No one is forcing people to come to this country illegally

Editor, Ceres Courier,

What I would really like to explain is how those who enter Mexico illegally are treated.

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 Mexican society.  There are no bilingual programs in the school and no pressing 2 for English.  All business must be conducted in Spanish.  Article 34 states that foreigners must have 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.  Article 127 state any Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner is subject to five years in prison.

No one forced any of those who came to America to come illegally.  While the Democrats are pushing for those to come to overwhelm the system and to create havoc so the conditions look bad or the media using photos of those in cages during the Obama administration in an attempt to make the Trump administration look bad, the fact is those in the detention centers are welcome to return home.

As a nation, we must enforce our laws, encourage legal immigration, and take care of our own here in America before we reach out to the rest of the world.
