As I was reading “Mexican president tells U.S. to control extremists,” I realized that I was angry at the wrong person. Vicente Fox can’t do any more than George Bush will let him do, despite all his high-toned grandstanding.
Fox said he plans to push for U.S. immigration reform during a meeting with President Bush in Texas next week. He also said the two leaders, along with Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin, likely will announce a plan to expand the scope of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission recently issued a warning about several new grass-roots movements inspired by Arizona’s Proposition 200. Other Mexican officials have cited the Minuteman Project, a plan by activists to patrol the Arizona-Mexico border during April, as a sign of rising extremism. (Source)
Fox is messing with the wrong country. This is the spirit of America and its people. Grass-roots movements have always and will continue to rise as long as citizens believe they’re not being represented by the people they put in office. George Bush, if you’re reading this blog, that means YOU!
Fox whines, “We totally reject the idea of these migrant-hunting groups. We will use the law, international law and even U.S. law to make sure that these types of groups, which are a minority…will not have any opportunity to progress.”
The leader of an insignificant third world country thinks he can run the United States and dictate its immigration policy? As if he really cares about his people. This is the real deal: Fox wants all the poor Mexicans out of his country. I call it “class cleansing.” But Fox is about to get a lesson in the new American Revolution. You may punk a country’s leader, who’s beholden to special interest groups and Lord only knows who and else, but you can’t punk its people. That’s why I’m 100 percent behind the Minuteman Project and will support it every chance I get.
Organizers of the Minuteman Project say they have signed up more than 950 volunteers, including 30 pilots with aircraft, to patrol the border for 30 days beginning April 1. The activists say they will notify the Border Patrol if they see border-crossers and will not confront them directly.
Minuteman co-organizer Chris Simcox said participants were exercising their constitutional rights.
“Vicente Fox can rant and rave all he wants, but he obviously doesn’t understand what a democracy means,” Simcox said. “We have been working within the law.”
Watch and learn, Mr. Bush. That’s the way real men talk.
Fox is bellowing hot air. He’s not the problem. The problem is a president who wants to excuse lawbreakers and invite them to stay; stay on welfare and continue overloading the system (follow the link and weep), stay in our jails (more tax dollars), and gain more rights than Americans. Oh, and don’t forget about the national security danger of a wide-open border. See the Federation for American Immigration Reform for all the statistics.
