It is time to boycott Mexico. The US is the largest importer of Mexican products and its largest trading partner. Mexico is in the process of
invading the Southern US and is meddling in our laws by putting pressure on US courts.
An organized boycott of Mexico could have an impact. A few items that collectively the citizens of the US could boycott include:
- Any and all travel to Mexico
- Mexican grown produce. By law the origin of produce is listed on packages
- Alcohol – Jose Cuerevo, Corona, Tecate and the rest of the Mexican beers and liquors
- Mexican textiles
- Don’t go to a Mexican restaurant. An ethnic restaurant is essentially a celebration of a culture. Don’t celebrate the culture of a nation
that is invading us.
- Mexican foodstuffs like tortillas, corn chips, salsa, etc
- Firms that employ Mexican labor. Trade groups such as roofers, landscapers, car washes, etc. If you hire someone to do a job, ask up front if
they use illegal labor. Insist on proof and if it is not provided, hire someone else. There are plenty of firms out there which advertise licensed
workers. Insist on it. If you have doubts, hire someone else or use a competitor.
- Non-Mexican products that are manufactured all or in part in Mexico
o Autos – Honda, VW, GM, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes. By law an auto firm has to tell you where the individual parts included in the vehicle are
produced. If it has Mexican components, don’t buy it. Same with car parts
o Coke a Cola. The second largest bottling plant is in Mexico. If you live west of the Mississippi and drink Coke, its bottled in Mexico. Drink
Pepsi if you are so inclined to drink cola
While doing that, vacation in Arizona and support Arizona businesses and encourage others to do the same.
Will this have a massive impact? Probably not. Will it have an impact? I think it could have an impact if the initiative got large enough. At
a minimum it could make you feel that in your small way you are doing something about this business.
