Mexico's solution to non-citizens

--posted by Tony Garcia on 5/22/2006

The "Immigration" Issue in the United States is actually about how we should deal with illegal immigrants.

What I find incredible is we are not supposed to battle illegal immigration while other countries are given a pass to battle immigration.

Many of the illegal aliens come from Mexico. Mexico has even had the audacity to enter itself into our domestic policy debate...saying we should keep the borders open. But then we need to keep something else in mind as the Left bashes the anti-illegal immigration people as "racist" and "xenophobic". We at least allow legal aliens, naturalized citizens and of couse citizens to hold jobs.

That is unlike the laws of Mexico.
In Mexico, non-natives are banned from those and thousands of other jobs, even if they are legal, naturalized citizens.

Foreign-born Mexicans can't hold seats in either house of the congress. They're also banned from state legislatures, the Supreme Court and all governorships. Many states ban foreign-born Mexicans from spots on town councils. And Mexico's Constitution reserves almost all federal posts, and any position in the military and merchant marine, for "native-born Mexicans."

Recently the Mexican government has gone even further. Since at least 2003, it has encouraged cities to ban non-natives from such local jobs as firefighters, police and judges.

Mexico's Interior Department -- which recommended the bans as part of "model" city statutes it distributed to local officials -- could cite no basis for extending the bans to local posts.
Hmm, not only do they not allow ILLEGAL aliens to work in their country but they don't want LEGAL aliens or even natualized CITIZENS to hold jobs in Mexico.

I say...we follow their lead slightly. We make it illegal for illegals to hold a job and make it illegal to employ illegals.

And let's talk about the openness of borders in a comparitive manner.
The foreign-born make up just 0.5 percent of Mexico's 105 million people, compared with about 13 percent in the United States, which has a total population of 299 million. Mexico grants citizenship to about 3,000 people a year, compared to the U.S. average of almost a half million.
Yep, we have less than 3x the population but more than 166 times the natualization of citizens.

Unlike Mexico, we are an open country. We just should be cracking down on the ILLEGAL side of immigration.
