How does Mexico treat these entering their country illegally?

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

According to Mexico’s immigration laws, Article 32 states you must speak Spanish and must be a professional who is useful to the Mexican society. There are no bilingual programs in the school and no pressing 2 for English. All business must be conducted in Spanish. Investors are welcome but must pay higher than minimum wage and your land purchases are restricted. Article 34 states that foreigners must have the necessary funds to support themselves and their dependents. There are no welfare programs, food stamps, government housing or entitlements.

Article 87 states foreigners must be “physically and mentally healthy.” Articles 73, 85, 86, 87 state foreigners must be on a national population registry, cooperating with federal-local, and municipal police. Article 116 states foreigners using fake documents face a fine and imprisonment. Immigrants must show a birth certificate to show citizenship and must have identification when voting. Articles 117-121 state foreigners who fail to obey laws will be fined, deported, and felons imprisoned. No one is allowed to enter the country with a criminal record.

There is no due process of deportation. There is no 14th Amendment. Law enforcement officers are required to enforce Mexico’s immigration laws at all times. Articles 123-126 make illegal immigration a felony. Articles 127 state any Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner is subject to five years in prison.

The government of Mexico benefits from American policies since their criminals and poor flee to America for many free benefits and a safe haven provided for them. President Trump’s policies are much kinder. He wants to prevent criminals, terrorists, gang members, drug cartels, and human traffickers from entering America. He wants to reduce the tax burden on the American taxpayer, which according to is $383 Billion Dollars annually for healthcare, education, incarceration, and social services. This is far more than the one-time payment of $10 Billion to build a wall and far less than the $140 Billion Obama gave to Iran.

President Trump is for legal immigration and hears the voices of victims that are suffering from the hand of criminals here illegally, who find refuge in sanctuary cities. These sanctuary cities undermine our rule of law to protect criminals and provide them benefits while many Americans live in poverty and struggle to find jobs. Maybe the mayors of sanctuary cities can provide the same love for the families of veterans. If not, they are welcome to move to Mexico where the immigration laws are much stricter. However, don’t call the president of Mexico a “racist” or you may end up in jail or worse – never to be heard from again!
