Baja Ha Ha


Americans are buying up chunks of Mexico’s Baja California, according to the New York Times. The article includes this bizarre observation: “They say they have no idea how many Americans are living in Baja today, because a certain number are illegal immigrants who never register their presence. Anecdotal and statistical evidence suggests that the number is more than 100,000, probably far more, and growing fast since the Sept. 11 attacks and the souring of the economy in the United States two years ago.” The article goes on to quote people suggesting that Americans are over-regulated and don’t have as much “freedom” as Mexicans.
