“Mexico’s Glass House”

24 Apr

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently signed a new immigration bill authorizing local and state police to investigate potential immigration violations, a measure that had overwhelming and bipartisan support in the state.   Obama quickly called it “irresponsible” and is threatening to pursue civil-rights legal action against them.  Obama stated that this bills “threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.”

Now take a look at Mexico’s immigration policy.

Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

  • in the country legally;
  • have the means to sustain themselves economically;
  • not destined to be burdens on society;
  • of economic and social benefit to society;
  • of good character and have no criminal records; and
  • contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

The law also ensures that:

  • immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
  • foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
  • foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
  • foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
  • foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
  • those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

“All of the above runs contrary to what Mexican leaders are demanding of the United States. The stark contrast between Mexico’s immigration practices versus its American immigration preachings is telling. It gives a clear picture of the Mexican government’s agenda: to have a one-way immigration relationship with the United States.”

Keep this in mind when you hear claims of racism and bigotry coming from the Left on this issue.
