DUAL CITIZENSHIP AND LA RECONQUISTA
THE MISSING LINK
|"I think we are practicing
la reconquista in California " -- Pescador Osuna speaking
to a conference on the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at the Southwestern
School of Law.
|A report from Glenn Spencer
Recent stories about dual citizenship -- especially
Mexican dual citizenship -- are missing something very important
-- la reconquista. Much of the discussion seems to be using a
report on dual citizenship written by Stanley A. Renshon
and published by the Center for Immigration Studies.
York Times reported that Osuna told a meeting of the Southwestern
School of law "While I am saying this half serious and half
joking, I think we are practicing la reconquista in California."
(I provided reporter Verhovick with the tape recording of Osuna's
remarks.) So the man behind dual citizenship says Mexico is practicing
la reconquista in California and Stanley A. Renson pays no attention
