Posted on 04/27/2010 9:29:20 PM PDT by IdeeFixe
Mexican President Felipe Calderon has accused Arizona of opening the door "to intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement." But Arizona has nothing on Mexico when it comes to cracking down on illegal aliens. While open-borders activists decry new enforcement measures signed into law in "Nazi-zona" last week, they remain deaf, dumb or willfully blind to the unapologetically restrictionist policies of our neighbors to the south.
The Arizona law bans sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws, stiffens penalties against illegal alien day laborers and their employers, makes it a misdemeanor for immigrants to fail to complete and carry an alien registration document, and allows the police to arrest immigrants unable to show documents proving they are in the U.S. legally. If those rules constitute the racist, fascist, xenophobic, inhumane regime that the National Council of La Raza, Al Sharpton, Catholic bishops and their grievance-mongering followers claim, then what about these regulations and restrictions imposed on foreigners?

This is SO untrue...Mexico would never treat people like that because all the evil republicans are in the US. /s
They’re worse then hypocrites, the Mexico govt is corrupt and evil.
This is a perfect article. I’d really like to believe that any person with ANY shred of common sense would understand the point of the article, but somehow I speculate 50% of those that read it would somehow spin it into America being rasict even though we allow, by far, the most diverse legal immigrant pool of any country on earth.
How Mexico treats illegal aliens is IRRELEVANT. If the Arizona law is a good law then it’s a good law on its own merits (i.e. it’s constitutional) and does not need to be justified by comparison to what a foreign country does. Trying to demonstrate the validity of a law by comparing it to what foreign countries do is undermining the true source of its validity.
I’m not commenting on the law itself here (I don’t know its details well enough to do that, but It looks like a good law to me so far) but just on this article. In other words, is your constitution enough to justify this law? if so then whatever Mexico’s law happens to be is, or at least should be, irrelevant.
Beg to differ...it is relevant what other countries do in the overall argument. That was a huge part of the argument for socialized medicine. What other countries are doing. The same crowd always brings up the "global community" angle. How many countries in the world are you required to show your papers when asked? One can't have it both ways. Reference other countries when it suits your agenda and ignore it when it doesn't.
“One can’t have it both ways. Reference other countries when it suits your agenda and ignore it when it doesn’t. “
Sure, I see what you’re saying. The healthcare issue you mentioned is a good example of why what other countries do should be irrelevant. I’m on the opposite side of that particular issue than most here because I support the level of socialized medicine we have here in Australia, which is a completely different system to yous in just about every respect (very different to obamacare, also) but what we do should have no bearing on what laws you pass. Your country, your rules, and what the rest of the world does is irrelevant.
Mexico...WHAT A WASTE!
An enterprising Republican should enter Mexico’s Immigration Law as a Bill in Congress.
“An enterprising Republican should enter Mexicos Immigration Law as a Bill in Congress”.
It would be racist to NOT do so, from what I’m being told.
“Theyre worse then hypocrites, the Mexico govt is corrupt and evil.”
The US government gets more and more corrupt and evil with every passing day. We need to get back to being a christian nation, and boot out all the atheists, and secularists. We’d better be limiting those who practice the religion of peace too.
They're nativism extends to their oil industry where they still refuse to allow their NAFTA partners to assist with oil exploration/ drilling. Thus depriving themselves of billions of dollars every year.
Even Castro's Cuba has started to allow Canadian oil companies to do work there.
How insane is it that Mexico still pursues an energy policy to the left of Fidel Castro's...?
So if Obama, Reid and Pelosi ruin our country, this is the reception we can expect when we try to cross the border to Mexico looking for freedom and work?
If you own a business, Mexico will welcome you. If you’re looking for work that their citizens won’t do...good luck.
Totally insane. But then that's why people are fleeing Mexico for a "better life" here. What irks me is all the Mexican flags and pro-Mexico attitude of people who come here. If Mexico is so great they'd be living there.
Why not, they used the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938(1934?) as boilerplate for the U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968!
I would support most of the Mex. law being adopter here.
The real place to bring these facts out is directly to the Mex. president.
We should not get too hung up on Mex. alone, the entire world sends their problems here, and many refuse to allow them to be repatriated.
