(Memo to Mexico: your problems will not be solved by an open border to the United States. Or by a fantasy political union that will never happen.)
Furthermore, Mexico City’s hostile action is another brick on a rather large pile of evidence that Mexico is an Enemy, not a friend of this country and the American people.
Mexico asks court to reject Ariz. immigration law, AP, June 22, 2010Mexican invaders are pests, not ”friends” by any definition. If Mexicans are ”afraid to visit Arizona” then that’s a good thing, since many forget to return home.
Mexico on Tuesday asked a federal court in Arizona to declare the state’s new immigration law unconstitutional, arguing that the country’s own interests and its citizens’ rights are at stake.
Lawyers for Mexico on Tuesday submitted a legal brief in support of one of five lawsuits challenging the law. The law will take effect July 29 unless implementation is blocked by a court.
The law generally requires police investigating another incident or crime to ask people about their immigration status if there’s a ”reasonable suspicion” they’re in the country illegally. It also makes being in Arizona illegally a misdemeanor, and it prohibits seeking day-labor work along the state’s streets.
Citing ”grave concerns,” Mexico said its interest in having predictable, consistent relations with the United States shouldn’t be frustrated by one U.S. state.
Mexico also said it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens’ rights and that the law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, and strain the countries’ work on combatting drug trafficking and related violence.
”Mexican citizens will be afraid to visit Arizona for work or pleasure out of concern that they will be subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention,” the brief said.
Meanwhile, the war against America by Mexican organized crime continues apace and is making steady inroads. The narco-traffickers surely realize that the Obama Presidency is a terrific opportunity for them to expand north, and they are doing so with alacrity. Furthermore, the narco-traffickers are doing the work of the Mexican government – expanding Mexican interests north and pushing the North Americans back. Maybe that’s why Mexico City is not pushing too hard against the narcos (along with all the billions of dollars flowing in to the narco-state).
The head of DHS Janet Napolitano said in April that the US-Mexico border is ”as secure now as it has ever been.” Such is the level of awareness of the current administration. On the other hand, police officers are a little closer to the ground, like Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu who recently described the border area as ”out of control.”
In his newly discovered role of border enforcer, Senator John McCain recently spoke on the floor of the Senate in a colloquy with Senator Kyl to show how a large piece of southern Arizona has become a no-go zone for Americans, indicating that Washington is giving up territory to drug cartels rather than defending US territory within the perimeter. The BLM has posted a sign that warns Americans to avoid an area that amount to about 20 percent of the area of Arizona (according to Sen. Kyl), namely below Interstate 8:
Danger. Public Warning. Travel Not Recommended. Active Drug and Human Smuggling Area. Visitors May Encounter Armed Criminals and Smuggling Vehicles Traveling at High Rates of Speed. Stay Away From Trash, Clothing, Backpacks and Abandoned Vehicles. If You See Suspicious Activity, Do Not Confront. Move Away and Call 911. BLM Encourages Visitors to Use Public Lands North of Interstate 8.The video below of the two Senators in that discussion is 23 minutes long, but is a worthwhile analysis about how the border can be secured using policies that have been proven effective in other sectors (more personnel, additional surveillance, Operation Streamline).
In other territorial invasion news, Mexican organized crime is becoming more comfortably ensconced in America:
Mexican Gangs Maintain Permanent Lookout Bases in Hills of Arizona, Fox News, June 22, 2010If those lookout spots are on public lands, then why aren’t they being used for Special Forces training?
Mexican drug cartels have set up shop on American soil, maintaining lookout bases in strategic locations in the hills of southern Arizona from which their scouts can monitor every move made by law enforcement officials, federal agents tell Fox News.
The scouts are supplied by drivers who bring them food, water, batteries for radios – all the items they need to stay in the wilderness for a long time.
”To say that this area is out of control is an understatement,” said an agent who patrols the area and asked not to be named. ”We (federal border agents), as well as the Pima County Sheriff Office and the Bureau of Land Management, can attest to that.”
Anyway, what does it take for Washington to realize a real invasion is advancing against us? Obama seems to believe his political agenda of rewarding millions of pre-Democrat lawbreakers is more important than defending America’s borders, sovereignty and people. That has to stop.
