I always though ‘Hispanic’ came from Spain and the ‘Latino’ from the Roman – Latin – that Spanish was derived from.
Surprise, surprise, surprise, I been wrong all along. They must really be the original immigrants; the Clovis and Folsom cultures.
The deal is that everyone’s ancestors here in the whole Americas; North, Central and South, came here from somewhere else. This bunch just doesn’t like what everyone else got before them.
Last week’s most overlooked news was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealing herself as a champion of the “Reconquista” war against Europeans. The Mexican Reconquista movement is an openly admitted effort by Hispanic activists to take “back” California (Southern especially), New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas through immigration and activism. This is one of several driving forces behind allowing illegal immigration.
Ocasio-Cortez (D-Venezuela) dominated news on February 7 appearing at a rally to abolish or defund the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. The same day, Ocasio-Cortez joined other liberal Members of Congress in unveiling her “Green New Deal” (green evidently referring to envy, not the environment).
Almost lost amidst this furor were Ocasio-Cortez’s comments that immigration laws should not apply to indigenous people: As reported in the UK’s Daily Mail — with full video shown:
But she vowed Thursday to defund ICE completely and claimed Latinos should be exempt from criminal proceedings and immigration laws because they are descended from Mesoamerican cultures that preceded the United States.
‘We are standing on native land,’ she claimed, speaking just outside the U.S. Capitol. ‘And Latino people are descendants of native people. And we cannot be told, and criminalized, simply because for our identity or our status. Period.” [emphasis added]
