The Red Cross, working in Mexico, has protested the Mexican governments’ open support of police intimidation and bribery schemes targeting illegal aliens for years. Did you know that Mexico has some of the toughest immigration laws in effect to keep people from entering Mexico? Do you think it would be racist if we decided to have our laws match Mexican immigration law?

You see, their law states: “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of 300 to 5,000 pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” Did you know it is the law in Mexico that all police are responsible to check for illegal immigration status? According to Amnesty International, “nearly 10,000 (immigrants) were abducted over six months and almost half of interviewed victims saying that (Mexican) public officials were involved”.

So can someone explain the president of Mexico’s outrage about the new immigration law in Arizona while his government stands by and allows an estimated six out of 10 migrant women and girls to experience some form of sexual violence while passing through his country? Mexican President Felipe Calderon is not happy about Arizona’s decision to enforce the immigration laws of the United States. Calderon says the law will lead to “intolerance, hate, discrimination and abuse in law enforcement.”

“My government cannot and will not remain indifferent when these kinds of policies go against human rights,” he said.

Felipe Calderon, leader of the totalitarian, narco-terrorist country of Mexico, openly supports the use of all law enforcement and military forces to find and arrest illegal immigrants in Mexico.

According to Amnesty International: “Public officials turn a blind eye, or even play an active part in kidnappings, rapes and murders.” Did you know that as an American you have no rights in Mexico? You’re banned from interfering in Mexican politics under penalty of jail or deportation. Don’t even think of going to Mexico to protest their treatment of illegal aliens, you will end up in jail or be part of the six out of 10 statistic.

Where is the outrage from President Obama against the evil and abusive government of Mexico towards all Americans? Does President Obama believe it’s acceptable to exploit Latino immigrants to support big business? What would President Calderon say if we adopted the same laws he enforces?

So what does the “evil” Arizona law actually say? In short, the law requires that Arizona state employees simply comply with federal law. Arizona SB1070 “requires officials and agencies of the state and political subdivisions to fully comply with and assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws.” They updated the law to state immigration-status questions would follow a law enforcement officer’s stopping, detaining or arresting a person while enforcing another law. The earlier law had referred to a “contact” with police, which lawsuits asserted was too vague.

Choosing to not enforce the immigration laws hides the much more sinister and unintended consequence of supporting slavery in our country. People living in the United States illegally have become the new slave class. Why are we exploiting impoverished Latinos? When slavery was legal in the United States, the slaves were considered property, and had a value the owner wished to protect. No one is protecting the illegal workers. They live in the gray areas of the law. These people don’t even know if they’ll get paid for their hard days of work. They’re exposed to hazardous materials and dangerous working conditions because their employers have no responsibility to illegals. All forms of physical, mental, sexual and financial abuse are a part of the daily life of undocumented workers.

Do you truly care about these people? Is cheap slave labor really what’s important to you? Are you empowering the slave trade by purchasing their products and letting them operate illegally? How about you help the next slave laborer you meet get her green card, so she may work here legally and earn a fair wage? Are you protesting the new law in order to keep them illegal and enslaved, while self-righteously calling the other side racist? The Arizona law would be irrelevant if we found a way to deal with the corrupt narco-terrorist states south of the border. Imagine how desperately deserving of a better life one must be to illegally enter Mexico?

The real problem is why these people will choose a life of slavery over staying in their country. The answer is simple. The U.S. supports the corrupt narco-terrorist government of Mexico to force these people to flee to the United States. I believe if we really want to solve this issue once and for all, we should invade Mexico and make them the 51st state. It makes more sense than invading Afghanistan. We like the Mexican people more than the Afghanis and, based on the number of Mexicans in Santa Monica, they like us too. If you doubt it would be good for Mexico, just compare Tijuana and San Diego. If you question this would be good for America, imagine the real estate and construction boom! Lets give free elections and a better life to the people of Mexico, who are fleeing the narco-terrorists and a corrupt government for a life of slavery in the U.S.
