Illegal immigrants coming from Mexico into the United States has caused many problems for over the past 40 years. In the last 2 years, there has been a complete disregard for the immigration laws at the hands of the illegal immigrants and the Obama administration. Simply put, America is just not strict enough when It comes to enforcing the laws surrounding illegal immigration… until now.
One of President Trump’s campaign promises was to build a border between the US and Mexico. Since He was elected, he has now began to fulfill his promise.
Mexico on the other hand has a very different approach in how It handles illegals into their own country. Mexico also has had Its share of illegal immigrants who sneak in from their own southern border from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. The same reason why those countries seek to enter Mexico, is the same reason why Mexicans seek to enter America. Poor conditions and a lousy government.
So how exactly does Mexico deal with their own illegal immigrants? Let’s take a concise look.
Mexico makes sure that foreign visitors and immigrants in Mexico are:
- in the country legally;
- have the means to sustain themselves economically;
- not destined to be burdens on society;
- of economic and social benefit to society;
- of good character and have no criminal records; and
- contributors to the general well-being of the nation
Mexican law also makes sure that:
- immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
- foreign visitors do not violate their visa status;
- foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
- foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses are imprisoned or deported;
- foreign visitors violating the terms of their entry are imprisoned or deported;
- those who aid in illegal immigration will be sent to prison
The Mexican constitution, the Ley General de Población, (General Law on Population), specifically explains the country’s immigration policy.
- Foreigners are admitted into Mexico “according to their possibilities of contributing to national progress.” (Article 32)
- Immigration officials must “ensure” that “immigrants will be useful elements for the country and that they have the necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents. (Article 34)
- Foreigners may be barred from the country if their presence upsets “the equilibrium of the national demographics,” when foreigners are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” when they do not behave like good citizens in their own country, when they have broken Mexican laws, and when “they are not found to be physically or mentally healthy.” (Article 37)
- The Secretary of Governance may “suspend or prohibit the admission of foreigners when he determines it to be in the national interest.” (Article 38)
- Federal, local and municipal police must cooperate with federal immigration authorities upon request, i.e., to assist in the arrests of illegal immigrants. (Article 73)
- A National Population Registry keeps track of “every single individual who comprises the population of the country,” and verifies each individual’s identity. (Articles 85 and 86)
- A national Catalog of Foreigners tracks foreign tourists and immigrants (Article 87), and assigns each individual with a unique tracking number (Article 91).
- Foreigners with fake immigration papers may be fined or imprisoned. (Article 116)
- Foreigners who sign government documents “with a signature that is false or different from that which he normally uses” are subject to fine and imprisonment. (Article 116)
- Foreigners who fail to obey a deportation order are to be punished. (Article 117)
- Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years. (Article 118)
- Foreigners who violate the terms of their visa may be sentenced to up to six years in prison (Articles 119, 120 and 121). Foreigners who misrepresent the terms of their visa while in Mexico — such as working with out a permit — can also be imprisoned.
- “A penalty of up to two years in prison and a fine of three hundred to five thousand pesos will be imposed on the foreigner who enters the country illegally.” (Article 123)
- Foreigners with legal immigration problems may be deported from Mexico instead of being imprisoned. (Article 125)
- Foreigners who “attempt against national sovereignty or security” will be deported. (Article 126)
- A Mexican who marries a foreigner with the sole objective of helping the foreigner live in the country is subject to up to five years in prison. (Article 127)
- Shipping and airline companies that bring undocumented foreigners into Mexico will be fined. (Article 132)
Ok, did this just blow our mind when you read this? This is the same government that condones Its own citizens illegal actions against another country, while at the same time enforces very strict laws against the same actions. It is completely hypocritical altogether.
Now you know the truth. Please share It as much as you can to silence the debate on wether immigrants from Mexico should be in America illegally.
