Human Events has a 2006 article showing the hypocrisy in how Mexico’s Constitution and Laws treat illegal immigration versus how the Mexican Government decries and opposes the US’s feeble and weaker attempts to deal with rampant illegal immigration from Mexico into the USA.
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.
That all seems pretty sane and reasonable to me. It’s too bad, in this one aspect, that we don’t emulate Mexico.
