Why We Must Deport Dorothy & Her Band of Migrant Thugs Back to Kansas

(Hint: Just look at the ax, the deadly claws, the water pistol and other weapons hidden behind the deceptive smiles)

Of America will give away (yes!) a FREE TRIP TO OZ to the first person who can briefly explain why this report in yesterday’s Kansas City Star is news:


Deportation under way in crackdown on illegal immigrant


The Star’s Jefferson City correspondent

JEFFERSON CITY | The Missouri Highway Patrol’s new policy of checking the immigration status of people who are arrested has resulted in the patrol’s first catch, officials said Thursday.

Jose Guadalupe Delacruz, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, was arrested Tuesday by Camden County sheriff’s officials in connection with an alleged assault, the patrol said. The sheriff’s office then contacted the Highway Patrol.

Troopers checked the man’s identity against a federal database and found he was not in the country lawfully, officials said.

They also learned there was a Jackson County warrant for the man’s arrest for allegedly driving after his license had been revoked.

Delacruz is in the Camden County jail awaiting deportation, officials said.

The coverage of the arrest of one undocumented person, Mr. Delacruz, for a being involved in an altercation would, in any other large city, be a small blurb at best. And note the decision of the reporter, Mr. Hoover, to use of ‘hunter-hunted’ metaphor inherent in the word “catch” to refer to law enforcement’s arrest of Mr. Delacruz. Hoover’s choice reflects what UCLA linguist Otto Santa Ana says, in his must-read book , Brown Tide Rising: Metaphors of Latinos in Contemporary American Public Discourse, is the “foundational racism against Chicanos and Latinos that has persisted since the late nineteenth century.”


21rst century migrants like Delacruz are landing miraculously in the same heartland where revered 19th century journalist, author and civilizational booster Frank Baum set his The Wizard Oz. Unfortunately, they and most devotees of Dorothy and her amigos have no idea that the yellow brick road was paved with pain and radical antipathy to non-whites in Missouri, Kansas & other Great Plains states. Before penning the Wizard of Oz, Baum, for example, wrote editorials calling for the “extermination” of Indians in the name of “civilization.” And many credit these editorials with helping build momentum for the massacre at Wounded Knee.


In sum, I think that the reason that one arrest of one undocumented person in Kansas makes news, the reason human beings in the heartland can be called a “catch” is because of history, culture and tradition there in the land of Oz.


So, it’s time to deport Dorothy and her motley crew of migrant racist thugs from Oz, Missouri back across the border to Kansas state and throw them in migrant jails, where they should then form part of the chain gang replacing those immigrants leaving the wheat and corn fields to grow their own Oz.

    send me my boletos.
    “driving after his license had been revoked.”

    when i read that an undocumented worker qualifies for a driver license in missouri, i’ve been shown the news.

    in california undocumented people cannot get a license so every time they drive they break a bullsh*t law. pero saben que? i support locking up hoodlums nisiquiera their citizenry but judging each case individually. if the national did not assault someone, Sr. Jose Guadalupe Delacruz needs to be set free with a five minute headstart.

    we are prey, those of us without papers. we get caught. the news hides behind the facts. one person incarcerated out of thousands weekly in kansas missouri. you might enjoy reading a novel, cloudsplitter, about the road john brown the crazy abolitionist traveled, from that part of the country to parts east. a ver.
