Why Do Mexis Tell Gabachos to Go Back to Europe?

[¡Ask a Mexican!] And would open borders solve all of our immigration problems?

DEAR MEXICAN: During George W. Bush's administration, there was a lot of talk for and against comprehensive immigration reform (amnesty to some). One remark that I recall was stated by a Mexican that went something like, "Go back to Europe!" Aren't Mexicans of European descent also—hello—colonized by Spain? I thought to myself, "Why don't you go back to Europe? Unless you are puro indio, your roots are from Europe also." Immigration reform aside, what are your thoughts on going back to Europe?

Murrieta Maven

DEAR GABACHA: Eh, we say that just to show how stupid gabachos yelling, "Go back to Mexico!" sounds. The only Mexicans who truly believe gabachos should head back to Europe are indigenazi types who claim they're the pure-blooded 15th linear descendant of Cuauhtémoc . . . while sporting facial hair straight from Extremadura.

DEAR MEXICAN: Do Indians mangle Spanish as bad as they do English when you call a tech-support line? What I like about Mexicans is they are honest with you if they don't understand what you just said. They ask you to say it again. And if you don't understand a Mexican who is nobly attempting to learn that universal second language that is English, they try to say it again, this time more correctly. And Mexicans are grateful when you have helped them to understand English a little bit better so they can communicate with you, without demanding you learn Spanish in return. Even in Mexico, Mexicans don't mind if you don't understand Spanish; they always take care that everybody can communicate with one another even if it means they speak English in Mexico to a tourist whose Spanish vocabulary is limited to the Taco Bell menu. This is unlike Indian tech support workers, who seem to want to punish you for not understanding them as they attempt to read English sentences from a piece of paper—they have no interest in trying to understand. If they don't get it right on the first try, then I have found that you should immediately hang up and call back, hoping this time for somebody who can understand English. I have paid cancellation fees and returned electronics items because of tech support that seems only interested in a sort of passive-aggressive jihad.

So back to my question: How does a Mexican deal with Indian tech support? Do you have some wisdom on how to navigate non-native speakers without having a stroke, Oh He Who Always Knows to Press Eight for Spanish?

DEAR GABACHO: We press "2."

DEAR MEXICAN: What do you think about just opening the U.S.-Mexico border (as well as all the borders in the world)? I think a lot of people who come to the U.S. illegally would much rather work in the U.S. for a few months, and then go back to their home in Mexico and live off of the earnings for a while. You are a smart guy. I'm just curious what you think!

Bordering on a Bonus

DEAR GABACHO: The Mexican has always been for open borders, if only because that has been the American mantra since the days of Daniel Boone. I'd say more, but my column's word count gets slashed every five years or so due to the death of print—yay, Internet! In other news . . . [cut cut cut]

Our governemt isn't using our tax dollars to properly defend our borders. Our nation is being invaded by immoral illegal aliens & many are gang members. Most of those illegal "children" flooding our southern borders are recently recruited gang members. The gangs help younger children and women cross thousands of miles from central america to our borders to camouflage what they are really doing. They're sending fresh recruits to our country. Wake-up America!

Gangs recruit children as young as 8 years old.

I used to work at a call center, and I can say that Mexis and other Spanish speakers don't have to deal with Indian and Indonesian call centers. --Instead they have to deal with Salvis and Hondurans, as that's where a lot of Spanish speaking call centers are located.

Funny, while they resent the English language as European they are promoting Spanish which is a European language!

go back to europe??


but here's the deal on that


if they did



they would go to societies that care about education and life and have been at the forefront for most of modern advances 



where if the non -europeans go back 


it would be the same third world desolation and filth they want to turn America in to

Mexican people are indigenous to this continent. Some Mexicans are mixed but they were rapped by the european. As an indigenous mixed person I'm in touch with mother nature and see all creatures of this world. White people can stay here except  for the racist ones those have to go back to europe.

Lol they don't. Or at least that's the vibe they give off. I remember one time I asked in a European forum what they think of the Euro-Americans and I got tons of ppl answering saying negative things about them lol. The way some Europeans expressed themselves of the white Americans was surprising to me lol. They seem to get offended by a lot of things America has done and is doing.

#1 - good question as most whiteys in America these days didn't come from Europe. Distant ancestors might have.


#2 - best answer ever!


#3 - good gawd NO! Because "I told you so" just isn't as fun when the entire country looks & smells like Revolucion Blvd in TJ. Or Main & 1st in Santana for that matter.

@frankie_mann Those gangs absorbed the 50's US culture and then they were repatriated back to their countries, where they couldn't speak the language used there and where they had no links with anyone. The gangs culture in Latin America is the  result of the US policy of putting the shit under a rug and turn a blind eye  when it's convenient for them and let others deal with the problem you've caused.

@gregbpc 
I thought the comment was in reference to Mexico not allowing illegal immigrants from the north (USA) which is true and also contributes the the hypocrisy of that corrupted crap hole of a "country" down there. And no, it doesn't mean you're racist if you view Mexico as a corrupted crap hole...you just have to have your eyes open.

@memovolta @gregbpc @grvz5247 That is not the LEGAL age.  The oldest age of consent in Mexico is 14...in about 85% of Mexican states, the age is 12.

@gregbpc @memovolta @grvz5247 but the birth rate in Mexico has dropped a lot. I think fewer teen moms than in the past. Its about 2.3 per 1,000 in Mexico and Mexicans in Santa Ana and Anaheim in the high rent district have about 2.8 and sometimes have 5 kids. In Baja I read Mexicans have 1.8 just like Brazil. Its true the Call Centers are in Central America for Spanish but they are lots of them in Baja California.

@gregbpc @memovolta Oh, I thought we were talking about Mexico and its borders to north and south. I mean, that's what you mentioned in your initial post. You see, Mexico and Guatemala are two different countries. And you are the "smart" person voting for the best candidates? 

gregbpc
gregbpc topcommenter

@memovolta @gregbpc  Sheesh you're dense.  I AM talking about Mexico.  They are granting people immigrating from Guatamala and Belize 72 hour visas to remain in mexico for 72 hours.  This gives them time to get to the northern border and into the usa.  Mexico is not giving them legal status.  I should have said the recent central american illegals got here because MEXICO made an agreement with Guatamala and Belize allowing the Guatamalans and Belizians 72 hour visas to make their way to the US.  Got it?  And you probably think they only want to come here to work..riiight.

@memovolta @gregbpc Yeh, i realize i didn't make it clear..still doesn't change the basis of my comment, if you can read through it, the main point is clear.  Mexico is allowing illegals to pass through their country by giving visas...not exactly an open borders policy.
