Mexico Reacts to Arizona Immigration Law

April 27, 2010

If Roles Were Reversed? U.S. Citizens Would be Arrested for Protesting in Mexico

As you’ve probably heard, Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill on April 23, 2010 that gives state police the authority to question whether an individual is in the United States legally and would consider it a crime for people to be unlawfully in the state. She said she was forced to act because Washington has failed to stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs from Mexico.  Under the new law, people without proper documentation could be arrested and face jail time of up to six months and a fine of $2,500.00.

Voice of America’s, VOANews.com reports today that Mexico has issued a travel alert for it’s citizens traveling to Arizona.  In a statement, Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it urges Mexicans to “act with prudence and with respect to the local legal framework.”  The statement goes on to say that once the law takes effect, every Mexican citizen may be harassed and questioned without further cause at any time.

This brings up a valid question.  Specifically, what laws does Mexico have in place to deal with foreigners within its borders?  According to the San Bernadino Sun, Mexico’s constitution and its General Population Act – its main law addressing immigration – include provisions that make it a felony to be an illegal immigrant and allow for local police to aid immigration authorities in making arrests.

ACORN Plays the Race Card

September 17, 2009

With serious heat and light now shining on ACORN, Bertha Lewis, the group’s CEO told ABC News that all the negative attention is a “modern day form of McCarthyism” and said ACORN’s efforts help make sure “poor people, young people, minorities are participating in this democracy.” She went on to say that “There is an undertone of racism here. I think they’re basically saying these people shouldn’t be trusted, how could they be trusted? You know, they’re all poor black and brown people.”

Meanwhile FBI Director Robert Mueller said yesterday that he had only recently heard about the ACORN videos but that given the preliminary information, it is the type of thing that the FBI and Justice Department “would look at.”

ACORN Stung…Again!

September 17, 2009

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles have done it again.  Their fifth video was filmed at the ACORN office in San Diego and it appears that the ACORN worker actually offers to help bring under age girls to the USA for the purposes of prostitution.  To see it, please visit www.BigGovernment.com

Many people say that ACORN should lose all federal funding.  They were on track to receive Billions next year.  I agree and so do all but 7 US Senators…good luck to those 7 in getting re-elected!  But I have a bigger issue with ACORN.  How many real criminals have they helped break federal and state laws against prostitution, tax evasion and fraud, among others?  Can you say RICO?  Why is the FBI not at every ACORN office in the country right now sifting through email and other records?  Who is protecting this organization and why?
