If the Mexican government pursues this and Bush is seen to be "neutral", this could cost him heavily in the Southwest.
Heh, gonna sue Arizona in US courts?
Hey Arizona: Insist on a Jury trial.
"Immigration inspectors ignored Mexicans coming into the southwestern United States during the 1900s and 1910s to work in railroad construction, mining, and agriculture.
"The Immigration Bureau did not seriously consider Mexican immigration within its purview, but rather as something that was "regulated by labor market demands in [the southwestern] border states."
" The Bureau also described the Southwest as the "natural habitat" of Mexicans, acknowledging, albeit strangely, Mexicans' claims of belonging in an area that had once been part of Mexico.
"The Immigration Act of 1917 doubled the head tax and imposed a literacy test, erecting the first barriers to entry. But unlawful entry was limited, as the Labor Department exempted Mexicans from the requirements during the war.
" It was not until 1919 that Mexicans entering the United States were required to apply for admission at lawfully designated ports of entry.35
How many divisions does he command?
I don't think that Bush & Co. really realize the outrage at what is taking place on the border. But they will. Oh yes indeedy, they will.
Wake up Mr. Bush...this issue cannot be kept under raps much longer...stand up and be counted...what is the matter with you???
I wonder if this is just posturing by Derbez since no legal challenge have actually been made. Can a Mexican government actually make legal challenges in US courts?
