.S. into citizens, a status that would enable them to vote — presumably against Donald Trump.

Officially, Mexico says it respects U.S. sovereignty and has no strategy to influence the result of the presidential race. Yet Mexican diplomats are mobilizing for the first time to assist immigrants in gaining U.S. citizenship, hosting free workshops on naturalization.

“This is a historic moment where the Mexican consulate will open its doors to carry out these types of events in favor of the Mexican community,” Adrian Sosa, a spokesman for the consulate in Chicago, said before an event on March 19. In Dallas, about 250 permanent residents attended the consulate’s first “citizenship clinic” in February and another 150 in its second in March. In Las Vegas, the turnout topped 500.

    ‘Foreign Meddling’ is a great counter-meme, like Fake News.

    The establishment media tried to smear all alternative media as ‘fake news’, but Trump and alternative media shot back and pointed out how so much of MSM is fake news.

    So, if the powers in the establishment wants to play with this ‘foreign meddling’ meme, then it can easily be turned against them.

    I mean, when it comes to ‘foreign meddling’, Russia is a minnow compared to other bigger fishes.

    1. Aside from Weigel and maybe a small number of other cases, Trump hasn't shown any MSM sources actually lying. He's highlighted their mistakes (usually corrected), but he hasn't intellectually engaged their arguments and shown their fans how they're being duped. He hasn't mobilized his many smart fans (no doubt) to do that either. On immigration that's especially annoying since the MSM lies all the time and most believe it. If you want the MSM to be intellectually engaged and shown wrong by those with megaphones in a smart/sane/patriotic/big tent way, Trump and his fans are no help.

    2. Trump supports amnesty.

    3. Trump or his kids or his associates were at the least keen to get dirt from the Russians. They didn't want smart arguments about HRC's policies, they wanted dirt that'd appeal to lunkheads. They could have easily undercut HRC to her base by making smart arguments, but they just wanted low-watt dirt instead.

    You want people to simply use MX's meddling to help Trump. You want them to support idiocracy. The patriotic choice is to oppose foreign meddling across the board, no matter who gets hurt or helped.

    P.S. I've written hundreds of posts about MX's meddling and I've rarely gotten any help from cons, r/w entertainers, etc. My first post about their meddling was way back in 2002. I've covered how they wanted to conduct a census of Mex-Ams in the military, how they're linked to various powerful NGOs like the ACLU, etc. etc. Despite it all, cons have rarely if ever helped. Patriotism is just situational for them.

  2. It occurred to me today that we effectively have formed a European Union-style labor pool with Mexico. When the US economy is doing well more workers come north, keeping wages low. When the economy tanks, like it did in 2008, workers go home to see what they can find.

    I don’t recall approving a treaty or other agreement…

    Send them home. Every damned one of them.

    Well, in a way you can't fault Mexico for looking out for their interest. Lots of money is send home. I think Trump would be smart to pushed Mexico to denationalized Pemex. Mexico main problem is poor oil refineries. Maybe, Trump should get Rick Perry to do this since Texas and Mexico are involved in oil projects.

    But (and I know Ann reads Steve):

    There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent — 16 — were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.

  8. Billionaire Carlos Slim’s Foundation To Help Mexican Residents Become U.S. Citizens

    The Carlos Slim Foundation, Mexican billioniare Carlos Slim Helú’s philanthropic organization, joined forces with the National Autonomous University of Mexico, known as UNAM, and the country’s Commission on Human Rights to help Mexican legal immigrants in the U.S. become citizens, the three organizations announced last month. There are 2.7 million permanent residents from Mexico eligible for U.S. citizenship who haven’t taken that step yet, according to the Pew Center.

  14. I’ve mentioned this before, but it bears another mention. From Pat Buchanan’s book, “State of Emergency, the third world invasion and conquest of America”, he quotes immigration statistics from JFK’s book on immigration written in 1958.

    From 1607 to 1958, 6,798,313 immigrants came from Germany or its pre unification states. Italy sent 5,017,625. These were the two largest source nations of immigrants as of 1958. BTW, Great Britain, the mother country, sent 4,642,096 and Ireland 4,693,009.

    Here is the link to the text of his book. If it doesn’t come up right, advance to page 243 of his book for the stats.

    We all know that since 1958 not many Europeans have come to this nation. So the combined total of nearly 11.7 million Germans and Italians probably hasn’t grown significantly.

    Meanwhile, according to the Pew Center:

    Mexico is the top origin country of the U.S. immigrant population. In 2015,11.6 million immigrants living in the U.S. were from there, accounting for 27% of all U.S. immigrants.

    Think about that. Most of the German, Italian, English, Irish and other immigrants are dead. So those JKF numbers are cumulative totals from the time of Jamestown Colony until 1958. But by definition the 11.6 million people living in the US who were born in Mexico are all alive, and must have come relatively recently. Sure there might be some older ones who came here in the 1960s. But the lion’s share had to have come in the past 2 to 3 decades.

    This means Mexico has sent as many immigrants in the past 2 to 3 decades as the next two largest source nations ever sent in about 400 years!

    Something else to note, it does not count the Mexican immigrants who are dead. Thus people who came 50 years ago and died, or people who came a couple of years ago and died are not counted. So the 11.6 million figure is not the true number of Mexican immigrants to the USA. That number is higher.

    By a large margin now Mexicans are the dominant immigrant group in the nation. And that was no where close to being the case if one goes back just thirty years. For Mexico to send so many people in so little time to effectively become the largest immigrant source nation, bigger than the next two combined, is unreal. If this is not meddling in our affairs, I don’t know what is.

    Are we supposed to believe that Mexicans are getting help for the first time ever and ignore the veritable army of immigration assistance organizations, private, secular, religious and governmental (city, county, state and Federal)?

  18. I live in Austin and read this today

    http://www.statesman.com/news/local/read-the-text-mayor-steve-adler-state-the-city-address/8eiTka79CSLptD1h3FF9FI/

    The mayor of my city, Austin, is working with politicians of Mexico to facilitate illegal immigration and amnesty.

    Before I begin, I want to thank Consul General Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez of Mexico for introducing me this evening.

    People don’t realize that how closely we are working together these days. It hasn’t always been so. Used to be we saw each other only at happy occasions, like at Casa Mexico during SXSW.

    Times have changed, and so has our relationship. I want to tell you something that not many people know. When the immigration raids began earlier last year and Austin was made a particular target, we had no reliable access to information except what we got from my friend, the Consul General. At that moment, we found ourselves in common cause in service of this city — and all of its people.

    That bond was strengthened when Hurricane Harvey looked like it was headed right at us. His government immediately offered shelter to any Texan who might need it.

    You and your wife were in our local shelters tending to all our guests. Again and again, my friend, you demonstrate that you care about people – all people – yours, mine, and ours.

    Consul General Gonzalez Gutierrez, you are my partner in some of the biggest challenges facing our two countries. Tonight, I pledge to you not only continued brotherhood and friendship, but continued vigilance in our efforts on immigration.

  23. There’s some much to say.

    Although I personally like many people of Mexican descent; I don’t want to live in Mexico and neither do they with an exception. The Trump choice was easy.

    But 2nd and 3rd generations still benefit from illegal immigration; rentals, cheaper labor in resturants and bodegas. They want it both ways.

    Obama clearly said “You are citzens go out and vote” Not if you are, but you are. That was inexcusable.

    We have met the enemy and she is making the bed. Forget E-verify; its household help which floats the boat and e-verify will not make a difference. How do you think Pelosi’s grandson got to know Antionio? Her statements are probable cause for investigating several likely crimes, she and other have no clue. The Zuckerbergs of the world ride to the rescue of their employees who need child care and housework; to relieve Zuckerberg guilt and make more time available for the benefit of facebook.

    The 2018 elections will be tough, because every beneficiary of illegal immigration will be driving the Consuela to the polling places to make sure she votes.

    Obviously the way to respond to this is to form an insular ingroup and bash the invading ingroup.

    Good luck with that!

    Affluent (but non-elite) whites are incapable of forming an effective ingroup. All they care about is the money. Only when they are laid low and pauperized will they expel the invaders.

    Back in the 1800s when food was scarce — and life was short & brutal — whites didn’t let Mexicans do anything but retreat.

    In the future American whites will be so poor, so insular, so mean, so angry, so violent, so aggressive, that the other races will once again be terrified and simply retreat.

    The Germans after WWI were pauperized. Hungry white people!

  26. A foreign government sends 20-30 million people into another country and then brazenly lobbies for them to control the government of the occupied country. Just 75 years ago that would have been grounds for all out war.

    Even today if a white country were doing that to a brown country the UN would be calling for sanctions and military intervention.

    You’d be hard-pressed to find a more credentialed sports executive than Terdema Ussery. A Princeton graduate, he eventually served on the school’s Board of Trustees. He earned a master’s degree from Harvard and a law degree from Cal-Berkeley. After a few years in a white-shoe law firm, Ussery left legal practice for a career in sports and quickly arrowed to the top of the profession. He was only 32 when, in 1991, he was named commissioner of the CBA. Two years later, he was named president of Nike Sports Management, a division aimed at serving as the agents for Nike’s athletes.

    This is a very common pattern: Black man or woman goes to a top or mid-tier law school, has a tough time because he or she was an affirmative action admittee, not dumb, just not up to snuff for the school, squeaks through, then gets hired by a top or mid-range law firm, and manages to pass the bar on the first or second try. The law firm needs black lawyers to bill some hours because of the dirversity requirements of big clients like Wal-Mart. But these guys never make partner and are gone in a few years. They end up as corporate general counsel, mostly farming work out to the real lawyers, or they leave law altogether, as with this guy from the Mavericks.

    Keep your eye open for this, blacks who went to law school or are lawyers, but aren’t working as such. Then do a LinkedIn search and look at their job progression. For extra credit, look at the state bar schedule and see if you can match it up with a sudden departure from their first job.

    In case you want to pretend to meddle there, one airport is pretending to fly you:

    Travel and Leisure says, without any sense of mockery, “Although the airport isn’t actually offering flights to the fictional land in East Africa, fans of the movie can get surprisingly close to Wakanda by traveling to, of all places, Atlanta.” (Apparently some of the movie was filmed at a studio there.)

    By a large margin now Mexicans are the dominant immigrant group in the nation. And that was no where close to being the case if one goes back just thirty years. For Mexico to send so many people in so little time to effectively become the largest immigrant source nation, bigger than the next two combined, is unreal. If this is not meddling in our affairs, I don't know what is.

    Mexico is meddling in America just as the William and the Normans meddled in England about 1,000 years ago, but at least they had a Hastings.

    The Mexican invasion is much worse. There were only a few thousand Normans at most and they had little genetic (long term) impact on England.

    Kinda on topic. Ann Coulter suggest reducing immigration would both reduce mass shootings and reduce the workload on the FBI.

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/21/ann-coulter-amazing-new-breakthrough-reduce-mass-shootings/

    But (and I know Ann reads Steve):


    There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent — 16 — were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.
     
    Teddy Kennedy's 1965 immigration act? Really Ann? I guess Hart Celler are not the Scotch Irish droids you're looking for, Teddy Kennedy is.

    Kennedy was quite obviously a face of the bill, and no one remembers who Hart or Celler were.

    Allan Wall has been covering this for years. But Fred Reed encourages us to welcome our new insect overlords.

    The last name “Wall”is particularly appropriate.

  36. This is Mexico’s revenge for Taco Bell.

    Why is Taco Bell so much more popular and successfully than Del Taco? Both are of course purveyors of processed, fast food, but the latter does in fact use fresh ingredients, real beef, cheese, produce, etc.; Taco Bell uses reconstituted goop which included some meat but a lot more soy and similar fillers, many of their products are chemical abominations, and yet they spank Del Taco such that the latter no longer exists, so far as I know, outside California (Del Taco used to have locations in Georgia when I grew up there).

    What does this admittedly vapid and silly topic say about the public which has vaulted the one chain to unimaginable success and relegated the healthier, tastier option to obscurity? (Taco Bell, Subway, and Starbucks are now the most lucrative fast-food chains; Taco Bell recently beat out Burger King for it's spot, which is itself noteworthy, since Burger King's broiled burgers are healthier than the fried ones from McDonald's or the chemicals peddled by Taco Bell....)

    It occurred to me today that we effectively have formed a European Union-style labor pool with Mexico. When the US economy is doing well more workers come north, keeping wages low. When the economy tanks, like it did in 2008, workers go home to see what they can find.

    I don’t recall approving a treaty or other agreement...

    Send them home. Every damned one of them.

    Well, in a way you can’t fault Mexico for looking out for their interest. Lots of money is send home. I think Trump would be smart to pushed Mexico to denationalized Pemex. Mexico main problem is poor oil refineries. Maybe, Trump should get Rick Perry to do this since Texas and Mexico are involved in oil projects.
