Here's some info regarding mexico's immigration law
factreal.wordpress.com...


•Mexico welcomes only foreigners who will be useful to Mexican society:

• Mexican authorities must keep track of every single person in the country:

• Foreigners with fake papers, or who enter the country under false pretenses, may be imprisoned:

• Foreigners who fail to obey the rules will be fined, deported, and/or imprisoned as felons:

• Under Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony.

• Mexicans who help illegal aliens enter the country are themselves considered criminals under the law:

• The Mexican constitution expressly forbids non-citizens to participate in the country’s political life.

• The Mexican constitution denies equal employment rights to immigrants, even legal ones, in the public sector.

• The Mexican constitution guarantees that immigrants will never be treated as real Mexican citizens, even if they are legally naturalized.

• The Mexican constitution states that foreigners may be expelled for any reason and without due process.


These are just some of the points.

So for those who are complaining about the US, you must also complain about mexico instead of support it, or by default, you must be hypocrites.

This law in a way it is against "the citizen" , because if an American-Citizen looks like a Mexican he will be asked to show his document like a jew in 1939!!!!!!!!!!


Sorry, but that little bird don't fly anymore. I have dark skin, and will be more than happy to show ID to one of our police officers. Why are you afraid of this? Is it because you are illegal too? And for the record, I am not a 14th Amendment "citizen." I am a sovereign of the Republic of Ohio, and I am happy to see we are joining this measure to repel all of the boarders of our fair ship. Just yesterday I saw a family of Mexicans being questioned in the Walmart parking lot. None had any ID. They were driving a brand new Toyota.

I agree. Notice the list. None are southern border states.

Not one of those states matter as far as the illegal problem goes really. Though I'm sure they have their share of problems caused by our intentionally porous borders.

Where is the action from the illegal safe-haven states?

Can you please link us to this photo? That's a pretty ballsy statement to be parading around. I'm not sure if I believe you until you link to it.

I am disapointed to not see Alabama, Georgia, and Florida on there. I understand South Florida would freak out over the law, but I support it. Illegal immigrants willing to work under the table for less than minimum wage are hurting the LEGAL citizens job prospects. The way this is being handled is not only a shot at the citizens, but the LEGAL immigrants who went through the naturalization process.

this is for littlesecret actually...

america ISNT divided about this issue. 80% of americans support the arizona bill. the whole reason for the arizona law was because of popular uproar over illegals. the only people who dont support this law are illegals, their sympathizers and the feds...

I completely agree with you regarding ILLEGALS.
I'm familiar with the photo you're referring to and from what I understand, it was photoshoped. I don't know for sure but the origin of the photo hasn't been substantiated as far as I know.

I ASK THE REAL PROBLEM AND YOU RUN AWAY , WHY? answer the question. IS it a law in mexico that if you leave it is against the law? do not run and hide.



Yeah...going to sleep is "running away".

I don't know Mexico's laws...I don't live there.

But let's think it through a bit...shall we??? Let's reverse the roles here...say Mexico is deporting a bunch of Americans that are in Mexico illegally. They really have no proof that they are Americans...but that is where they are sending them back to. What do you think America is going to do??? Let Mexico just dump them on the streets in a city OR have them drop them off at an ICE detention center until they can process them to confirm they are citizens and belong here?


It's not hard to think things through...just a little bit...and you can get your answer.

here are some signs for you:

www.capsweb.org...
www.saynotoillegalimmigration.com...
www.stopthenorthamericanunion.com... (what the hell do they teach in mexico's history books)
rightwingnews.com...

the only arguement they pro-illegal folks have is a lie. "we are a nation of immigrants" yeah ok, i know that and america lets in a million legals a year, more than any country in the world combined. they try to blur the legal/illegal line by just saying, "immigration", its just a decietful tactic and a lie.

immigrationcounters.com...
22 million plus illegals in the country according to the counter, of those, only 500,000+ are NOT mexican... so when a pro-amnesty illegal person tells you "well what about the non-mexicans?" you can tell them that little stat right there. If people argue that the law focuses on mexicans its because illegal immigransta re almost exclusively mexican!! its just the facts boys and girls.. no racism here at all. playing the race card is the most ignorant thing you could do. it just makes you look stupid and misinformed.

They may not be Mexican but they speak spanish and made it to the US via Mexico. Send them back where they came from.

If they're US citizens, of course we need to take them back. It's pretty obvious.
And it's fairly easy to tell where someone comes from just based on their accent alone let alone genetic ID, finger printing, etc...

But; before an officer can require you to show ID he has to be able to lawfully detain you.


This is not "stop and identify"...this is "arrest and identify".

Texas doesn't even have a stop and identify law...you can check your own wiki article to confirm that.

Here is something else from your article.


Texas Penal Code, Title 8, §38.02(a), reads
“A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information.”



Note where it says this is after the person has been LAWFULLY ARRESTED...not just stopped.


You still can't show me anything that requires someone to SHOW an ID. Give a name...yes...I even said that in my original post (which you ignored).

So what do we do when most of the people in the world come to the US ??

I can't wait to hear your answer for that question !





Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"



It seems that America was once proud to be the country that helped the poor...now it seems like indiviual greed is more important.

You go ahead with that concept of greed...I'll stick with the original sentiment of America and choose to accept those that want to come here looking for the American Dream.

Go ahead and call me whatever name you want because of this...doesn't really matter.

Thanks for not answering my question.
So when is enough...enough?
We take in more immigrants per year then all other countries COMBINED and you say we're selfish and greedy ?? You make no sense.

If we are to take in all 4.5 billion impoverished peoples of the world, as you suggest, where do you suggest we put them? How would we cloth and feed them? etc...

You're trying to make Americans out to be selfish, greedy monsters yet we give till it hurts all over the world...when is it enough for you ????
