Occupied New Orleans Forecast

Over at la Times in Los Angeles, a Mexophile columnist is already cheering the cultural loss of New Orleans to Hispanic illegals arriving to "help." (Cajuns and other Louisianans are capable of making even French sound good in their wonderful musical tradition, but adding large numbers of Mexicans to the unique culture would be putting arsenic in the gumbo.)

NO MATTER WHAT ALL the politicians and activists want, African Americans and impoverished white Cajuns will not be first in line to rebuild the Katrina-ravaged Gulf Coast and New Orleans. Latino immigrants, many of them undocumented, will. And when they're done, they're going to stay, making New Orleans look like Los Angeles. It's the federal government that will have made the transformation possible, further exposing the hollowness of the immigration debate. ["La Nueva Orleans" LA Times, 9/25,05]

President Bush has already greased the skids for Mexicans by suspending Davis-Bacon (which requires government contractors to pay prevailing wage) and halting sanctions for employers who hire "undocumented" workers. Even in the most serious national situations, Bush always gives advantage to Mexicans over Americans, and Katrina is no exception.

El Presidente Fox is licking his big wolfish chops at the New Orleans suffering, and could hardly wait for Katrina's winds to die down before he was pushing Mexican workers, whom he sees as obedient remittance senders (with the amount likely topping $20 billion this year).

Thanks to House member Charlie Norwood who told Vicente Fox what he could do with his workers from the scab nation, remarking "We should not allow our national tragedy to become Mexico's gain."

Amen, brother!
