MEXICO LEADS LATIN COUNTRIES IN SUPPORT OF ACLU LAWSUIT
COJONES. The Spanish word of the day? Nope. Guess again. It’s what it takes – large ones – for Mexico and 13 other Latin American countries to file motions in U.S. federal court expressing opposition to Utah’s new illegal immigration enforcement law.
In its latest display of brazen hypocrisy, Mexico lists several reasons for its opposition to HB497, including the impediment of diplomatic relations, hindering trade and tourism, and possible harassment of Mexican citizens. Say it out loud: TENER CAJONES.
“Mexico respectfully submits that if HB497 is allowed to take effect, it will have significant and long-lasting adverse impact on U.S.-Mexico bilateral relations, and on Mexican citizens and other people of Latin American descent present in Utah.”
IS THE ENTIRE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT HIGH ON PEYOTE BUTTONS, OR WHAT?
Speaking of “high,” the brief was filed in support of a class-action lawsuit brought against Utah by the ACLU, “our nation’s guardian of liberty,” and the National Immigration Law Center, whose mission is “to defend and advance the rights and opportunities of low-income immigrants and their family members.” (If you randomly insert the words “socialist” or “illegal” into these organizations’ mission statements, you’ll get a pretty clear picture of what they’re all about.)
In a separate motion, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay asked to join the brief.
So let’s take a couple of these charges “seriously” for a moment, and see what we can come up with, shall we?
Impediment of Diplomatic Relations. Let me see if I have this right: The cold-blooded murder of American tourists, missionaries and unarmed ICE agents in Mexico poses less of an adverse impact on U.S.-Mexico bilateral relations, than does Utah’s attempt to create a Guest Worker Program, or enforce state law when people enter our country ILLEGALLY? Am I missing something here?
Hindrance of Tourism. Must be that peyote kicking in again. Not sure if you people have looked out your (hopefully bullet-proof) windows lately, but there aren’t a helluva lot of American tourists choosing Mexico as their dream vacation destinations lately. Call us Yankee sissies – but that whole out-of-control murderous drug-war-thing you got goin’ on (mostly) south of the border? No, gracias.
Harassment of Mexican Citizens. You threw this one in just for grins, right? Are you talking about harassment similar to the twice-deported illegal alien’s murder of the Houston police officer recently? Or perhaps you’re referring to the illegal alien charged with triple-murder in Virginia earlier this year? Or Nancy Davis, the American missionary, who was killed in Mexico in January? If I’m on the wrong track here – give me holler.
Listen up chicos, this gringo has a simple suggestion that could solve this whole darn thing – pronto: Just have Barack Obama’s amigo – Felipe Calderón – fax a copy of Mexico’s immigration laws over to the White House and we’ll get working on bringing our laws into alignment with yours, immediately, ¿de acuerdo? Oh, and chicos? Could you please ask Felipe to include a personalized note to Barack telling him it’s okay to proceed? He doesn’t listen to us.
