Vanity: Kick Mexico in the pocketbook America!
VI / XIII /MMXIV | pansgold

Posted on 06/13/2014 8:39:17 PM PDT by pansgold

It is time to kick Mexico in the pocketbook America!

It is time we refuse buying any and all products made in or exported from Mexico.

I have started looking closely at packaging labels for the point of manufacture.

Until the invasion of America by illegal immigrants stops and the government of Mexico frees Andrew Tahmooressi, Mexico will not see 1 dime from me and my family.

Another possible route would be to call your local favorite Mexican restaurant, tell them you’re not coming back until Mexico stops this treachery, and then don’t go back until she does.

But it would have to be a step taken by thousands and thousands if not millions of Americans.

Yaasir! refusing to go to a local Mexican restaurant will really hurt the Mexican government! The biggest problem these ideas have is that there is just so much damn money wired into to Mexico and countries south of our border every day. By the way I guess we won't boycott goods from Guatemala,Belize, Honduras, Nicaragua, et al is because it's too hard to find products from there, or is it easier to just call them all Mexicans? The only way to really cut income to Mexico and south would be to keep all of their people working here unemployed......... not going to happen.

Most of those kids at the border entering are not from Mexico. They are from mostly central America, such as El Salvador. Why blame the poor people when blame lies with our own politicians?

I blame Obummer, Holder, Bush-43, and Reagan. After president Reagan granted blanket amnesty, illegals flooded in knowing all would be forgiven again. Bush-43 did nothing much to close the border. Obummer and his side kick are the worst of the bunch.

I will never vote for anyone who is for amnesty in the future. Bush-43 was the biggest disappointment.

Are you assuming that only Mexicans own Mexican Restaurants?

The food they serve comes form local Food distributors, not from Mexico.

Good luck with your new cause Amigo. LOL

Unlike the U.S. you won’t get free food stamps, housing, and healthcare. You’ll first be housed in a Mexican jail cell then deported back to the U.S. In a New York second. The Mexicans get it. They know they can’t afford to support illegal immigrants unlike our own stupid government. Of course they aren’t trying to get votes to keep their cronies in power.

We can blame the criminals while we also blame the lawmakers.

We can do both at the same time.

For years I’ve done my best to avoid buying any products made in Mexico or China. If I want to buy something on line and the description says “imported” I always ask what country it comes from.

I am not talking about the parentless children. I am talking about the invasion of illegals entering the U.S. to drain it of it’s services like:

Electricity
Water
Schools
Hospitals
Highways
Gasoline
Heating fuel

Just to name a few.

The immigrants are coming from Central America. Mexico has the same problem we do.

The DEA is is helping the Sinaloa drug cartel, ATF gave them an arsenal of weapons that have killed many Mexicans and some Americans.

With Obama we are more guilty than they are. As consumers of major consumers of drugs, we cause them more problems that they case us.

That said, more drugs are coming in from Canada than Mexico. Canada is still under the radar.

Comments like yours are just DUMB. Our problem is OBAMA. Not Mexico, not Mexicans, not immigrants. We pay taxes for our border to be protected. It is our government that is not doing it’s job. Hating other people only gets Obama of the hook. Disdain for other groups of people is Marxist MO.

our problem is our own corrupt, treasonous, tyrannical government.

They are draining our services and resources because we elect politicians who allow them to do it.

If I live my car key in the ignition and doors unlocked, who is more to blame, me or the thief?

It is the same situation with welfare to US citizens. Our elected politicians are the enablers. I blame them more than the free loaders.

Every load of laundry, dishwasher, flushing toilet, shower or bath uses precious water during a drought. MILLIONS upon MILLIONS of illegals use water that would not be used if they had not broken or law and entered illegally.

Air polution from their cars and trucks, gasoline shortage due to low refinery capacity.

overcrowding of schools and hospitals... yea I guess you’re right.

ILLEGALS don’t drain America of it’s resources.

“Not Mexico, not Mexicans, not immigrants.” Now who’s DUMB?

I wonder if Mexico would flinch if someone publishes a map showing Mexico as about 20 more U.S. States, and just state that our country would invite all Mexicans and double the pay of teachers, doctors, and all needed professions. All would become citizens once their country collapses.

Call it “making lemonade with lemons”. Mexico has a lot of natural resources and nice beaches.

Why do you blame this on Mexico?

The people coming in are from all over south America.

The blame clearly lies with Obama opening the boarder and not enforcing the law and advertising that fact.

Explain to us all how the first act of an illegal is to commit a federal felony crossing our border and why the politicians are to blame for providing Americans with a land of opportunity.

Try blaming the crime on the criminal for a change.

It has always puzzled me that we can embargo travel and trade with Cuba but seem unwilling to use the same tactic on Mexico. If we cut off their trade and tourism dollars, I think they’d see reason quickly.

Mexico has had a United States Marine in jail for 3 months now. For an honest mistake he openly declared to Mexican officials when stopped.

Even if carrying this kind of grudge were a good idea (which I dispute), that might be a genuine American family running that place. You do not have to be born in Mexico to make a good taco.

Crime is an act of opportunity. You will never stop crime so long as there is opportunity. The illegals are simply taking advantage of our open door policy.

I have probably traveled to 50 countries in my life time, 90% of them poorer than USA. Every one of them gives away nothing to illegals. We are the only stupid country who is generous with illegals. If others can protect their borders why can’t we?

Better idea would be to boycott all the big corporations and farming conglomerates that function primarily on illegal Mexican labor. I’ll offer up Tyson Chicken for one. How to find out which other products are predominantly illegal-made, though.

So your answer is to let them starve and when they get hit by a car, let them lay there until they get killed?

America is to blame for being the envy of the rest of the world? That’s why they come here. Opportunity.

Face it, we feed the prisoners in our jails and provide healthcare for them. Why? Are they not also criminals?

Don’t blame America for feeding, sheltering and providing healthcare and an education to the other type of criminals that invade our country.

Tourism boycotts work better than retail, corporation or manufacturing boycotts....because it's more visible and flashily attention-catching.

Last week O'Bloviator announced was going to start a tourism boycott against Mejico, but I don't know when. He needs to get going. His boycott campaign against French products (wine, cheese, etc.) was pretty effective some years back. Not economically, I'm certain, but it sure worked psychologically on Froggie public opinion.

Again, try blaming the criminal for the crime.

If they break the law and come into the U.S maybe your idea is right.

Let them starve, remain uneducated, and in need of money and medical care.

I’m sure that won’t affect the crime rate at all.

The illegals who cross the southern border could’nt care less about tourism boycott. Actually more will come with increased poverty caused by boycotts.

Only real solution is ELECT PEOPLE WHO WILL CONTROL BORDERS and penalize employers caught hiring illegals. No jobs = Self deport!

I just visited a country far richer than USA. Every 6th citizen is a millionaire. When they find an illegal, they deport them next day. If you enter again, you land in jail. There are no food stamps, no welfare or free health services to illegals. Guess what, they have no problem with illegals.

“control borders”

How? They dig under a fence, climb over a fence, cut through a fence... or just avoid the fence. Perhaps killing them as fast as troops can get the crosshairs on them might work... ya think?

The jails would be filled with illegals and we house them, feed them, provide healthcare for them and pay guards to guard them right after building more prisons. Something like 100K per prisoner per year.

No murder necessary.

Here is a good list posted by someone on FR:

Deport illegal aliens on contact with LE.
Enforce the law vigorously on employers of illegals.
Strong border security. Build the physical fence and use high-tech surveillance.
Eliminate entitlements for illegal aliens.
End the “anchor baby” policy.

You are missing the most important reason to discourage illegals.

Punish employers who hire illegals. The illegals come here for job opportunities as you said. No jobs, no need to come here.

“I blame Obummer, Holder, Bush-43, and Reagan. After president Reagan granted blanket amnesty, illegals flooded in knowing all would be forgiven again”

For a couple of years after the 1986 Reagan amnesty the flood of illegals dried up. That amnesty law had enforcement provisions that would have made the illegal life tough for them. And they thought it was going to be enforced.

It wasn’t until Bush 41 made it obvious that the enforcement part of the law was never going to happen that the flood started again. And of course Clinton and Bush the amnesty-loving son made things even worse.

Your GOP treason lobby at work, guaranteeing that California would became a permanent Democrat stronghold.
