Mexico Works to Prevent Illegal Immigration--Into Mexico!
"Mexico to use biochip to control illegal immigration," screamed the headline at earthtimes.org. That seemed like another terrific reason to break out the bubbly a bit early. As if I needed any excuse to imbibe early and often.
Without reading the small print, one could be lulled into assuming that our third-world neighbors were finally getting the message: Illegal aliens from Mexico are most unwelcome in America!
Yahoo! would be an understatement of the reaction from these quarters should Mexico treat America like the world's sole superpower instead of a combination garbage dumpsite and day care center for illiterate peasants.
But, alas, the small print put the cork back in the champagne, for a couple of days anyway.
Turns out the aggressive program for dealing with illegal aliens pertains to foreigners entering Mexico through its southern border. You know, the untouchables from Guatemala that Mexican authorities have zero tolerance for.
That means that nothing has changed with regard to Mexico and its citizen’s intent on leaving Mexico to invade America. The Mexican government continues to hand out Map Quest maps and detailed instructions on how to invade Arizona.
In Spanish, of course.
According to the referenced Earthtime article, in 2006 the Mexican government nabbed 200,000 people trying to invade Mexico.
And how did Mexico handle those 200,000 invaders? Deport them back to Guatemala? Send them to prison to work on chain gangs for years on end?
Yahoo! NOT. Under the leadership of brilliant politicians like Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon, the 200,000 were sold Map Quest maps, driven to the Arizona border and forced to continue their northward journey across U.S. borders.
Incidentally, these are the same dunderhead politicians who threatened to take the U.S. to the United Nations because our government plans to build a border fence on U.S. property, using U.S. treasury!
The really big question for the New Year: Are Mexican officials terminally stupid, terminally arrogant or an ungodly combination of both?
