In the movie "Machete," Jessica Alba exhibits her Latino solidarity, saying "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us!""
According to Wikipedia, Jessica Alba is the daughter of a Danish and French-Canadian woman and a Mexican father. Her husband is Cash Warren, who is the son of Michael Warren (Officer Bobby Hill on "Hill Street Blues.") Alba's character in the movie echoes the views of most illegal aliens and their apologists: America does not have "borders" (unlike Mexico which DOES) and it is "racist" to think America should.
But as Whites decline, to inevitable minority status, and Amexica rises, the same can be said for Whites. "We didn't cross the border, the border crossed us." Which has an entirely different meaning. Whites have by executive (inaction), and elite dictates, been shoved into Mexico, in the space of twenty years.
Amexica has its attractions. For illegal aliens, their children, and Latinos (nearly all of whom are Mexican descent), Amexica means social and cultural domination. Little American English spoken, mostly Spanglish, with Mexican culture dominating. By moving here en-masse, illegal aliens (and the differential birth rate among their descendants) have created Mexico inside America, replacing it. But it leaves those who never wanted to live in Mexico stuck. And angry. With no real recourse.
The largely White America could endure half a million war dead in WWII. Go to the moon, in less than a decade, after Kennedy's speech. Because the mostly White America generated enormous wealth, used very little welfare, and had tremendous unity. Even with the stresses of the Vietnam War, America could still mount a major space exploration program and do what no other nation has done since: walk on the moon.
As America has turned into Amexica, it has gotten Mexico's space program, and will get slowly, but surely, Mexico's military. Amexica generates Mexico's wealth, and Mexico's middle class. It has Mexico's racial tensions, and elite-populace wealth divisions. But the major impact of Amexica is the sudden immersion of the ordinary White populace into Mexico.
Unlike the illegal aliens who crossed the border illegally, in defiance of US immigration law (even if the US government refuses to enforce it seriously), US Whites did not move anywhere. They did not leave their country. But effectively, the border crossed them. They now no longer live in America. Merely Amexica. Where the language spoken is not the English they grew up with, but Spanglish. Where they are a minority, discriminated against, outsiders. Expected to generate all the wealth while sitting in the back of the bus.
Jessica Alba, Robert Rodriguez, and Michelle Rodriguez, became wealthy superstars, courtesy of the White audiences that embraced them. Robert Rodriguez made "Spy Kids" which while not a likely AFI "Greatest Movie" award winner, paid for his mansion and allowed him to date Rose McGowan. Michelle Rodriguez is likely best known for her roles in "Avatar" and "Lost." Alba regularly graces the pages of Maxim Magazine, and was made wealthy by White audiences. In short, these folks are the most assimilated, and embraced, by White America, that Mexican ancestry Americans can be, and Amexica still outweighs their affections for the people who they share ancestry with (in Alba's case) and made them wealthy and famous.
But the people who can really, truthfully say "We Didn't Cross the Border, the Border Crossed Us" are ordinary White Americans. Who in one generation effectively now live in a variant of Mexico.
