Dear America — a bad poem on a big French statue is not an immigration policy:
As I have written on many occasions, Mexico’s progress-averse culture (as described by Prof Lawrence Harrison) makes Mexicans some of the worst immigrants on earth because of the incompatibility of their values with ours. Mexicans’ disdain for education runs deep and lasts for generations, even when they reside in America.
In Mexico, kiddies bribe teachers for better grades — a cynicism made a little more understandable by a recent news report: For Mexico’s teachers, jobs are things to inherit or sell, and they’re on strike to keep it that way [Houston Chronicle, October 12, 2008].
PLUS: hey, I thought brown people couldn’t be “racist” (i.e., vocal about perceived behavioural differences between Group A and Group B)!
Oh wait: maybe this is ok because they’re ALL brown people. Oh something. My Leftoid Decoder Ring is still in the pawnshop cuz my ZOG cheque bounced…)
Like many workers at the meatpacking plant here, Raul A. Garcia, a Mexican-American, has watched with some discomfort as hundreds of Somali immigrants have moved to town in the past couple of years, many of them to fill jobs once held by Latino workers taken away in immigration raids.
Mr. Garcia has been particularly troubled by the Somalis’ demand that they be allowed special breaks for prayers that are obligatory for devout Muslims. The breaks, he said, would inconvenience everyone else.
“The Latino is very humble,” said Mr. Garcia, 73, who has worked at the plant, owned by JBS U.S.A. Inc., since 1994. “But they are arrogant,” he said of the Somali workers. “They act like the United States owes them.”
