If the U.S. Were to “Colonize” Perhaps the Caravan Could Remain in Place

With all of these people suddenly coming to America, I wonder, what if the U.S. would simply expand? A southward settlement perhaps. Instead of them smuggling into the country, what if America simply came to them? It seems the nations they left and the nations they cross have no issue with the caravan.

If America would colonize Mexico, Central and South America, all of this would immediately be solved. They would all be granted citizenship, they would get their own legitimate Social Security numbers. Plus, the infrastructure is already there, all they must do is raise the U.S. Flag on their soil, higher than their current national colors and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Think about it, no more avocado wars, no more jobs being lost, no more dangerous vacation resorts. A total win win. Just recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the Star Spangled Banner. America takes care of its own. Become a citizen of the greatest nation the world has ever witnessed.

      Nothing, except when it comes to America and the settlers. America was settled and immigration came from Europe to provide more “diversity” to the continent.

  1. It’s interesting to talk about immigration in the U.S., THE immigration land. I wonder how that idea of colonization would sound to the Latino American countries, even to President Trump 🙂 maybe that would indeed be a solution. And if it works, Europe could do the same with Africa. Oops, but they already did, and the outcome was not very pretty.
    I’m just teasing 😉

      Wasn’t it Spain that colonized central and South America? Africa as well, France colonized much of Africa as well.

      1. It was them. What country can day nowadays that they are not a product of immigration ? There have always been waves of people going from one place to another in search of a better life. Who is to blame ?

          Wasn’t it the Moors that invaded and colonized the majority of Southern Europe to include Spain, Italy and southern France?

          1. They did, and stayed quite a long time. And before them tribes coming from the North, and before that, tribes coming from the East, and before that, tribes coming from Africa they say. And before that ? We Don’t know yet. But I’m sure we’ll find out in the near future. I find the history of migrations fascinating. What’s even more fascinating is how strongly people want to belong to a certain land, a certain race, etc. Isn’t it just enough to belong to the human species, and to be from planet Earth? I Wonder 🙂

              We all want to be viewed as unique, yet we cling to “tribes”. We are afraid to be unique to truly stand on our own.

      2. Britain colonized India. France was also pretty thick in Vietnam. The Dutch were in the Brazil area and white farmers in SA (the ones being murdered) are of Dutch descent, mostly.

        So, the idea here is…if they invade us, we invade right back? It is an interesting idea but, would be a nightmare in practice.

        1. bottomlesscoffee007

          I think the nightmare depends on where you would stand? For the caravan, possibly the U.S. is the land of the free and the home of the brave. For some of the citizens in America, it’s a nightmare due to the job loss and more people syphoning tax payer benefits, who don’t pay taxes.

          1. I was thinking more of the not-so-obvious parts. Your suggestion covers South America and “infrastructure in place”. The folks running from war & poverty & drug gangs…we would just annex that? Venezuela’s mess? Nicaragua’s mess? Our government or military would be overwhelmed.

            Besides Costa Rica & Belize, what infrastructure would we be gaining? We would get natural resources but, the locals that don’t want to be there would come north to us. Who would, then, go south to harvest/manage said resources?

            What about the hold-outs? The Chileans don’t look like they want to be annexed. Peru?

            I see a big fat nightmare.

              True, then again, anything worth doing is never easy. I’m not saying it’s the right thing to do, but for some reason we are expected to adjust for them, instead of them conforming to us.

              1. Well…conforming to us… That is a relative statement. When we had the influx of Irish early last century, they didn’t automatically stop being Irish. New York, in particular, has immigrant sections that stayed to themselves and spoke their languages…Russians, Italians… Ever heard of Chinatown? Did you know there are two very large concentrations of ARVNs & their families in Texas? It isn’t just the muslims that won’t ‘blend’. Sometimes, other cultures take a generation or two to become “Americanized”.

                And, just for the record, when the Pilgrims and/or European colonists got here, they didn’t ‘adapt’ to the local, established culture. They brought their own & most of them kept it. If our ancestors (well most of mine…I don’t know your heritage) had become “Americanized” to our ‘today’ standards & demands, my area of the country would be speaking a bizarre mixture of European English, Appalachia style Cherokee, Lumbee & Occaneechi Sapona dialects.

                Instead, most were marched to Oklahoma.

                Context and…perspective.
