Mass Mexican immigration to the U.S. will help the GOP, we`ve been told repeatedly, because Mexican immigrants will join the fight against gay marriage and abortion .

Meanwhile, back in Mexico, the homosexual activist agenda is charging forward , and without a whole lot of controversy.

Today, Antonio and Jorge became the first couple to be united under Mexico City`s new civil union law. For a photo of the happy couple, and a video where you can also see the ceremony and Antonio`s proud mama , click here.

Mexico City was the first Mexican government entity to pass a civil unions law, but not the first to actually enact them.

That`s because after Mexico City passed its civil unions law, but before it had taken effect, the conservative northern state of Coahuila raced to pass a similar law and enact it sooner ! So Coahuila was actually the first state to start uniting gay couples in civil unions.

In 2001, I wrote my first article for VDARE.COM, "Why the Majority of Mexican Immigrants are Not going to Vote for the GOP". In the section entitled "Despite What You`ve Heard, Mexican Immigrants are Not Attracted by Social Conservative Politics", I described the Mexican social scene and wrote that:

"Homosexuality is becoming more accepted, and a gay rights movement is gaining strength. "

Somebody who disagreed with that article circulated a letter on the Internet asserting that I didn`t know what I was talking about. The writer used the Mexican city of Saltillo as an example of a conservative, Catholic city.

Ironically, Saltillo is the capital of Coahuila, and the first city in Mexico in which gay civil unions were enacted!
