Mexican President Threatens to Sue if Americans Mistreat Illegal Immigrants. To Vicente Fox, I say "Hypocrite!" Story dated 24 March 2005
As I have said in the past, Mexico, though willing to encourage lawlessness on the U.S. border, is not timid when it comes to employing extreme measures (that making the alleged Abu Ghraib abuses seem like a day at the spa) to deal with their own illegal immigrants.
"The State Department says that the Mexican government, angry that a thousand American volunteers will begin an Arizona border vigil next month, consistently violates the rights of illegal immigrants crossing its southern border into Mexico. [However,] [m]any of the illegals in Mexico, who emigrate from Central and South America, complain of "double dangers" of extortion by Mexican authorities and robbery and killings by organized gangs. The State Department's Human Rights Practices report, released only last month, cites abuses at all levels of the Mexican government, and charges that Mexican police and immigration officials not only violate the rights of illegal immigrants, but traffic in illegal aliens. Although Mexico demands that its citizens' rights be protected when they illegally enter the United States, immigrants who cross illegally into Mexico "are often ripped off six ways until sundown," says George Grayson, a professor at the College of William & Mary and a fellow at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). Mr. Grayson, who wrote a report for the center on Mexico's abuses of aliens, says "very little" is being done by Mexico to protect the welfare of the Central Americans and the others who cross into Mexico. Mexican President Vicente Fox said last week that his government will sue in U.S. or international courts if the volunteers -- part of the Minuteman Project, which is designed to protest the Bush administration's lax immigration policies -- break the law."
Well, that's just peachy, isn't it? And I now say unto Vicente Fox and the so-called government of Mexico: "Now you make the outward part of your government appear clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness. Hypocrytes!" _____________________________________________
