Check Fred on immigration
you'll find Fred Reed, redneck journalist and all-around cynic on immigration, from the viewpoint of an expat American living in Mexico.
Somhow all I can think of is the verse from Kipling's 'Natural Theology'
This was none of the Good Lord's pleasure,
for the spirit He breathed in Man is free
But what comes after is measure for measure,
And not a God that afflicted thee.
As the sowing, so the reaping
Is now and evermore shall be,
Thou art delivered into thine own keeping,
Only thyself hath afflicted thee!
