there's those pesky Facts again ;)
CALDERON: It was true, but it is not anymore. We derogate or we erased that part of the law…Not anymore, since one year ago. And that is the reason why we are trying to establish our own comprehensive public policy talking about, for instance, immigrants coming from Central America. […]
BLITZER: Immigration is not a crime, you’re saying?
CALDERON: It’s not a crime.
BLITZER: I read an article in “The Washington Times” the other day. I’m going to read a paragraph to you and you tell me if this is true or not true. […] “Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to reenter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.” Is that true?
Yesterday, on CNN’s the Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer probed Mexican President Felipe Calderón about his country’s own immigration laws. Blitzer quoted a piece printed in the Washington Times entitled “Mexico’s illegals laws tougher than Arizona’s.” According to the article, “under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison.” The Washington Times then quotes Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ), and Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) calling Calderón “arrogant and hypocritical.” However, it appears the Washington Times and the GOP sources it quotes relied on dated information.
Calderón informed Blitzer last night that Mexico has enacted its own immigration reform:
Well Mod, You can't cross back into Trumpland if you are in Jail in Mexico.
Washington Times: Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.
"Try crossing into Mexico illegally"...... That's not such a big deal...., it's getting back into trumpland that could have repercussions,beright.
OWO...thats true...many folks around here try to grow as many crops as the growing season allows. i think this simple fact indicates why so many farms are family owned and operated..or at least operated if not a contract grower. it reminds me of as a kid looking forward to professional sporting events as i sold newspapers at the entrance gate. very lurative...especially before the digital age.
Growers and others need these folks as cheap labor . Most move from season to season where they are needed . Trumps wall will just make food more exspensive !
I was watching them work in the community. where were you? we need to change the "don't want" to the "do want". the problem is getting the people to understand that those jobs don't change so the people have to change. now how that is achieved is the issue...an argument that allows a solution to elude us.
Where were you when Dubya said that we need these people to do the jobs americans dont want ?
I see in your little world the sky remains falling !
We DON'T HAVE an "immigration problem" either.
WE have an illegal alien invasion problem.
As with all things of political-speech today, we cant call a spade a spade for fear of offending someone.
Some how I dont think it would be a problem ! Its not like they have a immigration problem !
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump vowed on Monday to close U.S. borders as soon as he took office.
"The first thing I'd do in my first day as president is close up our borders so that illegal immigrants cannot come into our country," Trump said in a Twitter question and answer session from Twitter's New York office.
"People can come into our country, but only legally. I will close up those borders,"
Make good sense.
Try crossing into Mexico illegally..........
You need to look a little deeper ! The numbers arent wha youre hoping for !
