Mexico Sucks

That's right, Mexico sucks, and they suck in more ways than one. Let me start by telling you that I don't like and have never liked Mexico or its backwater culture. I don't like the food, I don't like the women, and I don't like the language. Also, I don't like their climate, I don't like their economy nor do I like their government. I just don't like Mexico.

For those of you who sense a pattern emerging here, I assure you that I have come by my dislike of our dysfunctional southern neighbors honestly, and after reading what I have to say herein, I believe that you will understand my point of view. In fact, I'm confident that you will adopt it as your own.

Why? Well, that's a big question, isn't it? I don't make a habit of bullshitting my readers, so let's get to the core of the problem, and I have a lot to say this week.

I want to begin by laying a little groundwork. First, I need to define what illegal immigration is, and then go on to explain why it's such a problem in the first place.

An illegal immigrant isn't necessarily someone who stows away on a truck or a boat, or even one who swims the Rio Grande near to a hole in the fence, although those definitions do apply. Some illegal immigrants enter the country legally and then choose to overstay or violate their visas. In fact, I'm sure you know a few who have done just that.

So why is this a problem? First of all, from a purely black and white point of view, it's illegal by definition. According to the Federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A): (Section 274)

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he:
  • assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or

  • encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or

  • knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

NOTE: That's all a direct quote, folks. I take no responsibility for the above "s/he" bullshit or other jargon. --Alan

Okay, that's cleared up. But the next question is "Why is it illegal in the first place?" I know it's a good question because I have asked myself the very same thing, and it is deserving of an answer. I searched high and low for that answer from someone wiser than myself, and the best one I've seen reads as follows:

Apologists for illegal immigration like to paint it as a victimless crime. But in fact, illegal immigration causes substantial harm to American citizens and legal immigrants, particularly those in the most vulnerable sectors of our population--the poor, minorities, and children.

Illegal immigration causes an enormous drain on public funds. The seminal study of the costs of immigration by the National Academy of Sciences found that the taxes paid by immigrants do not cover the cost of services received by them. We cannot provide high quality education, health care, and retirement security for our own people if we continue to bring in endless numbers of poor, unskilled immigrants.

Additionally, job competition by waves of illegal immigrants willing to work at substandard wages and working conditions depresses the wages of American workers, hitting hardest at minority workers and those without high school degrees.

Illegal immigration also contributes to the dramatic population growth overwhelming communities across America--crowding school classrooms, consuming already limited affordable housing, and straining precious natural resources like water, energy, and forestland.

Now that we've cleared the air on that point, let's get to the part you've come here for: Me bitching about it.

It's a given that the majority of our illegals, far and away, come from Mexico. In fact, Mexicans so dominate the tallies of illegal immigrants to this country that the others are negligible

Why are we getting so many illegal aliens here in the first place? There are lots of reasons, but the short answer is that Mexico is a socialist country whose government doesn't permit the ownership of private property, such as land. If you didn't sleep through most of your high school civics class, you'll remember that Socialism can't work for very long without a free market economy to prop it up, (read: feed upon). Like a vindictive turd you just can't cut free from your ass hairs, Mexico is slowly circling the toilet bowl and is trying to drag us down with it.

But I know you people and your goddamned whiny-assed prattle about how they just come here to work and they've got a right to migrate and blah blah blah. You're full of shit. Mexico's economy is none of our business and it never has been. Their lack of jobs is none of our business and it never has been. We are not responsible for Mexico's cockroach-infested rathole of an economy and we never were. Mexican poverty is not something you can lay at the feet of Americans and claim it's somehow our fault and it never should be.

Stop feeling guilty over something you didn't have a hand in, people. I know that all these "special interest groups", (read: proffessional whiners), in this country have conditioned you to assume fetal position whenever you get accused of wrongdoing, even when it's something literally hundreds of years in the past, but believe me when I tell you that we have no obligation to do anything for these people who won't help themselves. (On a side note: In case you delusional people think that we are somehow looked upon as angels of mercy and kindness in this country, don't travel. The world as a whole hates our guts and will gladly kill us, given a chance. Just try vacationing down in Central America and see what happens to you.)

Getting back to the point, they know they're in trouble, but instead of looking to reform their sorry-ass state and work toward real, sustainable change, they promote stagnation by encouraging citizens to actively travel abroad in search of work and remitting foreign funds, among other things. Mexico has hit rock bottom and is kept going purely by drug trade and illegal aliens mooching off of us and dragging our dollars south of the border with them. There. I said it. This whole thing is lopsided and we're too stupid to put an end to it. Like all systems that are way out of balance, eventually we will strike equilibrium. ...or will we?

I daresay that we WON'T. Mexico has fed upon itself until there was nothing left, and now it's feeding on us too. There is a drain on the Mexican end of this thing and it's getting worse all the time. (Official figures show that "migration" (read: illegal immigration) is at an all-time high) Don't believe what the Mexican President of the Week tells you about wanting to stop illegal aliens and drug traffic. He's full of shit. Those are the only things that are keeping him and his little third world country going. I suppose you want proof of this assertion, so here you go. This was published by the Mexican government on or around January 5, 2005

The Mexican government has also recently published a new document along the same lines. (link) (Opens in a new window.)

It's chief difference was that it was not done in a "comic book" style as was the original.(This site has the origial document along with english translations of each page. The link opens in a new window.)

But to get back on the drain remittances to Mexico is causing, I found this quote from President Fox himself:

"Remittances 'are our biggest source of foreign income, bigger than oil, tourism or foreign investment,' Fox told reporters after a meeting with Mexican-American businessmen.

'The 20 million Mexicans in the United States generate a gross product that is slightly higher than the $600 billion generated by Mexicans in Mexico,' Fox said, adding that his country has the ninth-largest economy in the world.

'If we could add up the two products, Mexico would be the third or fourth economy in the world,' he said."

Source: San Diego Union-Tribune

Of fucking course Mexico isn't wanting to stop the flow of illegals. The total remittances back to Mexican soil is over $16 billion annually!

Further, Mexico has committed some 118 acts of war against the United States in the last five years, (as of January 26, 2006), by invading US soil and on some occasions actually firing upon US citizens. SOURCE (Opens in a new window.)

In summary, Mexico:

  • Can not or will not care for it's citizens and encourages remittance of foreign funds, which is, to my eyes, a form of theft,

  • Fosters a society in which it is preferable to cut and run rather than take responsibility and bring about change,

  • Crosses our Southern border with impunity with its military, (read: Invades US soil whenever the fuck they feel like it,)

  • and
  • Is audacious enough to demand that we allow MORE immigrants from Mexico.

So here's the big question, people: Why are we off halfway around the world fighting with ragheads that want nothing more than to kill each other when we have greasy little bastards in our own back yard who are already shooting at us, robbing us blind and daring to make demands of us to allow them to do so easier? I think we should focus more on our own borders, especially the southern one.

Tell me, how does that fucking taco taste now?

If they wanna move here, they should at least make an attempt at doing so legally, and LEARN THE LANGUAGE!!!

You make some good points and if you ever want to clean up some of the language.. it'd be awesome to have you post something on our website. In fact, after reading some of your articles I'd even want to know if you'd consider being a regular writer (write an article every 3-6 weeks.) Anyways, we do this for fun... Feel free to email me at

I like Mexicans myself. I think that, properly seasoned, they taste pretty good placed in their own tortillas.
