Mexican Immigrants Refuse To Assimilate, Claim "Binationality"

Bookmark and Share

Mexican immigrants, illegal and legal, have spoken out and now claim that they don't want to renounce their loyalty to Mexico. Even some of them who have taken the Oath of Allegiance, required when you become a citizen of the United States, say that they still remain loyal to Mexico. It's worth actually reading the Oath wherein it states: "I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;"

Right there it states that you renounce allegiance to any state of which you hold citizenship. So therefore this act of "dual citizenship" cannot exist. You cannot renounce all loyalty to another nation and become a citizen of the United States and still hold citizenship in another country wherein you state loyalty there.

This is totally ignored by many though and particularly it seems that the Mexicans that come here ignore this fact when they take the oath.

As President Bush and others call for assimilation of Latino immigrants, some Hispanics in La Villita and other parts of the country, including North Texas, are on what could be a collision course, pushing to be fully binational, with equal rights in Mexico and the United States and grounded in both societies.

"We're never giving up our Mexican roots," said Maria Cantu-Dougala, assistant vice president of Second Federal Savings and an American citizen. "I still consider myself Mexican. That's where we're so different from other immigrants. We just can't give it up."

You are not an American citizen if you still consider yourself a Mexican citizen. As for being "different" from other immigrants you are 100% correct. Other immigrants in the past have embraced America and assimilated into it. Sure you can hold onto your culture, but Mexicans in particular seem to hold onto their loyalty as well. Marching through the streets flying Mexican flags over the United States flag.

Where is this all leading in the long run? Nowhere good that's for sure.

The United States must avoid "balkanization" and has to maintain its national identity, common culture and common English language "or we will follow the path to the ash heap of history like the Roman Empire," said Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas.

"Arrogant nationalistic attitudes like this, which are blatant violations of American law, along with the uncontrolled mass migration and marching with Mexican flags have combined to push this country over the tipping point in favor of aggressive immigration law enforcement and strict border security," said Culberson, who has criticized White House immigration policy as lax.

That is exactly the issue. We cannot have a country divided such as it is. And we certainly can't allow people who encourage the ignoring of fitting into our society and rather trying to change it into the country they left.

[Migration expert Jonathan] Fox calls the phenomenon of Mexicans striving to be members of both U.S. and Mexican societies "civic binationality." It is one of several practices that suggest immigrants are finding new ways to integrate into the U.S., he said.

I like this notion of a "new way to integrate". They are not integrating. It is so prevalent that a recent Pew poll shows that 41% of Latino immigrants believe they don't need to learn English here and therefore probably aren't even trying. This is not a "new way" this is a lack of effort because they are here for all of the benefits without putting out any effort of their own.

This country will not progress unless the immigrants we let into this country actually actively try to improve the country. A large portions of immigrants let into this country legally do so without any regard to what they can contribute to the country through programs like the Visa Lottery where their name is pretty much drawn out of a hat. These immigrants are a drain on society.

There are an estimated 42 million Latinos in the U.S., almost 60 percent of them of Mexican descent. The Pew Hispanic Center in Washington estimates there are between 11.5 million and 12 million illegal immigrants in the country, a majority of them Mexican.

Under Mexican law, Mexicans naturalized in the U.S. may keep their Mexican citizenship. And for the first time this year, Mexico allowed its citizens abroad to vote in the country's presidential election.


In North Texas, about 80 percent of the approximately 1.5 million Hispanics are of Mexican heritage, and there is no unanimity among them about keeping a foot in both the U.S. and Mexico.

That's under Mexican law. Under our oath it is supposed to be renouncing citizenship to other countries. Apparently we have let this go on for too long and the law that is allowing this to continue and allowing immigrants to remain in our country without attempting to fit in needs to be repealed.

That is a truly worrisome and frightening blog entry. I am really upset that many hispanics DON'T want to fully integrate into American society. I think that people ought to be deported who admit such offences such as renouncing their oath of citizenship. Do words have ANY meaning anymore?

Just look at Canada, where Quebec has tried to break away from Canada at least twice. When there are too many people speaking more than one language, inevitably there will be deep divisions and, ultimately, calls for seperation from the unit as a whole.

Yet another tactic of the Mexican invasion.

Save all articles and blog posts of this nature. Give them to your children so they can pass it on to theirs. Why do this you might ask? Because not too long after we're all dead, this exact same thing will happen to Canada after the United States has been fully infested and destroyed by this plague.
