The U.S. border state leading the battle against illegal immigration with unprecedented tough laws has received complaints from Mexicos government that too many Mexicans have been repatriated and the country is overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools.
Fed up with the devastating effect of illegal immigration, Arizona has enacted the nations toughest laws to curb the problem and evidently its working. State legislators have passed laws barring illegal immigrants from receiving government services, posting bail for serious crimes and winning punitive damages in lawsuits. This year a new law makes it illegal for businesses to hire undocumented workers and those that do can be shut down.
The state legislator who sponsored the work bill, Representative Russell Pearce, says the laws undeniably positive effects include smaller class sizes, shorter emergency room waits and an overall huge savings to taxpayers. The Republican congressman drafted the bill because studies revealed that illegal immigration cost Arizona taxpayers over $2 billion annually, not including the toll of crime and destruction.
It turns out that enough illegal immigrants have either fled the U.S. or been deported that officials in the Mexican state of Sonora, which shares an extensive border with Arizona, have complained that too many of their fellow countrymen have returned. They miss the remittances sent from the U.S. as well as smaller class sizes in local schools.
Mexican government officials knew Arizonas tough employment verification law would become their worst nightmare, which explains why they tried blocking it. Earlier this year a delegation of nine legislators from Sonora toured Tucson and held a news conference to say that their beloved state cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools resulting from illegal Mexican workers returning home.
One baffled Mexican legislator, Leticia Amparano Gamez, asked in Spanish how can they pass a law like this? She went on to explain that Mexico is not prepared for the tremendous problems it will face as more and more Mexicans working in Arizona and sending money to their families return to hometowns in Sonora without jobs. Another member of the Mexican delegation, Representative Florencio Diaz Armenta, asked what do we do with the repatriated?
And the problem for us is?
Oh my gosh, citizens living in their country of citizenry.. oh the humanity!
This is the whole idea, isn’t it?
Mexico is dirty, corrupt, and poverty filled. IMHO, the reason for this is anyone with any ambition clears out for the US where they know if they work hard they can have a better life.
Maybe if the best weren’t hopping over the US, the Mexicans would have to fix their own country.
If only they could find someone who can build houses cheaply. Or maybe they just need to fit a couple dozen extra people per house.
“the country is overwhelmed with demands for housing, jobs and schools”
Welcome to our world you morons. Now send them home in greater numbers.
And I might add, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
But, let me illiterate by saying, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cry me a river
Maybe they should build a fence.
Damn! I hate it when Mexicans have to stay in their own country. The WSJ on Wednesday had a front page article with the headline “Crossings by Migrants Slow as Job Picture Dims”.
Good. Now find a job in your own country and stop costing us U.S. taxpayers money in schools, hospitals and all the social services illegals STEAL from us illegally.
Oh, this is rich! Why, whatever will they do?
Mexicans don’t want Mexicans immigrating to Mexico from the US. Imagine that. Must be intolerant racism on their part. And a violation of basic human rights.
Well, hey, Mexico, welcome to our world! We can certainly relate.
Oh, we don't give a rat's about your whining, but we can relate.
We'd like to send all of your illegals back to you.
This is one of them. ROTFLMAO
Welcome to our world Mexico. Just think how far ahead you would be if you had fixed your problems in the first place. These people would have stayed home, and you nation would have been all the better for it.
We could see this coming. Even if AZ hadn’t passed this law, the housing slump and its repercussions would have caused many illegal immigrants to go home just because jobs were drying up.
A HUGE percentage of Mexico’s economy depends upon money sent back to Mexico by Mexicans working in the U.S.
But just remember, those same illegals don’t create ANY kind of stresses or problems for OUR schools, government agencies, hospitals, etc. None, they’re pure asset to our communities. /pick any candidate for president
Well hell, perhaps these new returnees can do the jobs Mexicans don’t want to now.
