Remember the Alamo! PDF Print E-mail

Last year while in San Antonio I visited the Alamo with my grandkids.  Whenever I enter the Alamo I’m overcome with emotion.  Particularly when I read the account of the battle I find it difficult to hold back my tears.Most native Texans — and others from out of state, I suppose — can readily name some of the heroes who fought at the Alamo:  Bonham, Bowie, Crockett, Travis, Houston are names synonymous with the great rallying battle for Texas independence from Mexico.  Historians record that after 13 days of intense fighting, the battle ended on March 6, 1836, when thousands of Mexican troops led by Gen. Santa Anna overcame the church-fort held by 187 valiant Texans.  The brave Texans fought to the last man, inflicting 1,544 casualties on the Mexican Army.Leaving the Alamo I stopped to read the inscription on the Cenotaph, a monument that stands almost in front of the Alamo.  Reading the names of the heroes on the Cenotaph, I was beaming with pride when I read several Spanish surnames.  There weren’t many, but they are there:  Andres Nava, Toribio D. Losoya, Juan Antonio Padillo, Gregorio Esparza, Jose Maria Guerrero and others are carved on this beautiful edifice symbolizing freedom.  I had never heard or read of my newfound Tejano (Texan) heroes but was determined to read up on them.  One of the reasons I was so ecstatic on seeing the names of these Tejano heroes was that when traveling to San Antonio one of my grandsons asked me, “Grandpa, are we Mexicans?”  I said, “No Paul, we are Americans.  Why do you ask?”  “Grandpa, the kids in school make fun of me because they say I’m not a Mexican like them.”  Here I must explain that my grandkids are half Anglo and attend All Saints Catholic School, which has a large Hispanic student body in my old barrio (neighborhood) of El Norte (The North Side).While at the Alamo I got a brochure where visitors could go view a documentary at one of the missions on Pleasanton Rd. that showed how San Antonio was founded and described the Battle of Alamo.  Shortly, I, along with my family drove to Mission San Jose to view the documentary.  After viewing the documentary I was never so proud of being a Texan and proud that Mexican Texans (Tejanos) engaged in the Battle of the Alamo to free Texas from Mexico.  As we traveled back to our hotel I asked my grandson, “Paul, what are you going to tell your want to be Mexican friends at school?”  Paul answered, “Grandpa, I’m going to tell them that I’m a proud American and a proud Tejano who doesn’t give a flip of being a Mexican!”My fellow Texans, when are we going to join forces and demand that our Federal Government enforce our immigration laws?  When will we demand that our spineless politicians from both major parties tell those from whatever country, who have broken our immigration laws have no right to do so and then protest that we Americans must approve and condone it.  And finally, since when do those who were elected to protect our borders turn a blind eye to the chaos and lawlessness that prevails in our southern border and chastise individuals like my newfound Alamo like hero Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona.In the 1980s I worked closely with the Reagan Administration along with Sen. Alan Simpson (R) and Sen. Romano Mazzoli (D) on drafting the Amnesty Immigration Bill where several million illegals were granted amnesty.  The bill strongly stated that businesses that hired illegal workers would be heavily fined.  Folks, that law has never been enforced and so now we have millions more wanting amnesty.  I can guarantee that if we grant amnesty to law breakers in a few years millions more will come here illegally.  It is time we elect politicians who have the spine to stop this nonsense!My fellow Texans, how much longer are you going to tolerate this lawlessness, where an illegal can rape your wife or daughter, kill you or a loved one, shoot a law officer, run drugs and human cargo into our country and safely return to Mexico without fear of being extradited to face punishment for their misdeeds in the United States.  How does it rub you my fellow Texans when American students are not allowed to wear a shirt with our American flag on Cinco de Mayo (May, 5th).  Personally, I, like Gov. Jan Brewer, am sick and tired of it.I have nothing against those wishing to immigrate to our country from wherever.  But by golly they must do it in a manner in how our immigration laws are structured.  Furthermore, those who champion the rights of illegal immigrants in my opinion are aiding and abetting criminals.Finally, here are some immigration laws I would like for our country to adopt:  1.  — There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.  2. — All ballots will be in this nation’s language.  3. — All government business will be conducted in our language.  4. — Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here.  5. — Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold-political office.  6. — Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers.  No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other-government assistance programs.  Any burden will be deported.  7. — Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.  8. — If foreigners come here and buy land . . . options will be restricted.  Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country.  9. — Foreigners may have no protests, no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies.  These will lead to deportation.  10. — If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged.  All assets will be taken from you.Too strict?  The above laws are the current immigration laws of MEXICO!
