Tancredo to Pres. Fox: Mind Your Own Business Congressional Desk
By Congressional Desk December 21, 2005 Congressman Ridicules Mexicos President for Leveling Threats against U.S. for Immigration Policy
WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) condemned Mexicos 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 peoplehow dare he butt into our domestic policies, said Tancredo. I, myself, have a bit of advice for Fox: its not becoming of a member of the international community to lob vague threats at ones neighbor. No amigo of the U.S. threatens our sovereignty, and no good neighbor would entangle itself in our domestic politics.
Tancredo continued, Foxs comments are symptomatic of the disordered relationship between our two countries. Mexico has become addicted to the remittances that Mexicansboth legal and illegalsend 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 Mexicos 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 wouldnt 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. Im disturbed but not surprised.
Tancredo is being nice. Being not so nice, my response would contain some cuss words.
ha ha...coma mierda & muera, vicente.
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.
Yo, Seenyor Fox. Why do so many of your constituents want to leave your stinkhole of a country?
Mexico's inflated opinion of its abilities is exceeded only by its incurable envy.
Oh wait a minute, for you they're one in the same.
Nice job Tancredo. Way to tell em paisan.
What's the status of this bill? Could it actually make it through the lame a$$ Senate? It's high time something gets done.
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.
If he would run for President I wouldn't have to sit out the next election.
President Fox does not think a security border passes the global test.
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.
Or, in words he would understand, "tenga mi cerveza."
Doesn't that sound fair?
Touche! At least one elected official of the federal govt has some cojones. Did ya hear that Mister President?
