By expat2003, published on Apr 9, 2008

...(Spanish Immersion School FAQ, Schools Help You Combine Study and Travel, By Gerald Erichsen, About.com)With an idea similar to this quote as the definition of "Spanish Immersion," my wife and I, who also wanted to learn Spanish, sold all our earthly belongings and moved to Guanajuato, Mexico in the year 2003 to "live in the language." After four months of Spanish classes (five days a week and three hours per day) and four years of living here, we could not speak or understand Spanish any better than we could before we came to Mexico. Though we could tell you the differences between ... (more)

How To Become Mexicanized

By expat2003, published on Apr 2, 2008

...States to become "Americanized?" Just what do we mean as a people when we say that anyone, Latinos or whomever, who comes to live among us should adopt and adapt our language and culture? What are we saying exactly and why don't we apply the same standards to ourselves when we go to live in Mexico, proclaiming proudly that we are American Expatriates and that we have Mastered the Culture?

One Supreme Court Justice said that Americanization should look like this:

Immigrants should wear "our" clothes, take on "our" manners and customs as their own, and speak "our" language as ... (more)

L.A. Sanctuary Status Makes Mayor Libel For Teen's Murder

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 30, 2008

...and cold-bloodedly murdered Shaw. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials had flagged Espinosa for deportation last week, but since L.A. is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, no one bothered to follow up on him and make sure that when he walked out of jail, he went straight back to Mexico. Of course ICE officials won’t come right out and say that it was L.A.’s sanctuary policy that let Espinosa get away, but it doesn’t take rocket science to figure that one out.

The day Espinosa got out of jail, he returned to his roots, the 18th Street Gang where, no doubt, he was... (more)

I Want To Move To Mexico. Where's My Immigrant Advocate?

By Steven Lane, published on Feb 25, 2008

I have traveled a lot in beautiful Mexico. I love that country, the culture, the food and most of all, the people. I like it so much, it is my intention to move there, for at least awhile, in about a year and spend some real time there, as I explore this Latin world in depth. I think about it every day, my heart is totally pumped at the thought of adventure and education in a place I only know from what I have gleaned with a week here or three weeks there.

The problem is that immigrating to Mexico is not a simple thing. The Mexican government has set enough obstacles to ensure that only... (more)

A Tale of Two Cities - Down Mexico Way

By Steven Lane, published on Feb 25, 2007

MEXICO CITY It took a little over two hours to get from the airport to my hotel in the Reforma area of Mexico City. I was a fortunate one, as I had a personal driver that had been hired by a friend and he was able to navigate the scribble-scrabble layout of the streets of this enormous city. I simply sat back and mumbled "go, speed racer, go" to myself, as Antonio weaved his way up one Calle and down the next. As a passenger, death seemed the inevitable conclusion to this sleigh ride of potholes and unread or unrecognized traffic signs. Combined with frenzied, obviously, acid tripping, drivers... (more)
