Mexico Complains Of Too Many Repatriated Mexicans
Judicial Watch ^ | 4-7-08

Posted on 04/09/2008 2:26:25 PM PDT by kingattax

The U.S. border state leading the battle against illegal immigration with unprecedented tough laws has received complaints from Mexico’s 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 nation’s 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 law’s 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 Arizona’s 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?”

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.

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.

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.

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.

They must be learning how to apply Loony Liberal Logic. Whine, complain and blame others while ignoring the fact that you have caused the problem in the first place. Act like you have been wronged and an injustice has been done and before you know it government will repeal their evil rules and take even more of my money to give to you.

Liberals' next step: Pay Mexico for the burden WE have caused. (wanna bet?)

Mexico has tremendous oil reserves, and a ton of mineral resources including silver and gold all over the place. Mexico also has some of the richest billionaires in the world. And Mexico has had a big inflow of money coming in to build plants after NAFTA was passed.

They could damn well afford to pay their own bills if they stopped playing political games, messing around between socialism and capitalism for the elite few.

Instead, they want to export their dysfunctional elements to the US and let us take care of the problem. I don’t know what it is; there’s nothing wrong with Mexicans as such. But their politics have been self-destructive for hundreds of years.

If Mexico is such a craphole that it can't handle them (and it is: it's a corrupt communist kakistocracy), then Mexico needs to clean up its act.

“how can they pass a law like this?”

It's simple: Somebody in the legislature proposes it. Then, a majority of each house of the legislature votes in favour of it. Then the Governor signs it. At this point, it's THE LAW.

Arizona is a Republic; thats how things are done.

Mexico is supposed to be a republic. Instead, Mexico is a corruptocracy with communist tendencies. If Mexico were an honest republic, with rule of law and respect for the legitimate rights of the citizens, Mexico wouldn't have so many problems.

Ha....if all the US states would get tough like AZ, this problem would be over in less than a year. All the arguments about “how are we going to round up all the illegals”...”It’s not possible”...yada yada yada...

In less than one years time, this pathetic argument would be laughable. The Mexican government would probably be putting more border patrol agents on their side to keep the Mexicans from coming back across the border. They will start refusing US shipments of illegals that have been deported.

Half the returnees can build the houses, and the other half can do the landscaping. They just need to meet at the local Casa Depot.
