UNPLANNED CHANGE -HELP
Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2018
I loved this book, most likely because it mirrored what I saw happen in CA during the 1980's, 90's and the 21st century. Dr Hanson just true to say what he saw happen. I am a life time Democrat, served with Hispanics in the Marine Corps and my 25 years as a COP. Great people. Great workers in general, good humor, religious, and fun loving. The problem is not with Hispanic people. The problem is the mass migration with nothing set up to "Americanize" the new comers. I live 400 miles north of the Mexican border. By the year 1992 our county jails had 42% Mexican nationals in Custody. Now we currently have about 33% of the former native people of El Salador, 25% of the former people of Honduras and at least 15% of former Mexican nationals have moved to the USA. This mass migration was not planned for. The vast majority of the millions of people had little or no formal education. Just like our jails, our schools were over whelmed. Housing was also overwhelmed. Our county was over run with Mexican National and Salvadoran gangs. The vast majority of Mexican Nationals who moved here were from the Mexican Sate of Michoacan which is rated as a no travel zone for USA citizens because of wide spread violence-homicides, kidnapping, car jacking, and robbery. Our current basic cable has 12 Spanish language channels. In two decades we went though a revolution. Many places in the county English is rarely heard.
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.
