A Source of Shame to the Immigrant Community

I regularly get America First 2008 email updates in order to stay in touch with what they are doing (this is not an endorsement). I got an email this evening that just angers me. (see below)

I would be all in favor of harsh sentences for gang-related crimes, and until our border has been secured, we should not be deporting arrested gang members, just to have them sneak back in. They should simply be locked up!!

This is the exact sort of thing that is at the heart of the cultural backlash against immigrants of Latino heritage. I wanted to make a public statement in calling to all Latino civil rights groups to publicly denounce the use of threats by MS 13 and Latin Kings. Whatever your view on immigration, race, and the border, violence and the threat of violence will not resolve anything, Latino community leaders must make that clear and loudly denounce it before the cameras!

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE LAKEWOOD, NJ RALLY PROTESTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ON AUGUST 25TH HAS BEEN COMPLETELY CANCELLED!!!!

I HAVE JUST SPOKEN TO OUR POLICE CHIEF HERE IN LAKEWOOD; WE HAVE CONCLUDED, AFTER RECEIVING THREATS FROM GANGS SUCH AS MS 13 AND LATIN KINGS HAVE THREATENED THE SAFETY TO OUR SPEAKERS, ORGANIZERS AND SUPPORTERS:

AND

WE DO NOT HAVE THE HUGE AMOUNT OF FUNDS TO OFFER  SUCH PROTECTION AS WAS GIVEN IN HAZELTON AND MORRISTOWN THEREFORE, WE MUST TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE SAFETY OF OUR TOWNSHIP OUR WONDERFUL SPEAKERS AND OUR  SUPPORTERS.

I WANTED TO PERSONALLY THANK AGAIN, ALL THOSE SPEAKERS WHO AGREED TO COME AND SPEAK AT THE RALLY - YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH IT MEANT TO ME. I WANT TO THANK ALL THOSE WHO I NEVER EVEN MET, WHO HELPED ME IN COUNTLESS WAYS - WITHOUT ANY OF YOU, I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO ALL THAT I DID.

I REFUSE TO ALLOW THE HATRED OF OTHER AMERICAN CITIZENS AND ILLEGALS TO DESTROY AND GIVE ANY OF US A BAD NAME -

PLEASE POST AND PASS ON THE WORD THAT THE RALLY HAS BEEN COMPLETELY CANCELLED SO THAT NO ONE SHOWS UP FOR A RALLY THAT WILL NOT BE TAKING PLACE.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR COUNTRY -

THIS IS MERELY A BUMP IN THE ROAD, AND IT CERTAINLY WON'T STOP ANY OF US FROM DOING WHAT WE FEEL IS RIGHT AND PRESERVING OUR NATION - THE BEST D___ COUNTRY IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!!!

Truly a shame that a group's free speech would be infringed upon by a group of simpleton thugs and criminals!

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…

RealClearPolitics: The Democrats Dither on Trade

The backtracking on free trade in South America has been among the frustrating news for me coming out of the beltway. Considering how the economic downturns in Latin America affect us through the increase in illegal immigration, I would think more Americans would be fighting for this one as loudly as they fought for the failed Immigration legislation. Democratic presidential candidates like to talk about "turning a page" in America's relations with the rest of the world. But what does that mean, in practical terms, on bread-and-butter issues such as trade? Are today's Democrats a party of open markets and economic development, or of market restrictions and job protection?The answer is that leading Democrats seem to want both -- they favor economic development overseas but not at the cost of U.S. jobs. That sounds like a coherent position until you begin to look carefully at the political choices in Latin America, a part of the world where …
