  • Mexico Organizing May Day Marches In U.S.

    03/20/2008 2:42:26 PM PDT · by PreviouslyA-Lurker · 90 replies · 837+ views
    Led by Mexico’s government, illegal immigrants across the nation are planning disruptive May Day marches demanding that the U.S. government halt immigration raids and that Congress pass laws to legalize them. Hundreds of thousands of rowdy illegal aliens flooded the streets of major cities last year demanding amnesty and other rights, while threatening to shut down streets and launch economic boycotts. They burned U.S. flags and wielded racist, anti-American signs as they chanted for “derechos” (rights) in Spanish. Although many local groups helped promote those marches, they were mainly organized by an umbrella group called National Mobilization to Support Immigrant...

    The USCCB Committee on Migration sent a delegation to the U.S./Mexico border region to study the plight of unaccompanied minors and human trafficking victims. The ever-growing problems with these populations are some of the gravest and many times most overlooked symptoms of the broken and out-dated immigration system currently employed by the United States. The delegation met with a broad cross-section of agencies and individuals involved with or knowledgeable of these populations to gain critical insights and to understand their needs. The delegation also met with Church officials, government officials, community-based organization, and other with important perspectives. Programs established to...

    The Mexican government hopes it has found a way to tackle its economic and immigration crises with a program to link its deported citizens with jobs in cities on the Mexican side of the border. The pilot project, dubbed Repatriados Desalentados, or Despondent Deportees, will seek to match migrants who fail in an attempt to cross the U.S.-Mexico border with employers willing to give them jobs or paid training in Mexico. It will begin next month in Piedras Negras, across the Rio Grande from Eagle Pass, and later incorporate the cities of Reynosa, Nuevo Laredo, Ciudad Juarez and Nogales, Mexican...

    The Mexican government has never succeeded in anything except promoting Cantinflas and starving its citizens, so what makes people think this new year will be any different? Consider its latest solution to relieve Mexico’s Third World conditions: getting Mexicans the hell out of Mexico. In late December, it began printing copies of Guía del Migrante Mexicano (Guide for the Mexican Immigrant), a 34-page color booklet that advises Mexicans thinking of getting the hell out of their country on the best ways to do it.

    AUSTIN -- Fed up with diplomatic efforts to enforce a 60-year-old water treaty, a group of Rio Grande Valley irrigators and farmers announced Friday that they are seeking up to $500 million in damages from the Mexican government. Seventeen irrigation districts, a water supply company and 29 individual farmers sent notice to Mexican officials of their claim under the North American Free Trade Agreement, signed by the United States, Canada and Mexico. It took effect in 1994. "We want to be a good neighbor to those people. It's hard to do when you're losing money," said Hidalgo County citrus farmer...

    ASSOCIATED PRESS 9:22 a.m. April 23, 2004 MEXICO CITY – The U.S. Treasury Department has suspended cooperation with the Mexican government on financial investigations, a move that could potentially affect drug, money laundering and terrorism financing investigations. The U.S. Embassy said the Treasury Department sent a letter to the Mexican government saying that, because confidential U.S. information was leaked to the public during a political scandal here, it would no longer cooperate in cross-border investigations. The letter said the suspension of cooperation, which began Thursday, would be in affect until there are "guarantees that all delicate information will be protected."...

Jimenez, the head of the mayor's office of immigrant affairs, seems to be taking the matter in stride. When a police officer informed her of the misdemeanor assault charge during a protest at Harris County Republican Party headquarters Oct. 27, she responded: "Great! We couldn't have planned it better than this." Jimenez is accused of shoving a box of protest letters into...

We've got to build a cast of characters on a piece of paper so that we better understand what happened on January 9th following the crash of a pick up truck loaded with illegals fleeing U.S. Border Patrol and (California Highway Patrol) officers. Two women dead at the scene. As related...

    They'll represent legal and illegal U.S. immigrants By Tim Steller ARIZONA DAILY STAR Two local attorneys will form part of a 100-member council created by Mexico's government to represent Mexicans living in the United States. Isabel Garcia and Jose Lerma will be among the council members, all of whom are U.S. residents. Their main duty: to advise the Mexican government on the needs of its approximately 9.5 million native sons and daughters in this country. The council's formation raises a broader question underlying the faltering U.S.-Mexican negotiations over immigration: Who should represent the estimated 4.5 million Mexican-born residents of the...
