Hanson follows the fortunes of Hispanic friends he has known all his lifehow they have succeeded in America and how they regard the immigration quandary. But if Mexifornia is an emotionally generous look at the ambition and vigor of people who have made California strong, it is also an indictment of the policies that got California into its present mess. In the end, Hanson is hopeful that our traditions of assimilation, integration and intermarriage may yet remedy a predicament that the politicians and ideologues have allowed to get out of hand.

There is little need to learn English. All government services have tax payer translators. All our leaders seem to do is ignore the problems of a two language society and usually accuse anyone who talks about it as being racist. That is what Dr Hanson talks about in great detail-change as seen through his eyes. Drastic change needs careful planning we have had none here in CA.
A State of Becoming
VICTOR DAVIS HANSON
Review by Roy Murry, Author
Closed or open borders on the southern frontier of the USA is the central question of Mr. Hanson's thesis. He gives the reader the full spectrum of pros and cons to contemplate in his description of the state of California the way he sees it as a native farmer and professor of history.
The complexities of the Mexican illegal immigration that California seems to be the epicenter may spread across the country if the governments on each side of the divide do not pay attention to the reasons for that migration. The movements of that migration must be either stopped or opened is the question the USA Congress and the American people must decide - walls or no walls.
MEXIFORNIA is a piece of excellent background information as to what has happened since the 1970s to the present situation. Latins, illegal or not, are the backbone of the farming industry in that state.
According to the author, his and thousands of Californians’ lives have changed with the constant flow of young migrants replacing older ones, working on the farms and hard labor. Many of them have not acquired the abilities to assimilate to become citizens or speak the English language.
This situation has changed the economic landscape, much for the worst, and could spread throughout the USA.
If the USA immigration at our Southern border is of interest to you, MEXIFORNIA is an intelligent read to start your quest of understanding illegal immigration.
Sent a copy to my brother. Wife now reading my copy. Recommend the book.
