GoFundMe Created For Colorado Father Of Five Allegedly Killed By Illegal Alien Timothy Meads | @Timothy__Meads | Posted: Aug 08, 2019 3:10 PM Share (437) Tweet
Source: A GoFundMe has amassed more than $60,000 for five children and their now widowed mother after an illegal alien allegedly killed their father, Sean Buchanan, on Friday, August 2 in a motor vehicle crash. Buchanan was riding his motorcycle Friday afternoon when the driver of a southbound truck hit and killed him. The driver of the truck was Miguel Ramirez Valiente, a Honduran national who was evading deportation orders. Ramierez Valiente received media attention earlier this year from CNN in January after he sought sanctuary in a Denver church in order to avoid deportation back to his home country of El Salvador. As reported by Denver media, sources close to Ramierez Valiente say that while the national media painted him as a family man, that he is actually an alcoholic and an abuser. Indeed, “His arrest record shows charges for reckless endangerment in 2011 and domestic violence in 2016, both cases apparently dismissed by the El Paso County District Attorney.” And, “In 2018, he plead guilty to a 2018 charge of driving under the influence and his license was revoked, according to court records and Colorado State Patrol.” His suspended license was extended after the illegal immigrant failed to attend the required alcohol therapy and community service ordered by a judge. His license was still suspended when his truck crashed into Buchanan. The illegal alien was not arrested and was instead taken to the hospital. “Most of the time we do not arrest on a fatality accident, unless there is a high risk of intoxication, because at that moment we are not sure of charge,” Master Trooper Gary Cutler told the media. “We continue the investigation and then submit the investigation to D.A.’s office with recommendations and D.A. is who actually files the charges on that.” Now, a woman who knows him says she is concerned that he will flee authorities yet again. “He should have been arrested after the crash,” she said. “He just had a DUI, and he’s driving with no license, and he killed somebody like you shouldn’t walk away from that.” “My personal opinion is that we don’t do enough to stop this kind of thing because it could have been stopped,” the anonymous woman added. “You’re here and you’re a hard worker and you’re not causing trouble and doing bad things that’s fine, but he had already been in trouble, several times and now we have a death because of it.” According to the GoFundMe set up for Buchanan’s family, the father was preparing to move to Ireland. He and his wife had three children of their own and adopted two little boys. “As his friends and loved ones, we must now take on the privilege to care for those that he loved the most,” the GoFundMe says.

Matt Vespa It also adds that since the driver had his license was revoked, he was not insured, which “means that there will be no insurance claim or money coming from that.” The GoFundMe’s goal is $200,000 and can be found here. As pointed out by commentator Ryan Girdusky, “So Sean leaves behind 5 children, who will never be able to reunite with their father in this life. Daughters who won’t have a father to walk them down the aisle & sons who won’t have a dad to teach them about being a man.” Will the mainstream media write this story up?

Sanctuary State Likely to Free Illegal Alien Accused of Killing Father of Two (BPD, Facebook) JOHN BINDER 8 Aug 2019 1,296 2:54
The sanctuary state of Illinois is likely to release an illegal alien accused of killing father of two Corey Cottrell on bail after being incarcerated for less than a month. As Breitbart News has chronicled , Jose Rodriguez, a 27-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, is accused of running a red light on June 22 in the sanctuary state of Illinois, causing him to hit and kill 39-year-old Corey Cottrell, who was riding his motorcycle at the time and was on his way to see his mother, Kathy. Rodriguez was ordered deported six years ago but never left the U.S. At the time of the crash, prosecutors say the illegal alien fled the scene and turned himself in the following day. Prairie State Wire ‘s W.J. Kennedy first broke the news that McLean County Judge Scott Drazewski lowered Rodriguez’s bail from $1,000,000 to $100,000 on Thursday despite prosecutors and the Cottrell family begging that the illegal alien remain locked up to ensure he not is deported before he is convicted of killing Corey. Rodriguez has already met the $100,000 bail requirement and thus is likely to be released from local custody within the next 48 hours and should he be immediately arrested by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), he is expected to be deported — evading charges in Corey’s death.

(Photo via Facebook) Should ICE agents not immediately arrest Rodriguez, he will be free to flee the state and the country, the Cottrell family told Breitbart News. “He took away, out of his carelessness and lawlessness, took away a wonderful, wonderful person,” Cheryl Wendland, a friend of the Cottrell family, previously told Breitbart News. “He’s destroyed my very best friend in the world, he’s destroyed her by losing her only son … and he left behind two beautiful little girls, a 14-year-old and an 11-year-old.” The Cottrell family suspects Rodriguez was a beneficiary of the catch and release program, wherein the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detains and then releases hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens and border-crossers into the interior of the U.S. every year. Despite being ordered deported in 2013 and 2014, the illegal alien was never deported. The Cottrell family also suspects Rodriguez was drunk driving when he hit and allegedly killed Corey.

In a similar case this year, Breitbart News chronicled the killing of 22-year-old Pierce Corcoran in Knoxville, Tennessee at the hands of 44-year-old illegal alien Francisco Eduardo Franco-Cambrany. Days before New Year’s Eve, Franco-Cambrany crashed into Pierce, who was driving with his girlfriend, and killed him. The Corcoran family suspects that the illegal alien was driving drunk at the time, but a toxicology report was not done following the crash to conclude this. While Tennessee officials’ cooperation with ICE allowed Franco-Cambrany to be held in prison for months, the lack of a toxicology report slowed the case, and eventually the illegal alien was deported to his native Mexico in April — evading all charges against him for Pierce’s death.

AND THE DEMS WILL HAND THEM AMNESTY SO THEY CAN BRING UP THE REST OF THEIR FAMILY AND VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR MORE! Criminal Illegal Alien Accused of Killing Colorado Father of Five (KOAA5/Facebook) JOHN BINDER 8 Aug 2019 108 2:55
A convicted criminal illegal alien, who has been in the United States for at least eight years, is accused of killing a Colorado father of five children in a deadly crash on August 2, according to law enforcement officials. A new report from Denver ABC 7 reveals that 40-year-old illegal alien Miguel Ramirez Valiente from El Salvador is the suspect accused of hitting and killing Sean Buchanan — a husband to wife Kathy and father to their five children — in a motorcycle crash. Valiente, police said, over-corrected his vehicle when he swerved into Buchanan’s lane, hitting and killing him. The illegal alien, records obtained by Denver ABC 7 show, was driving without a license and had a prior criminal record. Despite this, Valiente was not arrested on the scene of the accident and locals fear he could flee the country before charges are brought against him. “He was amazing. It’s trying to figure out what the new normal looks like when the old normal was so good,” Kathy Buchanan, Sean’s wife, told Denver ABC 7 . In 2013, the state of Colorado passed a law that allows eligible illegal aliens to obtain state driver’s licenses.

(Photo via Facebook) Valiente’s criminal record dates back to 2011 when he was charged with reckless endangerment in Douglas County, Colorado. Then, in 2016 Valiente was charged with domestic violence in El Paso County, Colorado. In both of these cases, Denver ABC 7 reports, the charges were dropped against Valiente. Last year, the illegal alien pleaded guilty to drunk driving charges from 2017. A day before the fatal accident, Valiente has his probation extended for failing to comply with alcohol therapy and community service requirements. Denver ABC 7 interviewed a woman, who kept her identity anonymous, that knew Valiente says he should have never been free in the first place. “He should have been arrested after the crash,” the woman said. “He just had a DUI, and he’s driving with no license, and he killed somebody, like you shouldn’t walk away from that.” “My personal opinion is that we don’t do enough to stop this kind of thing because it could have been stopped,” the woman continued. “You’re here and you’re a hard worker and you’re not causing trouble and doing bad things that’s fine, but he had already been in trouble, several times and now we have a death because of it.” A friend of the Buchanan family has created a GoFundMe page for Kathy and their five children. Sean leaves behind his wife, Kathy, his daughters 15-year-old Jasyln, 12-year-old Maleah, 10-year-old Bella, and his two adopted sons, eight-year-old Michal, and six-year-old Divin. Last month, the Cottrell family in Bloomington, Illinois suffered the loss of their loved one, Corey, a father to two young daughters, after he was hit and killed on his motorcycle by an illegal alien from Honduras.

Cory Booker: ‘The Trump Administration is Continuing to Terrorize Immigrants’
By Staff | August 8, 2019 | 11:04 AM EDT
Sen. Cory Booker speaking at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C., Aug. 7, 2019. (Getty Images/Sean Rayford) ( – Sen. Cory Booker (D.-N.J.), a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, put out a Tweet on Wednesday night saying that the Trump administration was “continuing to terrorize immigrants.” “Don’t look away—the Trump Administration is continuing to terrorize immigrants and separate families,” Booker said in his Tweet. “This is a moment of moral crisis in our country—we must do better.” The Tweet featured a link to an Associated Press story about U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials arresting illegal aliens working at food processing plants in Mississippi. “U.S. immigration officials say raids at seven food processing plants in Mississippi resulted in 680 arrests,” said the AP story . “Authorities say about 600 agents fanned out across the plants, surrounding the perimeters to prevent workers from fleeing,” said the AP. “They targeted several companies.”

Prominent Dem stands up to the mob: ‘Donald Trump is no racist’ By Thomas Lifson
Trump-hatred may be good business for some, but the failure of Democrats to accept electoral defeat in 2016 and the escalation of violent imagery and rhetoric, the attempted coup via he Russia hoax, and the escalating violence against Trump supporters is corrosive to the political health of the Republic. There are still a few leaders among the Democrats – far too few – who are willing to stand against the insanity. Given the smashing economic success of the president (remember James Carville’s slogan,“it’s the economy, stupid”?), Trump-haters have descended to race-baiting, claming that Donald Trump is a racist, white nationalist, white supremacist … with future insults to be invented once these go stale. One of the Democrat office-holders who knows Trump, the man, best is Andrew Stein, the longtime Borough President of Manhattan. Taking to the pages of The Hill , he writes of the overwhelming evidence of Trump’s true attitudes on race. It is a must-read, for it relies on facts, not just opinions. Andrew Stein at the Tribecca Film Festival in 2009 ( sourc e) Donald Trump is no racist. I have known him since 1973 and have never seen any indication or any form of racism. In fact, quite the contrary. When I was Manhattan Borough president and president of the New York City Council, I asked him numerous times to help black or Hispanic groups, and he always came through, many times without publicity. When a hurricane ravished Puerto Rico in the mid 1980s, I asked many big companies to give various forms of assistance — but the problem was how to get all of this aid down to Puerto Rico. I called Donald Trump, and he provided us with a 727 jet to take all of the donated material down to the island, and he didn’t ask for any publicity for that generous act. My friend, Rev. Floyd Flake , the minister of the largest black church in Queens, asked for some help for his senior center. Again, I called Donald Trump and he wrote a big check. One day I met an African American woman on the street with her two adorable young kids. She was homeless, and I gave her some money — and then asked Donald to get her into some low-income housing in Queens. He came through, and did so without any fanfare. When President Trump recently attacked Congressman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), he was not doing so because Rep. Cummings is black but because the president is a counter-puncher. And he is right that Cummings has been a congressman for 22 years and that Baltimore, part of which is in his congressional district, is a mess . The city has gotten worse during his tenure: more poverty, more drugs and more crime. There is much ore. Read the whole thing. It’s time for the grown-ups among the Democrats to save their party from madness. Hat tip: Roger Luchs
La Raza Founder – Kill the Gringos (José Angel Gutiérrez)
Obama Funds the Mexican Fascist Party of LA RAZA “The Race”
by Michelle Malkin
Only in America could critics of a group called “The Race” be labeled racists. Such is the triumph of left-wing identity chauvinists, whose aggressive activists and supine abettors have succeeded in redefining all opposition as “hate.”
Both Barack Obama and John McCain will speak this week in San Diego at the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, the Latino organization whose name is Spanish for, yes, “The Race.” Can you imagine Obama and McCain paying homage to a group of white people who called themselves that? No matter. The presidential candidates and the media have legitimized “The Race” as a mainstream ethnic lobbying group and marginalized its critics as intolerant bigots. The unvarnished truth is that the group is a radical ethnic nationalist outfit that abuses your tax dollars and milks PC politics to undermine our sovereignty.
Here are 15 things you should know about “The Race”:
15. “The Race” supports driver’s licenses for illegal aliens. 14.”The Race” demands in-state tuition discounts for illegal alien students that are not available to law-abiding U.S. citizens and law-abiding legal immigrants. 13. “The Race” vehemently opposes cooperative immigration enforcement efforts between local, state and federal authorities. 12. “The Race” opposes a secure fence on the southern border. 11. “The Race” joined the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee in a failed lawsuit attempt to prevent the feds from entering immigration information into a key national crime database — and to prevent local police officers from accessing the data. 10. “The Race” opposed the state of Oklahoma’s tough immigration-enforcement-first laws, which cut off welfare to illegal aliens, put teeth in employer sanctions and strengthened local-federal cooperation and information sharing. 9. “The Race” joined other open-borders, anti-assimilationists and sued to prevent Proposition 227, California’s bilingual education reform ballot initiative, from becoming law. 8. “The Race” bitterly protested common-sense voter ID provisions as an “absolute disgrace.” 7. “The Race” has consistently opposed post-9/11 national security measures at every turn. 6. Former “Race” president Raul Yzaguirre, Hillary Clinton’s Hispanic outreach adviser, said this: “U.S. English is to Hispanics as the Ku Klux Klan is to blacks.” He was referring to U.S. English, the nation’s oldest, largest citizens’ action group dedicated to preserving the unifying role of the English language in the United States. “The Race” also pioneered Orwellian open-borders Newspeak and advised the Mexican government on how to lobby for illegal alien amnesty while avoiding the terms “illegal” and “amnesty.” 5. “The Race” gives mainstream cover to a poisonous subset of ideological satellites, led by Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, or Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA). The late GOP Rep. Charlie Norwood rightly characterized the organization as “a radical racist group … one of the most anti-American groups in the country, which has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the American West.” 4. “The Race” is currently leading a smear campaign against staunch immigration enforcement leaders and has called for TV and cable news networks to keep immigration enforcement proponents off the airwaves — in addition to pushing for Fairness Doctrine policies to shut up their foes. The New York Times reported that current “Race” president Janet Murguia believes “hate speech” should “not be tolerated, even if such censorship were a violation of First Amendment rights.” 3. “The Race” sponsors militant ethnic nationalist charter schools subsidized by your public tax dollars (at least $8 million in federal education grants). The schools include Aztlan Academy in Tucson, Ariz., the Mexicayotl Academy in Nogales, Ariz., Academia Cesar Chavez Charter School in St. Paul, Minn., and La Academia Semillas del Pueblo in Los Angeles, whose principal inveighed: “We don’t want to drink from a White water fountain, we have our own wells and our natural reservoirs and our way of collecting rain in our aqueducts. We don’t need a White water fountain … ultimately the White way, the American way, the neo liberal, capitalist way of life will eventually lead to our own destruction.” 2. “The Race” has perfected the art of the PC shakedown at taxpayer expense, pushing relentlessly to lower home loan standards for Hispanic borrowers, reaping millions in federal “mortgage counseling” grants, seeking special multimillion-dollar earmarks and partnering with banks that do business with illegal aliens. 1. “The Race” thrives on ethnic supremacy — and the elite sheeple’s unwillingness to call it what it is. As historian Victor Davis Hanson observes: “[The] organization’s very nomenclature ‘The National Council of La Raza’ is hate speech to the core. Despite all the contortions of the group, Raza (as its Latin cognate suggests) reflects the meaning of ‘race’ in Spanish, not ‘the people’ — and that’s precisely why we don’t hear of something like ‘The National Council of the People,’ which would not confer the buzz notion of ethnic, racial and tribal chauvinism.” The fringe is the center. The center is the fringe. Viva La Raza.
ALIEN NATION: Secrets of the Invasion
May 2006 – ALIEN NATION: Secrets of the Invasion – Why America’s government invites rampant illegal immigration
It’s widely regarded as America’s biggest problem: Between 12 and 20 million aliens (MOST SOURCES SUGGEST THERE ARE MUCH MORE LIKELY NEARLY 40 MILLION ILLEGALS HERE NOW) – including large numbers of criminals, gang members and even terrorists – have entered this nation illegally, with countless more streaming across our scandalously unguarded borders daily. The issue polarizes the nation, robs citizens of jobs, bleeds taxpayers, threatens America’s national security and dangerously balkanizes the country into unassimilated ethnic groups with little loyalty or love for America’s founding values. Indeed, the de facto invasion is rapidly transforming America into a totally different country than the one past generations have known and loved. And yet – most Americans have almost no idea what is really going on, or why it is happening. While news reports depict demonstrations and debates, and while politicians promise “comprehensive border security programs,” no real answers ever seem to emerge. But there are answers. Truthful answers. Shocking answers. In its groundbreaking May edition, WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine reveals the astounding hidden agendas, plans and people behind America’s immigration nightmare. Titled “ALIEN NATION,” the issue is subtitled “SECRETS OF THE INVASION: Why government invites rampant illegal immigration.” Indeed, it reveals pivotal secrets very few Americans know. For example: Did you know that the powerfully influential Council on Foreign Relations – often described as a “shadow government” – issued a comprehensive report last year laying out a five-year plan for the “establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community” with a common “outer security perimeter”? Roughly translated: In the next few years, according to the 59-page report titled “Building a North American Community,” the U.S. must be integrated with the socialism, corruption, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada. “Common perimeter” means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada. As Phyllis Schlafly reveals in this issue of Whistleblower: “This CFR document asserts that President Bush, Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin ‘committed their governments’ to this goal when they met at Bush’s ranch and at Waco, Texas, on March 23, 2005. The three adopted the ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America’ and assigned ‘working groups’ to fill in the details. It was at this same meeting, grandly called the North American Summit, that President Bush pinned the epithet ‘vigilantes’ on the volunteers guarding our border in Arizona.” The CFR report – important excerpts of which are published in Whistleblower – also suggests North American elitists begin getting together regularly, and presumably secretly, “to buttress North American relationships, along the lines of the Bilderberg or Wehrkunde conferences, organized to support transatlantic relations.” The Bilderberg and Wehrkunde conferences are highly secret conclaves of the powerful. For decades, there have been suspicions that such meetings were used for plotting the course of world events and especially the centralization of global decision-making. Did you know that radical immigrant groups – including the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) and the National Council of La Raza (La Raza) – not only share a revolutionary agenda of conquering America’s southwest, but they also share common funding sources, notably the Ford and Rockefeller foundations? ”California is going to be a Hispanic state,” said Mario Obeldo, former head of MALDEF. “Anyone who does not like it should leave.” And MEChA’s goal is even more radical: an independent ”Aztlan,” the collective name this organization gives to the seven states of the U.S. Southwest – Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah. So why would the Rockefeller and Ford foundations support such groups? Joseph Farah tells the story in this issue of Whistleblower. Why have America’s politicians – of both major parties – allowed the illegal alien invasion of this nation to continue for the last 30 years unabated? With al-Qaida and allied terrorists promising to annihilate major U.S. cities with nuclear weapons, with some big-city hospital emergency rooms near closure due to the crush of so many illegals, with the rapid spread throughout the U.S. of MS-13, the super-violent illegal alien gang – with all this and more, why do U.S. officials choose to ignore the laws of the land and the will of the people to pursue, instead, policies of open borders and lax immigration enforcement? The answers to all this and much more are in Whistleblower’s “ALIEN NATION” issue. Is there hope? Or is America lost to a demographic invasion destined to annihilate its traditional Judeo-Christian culture, and to the ever-growing likelihood that nuclear-armed jihadists will cross our porous borders and wreak unthinkable destruction here? There most definitely is hope, according to this issue of Whistleblower. Although most politicians of both major political parties have long since abdicated their responsibility for securing America’s borders and dealing effectively with the millions already here illegally, there are a few exceptions – most notably Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo. May’s Whistleblower includes an exclusive sneak preview of Tancredo’s forthcoming blockbuster book, “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security.” In an extended excerpt, Whistleblower presents Tencredo’s expert and inspired analysis of exactly how to solve the nation’s most vexing problem. * THE AZTLAN INVASION & THE LA RAZA FASCIST PARTY FOR MEXICAN SUPREMACY “The radicals seek nothing less than secession from the United States whether to form their own sovereign state or to reunify with Mexico. Those who desire reunification with Mexico are irredentists who seek to reclaim Mexico’s “lost” territories in the American Southwest.” MULTICULTURALISM, IMMIGRATION AND AZTLAN By Maria Hsia Chang Professor of Political Science, University of Nevada Reno One of the standard arguments invoked by those in favor of massive immigration into the United States is that our country is founded on immigrants who have always been successfully assimilated into America’s mainstream culture and society. As one commentator put it, “Assimilation evokes the misty past of Ellis Island, through which millions entered, eventually seeing their descendants become as American as George Washington.”1 Nothing more vividly testifies against that romantic faith in America’s ability to continuously assimilate new members than the events of October 16, 1994 in Los Angeles. On that day, 70,000 people marched beneath “a sea of Mexican flags” protesting Proposition 187, a referendum measure that would deny many state benefits to illegal immigrants and their children. Two weeks later, more protestors marched down the street, this time carrying an American flag upside down. Both protests point to a disturbing and rising phenomenon of Chicano separatism in the United States — the product of a complex of forces, among which are multiculturalism and a generous immigration policy combined with a lax border control. The Problem Chicanos refer to “people of Mexican descent in the United States” or “Mexican Americans in general.” Today, there are reasons to believe that Chicanos as a group are unlike previous immigrants in that they are more likely to remain unassimilated and unintegrated, whether by choice or circumstance — resulting in the formation of a separate quasi-nation within the United States. More than that, there are Chicano political activists who intend to marry cultural separateness with territorial and political self-determination. The more moderate among them aspire to the cultural and political autonomy of “home rule”. The radicals seek nothing less than secession from the United States whether to form their own sovereign state or to reunify with Mexico. Those who desire reunification with Mexico are irredentists who seek to reclaim Mexico’s “lost” territories in the American Southwest. Whatever their goals, what animates all of them is the dream of Aztlan. According to legend, Aztlan was the ancestral homeland of the Aztecs which they left in journeying southward to found Tenochtitlan, the center of their new civilization, which is today’s Mexico City. Today, the “Nation of Aztlan” refers to the American southwestern states of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, portions of Nevada, Utah, Colorado, which Chicano nationalists claim were stolen by the United States and must be reconquered (Reconquista) and reclaimed for Mexico. The myth of Aztlan was revived by Chicano political activists in the 1960s as a central symbol of Chicano nationalist ideology. In 1969, at the Chicano National Liberation Youth Conference in Denver, Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales put forth a political document entitled El Plan de Aztlan (Spiritual Plan of Aztlan). The Plan is a clarion call to Mexican-Americans to form a separate Chicano nation: In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historial heritage, but also of the brutal “gringo” invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the nothern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers …declare that the call of our blood is…our inevitable destiny…. Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops, and not to the foreign Europeans. We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent…. Brotherhood unites us, and love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come …. With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. How Chicanos are Unlike Previous Immigrants Brent A. Nelson, writing in 1994, observed that in the 1980s America’s Southwest had begun to be transformed into “a de facto nation” with its own culture, history, myth, geography, religion, education, and language. Whatever evidence there is indicates that Chicanos, as a group, are unlike previous waves of immigrants into the United States. In the first place, many Chicanos do not consider themselves immigrants at all because their people “have been here for 450 years” before the English, French, or Dutch. Before California and the Southwest were seized by the United States, they were the lands of Spain and Mexico. As late as 1780 the Spanish crown laid claim to territories from Florida to California, and on the far side of the Mississippi up to the Great Lakes and the Rockies. Mexico held title to much of Spanish possessions in the United States until the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo ended the Mexican-American war in 1848. As a consequence, Mexicans “never accepted the borders drawn up by the 1848 treaty.” That history has created among Chicanos a feeling of resentment for being “a conquered people,” made part of the United States against their will and by the force of arms. Their resentment is amply expressed by Voz Fronteriza, a Chicano student publication, which referred to Border Patrol officers killed in the line of duty as “pigs (migra)” trying to defend “the false frontier.” Chicanos are also distinct from other immigrant groups because of the geographic proximity of their native country. Their physical proximity to Mexico gives Chicanos “the option of life in both Americas, in two places and in two cultures, something earlier immigrants never had.” Geographic proximity and ease of transportation are augmented by the media. Radio and television keep the spoken language alive and current so that Spanish, unlike the native languages of previous immigrants into the United States, “shows no sign of fading.” A result of all that is the failure by Chicanos to be fully assimilated into the larger American society and culture. As Earl Shorris, author of Latinos: A Biography of the People, observed: “Latinos have been more resistant to the melting pot than any other group. Their entry en masse into the United States will test the limits of the American experiment….” The continuous influx of Mexican immigrants into the United States serve to continuously renew Chicano culture so that their sense of separateness will probably continue “far into the future….” There are other reasons for the failure of Chicano assimilation. Historically, a powerful force for assimilation was upward social mobility: Immigrants into the United States became assimilated as they rose in educational achievement and income. But today’s post-industrial American economy, with its narrower paths to upward mobility, is making it more difficult for certain groups to improve their socioeconomic circumstances. Unionized factory jobs, which once provided a step up for the second generation of past waves of immigrants, have been disappearing for decades. Instead of the diamond-shaped economy of industrial America, the modern American economy is shaped like an hourglass. There is a good number of jobs for unskilled people at the bottom, a fair number of jobs for the highly educated at the top, but comparatively few jobs for those in the middle without a college education or special skills. To illustrate, a RAND Corporation study forecasts that 85 percent of California’s new jobs will require post-secondary education. For a variety of reasons, the nationwide high-school dropout rate for Hispanics (the majority of whom are Chicano) is 30 percent — three times the rate for whites and twice the rate for blacks. Paradoxically, the dropout rate for Hispanics born in the United States is even higher than for young immigrants. Among Chicanos, high-school dropout rates actually rise between the second and third generations. Their low educational achievement accounts for why Chicanos as a group are poor despite being hardworking. In 1996, for the first time, Hispanic poverty rate began to exceed that of American blacks. In 1995, household income rose for every ethnic group except Hispanics, for whom it dropped 5 percent. Latinos now make up a quarter of the nation’s poor people, and are more than three times as likely to be impoverished than whites. This decline in income has taken place despite high rates of labor-force participation by Latino men, and despite an emerging Latino middle class. In California, where Latinos now approach one-third of the population, their education levels are far lower than those of other immigrants, and they earn about half of what native-born Californians earn. This means that, for the first time in the history of American immigration, hard work is not leading to economic advancement because immigrants in service jobs face unrelenting labor-market pressure from more recently arrived immigrants who are eager to work for less. The narrowing of the pathways of upward mobility has implications for the children of recent Mexican immigrants. Their ascent into the middle-class mainstream will likely be blocked and they will join children of earlier black and Puerto Rican migrants as part of an expanded multiethnic underclass. Whereas first generation immigrants compare their circumstances to the Mexico that they left — and thereby feel immeasurably better off — their children and grandchildren will compare themelves to other U.S. groups. Given their lower educational achievement and income, that comparison will only lead to feelings of relative deprivation and resentment. They are unlikely to be content as maids, gardeners, or fruit pickers. Many young Latinos in the second and third generations see themselves as locked in irremediable conflict with white society, and are quick to deride successful Chicano students as “wannabes.” For them, to study hard is to “act white” and exhibit group disloyalty. That attitude is part of the Chicano culture of resistance — a culture that actively resists assimilation into mainstream America. That culture is created, reinforced, and maintained by radical Chicano intellectuals, politicians, and the many Chicano Studies programs in U.S. colleges and universities. As examples, according to its editor, Elizabeth Martinez, the purpose of Five Hundred Years of Chicano History, a book used in over 300 schools throughout the West, is to “celebrate our resistance to being colonized and absorbed by racist empire builders.” The book calls the INS and the Border Patrol “the Gestapo for Mexicans.” For Rodolfo Acuna, author of Occupied America: The Chicano’s Struggle Toward Liberation, probably the most widely assigned text in U.S. Chicano Studies programs, the Anglo-American invasion of Mexico was “as vicious as that of Hitler’s invasion of Poland and other Central European nations….” The book also includes a map showing “the Mexican republic” in 1822 reaching up into Kansas and Oklahoma, and including within it Utah, Nevada, and everything west and south of there “This is country belongs to Mexico” is said by the Mexican Militant. This is a common teaching that the U.S. is really AZTLAN, belonging to Mexicans, which is taught to Mexican kids in Arizona and California through a LA Raza educational program funded by American Tax Payers via President Obama, when he gave LA RAZA $800,000.00 in March of 2009! ‘Diversity,’ Illegal Immigration and Destroying America

Now that official Washington’s political oxygen is being consumed by the latest school shooting, it’s easy to forget abiding disagreements about immigration policy. Yet, until supplanted by the current children’s crusade for gun control, it was the so-called “DACA kids” who had to be accommodated with a massive amnesty.
Just as we seem determined to ignore factors in mass murders like the pop culture’s role in inculcating a lust for violence – the more, the better, what passes for debate about illegal aliens is increasingly unmoored from any discussion of their impact on American society.
It’s time to reprise a 2003 warning by Democratic former Colorado governor Dick Lamm about a “secret plan” that is destroying our country through the combined effects of unchecked immigration, the “diversity” agenda and abandoning our national principle of “out of many, one.” This lunacy must end. . . .
