Tancredo to Pres. Fox: Mind Your Own Business

Tancredo to Pres. Fox: Mind Your Own Business Congressional Desk

By Congressional Desk December 21, 2005 Congressman Ridicules Mexico’s President for Leveling Threats against U.S. for Immigration Policy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) condemned Mexico’s President Vicente Fox for his threats against the United States over Congress’ recent actions to secure the border. Tancredo led a coalition of reform advocates in the House of Representatives to pass a bill last week that would, among other things, build a security fence along portions of the U.S.’s southern border, mandate that employers verify the legal status of employees and prevent local governments from harboring illegal aliens. President Fox called the bill “shameful” and his foreign secretary told the Associated Press, “Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall.”

“Which United States citizens voted Vicente Fox into office? Vicente Fox was not elected by the American people—how dare he butt into our domestic policies,” said Tancredo. “I, myself, have a bit of advice for Fox: it’s not becoming of a member of the ‘international community’ to lob vague threats at one’s neighbor. No ‘amigo’ of the U.S. threatens our sovereignty, and no good neighbor would entangle itself in our domestic politics.”

Tancredo continued, “Fox’s comments are symptomatic of the disordered relationship between our two countries. Mexico has become addicted to the remittances that Mexicans—both legal and illegal—send back from the United States. Those remittances represent nearly the greatest source of foreign direct investment into the country. Just like any addict, Mexico will do almost anything to get its next fix.”

“Although I continue to be disturbed by Mexico’s intentional, premeditated circumvention of U.S. immigration laws, I am no longer surprised,” concluded Tancredo. “Fox is a known quantity. His former foreign secretary told a Senate committee that Mexico wouldn’t cooperate with the U.S. unless we allowed an ever-increasing flow of laborers into our country. He established a ministry for Mexicans living in the U.S. His government has produced step-by-step guides for entering the U.S. illegally. And, his military routinely crosses onto U.S. soil, which violates every domestic and international law on the books. I’m disturbed but not surprised.”

Tancredo is being nice. Being not so nice, my response would contain some cuss words.

Indeed. I'll be sending a thank you to him for this It's about damn time someone told Fox and his administration to shut the hell up and keep out of our internal affairs.

[Mexico's] foreign secretary told the Associated Press, “Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall.”

Mexico's inflated opinion of its abilities is exceeded only by its incurable envy.

Fox and his cronies need to be taken down a peg or two. Bush won't do it for reasons he's keeping to himself, so Trancredo's blast at Fox is a breath of fresh air.

As a side bar, I wonder. With the extensive quoting and reporting of Fox's comments on this subject by the MSM will we see the same dissemination and exposure for Tancredo's retort?

But Mexico is 'integrating' with the US, and you notice...it's a one way street. The comparison of Mexico to an addict desperate for his fix is extremely apt.

Mexico has become a virtual parasite that has attached itself to United States! That's why Fox has conniptions at the mere thought that we might burn off the leeches!

Securing the U.S. Border will be one of the two top topics for the upcoming election year .... from federal to state to county to local ... any candidate desiring to secure the vote will have to have a plan as to how they will address border security and illegal aliens.

I think I have the solution. We build our fence/wall to keep out all the people trying to get in from Mexico, and Mexico can do the same on their side of the border to keep out all the Americans trying to find a better life in Mexico.

Doesn't that sound fair?

Even though he does not have a chance in hell of winning a national election, he does force other GOP members to get tough on the issue. Like it or not, he is probably closer to the majority opinion on this issue then the Republican leadership. I am hopeful that Bush is getting the message, however, and will take action.

"If he would run for President I wouldn't have to sit out the next election."

I can definetly understand how you feel, but I think that if you were to decide not to vote for the GOP candidate, it would be best to vote third party, and atleast help get the message across to the conservative leadership that you are unhappy with the direction they are heading. If I were to choose not to vote Republican, which I hope will not be the case because I am pulling for Allen, I would just vote for a conservative third party. The Republican leadership will only get the message when they start losing votes to third party conservatives.

Blahahaha! What are you going to do about it Fox? The wall will be built, and their is nothing you can do about it.

Congress's next move should be to pass laws stopping the flow of illegals sending money to mexico.

I heard him on the radio with someone filling in for Sean Hannity. Tancredo is 'being nice', but he is strong, knowledgeable and presents his case quite effectively. Wouldn't want him to be like Hillary/Teddy/Nancy, would you? :o)

Why bother debating the Quislings? Every word they type is a lie. Their goal is the destruction of American national sovereignty, they just can't be honest and admit it.

Quisling: a synonym for traitor, someone who collaborates with the invaders of his country.

I'm sure that if the internet had been around in 1940, *Norwegians* would have been encouraging Norway to welcome their *German brothers* as liberators.

Same Quislings, different era.


U.S. Constitution Article 4 Section 4:

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government,

and shall protect each of them against Invasion;"


Invasion: \In*va"sion\, n. [L. invasio: cf. F. invasion. See Invade.] [1913 Webster]

1. The act of invading; the act of encroaching upon the rights or possessions of another; encroachment; trespass.

The Republican State Senator in South Carolina (passing a bill to put illegals in jail for 5 years in S.C if they enter the state as illegal citizens) is pretty cool, too. He was on H&C tonight and did a great job of slapping down Alan Colmes; I almost choked on my dinner he had me laughing so hard calling Alan a wimp among other things.

Yes, I know. COEX continuously attacks Tancredo yet has absolutely nothing constructive to say about what he (Tancredo)says.
Does he agree or disagree with Tancredo? If he disagrees, why?
I'm sure he won't say since it would solidify his obvious hate for America and it's citizens.

Mexico has become addicted to the remittances that Mexicans—both legal and illegal—send back from the United States.

The Congressman needs to call the "free traders" out next. They are the ones who set up the system that addicted Mexico to remittances and is destroying our economic sovereignty as well.

I can kind of understand having a soft spot for people sneaking into the country to get out of a hellpit like Mexico. However, I cannot fathom how anyone who cares one iota for his country can disagree with Tancredo's statement and back that tinpot dictator Fox. Just confirms that the open borders lobby is not just the "loyal opposition". The traitors would sell out the US in a moment. And for what? Cheap slave labor...or do they want to destroy the country?
