    Why It's Important for Americans to Understand Mexico

    Why It's Important for Americans to Understand Mexico

    Mexico is our next-door neighbor but it seems many Americans are not well-informed about it.

    Wrong and outdated impressions of Mexico affect our policymakers as well. This is particularly true regarding border and immigration policy.

    After all, we share a border of 1,954 miles with Mexico. That’s the border over which millions of Mexicans and non-Mexicans have invaded the U.S. over the past few years, facilitated by the Biden administration.

    Consider a few relevant Mexico topics:

    Wealth and Poverty

    Americans think of Mexico as a poor country. And it is, compared to the United States.
    But Mexico is wealthier and has a higher standard of living than most countries in Latin America and Africa.

    If we do that, though, we are enabling the ruling classes of these countries to dump their poor people on to the United States without solving the problems in their own countries.

    There are, of course, many poor Mexicans. But doesn’t Mexico itself, with all its wealth, have a responsibility to help its own poor people?

    It’s easy to fall into the “just let all the poor people in” trap when it comes to Mexico or any other Third World country.

    Mexican Meddling

    We have heard about Russian meddling in recent years. I don’t doubt there is some of that.

    But any meddling perpetrated by the Russians is dwarfed by the widespread interference carried on by the Mexican government and its agents in the United States.

    Mexico operates 52 consulates on U.S. soil. It’s the biggest consular network in the world. Yet you hardly hear of it.

    It’s as if Americans don’t see Mexico as a country with its own interests, which can be opposed to those of the United States.

    Immigration Motives

    Americans have a very romanticized view of immigration.

    When I resided in Mexico, I came to understand that Mexicans see immigration differently than Americans do.

    Americans see immigration to our country as a great honor.

    Look at what a great country we are, everybody in the world wants to come here and become an American.

    But not everybody in the world sees it that way.

    Mexicans sometimes told me they wanted to emigrate to the United States.

    Not one of them, however, told me he wanted to go the U.S. for freedom or to become an American.

    They come here for the money, for the benefits.

    With the current prevalence of dual citizenship, promoted by our own State Department, it’s easy to be a citizen of both the U.S. and Mexico, which makes it easier to milk those benefits!

    Mexican Racial Stratification

    Many Americans are unaware of the racial stratification of Mexican society. There are exceptions, but the richer Mexicans are, the more likely they are to be white, and the poorer they are, the more likely they are to be Indian.

    Most Mexicans are mestizos, with both European and Indian ancestors. Even the mestizo majority forms a spectrum comprised of mestizos who are either mostly white with a little Indian, or mostly Indian with a little white.

    You see Mexico’s racial stratification reflected among Mexican immigrants. Yet we’re not supposed to talk about it.

    Happiness

    According to the polls I’ve seen, Mexicans are happier on average than Americans. That’s what they tell pollsters. So why bring them all here?

    Conclusion

    It is not America’s job to reform or run Mexico.

    That approach is counter-productive.

    Mexicans run their own country, that’s how it should be. We can’t expect Mexico to meet our expectations.

    At the same time, we shouldn’t let the Mexican government try to run our immigration policy.

    Good fences make good neighbors.

    In order to truly understand Mexico, we have to approach it on its own terms, with its own culture and politics.

    I invite readers of Border Hawk to visit my new website, the Mexico News Report, in which I intend to cover aspects of Mexican society that aren’t being covered by the U.S. mainstream media.

    I think the more we truly understand Mexico the more we can make better policy decisions.

    Mexico is our neighbor from hell.

    And now Canada is fast becoming our neighbor from hell allowing them to come here illegally across our northern border.

    Send them back! End the free stuff. No birthright citizenship.

    No path to stay.

    The elites in Mexico want to dump their unwanted trash on our backs to pay for.

    The elites in America want the overbreeding, poverty-stricken, criminal trash for votes.

    They do not care if we are destroyed as they live behind their gates and walls or who is raped and murdered for their votes.

    We need to build a Panama Canal from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific to serve as a barrier to keep them out and create a new shipping channel that WE control. There are your "shovel ready" jobs!
