Immigration and Fireants
It was a terrifying story of a fire ant invasion, where the many million strong column of ants defied every attempt to deflect them or halt them in their hundred-yard-wide swath of death and destruction. Every leaf on every tree was eaten, every blade of grass, every plant, anything edible, was gone. Unfortunate workers on the plantation that somehow fell down were swarmed and bitten to death, then systematically eaten as well. I had dreams about these ants and their raw power of numbers that could conquer a large plantation that just happened to be in their way. Is this what we in the US face from the massive invasion of Hispanics from Mexico?
