One Continent -- One Culture...Latin American insurgency now in the open

One Continent -- One Culture...Latin American insurgency now in the open...
The Chicano movement was consolidated into a hemispheric movement at the July, 1990 conference in Quito, Ecuador....Mexico, 13 other nations say Utah illegal immigration law could strain diplomatic relations...More than a dozen Latin and South American countries have joined Mexico in expressing potential international fallout over Utah's illegal immigration enforcement law (HB497)...In a court brief filed Tuesday, the Mexican government lists several reasons for its opposition to HB497, including impeding diplomatic relations, hindering trade and tourism and possible harassment of Mexican citizens. Ron Mortensen, founder of the Utah Coalition on Illegal Immigration, called the notion that the law would disrupt U.S.-Mexico relations a "bunch of baloney." "If we intervened in their internal affairs, they would have been screaming Yankee imperialism at the top of their lungs," he said. "What they're saying basically is we will maintain our borders but the U.S. should allow open borders for our people."..Related: "California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn't like it should leave."
