"How Mexico Treats
Our Bible instructs us to have compassion for strangers and lost
souls that find themselves far from home. By any measuring
stick, the USA has gone above and beyond any Biblical
obligation. Please understand that as the Marxist Left pushes us
hard to adopt an entirely new set of values to become a more
equitable society, we are no longer under any obligation to a
government that has dropped God, liberty and prayer from daily
I propose an entirely new set of values conditional upon the
proper individual efforts of any foreign born individual. If
they are entirely free of serious criminal behavior, or multiple
misdemeanors, they may work here to demonstrate their
suitability for citizenship. Then and only then may they apply
for citizenship. I welcome your comments and consideration.
Reminder: How Mexico Treats ‘Undesirable’ Foreigners (Michelle

Why isn't what’s good for the protection of Mexico good for the
American politicians in both parties are stampeding all over
themselves to pander to Mexico and adopt mass
illegal-alien-amnesty schemes. But while the Mexican government
lobbies for more “humane” treatment of illegal border-crossers
from their country into ours, Mexico remains notoriously
restrictionist toward “undesirable” foreigners who break their
laws or threaten their security.
Despite widely touted immigration “reforms” adopted in 2011,
Mexico still puts Mexico first — as any country that is serious
about protecting its sovereignty should and would.
Article 33 of Mexico’s constitution establishes the right of the
president to detain and deport “any foreigner” and prohibits
foreigners from participating “in any way” in the political
affairs of the country.
While you read this passage, dwell on the demagogic rhetoric of
meddling Mexican consular officials and lobbyists who assail
America for its (poorly enforced) detention and deportation
The President of the Republic shall have the
power to expel from national territory any foreigner, according
to the law and after a hearing. The law shall establish the
administrative procedure for this purpose, as well as the place
where the foreigner should be detained and the time for that.
Foreigners may not in any way participate in the political
affairs of the country.
Article 32 of Mexico’s constitution unapologetically bans
non-native-born residents from holding sensitive jobs and
joining the country’s military. Preference is given unabashedly
to Mexicans over foreigners.
While you read this passage, contemplate the inexorable push by
open-borders groups to secure illegal-alien “rights” to American
jobs, American military assignments, American driver’s licenses,
discounted U.S. college tuition, and Obamacare:
Only Mexicans by birth can perform all
government employments, positions, or commissions in which the
status of citizenship is indispensable. During peacetime,
foreigners shall neither serve in the Army nor in the police
bodies. During peacetime, only Mexicans by birth can serve in
the Army, in the Navy or in the Air Force as well can perform
any employment or commission within such corporations.
The same condition applies to captains,
pilots, skippers, ship engineers, flight engineers and, in
general, to every crew member in a ship or an airplane carrying
the Mexican flag. In the same way, only Mexicans by birth can be
port harbormasters, steersmen and airport superintendents.
Mexicans shall have priority over foreigners,
under equal circumstances, for all kind of concessions,
employments, positions or commissions of the government in which
the status of citizenship is not indispensable.
While amnesty advocates and civil-liberties zealots in the U.S.
decry “police state” tactics against illegal aliens, Mexico
fiercely maintains laws against illegal border crossings;
“verification visits” to enforce visa conditions; requirements
that foreigners produce proof of legal status on demand; and
enforcement and cooperation between and among immigration
officials and law-enforcement authorities at all levels in
Mexico. Native-born Mexicans are also empowered to make
citizens’ arrests of illegal aliens and turn them in to
Mexico’s National Catalogue of Foreigners tracks all outside
tourists and foreign nationals. A National Population Registry
tracks and verifies the identity of every member of the
population, who must carry a citizen’s identity card. Visitors
who do not possess proper documents and identification are
subject to arrest at any time. And for those seeking permanent
residency or naturalization, Mexico requires that they must not
be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal
histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show
a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic
independence, pass an exam, and prove they can provide their own
Applicants are assessed based on a point system using factors
such as level of education, employment experience, and
scientific and technological knowledge. Property acquisition and
ownership by foreigners is still severely restricted. Mexican
corporations are banned from hiring illegal aliens.
Exit question: If such self-interested “nativism” is right and
good for the protection and survival of Mexico, why not for the
