Mexico claims California by eminent domain…Look for this headline by 2050!

I know that I was not the only one bothered by the plethora of Mexican flags at the supposed “Pro-Immigrant” rallies over the weekend. I mean, if their goal is to come to America and share in the American Dream, one would think that they would be waving the red, white and blue of the American flag. But is that really their goal?

I am all for immigration… legal immigration. My wife and her family are immigrants from the Fiji Islands. But they went through all the hassle and paperwork it took for them to come to the United States and become legal residents and eventually citizens. They recognize that their being able to come here and live as citizens is a privilege, not a right.

But many of those who marched in the streets this weekend were declaring something all together different. In their chant of "Estamos Aqui" , which is Spanish for "We're Here!" they are claiming what we used to call “Squatter’s Rights” . In other words, this is their land simply because they are here.
