Apparently the big concern among anti-immigration activists is that eventually Mexico will try to take back the American southwest. You could come up with reasons why the idea would not work, but my first reaction was that we could probably get a sweet deal for Texas.
OK let’s admit that the whole idea is battier than a bowl of fruit loops. As long as we’re talking about reconquista, though, I have a Mexican rock compilation of that name which rocks the bolts off of my car. Great music (influences range from the Bosstones to delta blues to the Clash) and it has the special coolness when you have an album that nobody else can get.
Consider this my deeply-thought-out contribution to the immigration debate.
