Editor, Ceres Courier,
Americans who oppose illegal immigration have been called racist and unsympathetic? Liberals have even gone out of their way to remove the word "illegal" and replace it with "undocumented." They demand those here illegally receive the same benefits as Americans. However, how does Mexico treat those entering their country illegally?
According to Mexico's immigration laws, every article of law controls illegal immigration into Mexican territory.
If you immigrate to Mexico, Article 32 states you must speak Spanish and must be a professional who is useful to the Mexican society. There are no bilingual programs in the school and no pressing 2 for English. All business must be conducted in Spanish.
Investors are welcome; but must pay higher than minimum wage and your land purchases are restricted.
Article 34 states that foreigners must have the necessary funds to support themselves and their dependents. There are no welfare programs, food stamps, government housing or entitlements.
Article 87 states foreigners must be "physically and mentally healthy."
Articles 73, 85, 86, 87 state foreigners must be on a national population registry, cooperating with federal local, and municipal police.
Article 116 states foreigners using fake documents face a fine and imprisonment. Immigrants must show birth certificate to show citizenship.
Articles 117-121 state foreigners who fail to obey laws will be fined, deported, and felons imprisoned. No one is allowed to enter the country with a criminal record. There is no due process of deportation.
There is no 14th Amendment. Law enforcement officers are required to enforce Mexico's immigration laws at all times.
Articles 123-126 make illegal immigration a felony.
Articles 127 state any Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner is subject to five years in prison.
While there are many people who come to America legally each year, there are millions of those in America that have come illegally. Instead of our government enforcing the law, such as they do in Mexico, these illegal immigrants do not assimilate into society causing the American taxpayer to spend billions of dollars for services each year. The total estimated cost by the American taxpayer is $383 billion each year according to policallyincorrectfacts.com. Taxpayers pay for welfare, social services, food stamps, WIC, free school lunches, free housing, health care, primary and secondary education. American taxpayers pay billions each year for anchor babies, children born in America from illegal mothers. Three million is spent each day to support illegal immigrants in prison. Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants each year in the United States. All criminal costs does not include billions spent on attorney and court cost paid by the American taxpayer.
Today, illegal immigrants are provided services in whatever language they desire. Many states are now providing driver's licenses. The Democrat party is also pandering to allow those in America illegally the opportunity to vote. While the Democrat party claims to be the party for the poor, they consider this an opportunity for them to bring more poor into America to receive more votes and congressional power. However, with millions of illegal immigrants in America, there are less jobs available for the working poor in America. Hence, those in black America have a higher unemployment rate since Obama became president and 46 million Americans are currently on food stamps, which is the highest amount in American history.
If our political leaders think it is so good to bring in so many illegal immigrants, why not just open the border and allow anyone into America and pay for it all with an ongoing printing press of debt to the American economy? As crazy as that question may sound, that is exactly what our political leaders are doing.
