Shut Up, Felipe Calderon!

By John Lillpop

As the leader of a nation that cannot, or to be more precise will not, feed, house, educate or provide health care to its citizens, Mexican President Calderon should be devoting all of his time and energy to implementing the economic, social and political changes needed to reform Mexico.

Unfortunately, President Calderon has decided that interfering with the business of the United States is more important than dealing with Mexico's internal problems.

In that respect, Calderon is identical to other recent Mexican leaders who seem incapable of doing much of anything except dumping Mexico's problems on the U.S. side of the border.

Calderon's myopic vision and incredible state of denial were made painfully evident when this troubled man said the following on September 2:

"I want to express again an energetic protest at the unilateral measures taken by the U.S. Congress and government which exacerbate the persecution and abusive treatment of undocumented Mexican workers," Calderon said.

"The Mexican government will continue to insist firmly . . . on the need for an integral immigration reform and the categorical rejection of the building of a wall on our common border," Calderon added, confirming the fact that he is clueless when it comes to American sovereignty and rule of law.*

Several responses to this madness immediately come to mind:

1. They are not "undocumented Mexican workers," Mr. President.

Every one of the 12-30 million illegal aliens currently in America is an invading criminal who has seen fit to willfully ignore America's borders and immigration laws.

They have no legal or moral basis for being here!

2. Yes, the U.S. Congress and government are acting unilaterally to enforce our immigration laws.

Congress and the government are acting because America is a sovereign nation, and a representative republic. As such, our government is required to operate in accordance with the rule of law, even when illegal aliens from Mexico are involved.

The American people do not want illegal aliens from Mexico or any other nation to invade our nation, and we have demanded that our government enforce all existing U.S. laws, including those pertaining to immigration.

It is not necessary, and never will be necessary, for the U.S. government to consult with, or seek consent from, Mexico in order to enforce the law in America.

3. Implementing U.S. laws may indeed result in inconvenience and discomfort for those here illegally.

However, providing convenience and comfort to those here illegally is not the concern of the American people.

American law provides for deportation of illegal aliens in order to protect the interests of those for whom U.S. Immigration laws are intended to protect; namely, American citizens and those here legally.

Deporting Mexicans who are here illegally does not constitute "abuse" or "persecution."

4. As to Mexico firmly insisting on "integral immigration reform" and "categorical rejection of the building of a wall" on the U.S. Mexico border, Mexico has no basis for insisting on anything, firmly or otherwise.

In simple English, Mr. Calderon, we do not give a damn what you or any of the other so-called leaders in the Mexican government have to say.

American immigration law and border security measures are the sole responsibility and authority of the United States and its government.

5. If the Mexican government has any genuine concern for the welfare of Mexican illegal aliens in America, then President Calderon should take immediate steps to prevent Mexican citizens from invading America.

President Calderon should also work with the U.S. to arrange for expeditious deportation of invading criminals back to Mother Mexico where the Mexican government can assume its rightful responsibility.

Finally, let the word go out to President Calderon and the rest of those leading the Mexican government:

The days when Mexico could simply dump her problems on the U.S. side of the border are over! Gone, kaput!

For a change, let the state of Mexico take responsibility for Mexican citizens, and get the freeloading scam artists off the backs of U.S. taxpayers.
