Ask a Mexican on Hispanic Conservative Politicians in America

GOP Senator Mel Martinez authored a decent compromise bill to resolve the growing illegal immigration problem in the United States. He broke up the group of 11 million illegals into three classes, depending on the amount of time they were in the country. Those in the United States for two or fewer years would be expelled. Those in the country for two to five years would get in line and pay a fine. Those who had been in the country for longer than five years would be granted full citizenship following payment of a fine.

I believe that rampant illegal (and I'm not afraid to use the word "illegal" because it is apt and accurate) immigration is not good for the country, not for the born and naturalized citizenry, nor good for the illegal immigrant, many of whom are looking for the rule of law. I believe that the rising number of conservative Hispanics (New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, Brian Sandoval of Nevada, and Florida Senator Marco Rubio) in the country are making the growing case for Hispanics, whether born or naturalized in this country, who are tired of unchecked illegal immigration. Please share your thoughts on this trend.

Mira, muy chingón in saying "illegal"! And I bet you some of your best friends are "Hispanics" and you took four years of English in high school, too! First off, Mel Martinez's proposal is tantamount to apartheid and is as laughable a ploy to get Mexis to vote Republican as a recent proposal by the Lincoln Club of Orange County, one of the most powerful fundraising groups in the United States, to "solve" our nation's illegal-immigrant "problem" by letting them become permanent residents, but not allowing them to ever become citizens (that's how Germany treated its Turks, and look at how that turned out).

There is no "rise" in conservative "Hispanics" in los Estados Unidosvendidos have always existed, and as I've argued in this very columna many times, Mexicans are natural-born conservatives (libertarians, really) who don't go with Republicans because of their demonization of Mexican culture. And lastly, ain't it hilarious how Susana Martinez is spending thousands of dollars in campaign funds to try to prove her grandparents weren't illegals? Who cares how your abuelitos came into this country, chula — your frente still has a nopal on it! That you're wasting your time and money just to improve your standing with your Republican puppet masters at a time of duress for your state shows how selfish and deluded you truly are. Besides, haven't you heard of Ancestry.com?

My wife is an elementary school teacher. She claims that Mexican children with Anglo first names (such as Brad or Ashley) do better in school and on standardized exams than Mexican children with, well, Mexican first names (such as Fernando or Lupe). Your thoughts, please.

"The Relationship Between First Names and Teacher Expectations for Achievement Motivation," co-authored by Tracy N. Anderson-Clark, Raymond J. Green, and Tracy B. Henley for the March 2008 issue of the Journal of Language and Social Psychology, found that teachers in a test case conducted in Dallas elementary schools consistently gave lower achievement scores to a sample student with a Latino first name (Xavier) than a gabacho one (Ethan) when all other factors were equal. But rather than put the blame squarely on teacher bigotry, the researchers targeted the names themselves. "Although names can represent family, culture, heritage, religion, and parents' hopes and dreams," the researchers concluded, "parents should understand that hopes and dreams can also be compromised by the power of a name." ¡Pinche pendejos! Parents: Proudly name your kiddies Xochitl, Tenorio, and your boys Guadalupe. Also? The Mexican knows more than a few wab Brads and Ashleys who are as dumb as Susana Martinez.

This column sucks. it only displays foul language by a crappy author. If Hispanics came to this country to become better person we would all see a different story on the news. The reality is that they all come to make money to send back home not to invest in the U.S economy. I would dare to say that there is a great difference between a Hispanic (Mostly crappy neighborhoods, no desire to have cleaner and nicer streets, and the lack of education) and the mostly White communities (Houses are cleaner, streets are nice, and no need to be afraid while walking your dog at night. There is not abundance of graffiti on back alley or walls.). It is as easy as comparing Fry's to Food City. Truth is most Hispanics don't care about this country (U.S) cause in the end they all root for the their country but none would want to go back. I am of Hispanic/Latino descent and i love this country (U.S) and every day i challenge my self to become a better person. If every immigrant (not just Hispanics) did this we would not see columns like this on the web.

Rock on Bro! You are an American and I honor you as a brother. The others, as you say, are simply Mexicans looking to take advantage of a milky tit for as long as they can.

Hopefully, anyone of hispanic decent that has gotten far enough to become elected to public office in the U.S. has the sense not to let all you filthy illegal spicsicans turn this country into the fucking shithole you snuck out of to be here.

Blacks and browns will rule America when there is nothing left. And, the time is near. The US will become something along the lines of Haiti. No power, no money, chaos. Whites with the money and power will have left the country. The once powerful military will be long decimated through draw down, lack of refurbishment, and self destruction projects.

Thanks for making me laugh while I learn more about our United States culture, 'cause we all come from somewhere else if we look back far enough. It takes all of us and our varied views to make this country great.

Hispanics are creeping up on the gabacho. Pretty soon all the gringos will go back to the East were they all landed in the first place.

Please do not bother, we can see already when we visit Mexico how well you run your home country. If that is the best job you can do we do not need your help.

nicK dangeR Mighty white name there nicK, Like you and the rest of the peckerwoods have done such a great job here in Hillbilly Heaven. I always describe Az as "The State which Most Closely Resembles a Third World Country" and my comment has nothing to do with the racial or ethnic makeup of the state. You might want to ask a Native American just who the "Illegals" really are in the Southwest.

So what if she is a full fledged "Americano" as you state?( By the way it should be Americana not Americano). She is still one big pendeja for spending all those thousands in campaign money trying to prove her grandparents citizenship.
