Should we conquer Mexico? Column dated 04 February 2005
The author of this column certainly thinks so. I think that author might not be unreasonable in his opinion. On 02 November, the voters in Arizona passed Proposition 200 which requires a person to show proof of U.S. citizenship before receiving public (tax funded) benefits or voting. This would effectively terminate the ability of illegal aliens from voting in elections in Arizona, or receiving public benefits in that state. Good for Arizona. I think all states should adopt that same policy. Mexico does not agree. Their government encourages its poorest citizens to become illegal immigrants into the United States (remember the illustrated guide to illegal immigration they published?). They hate proposition 200 and are seeking to exert their influence to reverse the measure passed by a vote of the people of Arizona. In a radio address last week, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said, "We are seeking all the legal opportunities that exist, first using the legal capacities of the United States itself and ... if that does not work, bringing it to international tribunals." Excuse me? Did I read that right? The Mexican equivalent of our Secretary of State basically said that they were going to use employ every method available to them to reverse a proposition passed by the people of Arizona and valid under the Constitution of these United States? Joseph Farah, the author of this column thinks that this is tantamount to an act of war. Considering that Mexico's encouragement of illegal immigration is not unlike an invasion, Mr. Farah might have a point. So what should we do? Conquer Mexico? Or just stop the problem by putting our National Guard on the border. I prefer the latter. There should be no problem with us merely defending our borders; but then, there should be no problem with us enforcing our laws, but you see how that's working out. _____________________________________________
