When you have no gravity but want a sammich on the International Space Station, what’s a hungry astronaut to do? Canuckian spaceman Chris Hadfield makes outer space burritos with peanut butter and honey.
The patriots of the Motor City aren’t fooled by Canadia’s plans to pay for a new international bridge to replace the aging Ambassador Bridge to Windsor, Ontario. The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart sent Al Madrigal to Detroit (and Canadia!) to find out why soccer moms, Tea Partiers and the Black Panthers are all opposed to this suspicious scheme. SPOILER: Cheap milk and Chinamen. Disclaimer: Madrigal is POCHO’s Migrant Editor.
POCHO has seen the future of downloadable interdimensional Canadian lucha libre videogames, and its name is Guacamelee! Just tell us what dimension we need to go to and what border we need to cross, and we will do it! Until Canuckian gamesters Drinkbox Studios release this title, we are on permanent Guacameleewatch!
President Obama’s groundbreaking executive order halting the deportation of innocent kids brought cheers and hateful feedback from the right wing mediocracy, more Mexicans are bypassing the U.S. and heading to Canadia and a mathematician proved Chicanos have only one degree of separation.

(PNS reporting from OTTAWA) A recent study from the Canadian Undocumented Labor Office here (CULO) reveals more and more undocumented immigrants are bypassing Los United Estates, preferring to seek a better life in Canadia.
Analysts say this could have major consequences for the U.S. economy, agriculture, Republican scapegoating and the sales of leaf blowers.
A TIME magazine story will examine this trend next month, heralding the creation of a new country called “MEXICANADA.” A rough draft of the story was provided by a inside source to PNS.
“Undocumented immigrants are discovering that America is not really the land of the free it was cracked up to be, and they’re having second thoughts,” Monty Real, a CULO researcher, told TIME. “When they get to Canadia, on the other hand, they find a country that has socialized medicine, a better track record on bilingual education, labor and the environment. And most importantly, the police there won’t kill you.” [Mas…]
What if the Insane Clown Posse moved to French Canadia and made a Spanglish hip-hop video in an insane asylum? Mira! This crazy video by The O.C. comes from the Montreal Hip-Hop en Español scene. The O.C.is a duo made up of MCs Chele and One from Heavy Soundz and featuring many members of the Del Mondongo crew. Del Mondongo is a label/collective formed by a circle of Latino MCs: Boogat, Alquimia Verbal and Heavy Soundz – two all-star hip-hop crews that splinter into different side and solo projects. Loco, eh? (Crazy NSFW language.)
Gov. Jerry Brown has sworn in UC Riverside professor Juan Felipe Herrera as California’s Poet Laureate — the first Chicano to get the honor. In this video, Herrera reads his poem 187 reasons Mexicanos can’t cross the border. The poem illustrates the difference between Jerry Brown’s California and Jan Brewer’s Hate State of Arizona, where Mexican-American Studies are outlawed. Cali isn’t perfect, but at least we know where we came from.
A busy ñewsweek brought the return to glory of the original self-deportationist, Daniel D. Portado, who, it turns out, is a fictional character created by POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz; an Alabama plan to import Canadians to replace the immigrant labor that used to keep the state running; and militant MEChA murmurings about the Lack of Visible Latinos in the hit BBC/PBS series Downton Abbey.

(PNS reporting from DIXIE) In a move to avoid further financial ruin and humiliation, Alabama legislators are considering an unusual measure called the “Canuck Program” that would “import” laborers from Canadia to fill empty Alabama jobs. Immigrant Mexican labor has all but disappeared from the Alabama landscape and the state has lost $10.8 billion in [...]
