'Why do you betray your people?', someone recently asked me. Just because we are of the same color does not make us a common people.
Since the day I was born, I have been an American. Who I am, what I have, and what I have done with my life, I owe it all to this country I call home: America.
Mexico has never been there for its people, and even less for an American like me.
Mexico has never protected me from any foreign or domestic enemies. It has never taken care of me in times of need; it has never paid my hospital bills, never given me a job, has never given me an education and has not allowed me to collect welfare. It has not even given me a mere meal.
But Mexico has given to me the burden of supporting its people, and has made me tolerate its drug dealers, its human traffickers and criminals. We have had to endure many violations committed on us. We have had our national security violated by all who come here illegally; we have also seen murders, rapes, assault, theft and many more crimes committed. Some will say they don't do any of those crimes, that they are a good, honest hard working people. Coming here illegally is not a good way to immigrate; it is not an honest way. While many do not commit any federal crimes, they do take from us, by leaching off of our welfare system, overcrowding our hospitals, and depleting our school system of money that belongs to our children while not paying a cent into the American system.
He said a lot more. Go check it out.
He sounds a lot like the Mexicans we lived with for four decades in Santa Fe, before the "La Raza" and the "Brown Berets" kind of rabid anti-Americanism took root.
Those idiots really need to read what Jose has written.
