In Celebration of Cinco de Mayo...

...I propose Mexico annex the US. We're already halfway there anyway.

And let's toast the Supreme Court's ruling on identity theft as it pertains immigrants who use false social security numbers:

Stephen H. Legomsky, a professor of immigration law at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, said Monday’s decision would have a major impact on the strategy of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, making it more difficult for the agency to press criminal charges against immigrants with no other offenses but working illegally.

“In the ordinary immigration case, this will no longer be a weapon,” Professor Legomsky said.

The Obama administration has said that it will shift the focus of immigration enforcement to employers who intentionally hire unauthorized immigrants in order to pay lower wages or otherwise lower costs. But last week the administration said agents would continue to detain illegal immigrants found in raids.
Obama, you can't have your tamale and eat it too.
And I don't say happy Cinco de Mayo because I object to this festival. Nobody in Mexico gives too much of a fuck about it. Here it's just an excuse for inexcusable behavior due to overconsumption of margaritas. Our national holiday par excellence is September 15 -- Mexican Independence Day.
