Did you know that Mexico’s tolerance for “undocumented” immigrants is zero?
Shortly after Gov. Jan Brewer signed SB1070, President Felipe Calderon arrogantly and hypocritically denounced Arizona for its “violation of human rights.” He promised to use all means at his disposal to defend Mexican nationals against the law!
Is it possible that President Calderon is unfamiliar with his own country’s laws?
“Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.
“The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate Mexican law, are not “physically or mentally healthy” or lack the “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. “
There is a reason why Mexico doesn’t tolerate those who are detrimental to “economic or national interests.”
In Arizona, according to a report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), Arizona taxpayers spend more than $2 billion a year on education and health care for illegal immigrants and their children.
