Practice What you Preach

The government of Mexico has been very vocal in the recent illegal immigration debate, calling looking for leniency on current illegal immigrants, humane treatment of Mexican citizens here in the U.S. illegally, and a guest worker program to allow Mexican citizens to travel back and forth. However, Mexico apparently doesn’t practice what it preaches. In Mexico, Illegal Immigrants are treated as follows:

  • They are considered felons
  • They are often subject to detention, rape, and robbery by local officials
  • Illegal Immigrants have been known to be beaten to death or shot

Now, I’m definitely not saying we should adapt those practices here. However, shouldn’t Mexico practice a little of what it preaches?

It’s a shame too because Vicente Fox came into office intending to revive Mexico’s economy by making it more capitalistic. If he had kept his word those Mexican constitutional provisions would be a source of debate right now because of people trying to ENTER Mexico.

Of course, we have laws against illegal immigartion. Perhaps we should practice what we preach.

I heard about this on Mark Levin last night. I think American politicians should focus on the American people and their wishes on the illegal immigration issue.
