Tough truth on immigration
I'm embarrassed to say that I just found out some pretty troubling facts on Mexican immigration law. For example:
-It is a felony to be an illegal immigrant in Mexico, the same policy that is being deplored (by myself and others) here in the U.S.
-If you are not a Meixcan citizen, you are forbidden from partaking in any political activity, including protest. So, if the protests and marches that are taking place here were taking place in Mexico, all the undocumented immigrants would be arrested.
-Mexico has its military on both borders, though it firmly opposes the U.S. doing the same
-Mexico deports more illegal immigrants than the U.S.
None of this changes my mind on the current immigration debate in the U.S., but Mexico should either change its draconian laws or simply get out of the U.S. immigration debate until it remedies its hipocritical policies.
