"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Mexican Consul Weighs In On State’s Immigration

Pro-illegal immigrant advocates never cease to amaze me. To the Mexican counsul general; mind your own frickin' business. Although I guess it would be easier if we just left it up to someone else to take care of for us. One plus would be for politicians as it would be out of their hands.

From CBS News:

The Mexican consul general said Tuesday that Colorado's tough new immigration laws are creating "a climate of fear and anxiety" among Mexican citizens in the state and could mean they are harassed or denied services they need.

Juan Marcos Gutierrez-Gonzalez said Mexico's minister of foreign affairs, Luis Ernesto Derbez, sent a letter to Colorado Gov. Bill Owens to express his concerns. Derbez said the "migration phenomenon" is complex and the United States needs to find a solution at the federal level.

Um, no actually, we don't do things that way in this country. We are a Republic sir, with something called States Rights. So, every State can make laws just like Colorado and I hope they do just that.

The exchange came a day after Owens signed a package of immigration laws requiring up to 1 million people receiving state and federal benefits to prove they are legal U.S. residents.

The centerpiece legislation requires government agencies to verify that adults 18 and older are entitled to the benefits.

Gutierrez-Gonzalez said he's already receiving worried calls from Mexican citizens asking how they can get a valid Colorado driver's license or a state-issued identity card to comply with the new laws, while others are already thinking about moving.

"Some are asking which is closer, Wyoming or New Mexico," he said.

Who cares? That is no sweat of Colorado's backside. I hope we get laws like this in every state so they will want to know the quickest way back to Mexico.

If the Mexican government spent half the energy it exspends in this country, helping their citizens that here illegally, in their own country, maybe the Mexican people won't want to come here illegally.
