Mexico’s Foreign Ministry released a comic book entitled “Guide for the Mexican Migrant in 2004.” It includes (a) safe ways to cross Mexico’s northern border illegally, (b) a primer of illegal aliens rights in the U.S. and (c) advice on living illegally under the radar in the U.S.
In 2005 an official of Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said some 1.5 million copies had already been distributed. By no means is the “Guide” an ordinary comic book. It is a detailed how-to manual for illegal aliens. It lists 22 Mexican Consulate locations and phone numbers in the U.S. and contact numbers for 23 U.S. major cities, such as Atlanta.
Mexican Consulates in the U.S. provide a matricula consular ID card as documentation for applicants. Among other things, that card can be used to board a plane in the U.S.
By January 2005, according to the Mexico City newspaper Universal, 4.5 million Mexicans had matricula consular IDs that were accepted in 386 cities, 164 counties and 338 financial institutions in the U.S. and Mexico’s stated goal was to have issued 6 million by that years end. In 2005, 10 states in the U.S. accepted the matricula consular as valid ID for issuing an American drivers license to replace the matricula as ID. Matriculas are so easy to get, it’s not uncommon for American police to see individuals that have several of them in different names.
These matricular cards are a terrorists’ dream. This tells the American people exactly why there is such a huge illegal alien problem in the United States. Why would a government encourage its citizens to leave their home country and enter their neighboring country illegally. Why would that government make the effort to print all the information their citizens need to do this successfully.
Think about it. Mexicans in the United States, whether illegal or legal, send $35 billion annually to Mexico. In 10 years that’s $350 billion; in another 10 years it’s $700 billion; in another 10 years it’s over a $1 trillion dollars. And the Mexican government didn’t have to lift a finger to get the $1,000,000,000,000. Hand ‘em the comic book and send ‘em across the border and wait for the dough to start rolling in.
This doesn’t even touch on the tremendous amount of money Americans spend on Latinos every year and the crime suffered by U.S. citizens. Cash-strapped states spending billions of dollars they don’t have on citizens of Mexico and Latin America for jails and welfare. Thousands and thousands of innocent American citizens murdered and maimed every year by criminal Latinos and drunk drivers.
Mexico is one of the worlds’ largest economies and is considered an upper middle income country by the World Bank. They have resources to care for their poor. But what incentive do they have to do that? The border is wide open and it’s so easy to send them across the border and let the taxpayers of the USA bear the financial burden.
The time for the Mexican government to step up and start taking care of its own citizens is long overdue — 500 years overdue. They can tax their own people the way our citizens are taxed. And they can use a percentage of the profits from all the government owned industries to provide services for their citizens. And it is long overdue for our government to step up and put an end to this shameful practice.
The Mexican government is actually formulating United States immigration policy and enforcing it. And getting no resistance from our government. If amnesty is granted to the millions of Mexican citizens sent here by the Mexican government, we are disavowing not only our own immigration laws but our own republic and our own sovereignty. We are depending on a foreign power to tell us what our immigration laws will be.
We can no longer call ourselves a republic, a nation of laws, if our government itself refuses to obey and enforce our laws, immigration laws included. That is unless we put the word banana in front of it. This once great sovereign nation is now unable (or unwillling) to protect its sovereignty.
Sad. Sad. Sad.
