No less strange than a lacinating digress, gcle, but a fascinating display of migrant thread-hopping nevertheless. Not that the construction of this thread fails to support these sopholoric interludes. In contemporary society, immigration is a fact of life and accomplished quite simply under legal venues. Undocumented aliens are another matter entirely and, often, a direct product of criminal activity thus constituting a serious threat to social and political stability. Nevertheless, there are jokers who go out of their way to either incite racial hatred or rationalize the problem with all type of Humpty Dumpty logic. The charlatans we have here bloviate about Amerinds, reservations, "suppressors" and heaven knows what other fancies for no other reason than to hear themselves exercise their digestive tracts. The literature on the topic is voluminous, not only with respect to the situation in the United States but internationally as well. For example, here is an overview with respect to the US in 2007:
 
 
The interesting point here is that the US can absorb these extra-legals to a far greater capacity than any other modern state and actively seeks solutions to the social dilemma. Now that there are others who seek to play politics is another matter entirely, and herein the very thread we have received excellent examples of such inanities.

Well, dragonzeistga, were you to lessen the whole moral high ground spiel, and refrian from such importune semantic babble fire (picture the soldiers on D-Day getting shot at with tangents and anecdotal interjections), then maybe a vis a vis discussion without interpolation would lead to a better standard of discussion. At the moment such intellectual jousting is neither condusive to progress or to a fair reflection of intellect.
 
Did I just say anything at all? I'm confused.

Duh? Do you people actually read what you write before posting such cockamamie drivel...or do you believe these meanderings carry meaning? Pray tell, what does this say: "Now maybe of course a tribe  who has one or two territories in the same  state including border and non-border could may move inter-border freely but this is not likely..."?

Spare yourselves further embarrassment and simply go quietly...

Well, living in that environment maybe made you homeblind and unable to view the matter in a broader perspctive.

I'll keep it a little cordial here since Dr.DOOM has already made a mess of  this post and is doing nothing but posting irrelevant and non-complacent points in threads as Carcharodon has already pointed out.

I would want to know what you mean be saying "take the cake" or a wanna be for that matter,you don't know me or my family's  history. You can't withstand a full intellectual argument thats the reason for your feeble rebutalls when all the while  quivering for knowing your statements are undoubtedly flawed . Refrain from referring to me or I shall expose your incredulous constructs once more as I previously did not too long ago.

Prior to the Independence of Texas, Native American Indians were forced to move westward.They already had been other familiar settled Native Indian Tribes who were scrambling and fighting to maintain their reservations lands, crops, and livestock. They mostly fought with Tejanos and other refuged Native American tribes coming into the area.



The Mexican government encouraged American Farmers and settlers in the lands in and around the Texas territories,the Mexican government also encouraged the newly arrived settlers to purchase farm implements,and even gave them land grants. Empresarios Tejanos sold these lands for 12 cents an acre to American settlers, but they were all to be Mexican Governed territories.
After Sam Houston and the Independence of Texas many Native Indians were eventually ignored of their rights  and not even taken into consideration. The Tejanos of of the previous Northern Mexico territories remained in Texas  and assimilated into the land  ,but these were contrary to the Indian Reservations set there.

If you are talking about Indian reservations  allowing them to move freely through borders, you have one or two factors comming into play. One factor, reservations may be situated on the Mexican and US border others are not situated in the proximity of the border .There  may be located in a remote area within the middle of the state, including Texas,Arizona,NewMexico,Utah,and Nevada. But not this does not include all indian reservations. Now maybe of course a tribe  who has one or two territories in the same  state including border and non-border could may move inter-border freely but this is not likely.
 
Native American Indians and Tejanos are two different things. And it is true that some reservations may allow them to traverse between the borders doesn't mean the same for the Indians of Mexico. I'm not to sure if they are even Indian reservations(territories) in Mexico. SO not all tribes are granted the same liberty.

Now of course the United States grants the Native Indian Tribes some amnesty in some matters. Thats the reason you have new well spunned Casinos.  I do know of one Indian territory on the New York -Canada border called the Akwasasne and St Regis Mohawk reserve which has alot of interborder moving of the Mohawk tribe memebrs but not all.They have businesses there that give them very great advantage.

So to put it simply not all native americans are allowed to travel freely through borders,so I don't know why that claim was made.

Calm it down guys, it may be the minefield but normal rules still apply. attack the argument, not the person, and don't bring arguments from other threads into this one - or vice versa.

Do not be angry just because you are wrong, everybody can be wrong.

And to call people names like wannabe Aethiop (whoever that refers to) and similar slurs, has not so much to do with history but just shows a lack of ordinary politeness.

Sweden has also people who come into this country illegally. But they, when discovered, has the right to get their matter tried in court, in order to decide if they can stay or not.
 
If you think all of the natives in the Amazon are tupians or all of the natives in Mexico are Chichimecas than you for sure has no grasp of the diveristy of native peoples and languages.

Absolutely agree.
The problem with the immigration from Mexico to the U.S. has not much to do with Indians, no matter it is true that Indigenous people all over the history moved back and forth from today's territories of the United States and Mexico. By large, most immigrants aren't Indigenous people at all.
 
The problem is not with Mexicans either. A Mexican that flight to the U.S. to complete its studies or doing business won't have problems at all, mostly. Even more, a million of Americans live in Mexico Confused...
 
The problem here is with the poors of Mexico, Mexico is a country that, like Brazil and Colombia and in less degree other Latin Americans nations, have a great social divide between the poor masses and the rich. Only recently in the region a middle class is surging, but still there is a great debt with a poor uneducated segment of the population that is looking for better opportunities.
Criminality is also a factor, but that shouldn't be the major concern. After all, those immigrants comming to the U.S. from other regions, like Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa or Asia comes from countries with even more criminality than Mexico, and the largest majority of poor Mexicans are hard working and decent people.
 
Different is the concern with the mafias across borders. That's a major concern, not only of the United States, but of all the countries of the Western Hemisphere. The traffic of drugs in one direction, money and guns in the other, are producing a lot of problems and challenge the stability of the region, and has to be stopped. Absolutelly. Just remember how the FARC guerrillas attacked from Ecuador, to realize this is a global problem of the New World.

I do not talk about the urban elements. I just talk about those descendants of native that live in what is now Mexico but once time also lived in the places that today is US. Maybe some of them want to move to places in the states their ancestors one time lived in. All descendants do not live at the border right now, some live also further south in Mexico. There were, and is, not only one group of natives that once lived in what is now California, Arizona, New Mexico or Texas.

 

But maybe the US citizens is just so paranoid that they think all people coming from Mexico are thieves and crooks directly from the slum.

 

And shall one see things from an Native American perspective than all non indian Americans are illegal immigrants (even if many of them, as the black slaves, did not come voluntarily).

 

- -  -

 

And for the matter of refugees, still Sweden takes more refugees, counted in percent, than the big and mighty US.

It is obvious that you do not even grasp the ethnic composition of US Border Patrol agents in this part of the world nor have any idea of the various Amerind nations common to both the US and Mexico. In fact, I would bet that you are ignorant of the long literature on this subject including the classic A Campaign in the Sierra Madre, 1885-1886, a narrative by Lieutenant Marion P. Maus, First Infantry, U.S. Army,with illustrations by Frederic Remington.
 
What is worse, despite your tedious exposition on "indigenous tribes" elsewhere, is the fact that we are not speaking of any type of Amerind when discussing this social problem.

Does all the above mentioned mean that you for sure know that noone who crosses the border in a so called illegal way could be a descendant from those native Americans who in past times where chased by army troops from both Mexico and the US back and forth over the border? Do you know absolutely for sure that noone of todays immigrants ever had ancestors who where native Americans that once could have lived in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona or California?

You are just laying smoke screens to obsure this matter.
 
If some of the descendants of these natives today live on the Mexican side of the border they should have all right to move into the US, to places that were a part of their old homeland.

But it is of course better they are given legal status then being forced to do it illegally.
 
Only someone totally ignorant of Texas history would take the time to post such drivel. Now as for this cross-border flight, Carch, perhaps you should take time to read a certain clause in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo...if your sensibilities can get past its opening affirmation: In the name of  Almighty God...
 
If you do then read on:
 
Article XI:
Considering that a great part of the territories, which, by the present treaty, are to be comprehended for the future within the limits of the United States, is now occupied by savage tribes, who will hereafter be under the exclusive control of the Government of the United States, and whose incursions within the territory of Mexico would be prejudicial in the extreme, it is solemnly agreed that all such incursions shall be forcibly restrained by the Government of the United States whensoever this may be necessary; and that when they cannot be prevented, they shall be punished by the said Government, and satisfaction for the same shall be exacted all in the same way, and with equal diligence and energy, as if the same incursions were meditated or committed within its own territory, against its own citizens.

It shall not be lawful, under any pretext whatever, for any inhabitant of the United States to purchase or acquire any Mexican, or any foreigner residing in Mexico, who may have been captured by Indians inhabiting the territory of either of the two republics; nor to purchase or acquire horses, mules, cattle, or property of any kind, stolen within Mexican territory by such Indians.

And in the event of any person or persons, captured within Mexican territory by Indians, being carried into the territory of the United States, the Government of the latter engages and binds itself, in the most solemn manner, so soon as it shall know of such captives being within its territory, and shall be able so to do, through the faithful exercise of its influence and power, to rescue them and return them to their country, or deliver them to the agent or representative of the Mexican Government. The Mexican authorities will, as far as practicable, give to the Government of the United States notice of such captures; and its agents shall pay the expenses incurred in the maintenance and transmission of the rescued captives; who, in the mean time, shall be treated with the utmost hospitality by the American authorities at the place where they may be. But if the Government of the United States, before receiving such notice from Mexico, should obtain intelligence, through any other channel, of the existence of Mexican captives within its territory, it will proceed forthwith to effect their release and delivery to the Mexican agent, as above stipulated.

For the purpose of giving to these stipulations the fullest possible efficacy, thereby affording the security and redress demanded by their true spirit and intent, the Government of the United States will now and hereafter pass, without unnecessary delay, and always vigilantly enforce, such laws as the nature of the subject may require. And, finally, the sacredness of this obligation shall never be lost sight of by the said Government, when providing for the removal of the Indians from any portion of the said territories, or for its being settled by citizens of the United States; but, on the contrary, special care shall then be taken not to place its Indian occupants under the necessity of seeking new homes, by committing those invasions which the United States have solemnly obliged themselves to restrain.

After all every single European and European descendent is in the Americas illegally.

All things considered every person living in the Americas is here through some sort of immigration process. The natives didn't appear out of thin air either.
