Michelle Malkin has a great column on how Mexico treats its immigrants. Baldman will list Malkin's points followed by his own comments in italics:
The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” Sounds like Hitler.
If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. So Mexico bars: poor people, sick people, crazy people as well as protesters and criminals. Getting into Mexico is harder than getting into Harvard.
Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care. Can we pass this law in America....please?
Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Where is Amnesty International when you need them?
Law enforcement officials at all levels — by national mandate — must cooperate to enforce immigration laws, including illegal alien arrests and deportations. The Mexican military is also required to assist in immigration enforcement operations. So that is where Arizona got it from!
