Mexico os 90%-95% Catholic. Most are Catholic in a nominal sense, however. Many of them don’t know much about the Faith. The Church in Mexico is poor.
Mexicans are poor because of the institutional corruption of the Mexican Government. It has long been their policy to force their poor people upon the United States and prop up their economy with remittances sent back from the US.
The Mexican ruling elite has long been anti-Catholic. Oh, many of them are “Catholics” but look at their actions, now and in their history.
The United States government has the right and the oblicgation to control and safeguard our borders. There should be a limit on immigration from Mexico. Many of these people do not want to assimilate into American life. There are radical Latino groups like La Raza and MeCHa that want to reclaim the American Southwest and rename it Aztlan. If left unchecked, we will have our own “Palestinian” problem in the future.
Mexico’s schools teach about the “terrible” Americans who “seized” Texas, the Southwest, and California. What they don’t teach is that the Mexican government has doen a terrible job in governing the remaining Mexican nation.
Mexico’s schools do not whine and complain for the loss of the present day Central American republics, which were one part of the Mexican nation. The Mexican government deports illegal immigrants into Mexico that come from El Salvador, Honduras, etc.
The terrible, deep-set poverty of all of Latin America is something that most Americans know little and care about even less. These nations are our neighbors and their problems become our problems as well. The Colombian Marxist FARC rebels conduct their assaults largely with money earned from cocaine sales to the US.
This wekeend, there will be the annual second collection for the Church’s appeal for Latin America and Eastern Europe.
