‘True history’ of America


In the Folk era, I loved Woody Guthrie’s song “Deportee” about the plight of the migrant workers.

A headline in the April 3 edition of “Human Events” Weekly showed Pasadena High School students carrying signs declaring: “If you think I’m illegal because I’m Mexican, learn the true history because I’m in my homeland.”

The arrogance of this lie boils my blood.

President Bush conspired with Mexican President Fox to allow more illegals into the U.S. and give them amnesty. This is no surprise to members of the John Birch society who have been exposing the United Nations formation of a one-world government for 50 years.

Bush calls them “guest” workers, but since a guest is someone willingly invited, the illegals are more accurately “invaders.” The press calls them “immigrants,” but this is an insult to the group most outraged by the illegals – the Hispanics who immigrated legally.

Illegals state that they have confused loyalties. If they want the benefits of U.S. citizenship, there should be no confusion of loyalty. They need to take our oath legally!

The true history is that Mexico seceded from Spain in 1821, California seceded from Mexico in 1836, and the U.S. paid Mexico $15 million to purchase California, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado at the Treaty of Guadeloupe Hidalgo of 1848.

Let’s tell the illegals what the true history is and deport every single one! Adios Deportee! Woody, shame on you! “This land was bought for you and me!”
