Mexico Demands U.S. Allow More Immigration

Deb at EIMC blogged

Diplomats from Mexico and Central America on Monday demanded guest worker programs
I actually support a guest worker program, where each prospective guest worker would be subjected to health tests and a criminal background test, and where each would carry an ID card that was impossible to forge, and which had a photo, a fingerprint, and the date after which the holder must be back in his home country
and the legalization of undocumented migrants in the United States,
I totally oppose that, but I would be willing for them to get a guest worker card, under the same conditiions as describead above, along with the payment of a stiff fine.
while criticizing a U.S. proposal for tougher border enforcement.
I totally support tougher border enforcement, including building the wall(s) and use of the National Guard on to supplement the Border Patrol.
Read the whole sorry story…
Oh, that’s nice. Last I looked Mexico still didn’t allow an American to own land over there. I wonder how that would work if we were to “demand” they change this law? If all of Mexico is going to move up here we’re eventually going to need more room. That way all can contribute to the tax fund. Illegal is illegal. If they want to change our laws they should become citizens and then vote accordingly. I think this should go in the “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” category….

Confused ByTheTruth blogged illegal immigration is well... illegal. People who come into the country illegally should be removed. Period.

RightVoices blogged The only reason they want this is because the “illegal immigrants” send billions of dollars back to their economies while not draining any of their countries resources.

Desert Rat blogged Oh ya...cross our borders illegally...sneak into our country...and DEMAND driver's licenses! Hey Wetback: we HAVE a LEGAL immigration process...why don't you follow that????

You make some great points. I like the idea of giving those that are already here one last chance to comply with our laws. After that you should be treated just as our citizens are when they break the law: fines, jail time and/or deportation.
P.S. Thanks for the trackback - I'm glad to see it works :D

Absolutely. The Dems are wringing their hands about what do we do about the illegals, and saying we might as well make them citizens. Clearly I don't want to do that, but rounding them all up and deporting them is too expensive. The simplest thing is to either have them deport themselves, i.e. cross back over the border to get a free guest worker ID, or let them pay a fine to get one here, but in either case we know where they are. And any state that wants to give them a drivers license must give them one clearly marked that they also need to show their guest worker ID card, which says when they must go back to Mexico to get it reneewed.
