Mexico Building Own Wall
National Examiner ^ | September 19, 2010 | Dave Gibson

Posted on 09/21/2010 9:10:51 AM PDT by NorwegianViking

The Inter-Press Sevice (IPS) is reporting that the head administrator of the Mexican Superintendency of Tax Administration, Raul Diaz, has confirmed that his government is building a wall in the state of Chiapas, along the Mexican/Guatemalan border.

The official reason is to stop contraband from coming into Mexico, but as Diaz admitted: “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.”

According to Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights, 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year.

Just as Mexican authorities have opposed the construction of a fence by the U.S., along our border with their country, Mexico is now receiving a great deal of criticism from the Guatemalan government.

The executive coordinator of the National Bureau for Migration in Guatemala, Marila de Prince, told a local newspaper: “It is not a correct measure being taken by the Mexican government.”

What Mexico needs is to build a wall that will protect its own citizens from the murderous drug cartels that have recently killed tens of thousands of Mexicans in the WOD.

This manages to be both hilarious and hypocritical. And of course the Guatemalans are complaining to high heaven.

LOL. This may well be the best post on illegal immigration in the United States put up this year.

The irony is wasted, of course, on Obama and Napolitano. And slow Joe Biden would no doubt be quoting Arthur Spooner: “I thought irony meant it is composed completely of iron.”

SARCASM /S ALERT

Bastuhrds!

How can they deny the Human Right to travel or migrate?

This is an insult to the dispossessed and stateless humans.

Why are they making it a crime to be human?

How can they make it harder for migrants to reach their new homeland?

Mexico is continuing their campaign to repress the indigenous peoples of Central and South America.

They are global citizens and Mexico should not be allowed to continue hurting people.

SARCASM /S

Guatemalan wildlife will be unable to cross into Mexico to breed and return to their homes!
Every spring and fall the Guatemalan three-toed, ring-necked, sap-sucking howler sloth slowly makes its way ...
this isn’t really going anywhere, is it?

iirc W loaned Mexico considerable cash and donated trucks and choppers for the Mexico-Guatemala wall to control illegal immigration. Into Mexico.

Arizona should file a lawsuit.
If for no other reason than to highlight Mexico’s hypocrisy.

Agreed, it will help us.
I would think most of those 500k are trying to get to the US. It is a lot cheaper for us to let Mexico build the fence than for us to hire another 1000 border agents.

Guatemala obviously doesn’t supply Mexico with cheap labor and hydrocarbons.

Perfect. Then Arizona should report Mexico to the U.N. Human Rights Commission.

Humm... This means that Mexico will allow *THEIR* people an exit out of the country, but (maybe) deny them a return?

And the ‘denial of return’ could also be their worst desirables?

I do not trust these people one single bit...

What do we have to do to get Mexico to build a wall on their northern boundary?
