MEXICO ...abra las orejas
Mexico has reacted furiously to a bill signed into law by the US this week that would fund a border wall and prevent illegal Mexican migrants from obtaining US driving licences....right off the bat I'm stunned, is this the level of ignorance that is leading the Mexican people? Change the word "illegal" to "legal" and There would be no problem... Don't they get it?
In the US, leaders of the Mexican community threatened to strike to send a message to US employers that they could not survive without cheap Mexican labour....Neither would they, go on strike, you'll spend the rest of the year eating out of garbage cans...
Santiago Creel, Mexico's interior secretary, said the “Real ID” law was “negative, inconvenient, and obstructionist”....Yeah, there's lots of things that are inconvenient: stopping at red lights, condoms, paying for your purchases, waiting until you are IN the bathroom before you take a crap... Inconvenient, but they seem like a good idea, right?
“Taking away the possibility of obtaining driving licences for people who are working in legal jobs, who pay their taxes there, who send remittances home here, seems to us to be an extreme measure, particularly given the new understanding that we thought we had after the re-election of President Bush.”...Understand this Paco, come here legally or STAY HOME!
He said the problem of growing immigration could be “resolved by encouraging development in Mexico and Central America, not by building walls and using the border control”....Wow! Work to make your OWN country better, what a concept!
President George W. Bush has said he wants to deal with illegal immigration by creating a temporary guest worker program. But many Republicans are using the anxiety about terrorism to push for a crackdown on illegal immigrants....Terrorism, Illegal, most terrorists are here illegally, are we starting to understand the connection?
What is it going to take for people to understand, we DO NOT mind immigration, but do it legally! ...it's a good idea in any language!
