Raul Diaz of the Mexican Superintendence of Tax Administration confirmed this week that the Mexican government intends to build a wall along the Mexican/Guatemalan border. Diaz claims that the official purpose of the wall is to prevent the passage of contraband, but has also admitted “It could also prevent the free passage of illegal immigrants.”

Defending the decision to construct the wall, Mexico’s National Commission on Human Rights states that 500,000 people from Central America cross into Mexico illegally every year.


Dave Gibson of The Examiner notes the hypocrisy in the Mexican government’s sudden change of heart as the Mexican authorities have long criticized the United States for the construction of a fence along a United States/Mexican border. Likewise, Mexico asserts that the passage of 500,000 people from Central America into Mexico is an appropriate reason for a fence, but that many people annually cross into the state of Arizona alone. Yet, that has not stopped Mexico from criticizing Arizona for the introduction of its immigration law, Senate Bill 1070.


Of course, this is not the first time the American people have encountered hypocrisy from the Mexican government regarding illegal immigration. In an article entitled “How Mexico Treats Its Illegal Aliens,” conservative writer Michelle Malkin outlined Mexico’s treatment of illegal aliens, which could be dubbed “intolerant, hateful, and discriminatory,” in the words of Calderon. Mexico demands a number of things from its illegals, particularly that they contribute to the “economic and social interests” of the country, while not upsetting “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” But can’t that be construed as a form of racial and ethnic profiling — the same over which the Mexican government articulated concerns when Arizona passed its immigration law?


It seems, however, that the old adage “what goes around comes around” is true. Just as Mexico has opposed construction of an American/Mexican border fence, the Guatemalan government is now speaking out against the Mexican government for the same reason and with the same arguments used by the Mexican government against the United States.

I'm struggling to see a silver lining somewhere in this.....

Considering that Obama's redistribution of wealth religious beliefs have us now loaning Brazil 2 billion dollars for oil exploration and loaning Mexico 1 billion dollars to drill in the Gulf where he has ordered the permanent sealing of many wells leased to U.S. companies I guess the silver lining is that at least we aren't also paying for Mexico's wall..............yet.

Do I hear an "amen" that our government is totally screwed up under the insanity of this current administration and congress?

I working as a detention officer for ICE in Tacoma for four years. ALL of the Mexican's I supervised in the holding units felt that they have a GOD given right to be here, and they are extremely confused about what the U.S. laws stand for.
