Oh No! The Mexicans are Angry With Us! What Ever Shall We Do? December 21, 2005, 3:02 pm

This story was linked by Drudge the other day, and I can’t believe that no one has fisked it yet, especially since this is one of those stories that is just begging for it.

Well, our government has finally started to get serious about our southern border and in addition to fixing other stupid policies, the legislation calls for extending and building a big wall on our border with Mexico. I figure if the Israelis can use a wall to keep suicide bombers out, we should be able to use a wall to keep illegals out. Well, quelle surprise, but the Mexican government is outraged that we are attempting to secure our own border.

The Mexican government, angered by a U.S. proposal to extend a wall along the border to keep out migrants, has struck back with radio ads urging Mexican workers to denounce rights violations in the United States. Facing a growing tide of anti-immigrant sentiment north of the border, the Mexican government is also hiring an American public relations firm to improve its image. Mexican President Vicente Fox denounced the U.S. measures, passed by the House of Representatives on Friday, as “shameful” and his foreign secretary, Luis Ernesto Derbez, said Monday the wall was “stupid.”

First off, we are not anti-immigrant in this country. However, we are against ILLEGAL immigration. Even legal immigrants are overwhelmingly against illegal aliens. That doesn’t seem so weird if you consider that they followed the rules and waited for a while to lawfully become citizens and get a little cheesed by line cutters and cheaters.

The changes detailed in this article, if they are actually enforced and followed, may finally signify the government’s willingness to deal with its more retarded immigration procedures. For those not in the know, when an illegal alien is detained, they don’t get deported right away. That would be way too easy and make way too much sense. Instead, we give them a bit of due process and schedule a trial anywhere from 30-90 days to determine whether or not they can stay or get deported. Of course, bail is set and almost always, the detainee is released on their own recognizance and order to reappear for their trial. Did you get that? Are you confused? Perhaps you are just wondering how stupid it is to expect an illegal alien, who has already broke laws by simply being there, to show up for their own trial after they have been set free where they will probably be ruled to have broken immigration laws and subject to deportation. I’m sure you will be SHOCKED, schocked to find out that the rate at which these illegal aliens fail to appear at their immigration hearings is north of 98%. See, I told you that you would be shocked. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Don’t get me wrong, I am very much in favor of legal immigration; it’s just the illegal kind that really gets my goat. We are the greatest country on the face of the Earth and being as such, we can afford to be a bit picky on who we let in. It’s very sad how many Russian and Eastern European PHd’s we either turn down or force to go through a multi-year process of immigration because of how messed up our current system is. Rascist or pragmatic (I’ll let you decide), but I’ll take the Ukranian nuclear physicist over the Guatemalan farm hand any day. Of course, that’s just me.
