SB 1070: How Dare Mexico Criticize Arizona!

In the wake of Arizona governor Jan Brewer’s signing of strict illegal immigration legislation(SB 1070), Mexico has the audacity to criticize us? The way I see it, Mexico is largely responsible for the border problem. Mexico allows and encourages their citizens to pour over the border in search of free healthcare and welfare.

The people that are coming here have very little to offer. Many of them cannot read and write their own language. They have willfully turned their backs on their own people and abandoned their country.

Mexicans don't care about laws, politics, national or cultural pride. They come as interlopers and usurpers. They're Third World urchins and will do whatever they need to get what they want. That's the mentality we're up against.

Why is Mexico pushing us to water down our own immigration laws and policies, when its own immigration laws are the toughest on the continent?

Mexican gov't slams Ariz. immigration law

MEXICO CITY - The Mexican government is criticizing a tough immigration law approved this week by Arizona legislators, saying Wednesday it could result in rights violations and racial profiling and affect cross-border relations.

Mexico's Foreign Relations Department said in a statement relayed through Mexico’s U.S. Embassy that it views the measure with great concern and that it "could have potentially serious effects on the civil rights" of Mexican nationals.

Perhaps, the United States should mirror Mexico’s immigration policies. Under Mexican law, it is a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico. Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118) I think that is a great policy.

Opponents: Bill 'hateful, motivated by racism'

As Gov. Jan Brewer signed one of the toughest immigration bills into law Friday,
Hispanic groups and many religious leaders are rising up in opposition, calling
the bill "a slap in the face," "political suicide," and "hateful and motivated
by racism."

Napoleon Pisano, a member of the Mesa Association of Hispanic Citizens, said
even though he was born and raised in Arizona, he is now considered a "person
under suspicion." Pisano, a Mesa resident, is a Vietnam War veteran and said
despite defending the U.S., he now has to prove he's a citizen.

As things are today, Mexicans found to be in the U.S. illegally are simply sent back to Mexico with a free bus ride and a bag lunch. While at the same time, a person found to be in Mexico illegally can expect to spend several years trying to survive in a filthy Mexican prison.

Mexico's Immigration Law: Let's Try It Here At Home

Mexico has a radical idea for a rational immigration policy that most Americans would love. However, Mexican officials haven’t been sharing that idea with us as they press for our Congress to adopt the McCain-Kennedy immigration reform bill.

That's too bad, because Mexico, which annually deports more illegal aliens than the United States does, has much to teach us about how it handles the immigration issue. Under Mexican law, it is a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico.

We should use Mexico’s own immigration laws as a model for new immigration policies here in the U.S. It seems to be working for Mexico.

"Arizona acted decisively today to enforce the rule of law and truly secure the border." --J.D. Hayworth, candidate for U.S. Senate, Arizona
