According to an associated press article, Mexico’s President Calderon has directed his diplomats to “neutralize” anti-immigrant attitudes in America and Canada. This after he chastised presidential candidates (Republican I’m sure) for their macho swagger, and warned congress not to attach any strings to the money they are going to give him.
These people have guts. What rights to Americans have in Mexico. The right to be kidnapped? What happens to an American in a car accident in Mexico? Can Americans buy property in Mexico? Do we have the right to have our children educated in Mexico?
Mexico believes their citizens are entitled to all the rights and benefits America has to offer, but don’t see a need to offer any hospitality. Americans could live like kings if they retired to Mexico. That is not a viable option.
I normally don’t allow myself to be too critical of others. The old glass house thing you know? But I am really getting sick and tired of Mexican officials telling us what we better do.
So I have a few words for Filepe Calderon. First and most importantly we don’t have problems with immigrants or Mexicans. You are overly sensitive because a large majority of the illegal immigrants are Mexican. Corruption and poor policy are the fault of our government not the people of this country. If Mexicans have to wait in line to come to America that is because it is a great place to live, and it is worth the wait.
President Calderon, you should concentrate your thoughts on what is going on in Mexico to cause so many millions of your citizens to flee. No jobs, corruption, poverty, poor education are all issues you can dedicate yourself to solving. Solve those basic issues and you will no longer need to worry about millions of your citizens trying to find their way in America.
The feeling I keep getting from Mexico, and those asserting the rights of Mexicans in America is that they want what they have coming to them.
I will say this loud and clear. Illegal Mexicans have no right to be in America. They have no right to a job, an education, health care, or retirement.
It doesn’t seem that difficult. If you want to come here, humbly submit to our laws, and assimilate. Don’t tell us what we owe you. We owe you nothing. We have been giving to the whole world, sharing technology, aiding in the construction of infrastructure, and often defending the defenseless.
What do we get for all that????
This is a great country. It was built with immigration. We should continue to encourage immigration, but insist it be legal. We continuously hear about what great benefit the illegals are to this country. Illegal immigration is a drain on this country. From the entitlements we pay, to the lower wages across the board from an increased supply of labor, the costs of illegal immigration are hidden.
Someone please stop the madness. Drug gangs are kidnapping our citizens, and crossing our border to protect drug shipments. Terrorists can walk right in to our country. Government officials are selling our secrets to the Chinese. Corporations are building factories that will undoubtedly transfer knowledge about manufacturing to the Chinese as well. In the meantime our allies are making their own way, the Russians are enabling our enemies, and the Chinese are pouring money into their army, navy, and air force.
Leave things to the clowns in Washington, and we will get more of the same. Find some patriots that can stare in the face of corruption and walk away, and we might still have a country when our grandchildren have grandchildren
