Mexican School to Offer American Citizenship Course for Locals

Mayra Moreno, KENS 5 (San Antonio), February 4, 2014

Its never been done before in south Texas. A well-known Mexican university is offering its first course to become an American citizen.

The National Autonomous University of Mexico is hoping to begin as soon as next week. The university’s satellite branch is located at 600 Hemisfair Plaza Way.


“We’re really excited to be offering more resources for the community,” said Jake Pacheco, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, UNAM.

UNAM, as its known, is a university based out of Mexico City. Pacheco said the university is taking its first step to prepare locals to become American citizens.

“It’s important to educate the community to give them that strength that power,” said Pacheco.


It will all be taught by trained professionals from the university. UNAM hopes to ease students into the process and steer them away from a situation where they may be taken advantage of.


The instructors are bilingual. Halfway through the course, students will sit down with an inspector from the U.S.C.I.S for a mock interview.


The course will be offered every Tuesday from February 11th to April the 15th. Class is from 6am to 9pm. Its a 30 hour course costing $110.

    Since I live in San Antonio, I can say with conviction that the city is not only America’s fattest city, but also its most ignorant. The citizenship course is not going to make much of a splash, but it’s good publicity for UNAM and for the amnesty crowd. Actually, there are many Mexicans, citizens of the USA, with roots in SA for decades who could benefit from learning what it means to be a good citizen of the USA.

      Is Mayra Moreno a legal?

      • bigone4u

        Never heard of her, so just looked her up. I don’t have a TV, having given up that vile habit years ago, but I see she’s a TV news reporter. The local stations here have always featured Mexican-American reporters, but I don’t keep up with them.

      “be a good citizen of the USA”. I doubt if that’s the point of the course. It’s probably more like “how to get free stuff”.

      • bigone4u

        I would agree with you except that believe me they are already getting tons of free stuff. Julian Castro, the Marxist mayor, made the city a “sanctuary city” and offers lots of goodies to go with it. I think the course is a PR stunt designed to assure whites that the Mexicans will be patriots if we legalize them. I’m not buying it.

          Isn’t Julian the son of the founder of La Raza?

            From Breitbart:

            Their mother, Rosie helped found a radical, anti-white, socialist Chicano party called La Raza Unida (literally “The Race United”) that sought to create a separate country—Aztlan—in the Southwest.

            BTW, I see your comments on a wide variety of news stories. Keep writing.

            I follow yours also, especially on Takimag. Enjoy your comments.

          I was just thinking, “Hey, that’s nice. At least they’re trying, I guess.” But you’re probably right…

      I live in Houston. The N&Ms here are way more fat and complete sheeples, as in they don’t know ANYTHING other than what they need to survive. They dress like someone in a freakshow and drive like they’re are taking the SAT at the same time. It’s so frustrating. Especially after attending college in a small Texas town. When I was in school everywhere I looked, hot woman and friendly gentlemen. Here in Houston everywhere I look there is some sort of futuristic half human half jabba the hut mexican’t with a Duncan Donut iced coffee the size of a football.

      Aight y’all keep it real

    That’s all citizenship is? A book, a disc and whatever money they have to spend?

    • Spartacus

      It is according to the jews… In all countries except Israel, of course .

    Lie about being persecuted or break the laws of the land and have an anchor baby. What more do they need to know?

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    American citizenship is worthless because anyone can become an American, even Mexicans.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Everyone in the world is an American, they’re just not here yet.

      • Berkeley Guy

        Lol. I am Israeli/Japanese/Chinese and none of you knew it until I declared it just now. Wonderful, isn’t it?

  • borogirl54

    Mexicans have the lowest naturalization rate of any ethnic group. Lack of English fluency and the money to apply for citizenship is given as reasons for not becoming a citizen.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      I think it’s also because Mexicans just don’t care that much about becoming American citizens. As long as they have a work permit and don’t have to fear deportation, they’re happy.

      • So CAL Snowman

        You’re 100% right my friend. Mexicans do not care one whit about this country as they had no hand in its founding and rise to power. They see it as a giant pinata waiting to be smashed and looted. The best way to look at mexicans is to understand that they have their hearts in Mexico and their stomachs in the US.

        • antiquesunlight

          Yeah, I confronted a Mexican about working here illegally and he said in broken English, “I don’t care for you. Lotta money for Mexico.” They send any extra cash to relatives in Mexico while paying few or no taxes. They’re total vampires.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Sure. And they get on the Obama gravy train of gibsmedat anyway, don’t have to pay a lick of taxes beyond sales tax, so…

      Why spoil a good thing, eh? Livin’ the dream. Heck, they even got it better than Detoilet of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico.

  • IstvanIN

    We are truly a conquered people, in an occpied country, who have no say in our destiny.

    • Katherine McChesney

      England has also been conquered. London is a wasteland.

  • Kathie McQueen

    Then they need to put into law that they can not apply for any form of assistance.

  • antiquesunlight

    I’m aware that our government bears much of the blame, but that does not excuse the Mexicans. People love to say that Mexicans are innocent, they’re just doing what’s best for them, but that’s what all criminals do: what’s best for them, no matter how bad it might be for everyone else. Criminality isn’t excusable. Period.
