Mexican Government Increasing Fight Against US Immigration Laws
By: Sher Zieve
In yet another attempt of a foreign government to end US immigration laws and create a no-holds-barred open southern border scenario, the Mexican Senate has â€œruledâ€ that the USA has no right to deport illegal-alien Mexicans from its country. Citing the recent ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) deportation of, at least, two-time-offender illegal alien Elvira Arellano, Mexican Senator Humberto Zazue said: â€œWe cannot remain quiet in view of this injustice and must ask for firm action from our authorities!â€ Firm action from our authorities? What is Zazue advocating? Increased violence from Mexican â€œauthoritiesâ€ at our southern border, perhaps? Is this another step in Mexicoâ€™s plan to take portions of the US as Mexican territories?
Note: It already appears that Mexico has a growing number of the US Border Patrol â€œleadershipâ€ members in their back pockets. As a prime example, West Texas Laredo US Border Patrol Chief Carlos X. Carrillo has firmly decided that protecting the southern border from both illegals and drug smugglers is not the job of the USBP. In no uncertain terms, Carrillo strongly advised Laredo citizens: â€œIâ€™ve said it before and Iâ€™ll say it again. The Border Patrolâ€™s job is not to stop illegal immigrants. The Border Patrolâ€™s job is not to stop narcotics or contraband or narcotics. The Border Patrolâ€™s mission is not to stop criminals!â€ Carrillo goes on to say: â€œThe Border Patrolâ€™s mission is to stop terrorists and terrorist weapons from entering the country.â€ Really? Then tell me, Mr. Carrillo, how do you know a terrorist is a terrorist unless you stop and interrogate those attempting to illegally enter the country? And further, Mr. Carrillo, who rendered the decision that the USBPâ€™s role at the border was not to apprehend illegals and/or drug dealers? Was it your boss? Or, is this simply your personal foreign policy agenda? From Carrilloâ€™s pronouncements, one must assume that illegal crossings of â€œworkersâ€ and drug smuggling gang members run rampant in Laredo.
Carrillo attempted to â€œclarifyâ€ his apparent patent support of open borders for illegalsâ€”from his comments we assume he means only Mexican illegalsâ€”and drug dealers. However, he has neither rescinded nor altered his statements. Letâ€™s take a look at these recent developmentsâ€”shall we? We have a foreign government now virtually demanding that the USA disband its immigration policies and lawsâ€”and allow Mexican nationals to enter the country in one of the biggest free-for-alls in American history. We have the ostensible leadership within the US Border Patrol siding with that foreign governmentâ€™s scheme. And we, also, have our own US government representatives from the Legislative and Executive branches working toward pushing illegal immigration down the throats of We-the-People. Representatives from both sides of the US political aisle have made their open-borders-for-personal-financial-and-power-gains positions known. And both of these branches of government have expressed anger with the American people for their position on illegals that runs contrary to the open-border elected officials! Despite non-partisan uproar directed against the anti-US-sovereignty â€œby whatever means possible leadership bunchâ€ from American liberals, moderates and conservatives, these elected group members have vowed to eventually push their Amnesty for Illegals through. Again, their message is: â€œThe American people be damned! Weâ€™ll find a way to do what we want without their input.â€ And, they areâ€”once againâ€”working diligently on resurrecting the illegalsâ€™ amnesty bill. Another way in which our â€œleadersâ€ bypass We-the-People is the setting up of sanctuary cities. These cities provide tacit as well as real support for illegals and their criminal activities. In contrast, US citizens are given no such latitude. Increasingly, only the legal inhabitants of the United States of America are required to uphold the laws of that country. Illegal aliens and their supporters are under no such dictate or obligation in these escalating lawless cities and towns. Our now discriminatory-against-legal-citizenship practices have developed into the norm, just as our actual laws have become as feckless as our current elected leadership. Isnâ€™t it time to elect those who swear to uphold both our laws and our sovereignty? Isnâ€™t it time to vote those who refuse to do so out of office? Isnâ€™t it time to hold our leaders accountable for their actions or lack thereof? The answer to all of these questions is a resounding â€œYes.â€
The third President of the United States of America Thomas Jefferson said: â€œThe tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.â€ Only We-the-People can decide whether or not this tree needs some severe pruningâ€”and soon.
