Action Alert! Action Alert!

*** We MUST save our country from ALIEN OUTLAW INVASION!

Despite opposition from an OVERWHELMING majority of Americans, President
Bush has decided that Hispanic votes in November’s election are more
important than the integrity, sovereignty and security of the United States.

The President has unveiled a plan that would grant blanket amnesty to some 8
to 11 million criminal aliens residing illegally in the U.S. This not only
rewards criminal behavior—it encourages more of the same!

WE MUST STOP THIS PROPOSAL!

The President frequently repeats that “we are a nation of immigrants” and
that there’s “work that no other Americans will do, so these illegal aliens
are needed to man the jobs.” BALONEY!

The hard-working entrepreneurs from centuries ago braved dangerous journeys
and death in order to not only come to America, but to BECOME AMERICANS!

The ILLEGAL aliens of today have ZERO plan or desire to assimilate to our
country. They don’t speak English and NEVER will. They know nothing of our
culture or customs and NEVER will!

The White House has NO plan to stop future invasions—in fact, with this new
policy, illegal immigration is ENCOURAGED!

This will SEVERELY harm our national security!

Illegal immigrants in California and Arizona are already BANKRUPTING schools
and hospitals because they don’t pay for the services! All this at the
expense of tax-paying, LEGAL Americans! This is destroying our communities!

The President even wants illegal immigrants to be able to COLLECT SOCIAL
SECURITY. Social Security is already in arrears! Now President Bush wants
to start doling out retirement money to criminal non-residents???!!!

WE MUST ACT NOW!

WE MUST ACT OFTEN!

** Action to Take **

1. Call the White House and DEMAND that President Bush REVOKE this insane
policy proposal! Recall that The President introduced a similar plan two
years ago—but the outcry from grassroots patriots KILLED IT. We must do the
same AGAIN! White House Switchboard: (202) 456-1111 OR (202) 456-1414.

2. Call your Representative and tell him/her to work hard to DEFEAT The
President’s illegal immigration proposal! Your Representative MUST know
that he or she has your support so that they can take action with
confidence! The White House will be lobbying our Representatives HARD—so we
must do the same! House Switchboard: (202) 225-3121.

3. Call BOTH of your Senators and tell them to work hard to DEFEAT The
President’s illegal immigration proposal! AGAIN, they will be under
tremendous pressure from the White House—they must know you are in their
corner! Senate Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.

***PLEASE FORWARD TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE***

MEXICO CITY JOURNAL
-----------------------------------

Of Gringos and Old Grudges: This Land Is Their Land

by
Tim Weiner

MEXICO CITY, January 8,2004 - In the American South,
William Faulkner once wrote, the past isn't dead. It
isn't even past.

This may become truer the farther south one goes.

In the United States, almost no one remembers the war
that Americans fought against Mexico more than 150
years ago. In Mexico, almost no one has forgotten.

The war cut this country in two, and "the wound never
really healed," said Miguel Soto, a Mexico City
historian. It took less than two years, and ended with
the gringos seizing half of Mexico, taking the land
that became America's Wild West: California, Texas,
New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and beyond.

In Mexico, they call this "the Mutilation." That may
help explain why relations between the nations are
sometimes so tense.

As President Bush prepares to fly down to Mexico from
Texas, where the war began back in 1846, the debate
here over how to relate to the United States is
heating up once again.

The question of the day is the more than 20 million
Mexicans who now live in the United States.

But sensitivities about sovereignty surround every
thorny issue involving Americans in Mexico. Can
Americans buy land? Sometimes. Drill for oil? Never.
Can American officers comb airports in Mexico? Yes.
Carry guns as lawmen? No. Open and close the border at
will? Well, they try.

To realize that the border was fixed by war and
controlled by the victors is to understand why some
Mexicans may not love the 21st-century American
colossus. Yet they adore the old American ideals of
freedom, equality and boundless opportunity, and they
keep voting, by the millions, with their feet.

In "a relationship of love and of hatred," as Mr. Soto
says, bitter memories sometimes surface like old
shrapnel under the skin.

Fragments of the old war stand in the slanting morning
sunlight at an old convent here in Mexico City, a
sanctuary seized by invading American troops in 1847,
now the National Museum of Interventions, which
chronicles the struggle.

"The war between Mexico and the United States has a
different meaning for Mexicans and Americans," said
the museum's director, Alfredo Hernández Murillo. "For
Americans, it's one more step in the expansion that
began when the United States was created. For Mexicans,
the war meant we lost half the nation. It was very
damaging, and not just because the land was lost.

"It's a symbol of Mexico's weakness throughout history
in confronting the United States. For Mexicans, it's
still a shock sometimes to cross the border and see
the Spanish names of the places we lost."

Those places have names like Los Angeles, San
Francisco, San Diego, Santa Fe, El Paso, San Antonio;
the list is long.

The war killed 13,780 Americans, and perhaps 50,000 or
more Mexicans — no one knows the true number. It was
the first American war led by commanders from West
Point. These were men like Ulysses S. Grant and
William Tecumseh Sherman, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson
Davis. A little more than a decade later, Grant and
Sherman battled Lee and Davis in the Civil War.

Historians are still fighting over how and why the
battles of the Mexican War began. Some say it was
Mexico's fault for trying to stop the secession of
what was then (and to some, still is) the Republic of
Texas. Some say it was an imperial land grab by the
president of the United States.

President James K. Polk did confide to his diary that
the aim of the war was "to acquire for the United
States — California, New Mexico and perhaps some other
of the northern provinces of Mexico." When it was won,
in February 1848, he wrote, "There will be added to
the United States an immense empire, the value of
which 20 years hence it would be difficult to
calculate." Nine days later, prospectors struck gold
in California.

Aftershocks still resonate from the Mexican War — or,
as the Mexicans have it, "the American invasion." The
students who walk through the National Museum of
Interventions still gasp at a lithograph standing next
to an American flag.

It shows Gen. Winfield Scott riding into Mexico City's
national square — "the halls of Montezuma," in the
words of the Marine Corps Hymn — to seize power and
raise the flag. He had followed the same invasion
route as the 16th-century Spanish conquerors of Mexico.
The American occupation lasted 11 months.

Many of the 75,000 Mexicans living in the newly
conquered American West lost their rights to own land
and live as they pleased. It was well into the 20th
century before much of the land was settled and
civilized.

Now, that civilization is taking another turn. More
than half of the 20 million Mexicans north of the
border live on the land that once was theirs. Some 8.5
million live in California — a quarter of the
population. Nearly half the people of New Mexico have
roots in old Mexico. Mexico is, in a sense, slowly
reoccupying its former property.

"History extracts its costs with the passage of time,"
said Jesús Velasco Márquez, a professor who has long
studied the war. "We are the biggest minority in the
United States, and particularly in the territory that
once was ours."
