(This article first ran in
March of 2006. With the attempt in the US Senate to revive the "Amnesty Bill", I thought it apropo to revive this article! Enjoy!...Ed)
Ever hear of a place called “Aztlan”? How about "Republica del Norte".
Well, if you’re American and you live in the US you had better bone up on these two locations. And quick!
What are Aztlan and Republica del Norte? Well as of today, we call it: California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas. Still not making sense to you? Ok. Lets dig a little and see if we can uncover what this is all about.
A breakaway of US states is becoming ever more possible as the months and years go by. Now, I’m not talking about a North and South split, nor a red state, blue state, split. I AM talking about the lost of our Southwestern States!
Our lax immigration laws and the terrible enforcement of the laws we have on the books today have resulted in an influx of Mexicans into the Southwest that is overtaking the North American population. Those people have loyalties to Mexico first, over the US. The want the US dollars but their heart remains with Mexico.
Experts tell us we have less than two years to stop this and turn it around or we will certainly have a breakup of the United States. All this has been brought to us courtesy of Mexico and the US Government’s failure to secure our borders.
How, you ask, can this breakup happen? It’s quite simple, really. Studies tell us that within 30 years Latinos will make up more than 50% of the population of California. Once that happens a secessionist movement is almost certain. The Latinos will be looking for “Self Determination”. It could even result in that mythical land of “Aztlan”.
Aztlan is thought to be the place the ancient Aztecs originated. Latino experts tell us Aztlan is an area that includes California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and parts of Colorado and Texas. The aim is to eventually create a state called the “Republica del Norte”… the Republic of the North. It would be a sovereign state and would be comprised of the American Southwest and the northern Mexican states and it is thought that plans are to eventually merge with Mexico. Many feel the Mexican government is encouraging this movement.
Think all this is just smoke and mirrors? Well consider this: As a result of terrible U.S. immigration policies and truly awful enforcement of the Immigration laws, the US government has allowed a steady stream of 1 million illegal immigrants a year to enter the US. We here in North Carolina know, first hand, they are not becoming a part of our society; they are building a separate, active Hispanic community within ours. Therein lies the clear and present danger.
Even though the budget of the US Border Patrol has nearly tripled in 5 years it has made no impact on the numbers of illegal Mexicans crossing our southern border into the US. And even worse… the Mexican government is helping those illegal immigrants get into our country! Did you know that Mexico has an “Office for Mexicans Abroad” that provides survival kits for Mexicans who seek to enter the U.S. illegally? Well, they do!
The United States of America is being invaded. In broad daylight we are being overrun… and our government refuses to do anything about it.
Those of us paying attention to this invasion and crying out in alarm are called racists, and bigots, anti-immigrant, and even worse. It is a most effective weapon and the Hispanics use it well.
I want to see policies to quell illegal immigration a part of the Republican Platform in the next Presidential campaign. In fact, by their sins of omission, they have worsened the problem.
One thing… the Federal Government would do well to heed the calls of the Southwestern states for assistance in defending the border. If help is not forthcoming, from Washington, soon… those states, and the people who live along our southern border, are going to take matters into their own hands. It will not be pretty. It will however, be self-defense!
