Different kinds of Hispanics are migrating to America. After the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the Hispanics coming to the US were overwhelmingly Mexican, especially northern Mexicans — the whitest part of the country.
However, The Wall Street Journal reported in December 2019:
[D]uring President Obama’s first term, the number of illegal immigrants from Mexico declined significantly, and in their place came families and children traveling alone, most from the Central American nations of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. By 2014, Mexican nationals for the first time in modern history made up a minority of border arrests.
This is a negative development. The majority of Mexicans from the states that border America are “harnizos” — roughly five eighths white, three eighths Amerindian. Southern Mexicans, Salvadorans, Guatemalans, and Hondurans are overwhelmingly mestizos or pure Amerindians. Luckily, these Hispanics do not border the US. Mexico is an obstacle in their way and an opportunity to stop them before they reach the Rio Grande.
President Trump is using it. In summer 2019, President Trump informed Mexico that he would impose tariffs on Mexican exports if they let Central American “caravans” reach our country. The threat worked. Below are photos of the Hondurans who tried to break through Mexico’s southern border last January. Most were stopped. Mexico swiftly deported hundreds who got through.

I’m an American nationalist, so this may sound surprising, but I wish the Mexican Armed Forces all success. If there was ever a time to give military aid to our southern neighbors, it’s now.
