Thanks to R.L. Ranger for including his references with his letter of Mar. 4:
www.barnesreview.org. (The Barnes Review)
www.fairus.org. (The Fed. of Am. immigration Reform)
www.limitstogrowth.org. (Limits to Growth, Org)
Now I know the source of some of the material I read in letters to the editor, such as that on female circumcision, slavery, and the selling of women. Some were lifted verbatum from articles from the above anti-immigration sources.
I reviewed the article Mr. Ranger referenced to dispute my statement that the lands of Mexico were stolen. That same reference states: "(J. Tiffany) There can be little doubt that Pres. Polk engineered the 1846-1848 war with Mexico." (Other statements in this article paraphrase the same claim but I will not include them.) Yes, the US did pay a gratuitous sum of 15 million cash, plus another $3,250.000 to settle claims, when we took over half the land area of the Mexican Republic. To pay $18,250,000 for over a half million square miles of our neighbor's territory which we took by force is stealing to me.
