re: #36 ggt

I did some research on the Mexican Immigration issue some time ago. What I found out is that people from Mexico have been coming and going since the Mexican-American War. Until the War on Drugs it wasn’t such big issue. Well, it was—Ceasar Chavez and all, but not an MAJOR ELECTION issue —not like it is now.

In the past, those coming and going were workers —now they are both workers and baddy baddy criminals. The War on Drugs has created the situation, IMHO.

The movements of the indigenous peoples along USA and Mexico’s borders has been going on for a very long time. Papago, or Tohono O’odham as they are known now, have always called the Sonoran Desert home. The desert covers both USA and Mexican lands.

Just trying to muddy the waters… :)
