I just want to know when Mexico will unveil the statue of Washington, Lincoln, & Reagan in the town square of Tijuana?

Heroes and other historical figures from Mexico could soon have a public space in Dallas where Mexicans and their descendants can pay tribute to them.

Under a plan coordinated by city officials, community leaders and the Mexican consul-general in Dallas, the statues of at least eight Mexican heroes would be on permanent display at Winnetka Park in West Dallas, the recreational center where the statue of former Mexican President Benito Juarez is displayed.

“It will be a rotunda dedicated to the heroes of Mexican history,” said Carlos Garcia De Alba, the Mexican consul-general.

He said the display, to be named “La Rotonda de los Mexicanos Ilustres,” could be the first of its kind in the U.S.

[…]”We’re just waiting to get the word on when we’ll be able to have this space available for our heroes,” said Isidro Gomez, president of Club Lazaro Cardenas del Rio.

Mr. Gomez has kept the bust of former President Lazaro Cardenas del Rio in his home for several months.

Mr. De Alba said other important Mexicans are under consideration for the display, including poet Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, independence figures Jose Maria Morelos y Pavon, Vicente Guerrero and Ignacio Zaragoza, and revolutionary Emiliano Zapata.

Why do they feel it’s necessary to put statues of Mexican heroes on US soil? What the hell does it have to do with America? Nothing.

I guess “Remember the Alamo” is no more.
