Essential American Truths Hispanics Must Be Made to Understand
By: John Lillpop
After watching millions of illegal aliens and their advocates protest in the streets of America last April and May, it is clear that many Hispanics, including those here legally, need to understand the following essential truths about America:
*In 1848, The Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo was ratified by both the U.S. and Mexican Congresses. That Treaty ended any and all claims Mexico had to land now a part of the United States.
*Any valid property rights claims concerning the Southwest belong to Native American Indians, not Mexicans.
*America is a sovereign nation, totally independent of Mexico. It has been that way for 158 years–we intend to keep it that way.
*Brown may be beautiful in Mexico. But in America, we are partial to colors that symbolize freedom under the rule of law. That would be Red, White and Blue.
*In America, Mexico is a FOREIGN nation and Spanish is a FOREIGN language.
*Being hard-working and good hearted is commendable. But those qualities do NOT entitle anyone to enter America illegally.
*Bilingualism is cool—provided one of the languages is English. Literacy in only Mexican and Spanish is not cool in America.
*Celebrating ones cultural heritage is perfectly fine–as long as it does not interfere with prompt assimilation into American culture.
*U.S. immigration laws exist to protect American citizens & others here legally, not to facilitate a foreignerâ€™s pursuit of a better life, and
*Those who come to America must adjust to our culture and traditions. We have no obligation or desire to change in deference to foreign newcomers.
Illegal aliens: Take this list with you when you are deported back to Mexico, and share it with other Mexicans considering illegal entry.
Your experience may cause them to reconsider, and that would be a good thing!
