Fox: Mexico will not permit violations of the human rights of Mexicans who live in the United States
Office of the President of Mexico ^ | June 16, 2004 | Unknown

Posted on 06/17/2004 2:57:13 PM PDT by primeval patriot

The government of Mexico will not permit violations of the human and labor rights of Mexicans living in the United States, said Mexican President Vicente Fox Quesada, stressing that, "we will stand beside every Mexican woman and man in this country, we will defend them against the raids being carried out in the state of California."

He reaffirmed his commitment to continue to support the Mexicans and Mexican Americans who live and work with dignity and productivity, because they, he said, make a great contribution to the United States economy. "They are loyal, and respectful of this society and this country that has received them."

On his first working day in the United States, Mr. Fox made important announcements for the Mexican community living in various places in this country.

These include the scale of investments made in Mexican consulates in the United States and reinvestment in places of origin of income from fees for the issue of consular matriculation cards or other services provided.

In addition, he told Mexicans living in the United States that, "we have not reduced our expectations and our struggle to finally reach an immigration agreement beneficial to the communities of both countries and so that we -through it, in an orderly manner, in an effective manner- can drive the development of our two countries more and more."

Mr. Fox acknowledged that it has still not been possible to crystallize that goal, "but I assure you that we continue to struggle every day with the same purpose and that we are trying, every day, to resolve each of the demands that you have put forward."

Evidence of that, he said, is the fact that the consular matriculation card is now broadly accepted in many states and now is not only useful as an identity document, but to carry out other operations.

Speaking before the Mexican community gathered in the new facilities of the Mexican consulate in this city, the federal executive announced that the governments of Mexico and the United States are working to unify criteria in the standardization of their Social Security Systems.

This system, he explained, will enable a person from Mexico or from this country to make savings, a retirement and pension plan through a single account. "Working here or working there will count just the same, there will be equal access to the same rights, in health, in retirements, in pensions, in housing, and in savings".

He informed that the Mexican consulate in Chicago has already opened more than 50 community plazas, associated with the local government, which provide educational services ranging from primary and secondary education through to diplomas and university degrees.

He also highlighted the extension of the Three for One Program, "by way of which members or groups in the Mexican community who want to invest in their community, for every dollar they send there, another two dollars are added: one by the federal government and one by the state and municipal governments."

"That saving, that investment can be used for basic infrastructure in the community, in their community; or it can be used for production projects, your own enterprises, that will have that support of two additional dollars for each dollar."

At the meeting, the chief of the federal executive acknowledged that there have been budgetary shortages and that there is greater demand for this program than what is available with the budget, " but we have been growing it and by next year we are going to continue to increase this amount greatly, to be able to carry on working as a team."

He announced that in the city of Chicago the services of a community liaison center will be provided, " through which we want to have a greater closeness. In that center we want to permanently offer consular protection, financial education, preventive health services, and other rights and other programs."

In the morning, President Vicente Fox held a meeting with Don Michael Randel, the president of the University of Chicago, at which he highlighted this educational institution's interest in research into and the history of Mexico.

He acknowledged Dr. Friedrich Katz for his research into Mexico. In his remarks he said that, "he has also followed closely the delicate process of transition that my country is undergoing today; our struggles to eliminate traces of authoritarianism; to consolidate an efficient democracy; to overcome poverty and discrimination, and to provide all Mexicans with better opportunities in health care, education, employment, justice, and well-being."

President Fox's agenda also included meetings with the mayor of the city of Chicago, Richard M. Daley, with editorial advisors of various Chicago media, and with the president of Whirlpool, Jeff Fetting.

President Fox and his wife, Marta Sahagún de Fox, were honored with a dinner given by members of the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce.

What would happen if a group of American businessmen went to Mexico inorder to create mexican businesses? I've often wondered if the right group of people couldn't go into a country like Mexico and make a fortune creating business first for Mexico then for export. Of course I am excluding the illegal drug trade. I'm invisioning something like Deming and others in post WWII Japan. Once Mexico has a well paid job base the rest would fall into place.

hummmm! Is he an advocate of the Mexican document that advocates the taking back of California and Texas? He sounds like HE is the President of the Mexicans in the United States. This is outragous.

If he is so concerned about THEIR welfare, why are they up here trying to make money?

1. I've never really seen proof that they make a net contribution to our economy. They make a financial contribution to certain busnesses who want cheap labor, but the average taxpayer and the state and federal governments are at a definite net loss.

2. Precisely when did we "receive" them?

Well, Ya Know, if Vicente Fox and his fellow Elite would improve the economy of Mexico, he would not have worry about his countrymen-and women--fleeing to California.
What if they went to Saudi Arabia--is he going to order Prince Saud to uphold the civil rights of Mexicans there?

Maybe we should urge Fox to try to do just what he threatens. A Mexican invasion--military invasion, I mean--as ridiculous as it sounds, might be the one thing which would force the politicians inside the Beltway to respond realistically to what is going on "peacefully" over our Southern border.

No issue is more critical to the future of the United States. Yet no issue is more clearly being ignored by this year's crop of Federal Office seekers. This, it appears, is going to turn out to be one more Alice In Wonderland level farce in the neglected affairs of the American people. Mexico trying to interfere in what law enforcement we still have, would certainly cap it off in an appropriate manner.

This will not end well, Mr. Fox, one way or another, and President Fox better hope it is the US winning, because the reverse will be worse.

Yippeeee!

Yea, right! Now American children don't need to know about American history, they can replace that with rich Mexican history (how to sink the country)

All SSS in the world should be standardized to Mexican system.

Viva el presidente Fox and his chickens, please come and save us from this capitalistic mess so we can go and work in Mexico in the labor exchange (camps for republicans) and better tomorrow building program. Viva Ivan Fricken sKerry, so he can lead us to shining path towards victory of the proletariat!!!

Jus' vote the ba$tards out to deep oblivion!!!!

As though this egomaniac from a pissant place we'd all be better off without has anything to threaten us with! I say we slam the door on all illegals and make it a crime to send any cash transfers south of the border. We'll see how long that mustachioed windbag lasts with no money from USA to prop up that third-world flop of a country.

I don't see raids of illegals being the issue here.

If he wants protection from America of his citizens, then I would suggest they fill out the proper permission slips to enter this country, to pay taxes and then join Mr. Fox back home in their own little piece of heaven where they belong when that job is done and permission to be here has expired.

Threatening to invade?

The invasion has been going on for several years. 10 million of them are already here, just unaccounted for.

Mexico's biggest export is illegal aliens. Mexico's biggest import is money from those illegals who are in the US.

Illegals (being in the US) is big business for Fox and Mexico.

Why does no one in the public/media put Fox on the spot and ask him,

"Why are more than a million people per year being driven to risk their lives and their children's lives to cross a burning dessert to get out of Mexico? Do you think your $5 million / year salary is justified?"

My question is this: what's he going to do if he decides we aren't treating his escapees (our illegals) right? Is he going to invade us?

Crap!! There goes tonight's sleep. The laughter thinking about Mexico invading is going to keep me up all night.

Nah, this is common policy for communists, socialist-fascists, and totalitarians everywhere. History is replete with examples: Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Mao's China, Castro's Cuba, Mugabe's Zimbabwe, etc.
