Jim Moore reporting for a Houston TV station:
Jim:  Juan, I see that you and thousands of other protesters
are marching in the streets to demonstrate for your cause.
Exactly what is your cause and what do you expect to accomplish
by this protest?

Juan: We want our rights. We will show you how powerful we are. We will bring Houston to its knees!
Jim: What rights?
Juan: Our right to live here...legally. Our right to get all the benefits you get.
Jim: When did you come to the United States ?
Juan:  Six years ago. I crossed over the border at night with seven other friends.
Jim: Why did you come?
Juan: For work. I can earn as much in a month as I could in
a year in Mexico . Besides, I get free health care, our Mexican
children can go to school free, if I lose my job I will get Welfare,
and someday I will have the Social Security, Nothing like that in
Mexico !

Jim: Did you feel badly about breaking our immigration laws
when you came?

Juan: No! Why should I feel bad? I have a right to be here. I have a right to amnesty. I paid lots of money for my Social Security and Green Cards.
Jim: How did you acquire those documents?
Juan: From a guy in Dallas . He charged me a lot of money too.
Jim: Did you know that those documents were forged?
Juan: It is of no matter. I have a right to be here and work.
Jim: What is the "right" you speak of?
Juan: The right of all Aliens. It is found in your Constitution.
Read it!

Jim: I have read it, but I do not remember it saying anything about rights for Aliens.
Juan: It is in that part where it says that all men have Alien rights, like the right to pursue happiness. I wasn't happy in Mexico  so I came here.
Jim: I think you are referring to the declaration of Independence
and that document speaks to unalienable rights ... Not Alien rights.
Juan: Whatever
Jim: Since you are demanding to become an American citizen, why then are you carrying a Mexican Flag?
Juan: Because I am Mexican.

Jim: But you said you want to be given amnesty ... To become
a US citizen.
Juan: No. This is not what we want. This is our country, a
part of Mexico that you Gringos stole from us. We want it
returned to its rightful owner.
Jim: Juan, you are standing in Texas . After wining the war with Mexico , Texas became a Republic, and later Texans voted to join the USA . It was not stolen from Mexico .
Juan: That is a Gringo lie. Texas was stolen. So was California , New Mexico and Arizona . It is just like all
the other stuff you Gringos steal, like oil and babies. You are a
country of thieves.


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A young patient sauntered into a medical clinic Friday morning and got prompt treatment a tranquilizer dart and a quick trip back to the wilds. But again, this patient was the four-legged kind: a young black bear that was probably hungry from a winter of hibernation.
"He did not have an appointment," said Todd Sandman, director of public relations for Presbyterian Health Care Services.
The 125-pound male bear, perhaps 2 to 3 years old, wandered into the Presbyterian Medical Group gastroenterology laboratory around 7:15 a.m., Sandman said.
The bear got in through an automatic door at the lab, a stand-alone building off one the main drags in Rio Rancho, north of Albuquerque.
"There were just a handful of people there, before the time when it was really open for appointments I think a nurse, perhaps a receptionist and a patient and spouse," Sandman said.
"I think the person in the waiting room was pretty surprised."
Everyone was safely evacuated, he said.
"Apparently, the bear was very calm and retreated into a side room and then further into a bathroom," said Dan Williams, a New Mexico Department of Game and Fish spokesman. An officer fired a tranquilizer dart, sedating the bear in a little more than a minute.



Jim: Babies? You think we steal babies?
Juan: Sure. Like from Korea and Vietnam and China . I see
them all over the place. You let all these foreigners in, but
try to keep us Mexicans out. How is this fair?
Jim: So, you really don't want to become an American
citizen then.
Juan: I just want my rights! Everyone has a right to live,
work, and speak their native language wherever and whenever they please. That's another thing we demand. All signs and official documents should be in Spanish. Teachers must teach in Spanish. Soon, more people here in Houston will speak Spanish than English. It is our right!
Jim: If I were to cross over the border into Mexico without proper documentation, what rights would I have there?
Juan: None. You would probably go to jail, but that's different.
Jim: How is it different? You said everyone has the right to live wherever they please.
Juan: You Gringos are a bunch of land grabbing thieves. Now you want Mexico too? Mexico has its rights. You Gringos have no rights in Mexico . Why would you want to go there anyway? There is no free medical service, schools, or welfare there for foreigners such as you. You cannot even own land in my country. Stay in the country of your birth.
Jim: I can see that there is no way that we can agree on this issue. Thank you for your comments.
Juan: Viva Mexico!
