Oh the Irony–Mexico is Having Problems Re-Absorbing It’s Citizens

Arizona had an interesting law go into effect January 1, 2008. It’s called the Employer Sanctions Law and requires ALL employers to verify ALL employees are United States citizens. In anticipation of this law going into effect, many illegals from the Tucson and Phoenix areas “self-deported” with their families right around Christmas (normally, the illegals would pack up the family and cross back “home” to visit with the family and then come back here). In anticipation of the new law, the border was full with the illegals moving home.

Well. That’s a good thing.

Then, we have several businesses in Phoenix going belly up and declaring bankruptcy. Three reasons–1) the Employer Sanctions Law; 2) the businesses catered to illegals (who are self-deporting) and 3) if the businesses didn’t specifically cater to illegals, they hired illegals.

This is also a good thing.

Here’s the ironic part…Mexico has issues with the Employer Sanction Law. Mexico is concerned it can’t handle the influx of it’s own citizens back into their home country.

According to a January 4, 2008 AP article entitled “Mexico Criticizes Arizona Employer Sanctions Law” here,

“Measures like the one approved in Arizona do not contribute to solving the issue of migration by workers between the two countries, and ignore the contributions that migrants make to the U.S. economy and society,” Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department said.


The Mexican government considers migration an unavoidable phenomenon given the higher wages in the United States. It strongly opposes tightened U.S. controls such as border fences, and instead wants temporary work-visa programs and legalization of workers in the United States.

Well, what can you expect from a country whose main export is its own citizens? It gets better, folks.

Two articles in Arizona papers today (although I first heard this on the 5:30 p.m. news last night while waiting for my daughter’s softball game to finish).

The first article was published by the Tucson Citizen, Sheryl Kornman reporting and is titled “Sonoran Officials Slam Sanctions Law In Tucson Visit”. The opening paragraphs of this article read:

A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to say Arizona’s new employer sanctions law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.

At a news conference, the legislators said Sonora – Arizona’s southern neighbor, made up of mostly small towns – cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as illegal Mexican workers here return to their hometowns without jobs or money.

a few more tidbits:

“How can they pass a law like this?” asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano Gamez, who represents Nogales.


“Mexico is not prepared for this, for the tremendous problems” it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs, she said.

and the money quote from this article:

“What do we do with the repatriated?” he asked. “As Mexicans, we are worried. They are Mexicans but they are also people – fathers and mothers and young people with jobs” who won’t have work in Sonora.”

Then, there’s this article from Channel 12 News (NBC Affiliate, Phoenix), Melissa Gonzalo reporting and titled “Sonoran Legislators Oppose Employer Sanctions Law” .

Sonoran legislators from Mexico’s PAN democratic party said their state is not prepared for a mass return of Mexican nationals. They met with Arizona legislators at the State Capitol Wednesday morning. They said they understand the reasons for the employer sanctions law, but said they don’t think all the consequences were taken into account.”We are concerned because probably we won’t be able to have all the resources to help in case the amount of people are too many people,” said coordinator of the group, Florencio Diaz Armenta. The delegation from Sonora said they cannot quantify how many people have returned to their state from Arizona, so far. But they said, based on anecdotal information, they know there are two groups returning- day laborers and professionals.

Armenta said Mexico does have a plan in place to help those immigrants returning to their country, but he said it is not enough. He said they plan on continuing to engage in open dialogue with Arizona lawmakers in hopes of reaching an agreement. “There is a history of relationship between the states Arizona and Sonora,” said Armenta. “We have families on both sides, so we have to worry about what happens on both sides of the border.” He said they hope to invite Arizona legislators to meet in Sonora the next time.

The delegation from Sonora also met with LULAC in Tucson.

My take on this? Mexico didn’t think Arizona would follow through. Now, Mexico (the country whose main export is its people) has to find a way to solve their own problems with their own people–and they don’t like it. They are having to deal with the same problems (on a significantly smaller scale at this point) the United States has had to deal with in absorbing their citizens into our country. They are, quite simply, going to have to find solutions to deal with their citizens. They’re going to have to work on their economy, work on their infrastructure, all the things that make a country. They’re not going to be able to count on the illegal earnings flowing back to them from the United States. That money flow is drying up.

And it’s not just Arizona enforcing the laws. Tulsa, Oklahoma is enforcing as well. From World Net Daily, we see this headline (article postes August 25, 2007): “Mandatory Deportation Has Illegals On The Run” with the subtitle of “State Law Limiting Benefits Looms, and Estimated 25,000 Take to Road”. The money quote from this article is here:

“This isn’t about whether you are for or against immigration, or for or against immigrants. It doesn’t matter what your skin color is or if you speak with an accent. What matters is if you are in the country legally or illegally. The only people threatened by House Bill 1804 are those who choose to break the law,” he said.

Expect more whining from Mexico and racist groups such as Aztlan and La Raza. Laws are being enforced, sanctuary cities are rescinding their sanctuary stand (Phoenix for example) and the illegals are peaceably self-deporting.

It’s about time.

“Wow, all I can say is that if mexicans are leaving this country because the country has turned into a “shit-hole” to coin your your charming phrase, could it be at all possible that the massive influx of illegals to this country, demanding rights they weren’t due, giving birth to anchor babies that they couldn’t or wouldn’t pay for or support, depleating the country’s resources of which we had plenty for our citizens who were here legally. And then. The frosting on the cake. Your mexican drug cartels. Your viscious mexican drug gangs including very young children. No, this is not the kind of immigrant our country was built on. If you want to be here and come through legally, become an American, teach your children to become Americans who will with all their hearts pledge allegiance to the United States of America, and be good, productive law abiding citizens. If you’re that kind of citizen I’d be honored to welcome you to America and to shake your hand.

Mexicans are going back because your country has become a shit hole. You have just about finished this shit pot and that is why they are going back. In a few more months americans will see that their presious little shit hole is all theirs and that there is no need to worry. as for the yours ours map… lets see how that map looks in about 20 more years. sometimes people are so arrogant that they lose all sense of logic. how long will it be yours? keep dreaming and don’t forget to wave your flags. AZTLAN 666…. BITCHES!

Hillary Clinton as President will be an extension of Bill Clinton policy on Foreign Trade Illegal immigration and non action against terrorist.
NAFTA-CAFTA and WTO Trade policy. Clinton promised that “NAFTA will create 200,000 good paying American jobs in the first two years of its effect” and “a million jobs in the first five years of its impact.” Of course, this did not happen, but Hillary continues on the path to slave the American working class by supporting this Trade policies and amnesty to illegal aliens.
The US Department of commerce report that the trade deficit or gap between what the United States sells abroad and what it imports, reached a new high of $763.3 billion last year, a 6.5 percent increase over the year before. The deficit was fueled by the continuing American need for foreign oil and imports of consumer goods from China and other countries.
The record trade deficit is not surprise; since Bill Clinton signed the NAFTA, CAFTA and the WTO trade agreements we have nothing but deficits, from 379.5 Billions in 2000 to 763.3 in 2007 an increase of 101.13 %. Thanks’ to Bill Clinton, President Bush, and his father, we are in this economic mess. Trade is certainly one of the most significant causes, because it hurts workers in several ways. First, the steady growth in our trade deficits over the past two decades has eliminated millions of U.S. manufacturing jobs, this growing trade deficits eliminate good jobs and reduce average wages and hurts the economy. Since then, many more jobs have been lost to NAFTA, CAFTA and other sources of our trade problems, including China, and recently, Europe.
Illegal Immigration hurts our economic, but Hillary Clinton support illegal immigration and wants amnesty for the illegal aliens. Last year Latin American migrants in the U.S. transferred $53 billion to $55 billion to their native countries, according to the Inter-American Development Bank. About $20 billion went to Mexico, $12 billion to Central America and the Dominican Republic, and the rest to South American countries. Remittances sent by Mexicans topped $26 billion on 2007, 3 percent higher than the amount sent in 2006, according to Mexico’s central bank, this year’s annual figure hit a new record. Savings scraped together by nannies, painters, construction workers and others working in the USA are now Mexico’s second-largest source of foreign revenue, after oil exports and ahead of tourism. So here we have our own elected officials helping undermine our economic. Most significant is the cost of social services. Total cost is a whopping $338.3 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.
When the terrorists first tried to take down the World Trade Center, Bill Clinton treated the act of war as a petty misdemeanor, relying on policemen and lawyers to prosecute the “guilty.” Clinton never visited the site of the attack, and, to my recollection, never mentioned it in public. The ringleader of the attack escaped, we now know, to Iraq.
When the terrorists murdered American servicemen in Somalia in 1993, Clinton retreated. When they plotted to assassinate former President Bush and the Pope, Clinton had no comment. Even when they plotted to assassinate President Clinton himself in the Philippines in 1995, Clinton took no visible offense. When, in 1995, a plan to blow up twelve airliners simultaneously over the Pacific was discovered at the last moment, Clinton thought no response was necessary. When more than 300 people were killed in the bombings of two American embassies in 1998, Clinton finally reacted by attacking a pharmaceutical plant in Sudan–but only, to all appearances, to distract attention from Monica Lewinsky’s grand jury appearance the same day. When a bomber was discovered en route to Los Angeles in 1999, intending to blow up that airport on the eve of the millennium, Clinton was unconcerned. When the USS Cole was attacked in Yemen early in 2000 and seventeen sailors murdered, Clinton vowed retribution in the form of a military reprisal, but never got around to doing anything before leaving office. And, of course, most notoriously, Clinton had at least two opportunities to kill or capture Osama bin Laden, but passed on them because he wasn’t sure the lawyers would approve.
This pathetic record was well known to every American who was acquainted with current events as of September 11, 2001. But–and here is the point–so what? That was then, this is now. The attacks happened, and we are at war. Or, rather, we have been at war for a long time, and now we know it. In the aftermath of the attacks, it would have been easy for President Bush to point the finger of blame at the Clinton administration. But, to his credit, he never did. There is only one group responsible for the attacks–the terrorists themselves. President Bush has never sought to gain political advantage by blaming the Clinton administration’s incompetence for the attacks.
So, on to the next question: What kind of President Will Hillary Clinton make? As Hillary well knows, now that she’s a candidate, the public is free to scrutinize her public record. And any discussion of Hillary Clinton’s public record begins and ends with her past crimes and corrupt behavior. For example:

Sworn testimony in federal court alleged Hillary Clinton devised a scheme to sell public, taxpayer-financed trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election campaign — part of the scandal known as “Chinagate.” Hillary Clinton personally orchestrated media campaigns to slander the women who had allegedly been sexually and otherwise abused by her husband.

Hillary Clinton lied to a grand jury about her role in ordering the firing of several long-time employees of the White House Travel Office, in order to reward two longtime Hollywood pals with lucrative White House travel business. And let’s not forget the former bar bouncer she is said to have hired who took all those Republican FBI files. Hillary Clinton’s fundraising operation failed to properly disclose more than $2 million in contributions to her New York Senate 2000 campaign, leading to the federal criminal indictment of her top fundraiser (which resulted in acquittal) and a $35,000 fine from the Federal Election Commission.

As Hillary steamrolls towards the White House, the American people have a right to know: Will she actively undermine the integrity of the office of the presidency, just as she disgraced the office of the first lady? Will she play loose with the law as president, just as she did as a Senate candidate? Will she again surround herself with the same corrupt members of the Clinton gang that took the White House to new ethical lows in the 1990s? (Hillary’s candidacy certainly won’t be the only vehicle for calling attention
To the issue of public corruption. Indeed, Americans For Honest Government does not endorse nor oppose candidates for public office. We call ethical transgressions as we see them, no matter the person or the party. In this regard, some of her potential opponents, such as Senators Barack Obama and John McCain have an ethical skeleton or two in their closets as well.)

You wanna see something interesting read the cryptic note sheriff Joe says at the end of his speach. I am wondering what he is getting at here.
