Should anyone wonder why we need to start getting tougher, this may help them understand.As if it wasn’t enough to see illegal immigrants rallying to demand their rights several weeks ago, now we have the Mexican government stating they will sue the U.S. if we finally enforce our laws and protect the citizenry of our sovereign nation.
“Mexico warned Tuesday it would file lawsuits in U.S. courts if National Guard troops detain migrants on the border and some officials said they fear the crackdown will force illegal crossers into more perilous areas to avoid detection.”
Here’s a suggestion to the government of Mexico. Clean your own house. Make Mexico a place that provides opportunity for its’ citizens so they won’t feel the need to come here. End the corruption that is (reportedly) rampant there and start working for all your people.
“In Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Julieta Nunez Gonzalez, the local representative of Mexico’s National Immigration Institute, said Tuesday she will ask the Mexican government to send a protection force, Grupo Beta, to remote sections of the border.”
Does this not sound like a conflict in the making? I suggested we may need to establish a DMZ at the border. Which would, I suppose, give us a bigger area to catch tresspassers in. Oh, and by the way, isn’t this actually saying that the Mexican government is complicit in illegals breaking our laws (much known, but never so blatantly stated).
“Sending the National Guard “will not stop the flow of migrants. To the contrary, it will probably go up,” as people try to get into the U.S. with hopes of applying for a possible amnesty program, Nunez said.”
And there you go. All the more reason NOT to have any “path to citizenship” (aka amnesty) provisions. Perhaps an officially declared pause to all immigration is the smart step to take. Perhaps when the big doors close with a resounding bang, this message will be come clear: We are serious this time. Apparently, the boycott of France after they stabbed us in the back at the beginning of the Iraq war was strongly felt in that country. Perhaps it’s time to do the same thing with Mexico. Don’t buy Mexican products. I mean, the bulk of Mexico’s workers are here and Mexico doesn’t export too many consumer goods, but I’ll give up tequilla for the cause. U.S. lawmakers: Do the right thing. Shut this border down, now!
