fta: " Many struggle with the language, have trouble in Mexican schools and find it difficult to integrate into Mexican society."

simple, they should campaign to make English an official language of Mexico, sue to have school taught in English and sue whenever something in society disadvantages them due to their language.

He misses the U.S., Navarro said. He's had a hard time adjusting to the culture - for one thing, personal space isn't given a premium in Mexico, he said - and he gets a hostile reaction when people on the bus hear him speaking English.

So Mexicans don't like it when people move to their country and refuse to speak their language? Wow, what a bunch of racists.

jjorsett: Hispanics constitute a "low information culture", and it's the GOP that's racist.


I'm not making a racial observation, but a factual one about countries and their education levels. Mexico is, on the whole, not as well educated as we are in the U.S. Hence why the man in the article found himself to have such a nice advantage over the rest of his countrymen.

make me some tea: mikemoto: Somewhat off subject but I wonder why so many people, especially Republicans assume that Hispanics are wedded to the Democratic party. Yes, large majorities vote that way currently, but if look at countries like Mexico, they tend to elect center-right or outright conservative governments as opposed to center-left or hard left governments. The PRD in Mexico has NEVER won a national election and probably won't in the near future. The GOP needs to drop its immigrant bashing.

That makes sense, low information cultures tend to be more conservative.

The racist element present in the GOP needs to be eliminated before they can ever have any hope of capturing the latino demographic.

True, but sad. In my ideal fantasy world, one population of either culture starts to give a little. Maybe it's because they realize that teaching their children to be biased against another language just because immigrants from another country speak it isn't as important as the benefits of learning multiple languages during childhood. Hell, if you live anywhere in the southwest you open up a whole new branch of job options by learning it. Either way, someone gives and instead of people walling each other off for reasons outside either of their own personal controls, they try to understand one another.

Besides, that guy who your friend just complained about that dusty fieldworker because he took a long time to order using gestures and spanish? We have no idea how available learning the English language is to him. However, if you were a high school student you could very well have had that option, you just neglected to seize it for what it was worth.

Mrtraveler01: roadkillontheweb: That's why my friends retired down there. Much cheaper to live great climate (in the mountains) and the healthcare is so much better.

Yeah, but you also have to worry about drug gangs and other acts of violence.

It's like retiring to Opa Locka, North Miami Beach, or to a smaller extent Hialeah (some of the most crime ridden parts of Miami) just to escape the cold weather.


When I went to MEPS (military enlistment processing center) im Miami I was left at a train station in Hialeah for a few hours awaiting a train back to Palm Beach. It was an unstaffed station with only vending type machines to give tickets. I could see the local barrio just about a block away, and they could see me...I was just waiting for it. A couple times a security guard drove through...guess that was enough to keep em away. That is probably the most uncomfortable a place has ever made me.

They are not in the big cities or border cities that have these problems lots of retired gringos from Canada and the US are there living better in retirement than they would here. Just like here in the states, housing might be cheap in Detroit but you wouldn't want to live there. You need to be careful where you choose to live in Mexico

Sounds about right for Immigrants.

Very few immigrants go anywhere because they love the culture and want to be a part of a particular country. Most immigrants go for strictly economic reasons. As an immigrant myself, I can tell you that it was strictly about money and quality of life. I have no love or loyalty to my current country of residency and I'd *rather* be back where I was born. As soon as it makes sense for me, I'll go back home.


That is the difference between immigration 200 years ago and today. 200 years ago it was a one way trip to the new world. You had to assimilate with your new country. America was the great melting pot of cultures and peoples.

Now a days, immigrants come here, but refuse to assimilate. They come strictly for the money and leave when that ends.

Navarro, 33, has taken part in a historic migration. For the first time in decades, more people are moving from the U.S. to Mexico than are coming to the U.S. from Mexico, the Pew Hispanic Center reported in April. Some, like Navarro, are deported, but the vast majority came to Mexico voluntarily, according to the report.
