We also have to create a radical cultural change. Just as if a white group said, “I’m part of the volk,” we don’t like that. We’re going to have to tell the Chicano groups there’s no more La Raza, there’s no more MEChA, no more “a bronze state for a bronze people”, no more of that 1960’s ideology of separatism and hatred. We can’t tolerate it……We have (to prepare to meet them) with social censor from everybody because we do not want to go down the path of Rwanda or the Balkans. (We should have) one language, one culture, many races — and that’ll send a message as well to potential illegal immigrants that if you come to the U.

No, if you come to the U.S., you’re going to have to do it legally and you’re going to have to learn English immediately in an immersion program and you’re not going to get any special weight whatsoever for being Mexican. You’ll be treated like an Italian or a Greek or a Korean or Punjabi.
There’s not going to be any guilt, affirmative action, victimization culture just because you crossed the border illegally and that can’t be done by government alone.
