Last month, I received an email from a young Mexican, “I am a DREAMER (I find the term infantilizing) someone who was brought to the U.S as a child illegally and raised here. I received a work permit through DACA, I can only work legally, I can’t step out of the country and step back in as of now, and previously I would have to apply for special permission and pay the government $600 dollars to do so. I have managed to become a university student and it is my senior year. Given that, I plan to go to Mexico after I graduate and never to return to the U.S. Some people were born to be immigrants and I was not one of those people.”

“DREAMER” comes from the the DREAM Act, which is an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. It was introduced by two senators, Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), in 2001, to eventually grant residency to illegal minors living in the United States.

In 2019, the DREAM Act remains, well, a dream, and it’s unclear if it will ever pass. Its opponents reject all illegal immigration, and don’t want to set any precedent enabling more of it. Its supporters depict the issue morally. The New York Times has published many passionate editorials defending DREAMERS. On February 26th, 2018, for example, there’s Joseph W. Tobin’s “If You’re a Patriot and a Christian, You Should Support the Dream Act,” which begins:

The Gospel of Jesus Christ calls on us to welcome and protect the stranger. This should not be hard to do when the stranger is young, blameless and working hard to make this country a better place.

There are nearly 700,000 young men and women in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program who could soon be at risk for deportation. These “Dreamers” live in our neighborhoods, attend our schools, fight for our country and contribute to our workplaces. Our leaders in Washington, including President Trump, have a moral obligation to try to protect those who came to our nation as children with their parents, and who are Americans in every way.

“Young, blameless and working hard,” dreamers are already ideal citizens, Tobin tells us, so why should we cruelly and immorally deny their simple dream of becoming Americans? At least one, though, is saying, “No, thanks,” so let’s hear more from this young man.

Please talk about your family background, and how you arrived in the US?

I have no full-brother or sister. My parents met in rural Nayarit, only my mother is from there. That was where I was born, for reasons I do not know and am apprehensive to question. My father left my pregnant mother, but returned a couple of years later, but by then my mother and I had immigrated to the U.S. In early 1993 my mother and I had crossed into the U.S illegally/undocumented (the semantics don’t matter.) For clarity’s sake I will tell you how I was snuck in. I was placed in a crib in the car of a green-card holding aunt who had a U.S born child, and my cousin’s birth certificate was what was shown as proof that the baby in the crib can cross the border. My mother had to cross through the hills on foot like one usually imagines illegal crossings.

Once here, my mother and I had a tranquil existence, she would make good money working factory jobs in and about Orange and San Diego county. Things seemed to have been on the way up but unfortunately she got involved in an abusive relationship with a refugee from Latin America. In a quarrelsome household where one partner has legal presence and the other doesn’t, constant threats of deportation were made and that sword of Damocles is one that always hangs over our heads. From then on my mother would run away from the house taking me and my new half-siblings and of course she would be pursued by her abuser, this continued for years. Roughly the years where I was in elementary school to middle school, such an unstable childhood going from women’s shelter to unhappy homes again and again left me with the fact that by the time I finished high school I had gone to more schools than there are grades.

Where have you lived in the US, and what are you doing now?

Given such an unstable childhood, I have lived in numerous places in Orange and Fresno county and lived for a while in South L.A then at the time of middle school moved to an Appalachian community.

Currently, I am a senior in a “good” university on the East coast. I had it planned that I would have some sort of legal status by graduation, but outside of DACA I have no legal status. My mother does though, good for her.

Although you’re functionally and socially an American, you’re not one legally, so your integration has been very problematic and tension filled. Please talk about this process. How emotionally attached are you to the USA? And how are your bonds to Mexico?

First thing, I always knew I was illegal, it was something I had to always be conscious of, I don’t know anyone else who brought here illegally as a child who did not always know they were illegal. When school tests would ask for my social security number I always had to check with the teacher on how I should answer with the excuse “I don’t know my social.” I know exactly why I didn’t know my social, because I didn’t have one. I always knew I was illegal.

ORDER IT NOW

Other issues are that I never integrated into a larger immigrant community, because I was always moving around, there were times I lived in immigrant neighborhoods and times I lived in very multi-cultural (no sarcasm, families of all background’s inhabited them) woman’s shelters. I never sprouted roots

Given that background, there was always the darn hope for papeles, one day, one day we would get our papeles and our nightmare would be over, that was our religion our hope.

Starting in high school my family situation finally more or less settled down. My family moved to a very white and rural area, a place that would make you think why the fuck are there Mexicans here and why would they move here. I finally made long term friends, white americans, who I didn’t have to abandon after a couple of months. My high school had very few Latinos, so I was friends with rednecks and edgy white kids. This is the time I was very functionally and socially an American doing American teenager things, but of course I had the burden of illegalness and crushing extreme poverty.

Being poor and not having a social security number really limits what one can do for fun (no money, no driver’s license, no car.) So I read, nonfiction books and articles online and at the library.

It was that habit that led me to question whether I could be and should be an American. And it was also what kept me busy during high school. Teenage delinquency wasn’t for me because I had been taught that as soon as a police officer shows up me and my mom were to be deported (the worst of all fates). Crushing poverty and lack of driver’s license also made buying teenage me a car a non-starter. So I was considerably less mobile and much more cautious than regular teenagers. That doesn’t mean I didn’t drink, smoke pot, or any other teenage stuff, it just meant I was completely reliant on friends with cars. Avoiding legal troubles wasn’t difficult for me, for one I dislike weed and I was simply on the road less often than most. Most of my U.S born cousins have been caught with weed in their cars.

Either way, I spent much time contemplating why everything is so fucked up, why did the U.S invade Iraq? Me and my mother knew it was a bad idea, why didn’t Bush? Like many teenagers who liked to read I became a stereotypical anti-American teenager. Before I continue I do have to say that after graduating high school and getting a work permit I have had older white co-workers in low paid jobs who were incredibly welcoming and humane, who saw me as a fellow American and took an interest in seeing me succeed. These people represent the best of America and they do exists, but they exist in shockingly low numbers and the larger institutions of this country are built to end such personalities from public life.

Entering the workforce at the bottom of American society doesn’t give one much hope or optimism for this country or for one’s future, having been sold on the idea of getting a university education and having applied and been accepted into universities, but not being able to go because the schools were public and thus no aid is available to illegals even though thanks to daca I do have a social security card, before daca I couldn’t even apply to colleges, what does one put down when applying to college from a U.S address and the form requires a social? I finally learned about some private universities that were need blind even for international students and I applied and got accepted into one.

If one is expecting this part of the story to be one where I go out and have the American college life and fully integrate. Something kind of like that has happened. In my experience young Americans have college years they can’t call golden and quite a few feel alienated from this society. I am the same, I feel alienated. During college I took advantage of library resources and my free time to read more, and I became even more pessimistic about the future, I also had more brush-ups with the bureaucracy of the university and saw the pessimistic ideas I read about are pessimistic realities.

You talk about having kind white coworkers, but what about love interests? Your mother loved a man who was here legally, and he used her illegal status against her. What about you? Has your illegal status gotten in the way of having a relationship with anyone?

I have only had one love interest and legal status had nothing to do with it or it ending, maybe it has a little to do with it because I have never felt like I could provide the life I would want for a family. I couldn’t provide the life I wanted for myself, how would I be able to provide it to myself and a girlfriend?

Being an illegal has taught me to not talk about myself and given such an unstable childhood I don’t have a hometown or really any place I can say I am from. Therefore friends and girlfriends don’t know I am illegal. But during college and after daca I did open up about it, but not to everyone. And in general people don’t know where I am from, not that I could answer that question with a short reply or pick a point on a map that I can call my hometown.

Your life as an illegal, then, has been highly unstable, stress-filled and uncertain, and the DREAM Act gives you little hope, not that you would necessarily embrace it, for you have decided to go home.

ORDER IT NOW

This leads to why on Earth would I go back to Mexico. For one and maybe to present a ray of light in this interview is that my father’s side of the family contacted me during my college years and want me to go. Honestly without a middle-class Mexican family welcoming me back with open arms, I would probably remain here trying to survive in a culture that rubs me wrong in so many ways(this is worthy of a whole other article).

My mother’s side of the family is poor and has basically left Mexico en masse, I have an aunt and a cousin and my maternal grandparents living in a rural community where the average age is 60+ and the young people have all moved to the U.S. Returning to them with no capital would be useless. If I had not been contacted by my father’s family I would work until the permit expires then go back with some savings in hand and try to make the best of it.

What draws me to Mexico is my father’s family and some personal experiences that contradict the narrative about Mexico from Mexican immigrant. If one is to believe the immigrants from Mexico, one would never leave the U.S. The U.S is a great noble country with no corruption, rule of law etc. And Mexico is the opposite it is basically unliveable. However I will share something I rarely share. I have been to Mexico. After graduating high school and before DACA was announced. I went to Mexico, I worked in a border factory for a couple months then went to Nayarit. And it was amazing. I felt like an actual human being, the first ever official government ID I ever had was credencial de elector I received at the age of 18. I also felt middle-class I didn’t feel like I was at the bottom of society, but that I was right at the center. All feelings of being a marginal individual vanished. I was as free and equal as anyone else.

Someone once described poverty as one continuing crisis, and when I went to Mexico the crisis ended. I also saw that I could achieve more as a legal Mexican citizen in Mexico than an illegal Mexican in the U.S. The poverty I live through here in the U.S is ridiculous. My maternal grandparents have a nicer home in Mexico than my mom has in the U.S. But after six months in Mexico I returned to the U.S, because I was still a wandering 18 year old and all my closest family members are in the U.S and once I was in Nayarit it seemed like the thing to do. But the emigre myth of horrible unliveable Mexico was shattered by my experience there.

One reason I was so happy to be back in Mexico was that I was 18, living on my own and 3/4 of my income was disposable. Sure it wasn’t a lot of disposable income but it felt like a lot. Having all that gave me a nice taste of adulthood. Here in the U.S expenses are high, and everything is so damn competitive, there is so much pressure to be better in all aspects, to achieve ever more and if that fails one must consume ever more. Mexico felt like a place where I could just be. The jobs I worked here in the U.S were so damn demanding eating into my weekends, requiring half-hour or longer commutes and paperwork. In America low-wage manual temp workers are required to do paperwork, apparently managers are too stupid or too lazy to manage parts, production and what not. Being managed by dumbasses is one thing, it is a near universal experience nowadays, but being limited by law to remaining in such a position is fucking bullshit. But now I recognize even with legal status social mobility is shot, your birth determines your status in life. It is the American inability to face this fact, to deny reality and dismiss it, that is turning it into a decaying empire.

In Mexico I met people whom I could not have met in the U.S, Mexicans who had zero interest in going to the U.S and some who had gone to the U.S and disliked it and never wanted to go again. Growing up in an immigrant household that dealt with such heavy burdens and problems, I thought that if we are dealing with this awful situation (domestic violence, grinding poverty, constant fear of deportation, constant moving) instead of being in Mexico, Mexico HAD to be worse, why else would anyone choose my life in the U.S.

Also learning about Mexico from emigres gives you a really distorted view of Mexico. While working in the border factory I was talking to a buddy about how I was fucked for not having U.S legal status, he asked what would I do with legal status. I said “I would become an accountant,” my co-worker scoffed and said, “you could do that here.” It hit me, Mexico was a real country with a real middle-class with mundane people such as accountants and the other jobs I thought only existed in “white” countries. Sure, getting paid in USD has been called life on easy mode, but pretty much any job that exists in the U.S exists in Mexico. I want to contrast that with the life I was showcased in the U.S all the successes in my immigrant community were working shit jobs, had fat, ugly wives and their point of pride was lifted trucks with excessive fake plastic silver trimming and tacky jewelry. Tacky jewelry and lifted trucks aren’t enough to convince me to live in the shadows and be limited to low-end jobs. For that matter neither are hi-end sports cars or folding smartphones enough to convince me to stay. I would rather be poorer than an American working a shit job but have more dignity at work and in society than an American shit job workers has. I was searching for the dignity that an illegal immigrant trades-in when they decide to come. I want to be clear I am talking about those who DECIDE to come, not those who pretty much are forced to come, people unfortunate enough to have to choose between dignity and life.

ORDER IT NOW

One question you might have about Mexico is about security. Honestly, I felt more fear in the U.S, due to the threat of deportation, than I did in Mexico. I was there during Calderon’s drug war, so things were bad on the news. But the attitude Mexicans had about it was, that the only people who get killed by cartels are people who are part of cartels. If you don’t get involved in such things, it doesn’t affect you.

Something that has been on my mind recently is that I am a Mexican in America and there exists in America the image of the Mexican in America and it is not a good image. To make sense of that word salad consider the image that comes to mind when one thinks of the name Juan Rodriguez. One assumes a landscaper, janitor or other low-wage laborer, if Juan Rodriguez has a college degree, one assumes an affirmative-action student who wasn’t really deserving of the degree or acceptance into university. Juan Rodriguez is not a professor, not a lawyer, not a blank slate like the name John Smith. Contrast that to Mexico or any other hispanophone nation, Juan Rodriguez is a blank slate, Juan could be anyone a lawyer, a millionaire, a doctor whatever. Of course in the U.S there exists doctors etc. with the name Juan, but people always seemed to be surprise to find that out about Juan. Don’t jump on me with criticisms of statements I never made. Juan in the U.S probably (I use the word probably because I haven’t verified it) fits the stereotype of being a low-wage laborer. I just want to illustrate I don’t want to deal with the burden of the image of Juan in the U.S. But I don’t want to take away from the struggles of poor Americans. The name John Smith doesn’t give any real benefit, and in general if you are born poor in the U.S you are fucked, whatever your name is.

I came to the U.S and now I am close to finishing my degree I don’t see much future here as a Mexican, especially as an illegal Mexican and even as a hypothetical American. This is a decaying empire, a toxic(don’t imply this to mean SJW sympathies) culture, and quite frankly (and I feel at liberty to say this because it is unz.com, so far this interview seems like it could be published anywhere else on the internet, but I must say the following) this country is Jewish, in all ways in thinking, in the distribution of power and wealth. I can’t find it within myself to be part of a country that supports Israel and other inhumane actions. Especially when the country is basically telling me to go fuck myself with the signals of low-wages, rising costs, police impunity, crooked justice system and government, surveillance state.

And I must add I truly fear for Mexicans in the U.S there is so much vitriol and hatred out there towards us and I don’t see it de-escalating. Why be poor in the U.S and deal with all the aforementioned issues, when I can be poor in Mexico and live more freely. America has avarice and greed as culture and that is not me, even if I was guaranteed a 100K salary, I would still leave. I also thank my lucky stars that I have someplace to go to, I truly feel for the African-Americans, they have nowhere to go.

I only speak for myself, despite my desire to get the hell out of here. I understand the plight of other DREAMERs, I know how living in an immigrant community fills your head with ridiculous misconceptions about Mexico coming from trusted family members who have lived there, and if you can’t trust them who can you trust? These DREAMERs find themselves in between a rock and a hard place, some are really scared as fuck to go back because of the misconceptions and others are just woefully unprepared with no family to welcome them back.

During my time in Mexico my one maternal uncle who did not migrate congratulated on coming back, he said it was good that I returned because many emigres in his words become “afraid of Mexico” and I would not be. Their fear is very real although based on distortion and myths. The even more sad cases are DREAMERs who have fully Americanized who would die and fight for this country and view it as their homeland and manage to identify with it. They are truly fucked for reasons completely out of their control. Which is why I favor DREAMER legalization, it is simply the right humane thing to do. That doesn’t mean I am not wary of the problems it might cause, but to deal with illegal immigration you have to go after employers and stop giving birthright citizenship and marriage visas. Without those things immigration would just plain stop, the other thing is the imperial nature of U.S foreign and domestic policy. Move away from a system that requires cheap labor and that requires whatever it was that motivated the brutal U.S sponsored violence in Latin America and the world. I have joked with my friends about why Sweden doesn’t send all the refugees particularly Afghan and Somali refugees U.S policy has created, to the U.S. Why should Sweden pay for the U.S’s mistakes, or for that matter the Afghan people pay an even worse price than Sweden?

About my emotional ties to the U.S, how could I have any? Of course I will miss my friends and family. I don’t want to live here but I would like to easily cross the border to visit friends and family, but we have to play the cards we are dealt. I have to leave. As a Mexican, and as a Mexican with no legal status there is nothing I can do to change the path of this country. Only the Americans can do that

ORDER IT NOW

Like all people, in life I search for agency, and in the U.S I don’t have agency, my life choices are limited and so is my participation in the destiny of this country. My outlook for the U.S is pessimistic, I don’t see good things down the road, and as pessimistic as that is the odds of an illegal Mexican changing that are EVEN WORSE. Those being the sum of my heart and mind, it makes no sense to stay here. Leaving here is partly the renunciation of American life/culture and fleeing a sinking ship all wrapped in a layer of having never belonged here.

I want to address something I hear and find to be counter-productive arguments for immigration control. I hear many worry about immigration because they don’t want brown grandkids. On its face the argument is laughable, the people responsible for preventing brown grandkids are the grandparents, it is not anyone else’s job. Secondly, open borders (which I am against) is perfectly compatible with having white grandkids. One can have both, so it is not even an anti-immigration argument.

The reason I find this argument destructive is that it distracts from the real problems with immigration and subtly calls for the extermination of dark skinned people, if you can’t keep your children from race-mixing and want white grandkids the only other option is to eliminate other races, let’s be honest no one is calling for minorities to sign anti-race-mixing pledges or punishment for whites who race-mix, they simply want to not take responsibility for their grandchildren’s skin color. Lack of confidence in your childrearing abilities or laziness about it is a horrible reason to ethnically cleanse an area.

Another very destructive argument is that if America was to become majority non-white it would mean the end of all good things about America. This argument is destructive because it assumes a foreign force is the source of all problems in America and assumes that positive aspects about America are not illusions or in advanced decay.

It wasn’t high levels of brown people that created the disgusting caricature of Left politics in America known as the New Left, it wasn’t brown people that made the U.S a greedy and avaricious nation, it wasn’t brown people that made the U.S a staunch ally of Israel since its founding, it wasn’t brown people who ended community sentiment. Of course the U.S has become more brown, but it is not a case of correlation being causation. The internal problems were initiated and America became worse THEN it started becoming browner.

But if you focus on the two destructive arguments I outline the core internal problems can never be confronted. One example is imperial war, I will forgive the U.S for Mexican-American war, but the Spanish-American war is unforgivable and signals that there is an internal problem that goes back long before it could be blamed on brown and black people. How the fuck are you going to complain about brown people and ignore when you cross an ocean to take the Philipines and sail the Caribbean to take Puerto Rico and then by force keep it as part of the U.S. There was a Puerto Rican independence movement, and the U.S decided to destroy it. That is the height of hypocrisy of a country that supposedly wishes to keep its brown population low.

My last message is to the Americans and the patriots, please try to end the empire and become a republic. Try to supersede the divisive narratives and focus on the true issues of greed and lack of humanity. This is not intended to distract from other issues, such as immigration. I think immigration should end. End birth-right-citizenship and marriage visas, along with all other visas. But overthrow your media, refuse the culture-war stories and focus on the real stories of graft, corruption, useless wars and greed. The true culture war requires having the balls and maturity to make moral judgements and look beyond the clickbait ragefuel that distracts from who controls you. Practice critical thought, question your media and the elites. Stop uncritically accepting political agendas and talking points of talking heads. Stop letting your reality be created/experienced for you. America is pretty crooked and fucked but the majority don’t see it. At least third worlders admit their problems, but Americans can’t, they always blame someone else. Stop blaming others, you are one of the greatest superpowers in history. Introspection will go a long way. I am not calling for the false self-criticism of white guilt, I am calling for the self-criticism needed after a self-inflicted catastrophe.

You’ve decided that Mexico would be better for you, but what do think that Mexico itself has a bright future, and if so, why? You agree with me that the US is in trouble, so do you think that Mexico will do better than the US in the long run?

I think no one would ever nuke Mexico, so that is a plus, also Mexico’s population growth is slowing and it is doing better. China and Japan used to bleed tons of migrants and now they are leading the world. Mexico may have passed its bleeding migrants phase and moved onto a development phase. In the U.S I won’t be able to provide the rural and autonomous lifestyle I want for me and a possible wife. It is kind of ironic, because that is what my grandparents had. The allures of life in America, the expensive trinkets have zero draw on me. I have fallen out of love with the U.S. A cheesy metaphor was that I was in arranged marriage to the U.S but I saw her face and am now running away. Back to the point, I don’t think Mexico will become a superpower, nor would I want it to, I just think my future is brighter there than here. And I think even my american-born half-siblings futures are brighter there than here. Who knows what the future holds for the U.S but it just seems like an expanding pauper class, I do see a simple satisfying life being out of reach for an expanding number of Americans. Sure Mexicans can’t become admirals with aircraft carriers under their command, but they can live simple meaningful lives (I cautiously assume.)

  3. Lo says:

    Some things he says are true, that said, inequality in Mexico is actually slightly worse than the US (which is a shame for the US). He is forgetting the poor of Mexico escaped Mexico because of poverty inflicted on them by their compatriots. Otherwise, Mexico is a middle-income country, it is just that the rich in Mexico is no less greedy than rich in the US. Thus for them, it is still better to be in the US, as a poor but well fed illegal immigrant than be in Mexico as a poor and hungry Mexican. But, he will do well in Mexico with a US degree.

    That aside, looking forward to another of Vietnam essays Mr. Dinh. Hope you are doing well over there. Your essays truly reflect the human condition in Vietnam.

  4. “A cheesy metaphor was that I was in arranged marriage to the U.S but I saw her face and am now running away.”

    Be glad you’re not a citizen, because the US behaves like a crazy ex-girlfriend stalker when a citizen expatriates.

    I’ll support DREAMERs being fully legal in the US when I can walk into Mexico or any of the other source nations and set up shop or collect public benefits without any limits by the host nation to stop me from doing so. Mexico has one of the tougher immigration regimes, and they actually have the temerity to enforce it.

    Mexico also has a cynical public policy of fobbing off their problem cases by exporting them to other countries rather than providing adequate opportunities or public assistance that might give them a chance to make a good go of it back home. If his Madre had not hauled him to the US, it is not clear how his Mexico story might pan out.

    No longer just a “black thing” I hate to say.

    Most working class whites are as fed up with the USA is it’s possible to be, and got nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. And legally deplorable. Therefore nothing done to a white can ever be a hate crime.

    Biggest hurdle? Conservatives. Pigs, all of ’em. Liberals might be dizzy or sick, but the Olde Tyme respectable right is circling the toilet right about now. A recent article by the petrified dinosaur shit drip George F. Will has it that “protectionists” are about to ruin the country, as if they can do more than the banksters have already done. George talks about a $30,000 car as “inexpensive”. What???

    The young fellow you’ve interviewed is right on the money, Linh. The phony economic boom is crunching up against our offshore Elite who wants Mister Populist Trump to bomb Iran, making sure the part of the USA not glowing in the dark a decade from now will be an economic basket case. We’re fukked and Mexico and Canada will have a real ugly pothole range to separate them… forever.

    Fascism is not the final stage of capitalism. The final stage of capitalism is infinite evil coupled with infinite stupidity. We now have billionaires who produce nothing bugging everyone. Why? To blackmail them into doing ever more idiotic things to turn the whole North American mid continent into a target.

    When the day comes, all the enemies we’ve made can’t miss a target that big. Your pal has a great plan: Mexico has a future. Likewise Canada. Russia. Iran. China. Vietnam. Etc. The USA? Nope.

  6. @byrresheim

    it wasn’t brown people that made the U.S a greedy and avaricious nation, it wasn’t brown people that made the U.S a staunch ally of Israel since its founding, it wasn’t brown people who ended community sentiment.

    One of your best Linh Dinh. Thanks, been waiting impatiently for something from you for sometime.
    Thanks.

  7. All of them should go back.
    I don’t care about their sob stories.

    The border is open because (((globalists) hate white people, period.
    It has nothing to do with economics.

  8. Sorry, but people who entered USA illegally should be hunted down and expelled. New trespassers should be thrown out with no due process. Asylum seekers must enter at designated locations or be thrown out likewise. The absurd “anchor-baby” ruling and chain immigration must be overturned. Anything less will lead to USA’s self-destruction.

    In the unlikely event that this young “Juan Rodriguez” interviewee is an actual person and not just another of Uncle’s stimulating fictional characters, he should be immediately hired by ICE to feature in TV, radio, social media & billboard ads to be broadcast all over Mexico & Central America 24/7, warning would-be illegal aliens about how their future is much brighter where they are than it would be here in the U.S. “working shit jobs” with “fat, ugly wives” and “lifted trucks with excessive fake plastic silver trimming and tacky jewelry.” Maybe that’s the silver lining in a clouded U.S. society where “everything is so fucked up” & “with an expanding pauper class”: it might make it more unattractive to all of the caravan hordes surging North in ever increasing numbers. It might even be a price worth paying to end this renewed flood of alien invaders.
    And if that’s not enough to keep them away, then also remind them that Joseph Tobin & other liberal do-gooders will always be trying to hug them & fawn over them in public for their own virtue-signaling reasons. That should do it. Juan Rodriguez, wherever you are, STAY HOME!

    How the fuck are you going to complain about brown people and ignore when you cross an ocean to take the Philipines and sail the Caribbean to take Puerto Rico and then by force keep it as part of the U.S. There was a Puerto Rican independence movement, and the U.S decided to destroy it. That is the height of hypocrisy of a country that supposedly wishes to keep its brown population low.

    if all you have to complain about is something that happened over 100 years ago, you have nothing

    and don’t pretend like Americans don’t want Puerto Rico to have independence – the lies YOU PEOPLE have to tell yourselves to pretend you’re some kind of victim while you help yourselves to free education, free section 8 housing, free welfare, free medical etc etc ALL AT WHITE PEOPLE’S EXPENSE

  11. A nation of immigrants cannot be anything but Uber competitive. Their culture transforms to “dog eat dog” when they arrive in the new country as they are under immense pressure to survive.
    And these societies are composed of people who have broken all ties with their home land, and bring just a tiny patchwork of culture that is soon subsumed by the larger society they inhibit.
    This is the period when they learn to swim or drown. The swimmers of the family keep the half drowned deadbeats afloat for a period and then, after a few years or decades, the dog paddlers are left behind.
    Conspicuous consumption and aggression in an immigrant society is a given if the race is uniform and nationalities diverse; But as in America and other countries populated by black/brown/white colonists, culture is a side dish and can be consumed only when survival of the race is assured and protected.

    As I read the interview I imagined the same sort of questions asked of an American citizen who was smuggled into Mexico by one of his American parents to live (I have a friend whose older American relatives were sent to Mexico like this due to their father’s legal/criminal fears.)

    So boo-hoo. No doubt it is tough to live anywhere w/o legal status. If your parents dress you like a girl and treat you as one, but you’re not, yes that creates numerous problems. You can bemoan your fate but you only have a couple of choices. Stay and try to become legal or leave and enjoy Mexico.

    Especially if you feel persecuted or diminished as a Hispanic (though everyone gets ragged for their “race” these days) you can enjoy Hispanic majority life elsewhere, or move to S. Florida or S. Texas.

    You are free to knock the US and its culture, wars, govt. but so what? Your legal status doesn’t give your opinions any more weight. It might as in this case make you feel better about moving to Mexico, but that is a psychological gimmick, nothing more. Mexico isn’t hell and it isn’t perfect. Plenty of opportunity there, especially if you speak American English and understand American culture. And are educated to provide value added employment. That puts you up over millions of Mexican peasants and indigenous backward groups and tribes.

    What I want to read is Dinh’s interview w/ this guy in a year after he lives in Mexico. How much does he still despise the USA then? How about the Mexican government? Racism there? Plans to legally return to the USA? Discrimination against former Yankee immigrants?

    Personally I am in favor of legal “reciprocity” for immigrants. If Mexico permitted American citizens to stroll into Mexico and live there forever, enjoying free schools, health benefits, licenses, employment and property ownership the same way illegals here do, okay. Let the Mexican government offer that. Then they can bill the SS for retirement benefits, healthcare, Medicare for costs these illegal Mexicans incur from their system. And the US can bill Mexico for their citizens’ costs. And education for kids, etc. Let equality reign! And tax “remittances” sent across borders to cover other out-of-pocket illegal immigrant financial burdens. Both directions.

    No more “dreamers” and no more whining. Somehow I don’t think the Mexicans would go for that.

  15. Corporate America is angry because they might be forced to raise wages if millions of desperate foreign workers are no longer imported each year. They press their faux “left wing/liberal/progressive” media to support open borders, which is the most anti-worker policy imaginable. Most Democrats know this, but are terrified to speak the truth because their greatest fear is being called a racist, even though immigration harms poor American minorities more than any other group.

    Few Democrats know their leaders once opposed amnesty for illegals. One great Democrat was Barbara Jordan. Watch her 1995 speech explaining that immigration is not a right, but a privilege granted by American citizens in limited cases, and that “illegal immigration” must stop and violators promptly deported.

  16. I never hear about a “Dreamer” who is not a college student or a college grad, but when working at the Department of Human Services, I encountered a ton of illegal immigrants who most certainly were not college students, college graduates or in households with a full-time worker unless the fathers of the applicants’ children were working more hours (under the table) than the mothers of little US citizens reported……

    American citizens can get in a lot of costly and ruinous legal trouble for doing something like that, and no media violins play when that happens.

    You can’t qualify for all of the welfare programs that illegal immigrants with US-born kids are eligible for if you work hard, going over the earned-income limits for the welfare programs. It’s mathematically impossible. All of the illegal immigrants are working their fingers to the bones, say reporters, and yet, the US goverment spends $113 billion per year on illegal immigrants and their children.

    Our clients collected more per month in just free food for US-born kids than caseworkers with a required college degree made in week for a job with an 800-person caseload. That does not count their reduced-cost housing, their monthly cash assistance, their electricity assistance and their up to $6,431 in yearly refundable child tax credit cash. I could barely afford a miserable, one-room, shit-**** apartment in that job, and my tax return was just a few hundred dollars, not enough to cover even one major household bill.

    So many American degree holders — the young and the not-so-young, the citizens covered up in student loan debt and the ones with no student loan debt who still cannot afford rent on earned-only income from one person in a country where wages have been driven down for 40 years — are underemployed or out of the labor market.

    It makes no sense to claim that the labor of US citizens is not less valuable when so many noncitizens are allowed to chase jobs in the USA, especially when legal & illegal immigrants have access to layer after layer of goverment wage supplements that increase with each birth of an American citizen, making it easy for them to accept low pay.

    There’s little sympathy for all of the underemployed and out-of-the-laborforce citizens—basement dwellers, they are derisively called—even though none of them have the option of crossing another country’s border illegally, with financial rewards from A to Z accruing to them just for doing something they would have done in their personal lives, anyway: reproduction.

    The US citizenship of kids under 18 is being used as an economic pawn on a chessboard, even as the economic game for millions of US citizens is over, with no prospects for a restoration of a middle-class way of life. This is as true for many college graduates as for blue-collar workers. When America had a widespread middle class, far fewer people had a bachelor’s degree, and most degrees still had economic value.

    Today, except in a few fields, degrees are a dime a dozen. When your country’s labor market is flooded with noncitizens (and welfare-subsidized single moms, plus moms with ample spousal income) willing to work for low pay due to their unearned income, a degree loses value and leverage, just like hard-won blue-collar skills.

    Too many people with unearned income related to womb productivity are willing to work for less in the USA. This is amplified by so much computerization. Advanced software has simplified many jobs, enabling many more people with no higher education to perform jobs previously reserved for degree holders. In past eras, complex things had to computed by hand.

    Computers also enable them to do the work in fewer hours, thereby keeping many under the earned-income limits for multiple, pay-per-birth, womb-productivity-based welfare programs (and refundable child tax credits).

    But there aren’t as many degree holders in Mexico. There’s also likely not as much computerization. The degree this “Dreamer” got in America—presumably with no debt—might be much more valuable in Mexico despite the lack of EEOC hiring / retention privileges in a country where a “Dreamer” job applicant won’t be in a protected minority group.

    If memory serves, exports to the US account for 30% of Mexico’s GDP, then, in random order, there is the drug trade, tourism, and remittances. If the American economy declines, the suffering economies of other countries that rely on a strong US economy, but also do business with Mexico, will weigh down on it too. That 2000 mile border is Mexico’s lifeline, if the US turns down, so will its neighbour, and likely much harder.

That is the height of hypocrisy of a country that supposedly wishes to keep its brown population low

    First of all, just because the U.S. took the Philippines and Puerto Rico from Spain doesn’t mean we wanted their people here. I’m pretty sure the rationale for these imperial moves was to blunt British and European maritime influence, which was a big concern in 1898. It certainly was not to encourage jungle imbeciles to emigrate here. Obviously, in retrospect it was a disastrous, catastrophic move.

    As for the “Puerto Rican independence movement,” much of it involved terrorism (shooting up of the Capitol, bombings, etc) which kind of takes the charm out of the equation. I’d dump Puerto Rico (and its flag-waving critters here) in a heartbeat. Give them their independence, see how things turn out for them.

I’m an American who has a nearly 50 year history in Mexico, on and off, and, right now, on, for several years. I have a kind of reverse experience than you do, but nowhere near the depth of poverty you did. But I will tell you this, you will be coming back to a country that is not based on greed, having “things” more than anybody else and a Khardasian (sp.?) view of the world.
    You will be coming back to a country where you will find a sense of community that hasn’t existed in decades in the the United Sates. Mexico has always been a country of manners, among themselves and to foreigners. And it still is. It is a country of community, which is one of the things I love about it most.
    Yes, the cartels are a big problem, but on an individual basis, only if you put yourself in that playground. Yes’ corruption is a big problem, but only if you don’t realize the United States isn’t the most corrupt country in the world — just legalized. Nevertheless, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed, albeit it will be incrementally. No president will ever solve it in six years.
    You will be coming back to country of incredible natural beauty and diversity, one that is awakening to just how much it has to offer.
    You will be coming back to a country that doesn’t want to control its neighbors or the world, just one trying to deal with its own problems.

    The reason the interviewee doesn’t have a sense of community is because he is neurotic about being caught of for illegally being in a country where he shouldn’t be. It is not his fault, it is his mothers for subjecting him as a child to a life in fear for something he doesn’t have any control of. Of course going back to Mexico is going to be a positive experience, he is experiencing his oikeiôsis for the first time by being amongst his people, in his native country, having political power such as the right to vote, and not having to carry the chip on his shoulder of being illegal. Perhaps if en masse all South American’s returned to their natural countries instead of hundreds of thousands coming month in and month out American’s could have the ability to create their own community instead of representing only 61% of their own country. America is behind some of the worst offenses in the world currently and Western society has become inherently corrupt – though it is a bit rich to slag off America, as a non-American, a country that has provided to you a decent education and then proclaim how good Mexico is. I have nothing against Croatia, Kenya, Chile etc etc because I have nothing to do with them, if you’re not American it’s not your problem to complain about how terrible it is compared to your country. It seems disrespectful to blame America for your woes, for your rootless and powerless existence in America when realisitcally your Mother subjected you to this and caused you to bear such a burden.

But the walls of the break room were still covered with pictures of scenes from Mexico.

We just slaughtered our way into what is considered “respectability,” “civility,” “democracy” and “freedom.” The same false crap we’ve been hammering home throughout the world through propaganda today — in order to steal someone else’s stuff.

    I’m going to stray off topic for a moment, because you did. Perhaps if the United States didn’t try to overthrow any leader who was trying to do something for the indigenous people of whatever land south of the border in order to install some rich, corrupt, murderous SOB who does our bidding, maybe, just maybe, we wouldn’t see this problem on our border (most recently Hillary’s coup in Honduras in 2009, and Venezuela now — let them sort it out for themselves). Maybe, just maybe, if we didn’t try to corrupt poor people with ‘streets paved with gold’ propaganda — as we have done forever in order to get our way — they might stay home.
    The U.S. has created this problem, just as it has created most of the problem in the Middle East, and, in your words “slagged” it off to Europe, accepting virtually none of the refugees and, then criticizing Europe for the ensuing problems they have with the influx. That’s gall.
    Just for your edification, my mother had nothing to do with my “woes,” as you put it, about the country. By the time I was 11-12, i.e. Vietnam era, I was realizing for myself just how despicable the foreign policy was and is.

I can’t find it within myself to be part of a country that supports Israel and other inhumane actions. Especially when the country is basically telling me to go fuck myself with the signals of low-wages, rising costs, police impunity, crooked justice system and government, surveillance state.

Of course the U.S has become more brown, but it is not a case of correlation being causation. The internal problems were initiated and America became worse THEN it started becoming browner.

A stranger may be very well inclined to praise many of the institutions of their country, but he begs permission to blame some of the peculiarities which he observes – a permission which is, however, inexorably refused. America is therefore a free country, in which, lest anybody should be hurt by your remarks, you are not allowed to speak freely of private individuals, or of the State, of the citizens or of the authorities, of public or of private undertakings, or, in short, of anything at all, except it be of the climate and the soil; and even then Americans will be found ready to defend either the one or the other, as if they had been contrived by the inhabitants of the country.” – Tocqueville

    A good number of the African-American elite have always lived in Paris. Why Paris, I don’t know.

    In the Philippines you meet many African-American retirees on a modest pension. Some held fairly important positions of responsibility such as NCO in the army, or postal supervisor, or mechanic.

    But the bottom line is that the Philippines is actually more pleasant than the hood. Filipino police don’t bother people or act pissed-off and angry everyday like US police who patrol African-American neighborhoods. There is not some drug dealer always living next door with a steady flow of addicts of all races flowing coming in and out to get high. There are no gangs.

    Lot’s of African-Americans choose to live overseas but I would say the wealthy ones choose Paris-particularly women-while less wealthy choose SEA.

    He is correct. While the influx of undesirables from the poorest, most culturally backward, and (it must be admitted) toxic social strata from Mexico and Central America is indeed a major detriment to American society as a whole, these caravan people and other such illegal aliens are, ultimately, not the disease itself, but rather only the symptom.

    While white nationalists may bristle at the accusation, the personification of this terminal illness is their racial kinfolk who enact and, worse, proselytize their self-destructive gospel. Often on this site I read some self-satisfied eruption about the superiority of the collective white I. Q. Yet they fail to realize (or perhaps ignore) that it is their high-I. Q. racial confrères, their most successful elite kinfolk which have unleashed our present chaos upon the world. The sexual degeneracy, open borders, permissive criminal “justice” system, coddling of blacks, quasi-religious exaltation of drug addiction, infantilization of adults, revanchist feminism, coarsening of cultural discourse, anti-intellectualism, etc., etc. which augur the demise of everything noble and dear erected over the past two millennia are not the creations of the various dusky-hued denizens of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. No, this culture of death has been the creation of white elites, whose enthusiastic secular missionary work has been crucial in the destruction from within of disparate and unlikely nations such as Japan, Chile (once the most socially conservative country in the Western hemisphere, a kind of Ireland of the Americas), Germany, the Philippines, Colombia, Ireland, Finland, Taiwan, etc., etc.

    As I have said before, it is bad enough that Anglo-America is the cesspool that it is. But that the busybodies of these countries see it necessary to convert the benighted natives from the world over according to their thinking is what really infuriates me. More and more, one realizes that one cannot escape America—the empire is everywhere, with even its purported enemies aspiring to be like its citizens. Visit any South American country and one finds that even the most rabid “anti-American” listens to junk American music, watches junk American entertainment, models their dress on those of “glamorous” junk Americans, and regurgitates whatever ideology is currently in vogue in the states.

    At one point I lived in Mexico myself for an extended period of time. Honestly, I fell so deeply in love with the country—warts and all—that I came within a hair’s breadth of taking Mexican citizenship and renouncing my American one. (An unfortunate and unexpected family matter back in the U. S. which required my immediate attention ended my Mexican period.) The civility and warmth of your average Mexican is unlike anything one finds here; the care which sales staff, for example, typically lavish on customers has long been extinct here.

    In my case, I never encountered the problems that the interviewee faced. I was born here, but often have wondered why. Had my parents stayed in the old country, my chances at success would have been about the same, perhaps even better. At any rate, despite my birth citizenship and “white” appearance, I have always felt like a foreigner here. The things your typical Americans worship and hold dear, the way they think, and so on are so hilarious and repulsive all at once.

    It would make me happy to take pride in the country of my birth, but so many aspects of its people and leaders make that an impossibility.

    The border is open because some people would like a world without White people. The economics had nothing to do with their decision as you say. The economic incentives however do get other people to support open borders and basically White genocide for short term gain. It’s the same type of thinking that destroyed Zimbabwe and South Africa. Both those countries did better under sanctions than they do now as model Black run kleptocracies with no sanctions. The economic bait to end White rule worked and those who took it wish they didn’t now.

After billing Medicare a couple grand, the health providers billed me a $740 copay for the standard blood test, $100 to say hello to the doctor, $100 to come back after the blood test results, $100 to have blood pressure taken by an assistant, etc. There were some $1,500 in co-pays for the “free checkup”.

The whiter you can claim your blood to be, whether through Spanish or other white, European-based ancestry, the greater your social mobility is likely to be. Unfortunately, the Mexicans that try to migrate to the U.S. have bought into the propaganda the country is color-blind; that all you have to do is work hard and the world will be your oyster. It isn’t until they get to the States — legally or not — and discover the reality that the disappointment sets in.

    If I wasn’t clear, what I am saying is that each nation should bill the other for any benefits for retirees or others who incur those costs by the (now) host government. Obviously SS American beneficiaries wouldn’t be billed. But if Mexico ended up paying healthcare for retirees (for instance) they would bill the US govt for those. I understand that Medicare doesn’t pay for costs outside of the US.

    Likewise the American govt would bill Mexico for any costs paid for their illegals here in the US. This reciprocal idea isn’t just for retirees but for anyone “illegal” in either nation. So the economic burden primarily falls on the illegal immigrant (either American or Mexican) and their respective legal nation of citizenship.

    If the economic burdens of exporting citizens to other nations illegally was borne by their own national government there would be no incentive to encourage such immigration. In our current situation Mexico might collect something but the US would collect far more. Exporting Mexicans to the US would no longer be an economic windfall for them.

    No, my family is an admixture of mostly Basques and some Italians who arrived in the New World about five and three generations ago respectively. While it is likely that I have some distant kin still living in Spain, my family has had no direct connection with that country for over a century. (My Italian ancestors, who arrived from Naples circa 1900, never did, of course.)

    The Mexicans here in the U. S. for the most part are poor representatives of the actual Mexicans one finds in Mexico. That was a shock discovery for me years ago upon my first venturing to Mexico. I had been expecting to meet the same trash people that make life here rather unpleasant. How wrong I was. For the most part, the Mexicans I met, even the ones from humbler circumstances, demonstrated a civility utterly unlike their emigré compatriots. Which is not to say that Mexico does not have profound structural problems—it most certainly does. But so does the U. S., albeit of rather different natures.

    The complacency of Latin American regimes in using the U. S. as an escape valve to let out their most undesirable peoples is not only unfair and injurious to America, but also inevitably worsening their own situation by causing a drain of their brightest thinkers and talents, contributing to their national decline, thereby ensuring the continuance of this vicious cycle. Liberal do-gooders, rather than healing them, are instead performing their assisted suicides.

    What Latin American countries ought to do is suspend “human rights” and all such attendant ideologies, which are a poor fit for the region anyway, and conduct a mass culling of the criminal elements which are some of the main sources of the present migration upheaval. Some years ago in El Salvador, I think, over 50 gang members were simultaneously and accidentally (or is that “accidentally”?) electrocuted to death while standing about on the wet floor of the prison they were detained in. That incident could be highly instructional to a potential and much-needed Latin American Robespierre.

Thus for them, it is still better to be in the US, as a poor but well fed illegal immigrant than be in Mexico as a poor and hungry Mexican.

    The poor in Mexico are not starving, they eat quite well because of the much lower standard of living, better than the poor in America who may eat more but more bad food like fast food and become obese. The poor in America eat fast food because that’s all they can afford, and with 2 parents or single parent often having to work a lot, they don’t have time to prepare proper meals.

    I knew some Mexican college students in Phoenix who were in the US studying at Arizona State. None of them seemed in that much of a big hurry to remain in the US. They were all whiter than the average Italian-American and when asked of their roots most would tell me they were either Basque or Canary Islanders (Who looked a bit Arabic to be honest). Most were the grandchildren of Spanish who had fled the Franco regime. Unlike Anglos, they were not afraid of the Aztecs and Cholos and cringing in terror from the local Chicano who lived in the Guadalupe barrio.

    In all fairness however, it would seem that Washington DC props up the Creoles in countries like Guatemala and so of course the Indians like the two characters in that film “EL NORTE” are fleeing to the country ultimately responsible for their situation.

    I keep telling you folks, its the monopolies that have made the wealthy filthy rich.. eliminate copyrights, patents(article 1, sec 8 ([8] and enforce the Sherman and Clayton Acts and retrieve all of the public domain transferred out to private persons or corporations and nearly overnight America will be great again.

    Copyright and patents are the monopolies along with governmental resources being transferred into private hands, that have eliminated middle class competition in American (its that competition that made America great, not the assholes that run the place).. Capitalism requires a referee to keep corruption and monopolism out, <=which is the job of government: to keep the competitive game of capitalist economics playing strictly by the rules. The Jewish bankers and high rolling wall street dominate corporations have taken over the government and own all of the jobs, all of the copyrights, all of the patents, and all of the assets and businesses which once were government services provided to the people. and these bankers and corporations keep all of this to themselves. Since there are no real jobs left except in global wall street megacorp, and since those jobs are reserved for the children of those who already have them, the politicians have created work for the displaced in local governments; <=here the middle class is hired into government (<so those who have faltered are employed to make the rules and enforce the rules that control, limit and regulate "competitive ability"; these bureaucrats are doing such a good job the best can perform at mediocre, if at all. The quality of live in the USA rises only as far as those who govern permit.

    truer words have not be spoken “The phony economic boom is crunching up against our offshore Elite who wants Mister Populist Trump to bomb Iran, making sure the part of the USA not glowing in the dark a decade from now will be an economic basket case. We’re fukked and Mexico and Canada will have a real ugly pothole range to separate them… forever.”

    Vincente Fox is the grandchild of German immigrants to Ohio named “Fuchs” who moved to Mexico. His father is as German as Donald’s old man.

    I was under the impression that Vincente was from some old Spanish aristocratic family but no, his father’s parents were born in Germany and first arrived in Ohio before moving to Mexico.

    So…I am correct in stating that it is Latin American WHITE SUPREMACY that has resulted in whites in the US coping with the immigration crisis.

    If something were not done for Africans in the US there would be mass-cannibalism. If they could not get welfare to eat they would chow down on your family pet or your wife or grandmother.

    Alot of the tough guys on this commentary will say “let starving Hood Rats try and come to my house and eat me, I’m a big tough white guy and I can take them”…which may be true, but they would snatch women and children to stir into a cannibal stew.

    SOME of the schooling they get helps raise their IQ a bit. Would you prefer raids on white farms like South Africa.

    And again, you’re going to talk about what a tough white guy you are and “bring them on” and you’ll be loaded for bear…

    …Any expat knows this, Aaron. If you permanently live in Asia on $1000 a month and the most expensive food around is US fast food, believe me, you’ll go native.

    However, the difference is this.

    Number one, white poor people have no time in America. The lower class and lower middle class come home dog-tired and just want to eat as fast as possible so they can get in front of the television or get high or drunk and then go to sleep.

    Number two, fast food is intended to be addictive. It tastes better than what can be cooked at home. That is the intention of the franchise, to include various ingredients which hook the consumer on the taste. Of course with real gutter-crap like JACK IN THE CRACK or HOT N NOW it is so awful-tasting that this is debatable but people get hooked on fast food for the taste.

    Finally, cooking food requires some skills. You also have to clean up afterwards. Poor people who just finished a 12 hour shift don’t have the energy.

    This is what creates the huge demand for fast food in the US.

    BLACK POLICEMAN EXPERIENCE

    As a college student in Michigan I went into the Bay City, Michigan hood with a black friend once because he paid me to move his mother’s furniture.

    No problems there, but on our way out a City cop passed us in his police vehicle and D grew very afraid. The cop was black and D told me the officer’s last name but I forgot.

    “He’s crazy, he smokes crack” D told me.

    “The cop smokes crack?” I asked.

    “Yeah, he is always in a crack house down the street”.

    This black police officer in the hood would park his police car outside crack houses and go inside IN UNIFORM and smoke crack.

    People outside the ghetto have no idea how corrupt some black police are.

    Anyhow, as far as white police in The Hood are concerned, of course they are tense and irascible. They are waiting for a flower pot to drop off a roof onto their head or someone to snipe at them with a rifle or catch AIDS grappling with an HIV infected suspect. They don’t want to die anymore than you do.

    My point is that if you are a black ex-Sergeant and you can live in the Philippines on your pension and run a business there-the black expat I knew the best own a hot dog vending franchise in Cebu-then why would you stay in the hood?

    The fact that the US Hood is more dangerous than most Third World countries is a reflection of our internal third worlds.

    As for Filipino police, my only advice is not to marry one. When you marry a Filipino police woman she has all the power over you.

    We came back from the Grand Canyon, drove a circle around the whole thing, and the one constant was the government stripping the land and rights from everyone.

    You have the right to a bus seat with the Chinese taking photographs at the rim. The right to rent a hotel room.

    You can own the front range of the Andes in Argentina. We have half Filipino kids, so we are retiring there. You can buy whole islands.

    It is the child welfare agencies that are the most danger to us. Children belong to their parents in the Philippines.

    We were raided by child protective services for “teaching to walk too early”. Because we followed published science on early infant learning.

    So we fled to Philippines. Until we were no longer under investigation for teaching our kids to walk.

    To immigrate my wife was four years of living hell. For me to immigrate there is one piece of paper, one time.

    People that went through that immigration hell with us said they were glad. It was all worth it for freedom. Hahahaha! Can you believe it!

    Nothing proved better what slaves we are by going through immigration hell. Begging one agency after another, smirking bureaucrats loving making themselves impossible to find, to write, to call, to plead before personally.

    It took a congressman just to get the phone number for the Anchorage immigration office, and that is only a recording. It is impossible, absolutely impossible to call and reach a human being by phone.

    One agency, social security, insisting she did not have a right to a social security number. Another agency, USCIS, demanding she get a social security number or be deported.

    Four 900 mile trips for fingerprints, just one set. Because only immigration will accept fingerprints for immigration, except the FBI approves them and immigration cannot make fingerprints the FBI approves. Why can’t the FBI just take them?

    So when I reach retirement, we’re going. It is one piece of paper, one time for me and I’m in. Unlike the USA that made it hell for my wife.

    Now that she is here, the biggest fear she has is her kids being taken by government agencies, and given to child rapists as foster kids.

    One day your kids are taken from you for reckless endangerment because the car seat the law required last year is now an illegal, child-killing car seat.

    My gasoline cans are useless because companies got regulations requiring “spill proof” nozzles. Light bulbs that work are illegal. A crown is $400 in the Philippines, and $1,200 here.

    You can buy prescription drugs at an open-air counter staffed by a pharmacist in a lot of countries. Here, we travel 80 miles round trip for the doctor, who makes us wait for hours and hours while the prescription we get every year for the same sinus infections is sent to Wal Mart, where a pharmacist makes us wait 2 more hours to ask us if we can read the label.

    We are stupid tax and big pharma money cows.

    Do not make us spend hundreds of dollars more, and wait so much longer while the infection makes us sicker. Doctors will come to your house with medicine in hand for ten dollars in the Philippines.

    People have no idea how bad it is because they don’t travel internationally. The worst border treatment we receive is our own country. We don’t even take laptops back across, just leave them there because it is not worth the hassle.

    They will pull your pictures up, family photos, and grill you on who the people are.

    They do not even look at our bags coming in to the Philippines. Never. I get a year, no visa, no application, no fee, I just hand over my passport to be stamped.

    So…I am correct in stating that it is Latin American WHITE SUPREMACY that has resulted in whites in the US coping with the immigration crisis.

    It has been a major factor in Mexico and Central America at least, yes. Although a caveat needs to be applied here—the mestizos and natives are themselves complicit in this enforcing of racial hierarchies. Similar to blacks in the U. S., they are remarkably attentive to even the subtlest variances in skin tone, according great prestige to the lighter-shaded among them.

    There was an article (I think in the Associated Press) circa 2014 about perceptions of race in Mexico. A survey among schoolchildren found that the majority of them identified as “white”, even when they were not.

    Having dated quite a few Mexican-Americans in my time, I can personally attest to the schizophrenic mindset that plagues their collective mind: on one hand bellicosely proud of their heritage, on the other nursing a profound self-hatred. The number of these girls claiming to be “Spanish” to me—despite their appearance, let alone the fact that their parents were more often than not born in the poorest rural areas of the motherland—is eyebrow-raising. Even the darker ones are often hesitant to claim being Mexican, instead declaring themselves “natives” (i. e. Native Americans)—once again despite the actual truth of their family’s nationality.

    A rather curious phenomenon which, to my knowledge, does not really occur anywhere else in Latin America.

    Southern Cone countries, on the other hand, have traditionally comprised of large populations of whites. In Chile they account for something like 1/3 of the population or more; in Argentina over half. Why this occurred has much to do with the much milder weather of these regions, which in some places approximates that which is found in Central Europe, as well as those nations’ need to exploit the vast open spaces such as those found in the Patagonia. Both countries heavily encouraged European immigration well into the 20th century. Their national histories, as a result, are studded with all sorts of figures with Irish, English, French, Italian, Croat, German, etc. surnames.

    Because of that, as well as a particularly bloody conquest of those regions by the conquistadores, those countries have had less racial-related headaches, therefore no need for exodus. At least until recently. Their distance from the U. S. precludes a sudden influx of Argentines and such anyway.

    Why should white Americans bear the brunt of Mexico’s race problem?

    They should not, but the fact of the matter is that most of those who wield power here feel it necessary to coddle the waves of new arrivals. Not only do they commit injury against themselves, but they also economically imperil low-earning immigrants with increased competition.

    How come poor Chinese people have time? Time is an excuse and maybe even fast food propaganda, so is price and taste. The biggest lie about fast food is the name itself, it is not fast unless you live right next door to a fast food place. There are loads of dishes that can be prepared very fast as well.

    Number two, fast food is intended to be addictive. It tastes better than what can be cooked at home.

    I have never had the better fast food you mention, therefore don’t feel any addiction. Fast food even fails simple logic and price. You can eat steak, chicken, and vegetables for the price of a fast food combo item, at about similar or even less cost. It will be much healthier, tastier, just as fast and likely cheaper.

    Finally, cooking food requires some skills. You also have to clean up afterwards. Poor people who just finished a 12 hour shift don’t have the energy.

    Skills are vastly overrated, you need about 0 skills to make a burger or cook some chicken tenders, can’t people even use a spatula? The cleanup part is correct, but even the majority of poor people have dishwashers & not all families have two people working 12 hours shifts.

    This is what creates the huge demand for fast food in the US.

    Lack of willpower, ignorance, actually thinking that fast food tastes good, actually thinking that fast food is fast are all reasons. By the way, not even all fast food is evil, you can be perfectly fine eating big mac or whatever. The problem is that people cannot even stop themselves from having a giant HFC syrup pop and large fries / breadstick etc when they order stuff. Otherwise, the food itself isn’t evil in many cases, it the shit they order with it that makes it so unhealthy.

    I worked and lived in Cebu for 3 years….

    DWSD (DEPT. of SOCIAL WELFARE & DEVELOPMENT) says that kids stay with their mother until age 7. Period and end of paragraph.

    I know this because a British co-worker was married to an ex-bar girl who went back into the bars and got into “Shabu” and neglected her kids.

    A powerful Chinese-Filipino buddy of mine and also a co-worker tried to intervene but without success.

    You cannot buy an entire island in the Philippines for pennies. The going rate for an acre of decent property is $20,000 and Koreans/Japanese are raising the price by coming in and buying everything.

    At one point I worked for a Medical Tourism company in the Philippines run by a woman out of Missouri and her patients could come to Cebu and get their teeth fix or treated for a fraction of what it costs to drive to the doctor in their own city.

    My friend was married to an Immigration officer and he worked as a consultant getting foreigners out of scrapes. The only Westerners who get kicked out of the Philippines are complete A-Holes who should not be allowed to leave house arrest. Most were Korean Nationals who are the biggest jackasses in the Philippines. He handled one Korean who was busted for a gram of coke and did not want to leave the Philippines so he was able to work out a deal where the guy did jail time in Cebu but was able to remain there because of his wife and kids. He also handles one American who got angry at howling dogs and went around the Barangay with his gun shooting the neighbors dogs.

    I personally got involved with Ron the “Immigration Consultant” for Dave the retired Canadian. Dave married a horribly corrupt female PNP officer who took his passport and drained him of his pension and kept him trapped in his house. At one point I saw Dave’s state and being a connected guy I went over and talked to the female PNP officer. Finally I had Immigration come in and bust Dave for having no passport simply so he could get away from her and on a plane.

    There were also many cases Ron handled of land disputes because of course the law says the Filipino woman owns the land. Many older foreigners simply get kicked off the property they bought. On occasion there was one older foreigner I knew named Ken-an architect from New York-who built a hotel for $1,000,0000 for his Filipino wife. He was 60. She was 23. They began to argue about her boyfriends. Ken was thrown in the road by the security guards he’d hired for the hotel. He had no money and was robbed of everything the first evening on the street. Finally, I went to Ron and Ron’s wife leaned on the Filipina woman to at least give Ken his passport and bank card to get back to the US.

Don’t really get how fast food is tasty as well? All burger joints have substandard burgers, with some tasteless plastic-like cheese and sad greens & veggies. Fries all have a bitter taste because they are fried long before they are fried for the second time in the restaurant. That all said, it is not even the food itself, about all entrees at McDonald’s have acceptable calories. It is giant drinks and other junk that makes people fat.

    1) Unless you leave America when you are 25 like I did and have no kids and no dependents and no house you have a great deal to lose. Most people do not get fed up until they are 40 years old and by then they have kids and a house mortgage.

    2) You have to find a way to make a living overseas. This requires a college education or a skill or trade. Plumbers and electricians make $300 a month in the Philippines, tops. A good number of Americans and Europeans I met there were disability frauds. This is a good con and you can draw the check anywhere on earth. The disability frauds did so much screwing with Filipino bar girls that I doubt there was a serious problem with their vertebrae.

    3) You have to remember that you won’t get SS if you have not put in 10 or 20 years in the US. I just barely pulled 10 years in America plus I served two years in the Michigan National Guard Reserves before I moved overseas at 25 but I will basically be getting jack when I retire except what I have saved.

    4) You can never be a citizen of most countries and developing countries have no welfare system anyhow. The desirable countries like Australia or NZ or Canada make it very difficult for Americans to immigrate. You have to have some niche skill like sheep shearing.

    4) In the case of most poor whites they have no education and no money for a $1000 plane ticket. However, I’ve known many lower income whites who did move to the Philippines and cashed in their return ticket and got stuck there. One was a meth head named Bruce who had gone to Philippines simply because Meth is 50 pesos a hit there. He opened a bar but it did badly because he was always high and he ended up broke and had to borrow money to get home from his parents. I knew another foreigner named Clinton, a former oil worker, who was dyslexic and could even teach English. He’d been divorce raped and was facing homelessness in America anyhow. So when his money ran out he lived on the streets of Cebu for a few years. Filipinos would give him a bit of rice every few days but he gradually began to go nuts. Other Americans shunned him at McDonald’s because he was always trying to get money out of them. Finally, a bunch of us went to the American Consulate and told the Head that if the US Embassy did not get Clinton out he was going to die on the streets because by then he was going crazy and getting into fights with Filipinos at night. Finally Immigration picked him up.

    5) Many working class whites are drug users. So they cannot be sober long enough to get on a plane and go somewhere. They have to be near their meth or Opoid dealer.

    6) Many working class Americans are on parole or probation. So they cannot leave the state without permission.

    7) Many working class Americans are single parents or have kids they cannot afford. You meet quite a few guys in SEA on the run from child support or alimony.

    8) If you run out of money overseas and the Embassy HAS to get you home you won’t get another passport for like 5 years. And you have to pay the US government back.

    9) You can never be a citizen of most countries. You can live there for 40 or 50 years but you can be kicked out at any time. This happens to Westerners who have an ugly divorce with a Chinese-Filipina and she goes to Immigration and deports her foreign husbands.

    I’ve been overseas since 1999 and I am only 45. I know the ropes.

    America, its many cultures, and the human society of Americans is quite different from the USA..

    The disconnect between America, Americans and their once proud citizen willingness to help people from all cultures assimilate vs the USA and its global commercial economic take no prisoner, allow no competition Zionistic approach, which sees no problem in using and abusing humanity to achieve, establish and hold total economic superior-to-you approach shows through in the content of this interview..

    Many, particularly older, born in America, Americans, white or of color, often express similar feelings as the interviewee expressed here. Since 9/11 the older have become fearful for their safety and freedoms here in USA governed America, where such citizens were born, grew up, and experienced an honest, once protective, always apologetic government (most Americas rarely ventured outside of the USA).. Now these same Americans, feel anxieties: spied on rats in a cage, watched as they try to navigate the electronic virtual environment which has made them prisoners in a virtual cage and which requires them to function in an electronic maze at an impersonal interface separating citizen from USA law and its bureaucratic, impersonal, behavioural control and data-capture vulture systems that tracks their every move to induce them to buy something or other.

    These older or challenged citizens are often reminded they must carry and be prepared to present and give on demand an accounting of themselves at each USA::Citizen checkpoint (where do you live, what is your social, where is your passport, bring 2 IDs, proof of birth, proof of where you live, sign here under penalty of perjury, what are you doing here, where is your proof of insurance, what degrees do you have, do you have a license to breath, walk, think, repair or improve your home, does your license allow you to cut down this or that tree, to speak, to drive a car, to park here, and if that is not enough, these electronic and bureaucratic challenged citizens discover that their entire life’s history is available to anyone able to enter a name into a search engine.

    Every trip to the Doctor, Hospital, or Pharmacy requires presenting ones credentials, allowing the system to record their medical histories, to establish their personal ability to pay, and to reveal all that used to be considered private <=into the information cloud. Its just not American be forced to do that, I have heard many say, etc.). Doing business with the USA is an electronic challenge. Some I have even seen cry in frustration over, even when such citizens have no fear of their citizenship or insurance coverage status. Allowing one's lawn to appear unattended can bring a citation with the force of law; then, for many, it becomes a decision to cut the lawn or to buy food .. America has been transformed into a USA guarded prison.

    It’s just a matter of getting maybe a student visa and then a work visa and then an employer sponsor.And being in the right age range ,healthy, financially ok and no police record

    Asians have all this figured out but think how it should be much easier for a white anglophone to make such contacts and how less jaundiced a bureaucrat would be in assessing the bona fides of such arrangements .It does cost money tho

They told my sister in California that as soon as a performer makes it really big, say a hit movie or a top TV show, they make a beeline for the growing list of people with spare homes in Paraguay. Even George W. Bush has a ranch down there. Fairly big.

    Right, they have no intention of going down with the ship, assuming the worst.

    For that matter, it is nearly impossible to cross the Canadian border into the US.

    That’s a separate worry, and a real one I think.

    For some years, Canadians didn’t need a passport to visit the USA, and vice versa. As a kid we could visit the family in Ontario, Quebec, and out west with no problem. And they could always see us and gift dear old dad (RIP) with a few bottles of his favorite Canadian whiskey. We’d return the favor, always.

    With the rise of globalism, those sort of casual family visits came to an end. As the American states began to take tons of immigrants from everywhere, Canada was probably right to be cautious.

    It’s interesting how average people’s lives get botched up for the sake of a few gigantic corporations, the only ones globalism is actually good for; the only ones who wanted it.

    I keep telling you folks, its the monopolies that have made the wealthy filthy rich.. eliminate copyrights, patents(article 1, sec 8 ([8] and enforce the Sherman and Clayton Acts and retrieve all of the public domain transferred out to private persons or corporations and nearly overnight America will be great again.

    Keep telling it till it sinks in!

    Before she died, Phyllis Schlafly tried to get people aware of the “Mickey Mouse” ruling, which the (current) owners of the Disney Empire used to keep the famous Mouse proprietary forever. It was due to fall into the public domain near the end of the 20th century as Walt Disney, the creator of the Mouse, died in the mid-1960s.

    Nobody listened and it’s now a forever trademark, meant to pull in unearned income for centuries to come, or more likely when the US Empire fizzles like all the earlier ones.

    What interested me, along with Phyllis, was that Walt Disney himself had no problem with the old copyright law as written. There’s no earthly reason apart from greed anyone should have to pay a stranger a fee for the use of a cartoon character when the man who minted it died over a half-century ago.

    The wealthy keep their money in Switzerland or Hong Kong anyhow. So if things really got adverse in the US by say, 200%, what would stop them.

    The super-wealthy can commandeer private airplanes.

    Most of the 1% go to boarding schools overseas with other children of international business elites, so they are already used to living in other countries and doing business with other countries. Moving to NZ or France means nothing to them. They grew up staying in Paris for the summers and Bahamas in the winter.

    We’ve already seen this in South Africa. The upper-class whites, mostly more recent immigrants, fled to England or Australia while the poor working class Boers were left to languish.

    George Bush’s constituency believe that he would hang around his ranch raking leaves if the SHTF when he and his entire family would simply charter private jets to fly off.

    As an expat of a lower-income stripe, I’ve rubbed shoulders with super elite. If nothing else they have yachts and I have known some who sailed across the Pacific in 100 foot yachts which were totally efficient.

    Mexico also has a cynical public policy of fobbing off their problem cases by exporting them to other countries rather than providing adequate opportunities.

    Those thousands o homeless would immigrate i they could.

    The elite are very “tolerant” of the homeless until they start showing up in their own neighborhoods. Even though the mainstream media keeps telling us that the U.S. economy is “booming”, the number of Americans living on the streets continues to grow very rapidly, and this is particularly true in our major west coast cities. More than half a million Americans will sleep on the streets of our cities tonight, and they need help, care and shelter. Sadly, as economic conditions deteriorate that number is likely to double or even triple. Of course many among the elite are all in favor of doing something for the homeless, as long as they don’t have to be anywhere around them.

    What the difference I see is: In Mexico, those homeless would have to toughen up. Also, when I was going to college in Oklahoma, in chemistry class, were talking about “living off the host” and how the host eventually dies. I said< 'then some time in the future welfare recipients will kill off the host?", I was almost lynched, and ostracized for 'being insensitive'. I just laughed out loud. I am not afraid of anything or any one. I say things the way they are, and if some one refutes them, then I apologize if I am wrong.

    So, those homeless wish they were in Mexico, at least they will be free; believe it or not, there is more freedom in Mexico than the US of A. The US of A is a police state, surveillance state; You feel it in your inner most part of your being.

    Very interesting and astute.

    As an “Actual-American, or “Heritage-American”, I’m pretty much stuck here. Blacks have Liberia, if they think the US is so awful, they can always go there. White European Americans have literally NOWHERE else to go. Europe certainly won’t take us (look at how they deny the Afrikaners and other white South Africans), and all other countries have restrictive immigration policies, and so regular white Americans aren’t welcome there, and we aren’t welcome here in the country our ancestors settled, and built.

    This isn’t uncommon though. I grew up in an area with lots of foreigners from all sorts of places. Every single one of them wanted to eventually go home, and use the money they made here to live large, in their home country. They were here solely for economic advancement and free stuff/handouts. American citizens, especially whites, get almost nothing for free, and pay the taxes that the government then uses as handouts for foreigners. It’s a screwed up system, and it doesn’t benefit us at all.

    The points about our toxic culture are so spot on. It isn’t just SJW garbage, it’s all of it. The media, movies, tv, video games, the internet. Really look at it and see that every single thing they create, is utterly vile. Over sexualized, perverted, satanic, violent, etc. You’d never see something cute and harmless like say, Gomer Pyle USMC any longer, it’s all agenda pushing deviance (for the lighter fare like Modern Family) and violent filth (Sabrina the Teenage Witch).

    We really are circling the drain. And honestly, looking around at the fat, ugly, stupid, sedated lumpenproles, I don’t care. I feel zero kinship towards all the foreigners, I don’t hate them or wish them ill, but I certainly don’t feel like they’re my fellow citizens and I feel mostly a benign resentment towards them but I also don’t blame them for getting what they can and getting out. My fellow whites are too scared and whipped. Their entire lives revolve around pointless hedonism, buying toys, bragging about their stuff and vacations, and making sure to virtue signal and spout all the right talking points to satisfy the diversity police. They’re disgusting, honestly. Blacks? They’re just dangerous savages and I avoid them as much as possible. Which is sad because when you find a few “good ones”, they can be funny and fun, with a lot of real talk, but they’re like human pit bulls. Great, until they snap and murder you.

    Your remark seems to imply a mistaken belief that Rachel Corrie and other such American pro-Palestinian activists operate in an official or semi-official capacity on behalf of our government. This is false. So, no, there are no Mexican pro-Palestinian activists that I am aware of who act as official or semi-official agents of the Mexican state. There are, however, numerous Mexicans who, like their American peers, agitate on behalf of Palestine and the interests of the Palestinian people out of personal conviction. The roommate of an ex of mine back when I lived in Mexico had spent two years living in Gaza. She was crucial in my education of the Israeli apartheid state.

    You say Mexicans are blessed with a more robust discussion of I/P but I see no evidence of this at all.

    Wherefore did I ever say they or anybody else were “blessed” with anything? Is my siesta-addled Latinx brain, baking daily as it is under the unforgiving rays of the tropical sun, in need of aid from your surely superior I.

    Off the top of my head there are Palestina Libre and Resumen Medio Oriente.

    You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Of course, I am the one that has no idea what they are talking about. Why I only speak, read, and write in Spanish as a first language; have lived for extended periods in Latin America, read Spanish language newspapers every day, am in daily contact with Spanish speakers, and maintain subscriptions to several Spanish language literary and current affairs periodicals. What would I know? Surely you, an English language monolingual who rarely ventures beyond the reach of your front porch must know, as the young people would say, “what’s up”.

    And just to remind you, the subject of this story (this figment of Dinh’s imagination)…

    I was not aware that you had procured irrefutable evidence against the existence of the subject of Dinh’s interview. Surely your revelation and in-depth analysis of this evidence is forthcoming? A grateful world awaits tremulously for yet another virtuoso display of your staggering intellect.

    …is a Dreamer; he didn’t grow up in Mexico. So your point about the Mexican media is kinda worthless.

    My reply was directed at a comment you had made specifically about Mexicans:

    Mexicans generally don’t care about Israel/Palestine

    How strange that so broad and false a statement should have come from such an erudite and insightful mind as yours.

    My bet is Mexican interest in I/P revolves around the West Bank security wall for obvious reasons. Mexicans know that wall is used by Trump as exhibit A in how barriers work. So they don’t like it.

    “My bet”—sure sounds like the sentiment of somebody with a profound knowledge and feeling for matters pertaining to Mexico and Latin America.

    Anyway, you are correct—finally!—that a lot of current discourse about Israel revolves around the wall. Although the noise around that has been subsiding over the past year as it has become increasingly apparent to Mexicans that the U. S. president was only bluffing.

    However, you would be mistaken in thinking concern about Palestine was virtually conjured overnight by the ascent of Trump. As I have mentioned before, Latin America—and Mexico in particular—has significant and longstanding communities of Middle Eastern immigrants and their descendants. Interest in and support of Palestine has historically been strong among them. Because many of these Middle Eastern-descended Mexicans and Latin Americans also occupy positions of political and cultural power within their countries, advocacy on behalf of Palestinian interests is widespread and more evenly matched against Israeli interests than they are in the Anglophone world.

    The super-wealthy like Bill Gates can purchase a passport and New Zealand is popular with IT tech billionaires, for example.

    Heritage Americans believe that if SHTF ethnic whites on the East Coast like the Italians or Irish and Old Money WASPS would fight tooth-and-nail with them…they would flee back to Italy or Ireland or to countries like NZ.

    You might say “good riddance” except that they would take their money with them.

    ‘Wealthy Americans might be liberal but they are proudly European and often send their kids to European boarding schools and most speak a second language. Moving to Paris or Switzerland does not matter to them. Their alliances are with children of global elites from all over the world and not with people in a 7 mile radius.

    The elite will talk about “community values” but they are transnational and their community consists of the children of Asian and Russian bankers and plutocrats. So community means little to them.

    On a macro level, Heritage Americans would be like blacks in post-industrial graveyards or Boers if the US gets %200 worse. The wealth and educated and highly skilled whites, Asians and Jews will leave. Just as they left Detroit or Baltimore or middle and upper-class South Africans abandoned working-class Boers.

    A great many males like myself are single and will have nothing to lose by moving to Southeast Asia as I have. Many males will simple sell their house and take the money to developing countries like Philippines and start anew.
    I’ve met males who were married and did have children in the US who simply walked off to the Philippines to remarry local Filipino women and live off the grid. Just walked out of their house in Ohio one day and disappeared leaving their family and children with no idea where they went. Males can do this.

    If you look at the history of the US South, males from Britain simply abandoned their debts and families there and hopped a boat and took up with Cherokee women like the ancestors of the Lumbee. Same thing happens with American males who leave their wives and kids and move to Eastern Europe or Asia.

    If you can sell your parents house for $100,000 and your wife divorced you in 1987 when your son was 4 years old and you have no obligations moving to Southeast Asia is an attractive choice.

    Many Gen X born in the 1970’s and Gen Y born in the eighties and nineties have never had children or divorced in 1987 .

    But take me for example. Born in 1974, I left the US in 1999 as a young single man. I owned no house and drifted from job to job overseas.
    When you have never owned a house in the US, never had a family, never married have no strong ties to the US.

    You have to ask yourself what the US actually DOES for the average male like the “Out Generation”. If they are fortunate, like you said, they get to age 60 and sell Mom and Dad’s house for $100,000 and move to Southeast Asia or Eastern Europe.

    If their parents didn’t leave them a house than many become homeless.

    Canada and the US have had border walls since the 19th century. Not everywhere of course, some have infrared electrified fences etc. but no stretch of the US-Canada border is porous.

    On some level, you are probably correct. The elites for some reason want Latino immigrants. Canada doesn’t.

    Drugs is another factor. Millions of pounds of meth and heroin and cocaine get through the Southern border.

    One is not going to dig about in the local mom and pop weekly or community bulletin for perspectives on events of global import, after all. But major newspapers like El País and El Clarín, respectively Spanish and Argentine, direct themselves as much to their home audience as they do to the foreign one.

    Resumen Media Oriente is a Spanish site. Palestina Libre is a Chilean site. So now Mexico gets to take credit for everything published in Spanish? Does America get credit for everything published in Britain?

    No. You asked for a “beaner” equivalent, if I recall correctly. I did not realize that a person of your lilliputian mental limitations had a specific connotation in mind for such a highly scientific term.

    But let’s put that obvious point aside and say you’re right about the Spanish-speaking media. You say they’re way ahead of the English-speaking world on I/P.

    There you go hyperventilating again, conjuring from whole wild fabrications which I never even implied. Never did I say they—“they” presumably being Mexicans?—were “way ahead”. I just said that mass Middle Eastern immigration to Latin America in the 19th and 20th centuries has fostered an environment in which pro-Palestinian sympathies are allowed a degree of mainstream expression that does not quite exist in the U. S. Had this country experienced a similar history of large-scale Middle Eastern immigration, which eventually allowed their descendants to stand upon key political and cultural nodal points, then perhaps the Israel lobby would not hold such great sway. Why does this truth irk you so?

    And yet look at you. You were stumbling around in the dark until a “roommate of your ex” explained things to you. How does that prove your point about the “superior” Spanish (though definitely not Mexican) media?

    My anecdote was not meant to do anything other than to disprove your false and uneducated assertion that Mexicans do not care about matters pertaining to Israel and Palestine. They most certainly do.

    As for me, I was in my early 20s back then. Issues relating to the Middle East never interested me deeply, my immediate attentions being fixated upon the politics of Japan, Latin America, and the U. S., to say nothing of matters literary and musical. Truth be told, I still do not care terribly about the situation in the disputed territories of the Levant. The Israelis and Palestinians both could be be collectively tossed into the Mediterranean and have their homelands paved over into a single gigantic parking lot tomorrow. It would mean nothing to me. My distaste for all of this inter-Semitic squabbling notwithstanding, it is plainly evident to me that Israel is the bigger aggressor of the two sides.

    At any rate, not caring is rather different from not being informed. Being born in the U. S. and up until that time having lived nearly all my life within its borders, I was only exposed to the images reflected in the vast, enclosed hall of mirrors that is the American media. I was well-informed insofar as what skewed information was made available to me, which is not only disseminated in English, but also in Spanish via networks like Univisión and Telemundo. In those twilight years before the internet permeated the entirety of the Western social fabric, it was not easy to get news from abroad. So what I encountered being printed and broadcasted in Mexico and throughout Latin America about Israeli-Palestinian tensions was rather different from what I had heard and read back home.

    I was well aware of Israel’s criminal activity three decades ago and did my own homework to get there. I didn’t need an acquaintance to explain the situation to me.

    Well, bully for you. A self-satisfied cretin who pretends to not only know-it-all, but to have always known it all. I shudder to contemplate what would be of our republic were it not for the bombastic, navel-gazing ululations of you and your kind.

    Not necessarily bar girls. One of the worst case scenarios I knew of was a guy named Will who met a Filipino woman in Qatar where he worked as an engineer. He built a condo and for a few years they made money but…eventually he was 60 and she was only 30.

    Throw in the knowledge that under Filipino law the woman owns the land.

    It is an awful cycle because most of these guys, after being ripped off, cannot afford to LIVE in the West because, um, they have no savings left. So they then have to STAY in the Philippines.

  164. “STRYKER FORCE” EXPAT GUIDE TO SURVIVAL

    1) Be aware of who the market-dominant minorities are. Are they Chinese? Syrian Jews if you are in Cochin? Italians in Paraguay? Whoever they are, know them and don’t cross them. At best, you’ll get deported but they can do worse than that. I knew one Korean who openly hated Chinese-Filipinos who had cocaine planted on him at a police checkpoint in Cebu because the Chinese-Filipino community dislike him personally. Whoever the “market-dominant elite” is, make at least one good friend among them. For example, if you move to Mexico meet and befriend at least one Creole from a wealthy old Spanish family in case you have a problem.

    2) May-September. So you are a virile man of 45 and you meet a smoking hot SEA girl of 20 and decide to marry her. Think forward to age 60 when you are old and she is a mature woman of thirty with sexual urges. Will she want to get old changing your diapers, or would she just easily tell you to get out of HER house. Because it will be hers.

    3) Understand local laws. You cannot own anything. Ken invested $1,000,000 and then found out the hard way it did not legally belong to him and his wife simply turned to their security guard and told the guard to escort him off HER property so she could screw her boyfriend in the hotel Ken invested his life savings in.

    5) Life can be cheap. Ghetto gang-banger and Mestizo violence is usually a half ass impulsive spur-of-the-moment thing. Filipinos can pay $200 and arrange an assassination. They often do this for infidelity. Just pay some guys to blow away the man that is boning their wife. One long-time ex army Ranger once told me that when it is 4 shooters on 2 motorcycles with .45 autos you have zero chance. I’ve known friends who lived in Russia who said it was the same thing. Anybody can kill you and get away with it.

    5) Hurricanes can wipe out your house and there is no insurance.

    6) When you have been overseas for many years you are a foreigner in your own country. Your family forgets about you. You lose track of friends. You have no connections. Some people dislike you and perceive you as a coward and fair-weather friend. You lose track of popular culture so you have nothing to talk about with people. If you fail to renew your state license you no longer qualify as in-state resident so cannot get welfare or other programs.

    7) Some countries are anti-American.

    8) Some Americans who are broke will attempt to launch onto you. I had this experience with Clinton, whom I met in an internet cafe. Clinton claimed to have been robbed but in fact he had simply run out of money in Philippines and did not want to go home. One sympathetic American gave him $100 and he spent on a girl in a bar within an hour and was back outside McDonald’s again looking for more assistance. Eventually, it transpired that he had been homeless for years in the Philippines and resisted all efforts by the local US Consulate to assist him. Clinton also befriended an older American man and then got some Filipinos he hung around with to burglarize the sympathetic American’s house. Most homeless Americans in SEA slowly go insane day-by-day.

    9) Beware of associating with bar girls. These Asian girls are usually not only prostitutes but meth heads as well. A few of them are nice girls who sincerely want a decent life but 80% of them are just crazed drug-addicted criminals.

    10) Drugs. If you cannot live without your marijuana or ecstasy, don’t move to SEA. Buying your way out of bust is extremely difficult and locals are always trying to set up foreigners with cops who will split your bribe with them. It is easy to become an alcoholic because booze is so cheap in Philippines.

  165. @Sunshine

    SUNSHINE

    You makes some valid points about foreigners and while I apologize for tailgating parsing it is best-

    1) I briefly managed a girly bar in the Philippines and many of the employees were either studying nursing or were going back to nursing jobs. One of the most unapologetic bar girls was a dental nurse named Vanessa. She later returned to the US to put her fingers back in people’s mouths in the dental office after working in the bar for 5 months. One or two of the bar girls contracted AIDS in the bar-this is common in SEA-and they RETURNED overseas to work as nurses.

    2) When I lived in India an unpleasant brash young Indian woman bothered me for information about entering the US pornographic film industry and I told her that I knew nothing of it except it was located in Los Angeles somewhere. She was hellbent on going to the US and get into pornography and I later heard that indeed she managed to find a contact and borrowed money to fly to California to do so.

    3) I met many Indians in IT and Filipinos who had been laborers who HATED blacks and Mexicans when they returned to their native countries. They would meet me, realize I was American and then launch into long diatribes about how much they hated blacks and Mexicans they’d met in the US.

    Why do I mention these foreigners? Because these are the people who come to the US. They are not coming for religious freedom or the desire to build a new nation like your British ancestors. They have never read the constitution and don’t care about free speech. They get into the most sleazy (If legal) businesses to make as much money as they can. Privately they think whites are plainspoken naive fools and blacks and Mexicans are barbaric.

    So you are absolutely right.

    At the end of their rainbow is not buying a house in the US or investing in their new home like Europeans used to. Every cent they earn goes home and they X off the days until they can return to India or Asia and live like Donald Trump.

You also sound surprised that the mentality of foreigners would be quite alien to Europeans. This again is the diversity kool-aid affecting your brain.

    The idea of Asians or Africans being just like Europeans was laughable to pretty much everyone before television allowed mass indoctrination on a scale never seen before. Nobody expected it and they weren’t the least bit surprised to find that foreigners were different. Even different ethnic groups of the same race let alone people of a different race. No non-White group on this planet believes in diversity nonsense now and they never have.

    I have a friend who got sucked in by one of the bar girls in Thailand. He lives there now and at the markets he used to hear the locals chanting. For a while he never knew what they were chanting until his “girlfriend” filled him in. The chant is something along the the lines of “Go home White man, Thailand is for Thai people, we don’t want you here”. I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I heard that.

This one moved propelled Microsoft into becoming the most widely-used operating system on the planet. As IBM was looking for an “operating system” for its microcomputers at the time, things “fell into place” for Microsoft.
    People such as Bill Gates think, that because of their “success”, they can “lord it over the masses” and (attempt to) decide what is good for the rest of us.

    Why being an alcoholic in SEA makes sense-

    2. Thailand and SEA is a lovely place to get drunk-tropical, breezy, nice beaches. Why sit in low dangerous bars in the US where some thug parolee is always swinging a chair or a bottle and the clientele are hardcore white trash in order to drink everyday in say, Indiana, when you can enjoy a nice outdoor bar on the beach?

    3) In Thailand if you want to get laid at a bar as oppose to US bars where men fight over some borderline-alcoholic barfly slut just get some sex.

    You’re probably rural and not urban lower middle class like myself so proximity to diversity is not a huge issue for you.

    For the lower middle class white urban male it is more difficult to move to the sticks than to Thailand. In Thailand there is public transportation so you are not dependent on an off-road vehicle that can handle dirt roads. You are not going to get laid very easily if you move to the sticks when you are 40 and the only place to meet women is some C&W Bar. Most smaller towns and cities are very cliquish. And the people tend to be narrow-minded. Your employment opportunities are more limited in the sticks than overseas.

    If you were born in a nice smaller city or town and own a business and a house on a lake you’d be pretty stupid to sell it and move to Thailand.

    But if you are urban like me and rented apartments and ever had to witness a “chimpout” on a public bus…anything is better. Look at what happened in Seattle the other day with that elderly man pushed off the bus. Thai people will not do that.

    If you cannot handle a few Asian making snide remarks in a market or something, then no, you should not travel

    But again, this IS NOTHING to urban whites like myself who face the threat of genuine harm every single day from diversity.

    America is so stratified by class and race that the gulf of 40 miles between a city and rural white area is vast.

    Most “chimp outs” in the US occur in public in broad daylight. Such as the death of the elderly white man on the Seattle bus. These are acts of brute force by people who are large and powerful by gene code. I’m not really afraid of a Thai woman pushing me off a bus. But for some reason West African genes seem to produce the heaviest people on the planet and if they have an outburst it can be lethal.

    Nighttime violence in Southeast Asia does occur. Especially involving alcohol and prostitutes. But in broad daylight in Bangkok, unlike Phoenix, street gangs will not pursue you.

    If I told any poster here they could choose between walking through an Asian city at night and walking through East Los Angeles or Baltimore or Detroit, they’ll choose Asia. No poster is going to get on at this point and tell me “I’d walk through Flint at night before I walked through Bangkok or Seoul”

    As for living Mexico or Latin America, I cannot imagine why any American would wish to do that. That is a barrio on steroids.

    My point is that the white people in Mexico have managed to remain at the top of a precarious caste system even after Independence from Spain. During the Franco regime in Spain, more Spanish arrived in Mexico and managed to prosper even though it was a poor country.

    Of course the Aztecs or Toltecs or Mestizos are not primitive.

    But the European Mexicans who attend US universities are very smart. I’ve met them at university. Curiously, none of them had any intention of remaining in the US once they graduated from their programs.

    My point is that the Spanish in Latin America whether in Cuba or Guatemala have proved quite intelligent and resourceful to remain at the top of the power structure of those countries.

    America became great precisely and solely because so many of your ilk died. Before the advent of the mommy-State, the weak perished.

    My understanding is that the worst Narco M13 Gang members now destroying Long Island came from the failed Marxist urban groups of the 1980s.

    There were really brutal civil wars in Central America, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicauragua.

    Middle class, Whiter, Central Americans didn’t just take this lying down – or surrender their colleges and universities to the #*$*@ that have now taken over places like University of California Berkeley or Thomas Jefferson’s college town of Charlottesville VA.

    Instead, these Conservative, Right Wing Whiter Central Americans fought brutal civil wars and disappeared, culled the bad elements that you mentioned.

    Liberation theology, pro Marxist Catholic and other “Christian” (in name only) clergy were not spared – the execution of Arch Bishop Óscar Romero

    White Hispanics did better in the 20th century than us now dispossessed Anglo Americans, Anglo Brits, Anglo South Africans.

    White Hispanics fought on the ride side and won the Spanish Civil War. No White Hispanics carpet bombed civilians areas of Hamburg and Dresden Germany.

    Gen. Pinochet was the savior of Chile – and overturned a really, really bad election.

    I so wish there was a tough White Hispanic guy like Gen. Pinochet to overturn all the terrible mayoral and gubernatorial elections here in Chicago Illinois.

    Plus we took all the land that had cut rate gas stations, scenic overlooks, mcdonalds, and convenient drive in whorehouses.

    I would just like to make this comment to tell you that I appreciate your quality comments, and very good writing style. I’m always eager to read your comments when I see your name pop up. If only I had such a command of the language, and could formulate my thoughts so concisely (and with a nice flourish).

    May I ask… were you a writer of some kind?

    We are both Southerners with a fierce pride in our ancestors, we share culture, language, and outlook. I cannot imagine marrying and having a life with a Yankee, let alone someone from a foreign country (or a non white but I am “racist” like that). I truly believe “let the corn be of one sheaf, and the grapes of one vine”.

    God bless you, “Scarlett”. Glad that there are a few people like you still around. Read this comment, then had to look through your comment history.

    shove it shitstain

    still waiting for spaniards like you to own up to what your people did in the New World

    you took 10x as many slaves as North America and your portuguese half bros took a similar amount and yet you both remain silent while whites in the U.S., most of whom had NOTHING to do with slavery, take all the blame

    Pinochet is a complex character. In many ways, he represents an ideal dictator, at least in the original Roman sense of that word (i. e. a ruler who supersedes the previous government and asserts absolute authority in a time of national emergency). Not an intellectual by any means, but shrewd and with good instincts. His only modern equivalents are Kemal Atatürk and Lee Kuan Yew.

    Pinochet imposed order without a cult of personality, a very important detail. Regimes that are too closely built around a single figure or dynasty are doomed to dysfunction. In many respects, Chile enjoyed a somewhat anonymous dictatorship. Even better, he improved the bureaucratic infrastructure of the country, a key component in ensuring its smooth transtion to democracy. Then there was the Chilean plebiscite of 1988 in which he not only was instrumental in bringing about, but unusully for a dictator agreed to its results and stepped down.

    He was not perfect—nobody ever is. But Chile was on the verge of civil war in 1973, an outcome his coup prevented. For that alone he deserves praise.

    Of course, now that the Marxists (and the timid “conservatives” who effectively are their partners) are back in control in South America, all his gains are being eroded.

    Oh, my. A pottymouth, I see: surely an ineffectual coping mechanism for your simian intellectual limitations and flagging, middle-aged libido.

    And what, pray tell, did “my” people do? Considering that I am not a Spaniard, that the long ago Iberians from whom I am descended were not only culturally unrelated to the dominant Castilians, but were often in bitter combat against them, and that the country my parents came from was not involved in the slave trade, I am quite curious to know.

    I cannot speak for the Portuguese, but they have their own troubles. It is called “Brazil” and you will be happy to know that ethnic resentments are alive and well there. As they also are in Spain, for that matter. Read El País any time and find out for yourself. (Of course, I am certain that you are monolingual—your screed betrays your struggle with limited expression already in just one language—and, therefore, unable to.) So… what is your point? Are you happy now? Are we even Steven? Now if you are upset about “white guilt”, do not blame Spain or Spaniards for that. I would gladly accept the blame except that that and sundry other self-destructive ideologies are devised and marketed for export by Anglo-American whites.

    Go ahead. You can apologize to me now, sweetie.

    I appreciate the compliments, believe me. So thank you very kindly for that.

    Writing is a central part of my work.

  210. The man has a good point. I’ve heard it before, and have to agree. If a person can make a good living in Mexico, then go! We have plenty of ex-pats doing the same thing. The migrants we get are the bottom of the barrel and have no problem with living like serfs. Educated Mexicans that can return, probably should. The other side of the story is that Mexico doesn’t want the second generation back. Makes sense in that the social problems tend to manifest in with the legal generation. Being poor and uneducated in America is not a pleasant life; a large proportion resort to crime. Just look at the Calif. numbers. Our boy here came to the logical conclusion and is going to take his US education and live well in the motherland. In fact all the Dreamers should check this option for the same reason; it’s not what you earn, it’s what you keep. If policy was to push these beaners to either obtain citizenship through public service, or take the free US education and return to Mexico as a productive citizen, the problem would solve itself. But the issue of Mexico not taking its emigrants back would still remain. Those second generation farm workers, dish washers or other non-skilled peons are always going to be a social problem until Mexico agrees to allow repatriation of those beans born in the USA.

    Good luck on that one

    We had a visiting Econ professor from Chile, a female at that, good looking for a 40 year old… Anyway, I thought I’d be impressive by trying to quote the latest tripe about Pinochet. She very nicely shut me down by pointing out how Allende was destroying the economy and his ouster was welcomed by anyone with a job. That taught me sooooo much about the bullshit that was, and is the NYT and libtard media. Getting one’s opinion from professional rabble rousers like the Times is and was the mark of mob mentality. But the media would have you believe a New York jew instead of people on the ground. That 5 minute conversation not only changed my opinion on Pinochet (I knew from Agee’s book that the US loves to undermine competing governments, so it was easy to accept the truth), but cemented my views on the liberal press and its position in the Empire. Is much easier to control a rootless and chaotic populace. The destruction of family is nothing new, the only difference now that the internet and tech wars have begun is that it is now obvious that US citizens are no longer the beneficiaries of Western Capitalism, as the post WW2 era convinced the boomers. We are under the Jewboot as much as any turd world shithole. Men like Pinochet may not have been perfect, but they were in a battle to maintain their societies against external and internal threats, and in wartime there is little room for niceties against the enemies at the gate.
