Mexican government

Corrupt, activist government that has a tremendous amount of political power inside the U.S. Mexico receives around $20 billion per year that their citizens who are in the U.S. legally or illegally send home, giving them a financial motivation to encourage "migration" by any means necessary. By sending people north, they also get rid of people who might otherwise remain there and push for reform.

Mexico has power inside the U.S. due to politicians willing to push their agenda; president George W Bush even made a pledge to that government and the people of Mexico that he'd push for comprehensive immigration reform. They're also directly linked to a few U.S. non-profit organizations (such as the ACLU) and indirectly linked to dozens more. Also linked to some of the main organizers of 2006's illegal immigration marches, and that government may have used proxies to agitate their citizens to take to our streets in an attempt to change our laws. Many local bureaucrats are willing to collaborate with them as well, such as by allowing them to pass out their Matricula Consular ID cards on public property. Has conducted at least one advertising campaign inside the U.S. in order to push their agenda, with the assistance of the George W Bush-linked Rob Allyn.

One of the ways they agitate inside the U.S. is through the Institute for Mexicans Abroad, an advisory committee to the Mexican government made up of Mexican partisans who live in the U.S. (including U.S. citizens).

Bush admin was working on North American Union ("integrating" U.S., Canada and Mexico into one community) - 05/06/11

A few years ago, one of the biggest conspiracy theories concerned a North American Union, an attempt to join the U.S., Canada, and Mexico together in some sort of community similar to the EU. An endless series of establishment hacks claimed that there was no such plan and that it was all just a paranoid fantasy.

Utah to start own "guest" worker program, collaborating with Mexican government; Shurtleff; HB466 - 03/02/11

Utah is pushing to start their own state-level guest workers program, and they hope to work with the Mexican government (specifically the state of Nuevo Leon) to do it. This program will almost assuredly reduce wages for Americans in that state, it will probably lead to more illegal immigration (due to the network effect), and it will probably also lead to more mixed status families (i.e., Mexican citizen parents and U.S. citizen children). Their first step is a bipartisan bill (HB466) sponsored by state senator Curt Bramble and state representative [Stephen Sandstrom and promoted by Utah...

Haley Barbour lobbied for Mexican government, now misleads about amnesty - 02/15/11

Mississippi governor Haley Barbour is so bad on immigration that in 2001 he lobbied for the Mexican government on a "mini-amnesty". If you aren't familiar with that government's activities inside the U.S., see that link. Now that his lobbying activities [1] have come to light, he's responded by misleading about amnesty and promoting very bad policies. From a statement he released in response [2]: "Before there can be immigration reform, we must secure our borders. Only after that can any reforms be achieved, and those can’t include amnesty... Everybody knows we are not going to put ten or...

Obama, Democrat, far-left opposition to Arizona immigration law giving comfort to Mexico - 06/23/10

Sara Miller Llana of the Christian Science Monitor lets us know that "Mexico sees silver lining in Arizona immigration law" (link). You might call it giving comfort (if not aid), but that's only because you're an American: From the view south of the border, times could not be worse in terms of America's disregard for Mexico. But a curious thing is happening. Mexicans are also seeing a new level of American discontent percolating over US immigration initiatives, much of it coming from unexpected corners. “I know that there are many Americans for the law, but there are many against it too,”...

Mexican government challenges Arizona immigration law in court (ACLU's suit) - 06/22/10

The Mexican government is now taking legal action against the new Arizona immigration law, filing a brief in support of "Friendly House", the suit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU is also directly collaborating with that government on a related matter; whether this comes as a surprise to them or whether they helped bring it about isn't known. However, it puts the ACLU and other far-left groups, the Mexican government, and the Obama administration all on the same page. From this: A 28-page amicus curiae brief filed in U.S. District Court says that Mexico has a "...

Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden wear anti-Arizona law bracelets at Mexican president's speech - 05/22/10

A couple of days ago, the Democrats in Congress gave Mexican president Felipe Calderon a standing ovation after he criticized the new Arizona immigration law on the House floor. It gets even worse, as shown on this video: peekURL.com/vjxddf4 Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and no doubt others were wearing rubber bracelets designed to show solidarity against Arizona's law during the Calderon speech.

Joe Baca (link): As part of his general boycott of Arizona -- which includes his refusal to fly through Phoenix on his weekly trips to and from Washington -- Baca, D-...

The Mexican government has issued a "Travel Alert" in regards to the new Arizona immigration law; it can currently be found at www.sre.gob.mx/english (the Spanish-language version at [1] appears to say the same thing): In recent days there have been public demonstrations and protests in different cities against the decision of the Governor of the state to sign the law. The events have always been peaceful. It is important to act with prudence and respect local laws. The events haven't all been peaceful; see peekURL.com/v2eqy5q And, of course, it's rich to hear that government suggest that...

Mexico wants trade sanctions over Oklahoma remittances tax - 04/18/10

From his press release (link): In response to the Mexican government’s efforts to "bully" the people of Oklahoma through a trade war, (Oklahoma) state Rep. Randy Terrill today called for imposing "much tougher sanctions on illegal aliens." "This represents an attempt by a foreign nation to interfere with the sovereign actions of a U.S. state," said Terrill, R-Moore. "We clearly not only have the right, but the responsibility to legislate for the public health, safety, morals and welfare of our citizens – not theirs. ...This week the Mexican House of Representatives passed a resolution...

Gallup: Americans more favorable on Egypt than Mexico; 62% of young favorable on China; more - 02/19/10

Gallup asked Americans whether their "overall opinion" of various countries was favorable or not, and the results are here. First, it needs to be pointed out that asking for someone's opinion of a whole country should be meaningless: is the opinion about their current leadership, what they'd be like if the leadership changed, or what?

Mexican senate unhappy; Obama's bogus border enforcement push not bogus enough - 02/07/10

The article with the translated title "Mexican Senate reproaches U.S. for measures against migrants" appeared in El Sol de Mexico on 2/4/10 and is translated here: The Senate of the Republic (of the Mexican government) approved sending a message to President Felipe Calderon so that he may ask the Government of the United States to reconsider the anti-immigrant measures intended to be taken in the neighboring country’s budget for 2011. All political parties of the Senate reproached the policy change of direction of the American President, Barack Obama, who has decided to go back on the promise...

Mexican consul: Mexicans have "issues that make us not look very good" - 01/22/10

The new Mexican consul general for Dallas, Juan Carlos Cue-Vega, thinks Mexicans need an image makeover (link). He says: "Frankly, we have spoken about the issues that make us not look very good, like celebrations using guns, littering, [being] noisy in the neighborhoods, leaving the kids at home while going to work. These are social and cultural things that we need to change." ... The vast majority of Mexican immigrants are hard workers lured here by jobs, he says, but they don't always think about the responsibilities and behavioral changes that U.S. residency involves. "We have to educate...

The Economist in 2004: "More Mexicans, please" (promoted home loans to illegal aliens) - 12/14/09

I haven't looked into how much of the mortgage mess is due to financial institutions giving mortgages to low-wage workers, including illegal aliens from Mexico; for that, see Steve Sailer. Some but not all of it was, making the June 10, 2004 article from The Economist called "More Mexicans, please" (no author given; economist.com/world/unitedstates/displaystory.cfm?story_id=2752598) a cautionary tale about a) giving in to corruption, and b) trusting The Economist: NATIVISTS in Texas and Arizona may still want to keep Mexicans out of America, but in the mid-west, far from the border, a growing...

Census Bureau collaborating with foreign consuls - 11/10/09

From this: In an effort to allay any fears between the immigrant community and federal authorities, officials with the 2010 Census met with consuls of several Latin American countries to ask for support in their communities to spread the word about the importance of being counted. “It is vital that every person living in the United States takes part to assure accurate representation and funding for vital services”, said Marycarmen Moran, promoter of the 2010 Census, adding that the consuls agreed to do all they can to make the census a success. Those present included, of course,...

ACLU-Mexico partnership calls for nearly open borders; "humanitarian crisis" they helped cause - 09/30/09

In April 2008, the San Diego chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union announced a collaboration with Mexico’s National Commission of Human Rights, a quasi-governmental agency. They've now released a report in which they - surprise - oppose border enforcement and call for what would amount to nearly open borders. The report is entitled "Humanitarian Crisis: Migrant Deaths at the U.S.-Mexico Border", but what they fail to note is the role that they and all others who oppose immigration enforcement have played in those deaths. If the ACLU and other far-left and racial power groups had...

Janet Murguia of NCLR gets Mexican government's highest award for foreigners; Sarukhan promotes Latino voting, participation - 06/08/09

Back on May 5, the Mexican government gave their highest award for foreigners - the "Ohtli Award" - to Janet Murguia of the National Council of La Raza. That award is basically given to putative Americans who help the government of Mexico push their agenda inside the U.S.; a list of past winners is here. Per Google's accurate translation, those awards: recognize the contribution of the winners to the empowerment of Mexican communities and Mexican-American in United States (que reconocen la contribución de los galardonados al empoderamiento de las comunidades mexicana y mexicano-americana en...

Mexico epidemiology chief: WHO ignored concerns about swine flu for over a week - 05/02/09

From this: Mexico's chief epidemiologist (Dr. Miguel Angel Lezana, director of the National Epidemiology Center) accused the World Health Organization of being slow to respond to the country's warning about a health crisis that turned into a global swine flu scare and called for an investigation. [He] told The Associated Press late Thursday his center alerted the Pan American Health Organization on April 16 about alarming occurrences of flu and atypical pneumonia in Mexico. But no action was taken until eight days later when the World Health Organization said it was "very, very concerned" the...

CA LULAC: U.S.-Mexico border might not be valid; legalize Mexican illegal aliens; wants international arbitration - 04/21/09

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is a considered-mainstream group that in the past has been pandered to by George W Bush, John Kerry, John McCain, and Barack Obama and presented as mainstream by the MSM despite having at least a national treasurer who's an extremist. Now, over to Casey Wian on CNN's Lou Dobbs show (transcript link): WIAN: LULAC claims that 2008 Supreme Court decision in a Texas death penalty case involving a Mexican citizen could render the 1848 border treaty [of Guadalupe Hidalgo] invalid because Congress failed to make the treaty binding on individual...

Mexican consul: "We're not demanding amnesty but immigration reform." (travel boycott) - 03/21/09

A group of illegal immigration opponents including the California Coalition for Immigration Reform are passing out fliers encouraging tourists to visit the U.S. southwest instead of Mexico (link). More on the boycott below, but first: [Orange County, CA] Mexican Consul Carlos Rodríguez y Quezada disputes the fliers' claims that Mexico urges amnesty, is violent and is a bad neighbor. "We've always been good friends and good neighbors," he said. "We're not demanding amnesty but immigration reform." 1. Mexico isn't in the position to start "demanding" things, especially something that the vast...

Mexican trucks on U.S. highways program on hold... for now (Ron Kirk) - 03/11/09

From this: The Obama administration will try to reinvent a program to allow Mexican trucks full access to U.S. highways. An 18-month-old pilot program that allowed a few Mexican trucks beyond a border buffer zone died when President Barack Obama signed a sweeping $410 billion government spending bill on Wednesday. The bill barred spending on the pilot program. A spokeswoman for the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, Debbie Mesloh, said Obama has told the office to work with Congress, the Transportation and State departments and Mexican officials to come up with legislation to create "a...

Cement: another way stimulus money will flow to China (and Mexico, Canada, Korea...) - 02/08/09

A large part of the stimulus bill will go towards "shovel-ready" infrastructure projects involving heavy construction. And, that's going to require a lot of cement. In 2007, it looks like the U.S. used about 110 million metric tons of portland cement, at the same time as importing almost 23 million metric tons of cement and clinker (Portland Cement Association, link): About 83% of cement and clinker imported in 2007 came from five major countries: China, Canada, Columbia, Mexico, and the Republic of Korea. Imports from China in 2007 declined to 7.5 million metric tons down 41.0% from 2006...

Ill, 88-year-old WWII vet held in Mexican jail on possibly trumped-up charges; anyone seen the feds? - 01/24/09

An 88-year-old World War 2 veteran visited Mexico a couple weeks ago with his grandson and was taking photographs as souvenirs. In one case, he took a photo of two young girls - fully clothed and only neck up - and paid their mother $25 as she asked. Mexican police accused him of engaging in another sort of activity, but there were no questionable photos found on his camera. Now, he and the grandson are stuck in a Mexican prision and he's apparently suffering from pneumonia (link). And, the prosecuting attorney apparently wanted $2000 to make the whole thing go away. While the facts of the...

Mexican government lobbied to prevent Ramos, Compean from being released - 01/22/09

On yesterday's Lou Dobbs show, Casey Wian said this about the Ramos and Compean commutation: Mexico's Deputy Secretary of Foreign Relations Carlos Rico (ph) said, quote, "this is a message of impunity, it's difficult to understand." He also acknowledged that Mexican officials had lobbied hard to prevent the former Border Patrol agent's release. UPDATE: There's much more on this in the 1/22 transcript. Various congressmen think there was extensive involvement by the Mexican government in the case; hopefully an investigation into contacts between that government and the Bush administration will...

U.S. military: Mexican government could suddenly collapse (and what you can do) - 01/14/09

The U.S. Joint Forces Command "Joint Operating Environment (JOE 2008)" report names Pakistan and Mexico as two states that could suddenly collapse (link): "The Mexican possibility may seem less likely, but the government, its politicians, police and judicial infrastructure are all under sustained assault and press by criminal gangs and drug cartels. How that internal conflict turns out over the next several years will have a major impact on the stability of the Mexican state. Any descent by Mexico into chaos would demand an American response based on the serious implications for homeland...
