WASHINGTON -- A group of Mexican senators announced Tuesday they are preparing to meet with state legislators in Georgia and four other states next month, hoping to head off more stringent immigration laws like the one Georgia enacted this year.The senators plan to share information with state lawmakers that shows illegal immigrants generally stay out of trouble and contribute to the economy while they are here.
Sen. Carlos Jimenez Macias, a member of the Mexican Senates Foreign Relations Committee, confirmed those plans Tuesday at a workshop on immigration reform in D.C. at the German Marshall Fund, a nonpartisan public policy institution.

So coddle foriegn pols or listen to your own people? Tough choice there.
If they are such stellar citizens why is the Mexican government working so hard to keep them from returning to Mexico? Hummmmm?
Rather than take care of their own poor and uneducated, corrupt Mexican politicians’ idea of a social welfare policy is to encourage their lowest classes to go North.
Mexico, solve your own frigging employment problems, don’t send them here! We don’t want them!
Maybe they want assylum.
Hmmmphh ... "Senor, you are treating us very badly in your country"
OK ... release every American in your jails and we'll talk.
“The senators plan to share information with state lawmakers that shows illegal immigrants generally stay out of trouble and contribute to the economy while they are here.”
That sounds like a good reason to make legal immigration more available. It doesn’t sound like a good reason to encourage more illegals.
They should tell them to pound sand. If the state legislators meet with mexican senators who would constitute a foreign delegation, then the POS administration could concievably go after them for conducting foreign policy talks which constitutionally is a federal privilege. This is not setting up a sister city or trying to get them to buy more peanuts from Georgia and even that involves the fed.
I hope someone asks these Mexican Pols - “so how exactly do you handle illegal immigrants in Mexico from places like Guatamala and Honduras who are in your country?”
I would just hand the Mexicans a copy of their own immigration laws and say, “You want to see some stringent immigration laws, take a look at these.”
Whenever you think things can't get any more out of control, stuff like this happens.
Tell them to stay home! They are not welcome.
Mexico has a lower unemployment rate than the US. Their problem is they want to get rid of the dark skinned non-Europeans.
Oh, for a dozen state legislators who have the nerve to invite the Mexican senators, and then turn the tables by lecturing them for an hour or so on the shortcomings of their OWN open cesspool of a country — and then post the entire proceedings to Youtube for all to see.
Georgia might want to ask a few questions about how illegal immigrants are treated in Mexico.
Is this from The Onion?
“...illegal immigrants generally stay out of trouble and contribute to the economy while they are here.”
They’re still CRIMINALS if they’ve come here ILLEGALLY!
Laws may not mean anything in Mexico, but the rule of law is still important to some of us here.
"For Macias, the issue is personal. He said he illegally entered the United States when he was 17 to find work and lived for a time in Chicago."
I have several pertinent questions for them:
(1) Where is the honor of Mexico?
(2) How much are you willing to compensate the taxpayers of America for the damages done by your criminals and negligent children to our loved ones and private property??
(3) Why do you expect us to feed your children and grandchildren thru our social programs and medical systems??
(4) How do you feel about the US Congress passing legislation declaring illegal immigrants must register and qualify as economic refugees in order?? -- periodically reporting to immigration control officers;
....And subject to immediate deportation without further hearing upon conviction of any single felony -- or multiple misdemeanors??
(5) What us your opinion concerning the USA asking the United Nations to declare Mexico a failed state?
US citizens need to be able to buy land anywhere in Mexico and eventually take over a Mexican state or two to set up the second Lone Star republic.
So they can work here and send US money back home.
Take a hike, José.
If they are such stellar citizens why is the Mexican government working so hard to keep them from returning to Mexico?
The Mexican government has used immigration to the United States as a revolutionary safety valve for the entire 20th and now the 21st century. The Mexican economy is socialist, meaning it is dysfunctional and will never grow to accommodate the number of people Mexico has. Starving or economically disadvantaged people tend to overthrow oppressive bad governments. By acting as Mexicos safety valve, the United States deprives the Mexican people of any opportunity to change their government and become wealthy like the United States.
The only real jobs in Mexico are for the state owned Power Company, Phone Company, Oil Company or the government. To get one of those coveted jobs you must pay a bribe. Even to get a job at the Power Company fueling trucks and washing them requires a bribe. (I know some Mexican families.)
The Mexican ideal is to have a job in America and commute home to Mexico. Then, they retire on American Social Security and a variety of American social welfare programs. To maintain eligibility, they keep an address in America after retirement to keep up the pretense that theyre living here so they can collect checks. ACORN operatives set them up and tell them how to work the system. An elderly Mexican man (the father of a friend) took me to a huge California apartment complex close to the Baja border. He explained that the reason the parking lot was nearly deserted was that most of the tenants actually lived in Mexico but used these residences to get California welfare. For the cost of a two hour drive four times a month, you can live like a king in Mexico.
Now, the other reason is, the Mexican economy would probably collapse if all that money stopped flowing home to Mexico.
This California welfare fraud is so huge and so obvious that theres no way the California government is unaware of it. California will have to collapse before they can correct the situation.
They’ve got big money...multiple drug cartel’s money, riding on their illegal immigrants here in the state of Georgia, of course they are concerned - this is their hub!
I wish our American Senators were as protective of us as the Mexican Senators are of illegals.
“A group of Mexican senators announced Tuesday they are preparing to meet with state legislators in Georgia and four other states next month, hoping to head off more stringent immigration laws like the one Georgia enacted this year”
Yeh that’ll work. Getting those illegals out of GA is like a miracle. Its already so much better here.
Contrary to what zipperheads like Linda Chavez and Michael Medved say, most Americans (including LEGAL immigrants) strongly oppose this cultural suicide.
I don't hear the likes of Linbaugh, Hannity or Coulter say much about it either.
We’d better keep close track of this delegation. They might just stay.
Partial transcript of the meeting:
GA Assemblyman: "No, Senator, I'm sorry. You'll have to go through all the normal channels to get your green card, too. I can't get it for you, in exchange for that big sack of Mexican currency."
I see the Mexicans didn’t bring up their own draconian illegal alien laws. I also did see an offer to pay for the services their illegals suck out of the system.
Didn’t Massachusetts recently publish that 1/3 of their health budget goes to funding healthcare for illegal aliens?
BLANK the Mexicans. This is really pi$$ing me off.
They should ask a lot of questions about how Mexico treats its immigrants. Do illegals in Mexico get welfare, free schools and free ER visits? Do they get to protest to get more? (it is a felony for foreigners to even attend a political rally in Mexico)
They are just hypocrites.
On the surface it simply appears as if it's about wanting to "do those jobs Americans won't do." What most Americans fail to grasp is the strategic objective: a demographic shift throughout this country so significant over time that the cessation of U.S. territory to Mexico will be inevitable. Look at the increasing radicalization of some of the hispanic population in this country... each year the calls for "reconquista" grow louder.
Does this make any sense? Would our congressmen go to states, provinces or prefectures in other nations and say, don't worry about these millions of Americans violating your immigration laws, they otherwise stay out of trouble and contribute to your economy?
Two responses to these Mexican senators:
1. your unemployment rate is over 3% lower than ours.
2. your economic growth rate was 5.5%, more than twice ours.
Sounds like a good reason for Georgians to stage a little peaceful protest to let them know how we feel...
As soon as you, as a *legal* immigrant, start speaking out against government officials, actions, and /or policies, - the Mexican government has the right to throw you out of the country.
I hope to G*d that these state legislators tell the Mexican Senators to go to mind their own damned business.
lets see, every ILLEGAL in a college or university is taking a seat from a legal resident.
every ILLEGAL recieving government loans or grants is taking money that would go to a legal resident for education.
I hope Georgia lawmakers stand firm. Of couse if they meet with only democrats and the souther poverty law center (see communists) this is all a meaningless pr stunt for MSNBC and CNN world.
give the mexican senators copies of their own illegal alien law.
give the mexican senators copies of the law prohibiting foreigners from owning land in mexico...
univision and telmundo will be droppnig rose petals in front of the mexican senators.
If anyone protests it will protrayed as “racists.”
This will have front page coverage on mexican and spanish language news.
What business is it of these taco crunchers?
Is Mexican a race?
These Mexican senators should focus on fixing their hellhole of a country and quit sticking their noses in our political affairs.
A 43-year-old Juarez woman tried to avoid inspection at a U.S. port of entry Friday by crawling on the pedestrian lane of the Stanton Street Bridge in downtown El Paso, television station KVIA reported.
Customs and Border Protection officers intercepted Herlinda Coronado Magallanes as she was crawling north along the walkway around 6:20 a.m. Friday after another border crosser alerted the officers, KVIA said.
When she was spotted, Magallanes tried to flee back into Mexico, Customs and Border Protection officers said.
Magallanes, who had previously been removed from the United States, was arrested on suspicion of illegal entry and is being held without bond at the El Paso County Jail, KVIA said.
The motorist who alerted CBP should be commended, said Hector Mancha, CBPs El Paso port director said. Community members and law enforcement personnel working closely together can help maintain El Pasos ranking as one of the safest large cities in the U.S.
Another 48 immigration violations were reported over the weekend at ports of entry in El Paso, West Texas and New Mexico, the border agency said in a news release.
Officers stopped 24 intended immigrants, eight imposters, seven people who entered the U.S. without proper examination, six false claims to U.S. citizenship and three counterfeit or altered documents, the release said.
