So, this Hispanic Trump surrogate comes on TV and warns America that if we don’t stop Mexican immigration we’ll have a taco truck on every corner. My first reaction was that I’m just a few hundred yards from the corner of SR 138 and WMRd and I can’t wait for our neighborhood taco truck.
This kind of nativist nonsense has occurred every time a large immigrant group has arrived at our shores. There’s always dire warnings about how America is going to be destroyed or weakened by their arrival and we good Americans need to “cut them off at the pass.”
While none of those warnings would have been welcomed it is true that none of them were ever realized. Each group, some quicker than others, found their place in America and added to the richness of our gene pool.
This current warning, however, is different. Never have we been threatened with something that would be welcomed. Again, Janet and I can’t wait for our taco truck. And maybe we could get some Syrian refugees running a falafel wagon out this way. We’re getting tired of all these fresh Amish grown organic vegetables and homemade noodles.
