Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Seeking Blessings for Mexican Born Soldiers Iraq

The Austin American Statesman has this storyabout people praying for the soldiers. Many of these men and women join the military in an effort to get their citizenship.

I remember reading about one of the first casualties in Iraq. He was a soldier that joined to obtain citizenship and I thought that was so sad. And after he died he was awarded his citizenship but it still cost his family about $80 and that was enraging.

This always been going since the US embarked on wars, it is not new and it is not going to stop. There were reports from my home town Tijuana that they were recruiting people there, read here for that piece and many of my fellow citizens from Tijuana have died in this recent war. Offering citizenship has always been a gancho to hook people in the US. Whether its bad or good I have no idea. This was very much the case during WWII.
