The Conquest of Aztlan is real
In 1998, I attended the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at the Southwestern School of Law in Los Angeles. I listened as the Mexican consul general in Los Angeles, Jose Angel Pescador Osuna, said, "Even though I am saying this part serious and part joking, I think we are practicing la Reconquista in California."
I gave a reporter enough to convince the NY Times to run the story on its front page.
By the next year I had collected enough of a record to convince me that Pescador Osuna was not joking, so I produced a video called Conquest of Aztlan.
This had followed on the heals of two other videos with the overall title of Immigration: Threatening the Bonds of Our Union.
In 1998 --- after watching one of the videos - James Lubinskas wrote: "We Have Been Warned."
In the coming weeks and months we are going to witness major disturbances as President Trump attempts to enforce our immigration laws, with the Mexican government playing a major role in encouraging resistance.
The Conquest of Aztlan is real and it is threatening the bonds of our union.
