Hold Mexico Accountable!
By: John Lillpop
Dear Senators Boxer and Feinstein:
Immigration reform has failed, at least partially, because the United States has made no attempt whatsoever to hold Mexico accountable.
That was true in 1986, and is true in 2007 with the amnesty legislation currently being considered.
Lest we forget, most of the illegal aliens granted amnesty in 1986, as well as the 12-30 million who have invaded since, came from Mexico.
Because of ineptness, or a deliberate conspiracy to dump its problems on the backs of U.S. taxpayers, or both, the Mexican government has failed to prevent illegal crossing into America.
According to a report produced by the World Bank titled “Democratic Governance in Mexico: Beyond the Capture of the State and Social Polarization,” a majority of the identifiable problems in Mexico are directly related to corruption.
Before further action is taken with respect to reform, congress and our president should consider reducing or eliminating all foreign aid and imposing severe economic sanctions until Mexico acts responsibly.
American taxpayers have been forced to fund Mexico’s inept and corrupt government long enough.
Time for Mexico to solve Mexico’s problems, rather than exporting those problems north!
Please support no legislation that grants amnesty to invading criminals and which fails to hold Mexico responsible for its role in aiding and abetting those criminals.
