    What you don't think a country that blasts Arizona's anti-illegal immigration law and tolerates millions of their citizens invading the US would be a bastion for illegals in their own country?

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I don't know their policies. I know they used to be quite strict and wouldn't allow non-citizens to own property. Not sure their policies now.

    I voted we should not.

    We as US citizens are better than that.

    Lead by example, and don't sink to your rivals level.

    Mexico has a single, streamlined law that ensures that foreign visitors and immigrants are:

    in the country legally;
    have the means to sustain themselves economically;
    not destined to be burdens on society;
    of economic and social benefit to society;
    of good character and have no criminal records; and
    contributors to the general well-being of the nation.

    The law also ensures that:

    immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
    foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
    foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
    foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
    foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
    those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison.

    Remember.... Arizona's new law is racist, discriminatory, and doesn't reflect an enlightened society.... at least that's what Mexico's President says.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Mexico is a racist country where the underclass consists predominantly of people with a great deal of native blood. The ruling class likes to siphon this problematic excess population off on the U.S. rather than make their society more just to all people.

    Let me just stop you right there. The people immigrating to the United States from Mexico are NOT a "problematic excess population." They tend to be MORE motivated than the average person, since they took the initiative to come here in the first place in search of a better life. Or as someone put it in an article I read a couple weeks ago (unfortunately I don't remember the writer), "It takes a certain amount of get-up-and-go to actually get up and go."

    Why do they come here to a racist nation like the USA. And why do they work so hard at not getting caught and deported. After all the United states is full of mexican hating bigots, Has nothing to do with the rule of law right?

    Yes the same exact thing
    Only some of their laws
    We should not treat illegals the same way Mexico does
    maybe/I do not know/other




    FOXNews.com - Obama, Calderon Blast Arizona Immigration Law During White House Visit

    President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory.
    I voted "no," but only because I know that not every illegal immigrant comes from Mexico. Off the top of my head, there are illegal immigrants who come in from China smuggled in cargo containers brought over on cargo ships. Once they come over, they are used in sweatshops or brothels as indentured servants to pay off the price of their trip over here. Naturally, few ever do.

    So no, I don't see why the U.S. should deal with illegal immigrants from any country the same way Mexico treats it's illegal immigrants.
