You can argue that Santa Ana is an ethnic enclave. It still wouldnt mean that it is like Mexico. Not anymore than Little Tehran in West LA is like Iran, or Little Tokyo like Japan. The ethnic ghetto is quintessentially American.

I wonder if it was considered a third world country before we came to pick avocados.

But what can you expect from a guy whose user name is Caliguy.
If you mean by population, San Diego has 1.3 million people, therefore about 3% of people who live in CA live in San Diego.

and yes I disagree with this Caliguy guy

Why would people sneak into a third world country on boats in the middle of the night?

Signs in Spanish.. you think you're in mexico...move to other neighborhoods and really the only thing that separates US from the third world is welfare and government supplied services

Thank a Democrat for the failed policies dragging California into Mexico north
